Pokemon GO Update Includes New Villain And Legendary Shadow Pokemon (VIDEO)
The latest Pokemon GO update will include Team Rocket leader, Giovanni, and other encounters with his top officers. On top of that, we can also expect legendary shadow Pokemon to join appear in the still-thriving mobile game.
Fans have been asking for Team Rocket leaders since Pokemon GO added Team Rocket grunts to the game. Rocket Radars will lead users to Team Rock Captains Arlo, Cliff, Sierra, and finally the head honcho, Giovanni. Defeating Team Rocket leaders can bring rewards such as rare Unova stones. However, to reach Giovanni, users will need to complete the new special research. Check out the video below:
Defeating Giovanni will give fans a leg up when it comes to completing their Pokedex, as victory against Giovanni will give users a chance to catch a shadow legendary Pokemon. Right now the only shadow legendary is Articuno, but there are more expected to come in smaller updates before 2020. We suspect they will be the other legendary birds from gen 1, Zapdos and Moltres.
This Team Rocket update is likely to be the last substantial game-changing update of 2019. Besides the Pokemon GO Christmas event coming up next month, users should be working hard to complete the Looming Shadows special research quest. More large updates can be expected for early 2020 but what exactly they will be is still unclear.
Pokemon GO is available for iOS and Android devices.
