Trainers may have a lot of trouble finding Giovanni on Pokémon Go in September.
Giovanni, Team GO Rocket Manager, is a villain every trainer must fight for. This is because killing Giovanni offers a chance to capture Mewtwo, a powerful Pokémon, making it almost intimidating to the game. Anyone who handles Mewtwo gets the best Pokémon in most attacks, as well as a great Master League option.
Unfortunately, Giovanni is gone. According to Niantic, he is reportedly missing. It has been hinted that he is secretly planning something bad, so it will be interesting to see what he has in stock.
However, this means that Trainor cannot fight Giovanni for now. Super Rocket radars don’t work, so using them is pointless.
The Pokémon Go announcement did not mention when Giovanni would return. The only additional information he had to offer was, “Be sure to keep an eye out for updates throughout the season.”
This suggests potentially larger events that revolve around Team Go Rocket later during the vandalism. This season is all about Psychic-type Pokémon (as well as Ghost-type), so it makes sense to release the most powerful Psychic Pokémon during this time.
While Team Go Rocket may not be involved, there are many other events that trainers look forward to. There is already a Special Study where trainers can pick up the legendary Pokémon Hoopa, who also seems to be the mascot of the evil season.
Psychic Spectacular also returns to Pokémon Goon. The event will present Incay and its development in Malamar. These are Generation VI Psychic and Dark Pokémon with a very unique method of evolution.
