31. Team Rocket/Giovanni
What Makes Them Bad: Setting out to capture all the world's rarest and most valuable Pokemon, they'll stop at nothing to get what they want.
What Makes Them Cool: The motto, the duds, the incompetenceâ€”prepare for trouble and make it double.
Team Rocket seems a little meaner by way of the Pokemon games rather than the anime series, and that's a good thing, because at the very least they bring some occasionally challenging battles in-game as well as after-battle spoils. But the classic Jessie and James duo are what make us giddy for our youth, because we can still remember every single line of that motto.
