Jeremiah (Japanese: ウブカタ Ubukata) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime who first appeared in Classroom Training!.


Jeremiah is a sales representative working for the Pokétch Company in Jubilife City, and one of the students in Snowpoint City's Trainers' School.

In his debut episode, he took a test in which he answered all of Candice's questions correctly while Ash impatiently answered them, resulting in the wrong answers. Because of this, Jeremiah thought Ash was not a truly skilled Trainer, and only won his Gym Badges by luck. After the test, he tried to take back the Poké Balls stolen by Team Rocket. He engaged in battle with James's Carnivine with his Skuntank, but Carnivine's Vine Whip incapacitated Skuntank, not allowing it to use any moves. Jeremiah was helped by Ash and his friends, and upon realizing that Ash was a competent Trainer, he apologized to Ash.

In Sliding Into Seventh!, Jeremiah was seen looking after a class of younger students, and when Team Rocket attempted to steal the school's Poké Balls for a second time, he used his Skuntank's Stench Ability to chase Team Rocket away.

Jeremiah made a brief cameo in A Grand Fight for Winning!, where he watched the Contest Battle between Dawn and Zoey in the final round of the Sinnoh Grand Festival in the Snowpoint Trainers' School, alongside Candice.
