Basho, Buson, and Siranui

The new Rockets from the Raikou Special!

"Adding to the roster of Rocket-Dan members are Bashou and Buson, two members who are at an elite level way beyond Musashi and Kojiro.

Bashou, the blue-headed one, has a cool criminal mind and the "Rocket-Dan's Number One Handsome Guy," while Buson, the blonde, is incredibly strong and intelligent. The two perform a special "Rocket-Dan Tag Battle," which I can only assume to be a regular tag-team battle.

The third guy in the picture is Shiranui-Hakase, the most powerful Rocket-Dan scientist in history! He uses the "Crystal System" to attract electric pokemon, particularly Raikou."
