Pokémon Go: August Field Research

In Pokémon Go Field Research Tasks are basic missions that the players can complete in exchange for Pokémon encounters, Stardust and items.

How to get a Field Research Task? To get it you have to spin Pokéstops and you will get one to complete. Every stop gives one task a day and players can hold up to three tasks in one time. When the player completes one task, he will get a stamp that has a date marked. When completing seven Field Research Tasks and getting seven stamps from seven different days, players get the chance to encounter a special Pokémon. Also, they get items, Stardust and XP as a reward. The players can turn in more than one task a day but they will get only one stamp for the very first task that they completed that day. Remember that after you have completed a task you don’t have to turn it in immediately, you can turn it in some other day to get the stamp for the day you want.

As of July 1st, the list of special Pokémon has changed, now Kyogre, Ground, Latios, Latias are also included and they all have a chance to appear Shiny of course. IT is a good idea to catch as many Kygre and Groudon as possible, because they are known as the best water and ground type attackers.

Remember that completing individual Pokémon Go Field Research tasks is also useful. You can get Rare spawns like Chansey or Aerodactyl as rewards, or some valuable loot like Golden Razzberries or Rare Candy.
