Niantic has announced that the research breakthrough reward for April will be Alolan Exeggutor with bonus stardust.

This Dragon/Grass Type Pokemon has some use as a particularly bulky Water Type counter, and was the first Alolan species to see introduction into Pokemon Go. If you still need an Alolan Exeggutor, then this is your chance to easily capture one, or just shore up your team of Grass Type attackers.

Beyond this, Shadow Entei will continue its availability into April, but that was previously announced already.
