Spring into Spring field research tasks in Pokémon Go

Spinning PokéStops throughout the Spring into Spring event in Pokémon Go may lead to you collecting an event-exclusive field research task.

While these tasks can be saved and completed after the event ends, we recommend completing some during the event itself. This is because some of the Pokémon you’ll receive as rewards for completing the field research tasks are required for the Spring into Spring Collection Challenge.

Here are the Spring into Spring field research tasks:

  • Hatch an egg reward - Flower Crown Pikachu or Flower Crown Eevee encounter
  • Hatch 2 eggs reward - Flower Crown Buneary encounter
  • Hatch 4 eggs reward - Flower Crown Chansey encounter
