So Europe had its first taste of Pokémon GO Fest, in Dortmund, Germany. During the final moments of day one, a hot air balloon appeared on the horizon.

Tthe datamined information hints that Team Rocket grunts will be making their way to Pokemon GO along with the Shadow Pokemon, and players will get an achievement for taking them on (and for purifying the latter). This effect first popped up following last month's Pokemon Go Fest in Chicago. The look stems from a time during Mewtwo's life in which he partnered with the infamous Team Rocket to capture Pokemon and act out other nefarious deeds at the behest of boss Giovanni.

And could Team Rocket finally be en route?

Niantic and the Pokémon Co. released a preview Thursday of the legendary character Mewtwo, who will be sporting some fresh gear in the mobile game.

Dershowitz, the Miami Herald Co. and an independent blogger, Michael Cernovich, sought the unsealing of records in the case. Epstein was arrested on Saturday evening, multiple U.S. media reported , citing law enforcement sources.

Adding more fuel to the fire, Twitter user Chrales discovered mentions of Team Rocket amongst data for update 0.147.1. More recently, players datamining the game found new achievements hinting at battles with Team Rocket foes.

Armored Mewtwo will be available in raids until July 31, which is good as the summertime is a good time for Pokemon hunting. For those of you who aren't based in that time zone, don't worry: This release date and time can be altered on where you are in the world.

From July 10 to July 30, the mech-looking antagonist will pop up randomly in five-star raids across the globe, ready to take on hardened trainers in a psychic battle of epic screen-tapping proportions.
