Here’s how you can complete the A Route to New Friendships Special Research in Pokemon GO!

Pokemon GO has added a brand new NPC, Mateo, to the game. He is a helpful explorer who lets you exchange Gifts after traveling along a Route.

So that everyone can learn how Mateo works, the A Route to New Friendships Special Research has been dropped. This focuses on exploring using the Routes feature and trading with Mateo, so you can get the hang of this new feature.

Here are all of the tasks and rewards in the A Route to New Friendships Special Research in Pokemon GO!
