November is officially underway, and there’s a lot happening in Pokemon Go this month. On top of all the November events developer Niantic has planned for the next few weeks, a new batch of Field Research tasks is now live in the game, giving you a chance to earn new rewards and encounter new kinds of Pokemon.
Unlike Special Research tasks, which are assigned by Professor Willow as part of his investigations into different Pokemon phenomena, Field Research tasks are typically distributed through PokeStops. You’ll receive one of the tasks at random when you spin the Photo Disc, and the first you complete each day will net you a stamp. Once you’ve collected seven stamps, you’ll achieve a Research Breakthrough, netting you additional rewards and an encounter with a special Pokemon.
Niantic typically offers a different Research Breakthrough reward every month, and that’s once again the case this month. Each time you achieve a Research Breakthrough in November, you’ll get a chance to catch the Fairy Pokemon Togetic. You can see November’s Field Research tasks along with their potential rewards, as compiled by The Silph Road, below.
There’s a lot more happening in November 2020 besides new Field Research tasks. Niantic has a variety of events scheduled for this month. The fan-favorite Legendary Lugia is returning to Raids for a limited time as part of a new anime tie-in event. Niantic is also hosting not one, but two separate Community Days in November, which will feature the Gen 1 Pokemon Electabuzz and Magmar, respectively.
In other Pokemon Go news, The Pokemon Company recently reconfirmed that Pokemon Go compatibility will be added to Pokemon Home before the year is up. Once the compatibility is implemented, Pokemon Go players will be able to transfer Pokemon they’ve caught in the mobile game to Pokemon Home and then into Pokemon Sword or Shield. Everyone who transfers a Pokemon over from the mobile game will also receive a special gift: Gigantamax Melmetal.
