Tell us what do you think about new upcoming quest system! Personally, if tasks are going to make logical sense, i will finally get something awesome!


#2


Mythical Pokemon will be part of the rewards of completing quests. Are you getting on the hype train?

Edit: “Trainers, this is not a drill! Pokémon GO will soon (March 30!) get Mythical Pokémon via the new Quest (field research task) system, which enable trainers to help Professor Willow find Mythical Pokémon!”


#3

Edit: removed my orignal post as i’ve missed the big news on quests just posted on the gohub main page.

New post: I’m hyped. This is what PoGo needs atm: new content to keep us busy! And right now this information looks goooooood!

MEW IS INCOMING! :grin:

If they don’t lie


#5

and they better make task for him make sense


#6

Very very excited for this, makes it more like a main series game which I love!


#7

A possible idea that I thought would be good for quests:

It will be possible to encounter legendaries through the quest system, so why not make it only legendaries that have already been in raids? That way it gives people a chance to catch up if they missed previous legendaries, but also allows them to release new ones through the raid system in the way we have it now.


#8

Since when do the main games have research?


#9

Research… I remember thta we had to find things in the maps which where not possible to see if you don’t made a step on the field.
So, in a remote way it was research.


#10

I’m not saying it had research, I’m saying the fact that we have goals and specific tasks to do makes it feel like a main series game.


#11

It would be also helpful to those, who can’t do raids, like me


#12

No idea about the main games, but in the original animated series, there were several Pokemon Docters, Nurses, Researchers and Professors. So, in that way, it has for a long time been part of the world. It just wasn’t really game-i-fied yet.


#13

Exactly, even though I’ve managed to find a decent raid group, I missed most of the legendaries due to not being able to raid. It’s a great opportunity for everyone to catch up on Pokemon they missed.


#14

Dowsing Machine?


#15

As long as they make it possible to do an infinite amount of quests in an infinite amount of time, I’m hyped.


#16

Yeah, I mean this, but don’t remembered the name. It’s not exactly research, but you have to find (with help of a machine or without) items. And together they give you a pass, or directly the are like a key to special gym events.


#17

More reason to do what we already do!!


#18

I just hope the rewards at the end of the quests are not full of disappointment like walking and hatching eggs.
I will get bored with it real quick.


#19

I’m also concerned that the quests may have to be tailored to your biome(s). The release shows a task involving a Dratini. Aside from a water biome & Feb community day I couldn’t tell you when the last time I encountered a wild Dratini. I only seem to hatch them.
What happens if that part of your task is unobtainable / unable to be completed?
Aside from that I’m fairly excited for a new gameplay “system” to be introduced in PoGo which may level the playing field for rural & urban players!

There is a trash can icon next to the quests so I’m assuming you will be able to abandon any that seem unreasonable
