(Japanese: ヒロシ Hiroshi) is a character of the day who appeared in Curbing the Crimson Tide!.

He and his friends were confronted by the menacing Red Lightning, who challenged them to a Pokémon battle. Despite his friends' warnings, Hiroshi was keen, so he called out his Poliwag. Red Lightning attained a quick victory and scribbled on Poliwag's face.

When he took Poliwag to the Pokémon Center, he ran into Ash and his friends, which alerted them to the troublesome Red Lightning that plaqued Commerce City.
