Robert (Japanese: ロバート Robert) is a recurring character of the Pokémon anime. He is a Pokémon Coordinator from Silver Rock Isle who first appeared in Win, Lose or Drew!.


Robert's first appearance was in Win, Lose or Drew!, where he was seen competing in the Slateport City Pokémon Contest. He defeated Drew with his Milotic and won that city's Ribbon.

The next time Robert appeared was during the Hoenn Grand Festival. In Deceit and Assist, he was seen using his Milotic in the Appeals Round. In the following episode, Rhapsody in Drew, he nearly became a victim of Team Rocket when they tried to steal his Contest Pass and his Pokémon.

Ash tried to stop them using his Snorunt, but it couldn't get its Ice Beam to work. Robert took Snorunt aside and told it to concentrate more. Snorunt did, and thanks in part to Robert's pep talk, it evolved into Glalie.

Robert then proceeded to the finals of the Hoenn Grand Festival, which he won, earning the Ribbon Cup as well as the title of Top Coordinator. According to Drew, immediately after he won, he began training for the next Grand Festival.
