How the Desert Mountain Collection challenge works in Pokémon Go
Collection challenges in Pokémon Go, which first launched in January 2021, run in conjunction with certain in-game events. Each collection challenge tasks you with finding a specific number of Pokémon through a variety of means.
Once you have completed the Collection, you will be rewarded with a number of items and progress towards your Elite Collector medal.
The Desert Mountain Collection Challenge is part of Go Fest 2021 and will be available until Sunday, July 18 at 6 pm (local time).
Collection challenges are found in ‘Today’s View’, accessed by pressing the field research button (the little binoculars) in the bottom right corner of the screen.
After accessing the “Today View”, you will find the list of Pokémon needed for the collection challenge. Once you’ve found one of these Pokémon, it will be marked on the Collection Challenge rooster, helping you keep track of which ones you’ve caught and which ones you haven’t.
Pokémon will be removed from the collection challenge list as you catch them.
Remember: the collection challenge must be completed before the associated event ends and disappears forever.
Have fun during Go Fest 2021!
