Which path is best in Pokemon Go: Sightseeing or Studious Adventure?

After the first step in the Adventures Near and Far Timed Research, Pokemon Go players must choose between having a Sightseeing or a Studious Adventure. It’s important to note that the Adventure Week Timed Research will give you the same rewards no matter what path you choose. While some events give players a choice between different encounters and items, this one is all about your playstyle.

So, you might prefer one path over the other based on the tasks you must complete. Both paths will grant you Stardust, XP, and encounters with Amaura, Geodude, Alolan Geodude, Diglett, Alolan Diglett, Tyrunt, Nosepass, and Dwebble.

In both cases, you’ll have to explore the world by walking a total of 6 km. The Sightseeing Adventure path is for you if you’re all about hatching Eggs. The Studious Adventure path, on the other hand, is for trainers interested in other Pokemon Go features, like Gifts and Field Research tasks.

Whatever path you choose, you must complete all tasks and claim all rewards before Wednesday, August 2, 2023, at 8 PM (local time).
