Giovanni is the leader and boss of Team Rocket.
Operation Tempest Giovanni
arrived in East Isshu to kick off the final stage of Operation Tempest. The mission was to use Meloetta
to unlock the Reveal Glass in a temple that disappeared in the sea which was never again to be found. The Rocket Gang was able to find that temple, capture Meloetta
and unlock the Reveal Glass and attempted to conquer the entire Isshu region.
The Reveal Glass was operated by Giovanni
who used it to summon Landlos, Tornelos and Voltolos. He was not able to control them for long as Ash Ketchum
and his friends intervened and stopped him from controlling the trio. The mirror somehow affected Giovanni
away from the main centerpiece on the floor which stopped the control over Giovanni
as he was attempting to destroy the Isshu region, not conquer it. After his ambitions were prevented., he then decided to return to the Rocket Gang headquarters in the Kanto region.
