As if you couldn't tell from the intro, a new update's on the way to Pokemon GO which will reward Trainers in-game for completing activities and challenges.

Pokemon GO's new research feature boils down to two things: Field Research and Special Research. Professor Willow is after information on the Mythical Pokemon Mew, and both research types offer up decent rewards.

Stop by PokeStops to gather objectives to complete Field Research - this includes catching certain Pokemon or engaging in battles. While Special Research has you taking orders from Willow himself where you'll make important discoveries.

The rewards you'll reap range from handy items to encounters with specific Pokemon, and there's no limit to how many tasks you can complete per day. Bear in mind, they won't all be easy-breezy.

Each day you'll earn one Stamp for completing at least one task, then once you get to seven stamps you'll face a Research Breakthrough and get even better rewards and, maybe, encounter a Legendary Pokemon.

What do you guys think? Is this a great new feature for Pokemon GO? Let us know in the comments below.
