Several wild Pokémon had a recurring role in the Pokémon anime.

Jigglypuff

Jigglypuff
Main article: Jigglypuff (anime)

The first recurring wild Pokémon in the anime, and the one that made the most appearances, is Jigglypuff.

Jigglypuff's first appearance was in The Song of Jigglypuff. At first it couldn't sing, but that changed once Brock gave it a piece of fruit which soothed its throat. Jigglypuff followed the gang throughout their journey until the Advanced Generation series. It set a goal to accomplish what it had failed to in the first episode: to have someone listen to its song in its entirety without falling asleep.

Jigglypuff is perhaps best known, however, for its running gag. Whenever it saw that its song put its listeners to sleep, it would inflate angrily, making a distinctive "honk" sound, then doodle over the faces of its audience with its marker.

Slowking

Slowking
Main article: Slowking (M02)

This talking Slowking lived on Shamouti Island, and was the guardian of the shrine located on the island. He gave Ash advice on where to find the Ice, Thunder and Fire Spheres. He later praised the Team Rocket trio, upset that no-one saw them being heroes, telling them that their heroic actions did not go unnoticed.

As Suicune Masahiko Tanaka

Suicune first appeared in the anime in the episode Don't Touch That 'dile as a form of energy. When Ash, Misty and Brock were lost in a forest, Togepi and Pikachu sensed something and led the trio to a lake. Suicune was standing on a small island in the lake. At first, Ash did not understand what Pokémon it was and wanted to capture it. However, Suicune ran away towards the direction of New Bark Town as soon as Ash made an attempt to battle it. Ash and group chased it to New Bark from where they began their Johto adventure.

Suicune appeared once again in the episode, For Ho-Oh the Bells Toll!. After Team Rocket had removed a Crystal Bell from Ecruteak's Tin Tower, many Bug-type Pokémon invaded the city. They wrapped Jessie, James and Meowth in a web by using String Shot and blocked off the entry to the Tin Tower. The bugs even attacked Ash, Misty, Brock, Morty and Eusine when they wanted to go to the Tin Tower. Suicune appeared, calming down the Pokémon and freeing the Rocket trio as well as the city from the webs of the bugs. Eusine wanted to capture Suicune and sent out his Alakazam to battle it. Alakazam used a Disable, but Suicune easily blocked it with a Mirror Coat. It then used Roar to send Alakazam back into its Poké Ball and fled from the place before Eusine could even react.

Pichu Posse

Pichu Brothers and friends
Main article: Pichu Brothers

The Pichu Brothers were first introduced in the third mini-movie Pikachu & Pichu, where they met Ash's Pikachu who was lost after falling off a nearby building, in which Ash was planning a party celebrating the anniversary of when he and Pikachu first met. Pikachu and the Pichu Brothers went all throughout the town chased by a Houndour who eventually helped them when the local Pokémon Playhouse was collapsing.

They also have a number of friends living in Big Town that regularly take part in their adventures. They have all made appearances in various side story episodes, as well as a cameo at the beginning of Giratina and the Sky Warrior, and the gang have also received their own game for the Pokémon mini, Pichu Bros. mini.

As Wynaut  ??? Kayzie Rogers

Wynaut is a wild Pokémon that followed Ash, his friends, and Team Rocket around in Blackthorn City from Fangs for Nothin' until Why? Why Not!. Even though it followed them everywhere, Jessie's Wobbuffet, Ash's Bayleef and Noctowl were the only ones to see it.

Personality and Characteristics

Wynaut had a tendency to pop up out of nowhere at random moments, especially in it's final appearance Why? Why Not! when it popped out of nowhere and took the case containing Ash's badges (which Team Rocket had stolen from him) away from Wobbuffet who was guarding the case while it's teammates were away. Wobbuffet was very confused and startled to see Wynaut, and panicked even more once Wynaut took the case away just as it's teammates came back. Later on in the episode after the case got open and the badges went all over the place, Ash and his friends as well as Noctowl and Bayleef searched everywhere for the badges. At first they found seven of them, and then Noctowl and Bayleef set out to find the one they had missed, and that's when they saw Wynaut who gave the badge to them, and then Bayleef called to Ash and gave him back his badge and he thanked her and asked her if it had just been lying on the ground. Bayleef tried to explain to her trainer about Wynaut, but it was already gone, causing both Bayleef and Noctowl to become confused, so Wynaut has a tendency to appear out of nowhere when a Pokémon is nearby and then disappear when people come around, showing that there's a possibility Wynaut either doesn't want to be seen by humans, or just likes playing a little joke leaving those who did see it very confused.

