Remember how the nugget bridge was actually ran by Team Rocket back in pokemon red? trying to get recruits? Red said no, but Blue didn't. Remember the first time you see Blue since the start of the game he's coming down from Nugget bridge, and had already met Bill by that point. So he'd met with the Rocket member. Now does it make much sense for that Rocket grunt to challenge Red when he refused to join, and act like no one has refused before?
Then there's more. The next time you meet Blue after the ship, he's where Rockets are, at the Pokemon tower. Then, he's at the top of Silph tower, somehow sneaking past the guards. Also usually you'd need a card key to get to that point, which only the Silph employees and Rockets had. After that, he inherits the leader, Team Rocket's gym.
so why would he not put on the costume and tell everyone he joined team rocket? if he did, his reputation would be ruined and he'd never be able to win all the badges, become pokemon league champion then a gym leader himself. he'd be too busy being wanted by the police.
blue has a deeper character then most would think. --- http://cdn.ientry.com/sites/webpronews/pictures/bestgrandpamikee1_320x245.jpg

Also, his Raticate died. That's why he's at Pokemon Tower. --- #TeamFroakie http://i.imgur.com/9dCB6.jpg

none. Most new Rocket members get a Koffing or a Rattata or a Zubat, or on rare occasion a Drowzee. the first time you see his rattata is when he's coming back from nugget bridge. --- http://cdn.ientry.com/sites/webpronews/pictures/bestgrandpamikee1_320x245.jpg

I do love how Red/Blue/Green had all very deep character meanings in them.
Actually I think gen 1-3 and 5 all had great writing.
What the hell happened with 4? --- I have realized the WoW community and Minecraft community are easily the most pleasant. The rest generally cause me to suffer brain cell loss or head trauma.

Nope. Insufficient evidence provided.
All 'evidence' provided has been circumstantial, or 'suspend your disbelief' game nonsense.
Rival characters in a lot of games inexplicably get to points that required you as the player to take a harder or more sensible way to get to. --- We shall rise again to start anew. White FC: 0862-2660-4156 / 3DS FC: 2492-4470-1418 / White 2 FC: 4556-7836-2644
