A new year, brings new updates!
After a well deserved holiday break, the staff at Niantic have returned to work and are continuing to update some previously announced events. They even managed to sneak in a little surprise that we reported on a couple days ago.
Collection Challenges provide a handy guide to collecting Pokémon featured during certain events. Different in-game events will feature different Collection Challenges, helping you grow into the best Trainer you can be.
To get started on a Collection Challenge, open the Today View to see which Pokémon are part of that challenge. Each challenge will disappear once its corresponding in-game event ends, so do your best to collect all the Pokémon in the challenge before then! As you complete Collection Challenges featured in different in-game events, you’ll be able to earn rewards and add to your new Elite Collector medal!
The first Collection Challenge is rolling out now! Complete the Unova-themed Collection Challenge during the event by catching Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Lillipup, Herdier, Roggenrola, Solosis, Ferroseed, and Blitzle, to receive a reward of Stardust, 25 Poke Balls, and 5 Rare Candy. We look forward to seeing you complete your Collection Challenges!
