(オーキド・シゲル Shigeru Ōkido)
Gary Oak
General
Gender: Male
Hometown: Pallet Town
Region: Kanto
Family: Professor Oak (Grandfather)
Class: Pokémon Researcher

Pokemon Trainer (formerly)

Friends: Ash

Brock
Dawn
First Appearance: Pokémon - I Choose You!

Yūko Kobayashi (Japanese)

Gary Oak is Professor Oak's grandson and Ash Ketchum's rival in the first few seasons. His Starter Pokémon was a Squirtle that later evolved into a Blastoise.

Appearance

Gary has mahogany hair and black eyes. In the original series, Gary wore a long-sleeved purple shirt, a black necklace, dark blue pants and shoes. In the Advanced Generation series and Diamond and Pearl series, he wears a black collared shirt, pants, a black necklace with a lavender bead instead of the original gold, and sneakers with a dark backpack.

Personality

The day he started out on his Pokémon journey, he came off as an arrogant Trainer, much like his game counterpart, Blue. His chosen starter Pokémon was Squirtle, which was actually the same Pokémon that Ash originally wanted to start with. He even had a group of cheerleaders who cheered him on in all his battles and would go so far as crying whenever he lost. He didn't walk on his journeys like most Trainers did; instead he had his own sporty red convertible with a chauffeur. Gary loved when he got a chance to make fun of Ash by bragging about how far behind Ash was compared to him. He also gave Ash the pet-name of "Ashy-boy" (Japanese: "Satoshi-kun"), which occasionally seems to annoy him. His style of training at this point was to capture many Pokémon and to use the strongest, as a stark contrast to Ash, who focused on developing a bond with his Pokémon.

His arrogance continued overtime during Ash’s journey in Kanto until he challenged the Viridian City Gym Leader, Giovanni, to a Pokémon battle for his final (but not necessary) Badge in The Battle of the Badge where his was brutally defeated by Mewtwo. However, this still didn't change his arrogance. It would take a loss at the Pokémon League way later on against Melissa for him to finally realize that he greatly needed to change himself.

In his few appearances during the Johto saga, he seemed to have become the complete opposite of who he was. He became polite and respectful to others, including Ash.

Biography

Anime

Gary Oak is Ash's rival. He first appeared in Pokemon - I Choose You!, where he left Pallet Town and wanted to become a Pokémon Master before Ash did. In the beginning, Gary claims to be the best of the best and has the typical smug attitude, known by having fangirls and a fanclub to go along, but, as the anime moves forward, he becomes less prideful and arrogant than that of his earlier appearances in the anime.
