Pokemon Go -- Hoenn Throwback Challenge Tasks Revealed

Pokemon Go's newest Throwback Challenge is about to start, with new tasks to complete and a chance to capture another Legendary Pokemon. Pokemon Go has started the rollout of its Hoenn Throwback Challenge, a new weekly challenge that pays homage to Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire.
