Pokémon GO - Field Research

As part of the monthly rotation of Field Research, new Field Research tasks will begin to appear in Pokémon GO. With this, there is a focus on previous popular research, as well as the return of Lugia & Ho-Oh who have now rotated in as the Research Breakthrough reward in addition to Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Raikou, Entei & Suicune. We're currently cataloguing all Research that we find and get reports of and the section will be continually added to over the next day
Edit @ 21:19: There seems to be a bug with the research akin to the shift on November 1st 2018. At present, only Moltres is appearing in Breakthroughs and this explains the Spinda Form #8. We're currently uncertain what the situation is but will post as more information comes
Edit @ 21:30: The error seems to have been resolved and new research as well now appearing. We'll provide full details as they come
Edit @ 21:34: Spinda Form #5 is available with this new Field Research shift
