Malachi and his carrier Pidgey

Malachi (Japanese: ワタリ Watari) is a character of the day in the Pokémon anime who appeared in Carrying On!.

He and his grandfather, Denjirō, have multiple Pidgey that act as carrier pigeons. He befriended Ash, Misty and Brock after they brought back one of their Pidgey named Ken, although he initially accused them of hurting Ken after seeing the bandage on its wings. He is very fond of his grandfather's Pidgey and longs to be in charge of the Pidgey Express business after his grandfather's retirement. The business uses the abilities of the Pidgey in order to send packages and newspapers to the nearby islands without ferry service. The Pidgey were the target of a Team Rocket heist, literally being plucked from the sky. Ash, Misty, Brock and Malachi then rode on their special flying device, some sort of blimp used by his grandfather for training the Pidgey, to recover all of the Pidgey that Team Rocket had stolen. With the help of Ash's Noctowl, they were able to free the Pidgey and sent Team Rocket blasting off.


Cares for

Ken (Japanese: ケン Ken) is one of the many carrier Pidgey that Malachi and his grandfather own. They are used in the Pidgey Express business to send packages and newspapers around the Whirl Islands. Ken is distinct from the Express's other Pidgey because of the tiny hat it wears. It was first seen when a wild Fearow was pecking it and injuring it. Ash's Noctowl stepped in and scared off the Fearow. Ken plummeted to the ground, but eventually became friends with Noctowl. Brock bandaged the tiny Pidgey's wings and along with Ash and Misty found Malachi. He took them to Malachi's grandfather's house where Ken was then fully healed.

None of Ken's moves are known.
