September is here, and a lot is happening in Pokemon Go this month. On top of all the September events taking place over the next few weeks, new Field Research tasks are now live in the game, along with a new Research Breakthrough encounter: Alolan Raichu.

Each time you achieve a Research Breakthrough in September 2020, you’ll get a chance to catch Alolan Raichu. There’s a possibility this Raichu could be Shiny as well, giving you another incentive to complete as much Field Research as you can this month.

While you’ll receive one bonus Field Research task in the game each day, Field Research is typically obtained from PokeStops. There’s no limit to how many tasks you can do daily, but you’ll receive one stamp for the first task that you complete each day. Once you amass seven stamps, you’ll achieve a Research Breakthrough, leading to the aforementioned encounter with Alolan Raichu.

The Field Research tasks you receive will be randomly drawn from a larger pool, which is refreshed at the start of every month. You can see September’s Field Research tasks as well as their potential rewards, as compiled by The Silph Road, below.

Beyond the new Field Research tasks, there are many events to look forward to in Pokemon Go this month, including Mega September–three weeks of activities that revolve around Mega Evolutions. A handful of Legendary Pokemon are also returning to Raids this month, while September’s Community Day takes place on September 20 and features Porygon.
