Save Shadow Latios!
Giovanni doesn’t do anything halfway. After Trainers around the world saved Shadow Latias, the Team GO Rocket boss just had to get his hands on Shadow Latios—and now it needs your help! Get ready to face off against Giovanni and rescue Shadow Latios!
Some of the Shadow Pokémon listed here were found updated in a recent datamine. They are not all confirmed.
Team GO Rocket Grunts—as well as their leaders, Sierra, Cliff, and Arlo—are also using different Shadow Pokémon. Help Spark, Blanche, and Candela overcome their adversaries and rescue the Shadow Pokémon! If you’re lucky, you may encounter different Shiny Shadow Pokémon than normal, too!
In addition, Team GO Rocket has also turned the following Pokémon into Shadow Pokémon. Defeat Team GO Rocket Grunts to save them!
