Spring into Spring Collection Challenge Pokémon list in Pokémon Go

The Spring into Spring Collection Challenge is part of the current Pokémon Go event and is available until Monday, 18th April at 8pm (local time). By successfully completing the Collection Challenge by then, you’ll both earn its rewards and add progress to your Elite Collectors Medal.

Here are the Pokémon in the Spring into Spring Collection Challenge, along with how to find them:

  • Bunnelby - In the wild
  • Nidoran (Male) - In the wild
  • Nidoran (Female) - In the wild
  • Jigglypuff - In the wild

Completing this challenge will reward you with 2000 XP, 2000 Stardust and an encounter with a Flower Crown Togetic. This Collection Challenge will also be added to your Elite Collector’s medal.

New to the game is a long overdue Mega Evolution update, which has arrived alongside the A Mega Moment research. May 2022 in Pokémon Go includes the Water Festival, which celebrates the release of Dewpider and Araquanid. Tapu Fini has also been released alongside A Poni Adventure - the last Alola region-themed special research quest. Currently both the Ultra League and Element Cup are running in the Go Battle League. Elsewhere, we've recently seen the release of more Gen 7 Pokémon as part of the Season of Alola. The first details surrounding Go Fest 2022 have also been announced, including the event date.

Spring into Spring field research tasks in Pokémon Go

Spinning PokéStops throughout the Spring into Spring event in Pokémon Go may lead to you collecting an event-exclusive field research task.

While these tasks can be saved and completed after the event ends, we recommend completing some during the event itself. This is because some of the Pokémon you’ll receive as rewards for completing the field research tasks are required for the Spring into Spring Collection Challenge.

Here are the Spring into Spring field research tasks:

  • Hatch an egg reward - Flower Crown Pikachu or Flower Crown Eevee encounter
  • Hatch 2 eggs reward - Flower Crown Buneary encounter
  • Hatch 4 eggs reward - Flower Crown Chansey encounter
