The Meowth Balloon has often been Team Rocket’s main mode of transportation, first used in Pokémon Emergency!. It can be given many attachments including rockets, vacuums, nets, fists and cages. The balloon has been changed on certain occasions as well. It was changed to other Pokémon, such as Wobbuffet or Gliscor, and even items, as in a Poké Ball. It appeared regularly until the Best Wishes series.

In Enter Iris and Axew, they used a new football-shaped purple balloon with the new Team Rocket logo on it and a gray basket. The balloon was extended from their briefcase, but was destroyed by Ash’s Oshawott. It hasn’t been seen ever since. They later started to use Meowth design again in New Places… Familiar Faces!, where it was redesigned; the new design incorporates a blue basket with the new Team Rocket logo and a pair of engines on it, plus a new Meowth portion with no arm and a larger engine on its back.

In The Dream Continues! and then XY series, the Meowth head now has two arms on the balloon and has propeller engines on its blue basket. In addition, it was redesigned to have its mouth open on its portion unlike the previous generations. The balloon portion now also has a ribbed surface.

It was redesigned again in the Sun & Moon series, where the basket is now colored green with a yellow stripe and the new red Team Rocket logo. It also no longer has propeller engines. It still retains the Meowth head design from the XY series, with the only differences being that the head once again has a smooth surface and there is a propeller on the back. As Team Rocket doesn’t travel around the region to follow Ash, it is seen much less frequent than in previous series.
