Pokemon Go August 2020 Field Research Tasks and Rewards

It seems like August will be a very exciting month for Pokemon Go fans. We’re looking forward to a new batch of Field Research tasks, rewards, encounters, Spotlight Hour events every Tuesday, and the three upcoming Ultra Unlock Bonus week events. We are sure that you will be on cloud nine, mainly because Niantic decided to pack August up with many interesting events.

From the info we have, if you get seven stamps, as a Research Breakthrough reward you will get Scraggy. There is a big chance that you will get the Shiny version of Scraggy, so complete as many Field Research tasks as you can.

To refresh your memory, to get Field Research tasks, you need to spin PokeStops.
