Orson

Orson (Japanese: オルニス Ornis) is a character of the day from A Relay in the Sky!.

Orson was first shown training for the Pokémon Sky Relay the day before the competition. According to Ornithol, he had won the competition last year and was striving to retain his title as its winner. He entered with his male Starly, Staravia, and Staraptor. During the competition, he had his Pokémon stay mostly in second position.

In the third leg, only Orson and his Starly and Ash and his Noibat were in the running to become the winner. The Pokémon passed through a valley with strong wind currents, and while Noibat was blown away, Orson and Starly were shown to be prepared for this. Orson had Starly fold his wings, so that he could nosedive through the valley. Noibat was able to recover to however, and a head-to-head race to the finish unfolded between it and Starly. Starly was ultimately victorious as he finished by a noselength, giving Orson the win.

Orson's Starly
Starly
Starly is one of Orson's Pokémon.

He was used in the Pokémon Sky Relay. Starly was the third Pokémon to be used by Orson, and took over the ribbon from Orson's Staraptor. He started in second position, right after Ash's Noibat. He stayed in this position, until they flew over a valley with strong wind currents. While Noibat was blown away, Orson and Starly were prepared for this. Orson had Starly fold his wings, and as such he was able to nosedive through the valley. However, Noibat was able to recover itself, and a head-to-head race to the finish unfolded. Starly was ultimately able to win by a noselength, winning Orson the competition.

None of Starly's moves are known.

Staraptor
Staraptor is one of Orson's Pokémon.

He was used in the Pokémon Sky Relay. Staraptor was the second Pokémon to be used by Orson and took over the ribbon from Orson's Staravia. He was able to stay in second position, behind Team R's Pelipper (in reality, this was Meowth controlling a Pelipper mecha). He was unable to keep this up however, as he was held back by strong wind currents and a field of towering rocks. His second position was then quickly taken over by Ash's Hawlucha, who used the rocks to launch itself forward. Staraptor was successfully able to deliver his ribbon to Orson's Starly for the final leg.

None of Staraptor's moves are known.
