    Default ROCKET stands for...

    Maybe you will think that I am high or something, but I am not!

    Well, some days ago, in Bulbapedia, I saw that in the Manga, ROCKET stands for Raid On City...I don't remember what did KET stand por u_u

    And...That info is no longer available in Bulbapedia, I guess...

    Anybody help?

    Raid On City Knock out Evil Tusks.

    Giovanni must have been on crack and reading Through the Looking Glass when he came up with that one.

    I feel like Poomo tonight.

    is it based off of an English phrase in the Japanese version, or is this only the Singapore translation? A raw scan would be appreciated.

    Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.

    No. VIZ Translated that.

    What does the Tusk part mean anyway?

    I don't have volume 3, so I can't look it up, but the impression I got was that it was a code phrase rather than what the name actually meant.

    Sounds like they want to kill the city of Evil Donphan's?

    It was also in Japanese version. I've seen it somewhere but I don't have scan.

    It means they want to knock-out an evil Tusk.

    I believe that "Tusks" refers to the Team Rocket members themselves, as Giovanni calls them "teeth of evil" a bit before he says that.


    ...No, I don't get it either.

    Perhaps he drinks heavily, as was implied in Ono's series.


    ...which is funny, since he's been *shown* to drink in the anime, but no one assumes much from it. Maybe because he hasn't been shown stone drunk like he was in Ono's comic.

    It makes sense.

    Sakaki drank in Pikachu series, that's why became so... happy in first Movie Adaptation.

    I'm inclined to think that they actually meant "Task", but eh.

    But this text was in Romaji. It clearly said "Tusk".
