- If you were looking for the recurring character and rival to Ash whose name is similar to Alan, see Alain.
He reappeared in a flashback in Playing The Leveling Field! where it was revealed that he challenged Fantina. He lost the first match with his Nosepass but was able to defeat her with his newly evolved Probopass.
This listing is of Alan's known Pokémon:
| Probopass is Alan's only Pokémon, having owned it since it was a Nosepass. Alan was determined to grow strong with his Nosepass, but found himself unable to defeat Fantina, the Hearthome Gym Leader. He traveled to Mt. Coronet, knowing that the special magnetic fields the mountain produced could evolve Nosepass into Probopass. While training he met Ash and during a battle against Turtwig, Nosepass evolved into Probopass only for Team Rocket to steal it. However Alan's determination to get Probopass back won through and he recovered his longtime partner. Afterwards, he returned to Hearthome Gym and defeated Fantina.
