Pokemon Go Looming in the Shadows Research Tasks: A SuperParent Guide
Here's what these new tasks ask you to do.
Pokemon Go’s latest update allows players to challenge the three Team Go Rocket leaders (Cliff, Sierra, and Arlo) and even take on the boss of Team Go Rocket, Giovanni.
However, before players can challenge Giovanni, they’ll need to collect a new item called the Super Rocket Radar, which can be earned by completing a new series of Special Research tasks called “Looming in the Shadows.”
