In ''Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire'', Giovanni himself played a minor role and the majority of his appearances were restrictedrelegated to Meowth's [[Boss fantasy|boss fantasies]]. Beginning in ''[[AG002|A Ruin with a View]]'', Giovanni oversaw Jessie, James, and Meowth's efforts to set up a base of operations in the [[Hoenn]] region, with the secret intent of learning about [[Team Aqua]] and [[Team Magma]], the villainous teams residing there.
In ''[[AG027|A Three Team Scheme!]]'', Giovanni contacted the trio for an update on their progress, but was disappointed by their results. They did tell him that they had secured a [[Secret Base]], however, and Giovanni told them to oversee its completion.
====''[[Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl]]''====

InOnce ''Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl'', much like ''Advanced Generation'' before,again Giovanni's presence and role were minor and awas majority of his appearances weremainly restrictedrelegated to Meowth's [[Boss fantasy|boss fantasies]]. When {{TRT}} called him from Sinnoh, Giovanni hastily and un-enthusiastically approved the trio's plan to set up a new Team Rocket base in ''[[DP002|Two Degrees of Separation!]]''.
In ''[[DP080|The Thief That Keeps on Thieving!]]'', Giovanni was in his office when two grunts informed him about a special delivery from Sinnoh; the trio had sent him a {{TP|Jessie|Yanma}}. After learning they had actually received a supply of Yanma, he sent it back to the trio.

In ''Pokémon the Series: XY'', Giovanni's role was relegatedreduced to the Team Rocket trio's benefactor during their assignments in the [[Kalos]] region. He appeared in ''[[XY003|A Battle of Aerial Mobility!]]'', where he told the trio to work hard in Kalos. In ''[[XY029|Heroes — Friend and Faux Alike!]]'', Jessie and James reported their progress in capturing Pokémon with their obtaining of {{TP|James|Inkay}} and {{TP|Jessie|Pumpkaboo}}. Pleased with their report, Giovanni told them to keep up their work.
In ''[[XY107|An Explosive Operation!]]'', the trio contacted Giovanni to tell him of their latest activity. They told him of [[Team Flare|an organization wearing orange suits]], which he was already familiar with, and of the existence of [[Squishy]]. He became alarmed after learning said organization could hinder Team Rocket, and ordered the trio to investigate them. Later, after fighting with Team Flare, the trio contacted him again to tell him that another Zygarde Core transformed into {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Zygarde|a much more powerful form}}. Intrigued by this, Giovanni assigned them a mission to claim Zygarde's power for Team Rocket.
