Phase Two of the Season of Mischief has begun, and Trainers all around the world are ready to take on some new challenges. Among them, a new Collection Challenge has appeared, alongside an opportunity to capture the mythical Hoopa itself. Here’s what the Hoopa’s Arrival Collection Challenge consists of.

The Season of Mischief is a season-long event centered around Hoopa, a Mythical Pokemon that made its debut in Pokemon X and Y, invading the world of Pokemon GO and causing mayhem. This Pokemon prankster has single handedly altered the appearance of Pokemon in the wild, causing affected monsters to appear in areas where they don’t usually appear all around the world.
