Jessie and James, the most iconic members of the dastardly Team Rocket, have made their way into Pokémon GO. For a limited time, you can take them on in battle and pick up some sweet goodies.

This week, Team Rocket hot air balloons have been doing the rounds in Pokémon GO as a way for players to battle the pesky bad guys from home. Now, a special Meowth balloon can be found - just like the one Jessie and James use in the anime - and if you tap it, you'll be able to enter into a battle with them.

They won't be around forever, but Eurogamer reports that Jessie and James come with a shiny-possible Shadow Ekans and Koffing, and that Shadow Suicune will also be available when fighting Giovanni in a balloon. Avatar items inspired by Jessie and James are also now available in the shop.
