Pokémon Go has had a busy start to the new year with a Sinnoh event having recently just finished. Kyogre and Groudon return to Raids which is fantastic news for trainers, in addition to the Sinnoh region having been replaced by Hoenn with its own Collection Challenge. Here you’ll find everything you must know about the Pokémon Go Hoenn Collection Challenge, and you’ll also find the event’s field research tasks and rewards.

In addition to the return of Kyogre and Groudon in Raids, January 19th is also home to a Shroomish spotlight hour for trainers to participate in.
