5 Tips To Beat Giovanni In Pokémon GO In July 2023: Guidelines And Steps

2 months ago By Ronny Walker

Giovanni returns to Pokémon GO throughout July to represent the largest link in the evil group of villains and thieves, Team GO Rocket.

It’s not enough to just release PokéStops or purify innocent Shadow Pokémon. Defeating the Team GO Rocket Grunts and their leaders Sierra Arlo and Cliff will be necessary to bring down the organization. Although this is only the prelude to the fight against the boss Giovanni.

This is the true mastermind of the evil Team GO Rocket, and you’ll need to prepare well if you’re going to claim victory in an epic showdown (and capture a Shadow Legendary Pokémon along the way).

How to find Giovanni in Pokémon GO

If you want to find and battle Giovanni in Pokémon GO during July 2023, you’ll need to meet a few requirements first.

First of all, you will need to create a Super Radar Rocket with the pieces that the leaders of Team GO Rocket drop: Sierra, Cliff and Arlo when they are defeated. To find them, you will need to defeat each Team GO Rocket recruit. This means that you will need to take down the organization from the smallest member to its three commanders to get to the mainstay of these villains.

After you have accomplished the laborious task of defeating the recruits and leaders, you will be able to assemble a Super Radar Rocket. This device will tell you Giovanni’s location at PokéStops, though you’ll need to be wary of potential Grunts posing as the boss.
