Pokémon Go ‘From the Shadows’ Special Research quest steps, rewards


Of the shadows is Giovanni’s latest research assignment in pokemon go.

It will debut at the end of March 2023 as part of the Let’s Go event and will end with a meeting and opportunity to Shadow Regice.

From the Shadows is part of a long line of investigative missions by Giovanni, which began in 2019 with A Troubling Situation. If From the Shadows doesn’t appear for you, first clear the most recent Giovanni quest in your quest log – the previous one was Shadowy Skirmishes from February 2023 – to make this new quest available.

The second half of the Let’s Go event will see a Team Go Rocket Takeover, which heralds changes for Eggs and Shadow Pokémon, which will be active until the event ends on Wednesday, March 29 at 8 p.m. local time.
