Pokemon Go has revealed the finale for the Season of Alola, and with it comes an End-of-Season Special Research. Here’s everything we know, including the rewards you can earn. 

As the Season of Alola comes to a close on June 1, Pokemon Go has revealed the finale event: Alola to Alola. Focusing on what has been released over the last few months, the event gives players another chance to capture their favorite Island Deity.

When Tapu Koko, Fini, Lele, and Bulu were released earlier in the season, Niantic promised that trainers who complete the four accompanying Special Research stories will be awarded the opportunity to take part in the End-of-Season research.

Don’t fret, however, as those who are unsuccessful in completing all four Special Research will be able to pay $4.99 USD to receive the tasks as well.
