Pokémon Go developer Niantic actively blocks “pokemon go locator” and “map radar” apps from getting its pokemon location map spawn data to find Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

Pokémon Go’s Team GO Rocket is back with more Special Research and another chance to challenge Giovanni. Beginning on February 28, 2021, Trainers can begin The Higher They Fly, a six step Special Research which rewards players with a Super Rocket Radar to track down and beat the head of Team GO Rocket. Be sure to check out our guide for beating the leaders of Team GO Rocket, as well as our best Pokémon Go accessories so you’re fully equipped for the battles ahead!

What is Team GO Rocket anyway?

Based on the original antagonists of Pokémon, Team Rocket is an infamous criminal organization led by Giovanni. The group seeks to steal valuable Pokémon and force those Pokémon to further Giovanni’s endeavors. In Pokémon Go, the group is much of the same, known as Team GO Rocket. Basically, they’re the bad guys who’ve been missing from the game since day one.

VPN Deals: Lifetime license for $16, monthly plans at $1 & more

Roughly once a month, you can complete a Special Research to take on their leader, Giovanni and potentially rescue a Legendary Shadow Pokémon from him. While these Special Research lines don’t expire, you can only complete one a month, even if you haven’t completed past months, so make sure to complete one every month so you don’t miss out on a chance at another Shadow Legendary Pokémon.

Can I start right away?

Probably but, unlike some other Special Research, players must complete specific Special Research lines to begin The Shadowy Threat Grows. If you haven’t completed A Troubling Situation and a previously started Team GO Rocket Special Research line, you’ll have to finish that first. Fortunately, A Troubling Situation is pretty quick, and we have a guide that will walk you through it fast. Looming in the Shadows, A Challenging Development, The Take-Over Continues, and A Professor’s Work is Never Done take longer – one month each, to be exact.

You must also be at least Level eight to begin this Special Research.

The Higher They Fly

Once you’ve completed the previous Team GO Rocket Special Research lines, you will find The Higher They Fly in your list of Special Research quests. This Special Research is split up into six steps of three tasks each.

Step One

  1. Win a Raid for 15 PokéBalls.
  2. Defeat three Team GO Rocket Grunts for three Hyper Potions.
  3. Catch one Shadow Pokémon for three Revives.

Completion Rewards: ten Razz Berries, ten Nanab Berries, ten Pinap Berries.

Step Two

  1. Catch five Shadow Pokémon for a Sun Stone.
  2. Make three Nice Curveball Throws in a row for 15 Great Balls.
  3. Catch ten Flying type Pokémon for a Doduo* encounter.

Completion rewards: 10 Mega Pidgeot Energy, 1,500 XP, 500 Stardust.

Step Three

  1. Purify five Shadow Pokémon for 30 Mega Pidgeot Energy.
  2. Defeat five Team GO Rocket Grunts for 30 Mega Pidgeot Energy.
  3. Earn three Candies walk with your Buddy Pokémon for 30 Mega Pidgeot Energy.

Completion rewards: Rocket Radar, Pidgeot encounter, 2,000 XP.

Step Four

  1. Defeat Team Go Rocket Leader Arlo for 1,250 XP.
  2. Defeat Team Go Rocket Leader Cliff for 1,250 XP.
  3. Defeat Team Go Rocket Leader Sierra for 1,250 XP.

Completion rewards: Super Rocket Radar, 2,500 XP, 1,000 Stardust.

Step Five

  1. Find the Team Go Rocket Boss for five Max Potions.
  2. Battle the Team Go Rocket Boss for 20 Ultra Balls.
  3. Defeat the Team Go Rocket Boss for five Max Revives.

Completion rewards: Fast TM, Charged TM, 3,000 XP.

  2. Autocompleted for 2,000 XP.
  3. Autocompleted for 2,000 XP.

Niantic announced the upcoming events for March 2021 in Pokemon GO, including an event featuring the debut of the Therian Forms of Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus.

