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 and get destroyed, some even before getting a chance to be used. They first appeared in Pokémon Emergency! with the debut of Team Rocket's Balloon.
