Tapu Fini has also been released alongside A Poni Adventure - the last Alola region-themed special research quest. Currently both the Ultra League and Element Cup are running in the Go Battle League. Elsewhere, we've recently seen the release of more Gen 7 Pokémon as part of the Season of Alola. The first details surrounding Go Fest 2022 have also been announced, including the event date.


How A Poni Adventure works in Pokémon Go

A Poni Adventure was released as part of 2022’s Season of Alola and can be unlocked by simply playing Pokémon Go before Wednesday, 1st June.

It’s the fourth in a set of four special research quests themed around the Alola region - of which A Melemele Adventure, An Akala Adventure and An Ula’ula Adventure have already been released.

By completing all four special research quests before Wednesday, 1st June, you’ll obtain free access to an end-of-season event for the Season of Alola.

A Poni Adventure has no deadline, so, keeping the Wednesday 1st June deadline in mind, you can complete it at your leisure.

A Poni adventure consists of four quest steps and, like most Pokémon Go research quests, you must complete three challenges for each step, collecting the rewards as you progress.

Good luck completing A Poni Adventure in Pokémon Go!
