Part of every Pokémon journey involves facing some form of a trial along the way to grow stronger—and the Pokémon Go Tour: Johto event is no different. 

As part of the event, Niantic has recreated the Johto region’s Gym Challenge and turned it into the Go Tour: Johto Battle Challenge using actual players as the model for the new NPC trainers. 

This portion of the event was crafted through a social media competition where players would send Niantic an image of their player avatar and Pokémon as if they were fitting the theme for one of the Johto region’s Gym Leader types. The winners were added to the game as NPCs and now players around the world will need to beat them to finish their journey. 

So as you build your team and set out on your journey, here are all of the tasks and rewards you’ll encounter along the Go Tour: Johto Battle Challenge, along with the bonus Raikou, Entei, and Suicune Photo Safari.
