The Pokemon Go craze has definitely died out since the game's release, with several promised features still not released, but Niantic is hoping to draw in former players with the game's new Field Research quests. The new feature is set to add a narrative element to the multiplayer-driven experience and will task players with aiding Professor Willow on his search for the mythical Pokemon Mew. The quests will be available to players around the world and will offer quest-specific rewards.
The narrative elements of Pokemon Go will be split up into Field Research quests and Special Research quests. The former type can easily be triggered by visiting Pokestops, and will have trainers completing various raids, engaging in gym battles or catching certain types of Pokemon. Special Research missions will take longer and will have trainers completing multiple tasks in a row after being given a mission directly from Professor Willow.
