The '''Team Rocket Elite Trio'''<!-- (Japanese: ''' ''' '' '')-->, individually known as '''Ken''' (Japanese: '''ケン''' ''Ken''), '''Al'''{{tt|*|Chuang Yi, Viz vol. 10}}/'''Ryu'''{{tt|*|Viz, Volume 11 only}} (Japanese: '''リョウ''' ''Ryō''), and '''Harry''' (Japanese: '''ハリー''' ''Harry''), are [[Team Rocket]] members who appear in the [[Pokémon Adventures]] manga as part of the {{chap|Red, Green & Blue}} and {{chap|Yellow}} storylines under {{adv|Giovanni}}, and in the {{chap|Gold, Silver & Crystal}} storyline under the [[Masked Man]].
 
   
 
==History==
 
==History==
In the {{chap|Red, Green & Blue}} and the {{chap|Yellow}}, they were all sub-leaders. Ken was under the command of [[Lt. Surge]], Al was under the command of [[Sabrina]], and Harry was under the command of [[Koga]]. They played no real role in this chapter, as they were merely subordinates whose most important appearance was as minions who tried to capture {{p|Mew}}.
+
==={{chap|Red, Green, & Blue}}===
  +
The first of the trio to appear is Ken in ''[[PS016|Tauros the Tyrant]]'', where he appears as one of the people helping with the creation of {{adv|Mewtwo}}. After {{adv|Green}}, steals a data disc with information on {{p|Mew}}, Ken sends several {{tc|Team Rocket Grunt}}s after her. Once they find her, they ambush Green with several Pokémon. With the power of his strong {{p|Tauros}}, Ken nearly manages to defeat her with its ability to control other Pokémon with its tails. However, Green uses her [[Ditty]] to take on the appearance of Ken's Tauros and defeats them by exploiting its ability. Green manages to escape, but leaves a fake data disc behind to trick Ken and the other Grunts.
   
They first appeared facing off against {{adv|Yellow}} on the S.S. Anne, trying to sink it as Team Rocket's return to the criminal scene, and as revealed by Surge later in the chapter, a ploy to lure the [[Elite Four]] out of hiding. They named themselves the new heads of the Team Rocket squads with Sabrina, Koga, and Lt. Surge now out of commission, but they were proven to be much weaker than the initial admins and were outsmarted by Yellow, who used many different tactics to trap them and save the passengers. They were then tied up by [[Kitty|Caterpie]]'s {{m|String Shot}} and presumably taken to jail.
+
After learning that the disc was a fake, Ken becomes furious and sends the Grunts to find Green again. To get them off of her trail, Green has her Ditty take the form of Mew so that it could lead Team Rocket away. The trick does not last long, as Ken manages to catch and defeat Ditty. After returning Green's Pokémon to her, Ken attacks her and {{adv|Red}} while they attempt to capture the real Mew. Ken tries to capture Mew himself, but it retaliates by defeating him and saving Green and Red in the process.
   
In the {{chap|Gold, Silver & Crystal}}, the Team Rocket Elite Trio and other Rockets were brainwashed under the control of the [[Masked Man]], where they were used for several different schemes, but were defeated on every occasion. The final time they appeared was when they were involved in the attack on [[Indigo Plateau]] during the Gym Leader tournament and fought the Gym Leaders onboard the Magnet Train. There they met one of their former leaders, Lt. Surge, who after being attacked by them, helped them break free of the Masked Man's control by reminding them of what they originally stood for.
+
The second to appear is Harry, who appears at [[Seafoam Islands]] to capture {{p|Articuno}}. There, he faces Red, who had come to the island to capture Articuno himself. As they battle, Articuno notices that Red is defending it and attacks Team Rocket while leaving his Pokémon alone. Articuno later flees, forcing Harry and the other Grunts to follow it.
   
