Pokemon Go Field Research December 2022, List of All Tasks and Rewards

The Season of Mythical Wishes has arrived, surprised us, and is here to stay for the next three months. The Mythical Wishes Season also brings new Field Research tasks and Pokemon encounters in December 2022, so let’s take a look at the new tasks and rewards.

This new Season in Pokemon is all about celebrating the Hoenn region in the Pokemon universe and is bringing us some knowledge about Hoenn, its Pokemon, and their way of loving. With that, Trainers will enjoy a lot of bonuses too.

Niantic’s habit of refreshing the game on a monthly basis is to bring a new set of Field Research tasks. This also applies to December 2022, the current month. A Field Research task is obtainable by spinning a PokeStop Disc and then completing it. After finishing the task, you will get a stamp, and if you collect seven stamps, then you will get to what is called a Research Breakthrough.

As we mentioned above, Niantic has a habit of releasing a new ‘wave’ of Field Research tasks, and for December 2022, the Research Breakthrough encounters can be Galarian Mr. Mime ( its Shiny form will be available too), Delibird, Bagon, Deino, Furfrou or Goomy.

Now onto the newest Field Research tasks. Here is the list of the Field Research tasks for December 2022.
