Super Rocket Radar
The Super Rocket Radar (Japanese: スーパーロケットレーダー Super Rocket Radar) is an item in Pokémon GO. Designed by Professor Willow, it is a more advanced version of the Rocket Radar that can intercept signals to locate Giovanni's headquarters.
In Pokémon GO
When a Super Rocket Radar is equipped, it will reveal all PokéStops within interaction range used as Team GO Rocket Headquarters. These appear as invaded PokéStop occupied by Giovanni. However, upon interacting with the PokéStop, some of them may reveal to be guarded a Decoy Grunt instead, who may still yield a Mysterious Component if defeated. An equipped Super Rocket Radar will also cause Giovanni to appear out of the next Team GO Rocket balloon.
The Super Rocket Radar is consumed once the player is victorious against the real Giovanni. There is no limit to how many Decoy Grunts can be found and defeated using the Super Rocket Radar.
A Rocket Radar and a Super Rocket Radar can be equipped simultaneously. In the event that the same PokéStop is occupied by two Team GO Rocket members detected each of the radars, the one found by the Super Rocket Radar takes precedence, and the other will appear once the former is defeated. Under this same condition, if a Team GO Rocket balloon spawns, then Giovanni will appear out of it.
Like the Rocket Radar, the Super Rocket Radar only works on PokéStops between 6 A.M. to 10 P.M., local time. If players use the Rocket Radar to scan the area outside this time window, nothing will be found, and their team leader will suggest checking back in the morning. However, if a Team GO Rocket balloon appears outside this time window, an equipped Super Rocket Radar will still cause Giovanni to appear from it.
