Quotes

Galactic Eterna Building
  • Before battle
"Eh? Did you want something? How silly of me to even ask. You want to free the Pokémon. Yeah, that's gonna happen!"
  • During battle (the first non-KO hit)
"How insolent. Take a bite of this, child!"
  • When defeated
"Losing to some child... Being careless cost me too much."
  • After being defeated
"Well, aren't you tough...? It's OK, though. Our official Pokémon-statue investigation is finished. Mars has collected energy from the Valley Windworks. We're pretty much finished here. I'll let you in on one little thing. Our boss is researching the myths of ancient Pokémon. With the power of mythical Pokémon, he will become the ruler of Sinnoh... I suggest you keep out of Team Galactic's affairs from now on. This is your last warning!"
Lake Acuity
"Oh? Are you finished already? You're Pokémon aren't bad, but you're laughably weak. You honestly thought you could save the Pokémon of the lake? And become the Pokémon Champion? Dream on, little kid. But, eww, it's so cold here. Let's go back to the Veilstone HQ."
"Oh? Don't I know? We met in Eterna City. Listen. Team Galactic is going to do something huge for everyone's sake. That's why you should keep out of Team Galactic's way. Don't come whining about poor Pokémon and other trivial junk like that. Don't waste your time coming to our HQ in Veilstone. Now if you'll excuse me."
Spear Pillar
  • If talked to
"What's the matter? Don't tell me you're shaking?"
  • Before battle
"And I'll be next. You might be tough, but this time, the gloves are coming off!"
"Humph! Well, if it isn't the little boy who ran off crying at Lake Acuity! Did you get any tougher since then? We'll beat you two-on-two!"
  • When defeated
"Humph! You've toughened up. But you're no match for our boss."

In Pokémon Platinum

In Pokémon Platinum she and Mars quit Team Galactic because Charon has different ideals than former boss Cyrus. It is also shown that Mars and Jupiter have a mutual dislike of each other.

  • When defeated
"Humph! Quit flaunting your toughness! It's not cute in the least!"
"...How dare you!"
"Following Mars's lead at anything irks me, but... I'm quitting to do my own thing, too. Team Galactic's just no fun without Master Cyrus around. So, old-timer, go ahead. Do what you want with Team Galactic."
"...Says you. An "ordinary girl" you're not. What should I do now? Is leaving on a journey the right idea?"

In the anime

Jupiter in the anime

Jupiter made her debut appearance in Double Team Turnover! where she was the one to get the Lustrous Orb back from Team Rocket after they stole it from the Celestic Town Historical Research Center.

She was later assigned by Cyrus to lead the capture squad for the Lake guardians, along with some assistance from Pokémon hunters.

She also had a cameo appearance in Saving the World From Ruins!.

Jupiter's first major appearance came in Unlocking the Red Chain of Events!, where she was protecting Charon at the Fuego Ironworks while he was working on the Red Chain. She successfully captured Looker, Jessie and James and later encountered Ash and his friends for the first time. During their encounter, she noted her disgust that Mesprit, Azelf and Uxie had chosen Dawn, Ash and Brock as their protectors rather than herself, Saturn and Mars. With the help from her Skuntank, Jupiter and Charon were able to make a clean getaway.

Jupiter was present when Team Galactic's plans came to a head in The Needs of the Three! where she battled the gang again. In The Battle Finale of Legend! she was asked to guard the outside of the Spear Pillar however she was quickly captured by Cynthia and was later arrested, along with Mars and Saturn.

She appeared briefly in Memories are Made of Bliss! in Team Rocket's fantasy with all the other members of Team Galactic.

Pokémon

This listing is of Jupiter's known Pokémon in the anime:

Jupiter's Skuntank
Skuntank
Skuntank is Jupiter's main Pokémon, appearing alongside her in Double Team Turnover!. Skuntank appears to be very loyal, remaining by Jupiter's side throughout the operation to retrieve the Lustrous Orb however it clearly also likes to sleep as it was resting while Jupiter used the Spear Key to track the orb down.

