Tom is one of two Team Rocket goons that appear in Vermillion City. Tom and another goon, Jerry, challenge you, Joey and Maruto to battle, with the condition that if you lose, you must give them all your Pokémon. If you lose, however, you do not actually lose your Pokémon.



Tom and Jerry use Pokemon stolen from trainers aboard the S.S. Anne. A complete list can be found on the Vermillion City page.


  • Tom and Jerry's names are derived from the cartoon Tom and Jerry.
  • Since Team Rocket is later revealed to be on the good side in Lavender Town, the criminal actions of this duo present a potential plot conflict.
