==History==

He was first seen aboard a helicopter alongside [[Matori]] as it approached Alola. At that moment, Giovanni contacted them for a briefing on their progress.

Gozu first appeared in ''[[SM087|Filling the Light with Darkness!]]'', where he and the rest of the Matori Matrix were sent to the [[Alola]] [[region]] by {{an|Giovanni}}. He was first seen aboard a helicopter alongside [[Matori]] as it approached Alola. At that moment, Giovanni contacted them for a briefing on their progress. After Matori completed the call, she asked Gozu if they would arrive in Alola soon, and when he confirmed that they would, she had him give the order to activate their craft's cloaking device.
 
In ''[[SM088|Full Moon and Many Arms!]]'', the Matori Matrix arrived in Alola, but were left lethargic due to {{DL|RecurringLight wild Pokémon in thetrio (anime)|Necrozma}} draining Ultra Aura from the adults around the region. Despite this, when they encountered Necrozma in its {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Necrozma|Dawn Wings}} form, they managed to trap it inside an electrified net before it shortly broke out. The unit briefly retreated, only to return and attack {{DL|RecurringLight wild Pokémon in thetrio (anime)|Lunala}} and [[{{DL|Light trio (anime)|Solgaleo|Nebby]]}} using laser cannons on their aircraft while the pair recuperated on the beach of [[Melemele Island]]. They ensnared Lunala and Nebby in another electrified net, but it was soon destroyed by [[Gladion's Silvally]] and [[Ash's Pikachu]]. Nebby retaliated by hitting the aircraft with {{m|Flash Cannon}}, forcing them to retreat again. Later, after Necrozma possessed Nebby, turned into {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Necrozma|Dusk Mane Necrozma}}, and fled through an [[Ultra Wormhole]], Gozu and the rest of the unit were rejuvenated and continued their mission.
 
In ''[[SM089|The Prism Between Light and Darkness!]]'', Gozu and the rest of the Matori Matrix witnessed the [[Ultra Guardians]] and Lunala head inside an Ultra Wormhole and attempted to pursue them, only to be stopped by [[{{an|Professor Kukui]]}} and [[Faba]]. Gozu, along with several {{tc|Team Rocket Grunt}}s, headed down to [[Ten Carat Hill]] to face the duo. There, Gozu used his {{me|Aggron}} to easily defeat Kukui's {{p|Braviary}} along withand Faba's {{p|Hypno}} and {{p|Alakazam}}.
 
Gozu reappeared againIn ''[[SM090|Securing the Future!]]'', where Professor Kukui was able to defeat hisGozu's Aggron with {{pTP|Professor Kukui|Incineroar}}. UoonUpon learning that repairs to the aircraft were complete, he returned there and thehad unitit was going to flyinghead into the Ultra Wormhole. However, onlythe foraircraft was attacked by {{DL|RecurringGuardian wild Pokémon in thedeities (anime)|Tapu Koko}}, to attackforcing the aircraftMatori Matrix to retreat.
 
==Character==
Gozu has been shown to be a very serious and competent person. However, he tends to wear an eyepatch over his right eye, despite the fact that there is nothing physically wrong with said eye. Gozu is also shown to have a very close bond with his {{p|Aggron}}, allowing it to [[Mega Evolution|Mega Evolve]]. In addition, he has a rational mindset; in ''[[SM089|The Prism Between Light and Darkness!]]'', he knew better than to pursue the [[Ultra Guardians]] through the [[Ultra Wormhole]] after the airship had been damaged.