The first big event is the Searching for Legends event from March 9 to 14, which involves Legendary Pokemon and Nosepass as well as the debut of Shiny Nosepass.

Then on March 14, Niantic will hold an event where psychic- and steel-type Pokemon, including Beldum, will be attracted to Incense.

After that comes an event from March 16 to 22 called “Charge Up!,” where new electric-type Pokemon will make their debut in Pokemon GO. From our guess, the new Pokemon might be Tynamo, Helioptile and/or Dedenne as well as their respective evolutions as they’re not currently in the game according to Serebii.

Then we get Weather Week from March 24 to 29, which involves weather-themed Pokemon including the Therian Forms of Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus. Those Pokemon are already in the game, but this event will see the debut of their Therian Forms.

Rounding the end of the month off is a special Raid Weekend from March 27 to 28.

Starting February 28 at 12:00 a.m. local time, players can play through Team GO Rocket Special Research and take down Giovanni for a shadow Legendary Pokemon. Giovanni will use a Shadow Articuno in March 2021, a Shadow Zapdos in April 2021 and a Shadow Moltres in May 2021.

These events join the previously announced March Community Day on March 6 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time which features Fletchling. If you evolve the Pokemon into Talonflame during the event and up to two hours after the end of the event, then it’ll learn the exclusive move Incinerate. Players also get three times the Catch XP during the event.

Niantic also announced the bonuses for the Spotlight Hours happening every Tuesday in March at 6:00 p.m. local time:

Tuesday, March 2, 2021: Krabby will be in the spotlight, and you’ll earn twice the Candy for transferring Pokémon.
Tuesday, March 9, 2021: Drowzee will be in the spotlight, and you’ll earn twice the XP for evolving Pokémon.
Tuesday, March 16, 2021: Voltorb will be in the spotlight, and you’ll earn twice the Stardust for catching Pokémon.
Tuesday, March 23, 2021: Surskit will be in the spotlight, and you’ll earn twice the XP for catching Pokémon.
Tuesday, March 30, 2021: Slugma will be in the spotlight, and you’ll earn twice the Candy for catching Pokémon.

Niantic is also testing Bonus Hours on select Thursdays in March at 6:00 p.m. local time. On March 4, Team GO Rocket balloons will appear more frequently. On March 11, players earn more Candy when catching Pokemon that are of the same type as their active Mega-evolved Pokemon. Then on March 18, Mega Raids will be more common.

During March, players will get a Gible as a reward for Research Breakthroughs. That’s the bonus you get when you complete seven different Field Research Tasks on seven different days.

In other news, Niantic’s PR team told Heavy via email that last weekend’s Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto event saw millions of players from 121 countries and territories participating. Players collectively caught 672 million Pokemon and traded 7.2 million of them, breaking the single-day record for the highest ever usage of the Trading feature. Each player walked an average of 8.8 kilometers. 53.7 percent of players chose the Red version of the ticket over the Green version.

Tips for completing the Evolve Collection Challenge in Pokémon Go

Here are some tips which will help you complete the Evolve Collection Challenge for Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto:

  • You have until Sunday, 28th February at 7:59pm (local time) to complete this Collection Challenge.
  • Remember – you need both the previous evolution for the Pokémon on the Collection Challenge list and the amount of candy required for the evolving process itself.
  • Don’t forget to check your Pokémon Storage first to see if you have any of the stage one or two Pokémon required for this Collection Challenge. You might even have the right amount of candy saved already!
  • When catching Pokémon for this challenge, remember to use Pinap berries to double the amount of catch candy you’ll receive.
  • Giving a Rare Candy to a Pokémon will allow you to earn more of their specific candy.
  • Don’t forget to use Incense to attract Pokémon to your location!
  • You can also attract Pokémon to specific PokéStops by placing a Lure Module within that spot. There are also three special Lure Modules – Glacial, Magnetic and Mossy – which attract very specific types of Pokémon.
  • To save PokéBalls, target Pokémon with a low CP level, especially if you’re playing on immediately transferring them for extra candy.
  • Keep an eye on the Pokémon radar in the bottom right-hand corner to see which Pokémon are in your nearby area.

