Pokémon Go is in the middle of its annual anniversary event. And what Pokémon experience is complete without an incompetent evil team showing up to try and ruin everyone’s fun?

To tie into the game’s sixth anniversary, Niantic is hosting a Battle Weekend event alongside Anniversary Even 2022. This means players will get tons of Go Battle League and Team Go Rocket-related bonuses and content to take advantage of on July 9 and 10.

This includes battling more Go Rocket Grunts, starter Pokémon gaining access to their ultimate elemental moves, and new Shadow Pokémon like Shadow Latios and Shadow Luxray making their first appearance. Just be ready to challenge Giovanni and his top admins to get the most out of Battle Week.
