O (Japanese: オウ Ō) is a character of the day who appeared in To Thine Own Pokémon Be True!.


He has a Ping Pong Training Center in Vermilion City. He traveled all the way to Sinnoh to participate in Sandalstraw Town's Pokémon Ping Pong Tournament, which he won. He is well-known for being an expert ping pong player.

After seeing Dawn's Ambipom's talent for ping pong, he invited her to train in his training center. After the tournament, Dawn asked Ambipom if she wanted to continue competing in Pokémon Contests or go practice Ping Pong at O's training center. After much contemplation, Ambipom chose ping pong and left with O.

Main article: Dawn's Ambipom

Ambipom had a natural talent for Pokémon Ping Pong and was noticed by O during the Pokémon Ping Pong Tournament. After assuming they were regular players, O couldn't believe they were beginners and during the tournament watched Ambipom closely. Even though Dawn was an average player, Ambipom helped her through to the semi-finals where they were eliminated by O and Shiftry. Afterwards O offered Ambipom a place at his Ping Pong Training Center in Vermilion City which she accepted later with Dawn's permission.