Loudred first appeared in A Hole Lotta Trouble where it ran by and stepped on Jessie when she was climbing up to the next floor or Granite Cave. In the next episode Jessie fell on top of it while it was sleeping when she hastily ran to catch whatever was attacking Ash and his friends. Loudred then sent her, James and Meowth flying with an extremely loud Screech attack. It reappeared again in Turning Over a Nuzleaf where it was pinched on the ear by Ash's Corphish. Loudred ran around in pain, screeching, causing the Silcoon to fall from May's arms and roll off, separating it and the other Pokémon that went to its rescue to become separated from their Trainers. Loudred's last appearance was in A Three Team Scheme! where Professor Birch fell from a Wingull's nest on to it, waking it from its sleep. Loudred screeched at him before leaving.

As Spoink Miyako Itō Rachael Lillis

Spoink first appeared in Pearls are a Spoink's Best Friend. It had lost its pearl, and Ash and his friends were trying to find it. As it turns out, Team Rocket had found it and had traded it to the Magikarp salesman for a Magikarp. After learning this, the kids confronted the salesman and demanded he give back the pearl. Team Rocket also demanded he give them the pearl back as well. In the ensuing battle, Spoink's pearl was returned and Team Rocket was sent blasting off.

It made its second, and final, appearance in Clamperl of Wisdom. Like the previous time, it had lost its pearl. This time, it was lost in the ocean without any way of retrieving it. But the kids learned from a scientist named Isaiah that Spoink's pearls come from Clamperl. Eventually, they found a Clamperl who was willing to give its pearl to Spoink. They said goodbye to Spoink, and it hasn't been seen since that episode.

After losing its pearl, Spoink has a habit of using Psychic to move any round objects (and after a while, even not-so-round objects) on its head, including an angry Electrode, much to the dismay of those around it. It developed a friendship with Ash's Torkoal during its adventures with the group.

A Marill with the ability to Sing appeared in Pikachu's Exploration Club, Pikachu's Ice Adventure, Pikachu's Big Sparking Search, and Pikachu's Big Mysterious Adventure. It seems to be similar to Jigglypuff, as like Jigglypuff, it is also offended as its listeners fall asleep and it inflates itself in anger.

Voice actor Japanese English
As Hippopotas Chie Satō

Hippopotas made his first appearance in Mass Hip-Po-Sis!, where Ash, with the aid of his friends, rescued the Pokémon from being trapped upon a high ledge. It was then discovered that Hippopotas was lost and he was separated from the rest of the Hippopotas and Hippowdon. Ash and friends helped Hippopotas find his way back to the herd. Like a few other Pokémon, Hippopotas seemed to like to be carried on top of Ash's head.

Jessie had trouble saying the Pokémon's species name; she and her Team Rocket fellows attempted to steal Hippopotas for their boss.

Hippopotas's final appearance was in Sleight of Sand! with his father Hippowdon. In this episode, Butch and Cassidy also wanted to kidnap the Hippo Pokémon.

Personality and Characteristics

Hippopotas was shown to be extremely friendly and trusting of Ash and his friends when he first appeared in Mass Hip-Po-Sis, and the reason is because Ash saved Hippopotas when he was stuck on the ledge of a cliff and then gave Hippopotas some food that he had been trying to reach. After Hippopotas was safe and full Ash and his friends continued on, but stopped when they noticed Hippopotas had been following them, and both Brock and Dawn noticed Hippopotas had taken a liking to Ash. In Hippopotas' next appearance Sleight of Sand Hippopotas met up with Ash and his friends once again after getting separated from his friend Hippowdon and he was really sad showing that Hippopotas loves hanging out with his friends.

Trivia

  • Hippopotas's tendency to use Yawn seems to mirror Jigglypuff's love for singing.
  • Although Hippopotas weighs 109.1 pounds in the games, Ash has no problem carrying him. This is an example of anime physics.

Meloetta

Meloetta
