    If that happens then I hope it somehow incorporates the Silph Co. plot from the RBY games. It always bothered me that they skipped that plot from the games in the original Kanto series.

    It would only be fitting if TR meets their end in Kanto too.

    My guess is what they meant by final mission is final mission in Unova.

    If we ever get a real finale (maybe in the filler saga) let's hope they introduce the executives as well. They never really got a chance to introduce them in the DP saga so this would be a good time

    What was that thing Jessie said about Pikachu in the helicopter?

    Anyway, I'm glad this episode today didn't end Team Rocket. I think the writers are getting them out of the way for the rest of Unova and then they'll somehow be incorporated again chasing Ash but still retaining a semi-serious tone.

    Jail would be a nice bet but knowing JJM, they'll probably just break out.

    My ideal battle ever!

    I like the way they ended it where all 5 of them escaped.

    The thing is, I don't think they DID say they're interested in going after Pikachu again. We'll have to wait for subs to be sure, but I think they (just Jessie, actually) were just saying to Giovanni that Pikachu truly IS powerful; they were just wanting to have some vindication, basically telling ther boss "See? That thing was a worthy target for all those years after all!"

    Also, "it can only mean one thing"? That's what you said about them going back to white uniforms and you were wrong about that, remember?

    And you're all forgetting that we already saw the writers try to write TR like Shudo did - in the gap between Castelia and Nimbasa - and they failed horribly. With this current batch of writers, they can only manage one extreme or the other.
    That's a subjective opinion; I never had much of a problem with how they were portrayed in those episodes.

    YES. If they were going back to pre-BW mode, why stay WITH Giovanni and Dr. Zager, the people who contribute most to keeping them serious, back to Kanto?

    This is Team Rocket's finale, just as advertised. I doubt it's their final appearance, but it's the nail in the coffin that they're being written off the show, NOT sticking around in any way.

    The Litwick one in particular was amazing.

    It's a shame that my hype for the TR vs TP two-parter has only risen now. I'd love to have seen how that ended with Giovanni.

    Just a thought: what if we get a Housou special dealing with Team Rocket's end in Kanto, like we did with Brock after he left?

    THAT would explain why this finale wasn't as conclusive for the characters as people expected it to be.

    OK, I found a translation for Jessie's line on a Japanese site, and it basically just amount to "That Pikachu truly is a very special Pokemon", with James saying "Yeah..."

    That's it. NOTHING about what Team Rocket may want to do. It's also spoken very softly and dramatically, like an end line rather than foreshadowing anything.

    Yah, it will be up in the air for a while what they are going to do next. I'm betting they'll show up at the end of the Best Wishes series finally blasting them off again giving Ash the next idea where to travel toXD Just ideas. I hope we get some foreshadowing soon though, dying to know. I'm one of those few who is hoping they'll return back to being slightly comical.

    We also know from the next batch of episodes that they're not in them at all. The writers wrote them off for now because the show is gearing up for the Unova league and we don't need to see them for a while.

    I am now getting the assumption 2013 will see the return of TR and Giovanni for a real finale by the end of a generation. How much you guys want to bet TR's finale will be in Kanto, the region that started it all?
    Ahahahaa, well atleast your predictions are still crazier then ever, i think you need to give in on this one, their is no way team rocket is going to be written off the show.

    God they better not go back to normal, second they start blasting off again I'm skipping what ever part of the episode they are in.

    The only good thing about TR going back to Kanto is that they have access to their old pokemon again.

    Good point, we may very well see their old Pokemon return before they're written off.
