Jeremy in his rocker outfit

Jeremy (Japanese: オガタ Ogata) is a minor recurring character who first appeared in Weekend Warrior. He is a businessman who was a traveling rocker in his youth. Before that, he was a Pokémon Trainer, but he was forced to quit when he formed his band since he became busy.

He had a lifelong dream of entering a Pokémon Contest. He donned his rocker persona again, and entered the Silver Town Contest. He used his Butterfree during the Appeals Round, where it used a combination of Stun Spore, Poison Powder, and Safeguard. His wife Mandy and son Nicholas interrupted his appeal to convince him to give up his dream and come home. Jeremy replied with a speech about how he and his Pokémon spent countless hours training to achieve their dream and what it means to be a Pokémon Coordinator. After this speech, the judges, audience members, and May cheered him on to continue competing. After seeing what this dream means to him, his family let him finish his run in the Silver Contest.

Jeremy and his Venusaur, who was usually sleeping according to Nicholas, ended up battling against May and her Combusken in the final round. Venusaur launched its powerful Frenzy Plant attacks, but in the end, May won the Ribbon.

Jeremy briefly reappeared in Thinning the Hoard!, where he was seen watching the Kanto Grand Festival at home with his wife and son.
