Jupiter (Japanese: ジュピター Jupiter) is one of Team Galactic's four Commanders in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Versions.

In the games

She is first seen at the uppermost floor of the Galactic Eterna Building in Eterna City. She is also briefly seen at Lake Acuity, where she defeats the player's rival somewhat easily. She is later battled at Spear Pillar in a double battle with Mars against the player and his or her rival. In Pokémon Platinum she and Mars quit Team Galactic because Charon has different ideals than former boss Cyrus. It is also shown that Mars and Jupiter have a mutual dislike of each other.

Eterna Galactic Building
  • Before battle:
“Eh? Did you want something? How silly of me to even ask. You want to free the Pokémon. Yeah, that’s gonna happen!”
  • In battle, after damaging her Pokémon:
“How insolent. Take a bite of this, child!”
  • When defeated:
“Losing to some child... Being careless cost me too much.”
  • After battle:
“Well, aren’t you tough...? It’s OK, though. Our official Pokémon-statue investigation is finished. Mars has collected energy from the Valley Windworks. We’re pretty much finished here. I’ll let you in on one little thing. Our boss is researching the myths of ancient Pokémon. With the power of mythical Pokémon, he will become the ruler of Sinnoh... I suggest you keep out of Team Galactic’s affairs from now on. This is your last warning!”


Spear Pillar
  • Before battle:
“And I’ll be next. You might be tough, but this time, the gloves are coming off!”
“Ha! If it isn’t that little boy. The little crybaby from Lake Acuity. Did you toughen up a bit? Sure, let’s battle two-on-two!”
  • When defeated:
“Humph! You’ve toughened up. But you’re no match for our boss.”
  • After battle:
“That shadow... What was it...?!”
Stark Mountain
  • Before battle:
“...Mars. You really are weak. Pitifully so. You make me embarrassed to be a Commander like you.”
“Fine. I’ll go up next. I want to know what became of Master Cyrus, too.”
  • When defeated:
“Humph! Quit flaunting your toughness! It’s not cute in the least!”
  • After battle:
“...How dare you!”
“Following Mars’s lead at anything irks me, but... I’m quitting to do my own thing, too. Team Galactic’s just no fun without Master Cyrus around. So, old-timer, go ahead. Do what you want with Team Galactic.”
“...Says you. An “ordinary girl” you’re not. What should I do now? Is leaving on a journey the right idea?”

In the anime

Jupiter made her debut appearance in Double Team Turnover! where she was the one to get the Lustrous Orb back from Team Rocket after they stole it from the Celestic Town Historical Research Center.

She was later assigned by Cyrus to lead the capture squad for the Lake guardians, along with some assistance from Pokémon hunters.

She also had a cameo appearance in Saving the World From Ruins!.

Jupiter's first major appearance came in Unlocking the Red Chain of Events!, where she was protecting Charon at the Fuego Ironworks while he was working on the Red Chain. She successfully captured Looker, Jessie and James and later encountered Ash and his friends for the first time. During their encounter, she noted her disgust that Mesprit, Azelf and Uxie had chosen Dawn, Ash and Brock as their protectors rather than herself, Saturn and Mars. With the help from her Skuntank, Jupiter and Charon were able to make a clean getaway.

Jupiter was present when Team Galactic's plans came to a head in The Needs of the Three! where she battled the gang again. In The Battle Finale of Legend! she was asked to guard the outside of Spear Pillar however she was quickly captured by Cynthia and was later arrested, along with Mars and Saturn.

She appeared briefly in DP191 in Team Rocket's fantasy with all the other members of Team Galactic.


This listing is of Jupiter's known Pokémon in the anime:

Jupiter's Skuntank
Skuntank is Jupiter's main Pokémon, appearing alongside her in Double Team Turnover!. Skuntank appears to be very loyal, remaining by Jupiter's side throughout the operation to retrieve the Lustrous Orb however it clearly also likes to sleep as it was resting while Jupiter used the Spear Key to track the Orb down.

Skuntank later proved instrumental in retrieving the Lustrous Orb for Team Galactic when it saved it from being destroyed when it was thrown through the air in the midst of a battle with Team Rocket, whom Skuntank then sent blasting off.

Skuntank's next appearance was in Unlocking the Red Chain of Events! where it battled Pikachu and Piplup. It also appeared in The Needs of the Three! and The Battle Finale of Legend! to help fulfill Team Galactic's plans, but was eventually knocked out by Cynthia's Garchomp.

Skuntank's known moves are Slash, Toxic, Flamethrower, Iron Tail and Hyper Beam.

Pokémon Adventures

Jupiter and Charon in Pokémon Adventures
Jupiter first appears in Lake Acuity, where she attacks Platinum, Candice and Maylene, promptly defeating and overpowering them despite their best efforts. She then succeeds in capturing Uxie and delivering it to the Team Galactic HQ and joins up with Mars and Saturn, where the three are greeted by an elated Cyrus.


Jupiter's Sableye
Sableye was first seen sneaking up on Candice, Maylene, and Platinum shortly after they arrived in Lake Acuity. After being spotted by Maylene, it attacks them alongside Gastrodon. Sableye is able to use its shadow to attack and when combined with Tangrowth's Flash, it is a very powerful foe (due to the light extending the reach of its shadows). Its known moves are Shadow Sneak and Punishment.
Debut VS Sableye
Jupiter's Gastrodon
Gastrodon was first seen attacking Candice by grabbing her arm with its mouth and trapping her in a pile of mud and then attacking Maylene's Riolu. Its known moves are Mud Bomb, Mud Shot, and Stone Edge.
Debut VS Sableye
Jupiter's Tangrowth
Tangrowth was used against Candice,and Maylene where it used its vines and Flash to make a deadly combination with Sableye's Shadow Sneak. Its known moves are Flash and Natural Gift. Using a variety of held berries, the latter move boasts a very flexible array of opponents it can overpower.
Debut VS Gastrodon

Pokémon DP

Just like in the games, Jupiter was assigned to Lake Acuity to capture Uxie. Her Skuntank was defeated by Mitsumi while Jun looked on, however, upon orders from Cyrus, Jupiter used her Tangrowth to capture Jun and blackmail Mitsumi into returning to Galactic's headquarters with her.




  • Jupiter’s name was changed to Ceres in Spanish-language versions of the game, likely due to the fact that Jupiter is the name of a male Roman god. This also happened to Mars.
    • Because of this, she shares with Charon the somewhat dubious honor of being named for a dwarf planet (as his Spanish name is Plutón). Perhaps ironically, Jupiter is the largest of the eight planets, while Ceres is the smallest of the currently accepted five dwarf planets.
  • Jupiter's Japanese voice actress, Chinami Nishimura, also voices Officer Jenny, a police officer. Coincidentally, both names start with a J, in both Japanese (romanized) and English versions. Both also appeared in Double Team Turnover!.
  • Jupiter's Skuntank is underleveled in the first battle; Stunky does not evolve until level 34.
  • Jupiter is the only person in the anime to have their name changed in the Israeli dub, due to the fact that Jupiter in Hebrew is called Yupiter.
