We have a new event with many new tasks and rewards in Pokemon Go. Here is everything you need to know about the Pokemon Go Lush Jungle Event.

The jungles of Akala Island are the focus of Pokémon Go’s third Alola-themed event. Trainers are being rewarded with new Special Research, Timed Research, and even newly released Pokemon spawns as the three-month-long Season of Alola progresses in Pokemon Go.

The Lush Jungle Timed Research activities are available alongside the current Special Research quest, An Akala Adventure. Players will be able to encounter wild Pokemon, earn XP, and even obtain a few unique berries by completing these activities.
