Team Rocket Motto

So, I mentioned at my earlier post that a junior reminded me of my past, and a couple days since then I’ve been scavenging my old files and searching the internet for some old games and anime I enjoyed at good old days.

Ta da, here’s the team rocket motto from pokemon!!!

Japanese Translation English
ムサシ: なんだかんだと聞かれたら Musashi: If you ask us something or other… Jessie: Prepare for trouble!
コジロウ: 答えてあげるのが世の情け Kojirō: The answer we give will be the compassion of the world! James: Make it double!
ムサシ: 世界の破壊を防ぐため Musashi: To prevent the destruction of the world! Jessie: To protect the world from devastation!
コジロウ: 世界の平和を守るため Kojirō: To protect the peace of the world! James: To unite all peoples within our nation!
ムサシ: 愛と真実の悪をつらぬく Musashi: To carry out the evils of truth and love! Jessie: To denounce the evils of truth and love!
コジロウ: ラブリー・チャーミーな敵役 Kojirō: The lovely, charmy villains! James: To extend our reach to the stars above!
ムサシ: ムサシ Musashi: Musashi! Jessie: Jessie!
コジロウ: コジロウ Kojirō: Kojirō! James: James!
ムサシ: 銀河をかけるロケット団の二人には…… Musashi: The pair from Team Rocket soars through the galaxy! Jessie: Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light!
コジロウ: ホワイトホール、白い明日が待ってるぜ Kojirō: A white hole, a white tomorrow awaits us! James: Surrender now or prepare to fight!
ニャース: にゃんてにゃ Nyarth: Something like that! Meowth: Meowth! That’s right!

You can see that the English motto varies quite greatly from the English translation of the original motto. But my favourite is still the Bahasa version:

James: “Jika ada yang bertanya apa dan siapa.”

Jessie: “Maka akan kami beri tahu jawabannya!”

James: “Demi menjaga perdamaian dunia.” Jessie: “Demi menjaga ketentraman dunia.”

James: “Pahlawan yang bergerak karena rasa cinta.” (not sure)

Jessie: “Pahlawan yang bergerak demi impian dan kesetaraan.” (not sure)

James: “Jessie!”

Jessie: “James!”

James: “Kami dua orang anggota Team Rocket yang hebat.”

Jessie: “Masa depan indah ada dihadapan kita!”

Meowth: “Dan aku Meowth!”

For those who have seen them before, I’m quite sure that in your head, you’re reading their motto with their sound hehe 😄
