Wally (Japanese: ミツル Mitsuru) is a young, sickly boy who just moved to Petalburg City. Despite his illness, his dream is to train Pokémon.

His illness is never explained, but because of his symptoms and rapid recovery in clean air, most fans speculate that it is asthma. Some fans have noted a similarity between Wally and the Magical Pokémon Journey character Peanut.

In the games

Wally was a sick young boy who asked Norman, the Petalburg Gym Leader, to help him catch a Pokémon before he moves to Verdanturf Town to live with his aunt and uncle.

Norman allowed his child, the main character of Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald to assist Wally, and loaned Wally a Zigzagoon.

Using this, Wally was able to capture a Ralts.

Wally later shows up again in Mauville City, pleading with his uncle to let him challenge Wattson. He battles the player to prove his strength, but loses.

Wally eventually runs away from home and challenges the player at the end of Victory Road in Ever Grande City, seemingly totally recovered from his illness. He remains there, and it is possible to fight him several times per day.

According to the Trainer's Eyes, Wally's strategy is "We let it all hang out." Wally's favorite type of Pokémon is "Template:P2", and his self-introduction is "Pokémon and I have grown stronger together".

In the Pokémon Special manga

Wally's first Pokémon was a Ralts that Ruby loaned him, and a Kecleon he caught himself. His "starter" Pokémon was a Treecko which he rescued after Professor Birch lost it in a flood.

Wally asked Norman to teach him about Pokémon and help him catch one, but Norman refused after seeing how sickly Wally was.

Ruby seemed to take quickly to Wally, possibly because Norman DIDN'T like Wally, and decided to help the other boy. Ruby loaned Wally his Ralts, nicknamed "Ruru", and Wally was able to capture a Kecleon.

Unfortunately, before Ruru could be returned to her rightful owner, an earthquake caused Ruby to fall into the sea.

The next time we see Wally, he is rescuing the old man who looks for Mirage Island in Pacifidlog Town, from Kyogre's flood. It would seem that Wally had managed to recover much from his illness by then, and had been traveling around Hoenn for quite some time.

Norman, who had just been passing by, finally agreed to take Wally on as a student, and told him to come to the Sky Pillar.

There, Norman revealed that what he had been training Ruby for since he was very young was to help Norman awaken Rayquaza. Norman could only accomplish this with someone the size of a 10-year old boy.

Even though he's healthier, Wally wears a suit with a respirator built into it.

Wally acquired his Cacnea while traveling through the desert, his Roselia on Route 117, and Norman gave him his Flygon. Most of this occurred off-panel.

Wally was once believed to be a representation of Emerald because of his all-green team and mainly green wardrobe. However, he's not a Pokédex Holder and he debuted long before announcement of Pokémon Emerald, which means he was never to be intended to be Emerald representation. Due to that, a new character was created for that role.

In the TCG

Wally appears on the Supporter card "Wally's Training", which allows a player to search his or her deck for a card that evolves from his or her Active Pokémon, and evolve that Pokémon. This allows one to get around the rule of not being able to evolve a Pokémon on the first turn or the turn the Pokémon is played; however, the player who goes first is no longer allowed to play Supporters on the first turn, so it won't be any help in that circumstance. This card appears in EX Sandstorm and EX Emerald.
