As usual, the themed tasks for the previous month (Seel, Slowpoke, Horsea, Krabby, Kingler, Jynx¹, Golduck, Staryu, and Absol) were rotated out in favor of the new set.

Notably, this month continues the trend of decreasing themed tasks each month (April: 11, May: 10, June: 9, July: 7). However, the event-specific tasks have continued to increase in frequency. Might we see more event tasks later this month? Only time will tell. Stay safe out there, travelers!
