Team Rocket Attacks (Japanese: 侵略のロケット団) was a villain event in Pokémon Masters EX. It tied into the second part of the Johto chapter of the Villain Arc, featuring battles against the Giovanni and the Team Rocket executives. It was one of the Johto villain events, the other being Rocket Execs Assemble.

During this event, players could earn vouchers and Ho-Oh Crystals from battles against Ariana that could be redeemed in the shop for rewards, including a power boost for Silver and Ho-Oh that would give them additional tiles on their sync grid. Obtaining 2,000 vouchers would reward players with a medal. All battles could be challenged an unlimited number of times except Daily Extreme Battle 1, which could only be challenged once per day.

This event featured the Battle Challenge, where players were challenged to defeat a team of strong opponents. Players could complete event missions by clearing these areas with teams using various theme skills, earning medals and other rewards.

All sync pairs with the Johto and Kanto theme skills received a bonus to their Attack, Defense, Sp. Atk and Sp. Def stats when used for this event, with the amount of the bonus varying between areas.

First run

The event first ran from May 30 to June 16, 2022. The "Sygna Suit Ethan Master Fair Scout" gave players an increased chance of recruiting Sygna Suit Ethan and Lugia from the beginning of the event to July 14, 2022. The "Sygna Suit Lyra Master Fair Scout" gave players an increased chance of recruiting Sygna Suit Lyra and Celebi from June 1 to July 14, 2022. The "Sygna Suit Kris Master Fair Scout" gave players an increased chance of recruiting Sygna Suit Kris and Suicune from June 3 to July 14, 2022.

In this run, players could earn Event Vouchers F from battles. Event missions rewarded players with Gems and Battle Points for completing any of these battles a certain number of times, and the Battle Challenge mission rewards included a Tech and a Support Move Candy Coin.

Additionally, the music and artwork on the title screen were different than usual. For the duration of the event, a splash screen depicting Sygna Suit Ethan & Lugia, Sygna Suit Lyra & Celebi, and Sygna Suit Kris & Suicune appeared upon starting up the game. Starting from May 19, 2022 and lasting for the duration of the event, the title screen art depicted Sygna Suit Giovanni & Nidoking alongside Archer, Ariana, Petrel, and Proton, and the background music was Decisive Battle! (Giovanni) (Pokémon Masters EX Version).

Second run

The event reran from December 9, 2022 to January 1, 2023. The "Sygna Suit Leaf Poké Fair Scout" gave players an increased chance of recruiting Sygna Suit Leaf and Venusaur for the duration of the event, and Sygna Suit Leaf's sync grid was expanded with new grid tiles that could be unlocked at move levels 2, 4, and 5.

In this run, players could earn Event Vouchers O from battles, and the amount of vouchers received as battle rewards was decreased. In addition, the mission rewards were changed to only award Gems and medals.

If the player had already received Silver and Ho-Oh's power boost, exchanging for it in the shop again would reward the player with a 3★ Power-Up.

Third run

The event reran again from August 18 to 28, 2023. The "Sygna Suit Kris Master Fair Scout" gave players an increased chance of recruiting Sygna Suit Kris and Suicune from August 16 to September 15, 2023. The "Sygna Suit Lyra Master Fair Scout" gave players an increased chance of recruiting Sygna Suit Lyra and Celebi from the beginning of the event to September 15, 2023. The "Sygna Suit Ethan Master Fair Scout" gave players an increased chance of recruiting Sygna Suit Ethan and Lugia from August 20 to September 15, 2023.

In this run, players could earn Event Vouchers F from battles, and the amount of vouchers received as completion rewards was increased drastically. Everything else was the same as the previous run.
