Pokemon GO: How to complete "A Challenging Development"
Pokemon GO has been on a spree of Team Go Rocket quests and tasks since they've begun "invading" the world around. You have to complete a few sets of Research Tasks and battle Cliff, Arlo, and Sierra - a trio of Team Go Rocket Leaders in order to reach the boss Giovanni.
Two previous quests in October and November called Looming in the Shadows and A Troubling Situation were ongoing. You will need to have completed those quests if you wish to do the challenges in "A Challenging Development", a storyline quest that leads you to Giovanni.
As you continue your hunt for Team Rocket and freeing Shadow Pokemon, you'll also get a chance to catch "Shadow Zapdos" if you have defeated Giovanni. Shadow Pokemon are a lot stronger than regular Pokemon, so be prepared.
