Galactic grunts

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.
