of the Pokémon anime
who appeared in The Punchy Pokémon
In the episode, he was training his Hitmonchan to compete in the P1 Grand Prix. He was so determined to train and win, that he was neglecting his family. His daughter, Rebecca, convinced Ash and Brock to compete in the P1 Grand Prix to defeat him.
Ash entered using his Primeape. Anthony noticed early on that the ape Pokémon was very strong. Anthony ended up losing in the semi-finals to Team Rocket and the Hitmonlee they had stolen from Giant, another competitor. Eventually, Ash defeated Hitmonlee in the finals and won the P1 Grand Prix. Anthony offered to train Primeape for Ash, and Ash agreed. Neither Anthony nor Primeape have been seen since that episode.
This is a listing of Anthony's known Pokémon:

In the P1 Grand Prix, Hitmonchan defeated a Machamp before being defeated by Giant's Hitmonlee under Jessie's ownership when his foot got stuck in glue Meowth put on the stage.
