There is a special investigation in Pokémon GO that brings players upside down. It’s called “Lurking in the Shadows” and it will take us to face the leaders of Team GO Rocket to locate their supreme leader, Giovanni . To access each leader previously we have to defeat 6 normal recruits of the organization. These are easy, but you will have to repeat this operation 3 times (a total of 18 recruits) to get the necessary mystery components.
Finally, when you defeat the three leaders, Pokémon GO will give you a special super radar that works like the previous ones. When you enable it, you can see Giovanni’s secret lairs , but the boss will only be waiting in one of them to fight. That is, even if you see Poképaradas marked Giovanni will not be in all and instead you will find recruits as a decoy. There is no way to know exactly where you are so as not to waste time, so be patient.
When you find it, the ultimate combat will begin. With which we will receive a legendary bird . In November it was Articuno, but he has rotated Zapdos and they will probably do the same with Moltres. This is important because Giovanni’s team also changes. So in this basic guide we show you all the possibilities and which Pokémon you have to use to defeat it. Of course, first you have to know that the first Pokémon will be a Persian in either case. As rewards you will receive 2,500 Stardust, 1,500 XP, and 3 Silver Pine Berries. The reward for this phase will be 3,000 Stardust, a Rapid Attack MT, and a Charged Attack MT.
