(Japanese: タップ Tapp) is a minor character in Arceus and the Jewel of Life.

History

Tapp lived in the ancient past and served Marcus at the temple in Michina Town. He was employed as a security guard, and was charged with guarding the cell that Marcus confined Damos to as he prepared his plan to destroy Arceus. Later, Ash, Brock and Dawn were also imprisoned in the cell.

Tapp explained to them their situation, and that one of Marcus's "magical creatures" used Hypnosis on them (Brock later recalling it was his Bronzong). The group ask of the whereabouts of Pikachu, Piplup, and Sheena, and Tapp assures them that they are safe and that Sheena is speaking with Marcus. As the group discover that Damos is in the cell with them, and do not believe his claim of his intention of returning the Jewel of Life to Arceus, Tapp states that he knows for a fact that Damos was intending to return it back, although he adds that he is completely uncertain whether it is the correct action for Damos to take.

Despite being tasked with keeping the prisoners confined, Tapp allowed them to leave when a Spiky-eared Pichu brought the jail cell's keys, Damos subsequently tossing back the keys to Tapp.

Tapp can be seen with the group witnessing the attempted destruction of Arceus by Marcus, although he seems to not be present throughout the group's attempt to thwart Marcus's plan. Tapp reappears during Arceus's departure to regain its strength, seen observing the scene from behind a column.
