Team Great Rocket (Japanese: グレートロケット団 Great Rocket-dan, literally Great Rocket Gang), abbreviated Team GR (Japanese: GR団, GR-dan, literally GR Gang), are the villainous group of the Trading Card Game Islands, who attempt to steal the Legendary Cards of the Grand Masters in Pokémon Trading Card Game 2: The Invasion of Team GR!. Led by Biruritchi, they take over TCG Island and kidnap several of the Club Masters.

Certain Team Great Rocket executives wear long, hooded cloaks with masks. The masks cover the entire face and feature the symbol of any one of the then-current seven TCG types. Four of these executives, later appear unmasked at the fortress corresponding to their mask. The fifth one, GR5, however, appears to only operate the blimp that travels from TCG Island to GR Island. Another one of their members is Ronald, the Rival from the original Pokémon Trading Card Game, who goes undercover as GRX to gather intel on decks of key members of the group, which are then leaked to the player.
