Pewter City Hour in Pokemon GO hasn't released its hold on trainers since the Kanto Tour event.

Pewter City Hour first appeared in Niantic Labs' latest large-scale event, the Kanto Tour, during which trainers would encounter Pokemon commonly seen within the city. It followed suit with other similarly named hours, rotating on a schedule to allow trainers the best chance possible to complete their event objectives.

However, what trainers may be more concerned about is the lingering collection challenge.

Pewter City in Pokemon GO

The Pewter City Collection Challenge included several Kanto species made popular in and around the city limits—either by adventuring through the wild or facing local trainers and gym leaders. These were:

  • Onix
  • Nidoran (F)
  • Nidoran (M)
  • Geodude
  • Diglett
  • Voltorb
  • Clefairy
  • Paras
  • Magnemite
  • Rhyhorn

Fortunately, none of these are all that difficult to encounter. Aside from Onix, Paras, and occasionally Clefairy, trainers can easily find these Pokemon by visiting their habitats or adhering to their preferred weather.

Onix, Rhyhorn, Geodude, and Clefairy tend to appear in Partly Cloudy weather while Diglett appreciates Sunny days. Paras, Magnemite, and Voltorb favor rainy weather. Both Nidoran enjoy Cloudy weather.

Trainers can find poison, normal, and bug-types in lush, green areas like parks, fields, and forests. Electric-types tend to hang around locations with high levels of electricity such as bustling city centers and power plants. Rock and ground-types are more common around roads.

Rewards for completing this challenge include 151 Stardust, 20 Great Balls, an encounter with Paras, and another notch in the Elite Collector medal.
