Pokemon GO players who want to complete all of the late May timed research tasks are going to have to fight their way through Team GO Rocket to do so. The enemy faction of the mobile game is back in a big way and players have some fresh enemies to face off against on their way to earning encounters with the Rocket Leaders throughout the Luminous Legends Y event.
The two-week long late May event in Pokemon GO is full of bonuses, features, and exciting rewards and challenges. To get the most out of the festivities, trainers are definitely going to want to dedicate some portion to time to challenging Rocket Grunts. As always, the difficulty level for each of the Rocket Grunt encounters ranges a bit, but players can get ahead of the curve by doing some quick homework to prepare for the battles.
Each GO Rocket grunt battle always kicks off with a bit of dialogue from the baddie that gives players a hint about which type of Pokemon they're about to battle. Players who want to make sure they bring the perfect counter roster into each battle can use the following guide to match up the lines of dialogue with the possible enemy rosters to help avoid unnecessary wipes that can lead to blowing through valuable Revives and Potions...

There are obviously a ton of different Grunts that players can run into and a lot of variety for how each of those encounters can play out, so trainers should be ready for anything when they challenge an enemy. Just be sure to take careful note of the dialogue that leads into the fight and try to optimize the counter roster to take advantage of the type weaknesses that could be exposed during the battle.
In the coming weeks, players should learn a lot more about what other events are on the way throughout the final weeks of the the Season of Legends. Be sure to check back in the near future for more Pokemon GO strategy guides, news, and updates. Until then, good luck out there, trainers!
