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.

The timing's pretty interesting because a Jessie and James event just started this week in Pokémon Masters.
**yaaaawwwnnn** C'mon, no one cares about these guys.
Wake me up when they add the REAL Team Rocket in.
I am of course speaking of Butch & Cassidy.
It's a shame they had to use the janky looking character models from the CGI remake of Mewtwo Strikes Back.
@g_ruz it was supposedly all to tie into the new Pokémon movie, which would’ve come out this week but is obviously post-poned
@Desrever What’s the real team rocket? Giovanni is in Pokemon GO already for over a year now.
Cool, I was happy to see them appear in Pokemon Masters too. Also, the models for Jessie and James are so much better than the models used in Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee.
@dux Oh, I wasn’t aware of that. Thanks for the info!
To unite all peoples within our nation! To denounce the evils of truth and love! ... Team Rocket blasts off at the speed of light! Surrender now, or prepare to fight!
Is it just me or is Jessie's face a lil off like its a bit to narrow?
@dux interesting, thank you!
@Friendly Sorry, my sarcasm may not have come through there. Butch & Cassidy replaced Jessie & James for a season of pokemon (I think the Orange Island League? I could be way off there)
They weren't anywhere near as charming or interesting as Jessie/James are
@Desrever i see
I actually don’t even know Butch and Cassidy.
Just finished my first battle with them. They're surprisingly easy to defeat (I mean, I beat them, so they must be easy to beat). Pretty fun addition to the game.
PREPARE FOR TROUBLE
Did they use the models from the CGI-Pokémon movie remake?
@RareFan I think so. Bad choose lmao
@Desrever they never replaced them as the main antagonists for Ash, Butch and Cassidy were in basically ten episodes of the entire anime series combined....
@Papichulo Meowth! That's right!
@dux Thanks for the refresher! I haven't watched those episodes since they first aired.
Googled it just for fun. 21 years ago.
I feel like an old man now.
Jessie looks okay, but James’ nose.... 🤥
@Desrever @dux @Friendly yea, they replaced Jessie and James as the primary antagonists in Pokémon Chronicles with Richie replacing Ash as the main protagonist. They were just about as effective as Jessie and James were though (There actually was an episode of Chronicles where all 4 of them were training to join Team Rocket which was probably the best episode, imo).
Ah yes. "Blotch" and Cassidy.
yelling in background
