Pierce (Japanese: フリント Flint) is the villain in Pokemon. Pierce is a member of Team Rocket, who made his debut appearance in A Rival Battle for Club Champ!. He was first mentioned in The Bloom Is on Axew!, as sent by Giovanni to help Jessie , James and Meowth in a mission. In A Rival Battle for Club Champ!, when Jessie, James and Meowth were intercepted by Officer Jenny and the other police officers, Pierce came in driving a truck and drove away with the trio. Officer Jenny and the police followed until they came across a half-constructed road. The truck pushed on and toppled into the ground below and exploded. However the group escaped with jetpacks, and Pierce later gave them a briefcase and flew off.
He appeared again in A Home for Dwebble! where he gave the trio orders to head to a research facility. He then met up with them again, where Jessie handed him the data he wanted. He met the trio once again in A Night in the Nacrene City Museum! in Nacrene City and gave them orders about the dummy meteorite they received in Here Comes the Trubbish Squad!.
In Scraggy-Hatched to be Wild!, Pierce told the trio to meet him. He appeared in a helicopter and the trio jumped in. Aboard, he introduced Dr. Zager who examined the meteorite and told them that the materials were not from this world. In A Venipede Stampede! and Team Rocket vs. Team Plasma!, Pierce assisted Giovanni in obtaining the Meteonite and attempt to use it to conquer Unova. When this plan failed, Pierce retreated back to Kanto alongside Giovanni and Dr. Zager.
