Drake (Japanese: ユウジ Yuuji) is the leader of the Orange Crew and accepts challenges from Pokémon trainers who manage to obtain four Gym Badges from Gym Leaders in the Orange Islands.



Season 2: Adventures on the Orange Islands

Drake, as the head gym leader in the Orange Islands, is the one trainers go up against once they've obtained four Gym Badges in the Orange Islands Pokemon League. If a trainer beats him, they and their pokemon get put in the Orange Island Hall of Fame.

Until Ash came along and beat Drake, the latter was starting to become rather bored on Pummelo Island, because Drake hadn't battled a decent trainer in a really long time, and thus no one has beaten him in a Pokémon Battle for a while. Drake wondered if anyone could actually beat him and his prized Pokémon, Dragonite.

After Ash had won the battle against Drake, he called out all of his Pokémon that participated in the battle on the stage as Drake presented him with the Winner's Trophy. Afterwards, Ash, Pikachu, Tauros, Lapras, Squirtle, Bulbasaur and Charizard all had their handprints set in stone to be remembered in the Orange Island Hall of Fame.

Pokémon Information
Drake Ditto anime
Ditto was the first Pokémon he uses in his battles. It will make a copy of any Pokémon that's used first so his opponents get clumsy and make mistakes, ultimately costing them a victory. The latest Pokémon that was the victim of the copycat was Ash's Pikachu; unfortunately it was no match for the real deal.
Pokémon Information
Drake Onix
Onix was the second Pokémon that Drake used in his battle with Ash. It was a powerhouse but was absolutely no match for Ash's Squirtle, who beat it with the newly learned Hydro Pump.
Pokémon Information
Drake Gengar
Gengar was Drake's third Pokémon, and a tricky one at that. It went up against Tauros when Ash tried some beginners luck. However Gengar was proven too powerful when it used Confuse Ray to confuse Tauros. It then went up against Ash's Lapras which resulted in a double knockout.
Pokémon Information
Drake Venusaur
Venusaur was the fourth Pokémon that Drake used in his battle with Ash, who used Tauros against it. Though powerful it was no match for the mighty steer.
Pokémon Information
Drake Electabuzz
Electabuzz was the fifth Pokémon that Drake used to battle Ash, and was used to defeat his Bulbasaur. It then faced off against Charizard, who was able to defeat Electabuzz with a Seismic Toss attack.
Pokémon Information
Drake Dragonite anime
Dragonite was Drake's last and most formidable Pokémon within his team, and faced off against Squirtle, Tauros and his Charizard, all of whom were unable to defeat it. After Team Rocket's untimely arrival on the battlefield, resulting in them getting blasted off once more, Dragonite was defeated by a surprise Thunderbolt attack from Pikachu.
