The new Team GO Rocket Special Research in Pokemon GO Season 10: Rising Heroes is called From the Shadows.

To complete the From The Shadows Special Research in Pokemon GO, players must finish all five steps in the Research which are all about Team GO Rocket.

The steps involve catching and purifying Shadow Pokemon as well as defeating members of Team GO Rocket, from Grunts to Team Leaders, and finally, the boss, Giovanni!

Of course, the best time to start completing this is during the latest Team GO Rocket Takeover, but it can be finished at any point, so long as you claim it before June 1, 2023.
