Pokemon GO Research Tasks: September 2019

Niantic

A new set of Research Tasks and a unique Research Breakthrough has gone live in Pokemon GO.

The Research Breakthrough is unique in that it’s not a Legendary Pokemon included in the bonus like it usually is. Instead, you’ll get an encounter with an Eevee wearing a flower crown, according to a blog post from Niantic. You also have a slight chance of getting a Shiny Eevee with a flower crown. Flower crown Eevee will be encountered in Research Breakthroughs from now until November 1, 2019 at 1 p.m. PDT, according to Niantic.

Note: A user on The Silph Road Subreddit claimed to have received an Eevee with a flower crown after completing a Research Task to evolve a Pokemon. This has yet to be verified.

To get a Research Breakthrough, you need to complete seven different Research Tasks on seven different days (it doesn’t have to be in a row).

In addition, the variant of Spinda has changed, according to users on The Silph Road Subreddit. This time, it’s variant number three.

Users on The Silph Road and its Subreddit have already begun to chronicle all of the Research Tasks and their rewards. Here’s the current list of all the Research Tasks for September 2019. The list will continue to be updated as Research Tasks change.
