    Default TR vs TR

    Which one do you prefer: Old TR with "sympathyc" and "funny" personality, or new TR with "antagonistic" and "serious" personality. What do you think about their back to old selves in BW25. Discuss!

    Old TR. But I don't really think we can call it "old" per say..I think BW 25 proves their normal personality was never replaced, therefore never "old".

    Heck, even in BW 1-5 there really wasn't all that much of a difference. They still screamed and got scared when Oshawatt sprayed them with Water Gun in BW2 and when then they fell from the balloon.

    I prefer a Team Rocket that doesn't fall back into the same old routine.

    We've had about 20 episodes (and occasional one-offs) of badass Team Rocket and 600+ of goofy Team Rocket. Can you tell which is the one that needs to be fleshed out more?

    As did I. Since there's no way the Plasma plot is done, I'm sure we'll get back to serious Rockets in a bit. In the mean time, I'll enjoy the break. Can't wait to see what happens!

    I much prefer the competent TR, and eagerly await their return.

    To be fair, "badass" TR was hardly more competent than "goofy" ones. And they usually did nothing in all these episodes. Musashi's Koromori did nothing and Kojiro didn't even catch a pokemon...

    I don't care. It was different and different is good for a new series.

    No blast-offs, crazy machines kept to a minimum, new friggin' uniforms... Now you're telling me I have to go back to regular Coke after experiencing the awesome taste that is Cherry Coke? The old Coke has gone flat and lukewarm. Blech.

    Funny you mention Coke. Back in the '80s, Coke released a new formula of Coke with Corn syrup to make it more like Pepsi. Needless to say "New Coke" was one of the biggest marketing blunders of all time and people demanded the old Coke back, which returned in a matter of weeks.

    The old adage goes "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Perhaps the writers were overwhelmed by the negative response to the "new" TR and changed them back. Or maybe they just like messing with us and planned this all along. Besides, we don't even know what is in store yet. TR might not be blasting off every episode like they used to. Perhaps it will be a hybrid between the old TR and "new" one.

    That's what I'm thinking. This episode would have gone into production after the series started in September, so they would have started getting in feedback by then. I guess the emotionless robots weren't that popular

    Another "theory" is that the writer who was basically the "father" of the TRio, Takeshi Shudo, also passed on around this time and perhaps as a sign of respect they are reverting them back to the original incarnations to honor him?

    I mean, while I totally love the change of heart, doing it only 25 episodes in seems awfully strange.

    Um...didn't Shudo want them to be like they were before instead of goofy Doronjo, Boyacky, and Tnzura rejects?

    I think so, but I don't think he would've liked them being turned into souless droids devoid of any emotion or feelings. IIRC, he loved the fact they had such good personalities and a diverse past.