Skuntank later proved instrumental in retrieving the Lustrous Orb for Team Galactic when it saved it from being destroyed when it was thrown through the air in the midst of a battle with Team Rocket, whom Skuntank then sent blasting off.

Skuntank's next appearance was in Unlocking the Red Chain of Events! where it battled Pikachu and Piplup. It also appeared in The Needs of the Three! and The Battle Finale of Legend! to help fulfill Team Galactic's plans, but was eventually knocked out by Cynthia's Garchomp's Giga Impact.

Skuntank's known moves are Slash, Toxic, Flamethrower, Iron Tail and Hyper Beam.

Debut Double Team Turnover!

Jupiter also has at least one more Pokémon, as seen in The Battle Finale of Legend!: when Cynthia appeared, she was seen pulling out a Poké Ball, but she didn't get a chance to release to Pokémon inside before Garchomp got her cornered.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Jupiter and Charon in Pokémon Adventures
Jupiter first appears in Lake Acuity, where she attacks Platinum, Candice and Maylene, promptly defeating and overpowering them despite their best efforts. She then succeeds in capturing Uxie and delivering it to the Team Galactic HQ and joins up with Mars and Saturn, where the three are greeted by an elated Cyrus.

In the final battle at the Spear Pillar, she is defeated and knocked unconscious by Candice and Maylene, who are happy to have avenged their previous loss. Later, Jupiter and her teammates are discovered by another member of Team Galactic, Sird. Jupiter introduces Sird to the others, who in turn explains to them that she had infiltrated Team Rocket on a mission, but failed. Soon after, they are attacked by Riley of Iron Island, who had tracked Sird by her Aura. Sird battles Riley, allowing Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars to escape unharmed.

Later, Jupiter and the other Commanders witness Charon battling Diamond and Pearl at Eterna City with Heatran and Giratina. While the others are irritated that Charon has revealed his true loyalties, Jupiter completely ignores it so that they can enter the Distortion World and rescue Cyrus. After arriving, they find Charon there as well. He lies and tells them that he is searching for Cyrus too, but is being attacked by a group of people and asks for their help.

Believing his lie, Jupiter quickly rushes into battle and they each face a different opponent in a one-on-one battle. Jupiter faces Marley in battle, while Saturn faces Mira, and Mars faces Cheryl. Jupiter proves to be a powerful opponent for Marley, but with information from Platinum, Marley manages to figure out her opponent's Natural Gift tactic.

The battle is interrupted by Giratina, who flies past them so that it can fight the other legendary Pokémon in the area. After Charon is defeated, Jupiter, her fellow Commanders, and Cyrus emerge from the Distortion World and into the real world. Charon tries to lie to Cyrus by claiming that he intended to gather the legendary Pokémon for Team Galactic's sake.

Cyrus speaks to his four Commanders once more and reveals that he is disbanding Team Galactic and prepares to leave. Jupiter, in an outburst of anger, yells at Cyrus for abandoning them because she, Mars, and Saturn will have nowhere else to go without him. Hearing her wishes, Cyrus takes Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars away with him and thanks Diamond, Pearl, Platinum for their help.

Trivia

  • Jupiter’s name was changed to Ceres in Spanish-language versions of the game, likely due to the fact that Jupiter is the name of a male Roman god. This also happened to Mars.
    • Because of this, she shares with Charon the somewhat dubious honor of being named for a dwarf planet (as his Spanish name is Plutón). Perhaps ironically, Jupiter is the largest of the eight planets, while Ceres is the smallest of the currently accepted five dwarf planets.
  • Jupiter is the only person in the anime to have their name changed in the Israeli dub, due to the fact that Jupiter in Hebrew is called Yupiter.
  • Jupiter's Skuntank is underleveled during her first battle; it is at level 23, yet Stunky does not evolve until level 34.
