Pokémon Go BD & SP event collection challenge and research tasks

The BD & SP event is coming to Pokémon Go this week to celebrate the release of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

This features a series of Gen 4 costumed starter Pokémon with hats, which are required to complete a Collection Challenge.

While searching for them, you can complete a selection of event-exclusive Field Research tasks to earn some useful Pokémon encounters.

List of challenges and rewards for the Pokémon Go BD and SP collection

As part of the event, you must find six starter Pokémon disguised as Gen 4. Finding them all before the event ends will increase your medal progress in the ongoing Collection Challenge.

The BD&SP Collection Challenge allows you to catch:

  • Turtwig with Lucas’s Hat: Wild Encounter (Part 1) or Field Investigation (Part 2)
  • Chimchar with Luca’s Hat – Wild Encounter (Part 1) or Field Research (Part 2)
  • Piplup with Luca’s Hat: Wild Encounter (Part 1) or Field Research (Part 2)
  • Turtwig with Dawn’s Hat: Wild Encounter (Part 2) or Field Research (Part 1)
  • Chimchar with Dawn’s Hat: Wild Encounter (Part 2) or Field Research (Part 1)
  • Piplup with Dawn’s Hat: Wild Encounter (Part 2) or Field Research (Part 1)

Once you’ve collected the above, not only will your Collection Challenge medal total increase by one, but you’ll also receive 1,000 XP, 3,000 Stardust, and an encounter with Frosslass.

In short, both sets of hat Pokémon are available at all times, but they have different methods in each part of the event. So if you want to collect them all in Part 1, you can find Lucas’ hat in the wild and Dawn’s hat in field research, and vice versa in Part 2.

This means you can complete the Collection Challenge right away by searching for field research, or if you prefer to only find them in the wild, then it means waiting until the change to Part 2 spawns activates.

Finally, if you’re looking for an extra challenge, all of the costumed Pokémon mentioned above can shine if luck is on your side!

BD and SP Field Research Tasks in Pokémon Go

To help you complete the Collection Challenge faster, the other Party’s Hat Pokémon will appear in event-specific Field Research rewards.

As with previous events, these research tasks will only appear during the event period, but can be completed after the event ends if you keep them.

These are the BD&SP field research tasks:

  • Catch 2 Chimchar Reward: Dawn’s Hat Chimchar (during Part 1), Daffy’s Hat Chimchar (during Part 2)
  • Catch 2 Piplup Reward: Piplup from Dawn’s Hat (during Part 1), Piplup from Daffy’s Hat (during Part 2)
  • Catch 2 Turtwig Reward: Dawn’s hat, Turtwig (during Part 1), Lucas’s hat, Turtwig (during Part 2)
  • Exchange a Pokémon reward – Burmy
  • Earn a raid reward – Bagon
  • Earn a Tier 3 or higher raid reward: Shieldon
