The Pokemon Go Season of Mischief is underway and with it has come many different events, including yet another Collection Challenge for players to complete.

The Season of Mischief is themed around the mythical Pokemon Hoopa, who first started to be teased on the second day of this year’s Pokemon GO Fest back in July.

Hoopa is a Psychic/Ghost type Pokemon with its base Confined form and Psychic/Dark with its Unbound form, which is part of the theme of the latest Collection Challenge for the one day Hoopa’s Arrival event.

Pokemon Go Collection Challenge For Hoopa’s Arrival

Collection challenges have been a part of Pokemon GO for awhile now, with there being multiple different ones over the last year or so.

This latest Collection Challenge is focused on Psychic, Ghost, and Dark type Pokemon, with Hoopa being Psychic/Ghost or Psychic/Dark as mentioned before.

Compared to many of the Collection Challenges that last for days, this one is a one day only event, so you will have to complete it quickly. The challenge starts at 11:00 am local time and runs through 5:00 pm local time on Sunday, September 5.

To complete the Hoopa’s Arrival Collection Challenge, you will have to catch 13 different Pokemon that fit at least one of those three types, which are as follows:

  • Poochyena
  • Duskull
  • Alolan Rattata
  • Purrloin
  • Exeggcute
  • Jynx
  • Natu
  • Spoink
  • Drifloon
  • Carvanha
  • Beldum
  • Girafarig
  • Hoopa

To complete this latest Collection Challenge, you simply have to do just like the rest of them and catch each of them. Sometimes there are Pokemon that require you to evolve or trade them to complete a challenge, but this one is very straight forward.

Completing this Collection Challenge just requires you to catch each of them in the wild, which should be easy with the use of an Incense. Hoopa is the only one you have to do some additional work to obtain though.

To get Hoopa, you will have to complete the first three steps of the Mysterious Mischief special research. This really only means you have to worry about completing steps 1 and 3, as the second one was previously a placeholder until the third was unlocked.

Completing the Collection Challenge will reward you with 7200 XP, 10 Hoopa Candy, and the Poke Ball Lift Pose.

That should cover everything you should need to know about the Hoopa’s Arrival Collection Challenge. Just make sure you take part in the event while it’s going on and don’t miss out on this latest medal.
