Jump-Start Research has returned!
It seems like Niantic has decided to bring back the Jump-Start Research feature for all the Pokémon Go players. It was originally intended to discharge as a gift to the fans so that they can commemorate the third anniversary of the game’s release. You can say that it’s a part of the Special Research missions. Interested in knowing its benefits? It definitely revitalizes the gaming experience of many established Poké junkies in the game. Additionally, it also serves as a perfect bait for attracting all the new players! Well, we can’t put the newbies out of the frame, right?
Jump-Start bestows some big-sized rewards to all the players who manage to complete it. But in order to earn these rewards, you have to finish off some tasks provided by the makers. It seems like a perfect chance to level ourselves up in the game, isn’t it?
Go through the list of Jump-Start Research tasks which we have mentioned below! But remember, Niantic hasn’t released any official date regarding the termination of this feature.
