Niantic has dropped some more details on a couple upcoming events in Pokemon GO, namely the Greedy Gluttons event and a new Team GO Rocket Takeover event that will ultimately reward you with the best attacker in Pokemon GO!
Check out the Greedy Gluttons trailer:
Greedy Gluttons Event
The Greedy Gluttons event will begin on Wednesday, November 9th, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. to Thursday, November 17th, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. your local time. This new event will have hungry, big mouthed, or food-themed Pokemon spawning and hatching from eggs.
A couple highlights from this event is of course the debut of Guzzlord as a 5-start raid. This will be a tough raid, but unfortunately, Guzzlord does not currently seem like it will be a useful Pokemon within the game.
But there is another exciting new debut, and that is shiny Munchlax! Shiny Snorlax has been available for quite some time, so this has been long waited. Unfortunately, as is the case for the shiny babies, Munchlax can only be obtained from 7km eggs received during the Greedy Gluttons event, so make sure you collect those 7km eggs during that time!
Team GO Rocket Takeover
Team GO Rocket returns again, and grunts will be fighting with new shadow Pokemon. The Rocket leaders will also be equipped with new featured Pokemon, so last chance for shiny shadow Squirtle, Charmander, and Bulbasaur.
The biggest announcement for this event is that a new Rocket task will be initiated, and it will conclude with a Giovanni encounter that will reward players with Shadow Mewtwo. Shadow Mewtwo is the strongest attacker in Pokemon GO, so this is exciting news.
A shiny debut is also occurring during this event, and that is shiny Pawniard! Kind of similar to shiny Munchlax, Pawniard will only be available in 12km eggs received during the event.
In addition to those details, trainers will be able to use Charge TMs to get rid of Frustration on their shadow Pokemon. The Team GO Rocket Takeover event will begin on Monday, November 14th, 2022, at 12:00 a.m. and conclude on Thursday, November 17th, at 8:00 p.m. your local time.
Mysterious Gold Pokemon
Finally, over the weekend, there was a mysterious Pokemon that spawned after receiving a mysterious coin. On Saturday and Sunday this past weekend, lots of Pokestops turned gold and occasionally gave a mysterious coin, which initiated a conversation between Professor Willow and Jacque, a new character from the upcoming Pokemon Scarlett and Violet.
The new Pokemon has been revealed to be Gimmighoul, and there will be two forms: the Chest Form which will be available in the upcoming Switch games and the Roaming Form which will be available in a cross-promotional event between the Switch titles and Pokemon GO in early 2023.
Make sure you find a gold Pokestop and spin it for extra items and a chance to meet some new characters and see Roaming Form Gimmighoul walking beside you.
