Pokémon GO players might be wondering about the upcoming research breakthroughs coming out in September 2022. These research breakthroughs give players an opportunity to encounter a rare Pokémon.

Niantic has been updating Pokémon GO for the past six years with new ways to reward their player base for sticking around. Plenty of new Pokémon have been introduced from a wide variety of regions, and there has been a concerted effort to keep longtime players around by giving them new encounters to keep them hooked. One of Niantic's ways of doing this is through Research Breakthroughs, which give players a valuable encounter after completing daily tasks.

For the month of September 2022, Pokémon GO's Research Breakthrough Pokémon will be Medicham. This means that after completing seven daily research tasks, players will get the opportunity to encounter the Fighting and Psychic-type Pokémon with the opportunity to catch them.

The new Research Breakthrough is just one of the new additions coming to Pokémon GO in September 2022. Niantic have detailed other plans such as four new mega raids, multiple new five-star raids, a multi-day live event and much more. Pokémon GO has continued to evolve over the years by greatly expanding on the available content at launch in 2016 with Research Breakthroughs being just one of the great many content updates.
