From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
A Galactic Grunt (Japanese: ギンガだんのしたっぱ Team Galactic Underling) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation IV games. They are the grunts of Team Galactic. There are male and female versions, and they all dress in the spacesuit-looking outfits that are the Team Galactic uniforms and have light blue hair that is cut quite short and rounded.
In the games
In the games, Galactic Grunts generally act as footsoldiers and guards for Team Galactic. Like all villain team Grunts, they are not individually named. Unlike other team grunts however, such as Rocket grunts, Aqua grunts and Magma grunts, Team Galactic grunts don't seem to get what are the global objectives of the team and often speak nonsense about them, which makes them look silly as to why they joined the team in the first place. Sometimes, certain Galactic grunts drop keys to their warehouses and HQs when they are defeated and/or they run away.
They generally use a combination of Glameow, Stunky, Croagunk, Zubat, Houndour, Murkrow, and the Wurmple line.
In the anime
Galactic Grunts have made multiple appearances in the anime, with the first appearance being in A Secret Sphere of Influence!. They also appeared in Enter Galactic!, Losing Its Lustrous and Double Team Turnover!, Steeling Peace of Mind! and DP111.
In the Pokémon DP manga
In Pokémon DP Adventure one unnamed Galactic Grunt is given a recurring role in the manga. He is distinguishable from other grunts due to his swollen buttocks after being bitten by Hareta.
- The Galactic Grunt battle music has a funk and jazz element in it, while there is a funk and jazz group called the Galactic.
