Skyler
This article is about the Johto character of the day. For character from Spell of the Unown, see Schuyler.

Skyler (Japanese: トビオ Tobio) is a character of the day in the Pokémon anime. He appeared in The Big Balloon Blow-Up. His dream is to become a professional hot air balloon pilot.

He convinced Ash and his friends, whom he just met, to participate in a Pokémon Balloon Race. His father, Tenma, lent Ash and friends a Pikachu shaped balloon. During the course of the race, Team Rocket sabotaged many of the competition's balloons and then cheated by using a rocket launcher on Ash's Noctowl and Pikachu. Skyler used his Fearow's Drill Peck to destroy Team's Rocket rocket launcher and save Ash's Pokémon.

He tied for first place with Ash; they both won the first place prize, a hot air balloon engine. However, Ash fully passed the prize onto Skyler to help fulfill his dreams of becoming a professional hot air balloon pilot.

Skyler's Fearow
Fearow
Skyler's Fearow is Skyler's strongest Pokémon and helps to pull his Fearow Balloon. It first appeared training with its owner for the Pokémon Balloon Race and scared Ash and his friends, with them thinking Skyler and Fearow were Team Rocket. Skyler introduced himself and Fearow helped with Ash's Noctowl to pull the balloons. The day of the race came during the race, Team Rocket sabotaged the balloons. Suddenly, a huge storm whipped up. Skyler and Ash and his friends were able to get out, but Team Rocket caused more havoc. Fearow helped to sent Team Rocket blasting off and came joint first with Ash and his friends.

Fearow's only known move is Drill Peck.
