    Awwwww...

    Sure, your opponent played terribly, but the format was good, and Team Rocket is good.

    8/10

    Even though your opponent was pretty terrible, Team Rocket team + funny dialogue made it a fun read. Good job!

    I actually laughed out loud at this. Horribly haxxy and pretty poorly played battle it must be said, but the entertaining, unique and actually very nicely written commentary made it a fun read. You didn't go overboard like a lot of people try and do with this sort of thing, it had just enough charm to make it enjoyable.

    I'd love to see more of this, but perhaps try and build a slightly better themed team next time so you stand more chance of getting better battles. Also, pedantically the catching of legendaries bothered me, but I'll let that slide since this was blatantly non-canon lol.

    In my defense a haxxy battle against a bad opponent is probably the only battle this team can hope to win

    Any suggestions for what theme I should do next? :)

    Boss Giovanni: Hmm, here you are, idiots! I hope that battle has been a success! (His Persian growls)
    Jessie: You will be pleased, Boss...
    Giovanni: No more words!... Give me your warstory, please.
    (several minutes later)
    Giovanni: It reminds me another warstory posted a few days ago by Hutch... er Butch and Cassidy, but you've managed to capture several legendary Pokémon. While your rivals only collected common ones such as Excadrill, Jellicent, Conkeldurr, Blaziken...
    Meowth: Does it mean we will be promoted?
    Giovanni: I expected a closer battle from your opponent... He had way better Pokémon than yours and you've defeated him quite easily. Also, format is slightly above-average. However, comments are lackluster.
    Jessie & James: The results, Boss?
    Giovanni: I give your warstory a 5/10! And only because you've brought me Legendary Pokémon! Next time, choose a more challenging opponent, right?

    EDIT: As a Team Rocket fan, I give this warstory a 8/10 (2 points are removed because both Lickitung and Wobbuffet were present).

    Fair point lol. Still, a better team theme may help you get btter battles.

    I'd be willing to see a Gary Oak themed team to this end, especially if you can do his tone as well as you did Team Rockets'!

    I really liked it! Even if your opponent didn't play well, you really captured how Team Rocket talks among itself: Cooperative but semi-dysfunctional, and humorous.

    Your opponent was stupid (Hyper Beam Lucario...), but who cares, Team Rocket! I wonder Arbok was the last Pokemon, right? 7,5/10 Keep writing :)

    You can't have Lickitung and Wobbufett on the same team, Jesse traded Licky for Blobbo. Otherwise, it's still a hilarious story. Good job.

    Uhhh...That guy in the Sinnoh finals used a Darkrai and a Latios. Besides Team Rocket being unable to catch ANYTHING, the canon was upheld. But, more on topic, it was really funny. Clearly not the most skilled opponent, but fun to read

    He used Protect on the first turn.

    Pretty funny. No need for me to beat a dead horse and repeat everybody else.
