Ornithol (Japanese: オワゾー Oiseau) is a character of the day who appeared in A Relay in the Sky!.

Ornithol lives in a valley that is the site of the Pokémon Sky Relay. He is an avid fan of the competition, watching it from the stands each year, but was never able to compete himself because he had not been able to catch three Pokémon eligible to enter. Nevertheless, he had a dream to win once, and as such, he decided to support Trainers he thought were promising enough.

Ornithol met up with Ash and his friends when they stumbled across the Pokémon Sky Relay and introduced himself. He inspired Ash to enter the competition and took him and his friends to his house, where he showed what the course of the competition looked like and what would be the obstacles. The next day, he watched Ash compete and win second place. Even though Ash was unable to win, Ornithol expressed his gratitude and happiness to him.


Ornithol's Noctowl
Noctowl is Ornithol's only known Pokémon.

Even though its owner was an avid fan of the Pokémon Sky Relay, it never competed with him in the competition since Ornithol was never able to catch two more eligible Pokémon.

None of Noctowl's moves are known.
