In May, developer Niantic introduced a series of throwback challenges celebrating Pokémon's first regions in Pokémon Go. There are four throwback challenges and the third revolves around the Hoenn region, which hails from Pokémon Ruby. and Sapphire. The Hoenn Throwback Challenge in 2020 takes place from May 14-21, and during this time you have the chance to catch Groudon, the legendary Ground-type Pokémon.
You can catch Groudon for a limited time during the event. To do this, all you need to do is complete the challenges offered by the Hoenn Throwback Challenge. These are available for a limited time and you can find them in the tasks of your research assignment. There are eight different sets of challenges consisting of three activities, each rewarding you for completing them.
By the end of these research tasks, you've guaranteed an encounter with Groudon, and if you catch the Pokémon, it should have a Fire Fist as a charge attack. The Fire Fist is a limited-time attack not generally found on Groudon.
Groudon is a pure Ground-type Pokémon that has a maximum CP of 4.115, an attack of 270, a defense of 228, and a stamina of 205. It is an incredibly powerful Pokémon to have in your lineup, and if you have the chance to catch it. During the Hoenn Throwback Challenge event, be sure to do it before the time runs out.
We will update this page in the future when research activities are released for this event.
