Pokemon Go: Team Go Rocket Balloons Are Now Appearing in the Sky
You can battle members of Team Go Rocket without being near a PokeStop.
Now, the update has started rolling out to trainers, depending on their in-game level. This update will cause members of Team Go Rocket to appear in hot air balloons flying above the in-game map. Players can tap these balloons to see the character that’s inside and battle them.
To start, only trainers who had reached Level 40 (the game’s maximum level) could access this feature. However, as of this writing, it’s now available to anyone who has reached at least Level 35 in Pokemon Go.
Previously, players needed to find members of Team Go Rocket at PokeStops in order to battle them. With this update, these balloons can appear anywhere, so even players who aren’t next to a PokeStop can participate in these battles.
