Bloon Research Lab

The Bloon Research Lab is a purchasable building in Bloons Monkey City that allows the player to research different bloons. Once a bloon has been researched, it can be used to attack other players with.

When bought, it will start with Red Bloons, Blue Bloons, and Green Bloons. Level 8 is required to unlock this building (although Level 9 is required for Monkey vs Monkey).
