As the sun begins to set on the Season of Alola, Pokémon GO is offering a final farewell tour with the Alola to Alola event. Through Tuesday, May 31, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. local time, Trainers can celebrate the sunny Alola region with a Catch Challenge, event-themed Pokémon, a unique Special Research story, and more. Take on a tropical Collection Challenge to make progress on your Elite Collector medal, and earn 15,000 XP, 15 Ultra Balls, and an encounter with the im-paw-sibly adorable Rockruff. Over the course of the event, all four of Alola's Legendary guardian deities—Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu, and Tapu Fini—will appear in five-star raids.
Celebrate the friends you've made along the way with double the Stardust for opening Gifts from friends. Club opponents with an Alolan Marowak that knows the Charged Attack Shadow Bone by evolving Cubone during the event. And play in style with new avatar items including a Rowlet backpack, Litten backpack, and Popplio backpack available for purchase in the in-game shop.
Go Island Hopping with the Alola to Alola Special Research Story
The Alola to Alola Special Research story offers the chance to embark on an adventure of your choice inspired by the islands of radiant Alola. Trainers have until Wednesday, June 1, 2022, to complete all four parts of the event-exclusive Special Research story—inspired by Melemele Island, Akala Island, Ula'ula Island, and Poni Island—to unlock a bonus Special Research story. Tickets to this bonus Special Research story cost $4.99, but Trainers who obtain this Special Research story by finishing all four paths will still be able to purchase this ticket in the shop for additional rewards.
Choose this path if you're interested in tasks focused on sending Gifts to friends and taking snapshots. Rewards will include two Poffins, a Lure Module, four Lucky Eggs, an encounter with Alolan Raichu, a Pom-Pom Style Oricorio hat avatar item, and more.
The Akala Island tasks require Trainers to explore a certain number of kilometers and spin a certain number of PokéStops to earn an Incense, two Incubators, a Super Incubator, an encounter with Alolan Marowak, and a Pa'u Style Oricorio Hat avatar item.
Take on research tasks like catching a certain number of Pokémon or performing certain types of throws while catching Pokémon to earn a Glacial Lure, a Magnetic Lure, four Incense, an encounter with Alolan Vulpix, and a Baile Style Oricorio Hat avatar item.
Choose Poni Island for tasks focused on winning Trainer Battles in the GO Battle League and defeating Team GO Rocket Leaders to earn a Rocket Radar, three Star Pieces, a Premium Battle Pass, an encounter with Alolan Exeggutor, and a Sensu Style Oricorio Hat avatar item.
