Pokemon Go A Professor’s Work Is Never Done Research

For the most part players will be using their rocket radars to find yourself some bosses or grunts of the evil organization to battling them.

Make sure you have completed the “A Troubling Situation” researches or missions to access this, as A professor’s work is never finished is a direct sequel to it.

After completing the tasks you get to face off against Giovanni. The rewards change from Month to Month, and to get each one you can’t have the previous month’s research active and you would have to first finish the old one to get access to the rewards of the latest research.
