    A lot of people hated them in DP but I did not mind what they did. It was the fact for some reason they talked in Rhyme all of a sudden. I still think they were funny in BW more during the missions solo

    I like that they are more seriou now. They were cool for a while, but i was tired of them by dp. I really got bored of the grass type pokemon hugging james. they are way better now, but i miss seeing them a lot. i don't want them every episode just more.

    I think they are the same type of funny because of meowth and how serious team rocket got(they cancel each other out)

    I didn't mind them in the D/P series, other than them taking way too much screen time at the league, times they made me laugh. I'm not really a fan of serious of Team Rocket, hoping they return to there comical ways.

    They are worse imo and not as funny anymore.
    They should have left after the end of Johto, they have overstayed on the show for way too long now.

    I don't think there as funny, but i'm glad that there doing something different with them in BW. Team Rocket was getting kinda stale.

    I think they were at their best through Kanto and Johto. They've never been that good since, I don't think, though Hoenn wasn't too bad.

    I agree that they were at their best during kanto and johto. Now their ok, but i sometimes miss the old boss fantasies (although some were...Odd!!. I'm glad we don't have to watch them fail with the same stupid robots every episode, it got really tiring. There are times i miss the old team rocket and other times i wonder how we put up with them for so long.

    Yes because that's what the writers intended when they made TR more competent?

    I will always love Team Rocket. They have gotten serious, so they can't act stupid anymore. I preferred them joking around, I really don't like serious Team Rocket all the much.

    I found TRio to be absolutely hilarious in the OS. They eventually lost their humor and became repetitive until they hit their absolute lowest point during DP. In BW, they aren't funny but they aren't meant to be funny. They are meant to be taken seriously as villains and I love that. BW TRio is the best they have been in a LONG time.

    They were annoying after Johto so I find it good that they change for the better, it was about time.

    They were at their best in Kanto/Orange, a bit worse in Johto, decent in AG, got pointless in DP aside from Jessie's contest development, and BW is the reboot.

    They overstayed their welcome in Hoenn & Sinnoh. They were better in the Original Series.

    Though I miss the humorous side of Team Rocket, and Meowth's arc with the twerps was a breath of fresh air, I've been enjoying the new and improved Team Rocket, they've been great to watch, especially the new motto.

    Most of the time in the R/S/E - D/P/P seasons, they come across to me as if the writers said OH MAN LET'S MAKE TEAM ROCKET DO THE EXACT SAME THING EVERY EPISODE EVEN THOUGH ROCKET ISN'T REALLY RELEVANT TO THE GAMES ANYMORE AND LET'S HAVE THEM RHYME ALL OF A SUDDEN CAUSE THAT'S FUNNY, RIGHT? I don't like how the movies said Team Rocket made Mewtwo, in complete defiance of the games, and how the trio are put in every movie just for the sake of being there. What exactly did they do to justify their appearence in Arceus and the Jewel of Life again?

    They've definetly gotten less funny since DP. I actually haven't seen the beginning of Best Wishes, though I will try to soon. I understand why some people disliked them in AG & DP, since they were really repetitive, but they were also *quite* hilarious. I missed the way they used to be     Spoiler:- Episode Spoiler:
    . Seeing this new, more serious side of TR is cool. I like the fact that we get some "what if"s answered by this new twist of character, but I hope that in time the old TR comes back (or atleast we see a lot more of their humorous sides).

    Its best for them to leave once Best Wishes ends. You can technically say they've been more or less written out of the series already and only make guest appearances.

    Team Rocket needs to go and BW has only assured this for me. The idea of making them serious was fine on paper, but the actual result has ended up killing what made Jesse, James, and Meowth who they are. I dislike BW team rocket more than I do DP team rocket and that shouldn't be possible. Just get rid of them already!

    The only complaint I have is where was the serious side of team rocket in johto?

    This sums up my problem with ditching them like this. The way I see it, a big change like that would merely be to cope with an issue, not to improve the series. The writing team ought to provide real solutions to problems, not just bury them under the rug and slowly degrade the quality of the show.

    Lets say the writers introduce new villains next series. You could make them the comedy, but then what was the point of ditching TR? Or you could use them for serious evil, but then what was the whole point of TR in BW? What hole can new villains fill that TR can't fill better? If they want to get serious, then they need to make TR what they were meant to be, whether its antagonism, humor, or a mixture of both. Not just throw in some new bunch to cover up the mistakes leading to such a decision in the first place. Ya see where I'm going with this?

    They probably planned for them to leave when BW first started to be honest.
