From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Ikari (Japanese: イカリ Ikari) is a character of the day who appeared in Smashing with Sketch!.
His nickname is Dragon Rage Ikari (Japanese: ドラゴンのイカリ Ikari the Dragon), because of the draconic vibe he gives off. He is a Pokémon Ping-Pong player and was known for winning the Pokémon Ping-Pong tournament to become Pokémon Ping-Pong champion of Alola year after year. During one such competition, he defeated Ilima in the finals and they formed a rivalry.
In the present day, he took part in another tournament. After he reached the finals, he went up against Ilima once more, but was finally defeated. After his defeat, Ikari and Ilima ended their animosity towards one another, as did their Pokémon.
Ikari has competed in the following Pokémon competitions:
- Ikari's character and signature Poké-Ping Pong move is a reference to the character Ryūichi Kazama from the series Ping Pong.
- Ikari's name literally translates to "anger", which is a reference to his animosity towards Ilima.
