Dr. Sanzashi

Dr. Sanzashi (Japanese: サンザシ博士 Dr. Sanzashi) is a character in the manga Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us: Zeraora's Story. He is a scientist who lives in Fula City.


Dr. Sanzashi debuted in ESEZ1, where he meets Ash and Margo during Fula City's Wind Festival. He offered to show the two the Mythical Pokémon Zeraora and took them to his pavilion to go see it. Once they arrived, Sanzashi used his virtual reality technology to send Ash and Margo into a simulation of Fula City's past. There, Ash and Margo witness the birth of Zeraora and how it protected wild Pokémon from Pokémon hunters.

In ESEZ2, Sanzashi sent Ash and Margo back into the simulation. However, this time they viewed the events from the perspective of a boy named Nozomu, who Zeraora befriended.
