'Pokémon Go' July Research Tasks: Each Mission and Reward Pokémon

With the start of a new month, Niantic has shifted the research tasks that players can complete in Pokémon Go.

Gone is Trapinch from the Research Breakthrough, and gone are the older Pokémon that were rewards for completing certain tasks. In July, trainers can stock up on a variety of Rock-type Pokémon, including the Fossil Pokémon.

Larvitar, the first form of the pseudo legendary Tyranitar, will be the Pokémon rewarded for a Research Breakthrough. Of course, the Research Breakthrough happens when trainers do seven days of completing at least one task each day.

Pokémon Go players can obtain one research task from a PokeStop. Trainers can only hold up to three tasks at one time, so if a player spins the PokeStop and they have room they can gain one of these new missions.

The July research tasks will be present in PokeStops all month and ending around 4 p.m. EDT on August 1.

Tyranitar is a powerful Pokémon to use in Raids, especially against some of the Flying-type Legendaries, but also in the Go Battle League. Other Rock-type Pokémon that do well in the PVP game mode are Steelix and Probopass.

Onix and Nosepass, their pre-evolutions, are rewards for some of the tasks for this month, so completing them will help trainers add these powerful Pokémon to their team.

Here's a rundown of all the research tasks to complete in Pokémon Go with their rewards for completing them:
