From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Harrison (Japanese: ハヅキ Hazuki) is a character from the Pokémon anime. He began his journey in Littleroot Town, Hoenn, and competed in the Silver Conference. His Japanese voice actor is 鳥海勝美 Katsumi Toriumi, his Latin-American Spanish voice actor is Enzo Fortuny and his English voice actor is Wayne Grayson.
He first appeared in Pop Goes the Sneasel. Along with Ash and his friends, Harrison tried to ward off a wild Sneasel that was guarding the sacred Ho-Oh flame. Harrison promised that he would capture it. Using his Houndoom, he did just that.
After many cameos during the qualifying rounds of the Silver Conference, Harrison appeared in Can't Beat the Heat, where he and Ash began their six-on-six battle. It continued in Playing with Fire and Johto Photo Finish. In the latter episode, Harrison defeated Ash, but went on to lose to Jon Dickson.
It was Harrison who convinced Ash to go to the Hoenn region. He told Ash about Professor Birch and all the Pokémon that Ash had probably never seen before.
This is a listing of Harrison's known Pokémon:
- Harrison has similarities to Ash's Hoenn League rivals, Morrison and Tyson. They are connected both by the "-son" ending at the end of their name and their Pokémon. Tyson has a Sceptile, Harrison has a Blaziken and Morrison has a Swampert. These are the final evolutions of the Hoenn starters.
- Harrison's name is also similar to that of another of Ash's Silver Conference opponents, Jackson. Along with the aforementioned "-son" ending, they are both named after famous singers. (George Harrison and Michael Jackson respectively.)
- Due to a dub error, it is at one point claimed that Harrison's hometown is Silver Town.
