    The person making the graph forgot "Blasting off again"…

  2. TehVortex on July 12th, 2011 2:18 pm

    No segment for cross-dressing?

  3. ChemicalKirby on July 12th, 2011 2:18 pm

    The non-orange slices are WAY to big.

    There should be a section for "Reciting their theme song for long enough that someone could escape."

  6. Gary_Blue on July 12th, 2011 2:30 pm

    Well actually they were either trying to steal Ash's Pikachu or [Insert Pokemon themed in that week's episode].

    So they had side interests. Hobbies, if you will.

    Yet another example of why Pac-Man ruins organizations.

  8. Kamelot on July 12th, 2011 2:35 pm

    Team Rocket does not solely comprise of Jessie and James, they just happen to be the most retarded duo to follow.
    The only real team though, since the rest are all just knockoffs of the originals.

  9. Psycroc on July 12th, 2011 2:38 pm

    Jessie & James = not even part of Team Rocket, actually.

    What Team Rocket should have done to get Pikachu

    It's just that simple

  11. HughbertEsq on July 12th, 2011 2:50 pm

    They forgot successfully blowing up a WHOLE FRIGGIN' HOSPIT- wait, it was just a Pokemon centre?
    Oh well, c'est la vie…

  12. MC Ninja on July 12th, 2011 3:03 pm

    One day, that Meowth hot air balloon that has been destroyed in almost every episode is bound to work.

  13. penguindude42 on July 12th, 2011 3:06 pm

    At least Jessie & James didn't try destroying Sinnoh with a Mew-powered orbital death laser on a space station, nor they bring the heroes aboard it without putting them in chains first.

    Silver is a damn idiot when he's a villain.

    The Graphs Don't Lie!

    Rockets don't blow. "Rockets EXPLODE!!!"-Woody [Toy Story]

  16. greenxboy on July 12th, 2011 3:27 pm

    Dont forget try to free pokemon by kicking them

  17. CriticalQuit on July 12th, 2011 3:32 pm

    To be fair, they only sent Jessie and James to capture Pikachu so the real Team Rocket could do real crimes.

    Kinda like Zim's exile to earth in the form of an invasion mission. With him stationed there, he wouldn't destroy the rest of the invaders like the first time.

    Things Team Rocket's Pokemon did over the past ten years:
    -- Come to deep, philosophical conclusions on multiple occasions, the first while separated from their owners on an amusement park filled with gigantic, killer robotic Pokemon.
    -- Realize that they are immune to poisonous gases because the animator decided not to draw a nose.

  19. TheFoolOfMon on July 12th, 2011 4:15 pm

    And this is why i now rule team rocket! and i just took all your mudkips. (evil exit here….and a spah)

  20. OrionX on July 12th, 2011 4:22 pm

    Well, considering it's a Pikachu that manages to electrocute an Onix and do well at the Pokémon League, but still have trouble with the first gym of each region, I'd say it's an oddity worth stealing and investigating…

  21. AuraMaster on July 12th, 2011 4:42 pm

    If you can credit Team Rocket at all, at least they were persistent in their goal.

  22. Alpar on July 12th, 2011 4:49 pm

    Hey, come on, Plasma was somewhat lame but they were kind of impressive. Arguably closer to their goals than the other teams.

  23. Alpar on July 12th, 2011 4:50 pm

    This graph wouldn't exist if Jessie and James checked their mail every now and then. They'd have figured out Giovanni fired them a long time ago in this case, not even catching any Pokemon to boot.

  24. Xolopitli on July 12th, 2011 4:53 pm

    Maybe if Ash evolved Pikachu, THEY WOULDN'T HAVE THIS PROBLEM!!

  25. BTSnoogans on July 12th, 2011 5:05 pm

    You'd think that because Team Rocket is only good for stalking one kid, the police force might actually be able to catch on but you'd be wrong.

  26. RespectfulGlove on July 12th, 2011 5:09 pm

    While we're at the subject of Pokemon Criminal Organizations:

  28. Ryven on July 12th, 2011 5:49 pm

    what I don't get is the fact that there's plenty of pikachu out there to catch… why ash's???!

  29. vash_ts on July 12th, 2011 6:47 pm

    hey, the team rocket where geniuses, they had the only talking pokemon that understood the pokemon and the human language!!

  30. MasterLuigi452 on July 12th, 2011 7:02 pm

    Looking at Too Much Free Time tag….
    Yup. They have it.

  31. Red_Zero on July 12th, 2011 7:46 pm

    But, the thing is, we don't know the scale of this measures, the non-orange slices can be a huge ammount of time invested. If they have limited personel to perform this acts, it's another matter entirely.

  32. Ragnellrok on July 12th, 2011 8:40 pm

    Team Rocket: Time spent doing anything related to rockets, like 5 minutes maybe…..
    Team Magma: Time spent doing anything related to magma, about 95% of the story….
    Team Aqua: Time spent doing anything related to water… again 95% of the story….
    Team Galactic: Time spent doing things related to the Galaxy and its' reconstruction….. 99%
    Team Plasma: Time spent doing things related to plasma…. 0%……

    Obviously Team Plasma took a page out of Team Rockets' planner…. should have gone with magma or aqua or something.

  33. Psycroc on July 12th, 2011 9:40 pm

    I remember them being fired. So they kept chasing Pikachu in order to become Team Rocket again. Or so I remember, it's been years

  34. Frentzen127 on July 12th, 2011 9:55 pm

    Everybody knows a TOP FUCKING PERCENTILE Pikachu is worth that much time.
    It's a pity Ash's isn't, its not as if its that difficult to tell!

  35. BoxeyBrown on July 12th, 2011 10:18 pm

    I think "Erect a huge ass castle" needs to be larger, they probably worked on that for years!!!

  36. BoxeyBrown on July 12th, 2011 10:21 pm

    Maybe they're just luring us into a false sense of security with they're acts in the TV show. Secretly they plan to take over the real world…

  37. Red on July 12th, 2011 11:24 pm

    You forgot
    Singlehandedly defeated by a ten year old, forcing the shut-down of their entire organization

    I just broke the page! :D

  40. TomQuoVadis on July 13th, 2011 3:18 am

    You know, now is a good time to bring up the definition of insanity…

  41. Omnomynous on July 13th, 2011 7:31 pm

    Team rocket has done a bit. They steal pokemon from trainers for a profit (Top that, Plasma),proved Legendaries can have babies(and can be captured), and even created the first Shadow Pokemon. (Pokemon 4Ever, that Tyranitar as a BEAST.)

    Jessie, James, & Meowth however…..
