'''Team Rocket's mechas''' usually refers to mechas used by [[Jessie]], [[James]], and {{MTR}} in one of their wild schemes. Throughout the {{pkmn|anime}}, {{TRT}} has had many robots and machines. It is unknown how they get them, since they usually have little money, and how they are transported to the location it is to be used at. Most of the time, the robots fail to accomplish their functions and are destroyed, some even before getting a chance to be used. They first appeared in ''[[EP002|Pokémon Emergency!]]'' with the debut of the Meowth Balloon.
====Meowth Balloon====
[[File:Team Rocket Balloon SM.jpg|250px|thumb|The balloon in the {{series|Sun & Moon}}]]
The Meowth Balloon has often been Team Rocket's main mode of [[Transportation in the Pokémon world|transportation]], first used in ''[[EP002|Pokémon Emergency!]]''. It can be given many attachments including rockets, vacuums, nets, fists, and cages. The balloon has been changed on certain occasions as well. It was changed to other Pokémon, such as {{p|Wobbuffet}} or {{p|Gliscor}}, and even items, as in a [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}}. It appeared regularly until the {{series|Best Wishes}}.
The original balloon design was a Meowth head with a raised paw and tail at the back. The basket was green and had two beige sandbags.
