    Okay lets get a little few things straight. You can call them forced, but aren't similar "stupid" jokes being done with Cameron? Of course comedy is forced. Most of the comedy in Dp was over exagerated comedy anyway. Sieriously, look at all those faces. So yeah, in a sense it was forced...But I didn't find their saddness about things being forced. It just feels overdone because we've known them for so long.

    which is why the change was needed in Best wishes. BUT. I still liked their old personifcations better. They feel useless and their job could be taken by many other "newer" people. I like the older ones better.

    I never said they were "brilliant". I do think that they had good character development. Better than Misty did. But this isn't about Misty xD
    Their humor appealed to me, and I don't get why people can't understand that. Like was said earlier, we all have different senses of humor. And said "repetitive act" is still ongoing, might I point out, just much more elaborated and built up.

    They were realistic in OS and that helped us to connect with them. Cartoons may not be real people but if you give them realistic traits, it is easy to root for them. I found them realistic in Kanto. Their struggles were realistic, their personalities were realistic and that made it easy to sympathize with them.

    So you don't like BW TR and yet your profile picture has BW TR on it. I don't get that......

    thats going a bit to far man. You can have an avatar of the anime because it looks funny or cool, even if you despise it. Its just a profile picture...

    I don't think it's going to far at all. I just am curious as to why that is.

    *sighs* this has gotten WAAAAY out of hand. If you look back on page 13-14 ish, I clearly said that I DO like them still (they're still my favorite characters), but not nearly as much as I used to. And most of the reason why they're still my favorites it because of how they were in older gens.

    They honestly didn't change that much in AG and DP from the OS. And their struggles and pasts were more elaborated on back then because we were still getting to know them. Their pasts haven't changed; remember how Jessibelle returned in BF?

    I don't think it's going way too out of hand. I am just curious why you chose a BW picture of them instead of a DP or AG one. That's all. Don't understand the problem with that honestly.

    And I don't understand how you can't see the change TR went through between OS and AG.

    Last week it was the picture from the "Here Comes Team Rocket" 2nd edition trading card. Before that it was DP Jessie. I change it sometimes.

    Well, how about how in AG or maybe mid-late Johto, they became obnoxious characters and lost all the charm they had in Kanto and the OI. My opinion of course.

    Obnoxious because their act got old? If such is the case, then I suppose you dislike Ash as well? No offense intended.

    No, obnoxious because their jokes were lame and they tried to be funny but instead they came off looking like jokes.

    And uh.... NO! I like Ash and I never found Ash's act to get old. In fact, they tried something different with him each saga (OS, he was the new trainer who grew into his own, AG, he was the mentor to May and the veteran of the group and DP, he was at his peak as a trainer, and in BW, it feels like they are trying something different with him). So yeah, Ash never got old like TR did.

    Oookay then.

    It's inevitable that there'll be quite a few posts expressing opinions on the way BW Team Rocket currently acts, and that's fine. However, please keep in mind that this thread primarily serves to discuss how they'll behave and what they'll be up to in the future, or more specifically in Episode N. Comparisons to and mentions of OS-DP!TR are mostly misplaced, as are absurd accusations towards people who prefer either serious!TR or silly!TR. This isn't a debate topic, so please stop poking each other as to why you prefer either over the over.

    Thanks~

    Run for your lives.

    A mix between silly and serious would be perfect IMO. Add some of their old Pokemon and TRio will be really entertaining

    It won't work. Whiplashing between acting serious and then getting stupid as soon as the blasting off starts will look very awkward, and nobody is going to be satisfied by it.

    they already kind of did that in sinnoh hoenn and Kanto. its just they leaned more towards funny then the few times they were serious. :/

    You can't compare Hoenn and Sinnoh to Kanto. The writing style and characterization is completely different, not just for Team Rocket but for just about every character.

    There really is a marked difference between Shudo's run and after he left, just saying.

    But they're going to do what they always did from OS to DP; snatch Pikachu with some mecha and then blast off when Ash beats them. They're quite predictable.

    I wish they could've kept their serious personalities in this saga. At least then we might have seen new schemes instead of the same old stuff they always did when they were "funny." And come to think of it, I hate using that word because it implies that they were always humorous. I'll just call them "old Team Rocket" when they goof off.

    ...when I'm providing examples upon how they've switched between serious and comical, yes I can. They've done that in all the regions. Its just more balanced in kanto, and much more funny attributed in later seasons (despite the first season having some of the best comedy out of all them.)

    Actually it could work just because you don't think it would. Remember Kanto TRio? The writers won't just 'whiplash' completely in the middle of BW. TRio could get missions from Giovanni to tail Ash, N, catch Pikachu, defeat Plasma, find legendary Pokemon, steal trainers Pokemon... 'Nobody is going to be satisfied with it' just because you wouldn't be doesn't mean everyone else in the world who watches this show feels the same way. Your opinions aren't facts

    Are they? We know the balloon and blasting off are back but that's it. I think we're in for a mix of the new and old.

    Why do I think that? Because they're bound to still have that promotion that effected their skills when Best Wishes started. Also we've seen that the writers can write episodes without them so we're not going to get them trying to catch every Pokémon of the day.

    I am not sure if this was posted on the serebii forums yet (or anywhere else regarding the N arc) so ill put it here first....please move it if its in the wrong spot

    I believe its a short clip for one of the future episode where N meets Ash and the gang (i think its quite a long preview)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbtBWLGyd8M

    -I do not know why, but N's eyes kind of freak me out for some reason
    -I hope Ash mentions about his Aura ability

    I doubt they're gonna mention an ability that was only in the movie and didn't get brought up during the DP lucario episodes.

    Aura was mentioned several times throughout dp, with it being a plot point between Ash & Riolu during a pokemon ranger 2 parter
