Giovanni has returned to Pokémon GO. After a long absence, Team GO Rocket’s leader returns to the iOS and Android game with new partners in the form of Shadow Pokémon, specifically Kanto’s legendary birds. The Higher They Fly… is the last mission in the history of the Team Go Rocket invasion in Pokémon Go that began in July 2019 with A Troubled Situation.

The Higher They Fly Quests and Rewards

Before we begin this Season of Legends, it’s worth remembering that Giovanni’s main Pokémon will change over the next three months.

To locate Giovanni, we must complete six investigation phases, many of which will provide Mega Energy for Pidgeot, and beginning with the fourth phase, he will ask us to confront Arlo, Cliff, and Sierra, Giovanni’s 3 main leaders. It’ll be time to face him with his dark Articuno once we have the Super Radar Rocket.
