Ephraim's parents

Ephraim's parents are characters of the day who appeared in The Grass Route. They and their son Ephraim operate a farm of flowers in a small town close to Ecruteak City.

They allowed Ephraim to participate in the 45th annual Grass Tournament, which they attended to cheer him on. Their enthusiasm and gloating to the audience only embarrassed Ephraim, but he was appreciative of their support. The pair were later seen hugging as they watched their son accept the Grass Tournament's victory prizes.

Their flower business is the culmination of enjoying a slow lifestyle and their passion for Grass-type Pokémon, which also maintain their farming operation. Ephraim's parents are both optimists and happy by nature. Ephraim's father was thankful that Ash battled their son, seeing it as an invaluable training lesson. Ephraim's parents also offered to host Ash, Misty, and Brock overnight as thanks.
