Encounters (Under Construction/Beta)

Last Updated: 2019-07-01

Sometimes the Reward for a Research Task, is an "Encounter".
However, the Research Task doesn't tell you which Pokémon you will Encounter when you complete it.
This page should help you to match up which Pokémon may be the Encounter for which Research Tasks.

 Field Research

When spinning a PokéStop you get a "Field Research" that may have and Encounter as a Reward. And the Pokémon encountered for a specific Field Research Task may change from time to time.
This section allows you to see what Tasks match up with which Encounters, and if you click on the Pokémon, it will show you a CP to IV reference chart.
