Pokemon Go Rocket Grunts Lineups March 2024

The menacing team is all over the place, and it is our job to do everything we can and banish them from our idyllic world filled with non-corrupted Pokemon.

The team in question is the one we all know very well, Team Go Rocket. They are in Pokemon Go with full force, trying to take over anything that stands on their path. But the real question is, what is Team Go Rocket?

Team Go Rocket is known as the “evil” team in the Pokemon world, who constantly tries to take over Pokemon and corrupt them to the evil side. They do take some Pokemon, but through battles and quests Trainers manage to get them back. There are tiers, if you will, in Team Go Rocket, and they are consisted out of Team Go Rocket Grunts, Team Go Rocket Leaders, and the Team Go Rocket Boss named Giovanni.

Team Go Rocket Grunts are often found at PokeStops. Infected, as I would like to call them, these PokeStops have a different appearance to the ones we are used to see, and they turn black with red accents. Once a Trainer is in the range of that PokeStop, the blue disappears and a Team Go Rocket Grunt appears.

They do have a schedule, so they appear at 00:00, at 6:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and at 6:00 p.m. There are also balloons, and they roughly appear at the same time. On the other hand, if you are after the Team Go Rocket Leaders, you need to have a Rocket Radar equipped in Pokemon Go, and they will start appearing instead of the Team Go Rocket Grunts. The Shadow Pokemon they are using can turn out to be Shiny Shadow Pokemon, which is something we all are after.

Keep in mind that to get to Team Go Rocket Leaders, you would need to defeat six Team Go Rocket Grunts, which grant you Mysterious Items, which later turn into a Rocket Radar.

We also have a few days to battle with Shadow Mewtwo during the World of Wonders: Taken Over event, so be sure to make the most out of it.

Now, onto what is really, really important. Team Go Rocket uses Shadow Pokemon, so they are a little bit stronger than their normal counterparts, so you would need to have a solid Pokemon team that would go up against these Shadow Pokemon.

But what are the Shadow Pokemon lineups that Team Go Rocket Grunts are using in March 2024? Fear not, as I did my little research and decided to share it with you all. Team Go Rocket Shadow Pokemon lineups tend to rotate once per Season, so I guess that we will have two months with the lineups we already know.
