All Water Festival A Poni Adventure Special Research tasks and rewards for Pokémon Go

This actually doesn't have much to do with water.

Niantic pulled a fast one on fans, launching some new Special Research early despite it being tied to the Pokémon Go Water Festival event, which runs from May 12 to 20.

The Poni Island Special Research continues the ongoing Season of Alola Special Research, which has been present in each major event tied to one of Alolas island deities. Tapu Fini is appearing in five-star raids during the event and is the last of the guardians to be added to the game. 

The Poni Island Special Research will run from May 10 until June 1, which is when the Season of Alola concludes. This means it will be available throughout the end of the season and its final event, Alola to Alola, which is scheduled for May 25 to 31. 

Players will also have Timed Research and a Global Challenge to complete when the Water Festival is live, but here are all the research tasks and rewards that go along with the Poni Island Special Research too in the meantime.
