Looming in the Shadows Special Research Guide

Trainers, a new Special Research called ‘Looming in the Shadows’ is live and there are six-stages of tasks that one must complete and eventually battle and defeat the Team Go Rocket Leader Giovanni.

The Looming in the Shadows Special Research is six-stage research and completing the given tasks will grant you cool rewards. The tasks are quite interesting and it will take longer than we expected to complete the Special Research.

NOTE: You have to complete the four-stage ‘A Troubling Situation’ Research to unlock the ‘Looming in the Shadows’ Special Research.

NOTE: Trainers can receive Giovanni Special Research once per calendar month. For example, if you complete your September Giovanni Special Research in mid-October, you’ll receive new Special Research shortly after. If you complete the September Research in mid-September, you’ll need to wait until midnight on October 1st (local time) to receive the Research again. 

HEADS UP Giovanni will use Legendary Shadow Pokemon to defeat you!
