Pokemon Go: Full February 2020 Field Research Tasks

New month, new Field Research.

Comments

February is almost over, but there's still some time left to complete this month's Field Research tasks in Pokemon Go. As usual, February's Field Research tasks can be obtained by spinning the Photo Disc at PokeStops. Completing these new tasks will earn you rewards, which can range from helpful items like Berries and Poke Balls to encounters with certain Pokemon.

On top of those rewards, the first Field Research task you complete each day will also net you a stamp. Each time you collect seven stamps, you'll achieve a Research Breakthrough, which will earn you additional rewards, including an encounter with a special Pokemon. Last month's Research Breakthrough reward was Lapras that knew Ice Beam or Ice Shard, but this month, you'll have a chance to catch a new Gen 5 Pokemon instead: Woobat.

The Field Research tasks you obtain will be randomly drawn from a larger pool, so there's no telling which ones you'll receive. Up to three Field Research tasks can be active at a time, but you can discard any that may be giving you trouble and receive a different task from another PokeStop. You can see the updated list of Pokemon Go's Field Research tasks--along with the possible rewards they dole out--below, courtesy of The Silph Road.

February is shaping up to be a particularly busy month for Pokemon Go. Niantic has a ton of events lined up for this month, including a Sinnoh celebration that will make it easier to find Gen 4 Pokemon and a new Team Rocket Special Research quest that will lead to a chance to catch Shadow Raikou. This month will also bring a few more Gen 5 Pokemon to the game, including the Legendary Tornadus.

February's Community Day, meanwhile, is set for Saturday, February 22. This time around, Niantic let players vote on what the featured Pokemon is. The results of the voting will be announced on February 3. [Update: You can view the Pokemon Community Day winner now.]
