Pokemon Go


 

Niantic has announced that the Field Research system recently added to Pokémon Go is already getting an update. Trainers will soon have new tasks to complete, as well as a new Legendary Pokémon to capture for their hard work.

The official Pokémon Go Twitter account revealed that the new quests will go live on May 1st at 1 p.m. PT. As seen in the tweet below, the upcoming collection of mini missions will focus on Flying and Electric-type Pokémon.

According to the image in the tweet, it seems trainers will also be encountering the Legendary Pokémon Zapdos as part of the update. Since the launch of the Field Research system, which requires players to complete one small quest for seven consecutive days, the final day’s prize has been a chance to catch another Legendary bird, Moltres.

It was unclear how long the Fire/Flying-type would be the reward for completing the quests, but it seems with Zapdos’ arrival on May 1st, Niantic might have a monthly rotation plan in mind. If so, trainers might see the third Generation I Legendary bird, Articuno, sometime in June.

In addition to the new Zapdos-themed quests, another event will make May an exciting month for Pokémon Go. Recently, Niantic revealed the Pokémon starring in May’s Community Day will be the fan-favorite Pokémon Charmander. If the shiny trend of past Community Days continues next month, then trainers will have the chance to find the color-swapped version of the Fire-type creature.

Pokémon Go is available for iOS and Android.
