Background

Gary's appearance in the Best Wishes series.

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.
