Wylie (Japanese: おじいさん Grampa) is one of the characters of the day in An Appetite for Battle!.

As Wylie came home, just having won a battle tournament at a festival, he was challenged to a battle by his wife Carrie to settle quarrel they had earlier. Not having a lot of confidence in Carrie's battling skills, he accepted the battle. For the battle, Wylie chose to battle with his Delphox, while Carrie chose to battle with a Chespin she had found sleeping on their doorstep earlier.

During the battle, Delphox had no trouble with Chespin, due to the type advantage but also because Chespin had eaten too much of Carrie's macarons earlier. Just as Delphox's Flamethrower was about to hit Chespin, Clemont jumped in front of it. Wylie quickly ordered Delphox to stop its attack. Clemont then explained how the Chespin actually belonged to him and that it had ran off. Wylie now concluded he had won the battle, since Chespin wasn't officially Carrie's Pokémon, but Chespin still wanted to continue battling. Clemont then asked Carrie if he could take over the battle with Wylie, to which she agreed.

By constantly rolling and evading Delphox's attacks, Chespin became fitter and lost the weight it had gained from eating macarons earlier. It was now able to keep up with Delphox, although another Flamethrower from Delphox hurt it badly. Right at that moment, Chespin's Ability Overgrow activated and with this new power it managed to hit Delphox hard. Just as Wylie ordered Delphox to use Mystical Fire, Wylie fell down due to back problems. The battle was then called off and it was declared a draw.

Inside their house, Wylie explained what had caused the quarrel between him and Carrie in the first place: Wylie had made comments to Carrie how he wanted her to lose some weight. This offended her, and she had taken away his dinner. To make up for his comments, Wylie had bought a cake. Accepting his apologies, Carrie proposed to Ash and his friends to eat the cake together. Wylie and Carrie then said their farewells to the group as they continued on their way.

Wylie's Delphox
Delphox is Wylie's only known Pokémon. It was sent out to battle Chespin in a battle to settle a quarrel with Carrie. Initially, Delphox clearly had the advantage in the battle, due to the type advantage, but also due to Chespin having eaten too many of Carrie's macarons before. Just as Delphox was about to hit Chespin with Flamethrower, Clemont jumped in front. As Clemont explained to Carrie the Chespin was actually his, the battle resumed with Clemont battling instead of Carrie.

Clemont was able to reduce the weight Chespin had gained from eating too much macarons by dodging Delphox's attack with rolling. Chespin was now able to keep up with Delphox, although it was badly hurt by one of its Flamethrowers. At that moment, Chespin's Ability Overgrow activated, and Chespin gained the upper hand, hitting Delphox hard with its strengthened attacks. Wylie then intended to order Delphox to use Mystical Fire, but right as Delphox was about to execute the move, Wylie fell to the ground due to hurting his back. The battle was then called off and was declared a draw.

Delphox's known moves are Will-O-Wisp, Flamethrower and Mystical Fire*.
