Pokemon GO November Field Research
Niantic has just announced some key info on the Pokemon GO November Field Research. We know what the focus will be, and also what the Research Breakthrough is. We’ve gathered all of the key info below.
Pokemon GO November Research Focuses on Bug-Type Pokemon
Every month, the Field Research in Pokemon GO shines a spotlight on a different type of pokemon. For November, players will be seeing a ton of creepy crawlies showing up in their neighbourhood. Bug-Type pokemon are the stars of Pokemon GO November Field Research, and as such, there will be increased spawn rates. It’s worth noting that with the recent addition of gen 4 pokemon to Pokemon GO, you’ll likely be seeing Bug-Types like Kricketot and its evolution Kricketune will be appearing more frequently.
Pokemon GO Shedinja Research Breakthrough
The Research Breakthrough for the Pokemon GO November Field Research is Shedinja. Shedinja is a Ghost/Bug Type Pokemon, who is a kind of special evolution of Nincada. Its unique Ghost/Bug Type stats make it an interesting one, and make it perfect post-Halloween choice. To get a Shedinja for yourself, you need to complete 7 research Tasks. Once you’ve done so, head into the Research menu, and tap on the package icon. This will take you to a Shedinja battle, where you can catch t for yourself.