Much later, in the {{chap|FireRed & LeafGreen}}, it was revealed that the three were put in charge of transporting {{adv|Deoxys|the two Deoxys}} to their hideout after they had been stolen from the [[Mossdeep Space Center]]. However, as always, they wouldn't go without a colossal blunder when Entity Two escaped the yoke after rampaging madly, and [[Sird]] herself mutters that it was foolish to trust them.
+
The third and last to appear is Al, who attacks [[Blaine]] for betraying Team Rocket. After Red shows up, he gets mixed up in the showdown between Blaine and Team Rocket. With the help of {{p|Moltres}}, they gain an advantage over their enemies, only for it to be defeated by Red's newly-obtained {{p|Aerodactyl}}.
  +
  +
At the [[Silph Co.]] building, Harry and Al attempt to find the intruders, Red, Green, and {{adv|Blue}}, only to be dismissed by Green disguised as Sabrina.
  +
  +
==={{chap|Yellow}}===
  +
In the second chapter, Ken, Al, and Harry reveal that after their defeat at Saffron City, Ken, Al, and Harry, along with other members of Team Rocket that escaped, are aiming to revive Team Rocket. They attempt hijack the [[S.S. Anne]], only for {{adv|Yellow}} to try and stop them. Despite the non-threatening look of her team, Yellow manages to defeat the trio by threatening to drop the now-damaged ship on their heads.
  +
  +
==={{chap|Gold, Silver, & Crystal}}===
  +
In the {{chap|Gold, Silver & Crystal}}, Ken, Al, and Harry appear under the command of the [[Masked Man]]. They first appear attacking {{adv|Gold}}, knocking him unconscious in the process. Ken reveals that they were going to intercept information that was being delivered to [[Professor Elm]], but mistook Gold's backpack for the bag that had the information. After figuring out their mistake, they went back to take the real information as well as stealing Professor Elm's {{p|Chikorita}}, {{p|Cyndaquil}}, and {{p|Totodile}}. When {{adv|Silver}} reveals that Gold has Cyndaquil and that he stole Totodile, Ken gets angry and attacks the boy. Confident that a newly-obtained Pokémon will give Silver a disadvantage, Ken has his Elekid attack, only for it to be defeated by a powerful {{m|Frustration}}. Having been defeated, Ken and the other Team Rocket members retreat.
  +
  +
They later appear at the [[Ruins of Alph]] to capture the {{p|Unown}} inside. There, they face Gold and [[Bugsy]], who had come to investigate the area. After a long battle, Gold and Bugsy manage to disturb the wild {{p|Unown}} inside who then proceeded to attack the trio. After they escaped, the trio were left trapped inside and were forced to solve a puzzle to escape.
  +
  +
Later, they were tasked with the capture of {{p|Suicune}}, which they executed by following [[Eusine]] and tricking him by having a {{p|Ditto}} transform itself into Suicune's likeness. With Eusine distracted, they were able to find Suicune and attempt to capture it. Although Suicune attempts to run away, they follow it on {{p|Girafarig}}'s back, only to be put to sleep by {{adv|Crystal}}'s {{p|Parasect}}'s {{m|Spore}}. After they wake up, they find Eusine had arrived to battle them personally.
  +
  +
By using Spinarak's silk net combined with Elekid's electricity, they were able to create an electric net to give them an advantage in battle. Harry stayed behind while Al and Ken went to continue pursuing Suicune. Harry, although powerful, was defeated when Eusine tricked his Girafarig into shocking itself by biting a metal chain that had been tied to the electric net. Ken and Al were defeated when it was revealed that Eusine had snuck some {{m|Leech Seed|mistletoe seeds}} onto their body, which tied them up. For their defeat, Ken, Al, and Harry were punished by [[Carl]] and [[Sham]] by being chained to a wall. Soon after, they are approached by the Masked Man, who they had not met in person, and are quickly frozen.
  +
  +
During the attack on the Pokémon League, Ken, Al, and Harry were brainwashed with special masks to keep them under the Masked Man's control. There, they faced Lt. Surge, who was horrified to see them attacking their former superior. By reminding them of what Team Rocket stood for, Lt. Surge helped them break free of the Masked Man's control and shatter their masks. Now freed from their control, Lt. Surge leaves the trio to free the other Team Rocket members while he goes to face the Masked Man.
  +
  +
==={{chap|FireRed & LeafGreen}}===
  +
In the fifth chapter, it was revealed that the three were put in charge of transporting {{adv|Deoxys|the two Deoxys}} to their hideout after they had been stolen from the [[Mossdeep Space Center]]. After they arrived in Kanto, the Deoxys had begun changing their appearance, which they reported to [[Sird]]. Soon after, one of the Deoxys escaped, annoying Sird because of her decision to trust the trio.

Ken, Al, and Harry

The Team Rocket Elite Trio, are three Team Rocket members who appear in the Pokémon Adventures manga. Individually, they are known as Ken (Japanese: ケン Ken), Al*/Ryu* (Japanese: リョウ Ryō), and Harry (Japanese: ハリー Harry). As members of Team Rocket, Ken, Al, and Harry are sub-leaders who each serve the three high-ranking members, Lt. Surge, Sabrina, and Koga, respectively.

