Pokemon Go Field Research Quests - What Are They and How Do They Work?
Field Research Quests are one of the key cornerstones of the game.
If you're new to Pokemon GO or joining again after a lengthy stint away, then lets recap how these Field Research Quests work and why they're so important.
In Pokemon Go players spin PokeStops and in return, collect field research quests from Professor Willow.
These are completely random and the quest for each PokeStop changes every 24 hours.
Completing field research earns rewards for players. This could be anything from Pokeballs to random Pokemon encounters. It all depends on the research task you complete.
Naturally, Pokemon encounters are most popular, especially when the Pokemon available is especially rare.
Complete Field Research Quests and you'll also earn a stamp. Collect seven stamps and you'll unlock an additional field research breakthrough. Normally this means a chance to capture an extra special Pokemon with better rewards to boot.
And that's it. You're all set to go complete some Pokemon Go Field Research.

Pokemon Go November 2020 Research Breakthrough Reward
As per usual Niantic has already announced the latest changes coming to the Research Breakthrough Reward in November 2020.
Previously trainers had the chance to encounter Shedinja as a possible research breakthrough reward in October 2020.
Shedinja is still available right up until when the field research breakthrough changes over.
However, if you hold on for a few more hours until November 1 at 8pm GMT, you'll be able to encounter Togetic, the Happiness Pokémon.
