While playing Pokemon GO, I've seen lots of Trainers who do their own sorts of collections... 100% IVs is a very popular one (and for good reason, as a lot of them are useful), Shinies is of course another one. But I've heard of several other cases, such as: 0% IVs, 26.6% IVs (4/4/4, lowest possible weather boosted encounter), 66.6% IVs (10/10/10, lowest you can get from Eggs/Raids/Research), Level 1s, 100 CP, 2018 CP and much much more.

So, do you have such a collection as well? How big is it? Why is important to you?

As for me, other than my 100s and Shinies I also hold on to:
  • 66.6% IVs on Pokemon obtained through Eggs/Raids/Research alone, because they're as rare as 100s. I've got three Legendaries, Kyogre/Shiny Lugia/Latias, and two non-legendaries, Taillow/Scyther.
  • Very few rare Level 1s, mostly because of peer pressure and as some friends have asked me to trade them away if trades ever become available. Shiny Draco Meteor Dragonite, Shiny Dragon Pulse Ampharos, Snorlax, Beldum
I would also hold on to 0%s, if I had any.

Oh, speaking of 0%s, I also got a Shellder during the Water Festival. Forgot posting about that one :)

Not really. 100's and shinies seem like something that would obviously be kept to me. Do still have my only 0 a Kabuto. Cant even say I keep everything over 90% anymore as I got rid of some for bag space(when you have 4 96% Wailmers do u need a bunch of 91's?)

New collections I've started are CP666 (which currently consists of a Nosepass, Shellder and Slakoth) and, of course, Luckies.

When I went to visit my partner across the country for the first time, I caught my very first Chansey! It's stats are horrid, but it was my first Blissey ever and it reminds me of my partner, so I'll always hang onto it.

I have each and every Melton I caught which transformed into Ditto, and all of them are nicknamed Nutty, Nutty II, Nutty III and so on in the order they were captured.

I had a Bellspout which was the first Pokemon I caught with by now-best friend at the place where I first met him. I chose to evolve that bellsprout with horrid CP (think 20-70 range) over a much better one to signify the growth of our friendship since that time, when I gained enough candy for evolution recently (Bellsprout are really rare here).

That Weepinbell is NEVER getting released. It’s capture is one of the first moments which led to the development of a friendship I cherish above all.

Not sure if this counts, but am I the only person who likes to hold on to gifts, rather than send them, if they're for special locations?

The most recent additionsto my 98% collection are an Octillery and a Kirlia. Unfortunately the Kirlia is female, so I can't evolve it into Gallade.
