(Japanese: コテツ Kotetsu) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime who first appeared in BW093.
Kotetsu first appeared as Ash, Iris, Cilan, and Dawn were leaving the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup. He had meant to compete, but arrived too late.
He later appeared as the group was seeing Dawn off. He announced he was going to take part in the Unova League, but he was missing his eighth Badge because he thought that only seven Badges were required to enter. He also mistakenly thought the league was going to be in Ecruteak City in Johto.
In the next episode, Kotetsu challenged Marlon to a Gym Battle for a Wave Badge. He used his Ferrothorn and Samurott to battle Marlon's Jellicent and Mantine. Ultimately, Kotetsu and his Pokémon were able to come through with the win against Marlon and his Pokémon in order to get the last badge necessary for Kotetsu to compete in the Unova League.
