Laxton (Japanese: エンドウ Endō) is a character of the day who appeared in How Are You Gonna Keep 'Em Off of the Farm?. He is a farmer who owns a farm called Laxton Farm.

As a student of Professor Cerise

Laxton is a former student of Professor Cerise and knew Chloe when she was younger. In How Are You Gonna Keep 'Em Off of the Farm?, he sent Professor Cerise a supply of vegetables and wrote about having trouble with a group of Diglett and a Dugtrio ravaging his field.

Laxton was reunited with Chloe when she visited the field alongside Ash and Goh to help deal with the Diglett and Dugtrio. Laxton stopped Goh from attempting to catch his Voltorb and explained the situation to them. They worked hard to save the vegetables from the Diglett and Dugtrio, and Goh eventually came up with a plan to catch them. Goh succeeded in catching a Diglett and the Dugtrio, while the remaining Diglett left.

Upon realizing the ground tilled by Dugtrio was useful for farming, Goh left Dugtrio with Laxton as he, Ash, and Chloe returned to Cerise Laboratory.
