I just thought of a scenario idea for this episode: Maybe this time Butch and Cassidy would offer James and Meowth to work with them outside of Team Rocket ("Café Mix?") but Jessie would refuse to partner with Cassidy, run off and ensue some sort of temporary separation? …

Meowth would agree to stay with Meowzie (*she would have been rescued from the streets by Butch and Cassidy with the explanation that she had no happy future with her evil cat gang - they would explain that this rescue of Meowzie is what would have made them realize that they had no future in Team Rocket too).

Cassidy would try to convince James on the side and he would be reluctant but Jessie would hear a bad bit of conversation and mistakenly believe that he wants to join Butch and Cassidy, so, she would decide to leave?

Of course in the end everyone
would realize it was a misunderstanding and reconcile… with the explanation that Jessie will never be alone again thanks to the support of her 2 best friends

(And I was going to forget a detail: in anger, Jessie would break the gachat XP)

I admit I like when one of the mainstays manages to get some sort of long term advancement (eg. Ash winning the league, Pikachu getting new moves, TR finally winning Giovanni over). I know it's hard in a long runner where they're kind of dependent on being stagnant in their core for the most part, but some sort of change or development to show their whole journey hasn't been a waste is rather cathartic.

I suppose if any series is good for it, it's Journeys, which just seems to be trying any randomness to spruce up the formula.

Where the hell did all of my intelligence go?
I just hope the old characters have a way to develop new characters in a meaningful way.
Well, for this one, not "new characters", but "main characters". But yeah, hopefully this is a development of Team Rocket episode like I have been wanting for a while.

Question: what part-time job did Trio get in Journeys so far? Cant remember one.

I would like if James, Meowth and Jessie use Satoshi and co in how a dream can evolve. Like Dawns, Mays and Serenas, Especially for Jessie. Like their dreams evolve, even for Satoshi. References to their dreams

Who knows what'll happen. We thought Brock would never leave after his brief departure in the Orange League arc drew such ire and yet, come Sinnoh, Brock left.
Depends really. I mean there was the alleged attempt to 'retire' them after the Operation Tempest arc in BW, which they bailed on after negative press. The same amount of time has admittedly passed between that and now compared to Orange Island and when Brock left, though there were other factors with him I suppose. They were blatantly out of ideas for Brock by that point and wanted to soft reboot the series after.

At the very least however, that example leads me to believe that if the trio were bowed out, they'd try to give Team Rocket as a whole a proper final hurrah. We essentially got a freebee Giovanni arc there, and at this point in time they'd likely want a bow out for Matori as well.

I mean it would make sense. Team Rocket is the only criminal organization who has never been defeated so far or where major members were arrested.

Humans are tools
+ ALL THE TEAM ROCKET THINGS BETWEEN THEM. It is a wonder she came so far TWICE

You know the best part of jessie's contest arc was, the background commentary and moaning of james and meowth who were scared all the times..

I liked how Meowth's role slowly developed through the coordinator arcs.

* In AG he's just helping Jessie cheat most of the time.
* In DP, after it's revealed he and James failed to rig her first win, she starts pulling things of by genuine talent. Poetically one business deal Meowth made to ditch TR (but didn't have the heart) ended up a chekhov's skill.
* In XY, he ends up a background manager of sorts, making sure she gets inside info and her stunts work properly.

It's cute how by the end of it, despite their fear of Jessie, they are quite touched when they realise she was satisfied with her final result. Self preserving as they are, they do genuinely want Jessie to succeed.

I just realized.

There is absolutely no way TRio is retiring here.

Because they still need to meet Galarian Meowth and Purrserker
Big missed opportunity to not have their old rivals own either Galarian Meowth or Perrserker.

Hurry up and show my favorite variants of SwSh Journeys!
