Pokémon Go: research breakthrough in January 2021


of Susanne Braun
The creators of Pokémon Go tell you which Pokémon you can get hold of in January 2021 through a field research breakthrough, and this time it's Chansey. Both Chansey and its evolution, Heiteira, continue to be the most popular arena defenders among Pokémon Go players. So if you really want to annoy the arena attackers, don't miss any research breakthrough in January 2021!

In the research breakthrough in January 2021, hard-working Pokémon Go players can expect the powerhouse among arena defenders, namely Chansey. The developers at Niantic have announced this. Well, Chaneira is only in second place in this ranking, because Chaneira's development Heiteira is still enthroned in first place. In this respect, you have won twice if you complete field research on seven different days in January and collect a sticker for the field research breakthrough. As usual, you should hold back on opening the reward on January 1st, because you will only receive the reward encounter with Chansey on January 1st, 2021 from 10:00 p.m. Until then you can still get hold of either Lapras or Flampion. The pink chaneira, which is often found in hospitals, at least in the series, will remain in the research breakthrough until February 1, 2021 at 10:00 p.m.

Apart from his and Heiteira's weighty role as arena defender, Chaneira cuts a decent figure in coaching matches due to his high endurance value. His attacks are pretty poor in PvP, which is why you shouldn't put your cards on this mon. If it had the counterattack and haunted ball attacks, it would look very different! Since the creators of Pokémon Go always adjust the balance in the trainer fights and sometimes add new attacks for pocket monsters, you should keep your eyes open to see whether Chansey gets missed trainer fight love over time. Chaneira is also rather weak as a raid boss counterattack. But as arena defenders, as we already mentioned, Chaneira and Heiteira are the ultimate nerve duo for all attackers.
