Save Legendary Shadow Pokémon This Month in Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO is hosting a few special events this February, including a task to rescue legendary shadow pokémon Raikou from Giovanni, the Team Rocket leader.

Complete your most recent Team GO Rocket Special Research, and you will get access to February’s offering: “A Professor’s Work is Never Done”. Once more you will be tasked with fighting Team Rocket, its leaders and Giovanni for a chance to catch Raikou, the legendary shadow pokémon.

Woobat will also be making its Pokémon GO debut this month, available along with bonus Woobat candies as Research Breakthrough encounters. The adorable noise the Woobat makes along with the heart-shaped mark it leaves on your skin also ties in with this month’s Valentine’s day celebration. Pink pokémon will be more common from February 14th – 17th, and there will also be a raid day on February 15th featuring Lickitung.


We can also look forward to Tornadus five-star raids, a Sinnoh region celebration event and a friendship weekend celebration this month, as well as new experimental event types: Spotlight Hour and Mystery Bonus Hour.
