This article is about the Johto character of the day. For character from Spell of the Unown, see Schuyler.

Skyler (Japanese: トビオ Tobio) is a character of the day in the Pokémon anime. He first appeared in The Big Balloon Blow-Up. His dream is to become a professional hot air balloon pilot.

He convinced Ash and his friends to participate in the Hot Air Balloon Race. His father, Tenma, lent Ash and friends a Pikachu shaped balloon. During the course of the race Team Rocket had sabotaged many of the competition's balloons and then cheated by using a rocket launcher on Ash's Noctowl and Pikachu. Skyler used his Fearow's Drill Peck to destroy Team's Rocket rocket launcher and save Ash's Pokémon.

He tied for first place with Ash; they won the first place prize, a hot air balloon engine. However, Ash gave it to Skyler to help fulfill his dreams of becoming a professional hot air balloon pilot.
