The Greedy Gluttons event for Pokémon GO is all set to start tomorrow, November 9 at 10:00 a.m., local time. Once it goes live, be ready to meet some of the heavy and hungry hitters by the likes of Lickitung, Snorlax, and Mega Gyarados, to name a few.

Team GO Rocket Takeover

As the Greedy Gluttons event winds down, Team GO Rocket makes their move, starting November 14 until November 17.

In this one, everyone is shown that the greed and ambition of Giovanni really has no limits. His machinations now involve Shadow Mewtwo. At the start of the event, trainers get access to a new Special Research story, and those able to progress will get a Super Rocket Radar, and even chase down Giovanni.

The Special Research can be claimed until the end of the Season of Light, which is on December 1.

During the event, the Team GO Rocket Grunts, along with leaders Sierra, Cliff, and Arlo, are going to be using different Shadow Pokémon. Be sure to help Spark, Blanche, and Candela overcome their opponents and rescue the Shadow Pokémon.

In addition, Team GO Rocket has also managed to turn these Pokémon into Shadow Pokémon. Defeat Team GO Rocket Grunts and save them:

  • Shadow Alolan Diglett
  • Shadow Onix
  • Shadow Natu
  • Shadow Wailmer
  • Shadow Golett
