A Team GO Rocket Leader (Japanese: GOロケット団リーダー GO Team Rocket Leader) is a type of Pokémon Trainer in Pokémon GO. They are high ranking members of Team GO Rocket serving under Giovanni.

Team GO Rocket Leaders can be found at PokéStops designated as Team GO Rocket Hideouts, which can be located using a Rocket Radar. In battle, unlike Grunts, Leaders will always use their Protect Shield against the player's first two Charged Attacks. Once defeated, the Leader will leave the PokéStop and abandon one of the Shadow Pokémon used.

Trainer list

Team GO Rocket Leaders use teams of three Shadow Pokémon in a Trainer Battle, each independently and randomly selected from separate pools. Green-colored cells denote the Pokémon that may possibly be encountered during the bonus challenge, during which eligible Pokémon have a chance of becoming Shiny as denoted by the   icon.
