Expert stonecutter

The expert stonecutter or master stonecutter is a character of the day in the Pokémon anime who appeared in the episode Bibarel Gnaws Best. He works as a bridgebuilder and a stonecutter, and teaches the Bibarel in the episode how to cut stone. He is known to be very knowledgeable on the subject of stonecutting, and knew the bridge as it currently was would collapse just by looking at the blueprint. He also managed to improve Bibarel's skill in stonecutting at least tenfold, and Bibarel is very loyal to him.

The expert stonecutter's role in the episode was to teach Bibarel how to cut stone, and come in at the last minute to fix the bridge and finish everything on schedule.

Bibarel
Bibarel is a Pokémon owned by the expert stonecutter and the star of Bibarel Gnaws Best!.

After its Trainer left because he had worn out his back, Bibarel had refused to do any more work. Brock tried to encourage it to work by mixing up some food, but Bibarel still refused to work. Then, Ash and Brock sent out Chimchar, Turtwig, Buizel and Sudowoodo and used their moves to cut the stone. Unfortunately, they weren't the right dimensions.

Then, just as Bibarel started to get angry, Team Rocket appeared. They captured the worker's Machoke and Machamp, and then Bibarel. But Bibarel used its strong front teeth to chew right through the cage bars, but after it was freed, it still refused to work.

When the head engineer arrived and put his Rhydon to work, Bibarel attacked. It didn't want to let the engineer's Pokémon touch the stone quarry. Then, the expert stonecutter appeared, scaring off the engineer and Bibarel and the gang got right to work, and finally finished the bridge on time.

Bibarel's known moves are Super Fang and Hyper Fang.
