Team Go Rocket will soon be living the island life in a new limited-time event: the Pokemon Go All-Hands Rocket Retreat.
The even kicks off April 3 at 12 AM local time and will run until April 7 at 11:59 PM local time, and it will see the fiendish Team Go Rocket try to steal some of Alola’s rarest Pokemon. Players will be able to complete event-themed research tasks that will net them special rewards, including the ability to catch Shadow Latias.
The Alolan forms of Rattata, Exeggutor, and Sandshrew will join the Shadow ranks in this new event.
The event will also add two new Alolan Pokemon to the game: the Fire- and Poison-type Salandit and its evolution Salazzle. 50 Salandit candies will be needed to evolve Salandit to Salazzle, but only a female Salandit can evolve, so make sure you have the right one.
The full list of happenings during the All-Hands Rocket Retreat is below:
New Shadow Pokémon
Shadow Alolan Rattata
Shadow Alolan Exeggutor
Shadow Alolan Sandshrew
Team GO Rocket will appear more frequently, both at PokéStops and in balloons
Charged TMs will allow Shadow Pokémon to forget the Charged Attack Frustration.
The All-Hands Rocket Retreat was included as part of the Pokemon Go April 2022 calendar of events, along with daily and week-long events, special Pokemon Spotlight Hours, and all-new raids featuring Tapu Bulu, Thundurus and Landorus in their Therian Formes, and more. Niantic has also recently announced the schedule for Pokemon Go Fest 2022, including stops in Berlin, Seattle, and Sapporo.
