The Team Rocket Movie

Are you prepared for trouble? Well, you better make it double! The biggest summer blockbuster of the year has finally been released! Read it here!

Team Rocket Movie Poster

Just as our favorite villains are contemplating their lives, Giovanni calls to assign them one of their most important assignments yet. After their partner in the mission, Pierce, ridicules their incompetence, Jessie, James, and Meowth decide that it’s time to turn over a new leaf and get serious. But when they learn of world-threatening scheme, this “new and improved” Team Rocket must reassess their lives and core values. Includes the Meowth Short “Meowth and the Treasure of the Ancients.”

This movie is a musical with three songs, including a fan-made “dub” of a previously Japanese-only song, and a completely original song. Check out the Cosmic Quest Youtube channel for a playlist of these songs so you can listen along while you read. Author notes in the story will tell you when to play each song.

In addition, a new background based on the movie poster has been added to the Bonus Content page.

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.

It’s All Connected… and a Word on The Team Rocket Movie

We have officially entered May, the month that will see the release of Detective Pikachu. In only a week and two days, this ground-breaking film will at long last be a reality. To celebrate, I made a second Detective Pikachu desktop background:

It’s all connected, the only question is how. Find out in Cosmic Quest’s upcoming Detective Pikachu special!

 

Also, as you may know, the lack of new episodes over the past month have been due to me writing The Team Rocket Movie. I wanted to officially state that in order to make this movie as enjoyable as possible, I am delaying its release. Instead of coming before the Detective Pikachu special, it will come some time after. Hopefully not too long. Trust me, the wait will be worth it.

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.

Team Rocket Q&A Session II

Team Rocket Takeover II Stamp Tilted

Meowth: Can I get a drum roll please?

*Drums*

Jessie and James: It’s time for our main event! The Team Rocket Q&A Session!

Meowth: You guys have been posting questions all day, and now it’s our turn to answer them!

James: You’re about to get to know us on a whole new level!

Jessie: Let’s start things off with a question from BTH777. They ask, “Aside from the Team Rocket Movie, which Pokémon movie is your guys’s favorite?”

James: Just to be clear, this question was asked before either my Rocket Reviews episode or the Bossies aired. For reasons stated there, I think we can all agree that Mewtwo Strikes back is our favorite movie.

Meowth and Jessie: Agreed.

James: Next question! PokeMan96 asks, “How do you guys afford to make so many mechas?”

Meowth: You saw the post about us selling mechas? It’s scams- I mean, it’s marketing strategies like that which keep us funded.

Jessie: Of course, any extra cash we have goes into my wardrobe shopping.

James: Leaving us with no money left over…

Meowth: Okay, a user who was later identified as MajorBrony95 asked tree questions at once.

James: Let’s take them one at a time.

Meowth: Agreed. First they ask, “We know James collects bottle caps as a hobby, but do Jessie or Meowth have any hobbies?”

Meow We’re Talking, Episode 2

Team Rocket Takeover II Stamp Tilted

Announcer: Welcome to Meow We’re Talking, the only talk show hosted by a Pokémon!

Meow Were Talking

Announcer: And here’s your host! Meowth!

*Pre-Recorded Applause*

Meowth: Helloooooo internet! Let me just say, it’s great to be back! Did you miss me? Of course you did! Let’s kick this show off! Tonight we have quite a group of guests! It’s all my Pokémon co-stars from the upcoming Team Rocket Movie! Put your paws together for Mime Jr.!

*Applause*

Mime Jr.: Mime!

Meowth: Wobbuffet!

Wobbuffet: Wobbuffet!

Meowth: Repiv!

Repiv: Repivvvvvvv!

Meowth: Haking!

Haking: Hak hak!

Meowth: Buzzsaw!

Buzzsaw: Buzzzz zzzz zzzz zz zzzzzz!

Meowth: And Ivine!

Ivine: Ivine vine!

*Applause continues*

Meowth: A big welcome to all of you. It’s great to have the entire Pokémon cast here, in one place.

Ivine: Vine ivine!

Meowth: You got that right, buddy! With all of us being Team Rocket Pokémon, I feel we’ve always been close, but shooting a movie together really did bring us closer, wouldn’t you guys agree?

Mime Jr.: Mime mime, mime.

Meowth: Alright, I’ve got to start things off by congratulating Wobbuffet on his earlier Bossy Award for Best Team Rocket Pokémon. I must say, I’m shocked it wasn’t me, but if it wasn’t me, then I guess you deserved it.

Wobbufet: *Holds up trophy* Wobbuffet!

Meowth: No need to gloat. Anyways, since we got the gang together, I figured I’d ask Repiv here a question.

Repiv: Pivvvvv?

Meowth: Okay, nearly 20 years ago, back when you were just a wee Ekans, you went on record claiming that there are only bad people, and no bad Pokémon. You’ve become pretty famous for this assertion. Now that you’re older and wiser, have you finally changed your mind?

