Archy (Japanese: ウインぴょん Winpyon), known as Arckee in Chuang Yi's translations, is an Arcanine owned by Crystal in the Pokémon Adventures manga.

History

Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter

Crystal and Archy

Archy was first seen at Mt. Mortar when Crystal was training to become a capture pro. During her training Archy was a wild Pokémon out of control. He was enraged by an eye injury from a Larvitar and went on a rampage as a result. Due to this, Crystal fell and broke her arms. Later when she awoke a group of wild Pokémon helped her recover. After Crystal woke up she went looking for Arcanine to see what caused his rampage. When she found him she noticed his eye, and has Parasect nurse his eye back to health. Noticing that he was not naturally aggressive, Crystal decided to add him to her team.

Archy first showed up in Slugging It Out with Slugma alongside Crystal's other Pokémon to help prove her capturing skills to Professor Oak.

In Suddenly Suicune II, Archy was used in Crystal's battle to capture Suicune. After failing to capture Suicune Crystal sends Archy and Bonee after it. Bonee rides on Archy and uses False Swipe while Archy tackles it. While it appears Suicune blocked it it soon became obvious that a translucent wall between Suicune and Bonee was made. Archy, alongside Crystal and Bonee, attempt to keep the wall from closing but in the end Suicune closes it and escapes.

In Lively Larvitar, Archy helps with Crystal's training on Mt. Mortar. Suddenly, Archy growls, and the Larvitar that injured him before appears. It then begins attacking Archy, while targeting the right side where he has trouble seeing. Due to this Archy is quickly defeated and Megaree finishes the battle for him.

HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter

In Pleased as Punch With Parasect, Archy was used in a battle against Team Rocket Executive Ariana and her Gloom. Despite putting up a good fight, he was recalled when Crystal left the battle to chase Arceus.

Personality and characteristics

Archy is a very quick-tempered Pokémon and often rushes into battle using his incredible speed. Archy has proven to be a strong battler and is Crystal's main mode of transportation. Due to a Larvitar attacking him he has bad eyesight on the right side. Since then he has proved to be a strong battler though he is mainly used for land transportation. However, when Crystal went back to Mt. Mortar to retrieve her lost skills the initial culprit was revealed to be a Larvitar, who exploited Archy's eyesight to defeat him even though he was far stronger than Larvitar.
