Preparations are underway at Pokémon GO to celebrate Pokemon GO Fest 2020 in a big way. To make the celebration even more special, Niantic announced a series of weekly challenges and this week would be combat-focused. However, Team GO Rocket showed up to try to ruin the party, so there was an adjustment of plans and the Pokémon Trainers will have to stop them.

Thus, the new weekly combat challenge will take place from Friday, July 10 at 8:00 AM to Wednesday, July 15 at 10:00 PM (local time).

During these days, Team GO Rocket will carry out the invasion to the world of Pokémon GO, so they will appear more frequently not only in Poképaradas, but also on board hot air balloons in search of combat. As we mentioned, the Meowth balloon from Team Rocket will also appear. Likewise, there are reports that this evil organization is capturing the following species to turn them into shadow Pokémon, in addition to others that will only appear with the leaders Cliff, Sierra and Arlo.

One of the main novelties is that Suicune was turned into a dark Pokémon, so you can meet him by defeating Giovanni. If you don’t have a Rocket super radar to combat it, keep in mind that if you complete the weekly investigation you will be able to receive one.

In case you missed it: Pokémon GO’s 4th anniversary will be full of surprises.

The mission of all Pokémon Trainers will be to defeat Team GO Rocket

The Team GO Rocket activity will intensify on Sunday, July 12 from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM (local time). During this invasion period there will be more recruits in Poképaradas and in balloons, Team Rocket’s will appear more frequently as well. Trainers will receive double Stardust by defeating Team GO Rocket members and will be able to use a charged Attack MT to make Pokémon forget the frustration move and learn a new one.
