Adventure Week field research tasks in Pokémon Go

Adventure Week exclusive field research tasks can be collected by spinning PokéStops throughout the event. Each task can be saved in your field research collection and completed after the event ends.

It’s a good idea, however, to keep an eye out for the task which, when completed, rewards you with an encounter with the recently released Tyrunt and Amaura. It’s also recommended to get as many Tirtouga and Archen as you can, as they are two rare Pokémon.

Here are the Adventure Week field research tasks:

  • Catch 15 rock-type Pokémon reward - Omanyte or Kabuto encounter
  • Earn 3 Candies exploring with your buddy reward - Tirtouga or Archen encounter
  • Hatch 2 eggs reward - Aerodactyl encounter
  • Hatch 4 eggs reward - Tirtouga or Archen encounter
  • Spin 2 PokéStops you haven't visited before reward - Cranidos or Shieldon encounter
  • Spin 15 PokéStops or Gyms reward - Lileep or Anorith encounter
  • Spin 25 PokéStops or Gyms reward - Tyrunt or Amaura encounter
  • Walk 5km reward - Tyrunt or Amaura encounter
Archen, Amaura and Tirtouga are all rewards from Adventure Week field research tasks.

Pokémon Go Adventure Week Research Day details

As one of the Ultra Unlock benefits, Research Day will be available to everyone on Sunday, 12th June from 11am to 3pm (local time). It will feature limited research tasks that lead to Cranidos and Shieldon encounters with a higher chance of encountering a Shiny.

Tyrunt and Amaura will also be appearing more frequently in the wild, depending on the hour. Tyrunt is up first during Research Day, and will be appearing more frequently between 11am and 12pm, then back from 1pm to 2pm (local time).

Amaura will spawn more often between 12pm and 1pm, and also 2pm to 3pm (local time).

Additionally, during all four hours of Research Day, you can encounter the following Pokémon in the wild:

  • Diglett
  • Alolan Diglett
  • Geodude
  • Alolan Geodude
  • Onix
  • Rhyhorn
  • Sudowoodo
  • Aron
  • Dwebble

All of the Pokémon listed above can be Shiny, but as Tyrunt and Amaura have just been added to the game, they don't have Shiny variants yet.

The Season of Go has arrived! The Pokémon TCG Crossover event is here, which includes the release of Wimpod and Golisopod. While Go Fest 2022 may be behind us, there are still three special research quests you might be working on - Pokémon Go Fest 2022, Rhi's Arrival and A Radiant World. Meanwhile, the Great League and Great League and Great League Remix are currently running in the Go Battle League Season 11. This season has also seen the lowering of the level requirement for Candy XL and introduced the first Ultra Beast, Nihilego.
