Pokemon Go How to Find Team Go Rocket Boss Giovanni?

Trainers, Team Go Rocket Leaders and their Boss Giovanni are taking over the Pokemon Go world and we must stop them before it’s too late. We must find the TGR Leaders, defeat them and their Pokemon and eventually find and defeat Giovanni.

Team Go Rocket Boss Giovanni is hiding somewhere on the map, and there is a way to find him before he takes over the world and destroys everything good.

So, how to find Giovanni? Let’s take a look at what one must do:

  1. Battle Team Go Rocket Grunts
  2. Collect six Mysterious Components to build the Rocket Radar
  3. Use this Radar to battle TGR Leaders and their Pokemon
  4. Finish the Looming in the Shadows Special Research to receive the Super Rocket Radar
  5. Use the Super Rocket Radar to locate Giovanni
  6. Be careful, some Grunts may pretend to be Giovanni
  7. You will eventually find him and battle him..and again be careful, his team are the Legendary Shadow Birds
  8. Defeat Giovanni and rescue the Legendary Shadow Pokemon

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.

Good luck and let’s save the world from the evil Team Go Rocket Leaders and Giovanni!

Hey there, I'm Dejan! Let me take you through my life, where family, gaming, and CrossFit play prominent roles. Since day one, I've been surrounded by the love and support of my family. Growing up, every moment spent with my parents and siblings was filled with warmth and laughter, creating memories I hold dear. As a parent now, I've experienced a whole new level of love and responsibility. My two wonderful kids bring endless joy and a sense of purpose to my life. In the digital realm, I found my passion - gaming. Whether I'm conquering the world of Apex Legends or embarking on adventures in Pokemon Go, gaming fuels my sense of adventure and competition. Beyond the virtual world, I discovered the exhilaration of CrossFit. The challenging workouts, camaraderie with fellow fitness enthusiasts, and constant drive to push my limits have become an integral part of my life. Balancing family time, gaming, and CrossFit has been a journey of self-discovery. Each passion complements the other, bringing fulfillment and joy to my daily routine.


  1. I’m curious if you need to manually use the Super Rocket Radar in order to locate Giovanni or if it just happens as long as you have it equipped. Also, can Giovanni spawn from a balloon or does it have to be a physical Pokestop? Is there a level requirement to finding Giovanni? I am level 27 and on A Seven-Colored Shadow (5/6) requiring me to find, battle, and defeat the Team GO Rocket Boss. I have been on the quest and had a Super Rocket Radar for a couple weeks now and any time I use it, Candela tells me we scared them off (she once said something about being close and to check again in the morning). Just frustrating that I have no idea if I’m doing something wrong or not.
