Sightseeing Adventure or Studious Adventure in Pokémon Go: Which Choose Path choice is best?

When it comes to the differences between the Sightseeing Adventure or Studious Adventures paths of the Adventures Near and Far quest in Pokémon Go, the only one you’ll find is the between the challenges.

The Sightseeing Adventure path focuses upon on exploring the world in Pokémon Go – with challenges on hatching eggs, walking distances and spinning PokéStops. Meanwhile, the Studious Adventure, is more of a mixed collection, with challenges around completing field research tasks, sending gifts to friends and and catching different species of Pokémon. Though you do still need to complete the walking challenges.

Since your choice in path does not effect the quest’s rewards, you should make your path choice based upon the challenges you prefer.

Encounters with Alolan Diglett, Alolan Geodude and Dwebble can be earned from both the Sightseeing and Studious Adventure Path.

The Studious does, however, appear to be easiest to complete as it doesn’t require to hatch any eggs, which, if all you’ve been getting our 5km or 10km eggs, can take a long time to finish. Though, if you do go the Studious route, keep in mind that you’ll need at least three friends to send gifts too. Thankfully, you can easily find friend codes by using various Pokémon Go subreddits or local groups.

Personally, I’ll be choosing the Sightseeing Adventure Path, because, come wind or shine, I enjoy walking around playing Pokémon Go. This means my playstyle doesn’t make the egg related challenges a roadblock. (I’m also awful at remembering to send gifts – sorry to anyone on my friend’s list.)

Ultimately, as the rewards don’t change between paths, your choice in down to you – just remember to take a look at the challenges above and take your playstyle for Pokémon Go into account before making your decision.
