Pokemon Go October 2020 Field Research Tasks and Rewards

This year, in Pokemon GO, October will be a month full of events, new Field Research tasks, and a new Research Breakthrough encounter.

Each time you complete the 7 days of Field Research tasks, you will encounter the Pokemon called Shedinja. There is also a big chance that this encounter will have a Shiny Shedinja, which will give you a motivation to keep on completing more Field Research tasks.

It is known by now that you get tasks through spinning PokeStops. There is also a bonus one given by the game itself. Right now, there isn’t any limit on how many tasks you can complete per day, but this does not matter because you only get one stamp per day.

Once you obtain seven stamps, you will have a Research Breakthrough, which will grant you an encounter with Shedinja.
