Ampharos Train crew
They are in charge of a train, powered solely by an Ampharos, that runs from Snowpoint City to Lake Acuity. Their duties include conducting the train, communicating with the command center, informing passengers in case of an emergency, and inspecting the train.
Part way through the episode, they saw a signal set at danger and stopped the train. Looker and the engineer went to go investigate it, while everyone else waited outside the train, eating the lunchboxes Looker gave them. Team Rocket then showed up with a suction machine, sucking in all of Ash, Dawn, and Brock's Pokémon, as well as the train crew's Ampharos. Everyone except for Ash's Pikachu, Dawn's Piplup, Brock's Happiny, and the Ampharos escaped. The four of them escaped Team Rocket when their balloon crashed. They were eventually reunited with their Trainers and continued on their way to Lake Acuity.
When the train runs low on power, the engineer commands Ampharos to use Thunderbolt to charge the train.
|Ampharos was used by the Ampharos Train crew to power the steamtrain. It was stolen by Team Rocket with Pikachu, Piplup and Happiny, but they made their way back to the group near the end of the episode.|
