Pokemon Go Alola to Alola Special Research: Choose a Path … – VG247


The Season of Alola is ending, but before it does, there's time to complete some missions and grab some great rewards.
The Season of Alola is coming to a close in the world of Pokemon Go, and that can only mean one thing: a new round of special research to close out the season, giving players a unique opportunity to catch many Pokemon from across the Alola region – including some true legends.
The Alola to Alola event features a range of things you’ll need to consider including some challenging special research tasks, a Pokemon collection challenge, and even some branching path action where you’ll be asked to choose a path to forge your way through the quest.
This page deals with everything you need to know about that quest, including:
The Alola to Alola quest is the finale of a series of special research task lists in Pokemon Go, and it’s designed to be a strong farewell to the Alola region as the game forges on into a new season. There’s two ways to unlock the event:
If you want to participate in thest quests, you must unlock and start them before the end of May; after that point they’ll no longer unlock. The good news about these events is that like most Pokemon Go events, once you’ve unlocked them they remain in place, thus meaning you can complete them at your leisure.
Once you’re into the quest, it’s pretty standard Pokemon Go special research fare; it’s broken into a number of different ‘steps’, with each steps having a few different tasks you must complete with rewards. Completing a group of tasks nets you a further reward, and in this instance, there’s also a branching path choice along the way that’ll determine your reward.
At the second step of the Alola to Alola quest, you’ll be given a choice between one of four different paths through the final two parts of the quest. This is a pretty big deal, as you can only choose one of the four paths.
Whichever one you choose will determine what quest missions and rewards you’re chasing in the third and fourth parts of Alola to Alola.
The primary difference between the paths is which Oricorio Hat you get for completing the quest, plus what each quest is more focused on in terms of the missions you’ll need to complete. This also correlates with the rewards, which roughly correspond to the task theme of each path.
Spoilers ahead, but here’s the basic summary to help you choose the best path:
As with all of these things, the truth is that there is no absolute ‘best’ mission path to take in Alola to Alola – it depends on how you play Pokemon Go. I’m not much of a battler, for instance, so I’m not interested in the Poni Island Path. I feel like I always have a backlog of eggs, and there’s Pokemon I don’t have on the current Pokemon Go Egg Chart, so for me the best path would probably be the Akala Island one.
Which is best for you? The above will help you to decide. Now, the missions themselves…
The Alola to Alola research is broken into four different steps, with each step having a handful of missions players must complete in order to advance to the next stage of the quest, with rewards offered along the way. Here’s the quest phases – remember, after Part 2, you must pick a path:
Final Reward: 1000 XP, 500 Stardust, 15x Poke Balls.
At this stage, you’re asked to Choose a Path, which is described in the section above.
You’ll need to choose between Melemele Island, Akala Island, Ula’ula Island, and Poni Island. The Island path you choose will determine the missions and rewards you then face. You can hit the island name links above in order to head to the section with that path’s missions.

An additional part of the farewell events for the Season of Alola is another Pokemon collection challenge – this time called, naturally, the Alola to Alola Collection Challenge. Like the main event, this will expire at the end of May, so you’ll need to act fast to complete it and get the associated medals that this collection task adds to your rewards.
There’s only a handful of Pokemon in this collection challenge – and they’re all relatively easy to obtain – mostly through evolution of Pokemon that have been common spawns right throughout the Season of Alola. Here’s the Pokemon required and how to get them:
Catching all of these Pokemon to complete the Collection Challenge will net you a bunch of XP, 15 Ultra Balls, and a chance to catch a Rockruff.
