Pokemon Go March Field Research tasks, rewards and breakthrough

Pokemon GO has outlined some but not all of the big events coming to the game in March.

Of course, there could be some changes to March proceedings, specific events. We've already seen that some Pokemon GO events have been called off in Japan due to the ongoing tension and caution towards the coronavirus.

However, those looking to get outside to play the game should still be able to enjoy themselves without the need for any huge events, because there are some changes to the Field Research Quests and rewards.

If you're new to the game, or joining the game again after a few months away, then let us quickly explain how the field Research quests work.

In Pokemon Go players spin PokeStops and collect field research quests from Professor Willow. These are completely random and the quest for each PokeStop changes every 24 hours.

Should players take the time to complete field research they'll earn rewards in return. This could be anything from Pokeballs to random Pokemon encounters. It all depends on the research task you complete.

Naturally, Pokemon encounters are most popular, especially when the Pokemon is especially rare. Your odds of catching a shiny are increased too.

Complete seven Field Research Quests and you then unlock a field research breakthrough, which means you'll have the chance to capture an extra special Pokemon that otherwise can't be caught in the wild.

With the start of a new month, it's all change once again, so keep reading for everything you need to know about the Pokemon Go March field research quests and rewards!

When do Pokemon Go March field research quests start?

The Pokemon Go field research quests and rewards for March 2020 will commence later tonight and we should have confirmation of the quests tonight at 9pm GMT.

The existing field research quests are still active until March 1, 2020, at 1 p.m. PST (GMT −8).

For the full list of available Field Research Quests available in February, keep reading, and check back later tonight for confirmation of the new March Field Research Quests.

What is the Pokemon Go March Research Breakthrough Reward?

As per usual, Niantic has announced the latest big change to the Research Breakthrough rewards coming into force for March 2020.

Previously trainers had the chance to encounter Woobat as a possible research breakthrough reward in February.

Woobat is still available right up until later tonight when the field research changes over.

However, if you hold onto your research breakthrough reward until later tonight, you'll be able to encounter

However, if you hold onto your Research Breakthrough Reward until later tonight you'll be able to encounter Ferroseed , instead.

This information was confirmed on the most recent Pokemon Go blog, who told fans of the game:

"From Sunday, March 1, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PST (GMT −8) to Wednesday, April 1, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7), the Thorn Seed Pokémon, Ferroseed, will be available as a Research Breakthrough encounter, and it’ll come with bonus Stardust!

"Ferroseed’s evolved form, Ferrothorn, can be a powerful contender in Trainer Battles, including those in the GO Battle League!"

Hopefully, players will be able to earn enough candy to evolve themselves a Ferrothorn in no time flat.
