How the Sinnoh Collection Challenge works in Pokémon Go

The Pokémon Go Collection Challenges launched in January 2021 and coincide with other in-game events. Each Collection Challenge asks you to catch a series of Pokémon that, thanks to the event, will appear more often in the wild.

Once you have completed the Collection Challenge by capturing all of them you will receive rewards: you will get various items and you will progress in your Elite Collector medal.

Sinnoh Collection Challenge coincides with Sinnoh Celebration Event – will be available from Tuesday, January 12 at 10 am (local time) to Sunday, January 17 at 8pm (local time).

Keep in mind that the Sinnoh Collection Challenge will disappear forever when the event ends, so if you want the rewards you will have to keep an eye on the Pokémon you need.
