Pokémon Go got a new Team Go Rocket event, “All-Hands Rocket Retreat,” which adds new Special Research that rewards Shadow Latias if you complete it. The event adds lots of new Shadow Pokémon as well as Sandalit and Salazzle. In our Pokémon Go All-Hands Rocket Retreat event guide, we detail the Special Research and other bonuses.

The event takes place from April 3-7, 2022 and you can remove the Shadow Pokémon move Frustration with a Charged TM during this time period.
