(Japanese: マトリ Matori), or Giovanni's secretary (Japanese: サカキの秘書 Sakaki's secretary) in the English dub, is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime, making her debut appearance in Memories are Made of Bliss!.

Character

Matori appears to take her job as secretary seriously, as shown many times when she delivered the messages coming from the Team Rocket boss to the trio. She is also seen to be faithful and deferential to Giovanni.

History

Giovanni and Matori in the Best Wishes series

In Memories are Made of Bliss!, Delibird arrived in Sinnoh to inform Jessie, James, and Meowth to contact Team Rocket headquarters immediately. When they did, instead of reaching Giovanni as they expected to, Matori greeted them. She informed the trio that they had to return to headquarters right away for an assignment from their Boss himself. Later, Matori delivered the files on Jessie, James and Meowth to Giovanni for review before being dismissed.

In the Best Wishes series, Matori appeared several times, most often alongside Giovanni, performing important tasks such as informing the trio that they could not use their old Pokémon in Unova and updating Giovanni on the movements of a secret organization as well as things as simple as making coffee.

In Battling For The Love of Bug-Types!, after the events in Castelia City, which are now retconned out of canon, she dismisses Jessie, James and Meowth to act on their own in Unova, telling them that Giovanni is very busy and cannot give them any more missions at the present time.

After a long absence, Matori made two brief, non-speaking cameo appearances alongside Giovanni, first in Unrest at the Nursery!, and then in BW142 dressed in new clothing. She is also set to appear in XY002.
