Pokemon Go : Team Go Rocket new characters hints the arrival of three new evil teams

Niantic has teased another set of cryptic images, which hints that Team Go Rocket has corrupted folders on Professor Willow’s computer. Earlier, the players were assuming that Rotom corrupted folders that were present in Professor Willow’s computer.

Rotom is known to inhabit different household appliances and technology-related products. The players thought it was Rotom who took possession of Professor Willow’s computer and corrupted it. But Niantic’s new tease has dismissed this theory.

Niantic has shared three images that feature the silhouettes of three anonymous characters. Interestingly, the images also have a letter R to the right of these unknown characters’ silhouettes. Now many players believe that these images have some connection with Team Go Rocket. Have a look at all three images down below.

Well, if you closely observe these images, you can infer that these characters’ models have been showcased for the first time for Pokemon Go. The first image features a female with an intimidating pose; the second tweet features a male who seems like a hardcore gym-goer, and the person in the third image is wearing glasses who seems very cunning.

Well, the characters teased in these images do not seem like a normal Team Go Rocket grunt. Many fans believe that these are Team Go Rocket bosses. Also, many PoGo players think that Pokemon Go will have three new evil teams similar to good teams (Team Mystic, Team Valor, and Team Instinct).

For a quick refresher, Pokemon Go’s ‘Adventure Sync Nearby feature‘ is back in the game. The feature was added to the game on August 15, but later it was disabled & removed from the game. However, after a wait of a month, the feature is live again in the game.


Players can enable this new feature from the settings tab of the game. If you don’t know how to activate it, you can head here. Pokemon Go Adventure Sync Nearby feature informs players about Nearby Pokemon even while Pokemon Go is closed. Have a look at the new Adventure Sync Nearby feature down below.

The new feature can be really helpful for players as it informs players about the Pokemon which they have not encountered before. On September 16, Niantic added the generation 5 Pokemon to the game, so the new feature provides an opportunity for players to catch new Gen 5 Pokemon with the help of this feature.

Also, Mewtwo is coming back to raids on October 8, 2019, from 6 pm to 7 pm in your local time zone. Players will also get two additional raid passes during the hour of the raid. Niantic has done this to make reparation for the cancellation of the Mewtwo Legendary Raid Hour, which was supposed to take place on September 18, 2019.
