Where’s Giovanni for May 2022?

Find and Beat Giovanni Pokémon GO

Pokémon Go’s Season of Alola has ended, and we’re moving on to the Season of Go. We can expect more changes to come to the mobile game, with the arrival of Ultra Beasts, Pokémon Go Fest 2022, and many other events in the coming weeks. Team Rocket will be lurking in the shadows throughout these events, waiting to strike. Will Giovanni receive an update for June 2022 in Pokémon Go?

The chances of a Giovanni update happening in June 2022 is reasonably high. The first weekend of the month features Pokémon Go Fest 2022. Typically, during these events, Giovanni makes an appearance on the second day, giving players the chance to take him down and catch a legendary shadow Pokémon he has on his roster. So far, Niantic has shared no hint that Giovanni will involve himself with the event. However, he will likely be a surprise arrival during Pokémon Go Fest 2022.

If you miss out on Pokémon Go Fest this year, Giovanni will likely return some with the same shadow Pokémon during the Season of Go. Niantic usually gives Pokémon Go Fest participants the first chance to catch these particular Pokémon before opening them up to the public to attempt to catch. All players will have the chance to encounter this Pokémon later during future events, so don’t feel like you’re missing out by not purchasing a Pokémon Go Fest ticket.

Because there has been no official announcement, it’s possible Giovanni will not appear during Pokémon Go Fest. There’s always the chance this could happen, and we’ll have to wait for him to appear sometime later during the Season of Go. Regardless, it’s better to prepare for the chance of a new Shadow Pokémon to your roster.
