It also should be noted that Cubone can evolve into Alolan Marowak during this event. And when you do, Alolan Marowak will automatically know the exclusive move, Shadow Bone. It takes 50 Cubone Candy to evolve Cubone into Alolan Marowak.
Alola to Alola Special Research
Throughout the Season of Alola, trainers were treated to four separate event-exclusive Special Research stories based on the four islands of the Alola region. While those specific Special Research stories don’t have a deadline to complete, trainers who have completed all four by June 1 at 9:59 a.m. local time will unlock a new Special Research story.
Trainers will have to choose which island to revisit and complete another Special Research task line filled with new rewards based on the story they selected.
Access to this end-of-season story will also be available in the in-game shop for $4.99. Trainers who obtain the end-of-Season Special Research story by completing the four individual Special Research paths will be able to purchase the ticket in the shop for additional rewards.
Here are the four paths trainers can choose from.
