The poacher

The poacher pursued Froslass's child Snorunt with his very powerful Glalie. He intended to sell Snorunt on the Pokémon black market, as they are highly desired and will fetch top dollar. However, Ash, his friends, and Team Rocket stopped him, and began to battle his Glalie. Although Glalie defeated Jessie's Yanmega, James's Carnivine, and Dawn's Buneary, Ash's Chimchar (after teaming up with the wild Froslass) was able to defeat it. Afterwards, both the poacher and Glalie were locked in the same cage that the poacher used to trap Snorunt, and was left for Officer Jenny to deal with.


Glalie is the poacher's main, strongest, and apparently only Pokémon. It assisted the poacher in obtaining Snorunt, by frightening the Snorunt into submission through using Leer. It proved itself to be a powerful battler, but ultimately fell to Ash's Chimchar and a wild Froslass.

Glalie's known moves are Leer, Gyro Ball, Hyper Beam, and Protect.
