A Collection Challenge (Japanese: コレクションチャレンジ Collection Challenge) is a list of Pokémon to catch assigned to the player in Pokémon GO that has a specific time period during which it may be completed. Similar to Timed Research sets, Collection Challenges are accessed through the "Today" tab of the Research view and does not include dialogue with Professor Willow. Completing a Collection Challenge earns a point for the Elite Collector medal.

Special Conditions

Under normal circumstances, the player just need to catch a specific Pokémon in order to validate its Collection Challenge entry, but some collections require special actions to be performed in order to validate some entries. Those conditions can be identified by a marker icon next to the Pokémon sprite.

Event Pokémon Trainer must catch this Pokémon wearing a costume during a specific event.
Evolve Trainer must acquire this Pokémon by evolving from an earlier form.
Trade Trainer must acquire this Pokémon by trading with another trainer.
Shadow Trainer must catch this Shadow Pokémon after defeating a Team GO Rocket Grunt.
