Which Island Path to Choose in Pokemon GO Alola to Alola Event

The matter of which Island Path you choose in the Pokemon GO Alola to Alola event, that’s pretty much completely up to your personal preference. Simply choose a Pokemon GO Path that has the rewards you want most. For example, Poni is more combat-focused, but it does reward you with a Premium Battle Pass, which is pretty nice. On the other hand, Akala is much easier to wrap up, and you get two regular and one Super Incubator, among other stuff. That’s also pretty enticing. So, just go through the list and pick whatever speaks to you most. Feel free to share your preferences in the comments below.
