There is a new selection of Field Research Tasks for Pokemon GO players to pick up by spinning PokeStops during the 2023 Lunar New Year event, from January 19 – 23.
Completing these Tasks will reward players with Pokemon encounters, including Fennekin, Darumaka, Buneray, Bunnelby, and Fire-type starter Pokemon.
There are only four different Tasks, but all of them can reward with one of a selection of different Pokemon. For instance, the ‘open 3 Gifts’ Field Research could give you an encounter with any of the Fire-type starters, while the Catch 25 Pokemon Task will give you an encounter with either of the two versions of Darumaka.
