Pokémon Hunter J
|Anime debut||Mutiny in the Bounty|
|English voice actor||Sonny Dey|
|Japanese voice actor||Takako Honda|
J (Japanese: J) is a Pokémon Hunter who, with the help from her henchmen, steals Trainers' Pokémon and sells the Pokémon requested by her clients for a profit. She first appeared in Mutiny in the Bounty.
She is a person who is willing to do anything to capture Pokémon for her clients even if it means injuring people or Pokémon, easily revealing her to be ruthless, relentless, and cruel. In fact, in her debut episode, she sacrificed some of her henchmen to Officer Jenny without hesitation or remorse.
In Mutiny in the Bounty, she first stole Melodi's Gardevoir. Thinking Ash's Pikachu and Team Rocket's Meowth would be worth a lot, she stole them, too, thus forcing Ash to join forces with Jessie and James to rescue them. Following a brief confrontation with J, they managed to sneak into J's airborne base and rescue their Pokémon and all others she had stolen, before returning them to their rightful trainers. Though several of her henchmen have been captured by Officer Jenny, J remains still at large. Jessie, James and Meowth especially seem to harbor a grudge against her ever since she kidnapped Meowth.
J appeared again in Ill-Will Hunting!. This time, she was on a mission to steal a group of Shieldon, but was foiled by Ash and his friends, with help from Gary Oak. Her employer cut off the deal to obtain the Shieldon since Officer Jenny was near. After telling Ash and Co. not to get in her way next time, she tells her second in command to establish radio contact with their employer that they will not be doing any service with him again.

Inside J's airship
- J has a bracelet that is able to turn Pokémon into stone.
- She also has cases for those Pokémon turned to stone which can adjust how much the body is covered with stone.
- Her goggles also have many abilities, like predicting where a Pokémon using Teleport will appear, detecting camouflaged or transformed Pokémon.
- She also has six-wheeled vans driven by her henchmen that can shoot out nets and have retractable arms.
- She also travels through the Pokémon world in an airship, which also serves as her hideout. This ship is capable of cloaking itself to render it invisible.
- Unlike most villains in the anime, J actually seems as if she is trying to kill Ash, not merely get rid of him. This was shown in Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part Two when she commanded her Salamence to use Hyper Beam directly on him, having her Drapion squeeze him tight with its claws, and ejecting him from her ship at a great height.
