Giovanni (Japanese: サカキ Sakaki) is the former head of Team Rocket, who served as the secretive Gym Leader of Viridian City's Gym, known officially as the Viridian Gym. He handed out the Earth Badge to Trainers who defeated him. As a Gym Leader, he specialized in Ground-type Pokémon, but his master plan includes collecting rare Pokémon of all types. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, he makes a return appearance as the leader of Team Rainbow Rocket. He is the only character in the games to have the Trainer classes BossFRLG/Rocket BossHGSS/Team Rocket BossPE (Japanese: ロケットだんボス Team Rocket Boss) and Team Rainbow Rocket (Japanese: Rロケットだん Team R Rocket).

In the core series

Giovanni is the primary antagonist of the games taking place in Kanto.

In the first games Giovanni appeared in, he served a dual role: one that was well known to the residents of Kanto, and one that was more secret. He was first shown as the leader of the villainous Team Rocket, the first of many criminal organizations to grace the Pokémon games. After the player defeated him and his team of Grunts at Silph Co., Giovanni fled to a hideout that the player is unaware of. Once the player returned to Viridian City, one of the major plot twists of these games revealed that Giovanni, in addition to his role as a criminal, was the final Gym Leader to be fought before the Elite Four—albeit one without a formal title. Here, he specializes in the Ground type. Once defeated, he disbanded Team Rocket and left the player with the Earth Badge and TM27 (Fissure). If talked to again, he then vanishes and is not seen again for the rest of the game.

Giovanni's role in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen is much the same; the one difference is that defeating him in the Gym battle will earn the player TM26 (Earthquake), instead of TM27 (Fissure). He also implies that he intends to return to power one day rather than being moved to dedicate his life to the study of Pokémon. There is a side-plot in the Sevii Islands that revolves around Giovanni; a group of Team Rocket members are trying to continue the aims of Team Rocket, but they abandon this when they realize that their leader has been defeated once and for all.

In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Giovanni's story is slightly expended from his first appearance. During his first appearance, he is seen talking with Archer and giving him the permission to proceed with the plan to take over Silph Co. After being defeated for the first time, he gives the player the Silph Scope as a token of apology for mocking them, as opposed to just leaving the device behind before leaving, like in previous games. At the Silph Co., a part of his conversation with the Silph Co. President is shown, with Giovanni demanding him to hand over the Master Ball like they had previously agreed. In the Gym battle, Giovanni's reward TM once again contains Earthquake, although now, it's TM41, instead of TM26.

In Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, a group of Team Rocket members tries to relaunch the old team. They take over Goldenrod Radio Tower, and broadcast a radio announcement intended for Giovanni. Only in HeartGold and SoulSilver is it revealed that Giovanni does hear the broadcast, from his hideout in Tohjo Falls - an event in the remakes involving a time-traveling Celebi allows Ethan and Lyra to travel back in time and defeat Giovanni at the same time the rest of Team Rocket is being defeated. Upon defeat he will begin ranting about how he keeps losing to children and, like before, Giovanni will leave the room and disappear. Later, in Kanto, it is revealed that Blue took over the Viridian Gym after his disappearance.

The Celebi event also reveals some of Giovanni's background from the three years between Generation I/III and Generation II/IV. While it was mentioned in FireRed and LeafGreen that Giovanni has a son with red hair, the son's identity wasn't revealed until the time-travel event in HeartGold and SoulSilver. As many fans speculated (and as was mentioned in the Pokémon Adventures manga series), this son is the rival of the Johto player character, Silver. Much of Silver's personality is a result of the treatment he received from Giovanni, which includes abandonment. Like many of Giovanni's other actions throughout the games, this reflects on his selfishness.

Giovanni reappears in Black 2 and White 2 in the Pokémon World Tournament, replacing Blue, who instead participates in the Champions Tournament. Giovanni returns to using Ground types exclusively. While the announcer usually introduces Gym Leaders by their title, Giovanni, who does not have a title, is introduced as "The Self-Proclaimed Strongest Trainer" (Japanese: さいきょうの トレーナーと なのる Self-Proclaimed Strongest Trainer).

