A new month in Pokemon Go means a new set of Field Research. Here is the full list of tasks and rewards for September.
It's an interesting time for Field Research as due to the current 'play at home' initiative tasks are given to trainers automatically on a daily basis. This negates the need to go to PokeStops to find your own.
However, these given Field Research tasks don't earn you a Pokemon encounter. Instead, they will give you some form of item and earn you a stamp.
Many trainers like the chance to hone in on specific tasks to find particular species. Depending on that species, too, it gives trainers the chance to find those elusive Shiny Pokemon.
