Niantic have recently revealed the Breakthrough Reward for completing field events in Pokémon Go throughout the month of December. Field events are one of the best ways to grind and gain xp in the game. They are acquired mostly through spinning PokéStops, which provide players with objectives to perform in exchange for various rewards.
Each day that a Pokémon GO user completes a Field Research activity earns them a stamp, which leads to a Field Research breakthrough when they have collected seven of them.
The rewards for the breakthroughs tend to change each month, with a different Pokémon being on offer as a reward. This rotation will change as of 9pm GMT / 1pm PT on December 1st and will last until January 1st 2022, 9pm GMT / 1pm PT.
Pokémon GO’s December Field Research Breakthrough Reward
Currently available as a Field Research Breakthrough reward is Deino, a Dragon/Dark type Pokémon from the Unova region.
Deino is a strong Pokémon and definitely worth adding to your collection, as it has a good move set for gym battles and PVP. It costs 25 Candy to evolve into Zweilous, and then a further 100 Candy to evolve into Hydreigon.
