The Season of Timeless Travels has arrived in Pokémon Go! The Along the Routes event is here, bringing Gift Exchange and the A Route to New Friendships quest with it. During it, take the time to try out Routes and Party Play while you're hunting down rare Pokémon, fighting in the Go Battle League or competing in PokéStop Showcases.

How A Melemele Adventure works in Pokémon Go

A Melemele Adventure was released as part of the Welcome to Alola event in Pokémon Go, but, as long as you play the game before Wednesday 1st June, you'll unlock this quest.

It's the first in a set of four special research quests themed around the Alola region, with the others focusing on Akala Island, Ula'ula Island and Poni Island. If all four research quests are completed before Wednesday, 1st June, then you'll be granted free access to an end-of-season event for the Season of Alola.

This doesn't, however, mean that A Melemele Adventure, or any other of special research quests in the set, have a deadline, so, if you'd prefer to take them at your own pace, you can do so.

A Melemele Adventure consists of four quest steps and, like all research quests in Pokémon Go, you must complete the three challenges for each step, along with collecting the rewards, to progress.

Good luck completing A Melemele Adventure in Pokémon Go!
