    Default Battle of the Grunts--Rocket vs. Aqua vs. Magma vs. Galactic vs. Plasma

    1. Which team had the best uniforms for the gents?
    2. Which had the best uniforms for the ladies?
    3. Which team's grunts had the best quotes?
    4. Who was the most fun to fight?
    5. Who had the best theme music for their battles?
    6. Who (likely) had to put up with the most crap from higher-ups?
    7. And if you absolutely had to be part of an evil team, and be in the lowest tier of the chain of command--what team would you be a Grunt for?


    Keep in mind that this is judging the Grunts only--anything else, such as their leaders or the team's motives, has probably been taken by other threads.

    Team Magma. Devil style costumes ftw!

    Galactic by far.

    Aqua/Magma

    6.Who (likely) had to put up with the most crap from higher-ups?
    Rocket because they are woefully unequipped for the jobs they are expected to do. Seriously, Giovanni is a horrible boss because he gives his grunts things like Rattata.

    None.

    Which team had the best uniforms for the gents?
    I'd say Rocket. The most normal of all...

    Which had the best uniforms for the ladies?
    Same as above.

    Which team's grunts had the best quotes?
    I think Plasma, maybe because it's the most recent one? Haha

    Who was the most fun to fight?
    Team Aqua or Team Magma, they're different for a change.

    Who had the best theme music for their battles?
    I'm afraid I cannot answer that. :/

    Who (likely) had to put up with the most crap from higher-ups?
    Team Rocket for sure.

    And if you absolutely had to be part of an evil team, and be in the lowest tier of the chain of command--what team would you be a Grunt for?
    Team Aqua/Magma probably. They're the least villanous of all the teams. The others are cruel! :O

    Team Rocket are classics to the series and had excellent battle themes, particularly the GSCHGSS encounter themes, and they've had the whole series to come up with ways to back themselves up.
    Aqua/Magma had a very interesting dynamic and all-around good music associated with them. It's a shame there's not more canon material of them to go by.
    Galactic was kind of interesting, but I never cared about them as much. I liked the "hive mind" angle in the manga, though.
    Plasma had a very interesting way of contributing to their games' plot and some pretty good battle music and interesting play with their hierarchy. However, some of the actions of the individual members seem contradictory (particularly in the Dreamyard).

    IMO:
    Plasma > Rocket > Aqua=Magma > Galactic

    Best uniforms? Magma's. Dig the horned hoods
    Best quotes? Forgotten them.
    Most fun to fight? Probably Plasma's
    Best theme music? Plasma's
    Who (likely) had to put up with the most crap from higher-ups? Galactic's

    I'd say Plasma > Aqua/Magma (Magma's cooler, but Water beats Fire) > Galactic > Rocket

    Team Rocket's black uniform is pretty cool.
    Which had the best uniforms for the ladies?
    Team Magma.
    Which team's grunts had the best quotes?
    Team Galactic by far.
    Who was the most fun to fight?
    I don't know, all of them.
    Who had the best theme music for their battles?
    Tie between Team Galactic and Team Rocket (HGSS).
    Who (likely) had to put up with the most crap from higher-ups?
    Plasma.
    And if you absolutely had to be part of an evil team, and be in the lowest tier of the chain of command--what team would you be a Grunt for?
    I'd be part of team Aqua, because they don't plan on destroying the world or anything, just flooding it, and life could still go on, even with more water and less land.

    My vote goes to Team Galactic.

    Which team had the best uniforms for the gents?
    -Team Rocket. Plain, simple and somewhat badass

    Which team's grunts had the best quotes?
    -Team Plasma. Hilarious lines! Plasbad :D

    -Team Galactic. I dunno why but I found their Pokemon to be less repetitive than other teams .

    -Team Plasma/Rocket.

    Which team had the best uniforms for the gents?
    Team Aqua for sure. @A@ Bandannas.

    Which had the best uniforms for the ladies?
    Galactic and Plasma, since they're the most modest, with no skin showing at all! -kicked in the gut-

    Seriously, though, I'd take the full-suit space outfit, and the cute crusader outfit, over mini-skirts and belly shirts any day. D:

    Which team's grunts had the best quotes?
    Team Plasma again. PLAAASMAAAAAAA!!! There's also this. Paraphrased: "This is bad! Bad for Team Plasma! Or Plasbad for short!"

    Team Galactic had it share of funny grunts too. Again, paraphrased: "We must have that sweet honey to attract Pokemon in great numbers!"

    Who was the most fun to fight?
    None of them were really fun to fight since they always showed up to be annoying. But Plasma for me again, since they'd sometimes shout "PLASSMAAAA!!!!" when defeated, which is hilarious.

    Who had the best theme music for their battles?
    Plasma. I wish there was a Grunt who would stick around for daily battles so I could hear their epic theme. ;A; It felt like a real epic save-the-world battle each time I heard that music.

    Who (likely) had to put up with the most crap from higher-ups?
    I'm not sure. D:

    And if you absolutely had to be part of an evil team, and be in the lowest tier of the chain of command--what team would you be a Grunt for?
    I'd be a grunt of a team for their leader. So I'd join Magma, Galactic, or Plasma. D:

    I voted for Galactic Grunts in the end. Still a fave a little bit more over Plasma, plus there's the added alliterative appeal. Galactic Grunts. Two hard G's in a row. That's quite neat.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Team Aqua's costumes were pretty cool. Pirates ftw. Team Magma's were okay as well.

    Though overall, I have to say TR.

    Note: This post may be horribly biased due to nostalgia. You've been warned.

    Which team had the best uniforms for the gents?
    TR, followed by Magma.

    Which had the best uniforms for the ladies?
    Same as previous answer.

    Which team's grunts had the best quotes?
    I'd say all of them except Magma and Aqua, but to be fair I haven't played RSE in years, so maybe I forgot some.

    Who was the most fun to fight?
    Whichever one spammed generic-normal-type-found-at-the-beginning-of-the-game less.
    So I'm think Magma or Aqua in terms of diversity.
    However, the following question plays a factor into this, as well as a big evil team base battle at the end (for me anyways, I always liked those, gave me the feeling of a big build-up to the grand finale of battling the boss).

    Hmmm...Galactic.

    Who had the best theme music for their battles?
    Tough call. All are good. But if I had to order them, it would be this:
    TR > Galactic > Plasma > Magma/Aqua

    Who (likely) had to put up with the most crap from higher-ups?
    Galactic or Plasma.

    And if you absolutely had to be part of an evil team, and be in the lowest tier of the chain of command--what team would you be a Grunt for?
    TR, because of the stylish uniforms~
    Plus they're goals aren't as zany as the other teams. Steal Pokémon and valuable objects, profit!

    Team Aqua's are the only ones that don't look completely stupid.

    Which had the best uniforms for the ladies?
    See above statement.

    Which team's grunts had the best quotes?
    Team Rocket. "Oh no, I dropped the LIFT KEY!"

    Who was the most fun to fight?
    Team Magma/Aqua, because there were only two admin fights and you didn't have to go through insane hordes of them like in the other games.


    Who had the best theme music for their battles?
    Team Plasma's theme is intense, especially the intro.

    Who (likely) had to put up with the most crap from higher-ups?
    Team Plasma.

    And if you absolutely had to be part of an evil team, and be in the lowest tier of the chain of command--what team would you be a Grunt for?
    Team Aqua. I want to serve for a cause to wipe out all Zubats!
