Harrison (Japanese: ハリゾウ Harizō) is a character of the day in the Pokémon anime. He appeared in Dueling Heroes.

Harrison was Misty's first opponent in the quarterfinal rounds of the Whirl Cup Competition. His appearance suggested that he enjoyed fishing and Water Pokémon, as he was wearing a fisherman's hat and had a Hawaiian shirt on.

He was very confident that he and his Qwilfish would defeat Misty. However, the young Gym Leader and her Corsola proved him wrong. At one point, Misty used her Pokémon's Spike Cannon to remove itself from Qwilfish's spikes. Misty then moved on to her second battle against Ash, and Harrison was eliminated from the competition.

Harrison's Qwilfish
Harrison's Qwilfish first appeared in a battle against Misty and her Corsola in the first round of the Whirl Cup. Harrison ordered Qwilfish to use Water Gun which was deflected by Corsola's Mirror Coat. Seeing that this tactic wasn't going to work, Harrison told it to start swallowing water, preparing for a volley of spikes. Misty then told Corsola to use Spike Cannon just as Qwilfish used Pin Missile and the attacks collided hurting Corsola. Qwilfish was not hurt by it, however, as it had quickly dived underwater. It then used Take Down which hit. Worried that Corsola might faint, Misty ordered it to dive underwater and use Recover. However, Qwilfish had already started up another Take Down. By the time Corsola recovered, Qwilfish already zeroed in. Corsola and Qwilfish dove down and Qwilfish reappeared, but so did Corsola, below Qwilfish. Qwilfish was stuck on Corsola's head and couldn't do much about this so it just struggled around. Misty finally got an idea and told Corsola to use Spike Cannon. Corsola fired the Spike Cannon, sending Qwilfish sky-high and fainting it.

It reappeared in a flashback in The Perfect Match!.

Qwilfish's known moves are Water Gun, Pin Missile, and Take Down.

  • His English name seems to be similar to Qwilfish's Japanese name, which is ハリーセン Harysen. His Japanese name is also a reference to his Pokémon: ハリゾウ Harizō contains ハリ hari, which means needle and is also present is Qwilfish's Japanese name.
  • Harrison's Japanese name is a reference to "bari", the word for "hook" and when combined with the Japanese name of the character in the same episode, Christopher, there names make up "fishing hook".
