Team GO Rocket is officially back! Arlo, Sierra, Cliff, and Giovanni are available to meet once again, and Niantic has provided additional bonuses to make up for the issue that caused TGR encounters to be disabled in recent weeks.
Niantic has announced two makeup bonuses:
- To make up for the time Team GO Rocket was out, Shadow Zapdos will return as a match when you defeat Giovanni from Tuesday, June 1 at 12am to Thursday, June 17 at 12am local time.
- Trainers, as an added makeup, we’ve added a free box to the in-app store, containing 30 Poké Balls and 1 Rocket Radar. This box will be available until April 29 at 7 pm PT.
The GO Rocket Box is now available in the in-game store and players have confirmed that Team GO Rocket Balloons are also active again. We are happy to see our favorite villains return to the game, especially at a time when some of us are stuck on the inside and some can play normally.
For more information on the Shadow Pokémon that are available in TGR encounters, check out our Shadow Pokémon guide in Pokémon GO.
The Sustainability Week Event is also ongoing, so make sure you have some time to play during the event; if you’re lucky, you might just find a shiny Trubbish!
