Mysterious Cassette Icon Appears in Pokemon Go, What’s Its Purpose?

Trainers, at the beginning of March, the well-known miners revealed new assets related to a new type of quest called Cassette, but without any specific information. Pokemon Go players are reporting that they got this icon while playing, but no one knows what it’s for.

The Pokemod Group found new assets related to a new type of quest called Cassette but did not share anything more. We hoped that Niantic and Pokemon Go would reveal more details about the Cassette and what it does, but there is still no explanation.

This icon is marked as a “Research Cassette Card” in the files, but that doesn’t tell us anything specific.

According to reports from the Pokemon Go community, the Cassette icon appeared after they claimed a Special Research, or when claiming the first step of a specific Special Research.

We’re not sure what it’s for, but according to speculations, this could be a storage device for Research quests or stacked encounters.

Until we get an official announcement, we can only guess what this could mean. Hopefully, Niantic and Pokemon Go will come out with more details about Cassette soon.

We can only wait and speculate. What do you think? What’s the Cassette all about?
