Team Rocket is a criminal organization set to steal other people’s Pokémon, with their headquarters in the Kanto Region, Johto region and a branch in the Sevii Islands. They are headed by Giovanni, who also doubles as the Viridian City Gym Leader. Team Rocket’s main objective was obtaining powerful and rare Pokémon to help their criminal syndicate in the hopes of someday taking over the world. They obtain these Pokémon by regular capture, or more often, theft. In addition to this, they also perform inhumane experiments on Pokémon to further enhance their power.
Team Rocket also plays a major part in the anime, as the Team Rocket trio of Jessie, James, and Meowth have followed Ash for decades, as he’s traveled across the Pokemon world. This is the fourth new outfit released by Pokemon Go in recent weeks based on iconic outfits from the main series games. Pokemon Go previously released outfits inspired by the Fisherman, Battle Girl, and Jogger trainer classes in the main series games.
As players, we shouldn’t expect Team Rocket to suddenly play a part in the main series. While the previous update added code related to “quests” to the game. Pokemon Go developers removed that code in the most recent update. We probably shouldn’t expect any Team Rocket events anytime soon….although fans would likely go nuts if Team Rocket started invading gyms.
If you plan to buy these cool outfits. Buying a complete outfit will cost players 950 PokeCoins. Players should take note that, while the male outfit includes the belt (and costs 200 coins), the female belt, and skirt are separate items that cost 100 PokeCoins each. Pokemon Go has so many more amazing feature to come. Let me hear you out in the comment or you can get connected with me on Snapchat-Vibsz16 and Instagram. Stay tuned.
