Biography

Games

Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald

In Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald games, Norman is the protagonist's father. During the game, he appears on TV at the beginning of the player's adventure, and is mentioned by his good friend Professor Birch in conversation when the player first meets Birch. It is also Norman who lends Wally the Zigzagoon he uses to catch his first Pokémon, Ralts. Norman then wishes to battle the player, only that he/she must get the first four Hoenn badges first.

Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Norman has the same role as he had in the first Generation III games, Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. His gym is renovated and Norman has a different artwork when battling Norman for the gym badge.

In the anime, he is the father of May and Max, and the husband of Caroline. Ash had his gym battle with Norman in Balance of Power after defeating the first four gym leaders. Using his Grovyle, Pikachu, and Torkoal, Ash defeated Norman's Pokémon, much to Max's dismay. Max stole the Balance Badge and locked himself up in Norman's greenhouse. Norman was able to get Max under control and Max gave Ash his Balance Badge.
