Mr. Verich

Mr. Verich (Japanese: メチャリッチ Mecharich) is a character in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness.

In the games

Mr. Verich first appears at Gateon Port, where he stops a Thug by the name of Zook who is pushing around the player and his sister Jovi. After having one of his bodyguards, Ardos, defeat him in battle, Verich chastises Zook for his actions and leaves. He can then be found at The Krabby Club, where he provides free food and drink to the patrons.

After the player shuts down the Cipher Key Lair and defeats Gorigan, Mr. Verich disappears, much to the dismay of the residents of Gateon Port.


  • Before Ardos battles Zook
"That's quite enough of that."
"Pokémon aren't meant to be used in such a manner. Choose your place and time."
  • After Ardos defeats Zook
"No, no. That won't be necessary. He won't come back. Leave him be."
"Let us be on our way."
"Hohoho. That hardly deserves such gratitude, my little lady."
"We only did what had to be done. Nothing more."
"Oh, my, my. I haven't seen you for a while. I understand that you were quite the hero in Phenac City. Very impressive of you. Hohoho."


  • Verich's name is a pun on the phrase "very rich". His Japanese name is likewise a combination of "mecha" (very, a lot) and "rich".
