    No, it does. It completely justifies it. You're a troll who is just ignoring reality.

    For me personally i think the writers should mix team rockets old funny personality wwith the more serious personality.

    Have TR learn the errors of there ways t the end of BW and have them travel with Ash in the filler saga.

    This thread is getting so stupid that it makes the rest of PAD look smart in comparison. You guys can either stop whining about the show's changes over time/bringing up thinly veiled character bashing character comparisons now, or I can close the thread. Take your pick.

    I hope TR stays the way they are and never goes back to "were blasting! off again!!!" god I hated them when they were a bunch of Idiots.

    playerking Sick of dealing with idiots.

    To the person who says we are haters just because we like some of Team Rockets comedic aspects (Yankees4life) shut up, I don't hate the new Team Rocket they are Epic i just want to know if they will stay this way forever. I hope they don't. If they were going to do the blasting off i don't want it every episode, i want them serious and funny.

    TR will likely be written out after this as you hear it from the majority of the fanbase as well as here in this forum

    As I don't see serious TR for the rest of the series

    That doesn't mean they'd get kicked out of the series. As I said the reason they are serious now is because of the equipment, take that away and they can be comical again.

    they're serious because they got promoted and was sent to Unova for a "serious" mission by Giovanni. Once, the saga is over, the mission is over and the real question is will they stay that way next gen or they're gone after this one

    They're serious simply because they aren't dealing with Ash and Pikachu anymore. Don't forget that Team rocket showed that they could be quite successful in past sagas when they weren't wasting time trying to steal Pikachu. They always been able to be competent, They just never had a chance to be so for so long in the other sagas because they were always running into Ash and gang. But now that's no longer the case, Thus they're able to actually be a threat.

    I don’t care what anybody says, Team Rocket forever! I’m glad to see Giovanni tossing Jessie and James a bone for a change, even if it is just a rouse. I’d actually like to see Ash and Co. give them a chance and convert them to the good side. If Ash can convince them that Giovanni treats them like special-needs children, maybe they might reevaluate their lives.

    I'd say it's pretty obvious at this point that Team Rocket's comedic aspects are gone.

    Thank heaven.

    Thriller Its almost time

    I'll say that this change of pace is long overdue (since Two-Freaking-THOUSAND!) and quite welcome.
  15. I know that before BW I was complaining that TR was just getting ridiculous and bland, but this change is just too much. What happened to the goofy dunderheads I used to know and love:(? It's like they don't even have souls any more on the show; at least they used to have compassion that showed itself and caused them to make selfless decisions before:
    *In the Electrike episode of DP, James and Meowth felt sorry for the Electrike and agreed to help it train
    *When Pikachu lost to Raichu (the second time) TR felt sorry for him and was kind enough to cheer him on and not even try to interfere in his training for the rematch
    *When Dustox fell in love with the shiny one, Jessie insisted that it go to be with its true love, even bringing up sad memories from her childhood
    *When Gardenia asked James to let her train Cacnea, James agreed because he loved Cacnea and wanted what was best for it, to give it a chance at a better life
    *TR repeatedly cheered on Chimchar/Monferno/Infernape in battle and felt sorry for it after its mistreatment by Paul

    See, they've been evil all along, but at least the old TR had some sense of humanity and comic relief.

    You make it sound like those kind of episodes were happening every week. They were the exception, not the norm for TR. Usually in the episode right after those "heartfelt" moments they were back to being their old bumbling selves.

    I would have never expected people to say that the best thing about the series is Team Rocket....strange times.

    Ya shouldn't be. It was a change for da best, m8 :D

    We've only been seeing them evil so far, but really... we haven't seen them do too much anyway. They've had short, short appearances so far that likely won't make sense until the distant future. It's hard to give soul and development to characters that appear for five seconds per episode.

    I wouldn't count them out for a future "let's help Ash" episode. Most likely, when Team Plasma starts becoming threatening is when that'll happen.
