This is actually how I prefer Team Rocket, I like it when absolutely no other character takes their antics seriously. I like seeing them setting up a plan for half the episode only for it to not even be considered a threat (though it was far less than half an episode here.) I think they work best as joke villains because it's a bit jarring when Ash and gang take them seriously in SM and Journeys especially.Team Rocket were as pointless as ever in this episode but I did find it funny whilst Team Rocket were doing their motto, Ash grabbed the key and started to free Pikachu
I really love the scene from the end of OI where Team Rocket wants to steal Gary's Eevee, so they set up a giant stage in the forest to perform their motto on when Gary walks by and he doesn't even notice it and keeps walking past them.
