Pokemon Go Hoenn Throwback Challenge 2020 Guide

The Hoenn Challenge in Pokemon Go starts from May 15 until the 22nd of this month. 

This following Throwback Challenge Hoenn guide contains all information on Hoenn themed raids & field research, including special 7 KM eggs, increased wild spawns, and the Special Research questline.

While doing this challenge, players will be able to catch Pokémon that reference the Gym Leaders which appeared in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald.

Like Kanto and Johto, the Hoenn Throwback Challenge won’t finish in an encounter with a new Pokémon.
