Actually, blasting off doesn't meant they're funny. To some people, it's downright annoying, so it depends on the person watching.
but let's not forget that they are part of the main cast;
The talk about "un-canonizing" Zager made my brain break a little.
No. You can't un-canonize something that has already been aired on the show, for dozens upon dozens of episodes at that. If he never shows up again, that's one thing, but it doesn't make him "non-canon". That's like saying Brock is now non-canon, or Paul, or May, or any other character who has been dropped from the series. It's completely ridiculous.

Point; if you exist on the show; your canon.
someone awesome was nice enough to link me the "dressed for jess success" episode and i want to say it's now one of my favorite TR episodes. them being relaxed for a change makes me happy. so yes, more episodes like these should happen but i doubt it will happen.
Shipper pandering, the outcome helping Jessie cheat to get into the Grand Festival...
Nevermind that, your posts are confusing me. You keep talking about not liking BW Team Rocket, but then you did like them, then you thought they were okay, now you want them to go back to being 'relaxed' again. What is it?
When I said "relaxed" I don't mean act like idiots and make them blast off. I mean I'd like to see one episode where Team Rocket isn't doing *any* missions or trying to capture pikachu/treasure/being jealous of team whatever etc.
In other words, not actually doing anything?Originally Posted by Gothitelle K;15713154

Those episodes always end up being the worst ones, when characters in them are just there. This show does not work when it tries to be slice-of-life.
I haven't seen Episode N in great detail since they haven't been dubbed or subbed yet, so I can't say too much on the way TRio are currently being written.
I really liked having a serious Team Rocket at the start of Best Wishes/season 14. But after two full seasons I'm of the opinion that the two writing styles should be mixed.
-TRio are much more entertaining when they're the comedy of the episode. Jessie and James aren't interesting at all when they speak in a monotone robotic voice.
-TRio traditions are fun. I want to see them make humorous alterations to their motto, I want to see them blast off, and I want to see them with ridiculous giant robots (or no robots at all. No simple lame robots please :/)
-Incompetency can add to the humor, but I don't think they should be so useless that they don't add to the plot. Having the ability to infiltrate Plasma bases and stir up serious trouble while blasting off is fine by me!
-The thing BW did very well - don't let TRio appear in every episode. There are a good number of fillers in BW that are enjoyable purely because they didn't lazily use TRio as a plot device. TRio-focused fillers, or TRio-absent fillers only please!
i thought Everyone happy that Team rocket Blasting of again
Welcome Gen VI
the mascot of pokemon franchise
The people who want serious Rocket can't take them too seriously with the "comedic" and overdone blast offs, while the people who want the blast offs can't enjoy Team Rocket because they aren't funny.
So is a lose-lose situation for (almost) everybody.
I watched the Mareep episode and I said that Team Rocket is in funny version but with some differences:
-In DP Team Rocket was funny and it was made almost idiots and they are funny all the time. Now it isn't, and for the major past are more serious but not the level of serious that they are in DP.
-The most funnier memeber of the Team Rocket group was Meowth. Makes sense because Inuko Inuyama's complaints were the bigger ones and remember that Inuyama isn't used to serious character like the other two are.
-When they are blasting opff, they aren't saying something humourous each time. This is like Kanto where they are just saying Team Rocket blasting off again.
-Team Rocket resembles more the TR in the original series. I remembered form Kanto that although TR were funny there it isn't the level of series like DP.
This is the funny version of Team Rocket. But although they are the funny version, they are the serious part of their funny personality.
Team Rocket are now having a "mission" like in the BW series more than in the DP series. In the DP series they were catching anything who interfere them if they like catching something at all. In BW now they are having a "serious" mission that they are doing. Except that we have two differences:
-The mission wasn't directed by Zager or Giovanni like the rest of BW.
-The main objective of the mission isn't catching legendaries or defeating Team Plasma. Their mission now is catching the Pikachu whose power exceeds the evolutionary level, who is, like no oine surprise, Ash's Pikachu. Notice that now Team Rocket is always intended to capture Pikachu and they are using other pokemon as a method to attract Pikachu.
To surprise to many people, they are having a mission now: what happens is that they are intented to get one Pokemon and not legendary: Ash's Pikachu.
I think that:
-Wobbuffet will return to the show before July.
-They are going to be more funnier each time with some exceptions.
But... (yeah, they aren't expected to leave)
-I think that they aren't going to appear in every episode (in Episode N they aren't) until at least mid-2014. Including if they are like the DP shelves. For one reason that could be somehow difficult to understand: if Team Rocket isn't in every episode, OLM don't need to poay them for the roles of main characters that I know that they are expensive. If TR don't appear in 40% of episodes, the writers don't need to pay them. It's the same reason that why there's a lot of stocked animation now, why Snivy isn't Servine yet and isn't expected to be until at least the end, why the Leafgue could be a dissapointment for some fans, why there's any past pokemon in the series, the heavy promotion of Dawn's false return and Episode N, and finally why exist Season 2 (the seasons concept was created because for economical reasons some series need to stop in one place before they are continuing, Pokemon take the concept from there).
And although unrelated, I think that Axew is in the main cast by contract. If there's any contract, Axew has stopped being a mascot pokemon some time ago.
