|“||Cliff's my name. Battling's my game.||„|
|~ Cliff's introduction.|
|“||Blanche. You overthink. You overcalculate. You overcomplicate. But can’t you see? It's pretty simple. Your time as a leader is OVER!!!||„|
|~ Cliff's message to Blanche.|
Cliff is one of Team GO Rocket's four leaders and a force to be reckoned with. He is known for being short-tempered yet sweet.
Cliff was the first Rocket Leader to be encountered by Professor Willow and Blanche, the leader of Team Mystic. They were testing a Rocket Radar prototype, they were approached by Cliff, whom asked them to leave as they were within Team Rocket territory. His command to retreat was in a surprisingly gentle tone. As they were unprepared, they retreat. They eventually met again, (after Cliff sent her a message), and battled. Cliff used a Shadow Tyranitar and Blanche used a Lapras. Blanche ended up winning the fight, and Cliff retreated.
Cliff has dark skin, chin hair in the shape of a Pokéball, a black cap, blue shoulder pads, a black jumpsuit with Team Rocket's logo on it, white gloves, white shoes, black eyes, and black hair.
Cliff has a contradictory personality. He is, on one hand, known to be a kind and gentle spirit, renowned for having a big heart. When challenged or disturbed, however; becomes quick-tempered and hard-headed.
- Cliff can only be summoned with a Rocket Radar.
- Cliff's signature Pokémon is a Shadow Tyranitar.
- After losing, Cliff calls his Pokémon weak and abandons them.
