Reason: Heatmor's Japanese voice actor.


Manning (Japanese: マルフジ Marufuji) is a minor recurring character of the Pokémon anime. He first appeared in Jostling for the Junior Cup! where he participated in the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup. His first opponent was Kenton whom he defeated and advanced to the next round of the tournament. He appeared again in Battling Authority Once Again!, where he battled Trip in the second round and lost. He made a cameo appearance in Goodbye, Junior Cup - Hello Adventure!, where he lined up with all the other competitors in front of Alder, Cynthia, Caitlin and Freddy O'Martian.

He reappeared in BW103 to compete in the Higaki Conference. In BW104 he appeared on the screen showing the match-ups for the second round of the Conference, meaning he had made it through the first round. In BW105 he appeared once again on the screen of the Higaki Conference, now showing the match-ups for the last sixteen, meaning he had made it through the second and third rounds. In BW106, he lost to Imotaro, knocking him out of the Higaki Conference.


Manning's Heatmor
Heatmor was the first Pokémon that Manning used in the Junior Cup. It was able to defeat Kenton's Golett and advance its Trainer to the second round. It was sent out again in the second round, but quickly lost to Trip's Serperior.

Heatmor's only known move is Flamethrower.
