Nelson (Japanese: ナオヤ Naoya) is a character of the day who appeared in Entei at Your Own Risk. He is a young Pokémon Trainer from Johto who dreams of catching Entei.
Nelson set up a complicated series of tripwires and alarms to detect where Entei would appear, then used his laptop to monitor them. However, the traps were set off by Ash and his friends instead of Entei.
Eventually, Entei appeared when Team Rocket nearly destroyed the hot springs. Nelson's strategy was to use Mean Look to trap Entei so he could capture it, but didn't realize that Entei's Roar would cancel out his Mean Look. After discovering this, it only added to Nelson's desire to capture the Legendary Pokémon.

|Misdreavus is Nelson's only known Pokémon. It first appeared when it rescued Larvitar during Ash's escape from Team Rocket's truck. It was later used in a battle against Ash's Phanpy, where it managed to confuse it and prevent it from escaping with Mean Look. However, the match was interrupted when Team Rocket netted Misdreavus. With the help of Bayleef, Misdreavus was saved.
Nelson hoped Misdreavus's Mean Look would prevent Entei from fleeing, but the Legendary Pokémon used Roar to end the confrontation.
Misdreavus's known moves are Headbutt, Swift, Psybeam, and Mean Look.
