Niantic is adding Pokémon from the Alola region into Pokémon Go for the first time, if you don’t count regional forms, starting with a new event to celebrate the seventh generation of Pokémon. 

From March 1 to 9, the Welcome to Alola event will introduce Rowlet, Litten, Popplio, and more, with players benefitting from increased spawns for new Pokémon.

Along with Rowlet, Litten, Popplio, Pikipek, and Yungoos spawning in the wild, Rockruff and Jangmo-o are available in new Eggs, Tapu Koko will be a five-star raid boss, and Comfey is appearing, though the latter is exclusive to players in Hawaii. 

For players looking to participate in this event, there is new Pokemon Go Special Research and a Collection Challenge to complete. 

Here are all of the tasks and rewards for the “A Melemele Adventure” Special Research and new Field Research, which will reward players with special encounters and additional items.
