Gorman (Japanese: アベル Abel) is a character of the day who appeared in Mad About Blue!. He is a Pokémon fanatic obsessed with blue-colored Pokémon from Kalos.

Gorman first appeared when Goh sent out his newly caught Shiny Voltorb. Because of its blue color, Gorman grabbed hold of it, only for Voltorb to use Self-Destruct. After introducing himself to Ash, Goh, and Chloe, he took them to an art gallery which showed pictures of many blue-colored Pokémon. Whilst there, Gorman encountered Bluto, who shared his fascination, which started a rivalry between them. Gorman took them to a café with a theme of blue-colored food, which led to another encountered with Bluto. A third encounter with Bluto occurred when Gorman took the group to the site where a commercial for a blue-colored candy had been filmed. When both fanatics received a notification of a plushie giveaway to celebrate the candy's anniversary, they rushed to the local Poké Mart, but ended up tearing the last available plushie in half while arguing over it.

To settle their differences, Gorman and Bluto blindfolded themselves and sent out two of their Pokémon to see if they could identify each other's Pokémon. Team Rocket interrupted this by capturing Pikachu, Grookey, and Eevee, but Gorman saved them by having his Dewott break the net with its Scalchop. When Team Rocket requested the Rocket Prize Master, Gorman and Bluto ended up scaring Pelipper away. Gorman received another notification on his phone and ran away with Bluto.
