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.
