Pokemon Go Now Lets Players Dress Up As Team Rocket

Team Rocket has shown up in Pokémon Go with a brand new scheme for ruling the world: rather stealing everyone’s Pokémon, they’ll steal your money instead by offering up their team clothing as premium cosmetic clothing.

Now, by offering up some of your Pokécoins, players can dress as either the vintage Team Rocket or the new Rainbow Rocket introduced in last year’s Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Here are the prices for the Pokemon Go Team Rocket costume:

Male Avatar

— Team Rocket Hat – 100 Coins
— Team Rocket Top – 400 Coins
— Team Rainbow Rocket Top – 400 Coins
— Team Rocket Gloves – 50 Coins
— Team Rocket Pants – 200 Coins
— Team Rocket Boots – 200 Coins
— Team Rainbow Rocket Boots – 200 Coins

Female Avatar

— Team Rocket Hat – 100 Coins
— Team Rocket Top – 400 Coins
— Team Rainbow Rocket Top – 400 Coins
— Team Rocket Gloves – 50 Coins
— Team Rocket Skirt – 100 Coins
— Team Rocket Belt – 100 Coins
— Team Rainbow Rocket Belt – 100 Coins
— Team Rocket Boots – 200 Coins
— Team Rainbow Rocket Boots – 200 Coins

All in all, male avatars will need to shell out 1550 coins in order to dress up as a Team Rocket member, while female avatars will need 1650 to do the same. It’s not a bad deal and they certainly look great, but leave it to Team Rocket to force people to pay just to dress up as them.

Of course, there’s the option of paying by using the 50 coins you get per day whenever you’re holding a gym, but that would require you to save up for at least 31 days and that would mean you wouldn’t be able to buy anything else useful such as incubators in the meantime.

Also, no, you can’t make your male avatar cross dress like James does in the anime.

In related news, today marks the final day for Pokémon Go’s Valentine’s Day Event. It  will be followed by a Dratini-focused event that arrives on Feb. 24.