History

Red, Green, & Blue chapter

The first of the trio to appear is Ken in Tauros the Tyrant, where he appears as one of the people helping with the creation of Mewtwo. After Green, steals a data disc with information on Mew, Ken sends several Team Rocket Grunts after her. Once they find her, they ambush Green with several Pokémon. With the power of his strong Tauros, Ken nearly manages to defeat her with its ability to control other Pokémon with its tails. However, Green uses her Ditty to take on the appearance of Ken's Tauros and defeats them by exploiting its ability. Green manages to escape, but leaves a fake data disc behind to trick Ken and the other Grunts.

After learning that the disc was a fake, Ken becomes furious and sends the Grunts to find Green again. To get them off of her trail, Green has her Ditty take the form of Mew so that it could lead Team Rocket away. The trick does not last long, as Ken manages to catch and defeat Ditty. After returning Green's Pokémon to her, Ken attacks her and Red while they attempt to capture the real Mew. Ken tries to capture Mew himself, but it retaliates by defeating him and saving Green and Red in the process.

The second to appear is Harry, who appears at Seafoam Islands to capture Articuno. There, he faces Red, who had come to the island to capture Articuno himself. As they battle, Articuno notices that Red is defending it and attacks Team Rocket while leaving his Pokémon alone. Articuno later flees, forcing Harry and the other Grunts to follow it.

The third and last to appear is Al, who attacks Blaine for betraying Team Rocket. After Red shows up, he gets mixed up in the showdown between Blaine and Team Rocket. With the help of Moltres, they gain an advantage over their enemies, only for it to be defeated by Red's newly-obtained Aerodactyl.

At the Silph Co. building, Harry and Al attempt to find the intruders, Red, Green, and Blue, only to be dismissed by Green disguised as Sabrina.

Yellow chapter

In the second chapter, Ken, Al, and Harry reveal that after their defeat at Saffron City, Ken, Al, and Harry, along with other members of Team Rocket that escaped, are aiming to revive Team Rocket. They attempt hijack the S.S. Anne, only for Yellow to try and stop them. Despite the non-threatening look of her team, Yellow manages to defeat the trio by threatening to drop the now-damaged ship on their heads.

Gold, Silver, & Crystal chapter

In the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter, Ken, Al, and Harry appear under the command of the Masked Man. They first appear attacking Gold, knocking him unconscious in the process. Ken reveals that they were going to intercept information that was being delivered to Professor Elm, but mistook Gold's backpack for the bag that had the information. After figuring out their mistake, they went back to take the real information as well as stealing Professor Elm's Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile. When Silver reveals that Gold has Cyndaquil and that he stole Totodile, Ken gets angry and attacks the boy. Confident that a newly-obtained Pokémon will give Silver a disadvantage, Ken has his Elekid attack, only for it to be defeated by a powerful Frustration. Having been defeated, Ken and the other Team Rocket members retreat.

They later appear at the Ruins of Alph to capture the Unown inside. There, they face Gold and Bugsy, who had come to investigate the area. After a long battle, Gold and Bugsy manage to disturb the wild Unown inside who then proceeded to attack the trio. After they escaped, the trio were left trapped inside and were forced to solve a puzzle to escape.

Later, they were tasked with the capture of Suicune, which they executed by following Eusine and tricking him by having a Ditto transform itself into Suicune's likeness. With Eusine distracted, they were able to find Suicune and attempt to capture it. Although Suicune attempts to run away, they follow it on Girafarig's back, only to be put to sleep by Crystal's Parasect's Spore. After they wake up, they find Eusine had arrived to battle them personally.

By using Spinarak's silk net combined with Elekid's electricity, they were able to create an electric net to give them an advantage in battle. Harry stayed behind while Al and Ken went to continue pursuing Suicune. Harry, although powerful, was defeated when Eusine tricked his Girafarig into shocking itself by biting a metal chain that had been tied to the electric net. Ken and Al were defeated when it was revealed that Eusine had snuck some mistletoe seeds onto their body, which tied them up. For their defeat, Ken, Al, and Harry were punished by Carl and Sham by being chained to a wall. Soon after, they are approached by the Masked Man, who they had not met in person, and are quickly frozen.

During the attack on the Pokémon League, Ken, Al, and Harry were brainwashed with special masks to keep them under the Masked Man's control. There, they faced Lt.
