Field Research event tasks
There were several Field Research tasks exclusively for the duration of the event.
To complete the Collection Challenge, Trainer must catch all of the following Pokémon during the event.
Many players had expressed the difficulties of finding Shadow Pokémon required to complete the Collection Challenge, especially Snover. Team GO Rocket Grunts appeared randomly and Ice-type Grunts were relatively rare. Even if one encountered an Ice-type Grunt, the chance of catching Cloyster was higher than Snover.
