The latest Pokemon Go Update was on Team Go Rocket but the developers recently informed in their official Pokemon Go update website that they were addressing the issues with Team GO Rocket and this was the reason for the extended delay with it. Now Team Go Rocket is back and along with it, the players are also receiving a special Pokemon as an encounter. This decision was made by the Niantic team in order to make up for the time Team GO Rocket was away. Shadow Zapdos will be returning as an encounter when the players defeat Giovanni from Tuesday, June 1, 2021, at 12:00 a.m. until Thursday, June 17, 2021, at 12:00 a.m. local time.
