- Pokemon GO is introducing two new Pokemon, Varoom and Revavroom, in the Taken Treasures event.
- Trainers can find Varoom in 12 km eggs and evolve it using 50 Varoom Candy.
- During the event, trainers will battle Giovanni and his Shadow Kyogre and have the chance to encounter shiny Shadow Ho-Oh.
Pokemon GO has announced the debuts of Varoom and Revavroom in an upcoming event, Taken Treasures. Pokemon GO has started its eighth year with exciting content to keep players engaged.
For example, Dusk Form Lycanroc debuted in one of the first Pokemon GO events of the year. Niantic then added shiny Cutiefly to Pokemon GO and revealed that Annihilape is coming to the game. Another big announcement was that Origin Forme Dialga and Palkia will debut in Pokemon GO. While Pokemon GO‘s Pokedex continues to grow, some generations still have critters to be added. That’s the case with Paldea, which still doesn’t have all the Pokemon available in Pokemon GO. But a new event will soon bring two Scarlet and Violet Pokemon for Pokemon GO players.

Corphish, Snorunt, Chimchar, Piplup, Croagunk, Dwebble, and Ferroseed will appear more often when battling Team GO Rocket grunts and their leaders.

The appearance of Team GO Rocket is an exciting moment for Pokemon GO players, who can battle the villains to catch Shadow Pokemon. The return of Team GO Rocket in 2024 is particularly interesting, as it brings with them two Pokemon from the latest generation. Another highlight is the debut of shiny Shadow Ho-Oh, which, for players lucky enough to catch it, will have a powerful variant of the Gen 2 Pokemon on their records.
After a test run via an April Fools’ joke on Google Maps, Pokemon GO was released to the public in the summer of 2016. The AR mobile app saw unparalleled success and continues to be one of the largest mobile games in the world, pulling in billions for developer Niantic.
