Trivia

  • As with Pokémon encountered as a reward for completing a Field Research task, Pokémon encountered for completing a Research Breakthrough will be level 15.
  • The Pokémon encountered in Research Breakthrough is not set when you start the week. If you hold off obtaining the last stamp and Breakthrough, it is possible to wait till the encounter Pokémon changes to immediately obtain the new Pokémon available.
