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.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Card GB The Comix manga

Ronald appears as the main character in Pokémon Card GB The Comix, a one-shot manga based on the video game of the same name. In Pokémon Card GB The Comix, Ronald duels his rival Mark, but ultimately loses.

Pokémon

Ronald uses the following Pokémon cards in his duel against Mark:

Ronald's Dewgong
Dewgong
Dewgong is a Water-type card used by Ronald in his deck. Ronald began the duel with Seel as his Active Pokémon. On his second turn, Ronald Evolved Seel into Dewgong. As Dewgong, it Knocked Out Mark's Scyther using a combination of its Aurora Beam attack and PlusPower. Eventually, Dewgong was Knocked Out by Mark's Ivysaur.
Debut Pokémon Card GB The Comix
Ronald's Magmar
Magmar
Magmar is a Fire-type card used by Ronald in his deck. Magmar was placed on the Bench on Ronald's fourth turn, and became the Active Pokémon on his fifth turn after Dewgong was Knocked Out. Magmar had the advantage over Mark's Ivysaur (and then Venusaur after it Evolved) due to the type advantage of Fire over Grass. However, it was Knocked Out by Mark's Charizard after it was swapped out from Venusaur.
Debut Pokémon Card GB The Comix
Ronald's Hitmonchan
Hitmonchan
Hitmonchan is a Fighting-type card used by Ronald in his deck. On his fourth turn, Ronald placed Hitmonchan on the Bench at the same time as Magmar, but it never became the Active Pokémon.
