Team Rocket is at it again in Pokémon Go, and they’re causing problems all around the world, attempting to use their shadow Pokémon to run more experiments. A new special research is available where trainers need to undergo several different tasks related to battling and taking down Team Rocket members in Pokémon Go, eventually working their way up to defeating Giovanni and rescuing Mewtwo. Previously, Shadow Mewtwo had only been available to trainers who captured it during Pokémon Go Fest 2020, but now the special research makes it so everyone can take part in the adventure and capture it.

You need to complete all tasks associated with the research to battle Giovanni and rescue Shadow Mewtwo at the end. The special research is also a way to introduce the new red eggs, which you acquire by battling and defeating Team Rocket leaders.
