How to Locate Giovanni

You must finish the An Inter-egg-sting Development Special Research or the new A Seven-Colored Shadow Special Research to locate Giovanni.

When you finish stage 4 of the special research, you will get a Super Rocket Radar. It functions similarly to a normal Rocket Radar, except it monitors Giovanni rather than GO Rocket commanders.

The Super Rocket Radar does not instantly take you to Giovanni; instead, it shows the locations of both fake Grunts dressed as Giovanni and Giovanni’s real Hideout. To locate Giovanni, you’ll need to approach each PokéStop and conduct your own investigation.

Giovanni Special Research is available once a month.

Giovanni’s specter Ho-Oh is vulnerable to Rock, Electric, and Water moves. It is very simple to counter, particularly if you have access to Smack Down users (Tyranitar, Terrakion, Gigalith).
