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.

Evolution Event research task list:

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

New to the game is a long overdue Mega Evolution update, which has arrived alongside the A Mega Moment research. May 2022 in Pokémon Go includes the Water Festival, which celebrates the release of Dewpider and Araquanid. Tapu Fini has also been released alongside A Poni Adventure - the last Alola region-themed special research quest. Currently both the Ultra League and Element Cup are running in the Go Battle League. Elsewhere, we've recently seen the release of more Gen 7 Pokémon as part of the Season of Alola. The first details surrounding Go Fest 2022 have also been announced, including the event date.

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!
