|desc=Anabel first called on {{p|Alakazam}} in ''[[AG169|Talking a Good Game!]]'' to help her and {{Ash}} when they were attacked by {{TRT}}. Alakazam was able to beat them with its powerful {{t|Psychic}} attacks. Ash then realized that Anabel was a [[Frontier Brain]] and that he would have to battle Alakazam. Ash chose {{AP|Corphish}} for the match. Anabel had the ability to telepathically communicate with her Pokémon and give commands without saying a word. In the end, Alakazam easily defeated {{p|Corphish}}. Alakazam then went on to defeat [[Ash's Tauros]] before finally being defeated by his {{AP|Pikachu}}, but not before weakening it.
 
In ''[[AG170|Second Time's the Charm!]]'', Ash had a rematch with Anabel. Again, she chose Alakazam as her first Pokémon. It went head to head again with Ash's Corphish once again, but this time with a little bit of luck as well as Ash's quick thinking, Alakazam was defeated by Corphish's {{m|Bubble Beam}}.
 
Alakazam's known moves are {{m|Psychic}}, {{m|Psybeam}}, {{m|Focus Punch}}, and {{m|Recover}}.}}

|desc={{p|Metagross}} was for the first time seen during Ash's first match against her, where it easily defeated Ash's {{p|Pikachu}}, losing the match for Ash. During Ash's rematch against Anabel, Metagross easily defeated Ash's Corphish, but the Iron Leg Pokémon finally tied with his {{p|Tauros}}, as its {{m|Meteor Mash}} collided with Tauros's {{m|Take Down}}.
 
Metagross's known moves are {{m|Psychic}}, {{m|Iron Defense}}, {{m|Meteor Mash}}, and {{m|Hyper Beam}}.}}

|desc={{p|Espeon}}, Anabel's favorite Pokémon, was seen during Ash's rematch against her, where it battled against Ash's Pikachu. Even though Espeon at first managed to overwhelm Pikachu with its speed and power, one of Pikachu's {{m|Thunderbolt}}s put the lights off, making it impossible for both Anabel and Espeon to see where the next attack was coming from. This cost some critical hits for Espeon, and Pikachu was finally able to defeat the Sun Pokémon with a {{m|Volt Tackle}}, winning the match for Ash and earning him the [[Symbol|Ability Symbol]].
 
Espeon's known moves are {{m|Quick Attack}}, {{m|Iron Tail}}, {{m|Zap Cannon}}, and {{m|Psychic}}.}}

|epname=Challenging a Towering Figure!
|desc=After winning the Twinleaf Festival's annual tournament, Ash was given, as well as a trophy, the chance to battle Palmer in an exhibition match. The match was one-on-one and Palmer chose his powerhouse {{p|Rhyperior}} to battle. In response, Ash chose {{AP|Grotle}} as he realized that Palmer would be ready to counter his normal strategy of using speed attacks and decided to focus on power instead.
 
Rhyperior proved to be a very tough opponent, being able to withstand Grotle's attacks due to its [[Ability]] and giving the Grove Pokémon a very tough time. However the tables seemed to turn when Rhyperior forced Grotle to swallow an {{m|Energy Ball}}, giving it a major power boost. Using this Grotle was able to cause significant damage to Rhyperior, but Grotle was simply unable to stand up to the massive attack power of Rhyperior and was defeated.
 
Rhyperior's known moves are {{m|Rock Polish}}, {{m|Sandstorm}}, {{m|Rock Wrecker}}, and {{m|Megahorn}}, and its Ability is {{a|Solid Rock}}.}}
==Trivia==
* Though the word "{{wp|Business magnate#Etymology|tycoon}}" is actually derived from the Japanese word {{j|{{jwp|征夷大将軍|大君}}}} ''taikun'' (a title for the {{wp|shogun}}), it is converted into {{wp|katakana}} as an English term to match the names of the other Frontier Brains' Trainer classes, rather than using the {{wp|hiragana}} {{j|たいくん}} or its respective katakana {{j|タイクン}} (without the lengthening {{wp|chōonpu}}).
