Pokemon Go API – Shadow Pokemon List

This post talks about the latest API I have added to PoGoAPI.net, the Shadow Pokemon list.

What are Shadow Pokemon

Shadow Pokemon are those that have been stolen by Team Rocket and overpowered.

Currently there are only a few Pokemon released as possible shadow Pokemon.

These are obtained by finding a rocket stop and fighting the grunt at it. Once you defeat the grunt you are given the opportunity to catch one of their Pokemon they leave behind.

Getting the Shadow Pokemon names and ID’s

This API shows the currently available shadow Pokemon.

GET /api/v1/shadow_pokemon.json

Returns a json dict with the keys being the pokemon ID, the values are an array containing the pokemon name and ID.

Example data

    1: {
        id: 1,
        name: "Bulbasaur"
    2: {
        id: 2,
        name: "Ivysaur"
    3: {
        id: 3,
        name: "Venusaur"
    4: {
        id: 4,
        name: "Charmander"
    }, ...

The full documentation is available on the PoGoAPI.net documentation page.
