A new month is underway and players are getting a new set of Field Research tasks and rewards.
These so-called “Field Research tasks” can be obtained through PokeStops. Once you spin a PokeStop’s Photo Discs, you should get few rewards and a Field Research task. Each completed mission will give you either an XP reward, some other items, or Pokemon encounters.
The usual tasks are “Make a number of Great Throws”, ” Hatch Eggs” and so on. There is no limit on how many Field Research tasks you can complete in a day. Keep in mind that only the first task that you clear daily, will give you a stamp. If you get seven stamps, there will be Research Breakthrough, which gives even more rewards and even an encounter with a rare Pokemon.
It has been confirmed that starting from May 1st, 1 PM PDT until June 1st, 1 PM, the new breakthrough reward will be the Flash Pokemon Shinx, which will be accompanied by Shinx Candies.
