Although grunts are first seen in ''[[PS001|A Glimpse of the Glow]]'' searching for {{p|Mew}} in [[Pallet Town]], Team Rocket as an organization was not introduced until ''[[PS006|Gyarados Splashes In!]]'' in the {{chap|Red, Green & Blue}}. Here,, they are mentioned by {{adv|Professor Oak}} as an evil syndicate that use Pokémon for sinister purposes, mostly experiments. They are then seen looking for a [[Moon Stone]] in [[Mt. Moon]]. After running into Red and Misty, they battled them with a {{p|Rhyhorn}}, and when it looked like [[Pika]] may defeat it, a mysterious injection caused it to evolve into {{p|Rhydon}}. It was still defeated and the admin shown to be controlling it was [[Koga]].
Then they are seen with Red infiltrating their ranks trying to find {{adv|Green}}, who stole some information on Mew that was important for them. It was also revealed that under the [[Celadon Game Corner|Rocket Game Corner]] was a research facility for {{adv|Mewtwo}}. After Green was found they revealed another Pokémon with a special ability, a Tauros with the ability to control other Pokémon with a swish of its tail. However they were defeated when Green's [[Ditty]] transformed into that Tauros and make the other Pokémon defeat themselves. However, they believed they were alright since they retrieved the disc on Mew, which was, in fact, a fake. After realizing this, they go out to find a Mew they though they saw, which was Ditty again. Eventually, the grunts figure it out and run into Red and Green who found the real Mew. Later, as it was shown that the battle was going south, Mew stepped in and knocked out the Rocket that was leading this hunt and his {{p|Jynx}}, leaving after that and Red and Green get away as well.
