Matori is a character appearing in the anime series.
She returned in Pokémon the Series: XY and Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon where she was mentioned by The Team Rocket trio and gained an Alolan Meowth after it officially joined Team Rocket by her boss Giovanni.
She also contacted the trio when they were planning on getting a Z-ring. She takes command of Team Rocket's Elite Force, the Matori Matrix and was seen heading to Alola to catch Lunala, Solgaleo, and the mysterious Pokémon Necrozma.
Sometime later, she accompanied her Alolan Meowth to Alola and they schemed on kidnapping both Bewear and Stufful, but they ended up havin their nefarious plan foiled, thanks to Jessie and James who managed to switch Stufful with Meowth in his disguise just in time. She got terribly injured during her airship's explosion, and is horrified of Bewear ever since.
Matori rarely removes her seriousness, notably towards her duty as a secretary of Giovanni, whom she always remains loyal to. She is incredibly harsh and demanding towards Jessie, James and Meowth, which leads to a tension between her and Jessie, who insults her behind her back, though she prefers ignoring their combative responses altogether.
As the leader of her special unit Matori Matrix, she is extremely vain because of her own high regards to her superior rank of being an elite operative. Goal-oriented, she will accomplish her goals at any cost, no matter how reckless her methods are.
Although Matori knows to reduce her potential losses such as picking Stufful instead of Bewear in order to reduce the risks of being caught by Bewear, she ends up developing a fear towards Bewear who answered her as she contacted the Team Rocket trio.
- She is the last character to be introduced in the Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl.
- The revelation of her name took the longest to happen in the anime in terms of confirming a recurring character.
