We have all been missing our mischievous friends, known as the Team GO Rocket and now we have some information about when they might be coming back in the game.
Some fans have noticed that there has been an update to Niantic’s official Known Issues page, and now it includes a piece of information that the problem with Team GO Rocket will be fixed with an upcoming update.
The Team GO Rocket appearances (together with the balloons) have been disabled and Niantic did not tell us when the villains might return, but at least now we know that they will return at some point in the following weeks/months.
Team GO Rocket Grunt encounters sometimes causes the game to freeze.
Issue description: Sometimes, when a Trainer initiates a battle with Team GO Rocket, the game will freeze and become unresponsive. This issue has been mitigated by removing Team GO Rocket encounters temporarily until this can be resolved.
Issue status: Fixed in an upcoming update
NOTE: Upcoming update doesn’t mean that the issues will be fixed in the next update.
Niantic and Pokemon Go should definitely consider compensating for this matter as many players can’t progress without the Team Go Rocket feature.
We should be hearing an official announcement soon, so stay tuned.
