Some rare Pokémon that first appeared in Pokémon Red and Green are waiting to be discovered in the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto event.

This event is an early celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Pokémon franchise, which is officially on Feb. 27. Players can participate in this one-day Kanto extravaganza on Feb. 20 from 9am to 9pm local time to encounter Pokémon, trainers, and location-based events from the first generation of the series.

Numerous Collection Challenges will be available for players who purchased the event’s ticket, including some centered around various locations in the Kanto region. Pokémon from these locations can be encountered on a rotating hourly basis.

Other Collection Challenges require players to hunt for some of the strongest and most elusive Pokémon from Kanto, whether they’re found in the wild or through Raids. Every Collection Challenge completed will also provide players with a new epithet on their Elite Collector medal.

Here’s a list of all of the Pokémon needed to complete the Research portion of the Collection Challenges during the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto event, as well as the rewards that players can obtain for successfully catching them all. Be sure to stay on the lookout for these powerful creatures since you only have until 9pm local time to complete this challenge.

Correction Feb. 20 9:34am CT: A previous version of this article said that some of the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto challenges were available for players who didn’t buy the event ticket. This is not the case. Players must purchase the event ticket for $11.99 to gain access to the Collection Challenges. We regret this error.
