Farley (Japanese: ハンペン Hanpen) is a character of the day who appeared in Aiming for the Top Floor!. He is one of the ninjas in the Kantonian Gym, and is in charge of its first floor.


Farley gave Ash and his classmates the seemingly impossible task of literally crossing the surface of a body of water. Lana and Sandy misinterpreted his directions and swam across, forcing him to clarify. He then presented them with a box of useful tools and revealed that they could use their Pokémon to assist them with the task. With these conditions in mind, Lillie ordered Snowy to freeze the pond with a Powder Snow, allowing her and her friends to cross with ease. Farley was impressed and allowed everyone to advance through to the second floor.
