Marcel (Japanese: マッキー McKee) is a character of the day who appeared in The Garden of Eatin'.

The owner of the Banana Slakoth Garden, Marcel was in the middle of a big problem when Ash and his friends showed up. The Garden had been closed due to a Snorlax eating all of the bananas in the park. To make matters even worse, whenever any Pokémon tried to battle with the Snorlax, it would merely use Yawn and make them fall asleep.

Marcel was just about to give up when Brock suggested that he catch a Slakoth from the Garden and evolve it into a Vigoroth. His reasoning was because of Vigoroth's Vital Spirit Ability, which would prevent it from falling asleep. Taking his advice, Marcel caught a Slakoth, and, after battling Ash's Pikachu, Torkoal, and Grovyle, it evolved. Using the Wild Monkey Pokémon, Marcel battled the Snorlax and successfully caught it.

After opening the park, Marcel revealed that Snorlax had given him an idea. One of the rooms was designed for visitors to sleep if they were feeling tired, and Marcel's newly caught Snorlax helped them fall asleep using Yawn.
