From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Mr. Moore (Japanese: ムラ Mura) is a recurring character who appeared in Poetry Commotion! and Going, Going, Yawn. He is Flannery's grandfather.
In the anime
Mr. Moore is the former Lavaridge Gym Leader and used to be part of the Elite Four. He left the town to write about poetry three days prior to Poetry Commotion!. However, he returned because of his worries that his granddaughter would have a hard time taking on the responsibilities as Gym Leader. He came back disguised three times to the Gym. The first disguise he used was a purple-colored suit with a brown mustache and wig which he used with a pair of binoculars to spy on the Gym's current state from afar. His second disguise consisted of tan shorts and a floral print shirt with a blond wig which he used to help his granddaughter find the Gym's Heat Badges. His third disguise was of a judge sent from the Committee for Popularizing Pokémon Gym Judging, referred to as the CPPGJ for short.
Mr. Moore also officiated the Gym battle between his granddaughter and Ash, and helped defeat Team Rocket when they tried to steal Flannery's Torkoal.
Mr. Moore is a cheery individual with a fiery temperament in battle. He was initially concerned by Flannery's handling of the Lavaridge Gym, though later admitted in Going, Going, Yawn that she had the potential to make a great Gym Leader.
