Trainers, due to recent issues with Team Go Rocket encounters, Niantic and Pokemon Go decided to temporarily disable this feature until further notice.
For the last few days, Pokemon Go players experienced a lot of issues with the Team Go Rocket feature, such as TGR balloons not showing on the map, Rocket balloons just freezes, game freezes on “Use your Rocket Radar and much more.
Niantic and Pokemon Go acknowledged the issues and said that they will temporarily disable Team Go Rocket encounters. They didn;t share any info about when Team Go Rocket will be back again, but we expect to see the issues fixed very soon.
Trainers, while we investigate errors associated with Team GO Rocket encounters, they will be temporarily unavailable. We’ll update here with more information. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Now, let’s go for the “fun” part. Most Pokemon Go players open the Team Go Rocket balloons when they are free, not working, or during the weekend. Well, we can’t open them this weekend, and would be fair enough we get free Rocket Radars as compensation.
What are your thoughts on this? We would like to hear from you, so please leave a comment below.
