So, if you are hit with the issue, rest assured as the balloons will be back once the developers have included them. However, aside from the current situation, there are certain cases when Rocket Balloons may not spawn. Here is all you need to know about the current situation and spawn the balloons if the problem occurs at a later date.
Pokémon Go Rocket Balloon, Leaders, and Grunts Not Appearing or Spawning
To fix the Pokémon Go Rocket Balloon not appearing or spawning at the current date, you don’t need to do anything. It’s a move from the developers to root out certain issues associated with Team GO Rocket encounters. Once the issue has been patched, the feature will be restored and you should be battle Team Rocket again and complete challenges.
Rocket Balloon are not the only things that affected by the current situation with Niantic Labs, you may also not find Leaders and Grunts. This is a worldwide situation and entire global player base of the game are affected.
Here is what Niantic support said on Twitter, “Trainer, while we investigate errors associated with Team GO Rocket encounter, they will be temporarily unavailable. We’ll update here with more information. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
So, if the Pokémon Go Rocket Balloon, Leaders, or Grunts are not appearing, you just need to watch the Twitter thread for update.
Fix Pokémon Go Rocket Balloon Not Appearing After the Current Issue
Aside from the current situation, there are several players who have been struggling to get the Rocket Balloon to spawn from time to time. If that’s the case with you, there are several things you can try such as:
Ensure you have caught the daily spawn. If you have not caught the daily spawn and it does not respawn when you open the game, it can prevent the Rocket Balloon from appearing.
If the Rocket Balloon is not spawning, quite the app and restart it. The balloon should appear. If the Balloon still does not appear, restart the phone and that should fix the issue. If you are still facing the issue, know that sometimes it takes a few reboot of the game before you can get it to work.
If the above solutions have failed to spawn the balloon, try fighting a pokéstop grunt as that’s known to reset the spawn and the balloons should appear.
