This Amoonguss is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon owned by James. It is the second Pokémon that he obtained in the Unova region.


James' Amoonguss first appeared along with Jessie's Frillish when Team Rocket attacked Ash and his friends for the first time since "Operation Tempest" and the temporary retreat back to Kanto. It was used to capture Ash's Pikachu and Nanette's Tepig, but was defeated by Ash's Unfezant. James's Amoonguss is often used alongside Jessie's Woobat in a couple of episodes. In the series finale of "Pokémon: Best Wishes!", Amoonguss was given away to Giovanni at Team Rocket's Headquarters.
