Team Aqua Agent
Team Aqua Grunts in the anime

Team Aqua Grunts have made subsequent appearances in the anime, normally using their Pokémon to infiltrate a target or to help Shelly out. One grunt is voiced by Darren Dunstan in English.

The first Aqua Grunt is introduced in Stairway to Devon where he infiltrated the Devon Corporation by disguising himself as a scientist and stole two capsules of "Creation Fluid". His plans were stopped by Team Rocket's Jessie and James, who intended to steal the same thing, all parties involved not realizing that "Creation Fluid" was nothing more than water. The same grunt appears again in the next episode where he uses his Crawdaunt to capture Mr. Briney's Peeko. Later Team Rocket appear and try to take Peeko from him but is sent blasting off by Crawdaunt. He tries to escape with Peeko, but in the end is stopped and he has to escape.

They appear again in Fight for the Meteorite! where they surrounded Professor Cozmo for a meteorite. They battle Team Magma and lose but Team Magma's plans are ruined by Ash and his friends. In A Three Team Scheme! three grunts appeared with Shelly to collect information on Team Magma. In Unfair-Weather Friends they infiltrated the Weather Institute, but their plans fail and they escape. Their last appearances in Gaining Groudon! and The Scuffle of Legends! is where they have awakened Groudon which causes mass destruction, but in the end Team Aqua are defeated.
