Grey (Japanese: グレイ Grey) is a Rocket Executive in the Golden Boys manga. Since Team Rocket no longer has a distinct Boss after Giovanni's departure, he seems to have taken the role of a highest member in the team.

History

He is first seen in Gold and Black VS Team Rocket at the Pokémon Summit in Ecruteak City, when Team Rocket tries to spoil the summit using radiomagnetic waves to confuse Trainers and their Pokémon in order to steal rare Pokémon gathered in that place. Gold and Black try to stop him using Espeon and Umbreon borrowed from Bill against his Houndour, but the Legendary Beasts spoiled this fight and managed to ruin Team Rocket's deeds. Some grunts got arrested, but Grey seemingly managed to escape.

Later, he appears near the Whirl Islands, where Team Rocket does a money-making scheme by shipping people through the ocean for large sums of money (all other ships do not ship there anymore because of dangerous whirlpools), while Gold and Chris are sailing on the raft. Grey remembers Gold and orders to crush them by crashing the raft with his large ship. He succeeded in destroying it, but the heroes managed to escape by hiding in fog.

Houndour
Houndour is Grey's only known Pokémon. It was used to guard access to the machines by using Flamethrower so Espeon and Umbreon wouldn't destroy them.

Trivia

  • Grey is based on the male Rocket Executive from Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, retroactively identified as Archer in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. The executive is inferred to be the highest member, like Grey, having the power to disband Team Rocket after being defeated.
  • Currently, Grey is the only character named after a color which does not share a name with a core series Pokémon game. He previously shared this distinction with Black, however, since the release of the manga, a Generation V game named Pokémon Black was released.
