Benji's father

Benji's father (Japanese: シロウの父 Shirō's father) is a character of the day in the Pokémon anime who appeared in the episode Mountain Time.

Benji and his father are part of the Mountain Patrol and they use Ledian to help them do their job. To help train these Ledian, Benji's father has a Pidgeotto to simulate the strong winds that occur in the mountains.

Benji's father stopped Team Rocket from running off with Ash's Pikachu and Misty's Togepi. He and his son then teamed up and used both of their Ledian to save Pikachu and Togepi. After Pikachu and Togepi were saved, night fell and the first stars began to appear in the sky. Benji's Ledian's spots then started to glow. Seeing this, Benji's father promoted Benji to "Officer of the Mountain Patrol" because of it.

Benji's father's Ledian
Benji's father trains Ledian for mountain patrol, helping people stranded in the mountains. It was first seen watching Benji's Ledian, noticeably smaller than this Ledian, training using Benji's father's Pidgeotto. It was then seen as Benji's Ledian's mentor in the cabin. It later sent Team Rocket blasting off with Swift. When night fell, it sprinkled dust everywhere with Benji's Ledian.

Ledian's only known move is Swift.
