This is a follow up to the thread I made about the TRio's obsession with Pikachu.
I figured that, knowing them, they would probably still insist on chasing the "twerps" (for some warped reason). So as a compromise, why not Jessie, James and Meowth try focusing on stealing some of Ash's OTHER Pokemon or the Pokemon of his friends? Surely there are plenty of other Pokemon on Ash's team (past and present, which includes released Pokemon) as well as the teams of his traveling partners that I'm sure Giovanni would have loved to have had for his army of powerful Pokemon as opposed to just Pikachu.
Although I do seem to recall a few moments when they did so, I just don't seem to recall any off the top of my head.
For Ash's Pokemon I suggest making attempts at stealing:
-Charizard: What baffles me is why those 3 morons never made a SINGLE ATTEMPT at stealing perhaps Ash's most powerful Pokemon besides Pikachu. They never even really tried to steal from the Charicific Valley which had plenty of powerful Charizard that the boss would have killed for. One of the members, I don't know which one, even said that they always wanted a Charizard. So why didn't they make any attempts to steal Ash's?
-Snorlax: A Snorlax weighs half a ton, it's one of (if not the) heaviest Pokemon ever. Thus would pack a powerful punch in battle. Ash's is most certainly no different. Giovanni would more than likely enjoy a Snorlax in his army (provided that he keeps a Pokeflute handy).
-Lapras: Lapras are rare Pokemon, the TRio tried to steal it once or twice. Why couldn't they keep it up?
-30 Tauros: Tauros are rare, Giovanni even used Mewtwo to capture a herd of them in the first movie. Why not "borrow" some of Ash's?
-Muk: Those 3 shouldn't complain about having to steal a Muk when they had a couple of poison types themselves. Besides, most TR grunts in the games have mostly poison types.
-Kingler: Giovanni himself has a Kingler, so how about going after Ash's?
-Primeape: It defeated their stolen Hitmonlee to be crowned champion of the fighting tournament. The Boss must need a champion in it's army.
etc, etc, etc.
Or they could try and focus their efforts on stealing his friends' Pokemon. I'm sure Misty, Brock, Tracey, Gary, May, Drew, Dawn, Iris, Cilan, Serena, etc. have some rare, valuable, and powerful Pokemon worth stealing for Giovanni's army.
I also can't recall any specific moments regarding the TRio and Ash's friends' Pokemon off the top of my head. Though they did try to present Misty's Togepi to Giovanni once.
Which of Ash's other Pokemon besides Pikachu and which of the Pokemon of Ash's friends would you have tried to steal for the boss if you were in Jessie, James, and Meowth's shoes?
