Pokémon GO tends to get news every week, and sometimes Niantic’s surprises are a nostalgic blow to the hearts of gamers who watched the Pokemon anime at some point in their childhood. Today we have another one of those cases, since Niantic added Jesse and James from Team Rocket.

Through a statement on their website, Niantic reported that Team Rocket members Jesse and James in the Pokemon anime are now appearing on Pokemon GO. These charismatic characters will appear in the world of Pokémon GO flying in their huge Meowth-shaped balloon.

So, if you open Pokémon GO you may find the Jessie and James balloon flying over your area. If so, you must touch it for a chance to fight these iconic characters. Keep in mind that both of them will have dark Pokémon at their disposal, so you should prepare for a battle with a certain level of challenge.

It is important to note that Jessie and James will not stay forever in Pokémon GO. So since Niantic hasn’t said how long they’ll stay in the game, we recommend facing them when you get a chance.

And to you, what did you think of the arrival of Jessie and James to Pokémon GO? Tell us in the comments.
