Field Research menu

Field Research (Japanese: フィールドリサーチ Field Research) are small goals that can be completed in Pokémon GO, which were initially introduced by Professor Willow to aid him in his discoveries. Research tasks involve a range of objectives, such as catching Pokémon or battling in Gyms, and reward players with items, Pokémon encounters, or Stardust.

Pokémon obtained from Field Research tasks will have a minimum of 10 IVs in each stat and an initial Power Up level of 15. Weather bonuses are not applied for these types of encounters. Field Research Pokémon are guaranteed to never flee. If the player runs from the encounter, the Pokémon will be saved into a queue that can be later accessed by a "Claim Reward!" button above the Field Research tasks.

Tasks can be obtained by spinning PokéStops, and a maximum of three active tasks can be held at one time. A player can choose to discard a task to free up space for another. A single PokéStop will provide the same task for all players for a single day, and the task cannot be obtained again if the task from that PokéStop was completed for the day. A PokéStop that has had its task completed will have a blue Research completion icon on the top-right of the screen when viewed.

Completing a Research task will earn the player a Stamp once per day. Once the player has earned seven Stamps, the player will receive a Research Breakthrough, which includes various rewards and an encounter with a special Pokémon.

Separate Field Research tasks have been temporarily available on special events, including during Community Days.
