So, after I had made my own joke elite four, It gave me some thoughts. You see, I had my champion being an old team rocket boss, who was trying to recruit leaders and admins of those who got to challenge him. He was using some strong steel types, such as Magnaton e.t.c, Mawile e.t.c.
However, in the games, only team rocket bosses and admins have had strong Pokemon. Why was this? Surely a team as large as them could steal, or heck, even go to the safari zone and lob some Pokeballs?
What im saying is- Imagine this. A ream rocket with real powerful Pokemon. Taruos, Golems, you know. Could, if they had all their members with tough and powerful Pokemon.. Could Team Rocket have been successful, and ruled the Poke crime world for years to come?
