Honestly I prefer Lickitung over Wobbuffet, and if she still had it Maybe she would have more of a fighting chance? What do you think the show would be like?

Wabbuffet is quite strong, when it uses counter. I think Wabbuffet is funnier than Lickitung with more personality.

Lickitung wouldn't be too thrilled, didn't you watch the end of that episode? It was so happy to not be Jessie's anymore.

I think Wobbuffet could pwn Lickitung with Counter or Mirror Coat. And besides, Wobbuffet can be used for comic relief unlike Lickitung, which I couldn't see being funny in any way.

Lickitung would have become more well know and it would get the Pre Evo it deserves.

pre evo's are cool most are useless but their are cool for contests and a great additon to a weird team.

How would a Liki Evolve look its already a pretty big pokemon.

I like Wobbuffet. My biggest complaint is that Team Rocket isn't smart enough to use him more often. Team Ash couldn't get a hit in if they used it properly. Of course they do this so Ash does win, but... Come on, Team Rocket! Get with it!

That and I hate when they mix up Counter and Mirror Coat. -_-;; But I think Wobbuffet is funny and I enjoy its zaniness.

Lickitung wasn't entirely funny IMO. They never gave it a real personality like Wobbuffet. That and it made the people at Pokemopolis jobs far too easy... ^^;

Considering how Soonansu bores the heck out of me (no, I honestly don't find it funny. ._.; ) I guess I would prefer Musashi to have a Beroringa. For some reason the long tongued pokemon always appeared cute to me, not to mention it's lick attack took down almost anything Satoshi and them threw at it.

Team Rocket has been stronger with Wobbuffet, in my opinion. He has given Team Rocket a lot of wins, big and small- over Chikorita in his first episode, vs. B&C's ratticate in "The Fortune Hunters", over the bullies' fighting pokemon in "Wobba-Palooza", over Articuno (!) in "Freeze Frame", over an arcanine in "The Stolen Stones", over golem in "The Wayward Wobbuffet", over Delibird in "Dues and Don'ts", and probably a few more that I'm forgetting. Even when he hasn't won, he's done some pretty good counter moves, like in "Address Unown", "Around the Whirlpool", and "Pokeblock Stock and Berry". He's had more victories and good fights overall than the rest of Team Rocket's team, past and present.

Lickitung, by contrast, can only claim a couple of victories- a 3/4 victory over Misty in "Princess vs. Princess", over the ledybas in "The Whistle Stop", and over farfetch'd in "A Farfetch'd Tale". Except for its first episode, none of those victories were all that spectacular either.

Plus, Wobbuffet has a much funnier personality. :D :D :D

I pretty much prefer Sonansu over Beroringa. It brings back the kind of comedy relief the show's been sort of lacking nowadays.

If she still had Lickitung she could give it to her boss as a rare pokemon.

See this is what i don't get Team rocket always want rae pokemon But look at team rockets pokemon team and ones they have had yet they don't give them 2 their boss Geovarnie.
Lickitung:Rare
Chimecho: Very Rare
pre-evo of Mr Mime: Well it must b extremly rare as Mr Mime is very rare.
Seviper: Kinda rare
Dusktox: Not that rare but i gess the boss would like one still.

I miss Lickitung as well D: Then again, it is one of my favourite Kanto Pokemon...

However, I think Lickitung never really got a chance to show how good it was at battling because Arbok hogged the spotlight pretty much 24/7. Now that Wobbufett doesn't need to battle to get a cameo and just pops out of its ball, it gets the most screentime of Jessie's Pokemon.
It's kinda funny that Jessie traded her shafted Pokemon for a Pokemon that is now one of, if not the most recognizable Team Rocket Pokemon [that's right...even more-so than Meowth].

I remember watching the episode where Jessie traded her Lickitung for Wobbufett...it happened to suddenly and unexpectedly...I was totally shocked as Lickitung was my favourite Team Rocket Pokemon at the time ;o;

Old wobby would be alot stronger if jesse used him right. But she hardly pays mind to him now.

No, team Rocket will be weak no matter what pokemon they get. lickitung got beat many times, and wouldn't survive from one of pikachu's many thunderbolts. IMO, wobuffet is better. Jessie just has to use him right, but she won't. All she knows how to do now is to occasionaly tell it to use a little counter attack here and there.

I don't know. Then again, Lickitung couldn't be Meowth's best man.

And I hate comic relief.

I like Wobuffet. I never thought Lickitung was anything special so Jessie's better off without it. Besides, Wobbufett is funnier than Lickitung anyway.

Lickitung is better to me because it's just cool XD but lost a match against Psyduck in it's forth (i think) match against misty but last time i checked it used lick which is a dark attack and has an advantage over the little water/psychic pokemon. It also has stomp which it uses later in over battles so why didn't it use it then? because Jessie's to stupid to use it right.
Wobuffet however is just funny. That's it. But looking at Team Rockets pokemon they got well rare pokemon.
A TALKING Meowth- how rare can you get
Arbok- pretty rare
Lickitung- very rare (i've never seen one in any of my games except pokemon silver.)
Wobuffet- Rare (except that place in Johto who practically would marry them if they could)
Seviper- (Hoenn pokemon which barely any of Team Rocket have so) Rare
Dustox- the most common pokemon they have/had
Weezing- pretty rare
Victorebell- pretty rare
Cacnea- evolve it and it will be rare
Chimecho- very rare
Manene- ultra rare (in my opinion)
I listed every pokemon Team Rocket have/had and it just shows that if they only kept one pokemon they could be executives.

Two things wrong with that:
1) Back then, Lick was still a normal type attack.
2) Psyduck is not a psychic type.

If Jessie still had Lickitung...hmm, it would follow the route of Dustox (as in, not used a lot, and when it is it would only lose anyway. But then again, every Team Rocket Pokemon has to lose one way or another). And we would be missing a gem of today's episodes, Wobbuffet.

The poor thing would of had its tongue cut off by Sceptiles leaf blade Luckily the thing got a better trainer and we are not sick of it like the rest of TR. Especially that pitiful Victreebel and Cacneas copy routine.

Lickitung was fun to have, but Wobuffet is a much better Pokemon! I'd rather see a blue blob than a pink blob any day :D.

Nah, Wobbuffet is more funnier! Him coming out of the pokeball all the time always makes me laugh! XD

Well, I like Sonansu more than Beroringa, but alas, it really doesn't matter. To respond to the original question, Musashi will never have a fighting chance; she will continue to lose no matter what pokemon she has. Right now all that matter is which is funnier. And Sonansu wins that category in my opinion. Nothing that Beroringa did stands out in my mind, other than it eating all of Musashi's stuff in the Girl's Day episode. =/

I liked lickitung no doubt about it but the change happened and they even had the episode where duplica came back in johto with her mini dit to show mirror coat on wobbufett as well with both of those attacks (counter,and Mirror coat) they cant lose
