Tips for completing the quest "A tricky situation"

  • Most of the tasks involve fighting Team GO Rocket Recruits. Although they invade random Pok√©Stops, you can find them even from a distance! Just look for darker than normal squares that are shaking instead of standing still:
The cube marked in the image is darker than the others and also vibrates subtly, indicating that Team GO Rocket has invaded the location.
  • Team GO Rocket only stays in the same location for about 30 minutes. Try to communicate with friends who play to locate villains more easily.
  • Don't forget to heal or revive your Pokemon after clashes with Team GO Rocket. Unlike Trainer battles or against friends, your creatures take real damage when fighting villains.
  • O Rocket Radar is obtained when you gather 6 Mysterious Components. He is able to locate Team GO Rocket hideouts in his vicinity. Only players who have the radar will be able to fight the Team Leaders. Other players who are in the same location at the same time will only encounter Recruits.
  • O Super Rocket Radar is the item you need to find Giovanni, the great Boss of Team Go Rocket. Upon defeating it, you will have a chance to catch a Legendary Shadow Pok√©mon.
