Pokémon GO Fest 2020 Day 2 Guide

GO Fest 2020 Day 2 is upon us and we’ve prepared a comprehensive overview of what to expect today. The second day of GO Fest is themed around Team GO Rocket and their plan to takeover the world of Pokémon GO.

Completing the Team GO Rocket special research will unlock encounters with Shadow Mewtwo and Victini.

Team GO Rocket takeover

Grunts have taken over all the PokéStops! The Grunts use weaker Pokémon than usual, but their lineups haven’t been changed significantly. The Grunts also refresh, which means you can encounter Grunts at the same PokéStop multiple times.

Rocket Leaders

Team GO Rocket Leaders are using their old lineups again and they have a fixed lineup throughout all encounters:

Shadow Mewtwo and Victini
