Egan (Japanese: ヤケイシ Yakeishi) is a character of the day who appeared in Some Like it Hot.

Egan is a Fire-type Trainer, and like Misty, wants to capture and raise only Pokémon of his type of preference. More than anything, he wanted the Magcargo that was blocking the path of Ash and his friends on their path to Blackthorn City. However, the Magcargo was very powerful, and Egan was unable to weaken it to the point of capture.

He gained a rivalry with Misty. Both got into several arguments about whether Fire types or Water types were the best. Eventually, they teamed up and defeated Team Rocket using both of their type-specific skills.

Afterwards, Egan tried once again to capture the Magcargo. This time, he succeeded and gained a new Fire Pokémon. He said goodbye to Ash and the others as they set off to Blackthorn.
