If you need any of these, this event will be a great time to stock up on candy.

There will be another Collection Challenge

The Unova event introduced the first Collection Challenge, where you have to catch certain species of Pokémon in exchange for rewards. It looks like there’s going to be another one for the Pokémon GO Sinnoh event. This will require you to catch Sinnoh Pokémon. If you complete the challenge, you will also get progress towards a collection medal.
