Team GO Rocket Event was an event in Pokémon GO. It also featured the GO Fest Weekly Challenge: Battle Timed Special Research.[1][2]

Also during the event, a Pokémon Spotlight Hour featuring Zubat happened.

Features

During this event Team GO Rocket Balloons could appear in a three-hour window instead of six-hour (from 00:00 to 02:59, 03:00 to 05:59 and so on), thus Trainer had a chance to encounter 8 balloons a day.
