The Team Rocket Balloon, which has been teased in promotional material from Niantic for some time now, is now available. On release, the balloon was available to Lv.40 players...

...and was later opened to players Lv.35 and over.

Currently, it is unknown what the final minimum level will be to encounter the balloon. Beyond that, we also don't know all of the specifics of this feature yet. Thus far, it is known that the Team Rocket Balloon appears on the map and can be interacted with to initiate a single Team Rocket battle.

Some players have reported that they need to zoom out the camera to see/interact with the balloon, and it is confirmed that players will receive Team Rocket Radar Pieces from these battles.
