Artist Jack Pollockson

Jack Pollockson (Japanese: キース・バスキア Keith Basquiat) is a character of the day who appeared in The Art of Pokémon. He also appeared in the Ash & Pikachu manga, under the name Kys Vaskia.

In the anime

A Johto resident, Pollockson is a world-renowned abstract artist. He owns three Smeargle, which are the ones that actually paint his art. He had his Smeargle paint a wall in the town of Whitestone. However, the town's residents disagreed with his views on what art is and claimed that he was vandalizing the town. In rebuttal, Pollockson claimed that the Smeargle were just expressing themselves.


Jack Pollockson's Smeargle
Smeargle (×3)
Jack has three Smeargle, with two of the Smeargle having different colored tails. It has been mentioned that a Smeargle's tail color changes depending upon its mood. They were "vandalizing" walls in Whitestone, which the town's residents hated but Jack thought was art. Team Rocket watched this and decided to steal the Smeargle. Later, the Smeargle got angry because of the criticism and painted on everything, making Whitestone's residents even madder. Suddenly, Team Rocket showed up and stole the three Smeargle, but Ash and his friends found them. After blasting of Team Rocket, the Smeargle ran away, but the next day Ash and his friends found out that the Smeargle were cleaning Whitestone instead of painting all over it, making the residents forgive them.

None of Smeargle's moves are known.
