Here's a question for you, why are the original badguy team called Team Rocket? I mean, it has nothing to do with what they were aiming for. Magma wanted to create new land, which is usually done with magma, Aqua wanted to expand the seas for aquatic life, Team Galactic's boss wanted to create a new Universe and Plasma, I'm not sure.
The point is all the names have some relation to their goal. So then, why were they called Team Rocket? And don't bother with the Adventures explaination of 'it stands for Raid On the City, Knockout, Evil Tasks'. As far as I can tell, they just slapped an extra leg to the P in Pocket Monsters and replaced the Monsters with Gang (in the Japanese). Anyone got any thoughts on this?
