Pokemon GO has introduced popular villain duo from Team Rocket - Jessie and James - as well as their cute Pokemon Meowth. This new update brings new event and avatar items inspired by the duo.

Today, Pokemon GO developer Niantic have some big news for all Team Rocket fans. The iconic duo of Pokemon villains - Jessie and James - are now live in Pokemon GO. 

"A mysterious duo has arrived in Pokémon GO via a...Meowth balloon? The two call themselves Jessie and James, and it looks like they’re up to no good! Help us defeat them," it is written in the announcement.

This new addition will include Team GO Rocket balloons, which prowl the skies and it is up to you to seek these balloons and once you find them, tap it to battle Jessie and James. 

However, be careful since Team GO Rocket has assigned Shadow Pokemon to protect them as they are trying to create more Shadow Pokemon. 

In addition to this "balloons event", Pokemon GO also has new avatar items, inspired by the two villains. These are of course, available in the in-game shop so go and grab some unique looking avatars if Team Rocket is your favourite. 

Niantic also says that Jessie and James will not stay in Pokemon GO for long so if you want to participate in the event, make sure to log in to Pokemon GO in the next few days.
