Pokemon Go Team Rocket Lineup

Update December 5th, 2022: The new line-ups have been confirmed. Data is from the beginning of the Rocket Takeover on the 14th Nov onwards. If an invasion type is able to reward you from the second slot, you have a 15% of encountering that species after defeating the grunt. Giovanni's current reward encounter is Mewtwo.
Potential Encounter Reward
Shiny variant can be obtained as an Invasion reward encounter
? Confirmation pending. We've not yet confirmed this encounter in our controlled study, but believe it is appearing! Typically clarified within a few hours.

Listed below are the current line-ups for Team GO Rocket's grunts and leaders. After defeating your opponent, you will have the opportunity to capture one of their Pokemon in its shadow form.

Totals in each column may not always match. There are a variety of reasons a researcher might have missed one Pokemon, including game crashes or not defeating their opponent.
