    Do Pokemon criminals like Team Rocket go to jail?

    ... or do they just black out and lose half of their money and wake up at the nearest pokemon center, when they're caught

    It's been shown on a number of occasions that Team Rocket blast off, and then land in a different area, and are not caught.

    The only games to feature a jail was Collosseum/XD. Most of the RPGs feature a type of police force, but it's never known if they've ever apprehended anyone. A lot of them (especially in D/P) seem too jittery.

    There is a jail but Team Rocket and others are so slippery and get away too fast.

    Butch and Cassidy have gone to jail before (they *claim* Giovanni paid their bail, but I doubt he'd compromise his security that much). Zanna and Rion wound up in jail at the end of 5, as did Phantom in 9.

    Also, the Rocket Scout mentioned that the police had been cracking down on the Rockets. That was in late Johto and may not still be going on, but the fact that it *was* shows that there's some police-involved fate.

    I don't think they keep them in jails, at least not for long. I think criminals are executed on the spot. Shot to death in a seed machine gun firing range. It's why caught criminals never appear back in the anime, and also why it's safe for little kids to go around on their own.

    So Butch and Cassidy are undead zombies from beyond the grave? And that prison library in 5 was part of the afterlife?

    Hmmm...is it possible for zombies to look nothing like a zombie?
    In Black and White, Rock Smash is no longer an HM. Good riddance.

    Butch and Cassidy were probably traded for some undercover Jenny's who tried to infiltrate Rocket HQ (Hence "payed bail", because bail does not work in a way that frees you forever). Cassidy also studies the ancient art of Ninjutsu, using kamawari doppelgangers so the police just think they executed them. Of course all rockets are trained in the secret arts: wither it is Ninja Transformations, Ninja Pit Fall Trap digging, or Ninja Sentai Mecha Summoning they come prepared to fight back against what we find controversial rulings of the police. It's why Ash and co are so surprised to see them all the time and no one outside of Johto/Kanto have heard of them, that crafty Rocket Ninjutsu.

    It's also a sharp contrast to those peace loving Rangers who let criminals go the second they catch them in a form of protest against the harsh policing in the pokemon world.

    the question really is: "Does Officer Jenny do her job?"

    the answer really is: no. go watch "enter galactic". she was right there and relied on a bunch of teenagers to stop a criminal force. did she do anything but say "You cant do this!" not really. She had no backup, no weapon, no handcuffs for crying out loud. some officer. and then, she let them fly away without pursuit. "Oh well, we got the meteorites back!". wayta go, Jen.

    They must be jailed as, considering the crimes committed, they must be. With those sorts of crimes they would be unlikely to get away wityh any lesser punishment, and in a world like that I imagine there is no death sentance.

    Thanks to my Best Friend Kieko4eva for the banner.

    Well its pretty hard to kill them considering they can go through a thunderbolt and survive, fall from thousands of feet in the air and survive, and even survive being burned.
