    Default Why didn't they use Team Rocket's Unova motto music more often?

    Pokémon Anime Sound Collection- Team Rocket's Unova Motto/Theme (Instrumental) - YouTube

    This is what I'm talking about, the background music that played in the background for their Unova motto. Why didn't they use it more often? After a while they went back to the DP motto music, but I think this one is way better. I think they recently used it at the end of Episode N but before that they just used the DP music for their motto. Was it because they "went back to their old ways" and their Unova theme was too "serious?"

    I like that motto music more than the DP one too. I guess it was because they felt that the new one was too serious and because they changed up their motto and went back to the old one later on.

    I believe the DP motto music sounds more dramatic instead than the early BW one, which was used five times only. It was like this:
    BW002, BW003, BW004, BW006, BW122: BW motto music
    BW023, BW026: DP motto music
    BW027, BW029, BW034: Average BGM
    BW035 - onwards: DP motto music re-arrangement

    Maybe they wanted to show Team Rocket back to their old plans not only by returning them to the white uniforms, but also changing their soundtrack. After the Castelia-to-Nimbasa journeys, they still were serious and made complex plans like before, so I think that's just a minor writting problem. Therefore, to show that they were going back to their comedic way during Episode N (that arc was a transition from serious to comedic), they also returned to the original motto to further expand the idea. They used the early track in BW122 just because the other one was already used in the episode, when Meowth attacked Team Plasma to protect Ash and Pikachu.
    It doesn't matter if you aren't going to reach the goal, as long as you're still happy doing the trajectory.

    Good question. I wish I knew the answer to that one.

    It's actually my favorite motto they've used since the Kanto one, and the motto music is awesome. I liked the BGM for their motto a lot more here than the one they use with the Sinnoh TRio BGM myself.
