is a Guitarist and a Pokémon Trainer. He is known as the Wandering Guitarist but people also call him Jimmy the Pikachu Trainer. He travels around searching for strong Pikachu's to battle him. He can clearly be identified by the make-up he wears that makes him look like a Pikachu as well as the loud noise from his guitar.
He heard about Ash Ketchum
having a strong Pikachu and Jimmy
was searching for him when he encountered Team Rocket. He overheard Meowth
talking about a strong Pikachu. After searching for awhile, he found Ash's Pikachu
and wanted to battle but Ash Ketchum
had caught a cold so Serena
pretended to be Ash Ketchum
and battled him until Team Rocket showed up and tried to get both Pikachu's. Ash Ketchum
came out of the tent to see what was going on and realized what Team Rocket was up to. After fending off Team Rocket, Jimmy
realized that Serena
had tricked him but was impressed with her abilities as a trainer.
decided to battle against each other for real this time but it wasn't shown in the episode as they stopped to eat before the battle took place.
