Pokémon Poacher Brothers
The Pokémon Poacher Brothers are a gang of three poacher brothers.
Their respective names are Braggo (Japanese: グルー Glue), Chico (Japanese: チーコ Chico) and Blurt (Japanese: ハンポ Hampo).
Braggo is the leader, and he may be the oldest. He always speaks in rhyme, and orders his two brothers around. Chico is the inventor of the three. He is responsible for creating all of the machines the gang uses to poach Pokémon. The third brother is Blurt. He is self-described as quiet, but he is also clumsy and tends to break things.
They were first seen in Larvitar's mind during Address Unown, when an injured Unown gave Ash and the others a look inside the young Pokémon's mind. They appeared in person in Mother of All Battles. When Ash and his friends tried to return Larvitar, the Poacher Brothers once again tried to kidnap the mother, and they would have stolen Ash's Pikachu and Ranger Mason's Croconaw if they had time. Thanks to the help of Ranger Mason and Larvitar, their plan was thwarted and the gang was arrested.
| Tyranitar is the mother of Larvitar and is protected by Ranger Mason from poachers. It first appeared in a dimension caused by a Unown where it was shown when Larvitar was an egg the Pokémon Poacher Brothers stole it from her and hurt her causing her to get a scar. It appears in person in the next episode where it mistakes Ash and his friends for poachers and attacks them, Ash and his friends try and show they are good until Larvitar finally finds out that Tyranitar is his mother and stays put. Suddenly a net is fired and Tyranitar is trapped, the poachers then steal Tyranitar.
The poachers uses Team Rocket's balloon to dangle it from the sky and zap it with remote controls. Tyranitar is able to wiggle out and fire a Hyper Beam which destroys the balloon and is reunited with Larvitar. Larvitar uses Hidden Power and it uses Hyper Beam to destroy the poachers. In the end Ash decides to leave Larvitar with its mother.
Tyranitar and Larvitar also make a brief appearance in Spurt!.
