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 EurogamerÂ 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 Goâ€™s AR mode show members of Team Rocket leaning into the picture. The same effect happened at last monthâ€™s Pokemon Go Fest event in Chicago.
