Pokémon GO Trainers, it’s time to update your strategy. Team GO Rocket has recently revised their Shadow Pokémon lineups. This change, crucial for players battling against these adversaries, brings new challenges to your gameplay. Thanks to the reports from the Pokémon GO community, we have compiled an updated list of every Shadow Pokémon now used by the Team GO Rocket Leaders. But that’s not all, the Rocket Grunts have also undergone some changes.
These adjustments add a fresh layer of strategy to encounters with these opponents. Notably, Sierra has made a significant move by placing Houndoom in her third slot. Muk, previously a staple in the Dark Grunt lineup, has been removed. This means that using a fighting-type Pokémon against these grunts is now a safer bet. This adjustment was a response to community feedback, reflecting the ongoing evolution of the game based on player experience.
These updates took place a few days ago and have since been fully integrated into the game. Understanding these changes is key for Trainers looking to optimize their battle strategies against Team GO Rocket. So, let’s dive into the details of the new Shadow Pokémon lineups and see what’s new for both the Leaders and the Grunts.
