Pokemon Suicune

Now that October is well and truly underway, a new batch of Field Research tasks have become available in Pokémon GO, giving players another chance to get their hands on the elusive legendary Pokémon Suicune.

Following the usual setup put in place over the last few months, Suicune can now be obtained by working towards your weekly Field Research tasks in the game, with a total of seven daily stamps being required to unlock an encounter. If you'd like to add this extremely rare Johto Pokémon to your collection, there's no better time.

Elsewhere, new water-themed tasks have been introduced which can give trainers the opportunity to catch themselves Krabby. If you're lucky, you might even encounter a shiny Krabby - a much rarer version of the same creature - so you'll definitely want to work towards these goals. Shiny Krabby and Kingler (Krabby's evolved stage) can also be found in the wild during this time.

Will you be braving the outdoors to catch your favourite 'mon? Share your plans with us in the comments below.
