Pokemon Go Field Research October 2022, All Tasks, Rewards, and Pokemon Encounters

Completing a Field Research task is another way (among many), and the easiest, to get what you need to satisfy your needs in Pokemon Go. Meaning that completing a Field Research task will reward you PokeBalls, Stardust, Pokemon encounters, and so on.

For the ones that are just beginning with the game, and do not know what are these and how to get them, the simplest way to explain is that a Field Research task is the easiest way of getting items that you might need to evolve a Pokemon, to power up a Pokemon or to even catch a Pokemon. To get a Field Research task you need to spin the Disc of the nearest PokeStop, and if it seems that the task you have gotten is a little bit harder, you can delete it and try again for a different one.

After completing a Field Research task, you will get a stamp. Collecting seven stamps will grant you more important rewards and an encounter with the monthly Breakthrough Pokemon. For October 2022 that Pokemon is Shedinja. Also, for the first time, Shedinja can be encountered shiny.

To keep things moving, and more exciting, Niantic tends to change Field Research tasks and the rewards for completing them on a monthly basis. At times, there are “boring” rewards, but when Niantic decides to go crazy, well, the rewards are superior. So naturally, since it is the beginning of a new month, October 2022, there will be a few changes to the Field Research tasks and rewards.

So for October 2022, here is the full list of Field Research tasks, including the rewards for completing them.
