Mitch Mitchum

Mitch Mitchum

Mitch Mitchum (Japanese: ミツオダ・ミツオ Mitsuo Mitsuoda) is a character of the day who appeared in Rough, Tough Jigglypuff.

A former executive, Mitch took time off from his job in order to look for a birthday present for his daughter, Lisa. However, the present she wanted was a Jigglypuff. Determined to make her wish come true, Mitch went into the woods and tried to capture the same Jigglypuff for months on end. No matter how hard he tried, he was unable to capture the Pokémon.

That changed when Ash and his friends came across Mitch. Using a plan of Max's, they trapped Jigglypuff in a cabin and forced it to Sing to Pikachu. Because the walls had metal on them, the voice reflected off and lulled Jigglypuff to sleep. However, Mitch decided not to capture the Jigglypuff, saying he didn't feel it was right.

When he returned home, he was shocked to see that Jigglypuff had followed him. It was angry at him for leaving, and it wanted to continue playing with him. Lisa, excited at seeing a Jigglypuff, was proud of her father, who was happy that he had made his daughter's birthday a happy one.
