This was a pretty good episode, though TR breaking Meowth's trance rather quickly seemed very anti-climatic. Also didn't like that bit with Pignite's nose being clogged with Bullet Seeds.
My First Ever Level 100 Team:

If you are one of the 30% that thinks outside the box
and doesn't use ubers, copy and paste this into your signature! (^started by SapphireL!)
But anyways I really loved this episode. Team Rocket were just pros in this one (once again yay!) Tricking the plasma's to leave the hideout was smart. I love how James mentions that Team Rocket has been through Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh when Angie insults Team Rocket. Meowth looked really zombie-ish when he was being controled. I loved the fury swipes animations that they had too. Overall another epic episode that the writers have produced.

Was that the original episode's soundtrack I heard during this episode? It made me smile because I seriously thought they were gonna change the soundtrack.
Even the Genesect scene was kept in, that was a major surprise; I wonder if kids will be wondering why the Genesect made a cameo.

Oh my gosh. I want to punch a wall.
I loved all of Team Rocket in this episode, and it made me like them more than I already did! Clever, smart, and always one step ahead of Team Plasma in every situation.
Colress is insane, but makes me laugh at the right times.
Ash, Iris, Cilan and Pignite scenes.... could have been left out entirely. That was SO pointless. I wanted to screen out loud. Having Charizard there though made me keep my cool.
Although it was sad not to see him do Seismic Toss on Pignite when it clearly looked like he was going to do that move! Trolled so hard. Darn you animators.
This is like the time I watched "Coming Full Festival Circle", when I enjoyed one major part of the episode (Nando VS Zoey) and totally despised the other part (Jessie VS Dawn).
Speaking as someone who isn't a big fan of the AiU series, I really enjoyed this episodes. TR vs TP was great, and it was good to see Ash and Co. play a minor role for a change
I think this episode was better than the last and that was because I loved how Team Rocket Centric it was. We really saw insight into how these two evil organisations have a rivalry and a competitive edge to see who can get one-up on the other. The Meowth and Colress scenes were great and in the end the concentration training worked! (Kinda). As for Colress, it was interesting to see him openly admit he wasn't satisfied in Team Plasma and I hope that has a consequence in later episodes.
This arc gets better and better. On to the next one!
Loves every part of pokemon, loves the movies, the anime and every game, so you could call me fan lol.

Favourite Pokemon: but i like them all
Good episode. It's nice to see an episode focused on Team Rocket, a nice change for once. I do agree that the scenes where Ash and friends helped out Pignite was unneeded.Makes sense for them to appear in the beginning, but after that, not really. Only to be sure that Pikachu appears in every Pokémon episode there is.
So... Much... Mind... Control... Not sure how long I can keep this up. Also I don't really like how Gardevoir was portrayed in the last ep.

Well, the subplot with Ash was riveting.
My God, the anime is terrible.
Pignite gets Bullet Seeds stuck in his nose, so he can't blow flamethrowers and everyone must make a team effort to help him out? Who are they peddling this crap to? Two year olds? Goddamn...

It was nice seeing TR actually trying to recruit Colress, other than that rest of the episode was completely pointless. I don't need filler in my filler.

Nice to see the Genesect appearance.
Once again Team Rocket shows their superiority against Team Plasma.
The side story in the episode was figuring out what the heck was suddenly wrong with Pignite. It turns out to be bullet seed seeds stuck up his nose.
That was random.

Claimed by me!
I'm finally getting back into watching Pokemon after a long time away due to real life, and this episode, the first fresh one I'd watched in three years, was a great one. I actually started watching again two episodes back (I already reviewed those episodes), but this episode was awesome.
I love episodes where Team Rocket is the star, and this is no exception. We really get to see how strong Team Rocket can be without the twerps around, and they really shine here especially Meowth. For a pokemon that has basically one move, Meowth gets to show even he has potential. Great voice work as well. When I saw the pictures for this episode ages and ages ago, I wasn't sure how the episode would be, but I'm glad it turned out to be great. Interesting too that they built on the previous episode for the twerp subplot.

Wow I liked how Meowth managed to get into Team Plasma's base and tricked Colress, tho it's too bad how he ended up being controlled eventually. The Pignite subplot that was shown was kind of funny as well. ^^
What a bizarre episode. I liked how Nyasu was sent to spy on the Plasma-dan and how he was eventually placed under Achroma's mind control, but Satoshi's Chaoboo's nostril dilemma seemed so unneeded. At least we got a glimpse of where N was, though, as well as a flashback showing the Genosect crew.
