- If you were looking for the Magma Admin from Pokémon Adventures, known under a non-canonical name of Hank, see Blaise.
Hank, along with many other villagers, were competing in a contest to see who the next king would be; whoever had the crown in their hands by sunset would be the king for a year. However, because of interference by Ash's Aipom, Hank decided to help Ash in order to find Aipom and the crown that she had stolen.
Even though Hank often has great ideas such as using his Nosepass to navigate through the mountains, he has a problem with speaking his mind at times. Later, when they find Aipom with the crown now stuck on her head, Hank comes up with another idea of feeding Aipom a sour Belue Berry in order to get the crown off. By sunset, he was the one with the crown in his hands and was named King for a Year. Ash said that he should have no problem being king because he always came up with great plans.
| Hank sent out Nosepass to act as a compass in order to find Aipom when the crown was stuck to her head. Later, it battled Team Rocket's Fearow-shaped robot when Ash was trying to remove the crown on Aipom.
Nosepass's only known move is Thunder Wave.
