This is very interesting! Someone on Twitter also pointed out what appears to be the Team Rocket HQ.

I'm not really expecting much, just like a small (probably post-game) sidequest where you battle a few of them for whatever reason. If they put any significant focus on Team Rocket, that'd take away from the new Ultra Recon Squad, and I doubt that Game Freak would want to do that.

Think they're gonna be retired NPC, maybe having come over from mainland Kanto. Not sure what they're supposed to do in Alola, though.

Welp according to the March leak & recent Riddler leak which have been accurate so far, including this information, we can hopefully look forward to all the other bosses & team members returning, the PWT (a background similar to the BW2 version was shown for a brief second in the Alola Photo Club trailer), the Battle Factory in Festival Plaza (hinted at by Ohmori and Iwao in a recent interview) & new alolan forms (oddish hinted at in the Riddler leak), and Champion Hau.

That Rocket hideout is also Lusamine's mansion. Compare them closely. TR (Rainbow Rocket) taking over Aether & summoning the other teams was also hinted at in the leaks.

Someone freeze me for the next 3 weeks.

I don't know if it's just me seeing this, but I saw one of the grunts holding a masterball. It's really hard to see because it's so small.

I'll also leave this link using both the Chinese leak and the "Things I want for the third version" post.

I'm expecting that as well. It would be good if you can get Mewtwo before battling them because it's the best Pokémon for kicking some Team Rocket butt.

It's just a normal pokéball.

Team Rocket being in the game is a nice touch as is the possibility of an improved Post Game Battle facility.

The Alolan Oddish is very interesting if true. Would all Alolan Gloom evolve into Alolan Vileplume or will they be the only Alolan form with two potential evolutions. The Oddish line were used by Team Rocket in Johto which means they could be used instead of Zubat line and the Leader could have Alolan Vileplume/Bellossom as their ace depending on version.

Do you think it's possible that we might be able to travel to an area of Kanto and that's where we'll encounter Team Rocket? Maybe it'll be like a post game story like the delta episode.

There's a chance they might not be in Alola.

So excited!! Team Rocket is my favorite bad-guy squad. Seeing them in the most recent Pokemon game will be super exciting for me!
As others have mentioned, I'm wondering if their involvement will be for a post game side quest of if they will have some main story-line involvement. Considering that this will be the last Pokemon game on the DS, hopefully GameFreak will go out with a bang and really put their heart(gold) and soul(silver) in this last installment!

Jeez, they really seem like they're pulling out all the stops for this game. With the addition of Team Rocket plus a hideout to explore which will probably tell a small Rocket sub-plot, plus a bunch of additional battles, and possibly might even include some rare pokemon to catch or rescue while in the process. USM really does seem like it's going to have a lot of things to do in it.
I just like that USM is really starting to appear like it is going to be completely packed with content this time around, and I'm also getting the feeling that the post game for USM is actually really going to be worth it.

The previews and reveals for USM this month have been getting me sort of excited for it. I might think about getting the game a few months after its release.

We will find each other there, chasing the fleeting dreams of a land full of beauty and potential."

Sorry but this is rubbish. Team Rocket is a joke and this is clearly more Kanto pandering. Now USUM can never be ten out ten for me because Team Rocket is a down side to these games. If they are the post game then the post game is actually worst than SM and other non-kanto games. So much for ending the generation off with a bang. Very disappointed in Game Freak.

Ouch!

I wouldn't mind seeing Giovanni at least. This makes me happy, because Team Rocket has always been my favorite. They inspired my whole "Reverse Rocket" cringy fanfic stuff....

If you think about it, Aether Paradise is the perfect place for Team Rocket to take over. All of those Pokemon are already there for them. They don't have to break a sweat! {XD} I wonder if this is before or after Lusamine goes completely off the rails, or if Lusamine is even an antagonist in these games.

Team Rocket better go after a legendary pokemon this time. RB was kind of acceptable since they were the first games. However, it was not acceptable that Team Rocket did not aim for a legendary in Yellow, GSC, FRLG & HGSS. There was no excuse for them to not target a legendary.

If Team Rocket pulls another "evil plan with no legendaries involved" then i am done with them and Kanto.
