November has arrived and it looks like the Field Research tasks and rewards are not changing. However, the Research Breakthrough rewards will change and there is a new Spinda form, which can be shiny.
The Field Research tasks and rewards are going live today, November 1 at 1 PM PDT, and as confirmed by Niantic and Pokemon Go, new Legendary Pokemon will be available as a Research Breakthrough reward (only when collecting the 7 stamps) for the next two months.
The following Pokemon will be available as Research Breakthrough: Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Kyogre and Groudon.
Pokemon Go has Field Research tasks that can be defined as daily missions. They can be collected one at a time just by spinning a PokeStop. Usually, these missions are catching a particular Pokemon Type, engaging in battles, making great, excellent throws, hatching Eggs and many more. Completing these tasks will grant you Pokemon encounters and some of them can be shiny.
