Pokemon GO: Team GO Rocket brings Shiny Ekans and Koffing

The arrival of Team GO Rocket in Pokemon GO has brought disruption to the world!

As a result, a new set of Special Research Tasks has been given to us by Professor Willow to investigate this mystery and rescue Shadow Pokémon.

However, Niantic are not done surprising us — from July 25 (10 p.m. local time) to August 1 (10 p.m. local time) you can capture Koffing and Ekans in their shiny forms. Other bonuses are also available:

  • Pokémon that appear in Raid Battles will be specific to Team GO Rocket.

Finally, Zubat and Weavile are able to be found in their shiny forms!
