Big Pokemon Go update will bring all new (and Mew) content

Pokemon Go looks to be introducing the legendary Mew through a new quest system coming "later this week". According to the referred game's official blog, " A series of mysterious happenings are occurring all over the world, and Professor Willow is seeking Trainers to help him find out if this is connected to the Mythical Pokémon Mew". Field Research tasks, the game's version of daily quests, will offer more challenging tasks for greater rewards.

The original idea was to use the collected data to target political ads at people based on their psychometric profiles .

The more stops you spin the better as you can string together these tasks for stamps - after seven you can claim a Research Breakthrough prize which contains better items and even legendary Pokemon. This will involve engaging in special and unsafe battles and a host of other exciting challenges. There will also be the opportunity for "Special Research", which will be requested by Professor Willow (the dude at the game's start). Here the players will find the scope to make "important discoveries". Throwing the legendary Mew into the mix is sure to get players excited, too, as the little pink Pokemon has a lot of mystery surrounding it, including its ability to learn any move (assuming Niantic sticks to the classic games). By completing tasks in that category, players will gain XP and also work their way to even bigger rewards. Later this week, PG trainers will receive new activities and challenges to take on that will end up yielding in-game rewards. Pokemon Go did not specify whether everyone would have access to Special Research or if it would be randomly assigned like EX Raid Passes. You can complete as many Research Tasks as you please in a single day but you'll only be able to gather one stamp per day.
