Thatcher (Japanese: カズチ Kazuchi) is a minor recurring character from Hoenn who first appeared in A Different Kind of Misty!. He is the brother of Alyssa.

Thatcher and Alyssa operate their village's Lighthouse using a special rock called the light stone. Thatcher's grandfather gave him a Plusle and Minun to help charge the light stone, but Thatcher was unsure of whether or not he could properly train them. Having very little trust and confidence in his Pokémon, all Thatcher could do was cheer for others using his Pokémon's Helping Hand. Ash, whom Thatcher sees as a "hero", helped Thatcher protect the light stone and taught him to believe in his Pokémon.

He reappeared in Cheer Pressure, where he was training with a pep squad with his Plusle and Minun.


Thatcher's Plusle and Minun
Plusle and Minun
Thatcher received Plusle and Minun from his grandfather. They are able to cheer for other Pokémon, revitalizing them with their rejuvenating power. For a while, this is all Thatcher used them for, since he was unsure of how to battle. However, once Ash came along, he learned how to put his full faith in his Pokémon, strengthening their bond. Later, he joined a pep squad with Plusle and Minun reappeared in Cheer Pressure.

Plusle and Minun's known moves are Helping Hand and Spark.
