Team Rocket is out and about this week in Pokémon Go. Previously, all in January, Pokémon Go has been celebrating the many regions in the game and the Pokémon inhabiting those locations. This is all leading up to the Kanto Tour event, set to kick off on February 20, and before we can have that, Team Rocket is having their celebration research event. There is a handful of new shadow Pokémon for trainers to capture, and many of the grunts and Team Rocket leaders have new Pokémon for trainers to battle.

The Team Rocket Celebration research task will be available to all players. It starts on February 2 at 10 AM and goes until February 7 at 8 PM in your local time zone.
