From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Carlton (Japanese: カクト Cacto) is a character of the day who appeared in Searching for a Wish!. He is the father of Gemma.
When the valley he lived at on Capacia Island became a dry land with no vegetation, he became very depressed and left his wife Lotus and his daughter Gemma. He returned, however, when Gemma was faced with a weak Jirachi, which she had been searching for throughout the entire episode in an effort to restore the valley. Carlton instructed her to put it at its resting place so it could heal. When it did and restored the valley in the process, he reunited with Lotus.
