Pokemon GO’s Friendship Day Event is now live, with players able to take part in a Collection Challenge focused on Grass-type Pokemon.
Pokemon GO players will be able to participate in the April 2021 Friendship Day event from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in their local time on April 24th. This event focuses on a wide range of Grass-type Pokemon with increased spawn rates and bonuses.
The Collection Challenge is one of the most important aspects of this event in Pokemon GO. Players will receive a special reward of 175,000 XP if they catch all of the Pokemon required for it. Players, on the other hand, have only the duration of the event to complete the challenge.
With so much XP at stake, players are strongly advised to take on this challenge. Before the timer runs out, players must capture eleven different Pokemon. These Pokemon must be caught during the event and cannot be hatched from eggs or traded from another player.
Bulbasaur, Tangela, Chikorita, Sunkern, Treeko, Cacnea, Turtwig, Snivy, Cottonee, Foongus, and Chespin are the Grass-type Pokemon required for the Friendship Day Collection. Every single one of these Pokemon has increased spawn rates, which means that players can find them all in the wild.
Fortunately for players, the Friendship Day event has made it easier to find these Pokemon in ways other than increased spawn rates. To make it even easier to find these Pokemon, players are advised to use lure modules and incenses to boost spawn rates. During the event, both incenses and lures will last three hours instead of the usual two. This increases the number of opportunities for players to catch these Pokemon.
Another thing to keep in mind while on the hunt is to have enough Pokeballs to capture the various Grass-type Pokemon. As players take part in the event, they are advised to visit as many gyms and Pokestops as possible in order to stock up on items. If players are in an area with other players, there is a good chance they will see multiple PokeStops with lures on them. Because of how lures work, it is best to take advantage of any active ones that come into view.
Although the Pokemon required for the Collection Challenge are among those with increased spawn rates, this does not guarantee that only Pokemon from the challenge will appear during the event. There will be plenty of other Grass-type Pokemon appearing as well, and it is up to the player whether or not they want to capture them.
