Team Rocket trio

On several occasions, Jessie, James and Meowth have shown that they are not all evil and even have displayed a degree of affection for Ash and his friends. The trio heroically sacrificed themselves to what they thought was certain death in ''[[M02|The Power of One]]'' in order to allow Ash's escape on Lugia. They also saved him from a fall in the next movie, ''[[M03|Spell of the Unown: Entei]]''. Their justification was that in the case of the world being destroyed or Ash's death, they would be [[Breaking the fourth wall|out of show business]], but it is implied that this is just bluster to cover the fact that they are not bad people. In ''[[EP134|Charizard's Burning Ambition]]'', Team Rocket kept [[Ash's Charizard]] awake as it lay in the lake, and then built a huge mecha and attacked the [[Charicific Valley]] for the sole purpose of allowing Charizard to defeat them and gain acceptance in the valley. In ''[[SM049|Mission: Total Recall!]]'', when [[Faba]] asked them to help him drain memories from {{an|Lillie}}, they blatantly refused, citing their belief that all memories, good or bad, should be preserved at any cost.
The Team Rocket trio generally have a poor battling record, usually getting defeated by Ash and his friends in every encounter.
