Team Rocket’s Jesse and James are now in Pokémon Go

Iconic Team Rocket duo Jesse and James are in now Pokémon Go.

Jesse and James are the representatives of Team Rocket in the Pokémon TV series, and are now finally making the switch to the game. This is yet another nod to the TV series in Pokémon Go.

Jesse and James fly around in the new Team Go Rocket hot air balloons that have recently been found in Pokémon Go. You can recognize them by their hot air balloon in the shape of a Meowth.

Jesse and James can only be found in Pokémon Go for a limited time, so be happy quickly. If you win against them, you have a chance to catch a Shiny Ekans of Koffing.

Jesse and James are part of the second week of special challenges in Pokémon Go in the build-up to Pokémon Go Fest 2020. Team Rocket is featured prominently, now flying around the map in hot air balloons (next to the PokéStops). Through research you can create a Super Rocket Radar and take on Giovanni again, who this time has a Shadow Suicune that you can catch if you win against him.

The presence of Team Rocket will be extra large this Sunday between 11am and 12pm. You also get double Stardust when you defeat a member of Team Rocket, along with a TM that can make a Pokémon forget Frustration.
