Nicola (じゅかい Jukai), otherwise referred to as Madame Boss (女ボス Lady Boss) is the former Boss of Team Rocket, and mother of the current Boss, Giovanni. Despite being in effective retirement, Nicola is considered the supreme authority on all matters related to Team Rocket, and her opinion on matters still supercedes that of her son.
Her primary focus seems to be on making money. This can be based upon numerous facts, including her reaction to hearing a recording proving the existence of Mew, a creature that could bring Team Rocket immense fortune. She responds with the quip "Can we make a CD out of it?" However, she is considered to be an effective leader and does not show any real ineptness at her job.
- Her name, Jukai, comes from the term used for the forest Aokigahara at the base of Mt. Fuji, a forest well known as a suicide hot-spot. It serves as a parallel to her son's Japanese name, Sakaki, a sacred tree in Shinto religion, while her name stems from a forest typically associated with death.
