Pokemon Go Valentine's Day 2021 Collection Challenge Guide
Everything you need to know.
Pokemon Go’s 2021 Valentine’s Day event is now well underway, giving players around the world the chance to encounter lots of cute (and pink) Pokemon for a limited time. (To learn more about this year’s Valentine’s Day festivities, check out our previous coverage.)
As part of the game’s Valentine’s Day event, players can complete the Valentine’s Day 2021 Collection Challenge to receive three Silver Pinap Berries, three Rocket Radars, and two Charged TMs.
To complete this Collection Challenge, you’ll need to collect 12 different Pokemon:
Unlike past Collection Challenges in Pokemon Go, the Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge focuses heavily on raiding, as five of the Pokemon simply can’t be found in the wild. As reported by The Silph Road subreddit, Espeon and Umbreon can only be found in Raids, while Latias and Latios can be found in Raids and as rewards for completing battles in the Go Battle League. Finally, Alomomola can be found in Raids and by completing specific Field Research tasks.
Remember, even if you already have all of these Pokemon in your inventory, they won’t count for this collection -- you must collect “new” versions of these Pokemon for them to count. In addition, trading and evolving Pokemon won’t count. So, for instance, you can’t evolve Eevee into Espeon for this to count for the challenge. You must catch Espeon in its already evolved form.
