Tasks & Rewards For Pokémon GO: A Poni Adventure Special Research

A new Special Research arrives today in Pokémon GO. A Poni Adventure Special Research will release along with the new Alolan Island Guardian, the Legendary Pokémon Tapu Fini. This is the fourth of four Special Research questlines tied to these Alolan Guardians. Note, though, that these Special Research questlines do not offer encounters with any of the Legendaries but rather simply theme their quest dialogue around the new Legendary.

After the current run of raids, Tapu Fini will remain as the Tier Five raid boss for another rotation. It will, however, be joined by all four of the Alola Island Guardians for a final celebratory run closing out the Season of Alola in Pokémon GO.
