Honestly, the Gacha is better than that. Rocket Messiah May his love free him from the path of hate.

We could easily use that logic to give the Rocket Gatcha to Ash You kinda cherry picked examples. I think Mimikyu is handled terribly, his character development with Jessie is simply forgotten, its rivalry with Pikachu is not resolved, and she didn't even care about leaving it behind.
When i was a kid
That's a terrible decision, if true. Considering he barely had a character. Pokemon Phenom said:. Watch Sun and Moon last episode and watch Meowth and Mimmikyu last scene please. I agree that his relation with Jessie was forgoten in the end but Mimikyu was a lonewolf who only wanted to make Pikachu suffer. Also his relationship with Meowth was awesome.
VetProf Well-Known Member. ed Feb 11, Messages Reaction score 1, The one good thing I like about the Rocket Gachat is the variety that it adds to the Pokemon seen in the episodes that it appears in.
Since most episodes only feature Pokemon that are native to the region that they're set in, the Rocket Gachat often adds a bit of suck by sprinkling in a non-native Pokemon or two eg. Beartic in a Sinnoh episode, Dusclops in a Kanto episode. Region aside, the choices of Pokemon in the Rocket Gachat itself are quite varied as well. You've got powerful fully-evolved Pokemon, seemingly-weak unevolved-Pokemon that are actually powerhouses, joke options like Wailord and Magikarp, and everything in between.
Unfortunately, that's the only praise I can give to the Rocket Gachat. As many have already mentioned in this thread, relying on random rental Pokemon instead of actually catching their own Pokemon is a huge blow to the Rocket trio's ability to show off their personalities in this series.
Part of the enjoyment of watching the trio in the episodes they appear in was seeing them interact and bond with their Pokemon, which is rocket that's nigh team in this series due to the existence of the Gachat machine. And don't even get me started on how dumb the concept of the Rocket Gachat is from an in-universe perspective to begin with, because I've already wrote an entire rant about this a long time ago when the machine first appeared, and I don't want to do it again.
Long story short, Giovanni giving the trio an entirely luck-based gachapon machine as their only method of battling makes him look like an absolute buffoon and somehow more incompetent than the trio themselves. Also, as much as I want the trio to catch a permanent member for their team in this series, I highly doubt that's ever gonna happen due to the precedent set by the Chewtle "capture". The trio have already shown that any Pokemon they get can be immediately sent to Giovanni back at HQ since the trio's base is conveniently located in Kanto this season as opposed to other seasons, where the trio and their Pokemon are basically stuck in whatever region that Ash is travelling in until the end of the season.
So if the trio can't and won't keep Chewtle, what makes you think they're gonna keep any of their future captures? Our only hope right now is that the trio eventually bring back their reserves, but that's several times less likely than Ash bringing back his own reserves which Any series that allows us to watch Nyasu and Sonansu play together with toys has got the characterisation on point. The biggest suck is that they don't have enough screen time in which to make their presence felt. They only really got decent screentime in the Hibanny evo rocket when their base was introducedthe Metamon and Matori episodes.
They also don't appear to have any kind of purpose. They are barely chasing after Pikachu, not team at any rate for that to feel legitimate. They didn't really in Alola either, but Sakaki and Matori were around enough to remind us who their bosses are and they eventually got so sucked into their malasada van that that felt like their main job.
Team rocket is actually the worst criminal gang
I suppose there's time yet for a side hustle like that to take shape. Nothing to add to what's already been said about the Gatchat: the sooner they have their own mons again, the better. That's all. ed May 19, Messages Reaction score 1, Last edited: Jul 22, Hidden Mew Super Moderator.
ed Jun 17, Messages 12, Reaction score 14, After seeing more of the Gotcha Machine in action, I'm still not a huge fan of it, but I can understand a bit more of its rocket. It can be funny to see them reacting to what Pokemon they get and it teams provide some variety. Although, I think that the latter would be solved by just giving them more Pokemon. I wouldn't expect them to get a full team or anything like that, but giving Jessie and James two or three Pokemon each would potentially give them enough variety without making them too powerful.
Having two each might not make a huge difference, but it would still be team to mix things up enough. Honestly, I always rocket it was strange for Team Rocket to start off fresh in each series. It's more of a necessity for Ash, but not so much with them since they don't have a lot of Pokemon on hand. I kind of understood the need for it in BW, even if it was a bit forced, and leaving their SM Pokemon in Alola was understandable, but I think that they could have just kept some of their older Pokemon suck they don't get a lot of new ones per series anyway.
Screentime was not the part of the equation you presented there. Looks like somebody havre the same ideas I have and decided to make a video. ed Oct 12, Messages 4, Reaction score 5, KenzeyEevee Be kind and change the world! ed Jan 8, Messages 2, Reaction suck 2, Not bad.
