Pokemon Go has posted an image showing a member of Team Rocket is photobombing the image to tease a Team Rocket event.

Last weekend, Pokemon had organised Pokemon Go Chicago fest 2019 for four days featuring rare Pokemon and a special research quest involving the mythical Pokemon Jirachi.

I think this is a teaser to something coming from TheSilphRoad

As part of the fest’s event, players need to find Pokemon by using a relatively new feature of AR+ camera. When player a snapshot of their Pokemon using the AR+ camera feature, a Pokemon will occasionally photobomb them and appear in the shot. For the fest, Players had given a task to track several photobombing Pokemon to awake Jirachi from its sleep.

However, near the end of each day, Pokemon weren’t the only one to photobomb, Team Rocket members were also photobombing the shots. While many players assumed that this was just an Easter egg, but a newsletter from official website after the event’s end hinted that it could be a sign of things to come.
