Butch's partner is Cassidy, and she is one of the few that usually manages to get his name right, much to his frustration. In one of the most famous running gags in the anime series, everyone else calls him either "Biff", "Bill", "Buttch", "Buffy", "Bob", "Hutch", "Butcher", "Patch", "Botch", "Chuck", "Footch" or "Hootch" among others (コサンジ Kosanji in Japanese). Sometimes when she gets it right, he, by habit, tries to correct her and ends up calling himself the incorrect name. This, of course, annoys him to no end, so much so in the Pokémon Chronicles episode Training Daze he said in frustration, "That's it, I'm changing my name."
|Primeape debuted in The Fortune Hunters, and was Butch's first revealed Pokemon. In the episode, it defeated Misty's Staryu in battle, and managed to single-handedly send Jessie and James "Blasting Off Again!".

Then next is Meowth which Team Rocket follow and discover their base as their Pokémon turn against them too.

Butch is named after Butch Cassidy, an American outlaw. His Japanese name, Kosaburo, is meant to diminish his status when compared to James. 二郎 Jirō is a name meaning "second son," while 三郎 Saburō means "third son." Kojiro (James) takes advantage of Jirō, while Kosaburo takes advantage of Saburō.

|Chinese||小三郎 Xiǎo Sānláng||From 小三郎 Kosaburō.|
