Porter (Japanese: パーカー Parker) are guides on cruiseships that travel through the Decolore Islands.


Porter first appeared in Farewell, Unova! Setting Sail for New Adventures! where he was shown to take the tickets of passengers boarding the cruiseship departing the Nuvema Town harbor. Ash, Iris and Cilan gave their tickets to Porter, but he wasn't able to let them on board, as they didn't have the proper tickets. After Ash and his friends got the real tickets that were stolen by Team Rocket, he welcomed them aboard, and told them that he would accompany them on their travels through the Decolore Islands. He appeared again in the following episode as Ash and co. disembarked at Honey Island.

In Cilan and the Case of the Purrloin Witness!, Porter encountered Ash and friends yet again. The three were surprised to see Porter on a different cruiseship, albeit in a different uniform. Porter revealed that, like Nurse Joy, Officer Jenny, and Don George, he is part of a family of identical members, the Porter they encountered earlier being his first cousin.

Porter made his final appearance in Best Wishes Until We Meet Again!. Team Rocket attacked the cruise ship as it neared Vermilion City by raising it into the air with balloons before boarding and attempting to steal all of the passengers' Pokémon, with James even disguising himself as Porter to create confusion. While Ash, Iris and Cilan attempted to defeat Team Rocket, Porter fought them in an attempt to protect the passengers, only to be nearly thrown overboard. Later, after Team Rocket was driven off, Porter was cheered by the passengers for his efforts. He was last seen waving farewell to Ash, Iris, Cilan and Alexa as they disembarked in Vermilion City.

  • Each Porter has a different color on the collars of their jackets and the lining of their shoes.
    • The stripes and smokestacks on each cruise ship have the same color scheme as the collars and shoes the Porter working on that cruise have.
  • Although they are also part of a family of identical members, unlike Nurse Joy, Officer Jenny and Don George, Porter's Japanese name does not begin with the kana ジ, nor their English name begins with the sound, .
