Tips for completing the Pokémon League Collection Challenge in Pokémon Go

Here are some tips which will help you complete the Pokémon League Collection Challenge in Pokémon Go:

  • If you want to complete the Pokémon League Collection Challenge during the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto event, then make sure you play between either 1pm to 2pm or 6pm to 7pm (local time). During these periods, the Pokémon found around the Pokémon League will appear more frequently in the wild.
  • You have until Sunday, 28th February at 7:59pm (local time) to complete this Collection Challenge, so don't feel like you have to rush the experience!
  • If you're having trouble finding a specific Pokémon, try using Incense to attract Pokémon to your specific location. It's important to note, however, that during the Tour: Kanto event, the Pokémon attracted to Incense will differ slightly depending on which version you're playing.
  • You can also attract Pokémon to your location by placing a Lure Module on a PokéStop. There are also three special Lure Modules - Glacial, Magnetic and Mossy - which will attract specific Pokémon types.

  • Don't forget to use Razz and Nanab berries to make Pokémon easier to catch.
  • If you want to save PokéBalls, try targeting Pokémon with lower CP levels, because they will be easier to catch.
  • Keep an eye on the Pokémon radar in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen and use it to track specific Pokémon to the PokéStop they're currently hiding by.

How the Pokémon League Collection Challenge works in Pokémon Go

Collection Challenges in Pokémon Go were released in January 2021 and run alongside certain in-games events. Each Collection Challenge will see you catching a number of Pokémon that, thanks to the event, are appearing more frequently in the wild.

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

The Pokémon League Collection Challenge is part of the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto event and is available for a week after the event to ensure you have enough time to complete it. This means it will be available from Saturday, 20th February at 9am (local time) to Sunday, 28th February at 7:59pm (local time).

Collection Challenges can be found 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. Depending on whether you've been looking at your current field or special research tasks, you may have to scroll to your left.

After accessing 'Today View,' you'll find a list of the Pokémon you need to catch to complete the Collection Challenge. Catching a Pokémon in the Collection Challenge rooster will tick it off the list to keep track of which ones you've caught and which you haven't.

Remember - this Collection Challenge must be completed before Sunday, 28th February 7:59pm (local time) or else you'll never be able to add it to your Elite Collector medal.
