If you're among the group of people still playing Pokémon Go, then there's a new challenge for you. Team Rocket Go's leaders have shown up, and now you'll have to take them out.

Team Rocket Go was added to Pokémon Go earlier this year, occasionally showing up at Pokéstops and fighting you if you tried to claim items. Beating them got you nice rewards, and a chance to save the Pokémon that they corrupted. Of course, since they're a gang, there have to be leaders. Now the four leaders of Team Rocket Go are in the game.

As you defeat members of Team Rocket Go, there's a chance they'll drop Mysterious Components. Collect six of those and you can build a Rocket Rader. Using one gives you a chance to find either Cliff, Sierra, or Arlo, the three leaders of Rocket Go. They'll be extra tough challenges, but beat them and you have a chance to earn really nice rewards and save even stronger Pokémon from the clutches of evil.

In addition to this, you can finish a special questline and get rewarded with the Super Rocket Radar. You can use this to find the real leader behind both the original Team Rocket and the mobile version: Giovanni. He's the toughest of them all, and you'll really need to train to win. However, manage that, and you can catch shadow versions of legendary Pokémon. Now that'd be a fantastic reward. Of course, this also means having to find the real Giovanni, because apparently he has several body doubles ready to protect him, as you may expect from any good gang leader.

Pokémon Go is currently available for free on iOS and Android devices.
