Almond (Japanese: アーモンド Almond) is a main character in the manga series Magical Pokémon Journey. He is a Pokémon Trainer, although he is not shown actually using or capturing any Pokémon.

Almond is the main love interest of Hazel and Coconut. Hazel's interest in Almond is the basis of the plot - Hazel seeks a love potion from Grandpa so that Almond will finally fall in love with her.

Despite the fact that Hazel and Coconut's rivalry over Almond is the focus of the story, he seems aloof to them and annoyed by their attempts to win him over. He expresses annoyance in particular that they are constantly distracting him from his Pokémon Trainer's journey, preventing him from capturing many Pokémon. However, he is also seen participating in events with the rest of the group, such as in Even an Arbok Falls in Love!, where he helped the others build Arbok a statue of roses to give to Wigglytuff.

Almond is close to Squirtle, who admires him deeply. Squirtle sees Almond as "big brother I never had".
