Mitch Mitchum

A former executive of Pokéblock Unlimited, Mitch took time off from his job in order to look for a birthday present for his daughter, Lisa. However, the present she wanted was a Jigglypuff. Determined to make her wish come true, Mitch went into the woods and tried to capture the same Jigglypuff for months on end. No matter how hard he tried, he was unable to capture the Pokémon.

When Ash and his friends came across Mitch, Max devised a plan to trap Jigglypuff in a cabin and force it to Sing to Pikachu. This succeeded, and because the walls had metal on them, the voice reflected off and lulled Jigglypuff to sleep instead. However, Mitch decided not to capture the Jigglypuff, feeling it wasn't right.

When he returned home the next day, he was shocked to see that Jigglypuff had followed him. It was angry at him for leaving, and it wanted to continue playing with him. Lisa, excited at seeing a Jigglypuff, was proud of her father, who was happy that he had made his daughter's birthday a happy one.

Loudred is Mitch's main Pokémon. It was used to assist him in catching Jigglypuff for his daughter's birthday. Though its Soundproof Ability prevented it from falling asleep because of Jigglypuff's Singing, it instead became infatuated with it thanks to Jigglypuff's Cute Charm Ability.

Mitch took Loudred home with him, where it quickly became well acquainted with Lisa.

Loudred's known moves are Mega Punch, Hyper Voice, and Uproar, and its Ability is Soundproof.

Mitch's daughter, Lisa, wanted a Jigglypuff for her birthday so Mitch took some time off of his job to find one. However, each attempted catch was unsuccessful. With the help of Ash and his friends, Mitch was able to catch one as it was placed in a sound-amplified room. However, seeing that it was better off in the forest, Mitch decided that it was best to leave it there.

He returned home empty-handed, much to Lisa's disappointment. However, Jigglypuff had become used to being chased by Mitch, so it followed him home and decided to stay with the family.

Jigglypuff's known moves are Flamethrower, Sing, and Rollout, and its Ability is Cute Charm.
