This section’s challenge is to find Giovanni himself, the initial encounters can be just grunts. Some suggestions to accelerate this part of the research is changing locations and preferably going to a place with several Pokéstops to find the Team GO Rocket boss. Other idea is to go to social media to find groups that post Giovanni’s location.
