Learn Everything about Pokemon Go Research Tasks and Rewards!

In Pokemon Go, Field Research tasks are obtained at a PokeStop. You will get the reward stated in the task after completing it and claiming it. Completing one Field Research task will give you a stamp. You can obtain only one stamp per day. After obtaining 7 stamps you will receive a Research Breakthrough box containing additional rewards (maybe a Legendary Pokemon encounter?).

You receive only one task per PokeStop per day. You can do more tasks by spinning different PokeStops. Gyms do not give out tasks. There is a new medal called Pokemon Ranger awarded for completing 10, 100, and 1,000 Field Research taks.

Special Research tasks do not count for the daily stamp. They cannot be deleted like Field Research tasks, you need to complete all of them to continue. The tasks are progressively harder but the final reward is definitely worth it: a chance to catch Mew! The Silver/Gold Kanto badge and Reach Level 15/25 tasks will show up as completed if you already have the medals or are at those levels or higher.

Up next is a table of all available Field Research tasks and its possible rewards. Please note that the table is not 100% complete but it is a good reference.
