Are you in the Poké spirit? Pokemon GO Fest 2020 Day 2 starts at 10 AM today and runs until 8 PM tonight (your time). Day 2 is themed around Team Rocket and their elaborate plan to take over the world of Pokémon GO.  

Pokemon GO Fest 2020 Day 2: Guide, Details & Rewards

Succeeding in the Team GO Rocket special research will unlock encounters with Victini and Shadow Mewtwo!


One thing to note: only players who bought the Pokémon Go Fest Ticket for $14.99 will be able to participate in the Special Research. Once you log on during the event period and start the research, you will have an infinite amount of time to finish it. It will not expire when Go Fest ends, so please don’t panic if you aren’t finished at the end of the day.

Team Rocket Takeover

Grunts have overrun all the PokéStops! They use weaker Pokémon than usual, but their lineups haven’t had significant changes. The Grunts also refresh, which means you can encounter Grunts at the same PokéStop multiple times.

Rocket Leaders

Team GO Rocket Leaders are using their old lineups again. Yes, again. But, they have a pre-determined lineup for all encounters.

  • Arlo – Mawile, Scizor & Moltres. 
  • Sierra – Beldum, Houndoom & Zapdos.
  • Cliff – Pinsir, Tyranitar & Articuno.
  • Giovanni – Persian, Sandslash & Mewtwo.
