    Default Episode N - Team Rocket Speculation

    Team Rocket returning to be funny!!! EDIT: Well, not exactly funny

    With the latest manga scan, we see Team Rocket blasting off again like in DP and earlier sagas. Dogasu (opinions aside) confirmed that the scans mention blasting off.

    The thread isn't for bashing Team Rocket for being funny (A opinion of dislike is compoletely fine).

    I created this thread to know the possible speculation to comment the causes that the writers has decided to returning being funny again after his BW change make them serious. If you think that the audience (the kids in Japan >>>>> some club of users) don't like serious TR, the VAs don 't like serious TR.

    This thread is to show the "special circunstances" that caused TR to return being funny.

    Edit: 10/2/2013.

    Many people are almost bashing the users who like Team Rocket during AG and DP. Remember, exist many people (and I think that more than 60% of the audience who regularly watch pokemon prefer funny Team Rocket as opposed to serious Team Rocket, specially in Japan.

    Please, respect the opinions of people who liked Team Rocket in AG and DP.

    Edit: 20/2/2013:
    This is a Team Rocket thread. Not a post-Episode N thread. If you want to talk what Ash and co. will do after Episode N there's a thread for it.

    I found them so much more interesting this region. The subway two parter were the best TR episodes ever in my opinion.

    Not it isn't. They haven't been serious since Kanto and that was a long time ago. So it might be a bad taste in some older fans mouths but for me it's not. They should have been replaced years ago.

    My ideal battle ever!

    They were serious in Kanto for only one episode... their debut episode, EP002! after that they became idiots. in EP003 a Caterpie beat them! D:

    They're cool serious or funny imo, it was a change of pace in Unova, now it's time to return to their roots, hopefully they balance serious + funny.

    I don't see how is AG TR different from DP TR? Jessie pursued her contest dream but she failed miserably in AG, I think that's the only difference, to me they were the same kind of dumb.

    Meowth's boss fantasies started in late Johto during the Delibird ep.

    They still had their moments of competence in later Kanto episodes though.

    I think they're both goofy and serious, seeing as they use those forcefield boxes still, instead of machines. I know that doesn't make them serious, but they used them when they were and if they returned to being full goofy, why would they not go back to their old capture methods?

    Not really a fact that they were boring when they being serious.

    Bonnie: Hey, Clauncher, could you do me a favour and marry my brother?
    Clauncher: What? I can understand the old man's senility, but this is just annoying.

    Bonnie: Come on, Dedenne! I want that Gym Badge!
    Clauncher: If only this wasn't a kids show.

    Because the rest of the show has gotten a technology upgrade in BW. Nevermind the fact they have a robot in episode 1.

    DP says otherwise.

    This thread's not going to end well. Everyone's just going to get angry at each other and 15 pages later it'll get locked.

    The two are incompatible. When you try to combine them you end up with a complete fiasco like what we saw in the post-Castelia filler hell.

    That's a sort of mecha that they usually have to capture Pokemon in Best Wishes to me, but still, they seem like they're serious/incompetent to me. But why would they go from Robot in one episode, to that forcefield box in the next? I think it's because they're sort of mixing the two types of Team Rockets together.

    They're using the laser cage in the next episode because the upgraded balloon (which, I admit, I do like the design of) is the robot.

    At least goofy TR had personality and humerous moments. Serious TR was like watching a lifeless version of them. But I do appreciate the experiment the writers did with them...I just don't think it resulted well, but that's just me.

    Ya but at least they were doing what they were supposed to be doing for once -_-. If they start blasting off every episode again I will probably rage quit -_-.

    lol I'm also wondering if they'll blast off every episode again.

    Me too. They better not be in every episode especially if they are jokes again like they were in DP. It will take away time from the other important characters and BW has proved TRio doesn't have to be in every episode.

    Wobbuffet and Mime Jr. still being no where in sight is what is giving me hope that TRio haven't gone back to COMPLETE idiots. Because if they did go back to complete idiots, those 2 would likely come back..... OH WAIT! PLEASE NO! Does anyone else remember that contest they had after Tempest where people got to vote for which Pokémon you wanted to come back the most out of Wobbuffet, Mime Jr. and Dustox? Uh oh.....

    I really hope they jet pack out of there last minute. or if they do blast off it's only temporarily until Giovanni gives them another mission.

    I also think they are a mixture of funny and serious. I think it will be a return to Kanto TRio. Yes, they probably won't be as funny as Kanto TRio but I think we will get some decent comedic moments with them and they will also show their competence and sinister side like they did in early BW. Yes, the balloon is back, yes blasting off is back and yes, TRio being funny is back but we don't know what kind of humor it is. We shouldn't declare the return of the DP TRio just yet.

    Humor is subjective. I found them to be funny up until Johto but then they became too repetitive. DP was when they were at their worst in my opinion. Their script was terrible. I thought their dialogue was corny, I hated the rhyming, they came off as weak, they lacked the cool factor of the Kanto TR. I found them to be much more interesting this region. Their plans were better and more well thought out and they actually felt like how Team Rocket agents should be.

    I guess this proves that if you complain hard enough that you will get what you want.
    I am not saying they made the TRio funny again just because the voice actors wanted it, but without them complaining about it I dont think it would have ever happened.
    Such a shame, I liked the serious TRio
