Pokemon Go Friendship Day Collection Challenge Guide

You have a short time to earn 175,000 experience points!

Trainers, the Grass-type Pokemon Friendship Day event will take place in Pokemon Go on April 24 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time. During this event, Grass-type Pokemon will appear more frequently than normal in the wild, and players will earn three times the normal number of experience points when catching Pokemon. (Check out everything going on during Friendship Day in our previous coverage.)

As part of these Friendship Day festivities, players can complete the Friendship Day Collection Challenge to receive a ton of experience points.

According to a screenshot shared by user "issiech" on The Silph Road subreddit, this Collection Challenge will ask you to collect 11 different Pokemon in a limited amount of time:

  • Bulbasaur
  • Tangela
  • Chikorita
  • Sunkern
  • Treecko
  • Cacnea
  • Turtwig
  • Snivy
  • Cottonee
  • Foongus
  • Chespin

According to Leek Duck, all of these Pokemon will be available to encounter in the wild during the Friendship Day event.

If you complete this Collection Challenge before running out of time, you’ll receive 175,000 experience points. If you activate a Lucky Egg before turning in the Collection Challenge, you’ll double your reward to a whopping 350,000 experience points instead.
