Pokemon Go Team Rocket Lineup

Update September 18th, 2021: The Season of Mischief is here and with that Giovanni went missing! We don't know what he's planning. Keep your eyes open and stay tuned! Decoy grunts are currently still encounterable in balloons. They aren't being tracked however! The other line-ups however are unchanged! - Double battles against the dark & fairy invasion type at one stop/ in one balloon are excluded from the currently displayed data! - Battles against Regular grunts that happened during the Bidoof invasion days are excluded from the currently displayed data! - Battles against Regular and Decoy grunts from Bidoof-Day (2021-07-01) weren't collected!
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.

“Wherever there is light, there is also shadow.”
