Team Rocket invaded Pokémon GO
After a strategic withdrawal about 24 hours ago, Team Rocket attacked the world of Pokémon GO en masse.
All official Pokémon GO channels reported the Team Rocket attack, giving the official start to a new event. In this new event Team Rocket has taken over the PokéStops and has the Shadow Pokémon in their possession.
Your task as a player is to free the PokéStops and save the Shadow Pokémon. The mission is divided into four stages:
- Find Team GO Rocket – You can find them in the discolored PokéStops;
- Fight Team GO Rocket – When you find a Team Rocket Grunt, you’ll be challenged to a Pokémon battle!
- Capture the Shadow Pokémon – After a successful battle, you can capture the Shadow Pokémon that was abandoned by Team GO Rocket;
- Purify the Shadow Pokémon – The purification process allows you to restore a Shadow Pokémon to its normal state and allow it to become stronger due to the gratitude they feel for the trainer who saved them.
