The Season of Alola has finally begun in Pokemon GO, and a new Special Research questline called “A Melemele Adventure” has been added to the game to kick off the new season. As the name suggests, this Special Research questline is centered around the Melemele Island of the Alola region.
Completing these Special Research Tasks is a great way to stock up on supplies for the new season, and it’s also an easy way to get guaranteed encounters with some of the new Alolan Pokemon that are making their debut in Pokemon GO this season. Some of them can even be shiny, so there’s a lot to look forward to. Here’s what you need to know about the Melemele Special Research in Pokemon GO.
How to Start A Melemele Adventure Special Research in Pokemon GO
This Special Research can be started anytime after March 1, which is the day that the Season of Alola begins. To start the first set of Special Research Tasks, just log into Pokemon GO and tap the Field Research button in the bottom right corner of the screen. This will expire when the season ends on June 1, so you only have 3 months to complete it. This set of quests will reward you with Alolan Pokemon encounters, including Yungoos, Pikipek, and more. Here are all the Melemele Special Research Tasks and Rewards in Pokemon GO.
