I did find the Rocket-dan trio to be somewhat intolerable in the XY series now that I look back. I generally like the trio because they're usually quirky, but in the XY series I felt that they had overstayed their welcome, because to me it felt like the writers didn't necessarily care enough about them to give them interesting subplots. It seemed like they were just going through the motions, and the Rocket-dan began to feel very unnecessary as XY went on.OniCornwalis said:Team Rocket- Yes, it's true that Team Rocket had their moments, such as episode 107, episode 57, and episode 82. For the most part though, they only served to create artificial conflict or were shoved in when they shouldn't have in order to pad out episodes, like episodes 18, 46, 36, 66, 85, 104, 115 and 118. This was honestly their lowest point in the entire franchise, as they were both shoved into episodes where they weren't need AND didn't have the humor that made them tolerable in earlier seasons when they were put into every episode.
