I haven't actually seen a single of episode of Da from start to finish yet but from what I saw its better thanBW and EPN TR for sure.
I admit that Team Rocket seemed redundant in the previous DA episode. I mean they didn't do anything worth talking about, which was a shame since I liked them in the other DA episodes. Still, I wasn't too bothered, but I know a lot of people complain about them being in the anime still. However, if they only appear for a few minutes per episode, I don't see what the problem is. I mean they aren't taking too much screen-time.
If they or any other character are serving absolutely no purpose in an episode, they shouldn't be there. And yes, do remember that Team Rocket haven't served any useful role since Da! started, and you may see where I'm going.
TR simply aren't interesting anymore in any form. The new Pokemon they got this saga were throwaway and their least memorable, probably due to the fact that we barely see them.
At least with Seviper, Cacnea, Carnivine and Dustox/Yanmega they were used often enough and got almost as much screentime as Arbok/Weezing did.
Honestly I don't think anyone is going to even remember what Pokemon Team Rocket had in Best Wishes a few years from now.

Seviper was in literally double the amount of episodes Abrok was. Seviper lasted the entire span of AG to DP's final episode, which gave it almost 400 episodes compared to Arbok's 275.
The Animedex is your friend if you insist on making this kind of comparisons.
This is what I have been repeating for ages, and it is applicable here too. I don't mind a serious TR plot, but Musashi, Kojiro and Nyasu are totally out of character when they are serious. They can have serious TR if they want, but why use these three? There are many other amazing TR people who can do the same role Musashi, Kojiro did along with Zager Hakase.
The problem? They don't want to get rid of TRio, and at the same time they understand people are tired of comedic TR. They happened to use the bad solution: Make them serious.
And yes, I am ridiculing you for not using Japanese names
I mean it pales in-comparison when you look at the BW trio's Pokemon and realize how many of the Pokemon have different substantial personalities. Tsutarja's snideness, Mijumaru's clowny, Zuruggu's a roughneck, Kairyu is tough and not the average Kairyu, Kibago's innocent and toddlerish, Emonga's deceitful, Doryuzu's a big softie who acts calm and cool and a bit of a bully...umm...let's see Pikachu's a voice of reason and leader, Chaobu's determined and had a defeatist nature as a Pokabu, Waruvial acts confident and competitive and timid at times.
Gantle and Hahahomori had a lot of personality when they weren't evolved, as a Kurimiru he attacked Satoshi and showed he was kiddish and competitive and Gantle was jumpy and hyperactive as a Dangoro. Gamagaru was like a mob boss in his debut episode. Kenharou when she was a Mamepato showed she was kinda slow and proud.(Flexing before evolving and a slow reaction to being Headbutted.) Those personality traits have been lost since their debut because they either don't get enough screen time or evolution can be seen as a sign of maturity and passing off these traits.
TR's Pokemon have almost all always been just comedic, it's almost never anything different with them. There Pokemon do show general sadness like any Pokemon in release episodes but that's that really. There's never been variety, Habunake when Musashi caught it was a deadly, mean, nasty snake Pokemon with a chip on its shoulder but we never saw that side of it again.

Well, Yamask does have a little "personality", kinda. At least in the early eps it was in, like when James caught it<3
Also, say what you want, but I want Amoongus to hug James and paralyse him every time!!
Is apparantly Dragon Type in the Friend Safari. Neat.

Well Team Rocket was the only good thing in Unova. They were actually threatening and kicked butt in this one. We actually saw Giovanni battle Ash for once and own him. Maybe TR should get their own spinoff.
In a way, we are in agreement.
I don't like them that much. That's all I'll say - I miss the serious TRio, they were ironically funnier than Da TRio.

I have nothing against DA TRio. At least they don't steal as much screen time as they did before BW. That's what matter the most to me.
