Niantic has just released an announcement on the Field Research Breakthrough rewards. After finishing the tasks for reaching the Breakthrough, players will be rewarded with a special encounter with a legendary Pokémon.
In the past two months, Pokemon Go players encountered three legendary birds – Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos, and three legendary dogs – Entei, Raikou, and Suicune.
Now this month, players will encounter the legendary titans. The legendary birds will be removed from the pool and be replaced by the titans, so March and April Research Breakthroughs should feature Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-oh, Regice, Registeel, and Regirock.
To get a special breakthrough, you must complete daily tasks like catching Pokemon, using berries, or performing a great throw. Each successful task will reward you with a stamp, and after seven stamps, you are rewarded with a research breakthrough, giving you the chance of encountering a legendary Pokemon.
Players that cannot play in raids prefer to complete the tasks for the Field Research Breakthrough for the rewards which allow them to get legendary Pokemon every month. We hope the Field Research Breakthrough becomes a regular event like the monthly Community Day.
March Community Day News
Talking about Community Day, this month it will take place on 23 March. For three hours, players get the chance to catch Treecko or the Shiny version and get the 1/4 egg hatch distance bonus, double XP and stardust, as well as the 3-hour long bonus lure.
This time, Niantic set the Community Day schedule at the 3pm-6pm local time – so, no matter your time zone, the event will be during this period.
So gather as many Poke Balls, Great Balls, and Ultra Balls to catch this awesome ‘Mon, and keep some Razz Berries if you want to catch the Shiny Treecko. Also, since you’ll get to walk for the three-hour long event, make sure you free all incubators to hatch as many eggs as possible during your journeys from Pokestop to Pokestop.
