Pokemon GO: May 2019 Field Research Tasks and Rewards Revealed

pokemon go may field research

New Field Research tasks and rewards have arrived in Niantic's popular mobile ARG, Pokemon GO, for the month of May 2019. Joining these new research tasks is also a new set of Pokemon GO Field Research Breakthroughs, which shook things up quite a bit from previous months. These changes have also been joined by a plethora of others, shaking up the established meta of the game.

Chief among those changes is the addition of Azelf, Mesprit, and Uxie into the wilds of the mobile ARG. Between these new roaming legendaries, new research tasks, and new breakthroughs, there's plenty to keep the player's attention, as more Pokemon GO events are likely to drop later this month as well alongside the scheduled Torchic Community Day.

Between events, however, research is a huge component of Pokemon GO. And for those who want to know the rewards of the Field Research tasks they pick up, we've compiled this list composed of tasks that feature Pokemon encounter rewards. It's also worth highlighting that these could change in the coming days, so we'll be sure to update the list if so. Here is every Pokemon GO May 2019 Field Research Task and Reward:
