'''Team Rocket's mechas''' usually refers to mechas used by [[Jessie]], [[James]], and {{MTR}} in one of their wild schemes. Throughout the {{pkmn|anime}}, {{TRT}} has had many robots and machines. It is unknown how they get them, since they usually have little money, and how they are transported to the location it is to be used at. Most of the time, the robots fail and are destroyed, some even before getting a chance to be used. They first appeared in ''[[EP002|Pokémon Emergency!]]'' with the debut of the Meowth Balloon.

The Meowth Balloon has often been Team Rocket's main mode of [[Transportation in the Pokémon world|transportation]], first used in ''[[EP002|Pokémon Emergency!]]''. It can be given many attachments including rockets, vacuums, nets, fists and cages. The balloon has been changed on certain occasions as well. It was changed to other Pokémon, such as {{p|Wobbuffet}} or {{p|Gliscor}}, and even items, as in a [[Poké Ball]]. It appeared regularly until the {{series|Best Wishes}}.

The Team Rocket trio inside a typical mecha

Team Rocket's mechas usually refers to mechas used by Jessie, James, and Meowth in one of their wild schemes. Throughout the anime, Team Rocket has had many robots and machines. It is unknown how they get them, since they usually have little money, and how they are transported to the location it is to be used at. Most of the time, the robots fail to accomplish their functions and are destroyed, some even before getting a chance to be used. They first appeared in Pokémon Emergency! with the debut of the Meowth Balloon.

In the anime

Recurring mechas

Meowth Balloon

The balloon in the Sun & Moon series

The Meowth Balloon has often been Team Rocket's main mode of transportation, first used in Pokémon Emergency!. It can be given many attachments including rockets, vacuums, nets, fists, and cages. The balloon has been changed on certain occasions as well. It was changed to other Pokémon, such as Wobbuffet or Gliscor, and even items, as in a Poké Ball. It appeared regularly until the Best Wishes series.

The original balloon design was a Meowth head with a raised paw and tail at the back. The basket was green and had two beige sandbags.

In Enter Iris and Axew, they used a new football-shaped purple balloon with the new Team Rocket logo on it and a gray basket. The balloon was extended from their briefcase, but was destroyed by Ash's Oshawott. It hasn't been seen ever since. They later started to use Meowth design again in New Places... Familiar Faces!, where it was redesigned; the new design incorporates a blue basket with the new Team Rocket logo and a pair of engines on it, plus a new Meowth portion with no arm and a larger engine on its back.

In The Dream Continues! and then the XY series, the Meowth head now has two arms on the balloon and has propeller engines on its blue basket. In addition, it was redesigned to have its mouth open on its portion unlike the previous generations. The balloon portion now also has a ribbed surface.

It was redesigned again in the Sun & Moon series, where the basket is now colored green with a yellow stripe and the new red Team Rocket logo. It also no longer has propeller engines. It still retains the Meowth head design from the XY series, with the only differences being that the head once again has a smooth surface and there is a propeller on the back. As Team Rocket doesn't travel around the region to follow Ash, it is seen much less frequent than in previous series.

In the credits of I Choose You!, Team Rocket is seen using the original balloon, last seen in the Diamond & Pearl series.

Team Rocket's submarines

050Diglett.png This section is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.

Powered by pedaling, serves as underwater transportation, has arms that can be extended, and legs that can also be extended on land. Its weapons include nets (once to capture Cresselia) and extendable fists. This was often used by Team Rocket as an alternative mode of transportation while they were pursuing Ash and Pikachu in the Orange Archipelago, though it was first used in Fit to be Tide!.

Occasionally during the Kanto arc, a Gyarados-based submarine was used. Much like the Magikarp submarine, it is powered by pedaling and is equipped with a net launcher, extendable arms, and wheels. Its first Japanese appearance was in Beauty and the Beach, while the English debut came in Sparks Fly For Magnemite.

In The Mystery of the Missing Cubchoo!, they used a generic submarine that wasn't designed after a Pokémon.

During the Decolore Islands arc, Team Rocket used an updated Basculin submarine designed by Dr. Zager.

After a long absence, the Magikarp submarine reappeared in Going for the Gold!, where it was slightly redesigned.

In the Alola region, Team Rocket now uses a Bruxish submarine, which debuted in Balloons, Brionne, and Belligerence!.
