The Team Rocket invaded Pokémon GO , the augmented reality game for iPhone and Android Niantic. The result is the appearance of the new Dark Pokémon, the need to fight against these villains in the Poképaradas, the appearance of new variocolor (or shiny ) Pokémon and other changes for a limited time.
From this Thursday, July 25 at 10:00 p.m. Spanish peninsular time until August 1at the same time, there will be changes in the habitats of the Pokémon influenced by Team GO Rocket.
Thus, Ekans and Koffing variocolor will appear in the wild, in raids or when hatching eggs. These two Pokémon are common in Team Rocket, and in fact, they are Jesse and James’s first companions (along with Meowth) in the Pokémon animated series.
In the raids will also appear “Pokémon that have some relevance to Team GO Rocket”, according to the official blog , so we can expect other creatures that have been part of Team Rocket in games and anime.
In addition, during the mentioned days, these Pokémon will appear more frequently from the eggs : Rattata, Ekans, Sandshrew, Zubat, Meowth, Machop, Magnemite, Grimer, Gastly, Drowzee, Cubone, Koffing, Murkrow, Sneasel, Houndour and Poochyena. Again, regular Pokémon in Team Rocket.
From Niantic they are giving clues to a new creature or ret or that is coming to Pokémon GO on the occasion of the inclusion of Team Rocket.
In the blog they ask players to be “attentive to possible surprises . ” “We hope these are the last anomalies caused by Team GO Rocket …”
In addition, at the end of the video posted on the Pokémon GO YouTube channel about the event, a character whose name is hidden says: “I will unleash my machinations on Earth.” The only thing that is seen of this individual is a distorted silhouette reminiscent of that of Giovanni , the leader of Team Rocket.
Fights against Team Rocket, dark Pokémon and how to purify them
Pokémon GO players will see some dark blue Poképaradas almost black. When approaching, the Poképarada disc will be shown in black and a Team Rocket member will appear next to it. Turning the photo disk will give us less objects than usual, and to get them all we have to defeat the Team Rocket member .
We will have to choose three Pokémon to fight against the three of the adversary , who will all be dark Pokémon and we will be throwing each creature stronger than the previous one (for example, a Charmander, a Charmeleon and a Charizard finally).
When defeating it, it will leave a Dark Pokémon (usually the weakest of those we have fought) and we will have three Pokéballs to capture it. If we lose the match against Team Rocket, we can repeat it without problems.
When you capture the Dark Pokémon, it will appear in our Pokémon bag with a dark aura and we will not be able to exchange it. To do this you have to purify itusing 2000 Powder stars and candies of the specific creature. Purified Pokémon are more powerful, they can be exchanged and they know the normal Retribution type movement.
