Beginning October 12, 2020, Trainers have access to a new Special Research line focused on Team GO Rocket. The monthly Team GO Rocket Special Research lines were put on hold back in March due to the global pandemic, and though Niantic did introduce Team GO Rocket hot air balloons to help Trainers battle the villains of the Pokémon world from the safety of their homes, this is the first monthly Special Research since - and it's the last one for the year!

In addition to the introduction of Strange Eggs, An Inter-egg-sting Development is also running during an event in which Team GO Rocket activity is increased, eggs hatch in just 1/4 the usual distance, and Giovanni has captured Shadow Mewtwo once again. As a reminder, Shadow Mewtwo is the most powerful and versatile Pokémon in the whole game, so you won't want to miss your chance at catching it!