The Season of Legends is nearly here! With it comes a level cap increase – including the addition of XL Candy, the Legacy 40 Challenge quest and boosts to some XP sourcesPlatinum Medals, the arrival of Gen 6 Pokémon such as Espurr and changes to the Go Battle League We’ve recently seen the addition of ‘Strange’ red eggs and new Arlo, Cliff, Sierra and Giovanni line-ups.

How the Evolve Collection Challenge works in Pokémon Go

Collection Challenges in Pokémon Go were released in January 2021 and run alongside certain in-game events. Each Collection Challenge will see you catching a number of Pokémon that, thanks to the event, are either appearing more frequently in the wild or are obtained by completing a certain feature of the game – in this case, evolution.

Once you’ve completed the Collection Challenge by catching or obtaining each Pokémon, you’ll be rewarded with a number of items and progress for your Elite Collector medal.

The Evolve Collection Challenge is part of the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto event and is available for a week after the event to ensure you have enough time to complete it. This means it will be available from Saturday, 20th February at 9am (local time) to Sunday, 28th February at 7:59pm (local time).

Collection Challenges can be found on the ‘Today View,’ which is accessed by pressing the field research button (the little binoculars) in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Depending on whether you’ve been looking at your current field or special research tasks, you may have to scroll to your left.

After accessing ‘Today View,’ you’ll find a list of the Pokémon you need to catch to complete the Collection Challenge. Catching a Pokémon in the Collection Challenge rooster will tick it off the list to help you keep track of which Pokémon you still need to obtain.

When you obtain a Pokémon it will be ticked off your Collection Challenge list.

It’s important to note that only Pokémon obtained via evolution will count towards this Collection Challenge; meaning any Pokémon caught in the wild, via raids, traded, Shadow Pokémon or ones hatched from eggs will all be exempt.

Remember – the Evolve Collection Challenge must be completed before 7:59pm (local time) on Sunday, 28th February or else you’ll never be able to add it to your Elite Collector medal.

Good luck completing this Collection Challenge!

Pokemon GO

Pikachu! Have you heard of it? Arguably one of them most famous mascots in the world, Pikachu has been a major part of Pokemon GO since the beginning, the first creature to show off different fashions, the first featured Pokemon on Community Day, and one of only three Pokemon to have a dedicated medal. And, just in case you haven’t had enough Pikachu, it’s got a spotlight hour today, February 23.

To start with: Pikachu spotlight hour takes place on February 23, 2021, from 6:00-7:00 PM local time. During that time you’ll see a whole bunch of Pikachu around. I haven’t seen any word on hats or anything, so I’m going to guess this are all just normal ones.

Typically I spend some time here talking about what’s weird or unique about the spotlight Pokemon, but everyone has a basic familiarity with Pikachu. It wasn’t really the flagship Pokemon until the anime, however, after which it became the starter for Pokemon Yellow. A story I like about it: designer Koji Noshino loved it so much that he made it difficult to find in the original games, hiding it away in the Power Plant area. It didn’t work, however, and the awesome power of Pikachu’s cuteness was unleashed upon the world shortly after release. The rarity only made trainers want it more.

Where shiny is concerned, you’re looking for a very slight shift. A shiny Pikachu is jsut sort of a deeper yellow color, and it could easily be missed if it weren’t for the visual flourish that accompanies its arrival.


The bonus isn’t all that exciting: double catch candy, which will only be so useful considering you’ll mostly be catching Pikachu, which despite it’s cuteness isn’t all that meta relevant. It will, however, be useful towards finishing that Pikachu Fan medal, which is going to take a long time to Platinum.
