All TCG Crossover: Kanto Collection Pokémon

The Pokémon featured in the Kanto Collection will be appearing in the wild, and some of them will be found in raids. The best way to find them is to explore your local area. The TCG Crossover event is happening from June 16 to 30.

These are all the Pokémon you need to catch and the rewards you will receive.

  • Catch an Ivysaur
  • Catch a Charmeleon
  • Catch a Wartortle
  • Catch a Venusaur
  • Catch a Charizard
  • Catch a Blastoise

Rewards: 10,000 XP and an incubator

Pokémon to catch

The first three Pokémon, Ivysaur, Charmeleon, and Wartortle, will be appearing in the wild. You can find them by walking around your neighborhood, adding incense to your character to bring them to your location, or you can place a lure module on a PokéStop and wait for them to find you.

The final three, Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise, won’t be appearing in standard raids or in the wild. Instead, the only way to catch them is to battle and win against them in the Mega Raids, which feature the Mega versions of these Pokémon. Mega Blastoise, Mega Charizard, and Mega Venusaur will be appearing throughout the event, or in the Field Research task, Catch 25 Pokémon. You and a friend need to work together to complete a Mega raid and catch these Pokémon.

Although at first glance, the Kanto Collection Challenge looks easy, the final three Pokémon will be difficult to catch. Mega raids are some of the more difficult content for many players to complete, and we recommend you construct a team to use in each battle.
