The new Research Breakthrough for March and April 2019 in Pokemon Go is now live.

According to The Silph Road, getting a Research Breakthrough during those two months will award you with either Ho-Oh, Lugia, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Raikou, Suicune or Entei. To get a Research Breakthrough, complete seven different Research Tasks on seven different days.

According to users on The Silph Road Subreddit, the Field Research tasks for March and April have not changed from what they were in January or February. The only notable change we can confirm so far is the appearance of a new pattern for Spinda.
