As the player character's rival, he fights the player from time to time during the normal course of the gameplay. He plays four different decks as the player progresses through the game.

I'm Ronald Deck

After the player obtains the second Master Medal, he will battle the player with this deck.

Powerful Ronald Deck

After the player obtains the fifth Master Medal, he will battle the player with this deck.


Invincible Ronald Deck

During both Challenge Cup matches, which take place between the player's third and fourth Master Medal, as well as between sixth and seventh, he will fight the player with this deck.


Legendary Ronald Deck

After the player defeats the four Grand Masters for the first time at the Pokémon Dome, Ronald will come to battle with this deck using the Legendary Cards he just inherited. After he has been defeated, he will lose the powers of the Legendary cards and can never be battled again at Pokémon Dome. Ronald will re-appear occasionally at the Challenge Cup using the Invincible Ronald Deck.

In Pokémon Card GB2

Duelling against Ronald alias GR-X

Ronald appears several times during the game. In the beginning of the game, when the player enters a club building for the first time, Ronald talks about Team Great Rocket, and uses the Card Pop! function with the player. He also appears after defeating Miwa at Psychic Club, and if defeated, he gives the player a rare Super Energy Retrieval card.

Ronald is met again on the GR Island when entering Game Center for first time, as Ronald appears and gives away the Bill's PC card. Shortly after that, he may be seen again at the GR Grass Fort, now belonging to Team Great Rocket as member GR-X. He then challenges the player to a 6-prize match, in which he uses a deck focusing on Grass Pokémon. When defeated, he reveals his identity and mission to recover the cards stolen by Team Great Rocket and gives one of both Team Rocket's Ambition and We Are Team Rocket booster packs.

When the player has defeated the Fort Leader at the GR Fire Fort, Ronald appears once again. If the player defeats him in a 6-prize duel, Ronald awards him with a Computer Error card.
