Trainers thrilled for new Research Breakthroughs
Niantic has announced that Research Breakthrough encounters for September and October will be with Eevee wearing flower crowns. Trainers also have the chance to encounter a shiny Eevee wearing a flower crown.
The encounters for July and August were legendary Pokemon Latias, Latios, Kyogre or Groudon. Chance encounters with shiny variants of any of the four were also possible.
Many trainers have taken to Twitter to argue that Research Breakthrough encounters with hippie Eevee’s instead of legendary Pokemon is a step backwards:

This is probably the worst idea ever.

This has got to be the most pathetic research breakthrough ever. I’m very disappointed in you, Niantic.— Luuk Muller - TL 40 (@LMMuller7) August 30, 2019
Not everybody is disappointed though:
Fuck man every one complaining about this is pathetic .. I tbh wouldn’t mind a shiny flower crown eevee as I don’t have one . Y’all need to stop complaining over a free game . A game who literally just gave us the best ultra unlock ever— 🖤xSamiiSlayerx🖤 (@samii_fraser) August 30, 2019
