How the Cave Collection Challenge works in Pokémon Go

Collection Challenges in Pokémon Go, which were first released in January 2021, run alongside certain in-game events. Each Collection Challenge tasks you with finding a specific number of Pokemon through a variety of means.

Once you've completed the Collection Collection, you'll be rewarded with a number of items and progress for your Elite Collector medal.

The Cave Collection Challenge is part of Go Fest 2021 and will be available till Sunday, 18th July at 6pm (local time).

Collection Challenges are located on the 'Today View,' which is accessed by pressing the field research button (the little binoculars) in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

After accessing 'Today View,' you'll find the list of Pokémon required for the Collection Challenge. Once you've found one of these Pokémon, it will be ticked off the Collection Challenge rooster, which will help you keep track of which ones you've caught and which you haven't.
