Something strange is happening in the world of Pokémon GO. The official Twitter account has been sharing glitchy images of what looks like Team Rocket members.
According to the posts, these are corrupted files from a computer, implying that they might be relating to Team Rocket and their takeover not long ago.
“Professor Willow has started to recover files from the corrupted folder, and he’s uncovered these images. One of the photos is still being restored…
Could these files be left over from Team GO Rocket’s recent take-over?
Who are these people?!”
Details are scarce as to what this all means. Current speculation falls under the idea that it’s an expansion of the last Team Rocket event, where shadow Pokémon are taking over PokéStops. The focus on these characters implies that there will be Team Rocket Executives instead of grunts, however. Others hope that this will lead to shadow variants of more legendary Pokémon.
We’ll know soon enough.
