Assuming they’ve have been getting at least one stamp per day, April 12 marks the second time Pokemon GO players can complete a Field Research breakthrough. Last week’s Field Research breakthrough reward gave players a chance at catching Moltres along with some other goodies, and it looks like this week’s rewards will offer much of the same.
Thanks to players manipulating the time zones on their phones, we now know the Field Research breakthrough rewards for Pokemon GO on April 12. As it turns out, Moltres is once again the legendary Pokemon players will encounter after completing the breakthrough, and while that may be disappointing for those looking to complete their Pokedex, at least it gives them the chance to power up the legendary bird with candy.
Plus, Moltres isn’t the only reward for completing the April 12 Field Research breakthrough. The other rewards appear to be 2,000 stardust, three rare candies, 3,000 XP, five Ultra Balls, and five Pinap Berries. So even the players that aren’t interested in Moltres any longer will still be rewarded well for their efforts this past week.
As for what Pokemon GO may have in store for next week’s Field Research breakthrough, it’s tough to say. It’s possible that Moltres will remain the Pokemon that players encounter for a few more weeks, and then it will eventually be rotated out in favor of a different legendary Pokemon. It’s also possible that these encounters will star other rare Pokemon besides just legendaries, which could help Niantic keep things fresh.
Whatever the case may be, Pokemon GO fans shouldn’t expect the Field Research breakthrough rewards to stay the same every week. So anyone looking to add Moltres to their collection or power up any that they already have should make sure they are getting their stamp every day.
Once Moltres has run its course, it’s likely that the other generation 1 legendary birds, Articuno and Zapdos, will be up next. And if the pattern holds after that, fans should also be able to expect the second generation legendary beasts to become Field Research breakthrough rewards at some point in the future as well.
Pokemon GO is available now for iOS and Android mobile devices.
