Pokemon Go Hoenn Collection Challenge: How to Find Bagon
You may not find it in the wild.
Trainers, the 2021 Hoenn Celebration event is going on now in Pokemon Go! From now until January 24 at 8 p.m. local time, you can add lots of Pokemon from the Hoenn region of the Pokemon universe to your in-game collection.
As part of this event, players can complete a Hoenn-themed Collection Challenge by collecting nine specific Pokemon: Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, Aron, Nosepass, Nincada, Bagon, Plusle, and Minun.
Many of these Pokemon can be found in the wild quite easily, but Bagon is a bit different. That is, you likely won’t find this Pokemon in the wild at all. So, how do you collect it?
According to The Silph Road subreddit, Bagon can technically be encountered in the wild during this event, but it’s a “very rare” spawn. The easier way to find Bagon is in Raids. During this Hoenn Celebration, Bagon is appearing in Tier-1 Raids.
If you’re trying to find Bagon in a Raid, be on the lookout for pink Eggs at Pokemon Gyms. While there’s no guarantee every pink Egg you find will hatch into Bagon, you’ll at least know which Raids to watch out for, and which you can ignore.
