How to Unequip a Rocket Radar in Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go has a feature that lets you battle members of Team Rocket. As you battle the regular grunts, you gain components. Once you have six components, you are able to combine them and create a Rocket Radar that lets you battle team leaders.

These team leader battles are a little tougher than the regular grunt battles. There is also a Super Rocket Radar that lets you battle Giovanni, the Team Rocket Boss.

With the introduction of Team Rocket balloons, it’s very likely that you will battle a team leader or the boss if one of your radars are equipped. However, you may not want to battle one of these bosses yet, but you may still want to battle the regular grunts.

Fortunately it’s possible to unequip a Rocket Radar in Pokemon Go so that you don’t need to engage in these tougher battles just yet.
