Default Why do Ash and his friends never recognize Team Rocket in their disguises?

I mean it's so obvious, why are they so dumb.

Perhaps its because if they were to notice then the show
wouldnt be as good because everytime team rocket would
hatch a plan Ash and the crew would realise them. There are
a lot of things in the pokemon universe that are unrealistic
but without the show wouldnt be very good would it.

This. It's a spam bot designed to look like an actual posting user. Kill it with fire.

Well I dont see much wrong about it. It technically is a posting
user because it posts on the forum and its not like its spamming
us with unnessesary advertisement. Its pretty much just the
same as anyone having links in their signature which point to
other websites.

No matter, the member can be deleted, but since he/she has 42 posts, it points otherwise. But, the question still remains.

The fact is, a lot of things in the show could be stated as unbelievable and obvious. Like when Ash saw Ho-Oh on his first journey, it was obvious, but Ash did not figure it out. It added mystery, it added plot, it added somewhat of a story.

Anyway, about how Team Rocket. Well. You would be surprised how much of the Pokemon show's adventures stemmed from the trio's actions. It would be ludicrous to get rid of the comedic relief and the fillers. I mean, without them, the show would be utterly boring, which it has progressively gotten closer to.

Brock's eyes are always closed, of course he cannot recognize their disguises.

They don't want to complicate things because it is a kid's show.

You know the fact that another bot is answering the other's question to make the thread seem normal already means that these bots are coming from the same source, not only making them a problem because they are BOTS but because they are MULTI-ACCOUNT HOLDING BOTS.

Forget fire, nuke it from orbit. I'm reporting this bot too, btw.

Might I ask why you have such a high obsession with Bots, technically there
is nothing wrong with this post, its providing discussion, so the "bots" arn't doing
any harm, and saying that a bot has "replied" to a post with its own point of
view sounds quite paranoid.

It rips posts from users on Pokecommunity and puts them here. Ignore these bots. A mod will delete it shortly. I'm going to stop responding to these threads in the meantime, I advise you do too.

I been wanting to obliterate this bot for a while, but it does make some good threads (just copied threads from another forum, mind you) and it brings up some discussion where as it doesn't bark back at us for haveing an opinion.

Ash is only 10 man! or is he 11 now.. You can't expect him to notice them all the time, even though when a talking meowth in a buisness suit approaches you, even he should get the memo.

Actually I think the dumb ones were meant to be team rocket but ended up being both ash and his friends, and team rocket!

It's probably because of Team Rocket's strikingly good quality outfits. :P I mean, they must carry about 57 spare changes of clothes with them that are always being carried by the off-scene slaves, and obviously a single piece of clothing changes everything about them, thus making them unidentifiable. I mean, if James were to put a different colour sock on, Ash wouldn't recognise him. I betcha.

Its probably because they dont want to spoil the rest of the episode. cause every episode team rocket has to try to capture Pikachu. Just to keep ratings up i guess....
