==Liberating the Slowpoke Well==
 
In the [[Johto]] Games, he reveals the protagonist/player (who wants Kurt to make him some Poké Ball from Apricorns) that [[Team Rocket]], which had disbanded after their leader was defeated by [[Red (game)|Red]] (the name of the protagonist that appears in the first Pokémon games) has returned and that they have taken over the nearby [[Slowpoke Well]], where they are cutting off the [[SlowpokeTail|Slowpoke's tails]] which they plan to sell for a high profit. Kurt tells the protagonist/player that he or she will have to wait and runs off to rescue all the [[Slowpoke]] (including his Granddaughter's). He scares off the [[Rocket Grunts|Rocket Grunt]] guarding the entrance to the Slowpoke Well (startled the guard accidentally falls into the well), allowing the player to venture inside.
 
 
===Confronting Team Rocket===
 
Upon entering the well, the protagonist runs into an injure Kurt, who tells the player that he broke his back when he fell into the well after scaring off the grunt. Kurt asks the player to confront Team Rocket in his place. After the Rockets are defeated, Kurt will check on his granddaughter's [[Slowpoke]] (the Slowpoke that's holding [[Mail]] for Kurt's granddaughter from her father/Kurt's son) before thanking the player and taking him/her (and Slowpoke) back to his house.
 
 
===After Saving the Slowpoke===
 
After a brief talk about [[Team Rocket]] and its return, Kurt thanks the player, giving him/her a ''Fast Ball'' (his granddaughter will offer to register Kurt's phone number to the player for saving Slowpoke). Kurt will also offer to take some of the player's Apricorns to create some of his special Poké Balls, telling him/her they will be ready for pickup the next day.
 
 
==Turning Apricorns into Poké Ball==
 
He makes special Poké Balls out of Apricorns given him, one color of Apricorn per day.
 
He also has a WHT Apricorn tree behind his house WHT (which he uses to create "''Fast Balls''").
 
 
"'''Note:'''" ''Lure Balls'' can first be obtained from man who tells you about Kurt in the [[Pokémon Center]] on [[Route 32]].
 
 
===Kurt's Custom Poké Ball===
 
Here is a list of the [[Poké Ball]]s Kurt makes:
 
 
;Fast Ball
 
:Made from a WHT [[Apricorn]]. You can get these from the back of Kurt's house. Good for catch fast Pokémon (such ones that flee quickly like the three legendaries [[Entei]], [[Raikou]], & [[Suicune]], those with a high speed stat, or Pokémon that possess the ability [[Run Away]]).
 
 
;Level Ball
 
:Made from a Red Apricorn. Good for catching Pokémon whose level is less-than-half your Pokémon's level. The greater the difference in levels, the more effective it is.(Enemy is less then the level of us is more good, but if it is less than half or quarters, it'll be the best!)
 
 
;Lure Ball
 
:Made from a BLU Apricorn. Good for catching Pokémon that have been hooked on a fishing rod.
 
 
;Friend Ball
 
:Made from a GRN Apricorn. Makes the captured Pokémon very fond of you (Pokémon caught with it start off with higher friendship). Good for Pokémon that evolve via friendship even though only golbat is only the Pokémon which evolve via friendship can be caught.
 
 
;Moon Ball
 
:Made from a Ylw Apricorn. Good for catching Pokémon that evolve using a [[Moon Stone]] (like [[Clefairy]], [[Jigglypuff]], [[Nidorino]], and [[Nidorina]]) and their pre-Evolutions (like [[Nidoran♂]] & [[Nidoran♀]]).
 
 
;Love Ball
 
:Made from a Pnk Apricorn. Good for catching Pokémon of the same species, but opposite gender of your Pokémon.
 
 
;Heavy Ball
 
:Made from a BLK Apricorn. The heavier the Pokémon, the more effective it is. Good for really heavy Pokémon (like [[Snorlax]], [[Onix]], and [[Steelix]]).

===Games===
:The [[Pokémon Professor]] who happens to be an old friend of Kurt's. There is a picture of him and Kurt on the wall of Kurt's house. Kurt also appears to be a big fan of Professor Oak's Pokémon Talk radio show (as it can always be heard playing on radio in Kurt's house).

In the [[Johto]] Games, he reveals to the protagonist that [[Team Rocket]], which had disbanded after their leader was defeated by [[Red (game)|Red]] has returned and that they have taken over the nearby [[Slowpoke Well]], where they are cutting off the [[SlowpokeTail|Slowpoke's tails]] which they plan to sell for a high profit.

:[[Elite Four]] member and childhood rival of Professor Oak. She is believed to be the "''lady with determined eyes''" (this description fits her personality) who appears along with Professor Oak and Kurt in the picture hanging on Kurt's wall. It is likely that she knew Kurt due to his friendship with Oak, as well as his status as a Poké Ball maker.
