Tokichi was the leader of his dojo, who would train students in Pokémon Ninjitsu. When the Pokémon were captured by Team Rocket, he had his Ariados bind him to a kite to fly around. While he managed to pierce their balloon, Tokichi fell down, so told Aya that she should do her best in fighting Team Rocket. Aya obeyed and managed to stall Team Rocket until Ash and Pikachu came, who blasted Team Rocket off.
Tokichi had an Ariados, who was used to navigate his kite.
