     Sleight 

Elijah Alaric/Sleight

Team Rocket's highest ranked member, and the head of the Shadow Admins, Sleight acts as the main leader of the organization, personally overseeing the region of Kanto. Cold, precise, and cunning, Sleight has yet to find an opponent that he could not personally defeat in battle.
  • Big Bad: Formerly, as part of a Big Bad Ensemble with the likes of Sombra and Ford. However, the Ancient Darkrai made him realize that there were more important things to take care of than defeating Team Liberty, who had by that point proven themselves incredibly useful for combating such large threats.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Soil Colossus never stood a chance.
  • The Chessmaster
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette
  • Heel–Face Turn
  • Icy Blue Eyes: A notable contrast to his standing as a Fire-Type Trainer.
  • Klingon Promotion: Originally gained the position of Team Rocket's leader by killing Giovanni.
  • Meaningful Name
    • "Sleight"—as in, "sleight of hand"—is very fitting, considering Sleight's penchant for always having some sort of back-up plan hidden in his sleeve.
    • His last name, "Alaric," can be translated to "ruler of all." Again, fitting for someone who pretty much ruled over four regions.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: When Kyle and Ray brought Jupiter to warn him about what had happened to Team Galactic, Sleight appeared so distracted by Levi's disappearance—a sharp contrast to his typical self—that the effectiveness of the warning was justifiably brought into question.
  • Playing with Fire: Sleight's specialty.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure
  • Story-Breaker Power: Presented this way toward the beginning of the story along with many of the other important NPCs, like Joker and Ford. This was primarily justified given that the vast majority of characters were just starting out, and has slowly faded away as time goes on. Even so, he is still regarded as an incredibly powerful trainer.
  • The Stoic
  • Tranquil Fury
  • Two First Names

     Joker 

Vivian Moreno/Joker

Sleight's second-in-command and the Shadow Admin of Johto, Joker is a ruthless individual who relishes the war against Team Liberty.
  • Action Girl
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: The second most powerful member of Team Rocket, and one of its leaders.
  • Badass Boast: In response to Adams' invitation to use any number of Pokémon to defeat her: "No. I only need one."
  • Berserk Button: Threatening or alluding to threats toward her children.
  • The Dragon: To Sleight.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones
  • Gone Horribly Right: Her experimental power amplification machine, which caused her Golurk to grow to roughly eighty feet, ended up backfiring on her
  • Heel Realization: Losing control of and almost being crushed by Leviathan forces Joker to reevaluate her attitude towards life.
  • Oh, Crap!: When she realizes that Calvin Truman is, in fact, Levi Alaric, and therefore in Ford's custody.
  • Psychic Power: One of her specialties, the Psychic-Type. Possesses them herself, as well.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Demonstrated by her insistence on taking Adams into her own custody following the events at Havoc, as she would be able to incarcerate her with more supporting evidence than Team Liberty would be able to.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Her statements regarding Quincy Adams made her out as this following Leviathan's death; however, this is ultimately subverted due to the reasons stated under Reasonable Authority Figure.
  • Soul Power: Her other specialty, the Ghost-Type.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Presented this way toward the beginning of the story along with many of the other important NPCs, like Sleight and Ford. This was primarily justified given that the vast majority of characters were just starting out, and has slowly faded away as time goes on. Even so, she is still regarded as an incredibly powerful trainer.
  • The Starscream: Implied, but subverted. She briefly considered using the powered-up Leviathan to overthrow Sleight, though has not come up again, and in that time it's been shown that she does genuinely care about Sleight's well-being.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Remains as this among the Shadow Admins in spite of her own Heel–Face Turn, being the most aggressive and most reluctant to put up with the ceasefire.
  • Unfinished, Untested, Used Anyway: Her Power Amplification machine, which successfully increased her Golurk's size and power at the cost of it slowly losing control over its actions.

     Bounty 

Devon Coleman/Bounty

Team Rocket's third-in-command, at least until his Heel–Face Turn. Bounty is the Shadow Admin of Sinnoh.

