Cassidy (Japanese: ヤマト Yamato) is one half of the Team Rocket duo that occasionally runs across Ash Ketchum and his friends in the Pokémon anime.
Cassidy's partner is Butch, and she is one of the few that usually manages to get his name right, however she has gotten his name wrong on many occasions - much to his frustration as everyone else also calls him either "Biff", "Bill", "Bob", "Hutch", "Butcher", "Patch", "Botch", or "Buffy", among others (コサンジ Kosanji in Japanese).
Cassidy and Jessie met either before or shortly after their both joining Team Rocket, and are assumed to have been rivals since then. The two women are almost equally vain. However, unlike Jessie, Cassidy keeps her cool easier and is much less prone to violent outbursts. Cassidy annoys Jessie to no end with her arrogance, and it appears that Cassidy likes instigating this frustration. She also often referenced to Jessie, her awareness of Giovanni's dislike towards the Trio, and that they were likely to be thrown out of Team Rocket, something that Jessie usually ignores.
|| Controlled Pokémon
| These Pokémon were temporarily controlled by Butch and Cassidy for another scheme using Drowzee to hypnotize them. They include: Pikachu, Togepi, Meowth, Arbok, Lickitung, Weezing, Victreebel, Wartortle, Vulpix, Mankey, Primeape, Growlithe, Poliwag, Ponyta, Magnemite, Grimer, Kingler, Voltorb, Hitmonchan, Seaking, Starmie, Electabuzz, Magikarp, Vaporeon, Jolteon and Flareon. Pikachu and Togepi were the first to get hypnotised including a whole lot more and suddenly they just disappear. Then next is Meowth which Team Rocket follow and discover their base as their Pokémon turn against them too.
When Ash, Misty, Tracey and Officer Jenny find the base the Pokémon attack with numerous moves. Ash has an idea and makes Pikachu uses Electric moves making it angry, Ash then stands near Drowzee and Pikachu shocks him and the machine stopping Drowzee and stopping the trance.
Their known moves are: Flamethrower (used by Flareon, Growlithe, Ponyta and Vulpix), Water Gun (used by Seaking, Starmie, Vaporeon, Wartortle and Poliwag), Thunderbolt (used by Electabuzz, Jolteon and Magnemite) and Selfdestruct (used by Voltorb).

Cassidy is named after Butch Cassidy, an American outlaw. Her Japanese name, Yamato, is named after the 大和 Yamato, a World War II-era Japanese battleship. Its sister ship was the 武蔵 Musashi, one of Jessie's namesakes.
