Team Rocket once made a silly mistake in judgment. Then, because they did not learn the lesson from the previous time, they made mistakes again.
Team Rocket once made a silly mistake in their logic. They believe they can catch a strong Pokémon by using an even stronger Pokémon to catch it. They seem to have finally realized the problem with this plan, but they made the same mistake in another episode.
It may not happen often, but the fact that Team Rocket made this same logical mistake twice is somewhat confusing. It points to their stupidity and ignorance of how Pokémon works. If they had been a little smarter, they probably wouldn’t have made the same mistake again.
Why does Team Rocket think catching a Pokémon requires a stronger Pokémon?
The first time Team Rocket made this mistake was in Episode 246, “Strange Luck”. They observe a boy named Delaney winning an impressive streak of victories with his Poliwrath. they concluded that if they stole this powerful Pokémon it would be easier to catch Pikachu.
On the surface, this makes sense. While Team Rocket had trouble catching Pikachu, they might have better luck with another powerful Pokémon. If they catch that other strong Pokémon, they can then use it to catch Pikachu. On top of that, not everyone is as willing to let Team Rocket steal their Pokémon as Ash and co. to be; as long as they don’t interfere, they have a chance to steal something. Looking at things like this, stealing a Pokémon stronger than the one they always fail to catch seems like it might work.
The only problem with this logic is how their sense of power scaling works. If they think Pikachu is too hard to catch, then they should also think that the stronger Poliwrath is even harder to catch. They eventually realize this, but their conclusion is simply to steal a Pokémon even more powerful than Poliwrath. But to catch that Pokémon, they need an even stronger Pokémon. They continued with this poor logic until they completely abandoned the idea.
Team Rocket continues to offer a similar logical fallacy in Advanced Generations Episode 10, “You Said a Mouthful!” Here they find a man who claims his Pelipper is the strongest Pokémon in the world, so they decide to steal it, which would require an even stronger Pokémon. Fortunately, they only continued this train of thought for a short while until Meowth bit her tongue for saying “strongly” too many times at once.
Is there a way to get Team Rocket right?
Even if Team Rocket is right in some ways, they’re still wrong. A good Trainer knows that strength isn’t always the deciding factor in a Pokémon battle. It’s also important to consider matches, strategies, moves, and abilities among many other things. Even the strongest Pokémon in the world can be defeated by good test or counter. If Team Rocket considers things like this, then they can win even with their relatively weak Pokémon.
If Team Rocket were determined, they could theoretically steal Pikachu and other powerful Pokémon. They won’t even need Pokémon that are much more powerful than the ones they have. All they have to do is turn the Pokémon they have into a powerful Pokémon. If they do, then they can have any other Pokémon they want, weak or strong.
