The full list of field research tasks and breakthrough rewards have been confirmed in Pokemon Go for September and October.
Upon obtaining seven field research stamps you will encounter Eevee. This won't be any old Eevee though, as it will be the special flower crown edition.
The official Pokemon Go post writes: "Don’t miss your chance to evolve them into all the available Eevee Evolutions." Presumably this is referring to the flower crown version and not Eevee in general.
Leafeon and Glaceon are the most recent Eevee evolutions additions to Pokemon Go and they can still be obtained by using the lure evolution trick. However, this isn't the only way to get the popular ice and grass-type Eevee evolutions as there is also a one time nickname you can use.
The same applies to the older Eevee evolutions such as Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon. Once again though, the nickname can only be used once, so use it at the right time!
Elsewhere, Espeon and Umbreon can also be evolved using the buddy trick. Providing either of these are your buddy Pokemon and have earned two berries, then evolving at night will get you Umbreon and during the day, Espeon.
The full list of September and October field research tasks are as follows:

Field research tasks, breakthrough rewards and special quests are all a big part of Pokemon Go and understanding them is essential to being a good trainer.
In addition to understanding it, it is also vital to know how to manage your research - choosing which field research tasks to complete, saving stamps, etc.
This will let you earn research breakthroughs once a week and in turn giving you as many as possible, maximizing the chances of a shiny or high IV encounter.
