The following Pokemon can hatch from a Strange Egg: Larvitar, Scraggy, Trubbish, Deino, Absol and for the first time in Pokemon Go: Pawniard, Vullaby and Sandile!
- Defeat a Team GO Rocket Leader to receive a Strange Egg. You’ll need to have space in your Egg inventory before your battle in order to receive a Strange Egg. Strange Eggs will continue to be available in Pokémon GO after the event ends.
- Eggs will hatch in 1/4 distance during the event.
- For the first time since March, new Team GO Rocket Special Research will be available! Join Professor Willow as he and the team leaders investigate Team GO Rocket’s involvement with Strange Eggs, culminating in a battle with Giovanni himself! Defeat Giovanni to save Shadow Mewtwo!

If you currently have the The Shadowy Threat Grows Special Research from earlier this year, you’ll need to complete it first before you can obtain this new Special Research.
