The head engineer

The head engineer is a character of the day in the Pokémon anime who appeared in the episode Bibarel Gnaws Best!. He was only named by his profession. The head engineer served as the main antagonist in the episode.

The head engineer, a corrupt engineer who designed the bridge being built knowing it would collapse, is very impatient, rash, and selfish, and cares more about his reputation as the head engineer than the safety of others.

When Ash and his friends were going to Solaceon Town they encountered the mayor and the head engineer who told Isis that she needed to complete the bridge in time. Afterwards, he walked off, commenting about his reputation. The head engineer returned when he found out that the bridge wasn't completed in time. He became overcome with rage and tried to make it himself with his own Pokémon. He ignored Isis's and Brock's reminder that Bibarel's help is needed to cut the stone quarry in the right shape. As the head engineer refused to listen to them, Bibarel attacked his Rhydon when it used Horn Drill. The head engineer used his Pokémon to beat up Bibarel to quickly get the job done.

The group, seeing what Bibarel was trying to do, battled the head engineer's Pokémon and defeated them. When the head engineer used his digger to dig through the quarry wall, a large rock that came from the expert stonecutter's Machamp knocked the digger over. Seeing that the head engineer was recklessly attacking the quarry, Isis and the expert stonecutter fired him, and the head engineer ran off along with his Pokémon.
