JoeIn appearedthe as{{pkmn|anime}}, Joe is a [[character of the day]] who appeared in ''[[EP009|The School of Hard Knocks]]''.
{{Ash}}, {{an|Misty}}, and {{an|Brockashfr}} were lost in a forest when they happened uponsaw Joe, who was being quizzed on facts about {{p|Pidgey}} while being forced to run on a treadmill. Ash thought he was being bullied, so he chased the older children away. Joe explained that he was a student at [[Pokémon Tech]], a school that teaches students how to [[Pokémon training|train]] {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}. JoeHe is on the bottom of the beginner class and the other kids were tutoring him before Ash showed up. Apparently, Joe actually knew everything about Pidgey and its evolutions, but he was pretending to be ignorant so he would not have to work harder. Ash demanded to know who was responsible for the "tutoring" program, and Joe showed him a picture of a pretty young girl named [[Giselle]]. It seemed that Joe had a crush on Giselleher, despite her harsh treatment.
Joe took Ash and his friends to the campus and showed them around. He explained that graduates of the school are allowed to compete in the [[Pokémon League]] without having to challenge [[Gym Leader]]s or collect [[Badge]]s. As a beginner, Joe had the skills of someone with about two Badges. He felt obligated to remain at Pokémon Tech because his parents paid so much to get him in. Joe then demonstrated some of the tools the school offered, such as a [[Pokémon {{pkmn|battle]]}} simulator that appeared to resemble the [[Pokémon games{{pkmn|Pokémon video games]]}}. {{an|Misty}} was annoyed by this, thinking that the simulation could not make up for the real thing, and proved this by defeating Joe in a Pokémon battle, with Joe using his Weepinbell and Misty using her {{TP|Misty|Starmie}}, despite the {{type|Water}} disadvantage on her part versus a {{type|Grass}}.
After witnessing [[Ash's Pikachu]] defeat Giselle's {{p|Cubone}}, Joe was finally convinced that he should leave Pokémon Tech, deciding to try to collect Badges instead. He and Giselle bid farewell, promising to meet again some day.
