Prepare for Trouble! Pokemon Go Team Rocket Costumes Now Available

For those who live to be bad, you’ll pleased to know Pokemon Go has infused a lil’ bit of Team Rocket into its avatar costumes.

Unless you’ve saved up most of your coins, you might need to dip into your real-life wallet to pick up these Pokemon Go Team Rocket threads. Then again, unleashing your inner James is essentially priceless, so what are you waiting for?.

Male avatars have the following Pokemon Go Team Rocket items, including the classic black ensemble, as well as Rainbow Rocket’s get-up from Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon:

  • Team Rocket Hat – 100 Coins
  • Team Rocket Top – 400 Coins
  • Team Rainbow Rocket Top – 400 Coins
  • Team Rocket Gloves – 50 Coins
  • Team Rocket Pants – 200 Coins
  • Team Rocket Boots – 200 Coins
  • Team Rainbow Rocket Boots – 200 Coins

The Jesses of the world – and anyone with a female avatar – will be glad to know that you get a little extra, including a skirt, gloves and a trendy belt.

  • Team Rocket Hat – 100 Coins
  • Team Rocket Top – 400 Coins
  • Team Rainbow Rocket Top – 400 Coins
  • Team Rocket Gloves – 50 Coins
  • Team Rocket Skirt – 100 Coins
  • Team Rocket Belt – 100 Coins
  • Team Rainbow Rocket Belt – 100 Coins
  • Team Rocket Boots – 200 Coins
  • Team Rainbow Rocket Boots – 200 Coins

I wish that Pokemon Go had opted for the anime’s classic look rather than the black getup and rainbow variant of the games but, hey ho, beggars can’t be choosers. The ability to go skulking about in the clothes of Pokemon’s peskiest fiends can’t go unheralded. Maybe it’s a small hint that Team Rocket will one day turn up in Pokemon Go, say, in one of the game’s new upcoming quests?

Let’s hope Niantic keep on plugging away to bring us even more classic-inspired content. A Missingno balaclava, anyone? No, just me?
