As promised in recent days, the invasion of Team Rocket in Pokemon GO is finally a reality: from the late evening of July 22nd the evil duo (trio, also counting Meowth) started to make its appearance in the game, here is all that is to know.

As the most attentive players have noticed, some Pokèsts have been stormed by the GO Rocket Team, these buildings are recognizable by the presence of a large red R on the top, accessible only to coaches of level 8 or higher. Entering the Pokèstop, a challenge will start against a recruit from Team Rocket, a 3v3 battle with a Premier Ball required to capture the new Shadow Pokemon.
