'''Team Rocket Grunts''' (Japanese: '''ロケットだんいん''' ''Team Rocket Group Member'' in Generation I, '''ロケットだんいんのしたっぱ''' ''Team Rocket UnderlingGroup Member's Underling'' in Generation II, '''ロケットだんのしたっぱ''' ''Team Rocket Group's Underling'' in Generations III, IV, and VII) are members of [[Team Rocket]]. They act as fodder, enforcers, soldiers, workmen, crooks, and backup for various leaders in the criminal organization.
 
==In the games==
Being the underlings of Team Rocket, the grunts have appeared in all of the games this villainous team has appeared in; namely, in [[Generation I]] and [[Generation II]], as well as their remakes, {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}} and {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, respectively.
 
How grunts are referred to has varied slightly throughout the generations. A grunt is called '''Rocket''' (Japanese: '''ロケットだんいん''' ''TeamRocket RocketGroup Member'') in Generation I, '''Rocket Grunt''' (Japanese: '''ロケットだんいんのしたっぱ''' ''Team Rocket UnderlingGroup Member's Underling'') in Generation II, and finally '''Team Rocket Grunt''' (Japanese: '''ロケットだんのしたっぱ''' ''Team Rocket Group's Underling'') in Generations {{gen|III}}, {{gen|IV}}, and {{gen|VII}}. Additionally, unlike other Trainer classes, Team Rocket Grunts are never given individual names, a tradition continued with the other [[villainous teams]], whose members are also referred to as simply grunts. Due to the nature of how NPC Trainers are named, however, the Trainer class was technically ''Rocket'' in Generations I and II, and ''Team Rocket'' in Generations III, IV, and VII, with the name from Generation II onwards being ''Grunt''. Despite them all having the same in-game name, there are four grunts that appear to be related to each other, the [[Rocket Brothers]], in [[Silph Co.]]
