Evolution Event research task rewards explained in Pokémon Go

What evolution inspired rewards are available for this week's new task set?

Evolution Event research tasks are a time limited quest available in Pokémon Go to help you evolve those final couple of Pokémon before the end of the year.

You can find these tasks by spinning PokéStops, as they have replaced some of the current roster of the monthly Research Tasks, which are currently available. Don't be surprised if it takes you a complete of spins to find them!

Evolution Event research task rewards explained in Pokémon Go

Below you'll find the Evolution Event research tasks, and rewards, that will be live in Pokémon Go from 5th December to 12th December 2019, starting and finishing at 9pm (GMT) / 1pm (PST) on those days.

Although you can only find these research tasks during this event period, you can complete and claim rewards for the tasks if you hold onto them once the event ends.

Thank you to SilphScience from reddit for the help clarifying these tasks and rewards.


The Season of Heritage continues in 2022, along with the XP Challenge and a refreshed Go Battle League. The Power Plant event is currently running, allowing you to catch a Helioptile and evolve it into a Heliolisk using a Sun Stone. Ongoing are Arlo, Cliff, Sierra counters and Giovanni counters. The major updates in the previous year include a level cap increase, the introduction of XL Candy, boosts to some XP sources and the addition of Platinum Medals.

What else do you need to know about Evolution Event research task rewards?

Like last week's Friend Fest research, there are multiple Evolution Event research tasks for you to complete, with some having a variety of rewards.

The real draw of this event are the item rewards, especially in the case of the Sinnoh Stone and Unova Stone. Usually you can only get these special stones by getting lucky from completing a research breakthrough or winning a Pokémon battle against another player.

If you're in desperate need of either stone, then it's a good idea to research out either of their research tasks, so you can gain your chosen stone and finally evolve that Pokémon!
