Sham (Japanese: シャム Siam), known as Chermaine in the Chuang Yi's English translation of the manga, along with Karen, Will, Green, Silver, and Carl, is one of the children kidnapped by the Masked Man and raised to be his servants. Sham was one of the sub-leaders of the new Team Rocket formed in Johto.

History

Sham wearing her mask

Sham, along with Carl, debut in Piloswine Whine where they attack an arguing Gold and Silver. After Carl's Piloswine and he attempts to call for backup, Sham tells them that they no longer need to be there; they then make their retreat.

Sham and Carl are later seen torturing the Team Rocket Elite Trio for their recent defeat at the hands of Eusine and losing the Pokémon they were tracking, Suicune. They are soon joined by the new leader of Team Rocket, the Masked Man, who decides it is time to start his master plan at Indigo Plateau.

Later, at the Indigo Plateau, Sham and Carl are seen having taken control of the Pokémon League's control room. They are approached by Gold and Crystal who have come to try to stop them. Sham and Carl use their Pokémon to paralyze them, but with quick thinking, Gold manages to put their Pokémon to sleep. Despite their Pokémon being asleep, Sham and Carl are still able to fight. Eventually, their Pokémon are defeated with a Giga Drain combination attack that sends their Slowking and Magcargo flying towards them. While Carl is knocked out cold, Sham manages to stay awake long enough to reveal that they were only decoys.

Pokémon

Later on, it was used by Sham to bide time against Gold and Crystal while the rest of Team Rocket came towards the Indigo Plateau. It was defeated after being struck by a Giga Drain while asleep.

Slowking's only known move is Snore.

Trivia

  • Due to the lack of Rocket Executive designs, she is based on the female Executive. However, this means she looks like Ariana, who is also based on the female Executive.
  • She has two proper English names - Sham from VIZ Media's American English translation and Chermaine from Chuang Yi's Singaporean English translation. However, Coronis, who is known of coining fan names for manga characters who lack American names coined the name Shum based on her Japanese name long before the American release of her debut volume.
