Undubbed character This article is about a character featured in the Pokémon anime who has not yet debuted in the English language dub.
As such, their information may contain romanized Japanese names, rather than dub names.

(Japanese: ゲンバ Genba) is a character of the day who appeared in JN051.

Genba met Ash and Goh while they were investigating an outbreak of Geodude at Rock Tunnel. Ash received word that Genba was a challenger in the World Coronation Series. As a result, he challenged him to a battle, which he accepted. Genba used his Gurdurr against Ash's Farfetch'd, and after a tough match, Farfetch'd's Brutal Swing was able to smash through Gurdurr's girder. Gurdurr was subsequently knocked out, causing Genba's ranking to go down. Genba comforted Gurdurr afterwards and gave it his pickaxe. He then watched as Farfetch'd ran off.
