Update October 23rd, 2020: Team GO Rocket has taken over more Pokemon! Silph researchers are working to confirm the new line-ups.
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.
