Why are Jessie and James leaving Pokemon GO? The true answer is still unknown, but many speculate that it could have something to do with new add ons coming to the game in the next update. Speculation of more in-game Team Rocket events and maybe even new legendary Pokemon coming in the next update have fans certainly on edge for what is to come in the next couple of weeks.
Jessie and James first appeared in the Pokemon GO universe on July 9 and instantly began to hatch schemes to take players Pokemon away, as always. The duo appears in-game every six hours, and Pokemon GO players who would interrupt their plans would have to then face them in a Pokemon battle.
Why are Jessie and James Leaving Pokemon Go?
Paired with their iconic Koffing and Ekans Pokemon partners, players would battle Jessie and James for a chance to save their captured Pokemon, or even collect a shiny one too. Shiny Pokemon are extremely rare but absolutely beautiful to be partnered with.
The iconic duo of Jessie and James alongside their Meowth balloon are set to blast off at the speed of light yet again on Sept. 30. It would come as a surprise to no one that the pair will be cooking up a last huge scheme before they depart from the game for who knows how long. No one knows if Jessie and James will rejoin with their Team Rocket counterparts in the future, but one thing is for sure they definitely know how to make an exit.
