From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
The Mysterious Component (Japanese: ふしぎなパーツ Mysterious Parts) is an item in Pokémon GO. Since November 2019, Team GO Rocket Grunts will drop a Mysterious Component upon being defeated. If the player collects six Mysterious Components, they will combine into a Rocket Radar, which can be used to locate and battle Team GO Rocket Leaders.
Professor Willow hypothesized that Mysterious Components are what Team GO Rocket uses to invade PokéStops; however, they appear to have other functions as well. Following the end of GO Fest 2020, a video was posted on Twitter showing the Team GO Rocket Leaders each using a Mysterious Component to communicate with Giovanni.
In Pokémon GO
If the player has collected six Mysterious Components, they will automatically be combined into a Rocket Radar.
|| This appears to be what Team GO Rocket uses to hack PokéStops. Does it have another use?
One Mysterious Component is awarded upon defeating a Team GO Rocket Grunt. If a player already has at least one Rocket Radar on hand, no more Mysterious Components will be awarded until all Rocket Radars are used up.
