The Pokémon hunters

The Pokémon hunters (Japanese: ポケモンハンター Pokémon hunters) are characters of the day who appeared in JN053. They capture Pokémon for their boss.

In the anime

They first had their Pokémon poison a lake in order to lure out a Suicune. Ash and Goh encountered the Pokémon hunters and tried to stop them when Suicune appeared. The hunters had their Pokémon attack Suicune, injuring and poisoning it. They then tied it up, only for Goh to throw a Poké Ball at Suicune, allowing him to catch it. Goh proceeded to run away with Suicune as the hunters battled Ash.

After overcoming Ash, the hunters continued their search for Goh and Suicune and soon found them. They were able to catch Suicune, only for it to break free from their net and freeze them, allowing them to be arrested by Officer Jenny.
