Shudo didn't like funny Rockets... He always wanted them to become more than just comic-reliefs and he tried to fight with other writers' thoughtless treatment of Rocket trio. Not to mention that many comedic situations were just OOC.
For sure, Japanese loved their self-existence. As in, wearing white uniforms instead of black ones, having a motto, and standing out overall, being self-confident about their position in the show, that is, their world, while they really meant nothing. Shudo specified that.
But have they really changed that much now? They're just way more serious and succesful and have black uniforms, that's all. They're still loyal to the organization as they've always been. At the beginning I thought they lost their feeling of self-existence. But no. It's just that at the moment, they're just in the center of the dream they've always followed. Dream of becoming really important. They're trying their best not to fail it, because they know they won't get another chance. It's now or never.
That is. They believe that they're important, but they don't know the truth.
You think you mean something, you try your best to become who you want to be, to be the best at what you're doing... but in the end it means nothing as you're only human being, whose powers and life is limited.
Rocket Trio were really tragicomedic characters. They were meant to fail, they were meant to cause the feeling of sympathy. They were meant to be unideal, just like human beings. Yet, they were meant to still feel worthy in its own way. No matter what, they thought their existence is important.
They've been always chasing after their dreams, that sooner or later, turn out be fake dreams.
Even though Rockets are succesful now, they're meant to FAIL in the end and to realize they meant nothing. They need one, ultimate fail after the path of successes to prove them, how meaningless their goals were. Otherwise, they'd never realize it. Or maybe it just won't matter to them? Because as long as they spent their lives with each other they have nothing to regret.
Feeling important and powerful, when you're nothing but silly, imperfect creature. It's all Shudo's philosophy here. The more I think of BW, the less I think that Tomioka disregarded Shudo's job. It looked like it at first, but now I can see that it's all the same, just approached from different side.
No, no, no. They've never been important.The trio of Team Rocket was important characters of Pokémon during 13 seasons
Erm, what role you wanted them to get? At least they have now separate plot...and I hope that this time, we would give them an important role but I am disappointed :(
Like if earlier the scenes weren't repetitive and boring. Many of Jouto and AG episodes were hell. Not to mention that most of their screentime was stealing Pokemon of the day and battling with twerps that always ended with, SURPRISE! blast-off.For the moment, I find the scenes of the Rockets in Best Wishes, repetitive and boring (I again preferred to see the "Blasting off again" because at least, they had more appearance. I miss seriously to see Rocket only 3 minutes maximum since the beginning of BW),
Everyone is free to have their own opinion, peacesorry, but it is my opinion. I look at the ancient episodes with a lot of nostalgia. Best Wishes manages only to annoy me.
In DP, no, in all anime, they haven't had development until DP100-something xD; But I'm not sure if I think right what you mean.I very appreciated the appearance of Rockets in the BW 11, they had many class and were beautiful but this time still, they missed development
It's been more considered than you think. These people work on it for years and sold their souls for it, if they don't know what they're doing, who would?Nothing is really thougth in Pokémon,
TRio arleady have special treatment in the show. They appear in every episode, even if it's not neccessary for them to show up that often.I am maybe rough in my comments but I consider that after 14 years of appearance, the trio deserves a much more important role and appearances more numerous than for 2 minutes only.
That's right, there's as much serious!TR haters now as it used to be silly!TR haters, who hated them to say their "stupid" motto, steal Pikachu and blast off every week. Japan is no exception.All of us could be complianing, but unless Japan is making a huge fuss, nothing will change. I wouldn't call the fanart you posted making a huge fuss, because there are also many artists that love how they act now. Many people participating in the next KojiMusa Anthology will be doing stories set in the BW series. It's a mixed bag, just like its always been.
It looks like Tomioka will stay for long, until he messes up very much, but I don't think it's gonna happen ;D Replacing the head writer only causes a big mess. Thanks to Tomioka, writing got really decent and logic as for Pokemon.That's not a fair comparison. Those two were Jouto screwups because Shudo left and
Omae-samathe Producers didn't seem to know how to manage things. The show is much more organized nowadays.
That's right, we just have fun speculating and then finding out whether we were right or wrong ;D But after DP's resume I must say that maybe sometimes we went too farfetched, because we had a hunch that Rockets are going to have their closure soon, but when we look at things generally, we were mostly right.I wouldn't say you're being rough in your comments, I just enjoy posting theories in this thread. Sometimes I'm right, most of the time I'm wrong, you can take what you want from my posts.
Yeah, they've been always meant to be like this, maybe Shudo had ambitions for more, but it didn't work in the end, and will never do.But the problem with liking secondary characters is just that. They'll always be secondary characters. I know it sucks that the Rockets are the second longest running characters on the show and don't get more screen time, but that's not what their characters are about.
