Team Rocket ordered back from Alola because of lack of results?

On Bulbapedia, it states that Team Rocket was ordered back to HQ from Alola because Giovanni grew tired from their lack of results. It also states that Team Rocket didn't bring Mimikyu and Marenie with them because they wouldn't be happy at the HQ. But neither of these have been explicitly stated (or even implied, to my knowledge) in SM146. So why is Bulbapedia stating these?

Bulbapedia is not known for its accuracy. Where did you see that?

I don't know about Giovanni's orders, but it was pretty much implied that Mareanie and Mimikyu were very happy living with Bewear and TRio didn't want to separate them from there.
Every time TR has a memorable team member, they rarely let them keep 'em for the long haul. I still miss Mimikyu, smh.

I'm no proponent of Bulbapedia but on this occasion both things are actually true.

The Mimikyu/Hidoide thing Musashi and Kojiro explicitly stated at the end of SM122.

Gotta wonder if Giovanni sent another team out Alola after Jessie and James were called back. It kinda seems he would have had to do that with previous regions given that we’ve got TR members with Pokémon from regions where TR doesn’t exist, also having objects like Mega Stones.

Interesting thing about this: It's different from what Matori said in the dub, and Sakaki doesn't seem angry with them. Maybe there is an error in subs?
