As Ampharos  ???

Amphy (Japanese: アカリ Akari) is an Ampharos that illuminates the Glitter Lighthouse in Olivine City. Its Trainer is apparently Jasmine; however, it does not appear to be an active member of her party. It has also made appearances in the anime and manga series.

In the games

Amphy is at the top of Olivine's Glitter Lighthouse. However, it is sick when the player first arrives in Olivine City in the Generation II and IV games. After climbing the Lighthouse, Jasmine asks the player to travel across the sea to Cianwood City, to get the SecretPotion that will cure Amphy. After Amphy is cured, Jasmine may be battled in the Olivine Gym.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Trainers' walking Pokémon often react to Amphy's condition. While all Pokémon may greet Amphy or want to play with Amphy, any other Ampharos brought to the Lighthouse will "sparkle in concert" with it. Male Ampharos may occasionally act interested in Amphy.

In the anime

History

In the English dub of the anime, Amphy's name was changed to Sparkle. It became ill shortly before Ash challenged Jasmine for the Mineral Badge in Fight for the Light!. He, his friends and Janina traveled to Cianwood City to buy the medicine for Sparkle. Like in the games, Jasmine would not take challengers until Sparkle was healed. While Janina went back to Olivine City, Ash and his friends traveled through the Whirl Islands.

Sparkle as seen in Lyra's presentation

On the way back to Olivine in Throwing in the Noctowl, the plane flown by Wings Alexander that was carrying Ash and the others in was blown off course. Thanks to Sparkle's flashes of light, Wings was able to get back on course and safely land his plane.

Sparkle made a brief cameo in An Egg Scramble! during Lyra's introduction to Johto.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Amphy in Pokémon Adventures

Amphy appears in Pokémon Adventures, where it is owned by Jasmine. It helped Jasmine by sending a distress signal when Jasmine was trapped in the Tin Tower during an Earthquake caused by Team Rocket. Gold and Silver saw this signal and tried to save the two, but only succeeded in getting Jasmine out of the ground floor on Amphy's back before becoming trapped themselves. Jasmine later awakens, accompanied by some doctors at a refuge camp. Jasmine still recalled the two boys who risked their lives to rescue her, but was almost led to believe it had been her imagination.

Later, in the Gym Leaders' tournament at the Pokémon League, Amphy fights Brock's Kabutops, but is easily beat around by the swift Pokémon, and almost faints.

In the Chuang Yi translation of the manga, Amphy is called Akari, its Japanese name.

In the Pokémon Gold and Silver: The Golden Boys manga

Jasmine's Ampharos in Golden Boys

Ampharos appears in A Spectacular Battle To Save Ampharos where it was not feeling well and Jasmine wanted Gold to go to Cianwood City to get the SecretPotion to heal Ampharos.

Amphy in Pokémon Pocket Monsters

Amphy appears in Light Up The Lighthouse!! where it became sick as it wasn't able to light up the lighthouse in Olivine City. Jasmine had Red go to a pharmacy that contains the SecretPotion in order to heal Amphy. After getting the SecretPotion, Jasmine hears that they lost the SecretPotion on sea but all hope was lost when a ship arrived and there was nothing to light up the lighthouse. However, when Clefairy ate the pills inside, it made him glow up and was able to save the ships from crashing. This act made Amphy feel better. Amphy reappeared in Tyrogue's in Love?! in a flashback when Tyrogue was talking about Jasmine.
