Team Rocket Plays Pokémon

Team Rocket Takeover III Stamp Slanted

Meowth: Remember how a couple years ago there was that whole “Twitch Plays Pokémon” thing that was all the rage? Well, Team Rocket decided to replicate it for themselves, to see what would happen. This is Team Rocket Plays Pokémon. (Click the image for a better view.)

Meowth: As you can imagine, getting a bunch of Team Rocket members (and a few invading twerps) to all play a Pokémon game at the same time led to a very hectic situation. Want to know more about this social experiment? Just ask in a comment, and we’ll answer during our Team Rocket Q&A Session, later tonight.

Sword and Shield Special, Episode 109: Mad Dynamax

It is the eve of Sword and Shield’s release, so what better way to celebrate than with a special tie-in episode of Cosmic Quest? Read it here.

An experiment has gone horribly wrong, and now a skyscraper-sized Pokémon is marching toward the Tenno Region, ready to destroy everything in its path. It’s up to Ash, Brock, and Brenda to stop this monstrous Pokémon from going on a never-ending rampage. They will be Tenno’s sword and its shield.

Also, the Tennoan Form page has been updated accordingly.

 

With the release of not only new games, but a new generation, exciting times are upon us. Expect this to be my last episode for the next month or two, as I will first be taking a break to play Shield, and then it will be winter break. However, in the next few weeks you can expect to see a post pop up here that will detail all the ways in which this website, and the Cosmic Quest Project in general, will change in order to be brought up to date with this new generation. Expect a lot of changes. Stay tuned.

Episode 106: That’s the Spirit!

A special guest-written episode has appeared! Read the episode here.

When a mischievous Pichu steals some of Brock’s home cooking, Ash, Brenda, and Rabbolt chase after it, but end up trying to help a Shinx overcome its haunted past. But there’s more to this Shinx than meets the eye.

Also, the Pokédex page has been updated accordingly.

This episode was guest written by my brother, who you might know as the artist of the various sprites and images across this website. He’s the author of his own story, a Sonic the Hedgehog story called The Chaos Project. If you’re interested in Sonic, I highly suggest you give his story a read, I even guest wrote an episode for him in return. Read his story here, or visit his website here. Or, if you just want to read the episode I wrote, see it here.

Finally, be sure to come back to this website on July 5th, the fifth anniversary of Cosmic Quest. I have an absolutely massive announcement to make regarding the future of the Tenno Region, and you’re not going to want to miss it.

Episode 104: Connective Pikachu

The time has nearly arrived. The first ever live-action Pokémon movie is upon us. Celebrate with this special tie-in/crossover special!

Detective Pikachu Banner

When Ash, Brock, and Brenda arrive in a new city, they find that it has recently suffered from an attack by a rampaging Pokémon. But it turns out it’s a Pokémon that would never naturally show such aggression. It’s a complete mystery why this would happen, and a mystery requires a detective, a great detective.

Also, the Pokédex page has been updated accordingly.

Episode 103 Review

The heroes and the villains switching places. It’s a fun little idea I had a while aback. I thought it would be interesting to see what things would be like if Ash and friends were the ones who had to steal from Team Rocket. My original idea went a little further in the concept and had the episode feature Team Rocket as the main characters attempting to help a random character of the week, while “Team Twerp” kept coming in and interrupting things. It would basically be your typical episode, but with the roles reversed. When it came time to write the episode, I decided that I should keep the focus on Ash and friends, or else it would be too difficult to justify them acting “evil.” By keeping the focus on Ash, Brock, and Brenda, I was able to better show their struggle to adapting to becoming thieves, and how bad they are simply because the only example they have to go off of is Team Rocket’s. Meanwhile, since it isn’t out of character for Jessie, James, and Meowth to do some good when it benefits them, they didn’t need quite as much focus as the twerps.

THE END

Yuni Oha: NO! This isn’t over yet!

Jessie, James, and Meowth: YUNI OHA!?!?

Meowth: What gives, you should be stuck watching Howard the Duck right about now!

Jessie: That warehouse was escape-proof!

Yuni Oha: It was, but it’s not impervious to break-ins! Thanks to an elite team led by Jordan Osceola (Panther J) and SonicInfinity, my location was discovered and reported to some very good friends of mine. I believe you know them already.

Ash: You’re finished, Team Rocket!

Brenda: This website doesn’t belong to you!

Brock: And how dare you force anyone to watch Howard the Duck? That’s a whole new level of evil!

Jessie, James, and Meowth: *Gulp*

Yuni Oha: Let’s get my website back! Solurtle, use Blast Burn!

Ash: Pikachu, use Thunderbolt!

Brenda: Kappaqueous, Hydroshock!

Brock: Blissey, attack with Egg Bomb!

Jessie, James, and Meowth: So much for Hollywood! We’ll get you for this, Yuni Oha! You haven’t seen the last of us! Looks like Team Rocket’s blasting off again!

Team Rocket Will Return in The Team Rocket Movie.

Episode 102 Review

This is one of my darker episodes, right up there with the last episode where Brock got a Certificate of High Medical Honors. What else am I supposed to do? There aren’t really any interesting stakes in a medical story unless the episode is dark.

Anyways, Assimlophage is a Pokémon that I’ve had an idea of for a long time. When I decided to give Brock his new goal of collecting certificates, I knew that one of them would have to be awarded for curing an Assimlophage victim. Pikachu seemed like a natural choice for the personal connection. It also allowed me to give Ash some focus in this episode that he wouldn’t have gotten otherwise. Then I brought in Alistair so I could further develop his rivalry with Brock, and this episode came to be.

Assimlophage is quite literally based off of the bacteriophage virus. Look at an image of the virus, and it’s not had to come to the conclusion that the thing would make an awesome Pokémon. It also draws inspiration from the Borg of Star Trek, a monstrosity that seeks to assimilate those that are not like it, and turn it into itself. Also, resistance is futile.
