If you were looking for the recurring character and rival to Ash whose name is similar to Alan, see Alain.


Alan (Japanese: アツオ Atsuo) is a character of the day who first appeared in Nosing 'Round the Mountain!.

He met with Ash and his friends while they were passing through Mt. Coronet. His dream was to evolve his Nosepass, so he challenged Ash to a battle in order to level his Nosepass up. After the battle, Nosepass did evolve, but then, Team Rocket used a machine to hypnotize Alan's Probopass. Team Rocket's plan ended up failing and Alan got back his Probopass.

He reappeared in Fantina's flashback in Playing The Leveling Field!, where it was revealed that he challenged Fantina. He lost the first match with his Nosepass but was able to defeat her with his newly evolved Probopass.

Alan's Probopass
Nosepass → Probopass
Probopass is Alan's only Pokémon, having owned it since it was a Nosepass. Alan was determined to grow strong with his Nosepass, but found himself unable to defeat Fantina, the Hearthome Gym Leader. He traveled to Mt. Coronet, knowing that the special magnetic fields the mountain produced could evolve Nosepass into Probopass. While training, he met Ash, and during a battle against Turtwig, Nosepass evolved into Probopass, only for Team Rocket to steal it. However, Alan eventually managed to recover his longtime partner. Afterwards, he returned to Hearthome Gym and defeated Fantina.

It reappeared in Fantina's flashback in Playing The Leveling Field!.

Probopass's known moves are Sandstorm, Zap Cannon, Rock Slide, Tackle, Earth Power, and Magnet Bomb.