     Ace 

Heather Windred/Ace

The fourth of Team Rocket's original Shadow Admins. Ace oversaw the Hoenn branch of the Rocket Empire. After failing to quell a mass rebellion in Hoenn she was exiled by Sleight and eventually killed by Buzz, who would later become her replacement.

     Buzz 

Max Bussle/Buzz

A former Rocket Executive, later the replacement for Shadow Admin Ace.
  • Bald of Evil
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Specializes in Bug-Types.
  • Demoted to Extra: Dropped into obscurity after his player disappeared.
  • Humiliation Conga: Failed to kill Goldhawk despite having him cornered, losing one of his beloved Yanma in the process; allowed the same Team Liberty Strike Team to infiltrate Paradise twice in a ridiculously short span of time, losing his hostage—one of Team Liberty's three leaders—in the second attack; wound up injured and out of action in all three of those battles; and failed to provide any resistance when the Hojohsin League and the Darkrai moved to take over Hoenn. Little wonder Sleight's patience had run out by the time of the Soil Colossus counterattack.
  • Killed Off for Real
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: On the receiving end of this from Sleight just before the attack on Soil Colossus.
  • Running Gag: In every major battle that he has taken part in, Buzz has injured his right shoulder.
    • Up until the Dismantling of Soil Colossus, where he remained uninjured until he was shot in the chest.
  • Villain Decay: Started off as a genuine threat, killing Ace and almost killing Goldhawk in the span of a single battle, only to slip into a rapid decline from the Manaphy Arc onward.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: All but stated by Sleight. Unfortunately, Buzz only manages to turn this opinion around as he dies.

  • What the Hell, Hero?: Palmer calls him out on only wanting to save his friends from the Darkrais' effects.

     Jamie Arthur 

Jamie Arthur

A Team Rocket member, unique in being the first successfully cloned human in Team Rocket's history, using James Arthur's genetic material.
  • Cloning Blues: Far too much in her introduction. Writer eventually calmed her down about it, and started trying to develop her as a character all her own.
  • Manchild: Justified by her being a clone. She is literally a child in a grown woman's body.
  • Opposite-Sex Clone: of James Arthur
  • The Red Mage: Describes her team overall, having a mix of Physical fighters, Special attack slingers, and a healer, her team has a variety of different specialities, but thus she has not mastered any of them.

     Hannah Wright

A Team Rocket Executive who first appeared on a mission with Dack, and later led a campaign in order to get revenge on her childhood frenemy, Shannon Willows.
  • Heroic BSoD: Suffered this at the hands of Pride, after he revealed that her brilliant plans had actually been his machinations.
  • It's All About Me: To the point that Pride chose her as one of his targets.

     Victoire Coleman 

Victoire Coleman

Bounty's youngest child and second daughter. Deaf and born with heterochromia, Victoire spent much of her early life suffering in silence and with few friends, until she met Esen, who helped her become more comfortable with herself. She spent much of her life following Esen's sudden disappearance wondering what had happened to her friend.
  • Action Girl: She's certainly a fighter, and implied by Bounty to be the spunkiest and most rebellious of her siblings.
  • Childhood Friends: With Esen, though Esen doesn't remember her or anything about that period of her life.
    • It's also a Childhood Friend Romance, with Victoire being very straightforward about her feelings for Esen, although it's unknown if Esen reciprocates.
  • Hiding the Handicap: Wears sunglasses to conceal her heterochromia and keeps the hair around her ears long enough that she can cover her hearing aids if she wants to.
  • Mismatched Eyes: Of the heterochromia variety—one is brown, the other blue.
  • Noodle Incident: Few details are actually given as to how she ended up captured by Quentin Dallas.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: In her first appearance, due to receiving Esen as her randomized opponent. This, in addition to Esen's uncommon name and Signature Mon, actually helped her recognize Esen.
  • Reading Lips: Downplayed. Victoire can do this to a degree, but relies more heavily on her hearing aids than anything else.
  • Straight Gay

     Emmerich Coleman 

Emmerich Coleman

Bounty's son, and his oldest child. Emmerich is a General within Team Rocket.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Team Rocket, putting him into conflict with his father when Bounty separated from the main Rocket organization. It appears to be a more or less one-sided issue on Emmerich's part, however.
