Pokémon GO Team GO Rocket Grunt Lineup Guide (May 2021)

Which Pokémon Do They Have For Luminous Legends?

by Dean James


Pokémon GO introduced the villainous Team GO Rocket into the game a couple years ago, with the structure of how they are handled mostly staying about the same in the time since. There are Team GO Rocket Grunts scattered around that you can battle, which are broken down by Pokémon type. From there, you can earn parts to get a Rocket Radar and then take on one of the three Team GO Rocket leaders. Sometimes this even allows you to take on the head boss Giovanni as well as part of special events. The Pokémon that these Grunts use rotate over time and the latest comes alongside the Luminous Legends event in May 2021. As a result, we have compiled a list of each of the Team GO Rocket Grunts and the Pokémon in their lineup for May 2021.
