Subway Boss Ingo is a character that first appeared in Pokémon Black and White. He is the boss you battle when challenging the Single Battle line of the Battle Subway. He is Subway Boss Emmet's identical twin brother.


Ingo is extremely tall and very slender (ectomorphic) with pale skin and silver hair with locks shaped like lightning bolts that curve over either side of his face. Despite his silvery hair, Ingo appears young. He has penetrating semi-circular catlike eyes with silver irises. He wears a tall black conductor's cap and a long, high-collared black trench coat with large silver buttons and large cylindrical cuffs on the sleeves; the cuffs have silver trim on either side and have black and brown stripes in the center. His unique trench coat has horizontal brown stripes and vertical silver stripes; this pattern resembles a railroad track when viewed from all sides. Beneath his coat he wears a formal white dress shirt, a blue necktie, black dress pants, and black shoes. He wears white gloves on his hands.


Ingo is a wise and mysterious subway train conductor. He is the elder twin brother of Emmet; thus, he is more serious and stoical by nature. He is seen with a stoical frown on his face, and he seems to be very wise and calm, giving the player advice and encouragement when challenged in the Battle Subway.

In Crisis from the Underground Up!, they met Ash, Iris, and Cilan when the subway system was shut down, and the gang realized that their Pokémon were stolen from the Pokémon Center. Emmet and Ingo decided to help get the Pokémon back. With the help of their Pokémon, Chandelure and Eelekross, they defeated Team Rocket and rescued the gang's Pokémon.

In Lost at the Stamp Rally!, Ingo, Emmet, and the gang reunited Erina and Axew, and then after, the twins had a tag battle with Ash and Cilan, defeating them.