Giovanni appears again in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon as the Boss of the new Team Rainbow Rocket, featured in Episode RR. He is first seen during the Aether Foundation's broadcast from Aether Paradise, where he seizes control of the organization from Lusamine. He fortifies himself inside Team Rocket's Castle and stations versions of Archie, Maxie, Cyrus, Lysandre, and Ghetsis from other worlds as his guards, along with an army of Team Rainbow Rocket Grunts. After battling through his army, the player and Lillie find Giovanni holding an unconscious Lusamine inside his control center deep within the castle. He introduces himself and reveals that he plans to create an army of Ultra Beasts in order to conquer all worlds. For that purpose, he needs the Aether Foundation's resources, and intends to brainwash Lusamine into serving him. Feeling nostalgic that a child would challenge him, Giovanni battles the player with a party that includes Mewtwo, and is ultimately defeated. Accepting his loss, Giovanni abandons his plans for the Aether Foundation but swears that Team Rainbow Rocket will never fall. He leaves as Colress begins working to revert Team Rocket's Castle back into Lusamine's mansion, and is last seen reflecting on what he will do next before being warped away.

A battle program based on Giovanni appears as a boss in the Battle Agency within Festival Plaza.

"I commend you for standing up to me, Trainer. I trust you’ll make this worth my time."
"You are foolish to confront me, but I’m impressed by your confidence. Let’s battle."
"My goal is beyond your comprehension."
"If you insist on confronting me, you will pay the price!"
"What’s this now? I hope you are a worthy opponent."
Before battle
"Prepare yourself for a world of pain."
"Humble yourself. You are facing the world’s greatest Trainer."
"If you insist on disrupting my plans, I will insist on making you regret it."
"You have no idea who you are challenging, child."
"You underestimate Team GO Rocket. Prepare for battle."
"There is no stopping my plans."
"Two things are inevitable: my success and your failure."
"You have proven yourself by reaching me, so I shall spare you a moment of my time."
"You may have made it here, but this is as far as you’ll go."
"I’d say to prepare for battle, but you have already lost."

"Hm? Disbanded..."
"So this is how it's gonna be, huh? I guess I'm doomed to be a criminal no matter which world I find myself in."
"Never mind that. Funnily ennough, you and your comrades showed up at the perfect time."
"You all have sync stones, don't you—those little crystals embedded in your Poryphones?"
"I happen to be in possession of one as well... These mysterious stones can only be found in certain areas around Pasio."
"They have... piqued my interest, to say the least. Sync stones are an immense source of power, driven by the bond between Trainer and Pokémon."
"If I can learn to bend that power to my will, I'll be stronger than ever before."
"And that's not all... If I discover how to unleash the hidden power within them, I can truly rule the world."
"Heh, don't put too much thought into it. You kids wouldn't know how to use it that way anyway."
"Well? Are you here to detain me, or would you prefer to stand around and chat? Personally, I'd rather battle."
"I wonder what will happen if I use the sync stone I mined from this cave with Mewtwo..."
"Huh. Most people cower in fear when they come face-to-face with Mewtwo... Maybe I underestimated you."
"Or maybe not... Why don't you show me what you can do? I could use a laugh."
  • Unfathomable Strength
"Hmph... That was a truly intense fight."
"It really is possible for the bond of a sync pair to manifest great strength and power."

"Why don't we try again? Prepare yourselves for our next battle, and follow me if you dare!"

"And if you agree to work with me... I'd like to continue to witness that power."
"I don't blame you for being skeptical. I've always been up to no good—why should you trust me?"
"The thing is, I've been thinking about changing my ways... starting fresh here in this new part of the world called Pasio."
"I could forget about the lying and plotting and just enjoy competing in the PML with Mewtwo, fair and square... Hmph. Not a bad idea."
"I guess it's up to you kids, though. What's your decision?"
If it'll keep him from stirring up trouble...: "Heh, keep your friends close and your enemies closer, eh? Touché."
"Fine with me, as long as it means I get front-row seats to witness what becomes of you kids here on Pasio."
If he promises to stop his evil schemes...: "Listen, kid... I'm not a psychic. I can't make any promises about the future."
"But you know what they say, right? Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. You want to keep me in line? Then keep me around."
"All right, I promise. After all, I want to enjoy the PML as much as you do. You can trust me on that, at least."
"Hmph. I'll be sure to keep that in mind."
"Hmph... It seems I was able to infiltrate their unit successfully."
"Now I have to decide if I truly do wish to start fresh on Pasio as a sync pair..."

"That's the kind of world I live in. Take my advice and go back where you came from before you regret it."
  • Random conversation
"In the past, I brought various organizations under my own control to form Team Rainbow Rocket."
"But I was forced to step down thanks to a certain kid who got in my way. I'm in the middle of a new plot as we speak."
"To be honest, you remind me a lot of that kid, <player>."
  • If spoken to again
"You've managed to pique my interest, kid.
"You and your partner... You're destined to keep growing stronger, and I look forward to watching it happen."

