How to find Giovanni: Super Radar Rocket

Without a Super Radar Rocket we cannot face Giovanni. That is why the investigation The Higher They Fly is so important, because its six phases are presented mandatory to obtain this important item and then challenge the leader of Team GO Rocket. Phase 4/6 of these missions will have us face Arlo, Cliff and Sierra, whose individual rewards are 1250 XP (3750 XP) plus an additional reward of 2500 XP, 1000 Stardust and the long-awaited Super Radar Rocket, the object that we They give by defeating the trio of recruits.

Once the Super Radar Rocket is activated, we must remember that the confrontation against Giovanni is limited to specific hours and in specific places: from 06:00 AM to 10:00 PM local time at the PokéStops. Also in the Globes.

Now comes the great challenge, phase 5/6 of the investigation The Higher They Fly, which is the step where we will find Giovanni, we will challenge him and, with a good strategy, we will defeat him. The rewards are interesting: 5 Maximum Potions for finding it, 20 Ultra Ball for challenging it and 5 Maximum Revive if we defeat it. Add to that 3000 XP, 1 MT fast attack and 1 MT charged attack.
