Awesome: Pokémon: Rise of the Rockets
  • The Dismantling of Soil Colossus, Inc. is full of awesome. Just to name a few:
    • The initial attack on SCI's base, in which Team Rocket's strike team—consisting of, at most, thirty agents, including Surge, Koga, Sabrina, Lafoyae Belrose, Shadow Admin Buzz, and Shadow Admin Slight himself—effortlessly disable power in virtually the entire base, simultaneously mowing down any SCI agents they come across.
    • Koga pulling an Ezio on Nemo Buck, after using a combination of explosions, diversions, and poisons to clear out a hall full of gun-wielding guards.
    • Shadow Admin Sleight blasting down a door designed to survive nuclear explosions using only his Magmortar, before proceeding to demonstrate a ridiculous amount of heat tolerance—meaning, Sleight was more or less unaffected while Buzz and Surge had to cover their faces and use a Tyranitar to block the heat. The physics-defying-ness of this was even lampshaded by his target and Sleight himself.
    • Even after falling under powerful Mind Control, Sleight manages an Unflinching Walk directly toward Carl Sandrock, the man responsible for Soil Colossus' crimes, and kills him, all the while delivering a "The Reason You Suck" Speech—unfortunately, not before Surge is forced to shoot Buzz.
    • This isn't even getting into all of the awesome Badass Boasts peppered throughout the seven or eight posts composing this arc.
    • Moreover, this entire sub-plot demonstrated why Sleight—who until then had never truly shown his prowess in anything but mind games, threats, and public manipulation—is the top dog in Team Rocket. Authority Equals Asskicking, indeed.
