The Pokemon Go Welcome to Alola Collection Challenge has arrived, alongside a set of event-exclusive Field Research tasks to complete for some great rewards.
Collection Challenges are limited-time quests that require Pokemon Go players to catch a lineup of specific Pokemon within a set timeframe. Rewards usually include an Elite Collector Medal and some useful items.
For the Welcome to Alola event (which is the first part of the new Season of Alola) there’s a Tropical Collection Challenge that features all of the new Alola-region Pokemon that are making their Go debut.
Below, you’ll find tips on where to find every Pokemon in the Tropical Collection Challenge, as well as details on the Welcome to Alola event-exclusive Field Research tasks.

Pokemon Go Welcome to Alola Collection Challenge explained
You’ll need to catch the following Alola region Pokemon to complete the Tropical Collection Challenge:
|Pokemon||How to catch||Sprite|
|Rowlet||Appearing in the Wild|
|Litten||Appearing in the Wild|
|Popplio||Appearing in the Wild|
|Pikipek||Appearing in the Wild & as a Field Research task reward|
|Yungoos||Appearing in the Wild & as a Field Research task reward|
|Gumshoos||Evolve a Yungoos|
Once you’ve collected all of these Pokemon, you’ll be rewarded with 7,000 XP and 15 Ultra Balls. The progress will also be added to your Elite Collector Medal.
How to evolve Yungoos into Gumshoos in Pokemon Go
While most of the Pokemon in the Tropical Collection Challenge simply need to be caught, Gumshoos must be evolved from Yungoos, as they won’t be appearing as a wild spawn during this event.
You’ll need 50 Candy to evolve Yungoos into Gumshoos, which you can get by catching as many Yungoos as you can in the Wild. Remember that using Pinap Berries will get you bonus Candy.
You’ll need to catch the Alola starters for this Collection Challenge.
Pokemon Go Welcome to Alola Field Research tasks
Here are all of the event-exclusive Field Research tasks you can get during the Welcome to Alola event, as well as the rewards on offer for completing them:
- Catch 7 Pokemon – 10 Poke Balls or 10 Great Balls
- Use 7 Berries to help catch Pokemon – 7 Ultra Balls
- Walk 1km – Pikipek encounter or Yungoos encounter
You can unlock these Field Research tasks by spinning PokeStops during the Welcome to Alola event, although it’s never guaranteed which task you’ll get – it’s entirely at random.
The Welcome to Alola event begins on March 1 and runs until March 9, so you’ve got just over a week to complete the Tropical Collection Challenge and these Field Research tasks.
