Rocket team duo Jessie and James re-appeared in Pokémon Go with their Meowth balloon during an event in the new Pokémon movie, Jungle Secrets. Now, Niantic has confirmed that the classic duo will continue to appear even after the event ends on December 17.
There is no specific reason for them to continue after the event, but Niantic probably wanted to extend the time because of their new Dark Pokémon.
This means that after completing the event's Special Survey with the help of Jessie and James, you will not miss the chance to get a Scyther Sombroso or Pinsir Lombroso. All you need to do is click on the Meowth balloon, defeat the duo in battle and save their respective Shadow Pokémon.
You will also still be able to get Jessie and James visuals for free at the store after the event ends on December 17th.
Niantic will continue to keep fans up to date and will let you know when Jessie and James are out of the game again, but for now, you don't have to chase Team Rocket so much after finding your Bright Celebi.
