‘Field Research’ consists of daily missions or tasks that players have to complete. Once completed, players will earn rewards. This can include battling in a gym, catching a certain type of Pokémon or hatching eggs. Over the course of a month, players will come across these quests and sometimes, the rewards can also include a chance to catch rare Pokémon. If players finish daily quests for seven days, they are granted seven stamps, simultaneously also completing a ‘Research Breakthrough’. On completing it, players stand a chance of catching legendary Pokémon.

Between 1 March and 1 May, the legendary Pokémon list included Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Regirock, Regice and Registeel.

In the upcoming update between 1 May and 1 July, the list has dropped the majority of them and now it includes Lugia, Ho-Oh and new Pokémon including Latios and Latias.
