The race course
Prizes for winning the race

The Pokémon Catching Adventure Race sees pairs of Trainers race across an island where they may use up to three Pokémon to assist them. Flying Pokémon are not allowed, but using moves and riding Pokémon is.

The race has three legs. Once a team has reached a certain area within each leg, they will receive a message on their smartphone, telling them which Pokémon they need to catch there. Each catch is verified at a checkpoint, which cannot be passed without catching the correct Pokémon for the leg. The Pokémon for the first leg is Alolan Geodude, the second leg Pokémon is Bruxish, and the third one is Passimian. The first team to cross the finish line wins the race.

The winner receives a trophy and a year's supply of malasadas.
