All New Shadow Pokemon Coming to Pokemon GO

With 8 new offerings to encounter, here’s a list of the new Shadow Pokemon datamined to be coming to Pokemon GO very soon:

  • Patrat
  • Watchog
  • Purrloin
  • Liepard
  • Ducklett
  • Swanna
  • Foongus
  • Amoonguss

Plus, don’t miss your chance to catch Shadow Latios in Pokemon GO this month!

To catch these Shadow Pokemon, players will need to battle against Rocket Grunts at select PokeStops and Rocket Balloons. And while none of them will be too powerful in-game, there’s one that is already catching players’ eyes.

“Shadow Ducklett is about to destroy the little cup meta,” Reddit user Big-Shawty writes.

And it’s not the only one that’ll be effective! Given the popularity of Bronzor in competitive battling, Shadow Purrloin might be an even more powerful counter.

This new datamine comes from Poke_miners on Twitter, and it should be noted that we don’t know when these ‘mons will drop in the full game. But if you’re a Shadow Pokemon collector, your collection is about to get even bigger!

Meanwhile there are even more free rewards dropping in-game for Pokemon GO’s Anniversary event! Don’t miss out on the title’s 6th birthday which starts very soon.

However, Pokemon GO fans are outraged over July’s Community Day already. With that in mind, at least there’s plenty more content to enjoy.
