Zipp (Japanese: ジップ Zip) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. He is a member of Team Skull, who often appears alongside Tupp and Rapp.



Zipp first appeared in Alola to New Adventure!, in which he, Tupp, and Rapp challenged Kiawe to a battle with his Charizard on the line. Zipp and the other Grunts took on his Turtonator nine against one, until Ash came to assist Kiawe with his Pikachu. After a short battle, Zipp and his partners were defeated by Turtonator's Z-Move Inferno Overdrive, forcing them to retreat.

Zipp reappeared in Young Kiawe Had a Farm!, in which he, Tupp, and Rapp attacked Kiawe and Ash, seeking revenge for their previous defeat. However, the trio was quickly defeated by Pikachu's Gigavolt Havoc.

In Alolan Open House!, he, Tupp, and Rapp visited the Pokémon School, where they stole some Ride Tauros and started wreaking havoc at the school. They were soon confronted by Delia, who took the Grunts on using Ash's Litten. When Ash and his classmates arrived, Team Skull was soon sent off again by Pikachu's Gigavolt Havoc.

He reappeared in A Team-on-Team Tussle!, where he encountered Team Rocket for the first time. Both teams were after a Darkinium Z which Team Rocket managed to take.

He reappeared again in A Glaring Rivalry!, where he had a battle with Gladion but was quickly defeated by Lycanroc's Stone Edge.

He appeared again in SM065, where he and several other Team Skull Grunts battled Ilima. All of them were defeated by Eevee's Last Resort.

He reappeared yet again in SM068, when he and his teammates attacked Ash, keen to get his Poipole. The battle ended when his Garbodor's arm got blocked and released a horrible smell. He was seen outside the Pokémon Center by Ash and his classmates who were on work experience. Eventually Zipp brought Garbodor out for treatment where it was discovered a build up of poison blocked Garbodor's arm. They cleared the blockage and Zipp left.
