New Pokémon GO Research feature announced
Niantic has announced a Research feature to be available later this week. The research is connected to Mew and involves both Field and Special Research.
Field Research tasks involve interacting with nearby PokéStops, which give objectives that include discovering and catching certain Pokémon or engaging with battles to name but a few.
Special Research is requested by Professor Willow, and players complete a journey to make "important discoveries".
Both types of research offer rewards, including a variety of items and even encounters with certain Pokémon. There is no limit on how many research tasks are undertaken every day. The tasks have different levels of difficulty, and the more challenging a research task is, the greater the reward is.
One stamp per day can be earned by completing at least one Field Research task. When a player accumulates seven stamps, they can achieve a Research Breakthrough to receive better rewards and the potential to encounter a Legendary Pokémon.
