Teaque (Japanese: タイド Tide) is a character of the day who appeared in Cilan and the Case of the Purrloin Witness!.
Teaque participated in the Marine Cup Tournament held on a Decolore cruise ship, and was Iris's opponent in the first round. He used his Vanillite and battled against Axew. Using Double Team to evade Axew's Scratch and Dragon Rage, Vanillite easily defeated him with an Ice Beam. He and Vanillite then managed to defeat a Trainer's Amoonguss, making it to the final round, where he was set to battle against Ash.
During his battle with Ash, he commanded his Galvantula to use Thunderbolt against Pikachu's own Thunderbolt. Suddenly, Galvantula directed both bolts to the ship's source of electricity, causing a power outage. At that point, Cilan noted something strange about Teaque. After the power was restored, he continued the battle using Signal Beam, but his Galvantula was quickly defeated by Iron Tail. When the battle finished, Teaque was strangely attacked by Mrs. Ripple's Purrloin, who was then forcefully stopped by Ash.
After that, Teaque helped investigate the theft of a jewel called the "Eye of Liepard", since Purrloin insisted on Cilan to ask him, even if the prime suspect was Mr. Shaw, who was in the room where and when the crime happened. Noticing how angry was Purrloin at him, he barely opened the door, claiming that he never heard about the jewel since he was focused on the tournament, closing the door while asking Ash to let him rest.
After Cilan asked for it, Porter kindly invited Teaque to the deck of the ship along with other people involved in the investigation. Here, Cilan summarized the events, and concluded that Teaque's Vanillite followed Purrloin to Mrs. Ripple's room through the ventilation system, where it used its Ice Beam to form an ice block with the shape of the key that opened the suitcase where the Eye of Liepard was kept. This proved why there was some melted ice on the floor besides the suitcase after the events, and why Purrloin suspected on him, since it was in an adjacent room when the thievery was done. An angry Teaque said that it was impossible, since he was participating in the tournament at the time, to which Cilan answered that Vanillite stole the jewel while Teaque's Galvantula caused the power outage, this all being part of his plan.
Teaque ultimately confessed it was him who stole the jewel. In order to escape, he called out his Vanillite and tried to attack the whole group with Blizzard, but failed to do so when an International Police agent named Tedesco arrived on the scene and had his Growlithe defeat Vanillite with Fire Fang. Mrs. Ripple's Purrloin took away the Eye of Liepard from him and jumped on his face, revealing that he was wearing a disguise. The agent said that Teaque was actually a hunted criminal and he was following him on the ship. Teaque was then assumed to be arrested off-screen.
