Watt (anime)

Watt (Japanese: ワット Watt) is a minor recurring character who appeared in the Pokémon anime. He is the assistant to Wattson at the Mauville Gym.



Watt debuted in Watt's with Wattson?. He tended to stand aside and let Wattson do everything, but he served as the referee in Ash's Gym battle for the Dynamo Badge. Watt realized something was amiss when Wattson fled following his defeat, and he later led the group to a nearby abandoned power plant. After Team Rocket's defeat, Watt was relieved that Wattson decided to resume his role as Mauville Gym Leader.

When Ash and his friends returned in Manectric Charge, Watt battled May and her Skitty with his Ampharos. Skitty proved to be stronger and defeated Ampharos. Watt later informed May that a Pokémon Contest was taking place in Verdanturf Town.