"Don't believe me? Hmph... How much of what people say do you think is true anyway?"
  • If spoken to again
"If society labels someone as evil, does it mean everything that person says or does is wrong? Is that what you believe?"
"In a society like that, any minority viewpoint could easily be considered evil. Is that the world you want to live in?"
"Hmph... Sorry, that got a little deep."
  • Random conversation
"People like there to be clear lines between good and evil, right and wrong."
"When I carry out my evil schemes, some people in this world profit. Some people are helped in other ways."
"You probably think it's wrong to cause trouble for people and Pokémon in general."
"But when people wave their self-righteousness around like a giant flag, tha causes its own trouble, too."
"Right, wrong, good, evil... People think everything has to be black and white, but that's just not how it is."
  • If spoken to again
"There's one thing I do know..."
"I'm drawn to strength. I like power. And that's because neither strength nor power are inherently good or evil."
"The strong will win. It's got nothing to do with right or wrong... That's the real truth."
  • Random conversation
"Pokémon are a business enterprise. Unless both parties are profiting, nothing gets done."
"And by profit, I mean money. When it comes to business, there's no room for things like friendship or caring for one another."
"I understand where you're coming from, though. I can appreciate your viewpoint."
  • If spoken to again
"It's good that we all want different things. That's how things get done in a business."
"The world should be full of different opinions and viewpoints."
"I just wonder if you'll ever come over to my side one day."
  • Random conversation
"I'm a mean old man. I could be lying and deceiving you right now, and you wouldn't even know it."
"The world is made up of people who deceive each other every day. We lie and we get lied to. That's how it works."
"It'll all start to click for you someday when you're older, kid."
  • If spoken to again
"Not all adults are mean old liars, but there are some who are."
"But there are kids out there like that, too. The world's full of all kinds of different people."
  • Special log-in conversation
"Ah, you again."
"Keep your guard up around this place, kid. Some bad guys like me have got their eyes on you."
  • Special gift conversation
"You can have this. Hope it's useful."
"You get to figure out what to do with it on your own."
Sync Pair Story - A Day with Giovanni
"Such vastness... Humanity cannot even begin to compare to the enormity of the ocean."
"Don't you think so, too, <player>?"
"Yes, I know you're there."
"How about it? Come gaze at the ocean with me."
"... ... ..."
"Well, you're a cautious one, aren't you. Won't approach me that easily, huh?"
You're a bad person, aren't you.: "Heh. You certainly have guts, talking to me like that."
What are you scheming?: "Don't worry too much about it. I'm just enjoying the view right now."
"I understand that you don't trust me. It's not like you're hiding it."
"You're right in thinking that I'm not a good man. But I take no pleasure in hurting people for no reason."
"Especially Trainers who show so much promise, such as yourself."
"You don't have anything to worry about...for now."
What do you mean?: "Hmph. Just up to one of my sinister plans."
What are you after?: "Hmph. Just up to one of my sinister plans."
"And Mewtwo is my ultimate tool for realizing those plans."
"Ah, look at the rage in your eyes!"
"It must really bother you that I call Pokémon tools."
"I wonder how angry you would be if I were to make you and your Pokémon into accessories to my misdeeds."
"You wouldn't let that slide, would you?"
You got that right!: "I like your gusto, kid! I knew you had something special about you!"
You'd never get away with it!: "I like your gusto, kid! I knew you had something special about you!"
"I have great expectations for your future."
"The two of you will undoubtedly become strong enough to oppose me someday."
"Hmph. I look forward to that day. Will you be an obstacle that hinders me...?"
"Or maybe you'll join me and willingly become my tool."
I'd never work with you!: "Hmph. We'll see... We have plenty of time until then."
... ... ...: "Hmph. We'll see... We have plenty of time until then."
"I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with your future."
"But until that day, you and I are just Trainers."
"I'll keep on exploring with you, for the time being."
"What were we talking about again? Right, gazing at the ocean."
"Take a good look while you can, kid."
"Before you know it, everything you see here will belong to me!"
"If you want to win it all back from me..."
"you'd better not hold anything back when you battle me!"
"I like those who show strength!"
"I sincerely look forward to you becoming strong enough to face me!"

In the anime

Giovanni in the Sun & Moon series

In the main series

Main article: Giovanni (anime)

Giovanni appears in the anime as the head of Team Rocket. Unlike members of other criminal organizations, he is a recurring character in all of the series so far, usually keeping in contact with the Team Rocket trio.

