List of Pokémon and Rewards for Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge in Pokémon Go Explained
Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge in Pokémon Go gives you the task of capturing twelve Pokémon across Gen 1, Gen 2, Gen 3 and Gen 5. It is the most difficult Collection Challenge we have seen so far, because many of the Pokémon can only be trapped after defeating them in a raid.
Here are the Pokémon you need to catch for Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge:
- Nidoran – Female (in nature)
- Nidoran – Man (in nature)
- Espeon (three star raid)
- Umbreon (three star raid)
- Plusle (in nature)
- Minum (in nature)
- Volbeat (in nature, one-star raid and field research assignments)
- Illumise (in nature, one-star raid and field research assignments)
- Luvdisc (in nature and 5 km eggs)
- Latias (five star raid)
- Latios (five star raid)
- Alomomola (three-star raid and field research missions)
Remember – these Pokémon must be captured for them to count in the Valentine’s Day collection challenge. This means that developing an Eevee for either Espeon or Umbreon will not count in the Collection Challenge.

Tips for completing the Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge in Pokémon Go
Here are some tips to help you catch up every day for Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge:
- Since the majority of Pokémon for the Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge can be found in the wild, it’s a good idea to use Incense to increase your chances of finding these creatures.
- You can also use a Lure Module to attract Pokémon to a specific PokéStops; use of magnetic lure increases your chances of encountering Minum or Plusle, while Mossy Lure will attract both poison and Pokémon of the bug type.
- There are a number of Pokémon that you can only capture by defeating them in raids, so if you have any extra Remote Raid Passes, this is the time to use them.
- To add both Latias and Latios to the Collection Challenge, you will build dedicated teams that will help you defeat them in raids. Try to avoid any of your Pokémon fainting during these raid battles, as this will reduce the amount of Premier Balls you receive.
- If you have trouble finding Luvdisc in the wild, try hatching some of the 5km of eggs you collect throughout the Valentine’s Day event.
- Throughout the Valentine’s Day event, there will be a series of field quests, which will reward you with some of the Pokémon from the Collection Challenge list. However, you may need to visit a number of PokéStops to find the research mission you need.

How Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge works in Pokémon Go
Collection Challenges in Pokémon Go was released in January 2021 and ran alongside certain events in the game. Each collection challenge will see you capture a number of Pokémon that, thanks to the event, appear more often in the wild.
Once you complete the Collection Challenge by capturing all of these, you will be rewarded with a variety of items and progress to the Elite Collector Medal.
The Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge runs alongside the Valentine’s Day event and will be available from Sunday 14 February at 13.00 (local time) to Thursday 18 February at 20.00 (local time).
Collection challenges can be found in ‘Today View’, which you can access by pressing the field research button (the small binoculars) at the bottom right of the screen. Depending on whether you have looked at your current field or special research assignments, you may need to scroll to the left.
After accessing ‘Today View’, you will find a list of Pokémon you need to complete the Collection Challenge. Catching a Pokémon in the Collection Challenge cock will check the list to keep track of which ones you have captured and which ones you have not.
It is important to note that the development of a Pokémon will not count towards the Collection Challenge, which means that you can not develop Eevee for either Espeon or Umbreon. Instead, you have to catch them.
Remember – Collection Challenge must be completed before the associated event ends and it disappears.
Good luck completing Valentine’s Day Collection Challenge!
