How do I get a research breakthrough in Pokemon Go?
A Research breakthrough is a name given to what happens when you complete a set of 7 stamps earned through research tasks. You can earn one such stamp a day, and completing a single research task on that day will earn you the stamp.
When you reach 7 total stamps, you will have the breakthrough event occur. This will usually then take priority over other research rewards and begin an encounter with the featured breakthrough Pokemon for the month; in August that’ll mean Galarian Stunfisk.
