    I think they'll be staying, as you can see they switch serious to comical next moment whenever they want. What do you guys think?

    If BW didn't prove they're staying for good, I don't know what will.

    If they stay, I hope their appearances remain rare.

    I like Team Rocket as individual characters - but they are are purposeless organisation, who don't have a cohesive plot for why they do what they do and what success would be. If they bothered to write a storyline explaining what Giovanni would do if he did get a big powerful army of Pokemon, perhaps Jessie and James could work towards that in a meaningful way, but they are vague so never advance the story at all, just turn up to achieve their next total failure. Of the main TR plots in BW, the only one that is good was the Subway one because it got us the lead up episodes with Meowth - not because the plot itself was a great episode.

    Team Rocket's best appearances in my view were around Jessie's contests in DP - they were being sneaky and disruptive but with good intentions and a real goal in mind. It was a good storyline, it showed the uniqueness of all their personalities but those parts weren't overwhelming to the episodes they were in, unlike where they come in to steal Pokemon and the episode grinds to a halt to battle them.

    Without their unique characters on show, Team Rocket are nothing - because they have no purpose as an organisation that is made clear and certainly not one that fits with the wider storyline of the Pokemon series. The characters being Jessie and James doesn't matter if their role in the episode would be exactly the same if they were swapped for grunts.

    I want them to have pokemon with personalities again. Yamask and Woobat are so boring.

    I say they're gonna stay. Whether or not they go back to their Sinnoh personalities or continue to pull off B plot missions like in Best Wishes still has yet to be seen. (I personally hope they find a balance between the two. To be honest, they really got on my nervs in DP...)

    We'll have to see how the N saga points out first.

    I think that they're going to stay for the next series. Even with their rare appearances in BW, they still seem like pretty popular characters in Japan, so I think that they have a good chance of staying. I really hope that they'll have their personalities back in the next series though. I wouldn't mind if they still didn't appear in every episode. I had no problem with that since they were usually entertaining most of the time, but in BW, they've been extremely boring for me, so I'd prefer to see them back in a more comical relief role with their personalities in the next series.

    I want them to stay for the next series, but with a slightly reduced role in order to make room for the Gen 6 villians, and I would also like for them to bring back their classic personalities.

    For the last time, BW is NOT a reboot.

    I thought they had always been predictable :P

    But I love them. I used to hate them when I watched the dub, but when I started watching in Japanese, Kojirou became one of my favorite characters. I don't want them to ever leave, but it would be awesome if they returned to their pre-BW selves.
