from Susanne Braun
A new event is active in Pokémon Go, the Mega Buddy Challenge, but not much has happened in the field research and its reward encounters. A glimmer of hope, at least: You have the chance to get hold of Shiny Dodu through event research. You can find out from us which pocket monsters are currently being researched in Pokémon Go in September 2020.

Towards the end of September 2020, there is not much going on in the Encounter Rewards via Research in Pokémon Go. Some players in the pocket monster collecting game may see this as a curse or a blessing. After all: If you can get hold of specific event research on the recently launched mega buddy challenge, then you have the chance of a Shiny Dodu when completing it, because this dazzling has just been added to the game. Since it can be assumed that you have a 1 in 450 to 500 chance of Dodus caught in the wild that it turns out to be Shiny, you should not miss the event research.

Of course, you also have the opportunity to bag a few mega energies via the other event research, but only for Bibor, Charizard, Bisaflor and Turtok. Tauboss was not given its own field research for mega-energies. But in view of the fact that you collect this mega-evolution more for the look and the mega-Pokédex, instead of for its counter-attack options, that might not matter. Since the flight type in Pokémon Go is not particularly strong anyway and Pigeon Boss' other type Normal has no bonuses on attacks, Mega Pigeon Boss is relatively unattractive as a counterattack in the metagame. It will be more interesting to bet on Mega-Hundemon or even Mega-Gengar (in October).

But … we digress. Below is the handy overview of the research in September 2020 in Pokémon Go, which will bring you encounter rewards. Of course, it can be assumed that the picture will change again at the end of the mega buddy challenge – but not seriously.
