In Pokémon GO, the hunt for Rocket bosses and leader Giovanni has begun. Here you will find all information about the new special research "A long shadow".
This is the new special research: "A long shadow" brings the Rocket bosses into play. But Arlo, Sierra and Cliff are not alone: Even Rocket Boss Giovanni is now in the game. You can challenge him with the help of special research.
Even before, the bosses were available in selected cities. Now it is possible to challenge them worldwide.
Why can not I participate? Not all players have special research already available. The reason is that you have apparently completed the special research "A disturbing situation" to release "A long shadow". Several players on reddit confirm this.
This article will be updated as more information becomes available.
So you find the bosses and Giovanni
You have to do that: To reach Giovanni, you need to support Professor Willow in the new specialty research. There are several steps to be taken to finally find Giovanni.
Step 1: Open the special research "A long shadow".
Step 2: Challenge Team GO Rocket-Rüpel. These can lose "mysterious parts".
Step 3: Build Rocket radars. Six mysterious parts make a rocket radar. With this you can scan the environment to find the bosses.
Step 4: Fight the bosses. Arlo, Cliff and Sierra can be tracked down using the radar. Grab your strongest Pokémon, defeat the trio and save their Crypto Pokémon. The special feature: Only trainers with radar can open a hiding place – but if it is open for now, others can find it too.
Step 5: Complete the special research. Then you can get a Super Rocket Radar that will help you find Giovanni. However, some rogues may pretend to be Giovanni – so it will not be easy.
But once you've found Giovanni, you can even get him a legendary crypto-Pokémon. The announcement shows the Rocket leader with crypto versions of Arktos, Zapdos and Lavados.
