Pokémon GO Adventures Abound Season field research tasks and rewards in October 2023

We are already a month deep into Adventures Abound Season, and so far, we all had some great time. Sadly, we have a month left, but that isn’t a reason not to have fun, right?

Field Research tasks have been one of the few features that has stayed in Pokémon GO since its creation back in 2016. It is a quite successful one too. Trainers first met with Trainers in 2018, and since then, numerous of Field Research tasks have gone through our fast fingers. We all love to get a Field Research task, complete it and then claim the reward that it comes with. Even reach a Research Breakthrough.

Unlike a few months ago, when we had monthly rotations in the game, since June 2023, we have a seasonal rotation. It stings a little bit, but oh well, we still have some great Field Research tasks.
