Back at the end of September 2019, the official Pokemon GO Twitter account was teasing some sort of reveal by saying Professor Willow found a folder on his computer that was full of corrupted files. What followed were a series of images showing new characters that weren’t properly displaying. Now, it seems the Pokemon GO Team Rocket event that started in July 2019 is spreading with the appearance of Cliff, Arlo, and Sierra.
Cliff, Arlo, and Sierra appear to be three Team GO Rocket members holding prominent positions in the criminal agency. While details about each person have not been revealed, their official character art has been shared on Twitter.
In addition, the new Pokemon GO loading screen image has been shared. It shows a trainer facing Team GO Rocket, with Sierra, Arlo, and Cliff holding prominent positions on a staircase surrounded by corrupted Pokemon. The group’s leader stands in the background.
This is the last image Willow recovered from the corrupted folder. We don’t know when or where this image was taken, but we DO know that these people are #TeamGORocket. All loading screens will soon display this image to warn all Trainers. Stay tuned. pic.twitter.com/Kza41gzQJz
