Meowth here. XD. lol.
Oddly enough, I've always found them the most relatable characters on the show, and the most well developed. I didn't like them when they were serious that much. While I think it's great they were finally getting closer to Giovanni and their dreams, the way it was executed was in such a dull fashion that it was rather boring to watch.
The only thing that bothered me about the change was that it just seemed really random. Nothing really made them decide to act totally serious.
I liked this episode because Mareep.
OK, I hate to say it but this episode was felt pretty bland and unnecessary.
The plot and today's problem seemed so cheap and kind of forced, it almost reminded me of Johto fillers. And, is it me or was this episode just meant to reaffirm the prejudice that sheep are kind of...slow-witted?
The only two good things about this episode were first Dragonite acting as a coach (and being pretty good at that) and second that we finally got to see inside a Pokeball. If you ask me, it looks pretty narrow and sterile inside those Pokeballs, though. Well, at least we now know that Pokemon mustn't suffer from claustrophobia.
Well, I can't really say much more about the episode apart from the fact that I think the writers should have spared us this one and make the Team Plasma introduction a two-parter instead.

Psyduck at the end of the episode it was caught in. But that was years ago so I guess it's easy that one could forget. Besides the inside of that Pokeball was just an empty white space.
I thought this episode was rather cute! Especially because of Pikachu and Axew's cuteness in it lol. Dragonite acting as a coach was neat too. And though I didn't like how there was no explanation for Team Rocket turning more serious, I liked the change. Their old selves got old. They were entertaining for a time, but the goofiness got boring for me.
And as for their method of capturing the Mareep, yeah, it was really slow, but I doubt just rushing over in front of everyone would've been a much better idea.
