Jessie and James now appearing in Pokemon GO
The famous Pokemon duo Jessie and James have shown up in the mobile game Pokemon GO. Both characters can be encountered through one of the new Team GO Rocket Balloons.
Avatar items inspired by Jessie and James have also been added to the shop.
Here’s the full announcement:
A mysterious duo has arrived in Pokémon GO via a…Meowth balloon? The two call themselves Jessie and James, and it looks like they’re up to no good! Help us defeat them!
As Team GO Rocket’s balloons prowl the skies, we’ve been investigating them further. The Grunts piloting the balloons are just as perplexed as we are as to where these characters came from. From what we understand, Team GO Rocket has assigned Shadow Pokémon to protect Jessie and James as they seek to create more Shadow Pokémon.
This is where you all come in! Check the map to see whether Jessie and James’s Meowth balloon is flying by. When the Meowth balloon appears, tap it to battle Jessie and James.
Plus, avatar items inspired by Jessie and James are now available in the shop!
It looks like Jessie and James won’t be here for long, so let’s GO teach these silly villains who’s boss before they leave.
