Monta (Japanese: モンタ Monta) is the main character of the manga series Be a Master!! Pokémon BW.


Monta is a Trainer just starting out on his journey with his starter Pokémon Snivy who aims to be a "Pokémon Battle Master". After successfully capturing a Patrat, he hears a rustle in the grass and goes to look. To his surprise, he finds a Patrat and Watchog and decides to capture them. After he attacks the two Pokémon start to run around in circles, he is about to throw another Poké Ball when Bianca and Cheren appear. Cheren lectures him about what he is doing wrong as Monta is looking up Watchog's Pokédex entry, and he vows one day he will capture a Watchog.

He uses Snivy in a Double Battle with Cheren's Tepig against a Bike Gang King's Braviary, it looks like they were about to lose, but they use a combination attack fainting Braviary. Monta battles Cheren in PBW02 using his Snivy, Panpour and Roggenrola against Cheren's Tepig, Pansage and Basculin. With Cheren's vast knowledge of Pokémon and triple battles, it looked like Cheren could not lose, but was defeated by a powerful Rock Slide from Roggenrola.

In PBW03 he captures an Emolga, suddenly he sees a cave and decides to go inside, he hears a rumble and suddenly a wild Excadrill appears, he sends out Snivy who uses some impressive moves to capture it.

He then sees a Pokémon Ranger and they battle, the Ranger uses his Zebstrika and Swanna against his new Emolga and Snivy. The Ranger is very powerful and Monta has to recall Snivy for Excadrill after Swanna's attack hit hard. The Ranger underestimated him though and Emolga and Excadrill were able to knock out their opponents with one hit.
