A new Research feature will be added to Pokemon GO on March 30 and it may all have something to do with Mew.
There are two types of Research players could participate in to help Professor Willow. The first is Field Research, a type of task that can be completed by spinning PokeStops. Trainers will then receive objectives to complete, such as catching or battling a certain Pokemon.
The other type is Special Research, story-driven research presented by Professor Willow himself. It’s said that by completing Pokemon research, it may lead to the discovery of the Mythical Pokemon Mew, so time to get cracking!
There’s no limit to the number of research tasks that can be completed each day, and they grant rewards such as useful items. The more difficult the task, the greater the reward, so hard-working Trainers will benefit quite a bit. When Trainers complete Field Research tasks, they’ll earn a special stamp. Trainers can do as many research tasks as they want, but they can earn only one stamp per day. Collecting seven stamps achieves a Research Breakthrough, leading to even more rewards (and maybe even an encounter with a Legendary Pokémon)!
With the new research objectives in Pokémon GO, Trainers will have more reasons than ever to get outside to discover, battle, and catch Pokémon. Have fun with Pokémon research—and good luck to all in discovering the mystery behind Mew!
