Egan (Japanese: ヤケイシ Yakeishi) is a character of the day who appeared in Some Like it Hot.

Egan is a Fire-type Trainer, and like Misty, wants to capture and raise only Pokémon of his preferred type. More than anything, he wanted the Magcargo that was blocking Ash and his friends' path towards Blackthorn City. However, the Magcargo was very powerful, and Egan's first attempt to battle it ended in failure.

His impulsive behavior and sharp comments sparked an intense rivalry with Misty. Both got into several arguments about whether Fire types or Water types were the best. Over lunch, Misty decided to settle the squabble and the pair began to get along. Egan had a rematch against the Magcargo, and heeding Misty's advice of adaptability in a match, he caught himself the Magcargo. Eventually, they teamed up and defeated Team Rocket with a combined Flamethrower and Water Gun attack.

Egan's Magcargo
Ash and his friends first stumbled upon Magcargo after it was blocking the path towards Blackthorn City. Ash yelled at it, causing Magcargo to wake up in a rage, so it retaliated with a blast of Flamethrower. Misty sent her Poliwhirl to deal with the roadblock, but Magcargo's protective shell was a great defense against the Water Gun attacks. It went on to knock Poliwhirl out with a Flamethrower. Egan tried his luck, though the match played out much the same, and his Flareon was ultimately defeated.

Egan later caught this giant Magcargo with the help of his Flareon. After he caught it though, Team Rocket ended up stealing it, but Egan was able to get it back. Magcargo then used its Fire moves to subdue Jessie's Arbok and James's Victreebel. Finally, with the help of Misty's Poliwhirl, Magcargo was able to blast them off.

Magcargo's known moves are Rock Slide, Withdraw, Body Slam, and Flamethrower.
