Murph (Japanese: イマチ Imachi) was a Pokémon Ranger from the Ringtown Ranger base. His partner then was a Slowpoke, who is apparently the faster of the two. Murph was most likely a rank 1 Ranger and is highly incompetent, often dropping his Capture Styler even just taking it out of his pocket. Due to this, he was often given rather unimportant missions. Sometimes, when he had no mission, he would make up his own mission. Murph seems to be popular among the other Rangers for his personality.
In Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, he is no longer a ranger. However, he is the PR representative of the Ranger Union. His father (known as Pamur due to being Murph's Pa) is the leader of a research team in the Hia Valley and can be found in the Shiver Camp. His dad gave him a gift from the valley, which is eventually found out to be a shard from the Blue Gem. The gem was eventually used to make the Vatonage Styler so Murph went out on his own to Almia Castle to get a new shard.
He sometimes makes contests for the Rangers, like capturing the seven Eeveelutions. The winner receives a wood carved trophy and gets to listen to Murph's song with 102 verses.
Murph is also present in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, where he is still the Ranger Union's PR chief. He is introduced to the player in a flashback at the beginning of the game, then travels to the Oblivia islands in order to deliver a message from Professor Hastings. He remains an important supporting character, commanding a wooden ship, called The Union and providing transport among the islands.

Murph's theme song
"The Theme for Murph"
Go, go, go, Ranger go!
Ranger Murph's on the turf. ~♪
Ooh, yeah, yeah!
He's always there to take the call!
You can knock him down, but he won't stay down!
(Spin that styler, baby!)
He's always willing to answer the call!
Go, go, go, Ranger fly!
Ranger Murph's on the surf!
Ooh, yeah, yeah! He's so fly!
- For unknown reasons, he always says "Yes, Roger!" when receiving commands in the English version of the first Ranger game - likely to mimic the way people affirm commands over walkie-talkie.
- His favorite kind of Pokémon is Hippowdon.
