Pokemon Go January 2022 Field Research Tasks And Rewards List

A new month brings plenty of new tasks to complete while you catch 'em all.

Comments

Niantic has kicked off 2022 in Pokemon Go with the Mountains of Power event, but along with that comes a fresh new set of Field Research tasks to complete.

To achieve a Research Breakthrough, you'll need to collect stamps by completing the Field Research tasks. Only the first task of each day gets you a stamp, however, so you'll need to complete one per day for a week in order to unlock the Research Breakthrough rewards and encounter–this month's encounter being the stone snake Onix.

To receive new Field Research tasks, you'll need to venture out to your local PokeStop. One task from the pool below will be randomly selected for you when you spin the Photo Disc for supplies, with each completion netting you rewards along with the aforementioned stamps. The list of available tasks and corresponding rewards is below.

January 2022 is bringing a lot of new and exciting events to Pokemon Go, starting with the Rock- and Steel-type themed Mountains of Power. More events are planned throughout the month of January as part of the Season of Heritage arc, including new Raid Hours featuring legendary Pokemon and Mega Raids featuring the Pokemon Go debut of Mega Aerodactyl.
