"Pokemon Go" has a new research quest that entails battling against Team Rocket and capturing the powerful Shadow Pokemon. Earlier, Niantic Labs removed the Team Rocket and Shadow Pokemon in the game but now, they are back including the introduction of the A Troubling Situation Research Tasks. This is an expansion of the Team Rocket Event and offers massive rewards for active players.

As recently revealed, the Team Rocket Grunts are positioned on the PokeStops of "Pokemon Go" and can be easily identified because they are discolored on the map. Additionally, the PokeStops can be easily identified because of the erratic movement that they give off when clicked on, which triggers a Pokemon battle. After you have vanquished Team rocket and saved the PokeStop, you will be able to add to your collection a Shadow Pokemon.

The Shadow Pokemon needs to be purified, and you can do so by using Candy and Stardust. This process makes the Shadow Pokemon stronger and will decrease the Candy and Stardust needed to Evolve, Power Up, or learn a new Pokemon attack in "Pokemon Go." In addition, it will unlock Return, a new exclusive Charged Attack while changing the aura of the Shadow Pokemon from dark to bright luminous one. All of these feed into the new Research Quest titled A Troubling Situation.

This new Research Quest is composed of four parts that come with various rewards. It is based on the activities of the new team Rocket in "Pokemon Go" and entails players to be ready to do battle all the time. Check out the new tasks available to trainers on the iOS and Android platform.

PART TWO

In the second part of the new Research Quest of "Pokemon Go" trainers must catch a couple of Shadow Pokemon for the encounter with Ekans. In addition, they have to defeat three Team Rocket Grunts to prepare for the encounter with Koffing.

PART THREE

The third part of the new Research Quest will require trainers to purify three Shadow Pokemon using 3,000 Stardust.
