Pokémon: The Johto Journeys


Still heading for Azalea Town, Ash and co. are attacked by Team Rocket, but look, up in the sky. It's a Golbat. It's a Dragonite, no it's Gligarman! Yes, Gligarman. The greatest superhero that ever existed. Faster than a Pidgeot, more powerful than a Machamp, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound (or fly around them).

Gligarman manages to save Togepi and flies off. Just then, a young girl (who Brock falls for), asks if they saw Gligarman, they say yes and she bikes off. What is the secret behind Gligarman? And will Ash be the Gligarman of the next generation?


  • Mr. Parker/GligarMan
  • Latoya Parker/Gligirl


  • Gligarman is the Pokémon version of Batman.
  • The surname Parker may be an omage to Peter Parker a.k.a. Spider Man.
  • Gligirl is the Pokémon version of Batgirl.
  • Gligarman and Gligirl are the first and second superheroes in the Pokémon anime, the third being the Mighty Accelguard.
