The Pokemon Go Silent Schemes Special Research quest has gone live, giving trainers a new batch of tasks to complete as they work together to foil Team Go Rocket’s plans – and earn some great rewards along the way.

Team Go Rocket are always lurking in the shadows in Pokemon Go, but every now and then a special event makes them an even bigger threat. The latest event to do that is the All-Hands Rocket Retreat, which began on April 3, 2022.

As well as an increased presence at PokeStops and new lineups for Arlo, Cliff, Sierra, and Giovanni (including Shadow Latias), there’s a new Silent Schemes Special Research quest for players to take on.
