< User:MH‎ | Appearances of the anime characters

Here are listed the appearances of Gym Leaders in the Pokémon anime. The characters are in the order in which the Gyms are challenged in the games rather than in the order of appearance. Note that Ash's friends and their relatives are on their own pages, and Giovanni is listed on the page of antagonists. Main anime episodes and the side story episodes are in their Japanese airing order. Movies, specials, Pikachu shorts and manga chapters follow after.
