Rainbow Rocket anime version

Discussion in 'Pokémon Animé Discussion' started by KenzeyEevee, Jul 26, 2019.

  1. I have always wondered how an anime version of Rainbow Rocket would like. How would you do it?
    I think the deaths of Lysandre, Cyrus isnt a problem if they use alternative universe where they met an Ash.

    Most likely disappointing with the Team Rocket trio getting a lot of screentime while making fools of themselves.
  3. Would they join this Giovanni or rebel against it?

    If the Rainbow Rocket-dan subplot had been adapted in the anime, it probably would've ended up being extremely watered-down with no previous villains showing up other than Sakaki. It would've probably been a two-parter rather than a full mini-arc as well since I can't imagine the writers expanding a subplot that was rather short in the games.

    A variation could be instead of game antagonists, Team Rainbow Rocket comprises of major anime-introduced villains. Sebastian, Brodie, Hunter J, maybe even an evil Lusamine in line with her Sun and Moon characterization

    To expand on RedJirachi's suggestions, I think other media Rockets like Domino, Blaine/Sabrina, and the admins would leave a bigger impact than the leaders of other teams. An army of Ultra Beasts would also be more believable than box legends.

    RR Giovanni would absolutely have Mega Mewtwo X, because the anime follows Pokemon Sun's story and Mega Mewtwo X has never made an animated appearance.

    The best way would be for all Rocket members of anime past to appear:
    The various movie ones
    Heck throw in Brodie and Yung too, and the HGSS admins

    Though it'd likely just end up being the most boring member, Matori getting unnecessarily pushed....

    But most of those characters haven't been seen for more than a decade, so it would seem really unlikely that the writers would bring back those anime-exclusive villains that most fans probably don't remember or even care about.

    I feel that ship have long sail and quite frankly after the necromza arc I don’t want them to back back jobbers.

    If we ever get to see Team Rainbow Rocket in the show, I'd want it to be the conclusion of the Team Rocket organization as a whole and not just another Operation Tempest kind of thing.

    I doubt that the Rocket-dan will ever truly disband since that would mean getting rid of the Rocket-dan trio, which seems incredibly unlikely given their overall popularity. I wouldn't mind if Sakaki got arrested and Matori would take over at the end of a hypothetical Rainbow Rocket-dan subplot, though.

    You're saying Giovanni isn't rich and influential enough to buy his innocence? He's like Lex Luthor, they even let Giovanni have a gym despite Team Rocket being a known criminal syndacite

    I'm not saying that Sakaki couldn't technically escape justice, simply that I'd prefer to see him be written off of the anime at this point since his role has been almost non-existent for a while now, and I figure that since he hardly does anything these days he may as well disappear completely and let someone else take over the organization in his place.
