A YouTuber Is Collecting Every Time Team Rocket Has Blasted Off

Despite how many times they try, Team Rocket can never beat Ash in the Pokemon anime (except for this one time). Usually, they end up rocketing into the sky, shouting that they’ve “blasted off again!” One intrepid fan has done their best to catalogue each time Team Rocket has blasted off. It’s mesmerising.

YouTuber Preston Ward Condra’s channel seems innocuous enough. They have some wrestling highlights, clips comparing the Japanese and English dub of Pokemon, and a few clips from Spongebob Squarepants. And then there’s this Herculean effort:

Through almost 70 videos, Condra caps each and every time Jesse and James are hurled up into space, with the episode or movie the clip is from in the description. If you aren’t up to watching the whole thing, just know Team Rocket has had their arse kicked around 850 times. Meowth, that’s right.


    That title is hard to really read in my eyeball.

      And man some of that editing. Props to putting it all together, but those cuts, particularly in regards to sound are harsh.
