Professor Proctor

Professor Proctor (Japanese: モロボシ博士 Dr. Moroboshi) is a character of the day who appeared in Where's Armaldo?.

Professor Proctor lives on Wales Island with his wife, Annie. Together, they research all the Fossil Pokémon in the Hoenn region. Proctor hoped to one day open up their research area on Wales Ialand for everyone to see the Pokémon.

That changed however when one of the Anorith he was looking after evolved into Armaldo and went on a rampage, destroying everything on its way. It didn't calm down until after Proctor saved it from Team Rocket.

After the ordeal, Proctor decided that Wales Island and the Fossil Pokémon would be better off being a secret. He and Annie bid farewell to Ash and his friends and continued to research the Pokémon on Wales Island.


Looked after

Professor Proctor's Armaldo

Professor Proctor's Armaldo
Anorith → Armaldo
Armaldo evolved from the Anorith that was extracted from the Claw Fossil. As soon as that happened, Team Rocket came by and grabbed Armaldo with a net. However, they were unsuccessful in doing so as Armaldo freed itself with Metal Claw and they ended up getting blasted off by Armaldo's Water Gun. After this, Armaldo went on a rampage, destroying some of the parts of the lab in the process, and fleed outside. Professor Proctor, Ash, and his friends tried everything in order to win Armaldo's trust, including having to use May's Beautifly and Brock's Forretress to talk to Armaldo as they are both Bug type. None of their efforts worked. Ash then tried to battle it with his Corphish. During the battle, the professor noted that Armaldo dislikes the nearby fruit on the island and the only fruit it likes are the ones that it ate in ancient times. Armaldo was able to find the fruit which was located at very tip of Wales Island when it was a peninsula. Armaldo then got caught again by Team Rocket and was trapped in their mecha. Professor Proctor went to the mecha and told Armaldo to attack the area that it was pounding on. Armaldo attacked the area with Metal Claw and freed itself. After Team Rocket was blast off once more, Armaldo now trusted Professor Proctor and became friendlier to him.

Armaldo's known moves are Metal Claw, Water Gun, Dig and Rock Blast.
