Pokemon Go Team Go Rocket From The Shadows Special Research Quest Storyline

Update: Trainers, we now have the complete Special Research quest, so feel free to check it out here.

Previous Story: Trainers, the Team Go Rocket takeover event is right around the corner, and thanks to the best miners, we now have the Team Go Rocket Special Research quest storyline.

The Pokemon Go Team Go Rocket takeover event is a new, upcoming limited-time event featuring new Shadow Pokemon, new Shiny Shadow Pokemon, event bonuses, a 12k Egg pool, and a new Special Research story. The event looks promising, so you might want to save the dates to get yourself a new Shiny Shadow Pokemon.

The Special Research story Rocket 14 From the Shadows (that’s the name of the Research according to the text discovered in the GM file), has five stages, different tasks, and great rewards. The Special Research From the Shadows is a Season-long Research, and you can claim it until June 1, 2023, at 10 am local time.

That said, let’s take a look at the quest storyline below. Please remember that the event starts on March 25, 2023, at 10 AM local time, meaning we will have the complete list of tasks and rewards then.

From the Shadows Research Storyline

Trainer, perfect timing.

I was just settling in to read the latest edition of Pokémon Researcher’s Weekly when I saw a couple of Team GO Rocket Grunts run by.

We should go after them before they get up to anything too dastardly.

*sigh* It looks like my reading will have to wait. I’ll head this way, and you go that way!

Phew! That was a bit of a workout, eh, %PLAYERNAME%?

But I’ll bet you took on that Grunt without breaking a sweat!

And, as usual, I’ll bet they abandoned some poor Pokémon in their wake…

How sad. The least we can do is purify some of these Pokémon.

They’ll have a much happier future with you, %PLAYERNAME%.

Thanks for purifying those Pokémon!

They’re looking so cheerful – I’m sure they see you as their hero!

I know I do, but we can’t rest just yet. We need to stop Team GO Rocket at their source – the Leaders.

Let’s get cracking on tracking down those nefarious nuisances!

Welcome back, %PLAYERNAME%!

You made short work of those Team GO Rocket Leaders.

That’s no easy feat. Well, maybe it is for someone like you!

If only they could change their ways permanently… But until they do, we’ll be around to prevent them from doing anything too troublesome.

And that means showing their boss who’s boss.

Challenge the Team GO Rocket Boss Giovanni, %PLAYERNAME%!

Back so soon, %PLAYERNAME%? You’re really not giving Team GO Rocket any time to rest!

And that’s just the way it should be – all in the name of keeping Pokémon everywhere safe.

Thanks for your help, %PLAYERNAME%. Until the next time, we need to foil their plans!

The From the Shadows Special Research is free, so you don’t need to get a ticket to access it.
