Pokemon Go has revealed its next event for the Season of Alola: Sustainability Week. Here’s everything we know about it, from the debut of Oranguru to the event’s unique Timed Research twist. 

Since its launch in 2016, Pokemon Go has continued to provide trainers with a way to stay active while being able to catch their favorite fictional creatures straight from their phones.

PoGo’s most recent quarterly theme is the Season of Alola, which has introduced a wide variety of ‘mon from the Alolan Dex. Sustainability Week 2022 is no different, as it debuts another brand new creature.
