Christopher (Japanese: ツリオ Tsurio) is a character of the day of the Pokémon anime.

Christopher appeared in Dueling Heroes. He was the first of Ash's two opponents in the quarterfinal rounds of the Whirl Cup Competition. He appeared to be an experienced Water Pokémon Trainer, as he had attached his Lure Ball to a fishing rod and released his Kingdra by casting the line.

Despite his efforts, Christopher failed to emerge victorious against Ash and his Totodile. Using Bite, Totodile blocked Kingdra from using a Hydro Pump attack. This caused the water to build up inside its body and it got sent flying. Ash proceeded to move on to his battle with Misty, while Christopher was eliminated from the competition.


Christopher's Kingdra
Christopher's Kingdra first appeared in a battle against Ash and his Totodile in the first battle of the Whirl Cup. Christopher used a fishing rod with Kingdra's Poké Ball on the end to haul Kingdra into the battlefield. Totodile dives underwater when suddenly Kingdra uses Twister which hurts Totodile badly. Kingdra then uses Hydro Pump which Totodile simply walks across and is about to uses Bite when Kingdra dives underwater. Christopher orders Kingdra to use SmokeScreen which fills the water and Kingdra is out of sight. The battle comes to a standstill because it was expected that Ash would have Totodile risk it and jump back in. Fed up, the Trainer tells Kingdra to jump up and try another Hydro Pump. Ash however tells Totodile to use Bite on Kingdra, aiming for the snout. Totodile is successful and plugs up Kingdra's snout causing all the water to hold back. After a while Totodile releases and Kingdra goes flying across and eventually getting knocked out.

Kingdra's known moves are Twister, Water Gun, Hydro Pump and SmokeScreen.
