As part of Team Rocket’s big debut in Pokemon GO, a small real-life event dedicated to the evil team is being held right now in New York City.
As announced on Twitter and on Facebook, Team Rocket has taken over a large number of Pokestops in New York City. Players in that area have been tasked with liberating the Pokestops from Team Rocket’s control and defeat as many Grunts as they can. It is not known if there will be any special rewards relating to this event.
