The A Valorous Hero event in Pokemon GO has introduced some new Field Research Tasks to collect and complete, and the rewards will be very helpful if you plan on battling in Raids.

|Field Research Task||Reward|
|Battle 3 Team GO Rocket Grunts||5 Revives|
|Battle in a Gym||3 Hyper Potions|
|Power up a Pokemon||300 Stardust|
|Power up Pokemon 5 times||1000 Stardust|
|Power up Pokemon 10 Times||Ponyta Encounter|
In addition to getting a Ponyta from one of the new Field Research Tasks, players can currently get an exclusive costumed Ponyta from the new Special Research Story. Find out how to complete the Pokemon GO A Valorous Hero Special Research if you want this exclusive Fire-type ‘Mon!
Also, if you are very lucky, there is a chance of catching the ultra-rare shiny version of Ponyta. Instead of the standard orange flames, the shiny version has a bright blue flaming mane and tail!
In addition to the new Field Research, the A Valorous Hero event has also added a brand new Mega Pokemon. Find out how to beat Mega Pinsir in Pokemon GO Raids so you can get your own Mega Pinsir!
