Rocket Prize Master

The Rocket Prize Master

The Rocket Prize Master (Japanese: ロケット・ガチャット Rocket Gachat) is a mecha used by Team Rocket in the Pokémon anime. It is a capsule toy vending machine filled with many Poké Balls, and it is delivered to the required location by Team Rocket's Pelipper. By inserting Meowth's charm and turning the crank, one or two Poké Balls are dispensed for Jessie and James to temporarily use. The Rocket Prize Master first appeared in Ivysaur's Mysterious Tower!.

The Poké Balls dispensed by the Rocket Prize Master are purple and branded with the Team Rocket insignia, and they will always drop a leaflet containing basic information of the Pokémon, including their name, category, and moves, when thrown. The coloration indicates the Pokémon they contain are the property of Team Rocket rather than that of Jessie and James themselves.
