Pokémon GO: New Special Research - Defeat Giovanni and Free Crypto-Ho-Oh

Starting Thursday, June 17 from 00:00 until Wednesday, September 1 at 00:00, you'll have the chance to face Crypto-Ho-Oh in an encounter with Team Rocket boss Giovanni. To make the task easier for trainers, a special quest called "A Seven-Colored Pokémon"

will be unlocked during this period, rewarding you with a Super Rocket Radar upon completion. This will make your search for Giovanni easier.Recommended Editorial ContentAtthis point, you will find external content from [PLATTFORM].

How good is Crypto-Ho-Oh?
Crypto Pokémon are more fragile and cost more Stardust to level, but have a higher attack value than their normal version. Even with few attack points, they are strong attackers compared to their non-Crypto variant. Even a perfect Crypto Ho-Oh won't be much use for raids, though, as there are better flight/fire attackers and even Crypto stats won't change that. So Ho-Oh is pretty uninteresting for raiders, in PvP the Mon has a niche. Raiders who are planning for the long term are waiting for Ho-Oh's signature attack, Purge Fire, anyway, which could make the colorful Pokémon much more interesting - depending on how Niantic balances the attack in Pokémon Go.

The best stats for Ho-Oh in PvP
Super League: 8/14/15 - Level 14Hyper League
: 6/4/15 - Level 23.5Master League
: 15/15/15 - Level 50

Pick up Super Rocket Radar?
If you have no interest in Crypto-Ho-Oh at all and don't fight much else with Rocket bullies for a Rocket Radar, you can also save the Super Rocket Radar and save it for Giovanni's next special Crypto Pokémon. Keep in mind, though, that the event runs through September - three months - during which you're not allowed to use up the Super Rocket Radar. And it's not clear if a more interesting Crypto Legendary will be waiting for you the following month.
