How to unlock Alola to Alola research quest

The Alola to Alola quest is the finale in a series of special research task lists in Pokemon Go, and is meant to be a powerful farewell to the Alola region as the game transitions into a new season. There are two ways to unlock the event:

  • First, You can unlock the Alola to Alola quest by completing the three Alola quest lines that already exist: Adventures around Melemele, Akala, Ula’ula, and Poni – parts of the Alola region represented in these quest lines that were added to Pokemon Go during the Alola season.
  • If you haven’t completed or are struggling with the above quest lines, You can also pay $5 at the Pokemon Go store to unlock Alola for Alola in this way as a kind of paid shortcut.

If you want to participate in these quests, You must unlock and launch them before the end of May; After that, they will no longer be unlocked. The good news about these events is that, like most Pokemon Go events, Once you unlock them, they stay in placewhich means you can fill them out at your leisure.

Once you’ve dabbled in the quest, this is a pretty standard Pokemon Go special research prize. It’s broken down into a number of different “steps”, each step having a few different tasks that you need to complete with rewards. Completing a group of tasks gives you another reward, and in this case there’s also a choice of branching paths along the way that determine your reward.

Choose a path in Alola-to-Alola research – choose the best route

The second step of the Alola to Alola quest gives you a choice of one of four different paths through the last two parts of the quest. That’s a pretty big deal, like You can only choose one of the four paths.

What you choose determines what quest missions and rewards you receive You hunt from Alola to Alola in the third and fourth part.

The main difference between the paths is which Oricorio hat you get for completing the quest and what each quest focuses more on in terms of the missions you need to complete. This also correlates with the rewards, which roughly correspond to the task theme of each path.

spoilers aheadbut here is the basic summary to help you choose the best path:

  • Path of Melemel island – Pom-Pom Oricorio Hat, with missions focused on actions related to friendship and sidekick. Key rewards include Golden Razz Berries, Poffins, and Lucky Eggs.
  • Akala Island Trail – Pa’u Oricorio Hat, with missions focused on Eggs, Exploration and Field Research. Rewards include incubators.
  • Path of Ula’ula Island – Baile Oricorio Hat, with missions dedicated to catching Pokémon and related actions. Rewards include rare decoy modules.
  • Path of Poni Island – Sensu Oricorio Hat, while missions focus on combat-related actions. Rewards include Rocket Radars, Star Pieces, and Premium Battle Passes.

As with all of these things, the truth is, there’s no absolute “best” mission path from Alola to Alola – it depends on how you play Pokemon Go. For example, I’m not a big fighter, so I’m not interested in the Poni Island Path. I feel like I always have a backlog of eggs, and there are Pokemon that I don’t have on the current Pokemon Go Egg Chart, so for me the best route would probably be from Akala Island.

Which one is best for you? The above will help you decide. Well, the missions themselves…
