Detective Meowth

Team Rocket Takeover II Stamp Tilted

Meowth: So, tell me something, guys.

James: What is it, Meowth?

Meowth: So, this whole Hollywood thing has gotten me thinking about something.

Jessie: So spit it out. What is it?

Meowth: So, this May marks the release of the first Pokémon movie made in Hollywood, Detective Pikachu. It had me thinking, why is it always Pikachu?

James: What’s that supposed to mean?

Jessie: Are you trying to make some sort of commentary on the futility of our perpetual endeavor to purloin Pikachu?

Meowth and James: … … …

Jessie: What?

Meowth: No, that’s not what I meant. What I’m saying is that why is it always Pikachu that’s the center of attention. What’s the draw to an overgrown rodent with a habit of electrocuting people? Why does everyone seem to love Pikachu so much?

James: Well, Pikachu is the mascot of the franchise.

Meowth: But why? Pikachu is loved because it’s a mascot, but what makes worthy of being a mascot?

Jessie: What are you suggesting, exactly?

Meowth: I say that now that we have the power of the internet on our side, we start an effort to rebrand Pokémon with a new, superior mascot.

James: Let me guess, that mascot would be-

Meowth: Meowth, that’s right! And to kick things off, I propose a change. No longer will there be Detective Pikachu, but instead Detective Meowth!

Detective Meowth

Jessie and James: Of course…

Meowth: What? Do you not believe this would work? Just look at Detective Pikachu. It’s a movie about a talking Pokémon who’s quick on his wits and good in a jam. Who else does that describe? Obviously me. I would be perfect as the lead Pokémon of the movie. And instead of having some actor voice over Pikachu, I could actually speak for myself. I am the only talking Pokémon there is, after all.

James: Except for Mewtwo.

Jessie: Or Lugia.

James: Or Jirachi

Jessie: Or Lucario.

James: Or Darkrai.

Jessie: Or-

Meowth: Telepathy doesn’t count! I can talk by actually moving my mouth and making words come out! Which is exactly what they need for a Detective Meowth film!

Jessie and James: Whatever you say…

Meowth: You two don’t know what you’d be missing. Alright readers of Cosmic Quest, it’s up to you. Without your demand, we’ll never be able to turn Detective Pikachu into a movie that’s actually worth watching. Detective Meowth can be a reality, we’ve just got to make sure that the makers of that movie know what the people want. So let’s let them know in no uncertain terms, Detective Meowth isn’t just the movie we want, it’s the movie we deserve! And if you have any questions about how a Detective Meowth movie, be sure to leave a comment and ask so we can answer in the Team Rocket Q&A Session later today.


Seluna and Terratlas

And here they are, the cover Pokémon of Luna and Terra Versions (If you haven’t seen the actual covers yet, make sure to check out the previous post):


Classification: The Lunar Pokémon
Type: Dark/Rock
Description: According to myth and legend, Seluna, under the guidance of the Cosmic Architect, created all of the moons in the solar system. It’s crowning achievement is the Earth’s moon, where it is said to dwell.
Does not Evolve

Trivia: Seluna is the cover Pokémon of Luna Version. The pattern on its upper chest is meant to invoke the actual Moon. It’s name is derived from Selene, the Greek goddess of the Moon, combined with Luna, the scientific term for the Moon. It’s red eyes are meant to invoke the theme of having a “red” legendary each generation, such as Ho-oh, Groudon, Palkia (it’s more of a pink, but close enough), Reshiram (it glows red), and Yveltal, all of which are based off of Red Version and Charizard.


Classification: The Terra Pokémon
Type: Ground/Water
Description: In legend, Terratlas was created by the Cosmic Architect in order to construct the planets of the solar system. It is said to have modeled the Earth in its own image. It is rumored to live in high Earth orbit, always watching its prized creation.
Does not Evolve

Trivia: Terratlas is the cover Pokémon of Terra Version. Its name is a combination of the Latin term terra, meaning the Earth, and Atlas, the Greek Titan that held the Earth on its back. The main landmass on Terratlas’ stomach is meant look like the Kanto region, while the landmass on his shoulders (the one with the mountains) is meant to invoke Tenno, and the one on his hand with the volcano is meant to invoke Hoenn. The white on its head and feet are meant to be polar ice caps. Terratlas’ blue eyes are meant to relate it to the trend of having a blue legendary cover Pokémon, continuing the tradition of Lugia, Kyogre, Dialga, Zekrom (it glows blue), and Xerneas, all which stem from Blastoise back in Blue Version.

In addition, the Attackdex/Abilitydex has been updated with these Pokémon’s signature moves and abilities. Also, make sure to visit my Fan Fiction profile page to vote on which game you would pick.
