Every month, various field research tasks players receive from visiting PokéStops and Gyms in Pokémon Go. These tasks give players a simple activity to do in the game, and upon completing that activity, it provides them a reward. These typically provide trainers with a chance to encounter a specific Pokémon. If you’re on the hunt for a certain one, you’ll be able to find one without having to find them in a particular region.

March 2021 has several Pokémon players can capture, and many of them feature several from the Kanto Region, and there are a handful of Dragon-types. There are not as many as there were in February, but nearly all of them have their shiny versions activated, so if any players want to try earning a new shiny Pokémon, these field research tasks are an excellent way to try and farm them.
