What is the July Research Breakthrough Pokémon in Pokémon Go?

July has officially arrived with a new Research Breakthrough Pokémon.

A new month means a new research breakthrough Pokémon will be available in Pokémon Go. This Pokémon will be a reward for every player after successfully completing seven days of research tasks and earning a stamp every week. For June, it was Trapinch, the Ant Pit Pokémon. For July 2020, it will be Larvitar, the Rock Skin Pokémon, which is an exciting choice for many trainers eager to get their hands on the Pokémon’s exceptionally powerful final evolution, Tyranitar.

You need to earn a research stamp every day and obtain a seven-day streak to receive Larvitar as your guaranteed reward. All players can check their research progress each day by clicking the binoculars icon on the lower left-hand of their screen to see if they have a stamp with each day’s date. You can view your available research tasks by looking below these stamps. To earn more, visit any PokéStops in your area. You can only receive one stamp a day.

Larvitar eventually evolves into Tyranitar, a Rock and Dark-type Pokémon. It has a max CP of 3,834, an attack of 251, a defense of 207, and stamina of 225. Of the previous Research Breakthrough Pokémon, Larvitar is an exceptional choice, and for those who have been desperately attempting to earn more Larvitar candy now have the opportunity to receive plenty throughout July. The Larvitar available for the Research Breakthrough tasks will have a chance to be a shiny variant.
