Are you concerned about the Shadow Triad's possibility not making into Episode N?

    Hi. Just something which is driving my mind whenever I saw these first episodes of the new season...

    Team Plasma looks pretty much only about Ghetsis, Colress and generic grunts. There's no signs of Zinzolin and the Shadow Triad, though they aren't less important to Team Plasma than Colress...and yet the scientist gets the spotlight.

    I fully understand he is much more loved but....please don't take me wrong but I feel like this team...will turn much pretty ordinary devilish thugs without the ninjas. There's no proof they are banned from the anime but there's no confirmation of their appearance neither. Are sacrificing them because of Team Rocket?

    I just would like to know if I'm not alone about this concern.

    What do you think?
  2. I think they will appear, I mean they ARE Ghetsis' loyal servants. How can they show Ghetsis without his loyal servants? The ones he *saved*?

    The scientists are usually seen as some of the more important members in the anime because they are seen as the brains of the group. I'm not surprised at Colress having such a large role.

    No, I would be more concerned if Ghetsis and Colress weren't, they are vital, the 3 white haired Sasukes aren't.

    Nah, not every character of significance is showcased in the anime. The Shadow triad in perspective weren't really that important.

    What does the fandom generally think of Zinzolin? I hear how popular Ghetsis, N and Colress are but does Zinzolin have a following as well considering he shows up as much as Colress does in the games.

    I'm afraid they can do that for no reason at all. I'm expecting the worse. After all, we are talking about Best Wishes.

    Perhaps but still they are unique compared with everyone else. It won't hurt to make them break the rules of the anime as they did with the games.

    I guess the fandom doesn't really care about him. It's like how the Shadow Triad was completely easy to be forgotten in the prequel games. Zinzolin lacked charm, he simply just complained too much. I'm simply indifferent about him, but particularly I don't know anyone who liked him...

    That stereotype could be dropped in a time or another, it's starting to get tiring and predicable, even with Colress. No offense intended.

    In another words, concern only over overrated characters. Sounds legit.

    I don't see what they can do that can't just be done by Plasma Grunts. I don't think they're gonna have the time to really dive into the whole Team Plasma structure, I'd guess it's mostly gonna be Ghetsis and Colress running the show.

    If they do appear, it'll probably be at the very end as Ghetsis's best guards to fight off the trio while he executes his master plan.

    I actually didn't find him any less entertaining than say Colress. I think they could have done a great job with him in the anime. Someone who has joined Team Plasma primarily because he was curious to see how the world would change if Ghetsis was the ruler sounds interesting to me.

    Ghetsis is the leader. He's a given. Colress is slightly overrated in my opinion though.

    I thought it worked really well for Zager but that's because in addition to being a scientist, he was also a commanding officer to the TRio and actually did things besides experiments. We will have to see what happens with Colress when he debuts.

    Well, I do not really care about them. As you can see, the Shadow Triad has some secret missions, and I can't imagine an episode with them. I don't know where the triad should fit.
    Team Rocket and Team Plasma, N, Looker, Ghetsis and the grunts are already taking a big part of the show right now. If even Charizard is taking a place on those screen time, I really doubt the Shadow Triad will appear in the show. Maybe as a cameo, a flashback, telling that they flee in the region, searching new missions, or that they've help Ghetsis to reach is goal.

    Overrated indeed, give him an ordinary hairstyle and nobody wouldn't give him a damn. No scientist got such love before.

    Well, fan girls do obsess over hair. Look at N. Except where N was an engaging character, Colress is the typical evil scientist we have been seeing in Pokémon for awhile.

    Yes, they are apart of team plasma.

    It's too early to worry about them not appearing. Only 3 of the episodes have aired.
  14. True. I mean they could make the Traid and Zinzolion gameverse/mangaverse only characters if they wanted to. I do wish they were in the anime though, but as others say, they aren't demanded enough.

    I would love the Shadow Triad especially if we see TR vs TP.

    Giovanni vs Ghetsis
    Dr.Zager vs Colress
    TRio vs Shadow Triad
    TR Grunts vs TP Grunts
  16. We havent seen the TR grunts in a while. (unless you replaced them with say.... Peirce)

    We saw 2 TR Grunts in Operation Tempest and TR Grunts were supposed to appear in the original TR vs TP episodes that got postponed.
  18. Oh. Someone posted another part of the Team Rocket story so I might get to seem them.

    Characters that have something to them = Overrated character

    3 ninjas that go around protecting his master without not much substance besides that = great character.
  20. ^ Well then again, many people believe popular = overrated.

    I like both Colress and the Traid but I don't pick up over/underrated.
