All of the field research quests and rewards available in Pokémon Go | November 2018

Pokemon Go Field Research Quests

Pokémon Go's research quests reward you with a bunch of items just for playing the game.

These quests can be randomly picked up from PokéStops. You can only have three quests at a time, so be sure to hold onto the ones that you're confident you can complete.

While a lot of quests will reward you with Poké Balls, items, and more, this guide focuses on those wild Pokémon encounters that sometimes appear every month. Each one is different and can reward you with a Shiny Pokémon encounter if you're lucky enough.
