Goneff (Japanese: 怪盗ゴローニャ Mysterious Thief Golonya) is a character of the day who appeared in The Wayward Wobbuffet. He is a master thief who robs banks, leaving nothing behind.

When Jessie's Wobbuffet accidentally jumped onto his truck, it was holding the key to a Poké Pod containing Ash's Pikachu, after an attempt to steal him by Team Rocket went wrong. Soon afterward, Goneff took Wobbuffet away and Ash, his friends, and Officer Jenny raced to track down Wobbuffet and retrieve the key to free Pikachu. In the process, Goneff was arrested.

Goneff's Golem
Goneff has a Golem, which he uses for his schemes. Goneff was also shown to have a Golem-shaped balloon. When Team Rocket got into Goneff's hideaway building to retrieve Jessie's Wobbuffet that Goneff had unintentionally kidnapped, he sent Golem out, only to be confronted shortly thereafter by Ash and Totodile, who hit it with a Water Gun. Golem then used Double Team, creating three doubles of itself. Afterwards, it hurt Totodile badly. Totodile was about to be finished off when Wobbuffet used Counter on an incoming attack from Golem, sending it flying towards Goneff. Golem and its Trainer were then arrested.

Golem's known moves are Tackle, Double Team and Dynamic Punch.
