Gengar's former Trainer (right)
Gengar's former Trainer (Japanese: トレーナー Trainer) is a character of the day who appeared in A Chilling Curse!. He once owned a Gengar that Ash would eventually catch.
Three years ago, after growing tired of losing battles and failing to catch other Pokémon, he believed Gengar was responsible for this streak of failures. As a result, he released Gengar, telling it he would return to pick it up. Gengar obediently waited for his return, even as the location was converted into the Cerise Laboratory over the course of three years.
In the present day, Ash bumped into him and his girlfriend, and he began bragging about how he released Gengar. He was then attacked by Gengar, who had been hidden in Ash's shadow without his knowledge. Once the Trainer fled, Gengar fled as well.
