Pokémon GO Field Reseach – January 2021

All tasks and rewards

by Kyle Hanson


There’s always new stuff to do in Pokémon GO. Whether it’s taking part in an event, or just making sure you finish up your daily tasks, your to-do list never really seems to get much shorter. And with a new month the list becomes even bigger thanks to the new round of field research tasks. You get these either randomly from your buddy or by spinning Poké Stops. Completing them gives you an immediate reward and a stamp for the 7-day research breakthrough, so it’s important stuff. Below we’ve listed out all the Pokémon GO field research tasks and rewards for January 2021.