Repiv: Repivvvv pivvv repivvvvvvvvv.

Meowth: … … … Realy? You sure about that?

Repiv: *Nods* Pivvvv.

Meowth: *Sighs* Okay, to each his own, I guess. Changing the topic, Mime Jr., I had to do some hard bargaining with James to let you stay up past your bedtime to appear on the show. How are you feeling right now?

Mime Jr.: Mime mime mime!

Meowth: Glad to hear it. Okay, and Haking, I heard you have a pretty big scene in The Team Rocket Movie. Anything you think you could tell the audience about?

Haking: Hak hak! Haking! Hak hak hak! Hak!

Meowth: Excuse me, spoilers! You should be more courteous to our audience, who know nothing about the movie and want it to be a surprise. You just gave the entire plot twist away!

Haking: Haking…

Meowth: Oh well, nothing can be done about it now. Hey, that reminds me. I’ve got a preview of The Team Rocket Movie to show. Hows about we watch that thing? Roll the clip!

Jessie, James, and Meowth stand at one end of a large corridor with metal walls, roof, and floor. Jessie begins to take a step forward, saying, “Well, that device isn’t going to steal itself.”

A stern voice suddenly shouts from behind them, “Stop right there! Don’t move another inch!”

Jessie’s foot freezes an inch from the floor. She and the others turn around to see someone else behind them. With long dark blue hair and a black trench coat, it’s the mysterious Team Rocket Operative Pierce. James says, “No way! It’s Pierce! We haven’t seen you since Unova!”

Meowth adds, “Yeah, you were supposed to help us with some sort of mission in Castelia City dealing with the Meteonite. Say, what ever happened to that mission? Why was it cancelled anyways?”

Jessie asks, “More to the point, what are you doing here, and why do I have to stay like this?” She beckons to her hovering foot.”

Pierce says nothing else and pulls out a spray canister. He begins to to spray its contents around the room. As the mist of the aerosol spreads, it reveals red laser lights criss-crossing across the corridor.

Jessie leaps back once she realizes that her foot was just above one such laser. “Yikes!”

Pierce stows away the canister and states critically, “The Boss sent me here as back up, due to the importance of this mission. This room is protected by security lasers. Make contact with just one of the beams, and you’ll set off the facilities security system.” He looks them over critically. “I expected better from you three.” Without another word, he leaps forward. With a complex series of leaps, flips, rolls, ducks, and weaves, Pierce makes his way to the other side of the corridor, never once touching a beam.

Jessie, James, and Meowth watch with dumbfounded awe. Meowth comments, “This guy is unreal!”

James disagrees, “No, he’s the real deal.”

Jessie adds, “No wonder they call him ‘elite’. He’s amazing…”

*Applause*

Meowth: Meow we’re talking. See, doesn’t that look like a great movie? I was shocked when they told us that Pierce was going to be in the movie. I thought that guy vanished off the face of the Earth.

Wobbuffet: Wobba?

Meowth: Yeah, he’s from Unova. For whatever reason, you weren’t around at the time, so you wouldn’t know him. But trust me, he was one of the more interesting parts of our time in Unova.

Buzzsaw: Buzzzz zzzz zzz zz zzzz!

Meowth: Unova wasn’t that bad.

Mime Jr.: Mime, mime mime.

Meowth: Okay, yeah. It was that bad. But things got better, and now we have our own movie, so it doesn’t matter anymore. Look at that, that’s all the time we have for tonight! Thank you all for watching. If you have any questions for me, or any of my guests, be sure to leave a comment and ask. The Team Rocket Q&A Session is nearly upon us. Bye!

Eat Rocket-Os!

We interrupt this program for a message from our sponsor.

Kid 1: Sigh. I wish we had something better for breakfast than this boring toast.

Kid 2: Yeah, we’re evil geniuses in the making. We need to fuel our insidiousness.

James: *Appears from nowhere* I can fix that!

Kid 1 and 2: James from Team Rocket!?

James: To borrow a friend’s line, that’s right! And I’ve come with the solution to all your breakfast-based problems! *Snaps finger*

Kid 2: I feel more evil already!

James: That’s the spirit! And don’t forget, every box of Rocket-Os comes with a free Team Rocket trading card! See if you can collect all eight!

Kid 1: Woah! I got a Jessie card!

Kid 2: I got a James card!

James: Naturally, the best card.

Kid 1: I’ll trade!

Kid 2: No way!

Kid 1: Fine, I’ll just take it!

Kid 2: Hey, give that back!

James: See? Just a few bites and they’re already committing petty thefts.

Kid 1 and 2: Thanks Rocket-Os!

James: And for those who like to walk on the darker side, try Chocolate Rocket-Os! Available in the cereal aisle.
