Marcel (Japanese: マッキー McKee) is a character of the day who appeared in The Garden of Eatin'.
The director 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, and incidentally scaring off and starving all of its resident Slakoth.
Marcel was just about to give up hope, but after a video call through to Professor Oak, he learned that a Pokémon with an Ability like Vital Spirit would overcome Snorlax's sleep-inducing Yawn attack. Taking his advice, Marcel caught a Slakoth, and, after battling Ash's Pikachu, Torkoal, and Grovyle, it evolved into a Vigoroth. Using the Wild Monkey Pokémon, Marcel battled the Snorlax and successfully caught it.
After re-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.
