Team GO Rocket Leader and Giovanni Lineup

Starting November 9, 2021 - 12 a.m. local time

Giovanni & the 3 Leaders, Arlo, Cliff & Sierra have changed their Pokémon and therefore will now have 3 new Shadow Shiny Pokémon!

How to Challenge the leaders

To challenge one of the Leaders you have to defeat 6 Team GO Rocket Grunts and collect '6 Mysterious Components' to combine them into a Rocket Radar.

1 Radar allows you to defeat 1 Leader before it's consumed.

You will then get to encounter the first Pokémon of that leader, which can turn out to be a Shiny Shadow Pokémon!

Leader can be found at PokéStops or in Rocket Balloons.

How to Challenge Giovanni

To challenge Giovanni you need a Super Rocket Radar which is only available through

Special Research. (Currently: Misunderstood Mischief 15/16)

After defeating Giovanni you will encounter and have the chance to catch his third Pokémon which is a Shadow Legendary.

As of today, Shiny Shadow Legendary Pokémon are NOT available.
