Pokémon Go: Research breakthrough in June 2021 - more valuable now!

By all accounts, the developers of Pokémon Go figured it was time to spice up the research breakthrough a bit. Because starting in June 2021, the Research Breakthrough will not only give you a Pokémon, but also a long-distance Raid Pass and double the amount of experience points - the latter goodie is basically supposed to be available in the upcoming Pokémon Go season.

And the Pokémon? Yawn...

Once again, there's a yawn alert in June 2021's Research Breakthrough, because you're guaranteed an encounter with Perlu when you open the reward box - and neither Perlu nor its evolutions Aalabyss or Saganabyss are known for their PvE or PvP meta qualities. But hey, at least you get the other bonuses on top. So if you're still desperate to earn XP for your level 50 advancement, cash in the research breakthroughs for a whopping 6,000 XP instead of 3,000 XP.

You can get the double XP, the long-distance Raid Pass, and the Perlu encounter from the Reward Box starting at 10:00 PM on June 1, 2021

, and these rewards will stay with you until 10:00 PM on July 1, 2021. As mentioned earlier, bonus XP from breakthroughs will also remain active throughout the next season of Pokémon Go.

You'll earn a Research Breakthrough in Pokémon Go by completing one Field Research on each of seven different days, earning seven stamps for the Research Breakthrough Chest. Until June 1, 2021 BEFORE 10:00 pm, you will still receive the "old" reward from May 2021, namely Galar Ponita, from the box.
