Matt

Matt (Japanese: マイク Mike) is the character of the day in Pinch Healing.

Matt is a Pokésitter. He was transporting Pokémon by bus when an Electrode fell on it and caused him to have an accident. He called the local Pokémon Center where the Nurse Joy in charge happened to be sick. Ash, his friends and Scott came by to tow the bus. They were about to leave when all of a sudden, a Bagon Matt was looking after went chasing after a Butterfree.

With the help of Ash, he was able to get Bagon back. But after the ordeal, Bagon fainted in Matt's arms and that's when he discovered that it had a terrible fever. They rushed it to the Pokémon Center as quick as possible.

At the Pokémon Center Matt couldn't help but feel guilty about Bagon. He felt he had a responsibility to care of the Pokémon Trainers had left with him. During this time, two people come into the Pokémon Center claiming to be workers from the Pokémon Day Care center that Matt works at. They gather up all the Pokémon and put them in a box. Matt doesn't believe them and confronts them about it but then a smoke screen fires from the box. They take off and its soon revealed that they are Team Rocket.

As they were getting away in their balloon, Ash almost commands Pikachu to use Thunderbolt but stops when he realizes that it can hurt the Pokémon Team Rocket stole. May then remembers that the Larvitar they stole has a powerful Sandstorm attack and asks it to use it. It does and Team Rocket's balloon crashes. Ash takes care of it from there and Team Rocket is defeated.

They are then approached by Brock who comes to tell Matt that Bagon's fever has broken. He is greatly relieved to hear this. The next day, Scott manages to repair Matt's bus and he is able to return the Pokémon back to their Trainers.
