Pokémon GO TCG Crossover - All Collection Challenges

Learn about all the Collection Challenges you can complete in the Pokemon GO's TCG Crossover event.
Pokémon GO TCG Crossover - All Collection Challenges

The Pokémon GO TCG Crossover Event is live, and a whole slate of new Collection Challenges was added for trainers everywhere to complete. As the event runs on, more will be added to the mix, but so far there are six main challenges to pursue.

Most events will have one main Collection Challenge that consists of nine Pokémon from an event-based pool. That even-based pool exists in the TCG Crossover as well, but there is a focus on a separation between Kanto starters. On top of the normal challenges, this event also brings tiers with a higher difficulty for trainers who want even more of a challenge.

In total, there will be nine Collection Challenges tied to the TCG Crossover event, and the idea is to create a card rarity difficulty within Pokémon GO. Most trainers will get the first three, but the second set will be even more difficult to get, and so on. Only the most dedicated will end up getting all nine complete by the end.

At the moment, there are only six challenges, and the final three will appear on June 23. Until then, you can head to your daily challenges tab to find everything available in the event. Each challenge completed will give you an Elite Collector Badge and more rewards. You can find them all listed below.

  • Catch Bulbasaur
  • Catch Spinarak

After these challenges, the next three will go higher in difficulty. The last of the total six will be labeled as the Advanced Challenge, and it provides the most in terms of rewards and effort.
