Team Rocket HQ
Region Kanto
Debut Showdown at the Po-ké Corral

Team Rocket HQ is the center of Team Rocket's operations. It is located in Kanto, and is where Giovanni and his secretary reside.

Originally, it was located in an area populated with trees, and was where Mewtwo was kept. However, in Showdown at the Po-ké Corral, Mewtwo escaped to New Island, destroying the building. It made a brief appearance in the intro of Mewtwo Strikes Back, where Mewtwo's escape was recalled.

The HQ was then rebuilt in the middle of a rocky terrain and is hard to locate. In The Scheme Team, Jessie, James and Meowth are assigned there. It also appeared in The Thief That Keeps on Thieving!, when Jessie sent the Yanma she caught to Giovanni as a gift, only for him to send it back due to having recently received a large supply of them.

The HQ appeared in In The Shadow of Zekrom!, where Jessie, James and Meowth were assigned their mission in Unova. The building was shown with a new look. In Enter Iris and Axew!, it was revealed that Jessie and James had left their Pokémon behind at the headquarters. It also appeared in The Dream Continues!, where Jessie and James gave Giovanni their Unova Pokémon and rejoined with Jessie's Wobbuffet.
