Team Great Rocket (Japanese: グレートロケット団 Great Rocket-dan, literally Great Rocket Gang), abbreviated Team GR, are the villainous group of the Trading Card Game Islands, who attempt to steal the Legendary Cards of the Grand Masters in Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!. Led by King Biruritchi, they take over TCG Island and kidnap several of the Club Masters. Another one of their members is Ronald, the Rival from the original Pokémon Trading Card Game.

Team Great Rocket executives wear long, hooded capes with masks. The masks cover the entire face and feature the symbol of any one of the then-current seven TCG types.
