Within 24 hours of their appearance on Pokémon GO, Team Rocket and Shadow Pokémon mysteriously disappeared.
Pokémon GO Twitter posted the following message a few hours ago:
“Did Professor Willow notice that the sightings of discolored PokéStops and Pokémon shrouded in a dark aura … stopped suddenly? Hmm … This phenomenon continues to get more worrying the further we investigate it.”
The message does not make it clear whether the disappearance of these phenomena is part of Team Rocket’s evil plan or if there are any problems with the Pokémon GO servers and Niantic has temporarily disabled the event.
In any case, if you’re playing Pokémon, don’t be surprised if you don’t find any Shadow Pokémon.
After taking a closer look with Spark, Professor Willow reported that Pokémon with some sort of mysterious aura were hanging around these discolored PokéStops. We hope they can get to the bottom of this! pic.twitter.com/MfzWa73WPN
