Field Research Encounter Stack Limit

Have read you can stack up to 99 reward encounters. While I lost count exactly how many, pretty sure I'm no where near 99, --more like 30-- and upon fleeing new encounters they seem to just disappear.

Does anybody know how many can be stacked?

It used to be 99 prior to the last 2 updates.
If it has changed since then has not been confirmed one way or another.

I would not be surprised if the number we can store has been lowered as it was rather OP when combined with a Lucky Egg and using the 'no animation' exploit - all 99 could be done with a single egg, with time left over.

TL/DR It was definitely 99, but it might have changed.

That's still less than you can get from a mass evolve session, and you can't do both at the same time.

I’m sure they just as much mean using a starpiece to catch stacked research encounters. They won’t run and level 15 pretty easy to catch with a ball or two.***could you go plus at the same time? I’m not sure.

You can occasionally go+ in between encounters if your plus is having a good day but I wouldn't count on it. It's much more resource efficient to only use the stacked encounters when you run out of natural spawns and have a star piece on. It takes quite a bit of effort to build the stack of encounters and you can blow through it in a whiff.

It will depend on the time you do it, and the mons you have ready to catch - and linking it with an event.
.. and yes, it can be OP for dust too with a star piece during the right event.

That post is a month old. I found no proof that a limit of 99 has ever existed.

Stacking encounters for Lucky Eggs is rather lackluster compared to mass evolving. It's quite powerful for Star Pieces however.

Somebody on TSR has stacked like 500.
