Pokémon GO will be receiving new content, including an Alolan Exeggutor with an exclusive move, as part of an upcoming Research Day event.
The next Pokémon GO Research Day will be introducing a new version of Exeggutor to the game along with an exclusive move. Research Days are commonplace in the world-famous augmented reality game, alongside other assorted Pokémon GO changes and updates.
Pokémon GO’s Season of Alola is in full swing, bringing with it a number of unique additions unlockables. The biggest draw of Season of Alola, however, has been the introduction of 7th-generation Pokémon that were featured in Pokémon Sun & Moon. Now-iconic Pokémon such as Decidueye, Rowlet, and Incineroar were added as part of this wave, further expanding and bolstering the franchise’s massive roster. Now that these Pokémon are in Pokémon GO, a number of new doors have been opened for players looking to grow their collection and engage with various seasonal activities. Overall, this new season has been received positively by players, even if certain perks were removed from Pokémon GO.

The Season of Alola is ongoing, and the Pokémon GO blog recently announced even more new content. An upcoming Research Day will introduce new costumed versions of Pokémon such as Lopunny, Togekiss, and Togetic, and it will also serve as the debut of legendary Pokémon Tapu Bulu, the guardian deity of Ula’ula Island. Another notable inclusion comes in the form of the Alolan Exeggutor, which players can obtain by evolving their vanilla Exeggutor during the event. To top things off, this version of Exeggutor will be able to perform the Draco Meteor ability. Several unique encounters and bonuses will also be featured in the event. This Research Day will take place from Tuesday, April 12 at 10 AM to Monday, April 18 at 8 PM.
The Season of Alola began by adding over twenty new Pokémon to Pokémon GO, so it’s likely that fans will be pleased to learn about this additional expansion. While Tapu Bulu is the only entirely new addition to the game, the new costumes and alternate version of Exeggutor certainly add valuable content to the game. The powerful Draco Meteor move is one that many fans will likely be motivated to obtain, making this event even more exciting.
Looking past this update, it will be interesting to see how Pokémon GO continues to develop and improve its core game and features. The game has been the subject of some recent criticism owing to its controversial changes to incense and other bonuses, so future updates could serve to remedy or exacerbate certain issues. Until more substantial changes are made, however, Pokémon GO players will surely get some enjoyment out of these Research Day additions.
