His deck is based around using only powerful Fighting types. He also uses Pluspower to boost his damage done, and Defender to deter opponent damage. Gust of Wind cards are also utilized to switch healthy opponents with more damaged ones. The best strategy is to use Psychic types like Gastly and its evolution, and Flying type in the deck. They'll resist damage, and the Ghosts will deal a majority of the damage.

In Pokémon Card GB2

At the start of the game, Mitch was kidnapped by Team Great Rocket and later imprisoned in the GR Fighting Fort.

When the player defeats Gōda and frees him at the Fighting Fort, he will award the player with a Cool Porygon.

Afterwards, he will be available for battles anytime with his deck and gives out two Sky Flying Pokémon packs when defeating him.
