Field Research event tasks

There were several Field Research tasks exclusively for the duration of the event.

Defeat a Team GO Rocket Grunt

Collection Challenge

To complete the Collection Challenge, Trainer must catch all of the following Pokémon during the event.

Turtwig
Chimchar
Piplup
Cranidos
Shieldon
Combee
Buizel
Stunky
Icon Shadow Pokémon.png
Snover
Icon Shadow Pokémon.png

Controversy

Many players had expressed the difficulties of finding Shadow Pokémon required to complete the Collection Challenge, especially Snover.[4] Team GO Rocket Grunts appeared randomly and Ice-type Grunts were relatively rare. Even if one encountered an Ice-type Grunt, the chance of catching Cloyster was higher than Snover.
