Jimmy (Japanese: ジミー Jimmy) is a character of the day who appeared in Judgment Day!. He is a Trainer from Kanto training to become a Referee.

Jimmy was a poor Trainer, and often felt he had bad luck, even though he actually had all the opposite. Jimmy has only one Badge, the Cascade Badge: but he didn't have to battle for it. Jimmy earned the Badge by simply helping Daisy clean the Gym. He also came across a Shiny Magikarp without much trouble at all, although he didn't realize how rare the Shiny Pokémon was, and was ready to trade it away without hesitation.

While Jimmy and his Pokémon were sleeping in a small fishing boat, the rope that was tying the boat to the dock became undone and the boat floated away into the ocean. Quite by accident, they found themselves on an island where Trainers were learning about refereeing.

As a referee, Jimmy is shown to be quite indecisive. After defeating Team Rocket who had attempted to steal his Pokémon, he decides to revert to his original goal of becoming a Trainer, and return to Lilycove City.
