Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go announced the next event in the game. This is a perfect event to catch Shadow Regirock and Shiny Pancham, so feel free to learn more below.
The Team Go Rocket Takeover event runs from June 21 to June 25, 2023. Team Go Rocket Grunts and the Team Go Rocket Leaders will be using different Shadow Pokemon lineups.
