J's first set of henchmen

Only two of J's henchmen are shown to have their own Pokémon. These particular henchmen catalog all of the Pokémon J has stolen. One of them used a Golbat to battle Ash's Pikachu before Ash, Jessie, and James attempted to sneak off J's airborne base after rescuing Pikachu, Team Rocket's Meowth, and Melodi's Gardevoir. Some of these henchmen were captured by Officer Jenny at the end of their first appearance. The ones that weren't captured appeared in Ill-Will Hunting!. In this episode, the other important henchman appeared, also using a Golbat to fight Pikachu.

These same henchmen reappeared in Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part 1 and Part 2, where more of their Pokémon appeared. They appeared once more in Pillars of Friendship!, with even more of their Pokémon.

The henchmen made a brief appearance in The Needs of Three! alongside J after her successful mission to capture Mesprit, Azelf, and Uxie. They were aboard her ship when it was destroyed by the lake guardians. It is unknown whether any of the henchmen were able to get off the ship before it exploded.
