Prepare for trouble...and make it double!
To protect the world from devastation. To unite all peoples within our nation, to denounce the evils of truth and love. To extend our reach to the stars above.
Jessie! James! Team Rocket blasts off at the speed of light! Surrender now or prepare to fight! Meowth, that's right!
Every Pokémon fan has the Team Rocket motto memorized. Maybe you even recited it along with Jessie and James when they appeared on the original animated series.
Team Rocket is a criminal organization that steals other people's Pokémon. It is led by the evil Giovanni, who is also the Gym Leader of Viridian City.
Jessie and James, who get their names from the outlaw Jesse James, are just two of the organization's agents - and some of the most incompetent. In later versions of the animated series, we meet other representatives of Team Rocket that have better success stealing Pokémon: Butch and Cassidy. But even though Jessie and James repeatedly fail in their schemes, they have a special place in fan's hearts as the original Team Rocket.
Have you ever wondered if you are more like Jessie or more like James? Take this quiz to find out!
