Jimmy (Japanese: ジミー Jimmy) is a recurring character who first appeared in Judgment Day!.
Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire
Jimmy considers himself a poor Trainer, having not won a single battle. He often felt he had bad luck, even though he actually had the opposite. Starting out with a Squirtle, he set out on a journey of his own. He soon added an Ivysaur to his team after he accidentally dropped a sandwich. They then encountered a Shiny Magikarp that fell out of Jimmy's shirt. Jimmy traded the Magikarp to a passerby without realizing its rarity and obtained a Charmeleon in return.
Afterwards, Jimmy went to Cerulean City and helped Daisy clean the Cerulean Gym, a task that earned him a Cascade Badge without having to battle for it. Sometime later, while Jimmy and his Pokémon were sleeping in a small fishing boat, the rope that was tying the boat to the Lilycove City dock became undone and the boat floated away into the ocean. By accident, they found themselves on Bomba Island and he decided to enroll in the island's Pokémon Battle Judge Training Institute.
Despite his efforts, Jimmy struggled to become a referee under Professor Serena. During a mock battle between Ash and Brock, Jimmy acted as the referee, though he proved to be particularly indecisive when it came to making rulings.
While mulling over Serena's advice that night, Team Rocket arrived with their mecha and stole Jimmy's Pokémon. He chased them and grabbed onto the mecha, though the trio continued to swat him away. Suddenly, his Wartortle evolved into Blastoise, breaking itself free of its containment capsule in the process before blasting Team Rocket off. He then decided to continue his original goal of becoming a Trainer and to return to Lilycove City. The next day, he waved farewell to Ash and his friends when they left the island.
Pokémon Journeys: The Series
Jimmy appeared again in Battling as Hard as Stone!, watching Steven and Ash's Masters Eight Tournament battle on television.

|Blastoise was Jimmy's starter Pokémon, who he obtained as a Squirtle. When Jimmy was in the Cerulean Gym, Wartortle, along with Ivysaur and Charmeleon, helped Jimmy clean up the Gym, which earned him the Cascade Badge. While on Bomba Island, it helped Jimmy in his jobs at the Pokémon Battle Judges Training Institute.
In Judgment Day!, Wartortle was caught by Team Rocket and tried breaking itself free from the mecha's prison Poké Ball-shaped capsules. When Jimmy held onto the mecha to rescue Wartortle, Team Rocket swatted Jimmy off of it and Wartortle, seeing Jimmy being beaten up by them, evolved into Blastoise. Due to its massive size, it broke itself free. With its newfound power, Blastoise easily defeated Team Rocket and sent them blasting off.
Blastoise's only known move is Hydro Pump.
|Jimmy first encountered Ivysaur in a forest after it ate the only snack that Jimmy and his Wartortle had left. Ivysaur felt bad and decided to aid them in searching for food, eventually joining Jimmy's team. When Jimmy was in the Cerulean Gym, Ivysaur helped Jimmy clean up the Gym, which earned him the Cascade Badge.
In Judgment Day!, Ivysaur was first seen carrying a box on Bomba Island and helped Jimmy in his works at the Pokémon Battle Judges School. One night, when Team Rocket arrived with their mecha, they took Ivysaur and placed it inside a prison shaped as a Poké Ball. It was freed later on by Jimmy's newly evolved Blastoise and finished Team Rocket off.
Ivysaur's known moves are Vine Whip and Razor Leaf.
|Charmeleon is one of the three Pokémon that is owned by Jimmy. Jimmy obtained Charmeleon when he accepted it from a trade with a passerby for a Shiny Magikarp that he accidentally possessed. When Jimmy was in the Cerulean Gym, Charmeleon helped Jimmy clean up the Gym, which earned him the Cascade Badge. While on Bomba Island, it helped Jimmy with his jobs at the Pokémon Battle Judges School.
In Judgment Day!, Team Rocket arrived with their mecha and imprisoned Jimmy's Pokémon, including Chameleon, with Poké Ball-shaped capsules. It was freed later on by Jimmy's newly evolved Blastoise and it helped finish Team Rocket off.
Charmeleon's only known move is Flamethrower.
|As he told Ash and his friends through flashback in Judgment Day!, Jimmy unintentionally caught a Shiny Magikarp in his shirt after falling into a river. Soon enough a passerby offered to trade his Charmeleon for the Magikarp, a trade Jimmy accepted.
None of Magikarp's moves are known.
