Yeah, it looks like Niantic changes the Field Research tasks and Breakthrough Box encounters every two months now. And yes I agree the quest is too hard to find.
Been working on same Spinda quest for almost a month now. I suck at great curves
I found and completed a Spinda research task on Sunday… got a non-shiny 93% IV no.8 and deemed it unworthy of posting a picture in this thread.
Hhmmm… Extrapolating my current find/completion task rate by the percentage chance of getting a shiny - I would expect to see a green one about every 45 years. ️
Found a glut of Spinda research today… so I put all my eggs in the same big shiny basket…
…dutifully completed the arduous task…
…but my reward was a load of codswallop!
I finally had someone that knew what they were doing complete my 5 great throws in a row during a Mewtwo raid today. I’ve been working on same Spinda quest for 2 months now.
I did Spinda after breakthrough switch yesterday - Groudon helped a lot - and I got form 1 - not form 3 like it was in September.
BTW: 6 Spindas I got till now are girls… including shiny one - is it just bad luck - or Spinda boys are rare?
I have 24 Spinda and 11 are male.
I have 10 female and 16 male Spinda right now, not sure about the ones I’ve transfered.
I got another form 3 Spinda today
