Pokemon Go November 2020 Field Research Tasks And Rewards

A new month is here, which means new Field Research tasks to complete and rewards to earn in Pokemon Go.

Comments

We're midway through November 2020, and a lot is happening in Pokemon Go this month. On top of all the November events developer Niantic is holding over 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 Legendaries Terrakion, Cobalion, and Virizion have returned to Raids for a limited time as part of a new Pokemon Home 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 added Pokemon Go compatibility to Pokemon Home. Pokemon Go players of all levels can now transfer Pokemon they've caught in the mobile game to 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.
