Time to get our battle on! What is important to note is, GBL battles DO. NOT. COUNT. You can help achieve the Mega Goal by participating in Trainer Battles with your friends, Team GO Rocket Battles, and taking down opponent gyms! 

Don’t forget to evolve your Beedrill into Mega Beedrill for a temporary CP boost in your battles.

New Shadow Pokémon

Team GO Rocket will be equipped with a new line-up for you to defeat and take back our PokéStops or send their balloons flying!

We are unsure if it will be Grunts, Leaders, or both who will have new line-ups, so be sure to check back as we update once reports start rolling in!

Week 2 doesn’t seem so bad so far. I mean, there is still plenty of information to be had, but we will be sure to KNOCK-IT-OUT like Rocky Balboa…or, if you’re more of a fan of Mike Thysthon, him too. In all seriousness, stay up-to-date as we regularly update as reports come in! If you have new info to share, be sure to hit us up on Twitter or join our Discord!
