Pokemon Go developer Niantic has teased that Team Rocket may soon arrive in the mobile monster catching game via a hot air balloon.
Pokemon Go Fest is currently underway in Dortmund, Germany, and Eurogamer reports that a black hot air balloon – sporting a huge red R logo – was flown above the event.
Team Rocket has long been associated with hot air balloons, most notably in the Pokemon anime, where they frequently fly around in a Meowth-shaped balloon.
Alongside the balloon sightings, pictures taken at the Dortmund event with Pokemon Go’s AR mode show members of Team Rocket leaning into the picture. The same effect happened at last month’s Pokemon Go Fest event in Chicago.
