The captain is an unnamed character of the day in the Pokémon anime who appeared in the episode Hoenn Alone!. He works on a boat which travels from the Seafoam Islands to Littleroot Town.
He's very kind, and likes to get involved in his job, helping passengers on his boat with any problems they have—even to the extent of battling Team Rocket for Ash with his Machoke in the food store of his ship when Pikachu, his only Pokémon at the time, was stolen.
After a tank at the bottom of the ship broke, he was forced to stay behind to fix it while Ash went off with Officer Jenny to get Pikachu back. He promised to have it fixed by nightfall, and warned that if Ash wasn't back by then they'd have to leave without him.
He was crestfallen when it appeared Ash could not make it back in time, but was pleased when Ash made it just in time. The captain has not appeared since.
| Machoke is the captain's only known Pokémon. The captain uses his Machoke to help passengers on his boat with any problems they have. It follows him everywhere on the ship. The captain also used it to battle against Jessie's Arbok and James's Weezing. It was nearly defeated, until Arbok's Acid melted a hole to the ship's water storage tank, and everybody was flushed away by the flow. Machoke then helped its owner to climb out of the water.
None of Machoke's moves are known.
