Ranger Mason

Ranger Mason (Japanese: ムトウ Mutō) is a character of the day who appeared in Mother of All Battles.

Mason is one of the Pokémon Rangers in charge of protecting a Pokémon preserve on Mt. Silver. It is the same preserve where the Pokémon Poacher Brothers kidnapped Ash's Larvitar when it was just an Egg and severely wounded the Tyranitar that was Larvitar's mother.

Mason made it her mission to stop the poachers from hurting any more Pokémon. With the help of Ash and his friends, Mason was able to track down the poachers and capture them once and for all. Larvitar was successfully reunited with its mother. Mason thanked Ash and his friends for taking care of Larvitar and helping her capture the brothers, and they continued their journey to the Silver Conference.

In Tie One On!, Professor Elm called Ash with an update from Ranger Mason, saying Larvitar and its mother were doing well.

Larvitar's mother
Tyranitar is the mother of Larvitar and is protected by Ranger Mason from Pokémon poachers. In Address Unown!, an Unown teleported Ash, Brock, and Misty to a dimension that physically manifested images and experiences from Larvitar's life, and Tyranitar was also featured. She was attacked by the Pokémon Poacher Brothers as they stole Larvitar's Egg from her. She was left with a scar on her chest from the confrontation.

She physically appeared in Mother of All Battles, where she mistook Ash and his friends for poachers and attacked them. The group was able to convince Larvitar to return to its mother, who at first it did not recognize. However the reunion was short-lived as the Pokémon Poacher Brothers returned and captured Tyranitar in a Pokébag capture device. In spite of dangling upside down and being zapped from Team Rocket's balloon, Tyranitar freed herself using Hyper Beam which also destroyed the balloon. She was reunited with Larvitar. Larvitar used Hidden Power and Tyranitar used Hyper Beam to send the Poacher Borthers blasting off. In the end, Ash left Larvitar with its mother and in the safety of the Mt. Silver preserve.

Tyranitar and Larvitar also made a brief appearance in Spurt!.

Tyranitar's only known move is Hyper Beam.
