Meowth's view of Giovanni.

The boss fantasy is a segment in the Pokémon anime where Meowth thinks of practical uses for the Pokémon being focused on in the current episode. Through this, the Giovanni in Meowth's imagination rewards Team Rocket for their generosity, which gives Jessie and James the motivation to go through with their next plan. The segment debuted in The Kecleon Caper and became as regular as the motto and blast off for a while during the Hoenn saga.

On rare occasions, the fantasy will not pan out to plan and Giovanni's unhappiness encourages the trio to do something else instead.
