I just suffered one of those weird moments when something you’ve known for a long time suddenly appears in a different light.
I’ve been quite familiar with Pokemon for at least 8 or 10 years now, and I’ve read the Pokemon Hall of Fame to the kids numerous times…but only this time, as we reviewed Team Rocket teams ‘Annie and Oakley’ and ‘Butch and Cassidy’ did I stop to wonder why our regular team of Team Rocket Villains did not have some similar witty name…
And then I saw it…Jesse James.
Jesse and James from Team Rocket are named after the bandit Jesse James.
Blew my mind.
