Enigma week is in full swing in Pokémon Go and of course there is some event field research that can bring you dazzling pocket monsters. You can find out which Pokémon you can currently still get hold of in August 2020 through field research from our overview.
During the field research in Pokémon Go in August 2020, there will of course be the second hyperbonus of the Go Fest 2020, new event field research, which you might be lucky enough to find in line with the currently active Enigma week (until August 15, 2020, 10:00 p.m.) or get hold of other dazzling pocket monsters. If you are lucky, you can get a Shiny Sterndu or a Shiny Puppance through both tasks, if you haven't caught enough of them in the wild. Apart from that, however, as before with the field research in August, battle Pokémon are primarily offered as rewards; for example Kicklee, Quappo, Panferno, Machollo and Meditie. That being said, most of the rewards aren't all that appealing if you're not looking for a spina or larvitar. So not much has changed at this point, as you can see from the list below.
By the way, the encounter rewards from the field research will change again on August 15, 2020 at 10:00 p.m., at least those from the two event researches. Because then the one-week week in Pokémon Go starts for one week. Since then more and more unicorn Pokémon appear in the wild and Shiny Kiesling is introduced into the game, it can be expected that at least Kiesling will be a guaranteed encounter reward. Which Mon will be the other can only be guessed. It could be Waumboll, Emolga or Strawickl, because all three are new to the game. We will of course let you know as soon as the rewards have been exchanged by the people of Niantic.
