Research Updates for July & New EX Raid Boss Announced

Posted in

Trainers, it’s time! New Research Breakthroughs have been announced! Latias, Latios, Groudon, & Kyogre will be breaking out of those weekly boxes starting on July 1.

Also, a NEW Spinda form will be available from a Field Research Task, and for the first time, should you have some luck, this Spinda could be shiny! Last but certainly not least, a new EX Raid Boss was also announced, with Speed Forme Deoxys zooming its way into EX Raids.

Research Updates

Starting July 1st, you’ll find Latias, Latios, Groudon, or Kyogre inside the weekly Research Breakthrough reward. All of them can be shiny, so this is a perfect opportunity to get at least one new Shiny legendary you’re missing. We’re kinda expecting a Field Research shakeup as well, but let’s keep our expectations low in case it doesn’t happens!

July/August Research Breakthroughs
START: July 1, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT (GMT −7)
END: September 1, 2019, at 12:59 p.m. PDT (GMT −7)

Field Research Spinda sporting a new pattern will be available in Field Research, and if you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny one!

We hope the our shiny luck will be strong with you! Perfect CP values for these Pokémon is as follows:

  • Groudon – 1764 CP (at level 15)
  • Kyogre – 1764 CP (at level 15)
  • Latias – 1504 CP (at level 15)
  • Latios – 1634 CP (at level 15)
