Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go announced the Team Go Rocket takeover event, and it looks like Shiny Shadow Pokemon encountered from Grunts can be shiny.

The Pokemon Go Team Go Rocket takeover event is set to go live from March 25 to March 29, 2023. During this period Pokemon Go players can encounter new Shadow Pokemon from Grunts, Arloc, Cliff, Sierra, and Giovanni, enjoy event exclusive bonuses, and access Special Research.

Now, when Niantic and Pokemon Go made the announcement about the Team Go Rocket takeover event, they said that players can encounter Shiny Shadow Pokemon from Grunts. It turns out that players can indeed encounter Shiny Shadow Pokemon from Grunts during the event, and this change will be permanent.

This means that every time you defeat a Team Go Rocket Grunt you have a chance to encounter a Shiny Shadow Pokemon. The shiny rates will be revealed when the event goes live, so until then stay with us and get the latest Pokemon Go news.
