Archy (Japanese: ウインぴょん Winpyon), known as Arckee in Chuang Yi's translations, is an Arcanine owned by Crystal in the Pokémon Adventures manga.


Archy was first caught at Mt. Mortar when Crystal was training to become a capture pro. It is there where Archy was first seen as a wild Pokémon out of control. He was enraged by an eye injury and went on a rampage. Due to this, Crystal fell and broke her arms. Later when she awoke wild Pokémon helped make splints for her. She then saw it again and noticed his eye, and had Parasee that helped nurse her arms nurse his eye back to health. Noticing that he was not naturally aggressive, Crystal decided to add him to her team. While this incident is behind him and Crystal's other Pokémon trust him even though he badly beat them up, he still has bad eyesight from the right side. Since then he has proved to be a strong battler though he is mainly used for land transportation. However, when Crystal went back to Mt. Mortar to retrieve her lost skills the initial culprit was revealed to be a Larvitar, who exploited Archy's eyesight to defeat him even though he was far stronger than Larvitar.

  • Archy is the only one of Crystal's Pokémon whose nickname does not end with 'ee'. However, it was known as "Arckee" in Chuang Yi's translations, which corresponds with the naming pattern.
