Although Niantic previously announced that Team GO Rocket will no longer receive monthly updates until September, it today announced the return of Pokémon Go villains with a new one. Willow Report. The story in this issue of the Willow report made reference to the recent solstice event, during which Mystic team leader Blanche discovered pieces of paper containing notes related to the infamous GO Team rocket. Blanche brought these notes to Professor Willow by simply saying, “Something is going on.”
The first piece of paper was a Team GO Rocket growl building a hot air balloon sporting the Rocket R. The second piece had the growl of a hot air balloon dropping a net on a Pikachu from above. Recently, data miners also found code in the Pokémon Go APK regarding Team GO Rocket balls. It is certainly possible that the Willow Reports will continue throughout the summer – after all, the initial introduction to Team GO Rocket has been extended over a long period of time with several Willow Reports fleshing out the story. However, I wouldn’t be counting on Team GO Rocket sooner, maybe even in time for Pokémon GO Fest 2020.
