Pokemon Go Field Research Tasks Rewards Research Breakthrough December 2021

Trainers, December 2021 brings new Field Research tasks, rewards, Pokemon encounters, and Deino as Research Breakthrough encounter.

As with every beginning of the month, Niantic releases a new set of Field Research tasks and rewards that brings a thrill to the game. Along with the new set of tasks, the Research Breakthrough encounter also changes, and to get to this encounter, you will need to collect seven stamps from completing seven Field Research tasks. In December 2021, as a Research Breakthrough encounter, we will have Deino and its Shiny form.

To get more Field Research tasks, all you need to do is to spin a PokeStop disc and it will momentarily give you a new task with cool rewards and activities. Keep in mind that you only get one stamp per day.

Here are the December 2021 Field Research tasks and rewards.
