Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go are preparing a big surprise for Sunday and it looks like we might see Team Rocket’s boss Giovanni for the first time in the game.
Pokemon Go’s tweet confirmes that something new is coming this Sunday, July 28, and rumors are saying that the self-proclaimed strongest Trainer Giovanni might be next big thing in the game.
According to Bulbapedia:
Giovanni (Japanese: サカキ Sakaki) was the head of Team Rocket, and served as the secretive Gym Leader of Viridian City’s Gym, known officially as the Viridian Gym. He handed out the Earth Badge to Trainers who defeated him. As a Gym Leader, he specialized in Ground-type Pokémon, but his master plan includes collecting rare Pokémon of all types. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, he makes a return appearance as the leader of Team Rainbow Rocket. He is the only character in the games to have the Trainer classes BossFRLG/Rocket BossHGSS/Team Rocket BossPE (Japanese: ロケットだんボス Team Rocket Boss) and Team Rainbow Rocket (Japanese: Rロケットだん Team R Rocket).
As mentioned above, Giovanni specialized in Ground Type Pokemon, which means that they might even launch a Ground Type Pokemon event on Sunday.
This is not yet confirmed, but the Team Rocket invasion in NYC, USA and the image from the tweet points to Giovanni.
Prepare for Trouble and make it Double!
