From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Raoul Contesta (Japanese: コンテスタ Contesta), often referred to as Mr. Contesta, is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. He is one of the judges of Pokémon Contests, along with Mr. Sukizo and Nurse Joy.
Contesta is the main Contest judge, and also the Chief of the Pokémon Activities Committee. He is usually the first one to comment on the Pokémon, and the one who offers advice to the Coordinators.
In The Ribbon Cup Caper, Contesta helped look for the Ribbon Cup, which had been stolen by Brodie.
- In the English dub of the anime, Contesta is the second character to regain his original voice actor following the voice actor switch, the first being Giovanni.
- Both of these characters were voiced by Craig Blair before regaining their original voice actors.
