Pokémon Go’s Hoenn Celebration event is about to begin, and it is expanding what players can expect from smaller event’s Field Reasearch.

Along with the usual increased spawns and updated Raid and Egg pools that come with every Pokémon Go event, the Hoenn event is giving players a chance to grab some Legendary rewards. 

Just like the previous regional events, one reward is extra encounters with some of the featured Hoenn Pokémon, that will help players finish the Hoenn Collection Challenge too. Some Today’s View Research will incentivize players to complete Raids to capture both Groudon and Kyogre in order to encounter a Rayquaza with the special move Hurricane in its arsenal. 

If you plan to even somewhat participate in the third generation celebration, here are all the Field Research tasks you can complete, along with their rewards.
