Hello everyone, the Alola to Alola event kicks off Wednesday, May 25 at 10:00 a.m. local time to Tuesday, May 31 to 8:00 p.m. local time.
Here are the most important parts you need to know to get the most out of the event!
There is a collection challenge for this event that rewards players an Elite Collector medal, 15 ultra balls, and encounter with Rockruff and 15,000 XP. The best thing to do with these little challenges is pop a lucky egg and rack up the catches and double the XP received for completion.
Evolve Cubone into Alolan Marowak with the charged move shadow bone! Previously trainers could only get an Alolan Marowak through raids or a breakthrough research encounter, now this adds an easier way to get one of the better great league 'mons with a useful PVP move.
In the wild trainers can find and catch the following: Alola Rattata, Cubone, Rowlet, Litten, Popplio, Pikipek and Yungoos. In the field research task encounters players can expect: Rowlet, Litten, Popplio, Pikipek and Yungoos. These are incredibly useful as the Alola starters are still relatively new, and if a trainer is patient, can catch a high-IV one and save it for that respective starters’ Community Day.
Another piece to this event is the raids available, we will break this down by tiers. For one-star raids, trainers can battle Alola Rattata, Alola Geodude, Alola Diglett, Alola Grimer and Rockruff. In three-star raids the pool dwindles down to Alola Exeggutor, Alola Marowak, and Alola Raichu. Finally, in five-star raids, the four Tapus reign supreme as Tapu Bulu, Tapu Fini, Tapu Lele, and Tapu Koko occupy gyms.
Most importantly are the four paths of special research!
In the Melemele Island path, trainers earn two poffins, a lure module, four lucky eggs, an encounter with Alola Raichu, pom-pom style Oricorio hat avatar item and more, according to poekmongohub.net. These tasks focus on sending gifts to friends, snapshots and the social aspect of the game.
The Akala Island Path focuses on exploration and walking challenges. Trainers earn, an incense, two incubators, a super incubator, an Alola Marowak encounter, a Pa’u style Oricorio hat avatar item and more.
With a focus on catching pokemon, the Ula’ula Island path gives trainers a glacial lure, magnetic lure, four incense, an Alola Vulpix encounter and a Baile style Oricorio hat avatar item and more.
Poni Island path gives trainers a rocket radar, three star pieces, a premium battle pass, an encounter with Alola Exeggutor and a Sensu style Oricorio hat, and these focus on battle challenges.
This event is sure to keep trainers busy for the next six days, and it will be a great way to rack up tons of XP in the process. If done well, this event can rack up millions of XP for trainers!
