Pokemon: The Team Rocket Trio Has Retired (But Fans Don't Think It's For Good)

Although many fans expected the iconic Team Rocket trio to get a heartfelt sendoff from the series in much the same way that Ash Ketchum is getting, their story appears to end on an extremely somber note. This broke the hearts of many fans online who’ve fallen in love with the bumbling villains over the past 26 years. 

“Wait, wait, hold on.. I wasn’t ready for this..” tweeted @AnipokeFandom, posting several pictures that show the Team Rocket Trio saying their final farewells and walking away as all of their other pokemon look on sadly. “Don’t tell me that they split like that, is very out of character,” responded @retroanimediva. “They are like an [sic] small family. Canonically they should still stick together.” Indeed, many fans agree that this conclusion to the Team Rocket storyline was incredibly unsatisfying, and some believe that they haven’t split up for good. Twitter user @Kekulaaa theorized that the Team Rocket trio would have to reunite one final time to save Ash from an unknown foe in the finale, while @PuzzledSloth wondered if they might return for the upcoming series even after Ash is gone. 

It’s clear that many fans online refuse to believe that the original Team Rocket trio has split up for good, not only because it seems wildly out of character for them after so many years of bonding, but also because fans believe they deserve a better goodbye. In any case, viewers hoping for the miraculous return of Team Rocket will be waiting with bated breath when the finale of “Ultimate Journeys” premieres on March 24th.
