Team Go Rocket's grunts first appeared in the game on July 22, 2019, invading Pokestops for 24 hours with Shadow Pokemon.
After that was stopped suddenly, they reappeared 3 days later and more frequently, along with a special field research quest.
As a publicity stunt by Niantic, on July 27 2019, they invaded most of new York's pokestops, as well as hacking the game's social media, spreading information on who they were and about Giovanni's ambitions.
The next day, they claimed the New York invasion was a decoy and invaded every Pokestop from 4-5 pm.
They extended their roster several times.
