I wanna be clear that even if it is Jessie and James, I think the character would be "Team Rocket."This is why I feel strongly about taking advantage of this golden opportunity!
Let's see what we have so far:
- Team Rocket (organization) finally came back after 8 years hiatus (HeartGold/SoulSilver) or after 19 years hiatus (Gold/Silver, if you don't want to count remakes) in Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon
- Team Rocket (Jessie, James, and Meowth) finally came back to the video games after 18 years hiatus (Pokémon Puzzle League) or 20 years hiatus (Pokémon Yellow, if you don't want to count spin-offs) in Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee
- Meowth and Persian got new Alolan Forms in Sun/Moon
- you can dress your avatar in Team Rocket uniform in Pokémon GO
I hope Meowth and Team Rocket, especially Jessie and James, will make their resumes bigger after Pokémon Let's Go. They not only need to become relevant but stay relevant. They need to stay relevant after Pokémon Let's Go.
I plan to get both Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee. If you plan to get only one version, get the Eevee version and let Nintendo know on social media that the main reason you got the Eevee version is because you want Meowth on your team. I am also asking Nintendo on social media to make Pokémon Let's Go Meowth where you play as Jessie (female trainers) or James (male trainers) with Meowth as your partner Pokémon. The goal is to convince Nintendo to keep Meowth and Team Rocket, especially Jessie and James, relevant in the video games.
It worked with Toad. Toad fans saw an opening in New Super Mario Bros. Wii... and they seized it. Sure, it has been almost 10 years since Toad finally became a playable character in a main Mario game again but the thing is... Toad and now Toadette are playable in new and upcoming main Mario games... and now Toad finally got his own game again with Captain Toad. Toad fans are still fighting but at least they got Nintendo to build up a big resume for Toad and now Toadette. Whenever I was filling out Nintendo.com surveys about main Mario games, I told them that the main reason I got the games was because I can play as Toad.
That's why I see Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee as a golden opportunity... Meowth fans and Team Rocket (Jessie & James) fans finally have an opening and now we need to seize it!
The characters are also evergreen characters in the anime, and the importance of that is so grand that it goes unstated, even by you, Arcadenik.
Also... unrelated... but maybe the Toad fanbase was too vocal. Now Toadette evolves into Peachette. What the hell is a Toad, then?!
