Trainers, the 5/6 stage of the Looming in the Shadows Special Research is about finding, battling and defeating the Team Go Rocket Boss Giovanni. Just like the Team Go Rocket Leaders, Giovanni’s Pokemon lineup is very strong and we must use the strongest Pokemon to beat him and eventually catch Shadow Articuno and claim 6/6 stage of the Special Research.
Team Go Rocket Giovanni is available to battle in Pokemon Go, but only for players who will reach stage 5/6 of the Special Research Looming in the Shadows.
Giovanni uses three different sets of Pokemon, just like the TGR Leaders, and trust me, his Pokemon are not easy to beat.
