Delibird (Japanese: デリバード Delibird) is a Pokémon owned by Team Rocket that followed around Jessie, James and Meowth during the latter part of the Johto season. It is known to use Present on Ash and his friends repeatedly.


Team Rocket is happy to see Delibird

Original series

Delibird first appeared in Dues and Don'ts under the ownership of a Rocket Scout. She claimed that she and the Delibird were trying to recruit new members for Team Rocket. When Jessie and James told her that they were Team Rocket members, she said that they weren't in the system. James pulled out his membership card, and the scout informed them that because they hadn't paid any of their dues, they had been kicked out of Team Rocket. The scout then told them that if they defeated a Trainer, they would be allowed back in. Using Delibird, Team Rocket battled Ash, and despite the fact that he won, the scout allowed them to rejoin. But she also told them that her Delibird would be following them around to collect their dues that they had still not paid.

It reappeared in Xatu the Future, right before a flood was about to take place. Team Rocket told Delibird that they would pay it back with all of the items from the town that was about to be flooded. After the flood, all the items were buried under several feet of dirt, and Team Rocket attempted to dig it out. Delibird flew away, promising to come back.

Delibird was seen looking for Team Rocket around the Slowpoke Temple at the end of Enlighten Up!. Hiding from it meant that they had to take their punishment for trying to steal the temple's statue.

It also appeared at the end of Can't Beat the Heat!, where it took all of the money Team Rocket had earned during the Silver Conference. This apparently completed their dues as Delibird did not go looking for Team Rocket in Hoenn.

Advanced Generation series

Delibird meeting with Team Rocket

Delibird made a reappearance in Grating Spaces!. It gave Jessie and James a Charizard and an Aggron but took them back later as they had been meant for Butch and Cassidy.

Diamond & Pearl series

In The Thief That Keeps on Thieving!, Delibird delivered a Yanma to Giovanni from Jessie. Giovanni did not need Yanma, however, and so had Delibird return it.

Delibird returned in Memories are Made of Bliss! to deliver a message to the trio, telling them of their new mission in Unova. In this episode, it was sent to them by Matori.

Best Wishes series

Delibird's most recent appearance was in the ending Let's Join Hands, where it was shown delivering Team Rocket plans for a new Basculin-based submarine which were sent by Dr. Zager.
