Pokémon GO Adventures Abound field research tasks and rewards September 2023

Trainers, are you ready to add some new chapters to your Pokémon GO adventures? The “Adventures Abound” season has just kicked off, and let me tell you – it’s got plenty to keep you on your toes for the next three months. Expect a smorgasbord of Field Research tasks, coveted rewards, and even the chance to encounter Pokémon in their shiny forms.

If you’re not up to speed, Field Research has been an integral part of Pokémon GO since 2018. The beauty lies in the tasks; complete them, and you’ve got yourself some one-of-a-kind rewards and Research Breakthroughs. For long-time fans and newcomers alike, Field Research provides those gotta-catch-’em-all feels all over again.

Remember the times when Field Research tasks would rotate monthly? Yeah, we’re past that. Since the Season of Hidden Gems was introduced in June 2023, Pokémon GO switched to a seasonal rotation for Field Research tasks. The exception, of course, is the ever-spinning Spinda, which still has its own special task that stands the test of time. This time we have Spinda #6.

September’s here with a lineup that combines both new and tried-and-true Field Research tasks. It’s like a ‘Best Of’ album, but for Pokémon GO tasks. Whether you’re eager for fresh challenges or sentimental for some old tasks, September won’t disappoint.

Seal the deal with seven completed tasks, and get ready for the Research Breakthrough rewards. Your September loot can include Galarian Farfetch’d, Larvitar, Sableye, Bagon, Furfrou, or Goomy. And guess what? They all come with a shiny variant if you’re looking to add some sparkle to your collection.

Hey there, I'm Dejan! Let me take you through my life, where family, gaming, and CrossFit play prominent roles. Since day one, I've been surrounded by the love and support of my family. Growing up, every moment spent with my parents and siblings was filled with warmth and laughter, creating memories I hold dear. As a parent now, I've experienced a whole new level of love and responsibility. My two wonderful kids bring endless joy and a sense of purpose to my life. In the digital realm, I found my passion - gaming. Whether I'm conquering the world of Apex Legends or embarking on adventures in Pokemon Go, gaming fuels my sense of adventure and competition. Beyond the virtual world, I discovered the exhilaration of CrossFit. The challenging workouts, camaraderie with fellow fitness enthusiasts, and constant drive to push my limits have become an integral part of my life. Balancing family time, gaming, and CrossFit has been a journey of self-discovery. Each passion complements the other, bringing fulfillment and joy to my daily routine.


  1. Hey – I just now (Sept 1) got 2 “use 5 razz berry” tasks – one gave me a plant-burmy and the other gave me a wurmple as rewards.
