It appears that the next Research Breakthrough rewards for Pokémon GO have been confirmed.
The year 2019 is around the corner, and it’s already looking to be legendary! When you reach a Research Breakthrough in January and February, you’ll have the chance to encounter several Legendary Pokémon, including Lugia and Ho-Oh! pic.twitter.com/r0Q6DTqoOD

Starting next month and continuing into February, Lugia and Ho-Oh will appear as Research Breakthrough rewards. There is only a chance for them to appear however; the December Research Breakthrough Pokémon in Zapdos, Moltres, Articuno, Entei, Suicune and Raikou may appear instead. It is also not known yet if Lugia and Ho-Oh can be Shiny in Research Breakthroughs, like the Kanto Legendary birds can.
Are you looking forward to catching Lugia and Ho-Oh? Or are you getting sick of seeing them?
