A Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge is now available in Pokemon GO to celebrate the day of love. Trainers will need to put their Pokemon catching skills to the test and collect a total of twelve different ones. Below you can find a list of which Pokemon to look out for and some tips and tricks to quickly complete this challenge. Here’s how to complete the Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge in Pokemon GO.
The Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge is live from February 14 at 1:00 PM until February 18 at 8 PM Local Time.
How to Complete the Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge
Here are the Pokemon you’ll need to capture for the Pokemon GO Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge:
- Nidoran ♀
- Nidoran ♂
Luckily, you can find nearly all of these Pokemon in the wild, but it remains the most comprehensive collection challenge to date. A few of the Pokemon are evolutions, while others you can only find as a reward for specific research tasks.
Rewards for completing this challenge are 3 Silver Pinap Berries, 3 Rocket Radars, and 2 Charged TMs.
How to get Espeon and Umbreon for Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge
Espeon and Umbreon, for instance, require you to evolve your Eevees with specific names. You can check out our Pokemon GO Eevee evolution names guide for some more details. In short, though, to get Espeon, you can name your Eevee Sakura before evolving it. For Umbreon, you can call it Tamao.
You can only do the name trick for Eevee once per type, so there are other ways to complete this if you can’t use this method. Another way to get Espeon and Umbreon from Gen 2 Eevees are to make an Eevee your buddy and walk 10 km with them. Evolve your Eevee during nighttime for Umbreon or daytime for Espeon.
How to get Latias and Latios for Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge
Two more Pokemon you’ll need to capture are Latias and Latios. These two Legendary Pokemon are available in five-star raids, so make sure you have a Raid Pass or two available. We recommend playing with some friends to trounce them.
How to get Alomomola for Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge
