'Pokémon Go' Research Task Update: Hoenn Celebration Quests Makes it Easier to Catch Trapinch

The Pokémon Go Hoenn Celebration has begun, and while Gen 3 Pokémon are appearing more often than ever new Research Tasks will help trainers get powerful and rare Hoenn Pokémon.

Niantic updates the Research Tasks for Pokémon Go at the start of every month or, in the case of the Hoenn Celebration, during major events. Currently only a few Hoenn Celebration Tasks have been found, but one of the reward encounters includes the rare Pokémon, Trapinch.
