Pokemon Go December 2020 Field Research Tasks and Rewards

Field Research Tasks are defined as missions which are to be completed by a Trainer and after they are completed, there are rewards such as Stardust, berries and most importantly, encounters with Pokemon.

A Trainer can get these types of tasks by spinning Pokestops. When a task is completed, not only a Trainer gets a reward, but they also get a stamp for the Research Breakthrough. When the player has seven stamps, one per day, they can get an encounter with a special Pokemon, Stardust, candies or berries, and XP.

As a December Special, Niantic said that it will either be Lapras or Unovan Darumaka, paired up with bonus XP. These Pokemon will start being the “special encounter” on Tuesday, December 1st, 2020 and will leave us on Friday, January 1st, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. PST (GMT-8).

We decided to post the list of the Field Research Tasks and their rewards down below, so go and take a look.
