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



Watt first appeared was in Watt's with Wattson?. He more or less stood aside and let Wattson do everything, although he did serve as the referee in Ash's Gym battle for the Dynamo Badge. Watt realized something was amiss when Wattson took off 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 the others returned in Manectric Charge, Watt was featured much more prominently. He battled May and her Skitty with his Ampharos. Skitty proved to be stronger and defeated his Ampharos. Watt later informed May that a Pokémon Contest was taking place in Verdanturf Town.


Watt is an overly anxious and concerned individual, mainly because Wattson's jokes can go too far. Even so, he and his boss are a fantastic team with Watt's responsible nature assisting Wattson in running the Mauville Gym.
