Team GO Rocket during the Tricky Pokémon event in Pokémon Go

Instead of their usual lineups, Team GO Rocket will be entirely fielding teams of Shadow Aipom during the event. Apparently, they tried catching the Johto Pokémon to stop its tricks and wound up being the butt of the joke. This Normal Pokémon uses Normal, Ghost, Fighting, and Flying attacks and is vulnerable to Fighting moves.

This is the first time Shadow Aipom has been available, so be sure to try to catch some. Team GO Rocket will appear more often at PokéStops and in balloons during the event, so you should have plenty of opportunities.
