To commemorate the new addition of Team Rocket in Pokémon Go, some grunts have made their way to New York City to vandalize advertisements and cause mischief.
The pink-haired grunts were spotted getting out of cabs with paint, plotting something devious at subway stations, and even vandalizing some Pokémon Go ads seen around the subway.

In case you were wondering what the red paint was about. (This is the Herald Sq Subway station) @MYSTIC7 @_ZoeTwoDots @trnrtips @PkmnMasterHolly pic.twitter.com/1rzunyL18o— Level 5 Radio - Jowy (@level5radio) July 26, 2019
The overexaggerated evil poses in these photos are what really make it, being honest. Also, how cruel is Team Rocket to draw angry eyebrows on those cute Pokémon? Dang!
The Team Rocket balloon has also touched down, with an announcement saying that the organization has “physically arrived on Earth.” Rocket grunts have also began to spawn all over the city in abundance, taking over bunches of Pokéstops, presenting a perfect time for any NYC residents to knock out the latest Special Research tasks.
Some players suspect that there could be something bigger happening later today, as Professor Willow announced that there was an energy surge in New York City. After all, a couple of Rocket grunts aren’t that powerful on their own, right?
