Alola to Alola

Trainers,

Before the Season of Alola ends, we’ve got one last event planned to close the Season out in style! During the Alola to Alola event, Trainers can embark on a branching Special Research story that offers different tasks and rewards based on the path you choose.

While this event marks the end of the Season of Alola, it also means a new set of adventures is on the horizon. What could be waiting in the next Season? Let’s GO see for ourselves…

End-of-Season Special Research: Alola to Alola

Complete all four of the event-exclusive Special Research stories by June 1, 2022 at 9:59 a.m. local time, to unlock a bonus end-of-Season Special Research story!

Reminisce about your favorite island in the Alola region with this branching Special Research story that lets you pick between Melemele Island, Akala Island, Ula’Ula Island, and Poni Island, and enjoy different tasks and rewards based on your selection!

Tickets to access the end-of-Season Special Research story will also be available in the shop for US$4.99 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency)*.

Trainers who obtain the end-of-Season Special Research story by completing the four individual Special Research paths will be able to purchase the ticket in the shop for additional rewards.
