Shadow Pokemon were introduced into Pokemon GO not so long ago. They were introduced alongside a mechanic that sees Team Rocket members taking over PokeStops and pilfering the items that PokeStops provide players when spun.
Initially, the Shadow Pokemon available were somewhat limited, but since then, the list has gradually expanded, and Team Rocket members have appeared with more captured critters. Now, the official Pokemon GO Twitter account has revealed that another slew of new Pokemon are joining Team Rocket's ranks as Shadow Pokemon.
Shadow Pokemon are Pokemon that have 'doors to their hearts' shut. They appear shrouded in shadow and typically have glowing red eyes. After trainers successfully defeat the Team Rocket members utilizing these poor Pokemon, the trainer has the option to capture the Shadow Pokemon. Then, it can be purified, instantly boosting its level and freeing it from Team Rocket's grasp.
The new list of Shadow Pokemon includes Abra, Gloom, Growlithe, Hitmonchan, Larvitar, Oddish, Psyduck, Turtwig, Venomoth, and Venonat. They join an already expansive list that contains the full evolution trees of Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Magikarp, Rattata, and Dratini, among a myriad of others.
