Pokémon Go Throwback Challenge Champion 2020 tasks, rewards and ticket price explained

‘Kickback Challenge Champion’ is the latest of the special Knockback Challenges research quest lines that have been running in Pokémon Go.

While previous Throwback Challenge missions were themed around a specific region of the Pokémon universe (Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh), ‘Throwback Challenge Champion’ focuses more on achieving great feats in Pokémon Go.

It also features a variety of Galarian Pokémon, such as Galarian Meowth, which, like the Alolan Pokémon before them, are forms of Pokémon specific to the Galar region.

The quest line will be divided into several steps, each of which contains three individual challenges that you must complete. You will be rewarded for each individual challenge and mission step you complete.

If you are unable to complete the “Recoil Challenge Champion” during the event period, you will still be able to finish the special research after Monday, June 8.
