Pokemon Go Research Breakthrough April Edition – All Tasks and Rewards

A brand-new Research Breakthrough has just been revealed for Pokemon Go! This time around, it seems that we’re going to return to Unova and catch a Water/Ghost-type ‘mon.

The Research Breakthrough aired for the first time back in 2018, featuring some cool weekly challenges and an encounter with a Pokemon. We have all the details about the April 2021 edition, and by the looks of it, we sure have a lot of stuff to do, especially when a male Frillish it’s in the cards.

Here is what you need to know.
