December is here, which typically means Christmas is only around the corner. Every month in Pokemon Go, the Research Task List get updated. New tasks replace the existing Field Research Tasks, and the Research Breakthrough Rewards are changed. Below you can find out the list of December Research Tasks and Rewards in Pokemon Go.
Legendary Pokemon Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Raikou, Entei and Suicune are part of December Research Rewards. But remember it will be only a random encounter with one of these Legendary Pokemon. You have to capture the Pokemon during the encounter.