In Pokémon Origins

Giovanni in Pokémon Origins

Giovanni appeared in File 3: Giovanni. Red first recalled meeting him at the Rocket Hideout. They later encountered again at Silph Co. after Team Rocket had taken over the building. Seeing Red's arrogant and determined attitude to stop Team Rocket every time, Giovanni decided to put him in his place, and battled Red's Charizard with his Nidoqueen, winning easily before escaping with a helicopter, declaring that Red could never understand what he was hoping to achieve.

Giovanni as a child

Giovanni appeared once more as the Viridian Gym Leader. Giovanni accepted his Gym challenge, but Red claimed that he would battle him as the enemy of all Pokémon, instead of a Gym Leader. Hearing this, Giovanni put aside his usual Gym Leader battling team and took out his strongest pair of Pokémon, contained within Ultra Balls. The first one was Rhyhorn, which single-handedly was able to defeat four of Red's Pokémon before drawing with his Hitmonlee. During the battle, Giovanni started actually feeling excited, and wondered why he was feeling that way. When he saw the pose Red took while sending out his Charizard, he finally remembered his childhood passion for Pokémon and battling, and wondered how he could have ever turned into a person who only treated Pokémon as tools for business. After Red's Charizard had defeated Giovanni's last Pokémon, Rhydon, Giovanni offered him the Earth Badge as a proof of his victory. Red, however, refused to take a Badge from the Boss of Team Rocket. Seeing this, Giovanni turned to his minions, informing them that from that moment onward, Team Rocket would be officially disbanded. He then turned back to Red, now offering the Badge to him not as the Boss of Team Rocket but as the Viridian City Gym Leader. Red accepted the Earth Badge and left, heading for the Pokémon League.

As his battle with Red had reminded Giovanni of how Pokémon could be taken as fun rather than business, he decided that he wanted to find a new path for himself and his Pokémon, without being the Boss of Team Rocket any longer.

Giovanni first appeared in The Chase. After the International Police had failed to find him during a raid at the Viridian Gym, he was seen standing on a hill near Viridian City, declaring that Team Rocket would never fall, before walking away. Along with his disapparance, rumors about Team Rocket's disbandment began circling around.

He appeared again in a flashback in The Legacy. Looker approached Giovanni's son, Silver, hoping to find information on him as he had not been seen since his disappearance three years prior. However, all Silver could describe was his own last encounter with Giovanni three years ago, in which the two had a falling out that fractured their relationship.

Trivia

  • Giovanni is the only Gym Leader in the games to appear outside of his Gym in Generation I, a feature that would become more and more common up to Generation IV, during and after which all Gym Leaders in the featured regions appear outside of their Gym in one way or another.
    • He is also the only Gym Leader not to use the A Trainer Appears (Boy Version) song.
  • In the English version of Pokémon Stadium, his name is misspelled "Giovani" (with one n). This is because the space for Trainer names only allows seven characters, whilst Giovanni's name has eight.
  • In the official Red and Blue guide from Nintendo Power, Giovanni was labelled to be a regional boss of Team Rocket (implying he's not the absolute leader). This was invalidated in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, where it was made clear that Giovanni was the absolute leader of Team Rocket (even having an office in Johto).
  • Giovanni is likely based on the boss of a Yakuza faction, possibly more on the bakuto factions than others, considering Team Rocket's former ownership of the Celadon Game Corner. Outside of Japan, this reference is localized, making him more akin to a Mafia boss (especially considering his English name being Italian in origin).
  • In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Giovanni and Norman are tied for using more different species of Pokémon than any other Gym Leader at the Pokémon World Tournament, with a total of 10.
  • In Pokémon Yellow, he is the only Gym Leader who uses a Pokémon not of the type he specializes in during Gym battles.
  • In his official Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon artwork, Giovanni has the same pose as Mega Mewtwo X in its official artwork, just mirrored.
  • Artwork made by Ken Sugimori suggests that Giovanni was not originally going to be the Gym Leader of Viridian City.[2]
  • Giovanni debuted in Pokémon GO as a GO Snapshot photobomb at Pokémon GO Fest in Yokohama.
  • The teaser trailer for the debut of Team GO Rocket in GO contains the line "Earth is where I shall unleash my evil schemes next!" This is a reference to Giovanni's final line in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, in which he ponders "Now...what new world shall I unleash my evil schemes upon...?" before warping away from Aether Paradise.
