Yuzo (Japanese: ユウゾウ Yūzō) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. He is one of Professor Rowan's four assistants who first appeared in Following A Maiden's Voyage!.
Yuzo debuted in Following A Maiden's Voyage!. He was taking care of the Pokémon at the lab in Sandgem Town while Rowan was out, when a fight broke out between the Piplup and the Chimchar reserved for a beginning Trainer. Things became even more disorganized after a Staraptor was accidentally attacked and it began to use Whirlwind inside the lab. Yuzo began to worry what Professor Rowan would say. He was going to attempt to clean the lab up when Rowan returned with the new Trainer, Dawn.
It was revealed that his first Pokémon was a Starly, and his brother's (sister in the English dub) was a Bidoof.
Yuzo appeared from Camping It Up! to One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team! as one of the teachers at Professor Rowan's Pokémon Summer Academy. His duties included handing everyone their rental Pokémon and refereeing several events, including the Pokémon Triathlon.
In DPS01, Yuzo was seen outside Professor Rowan's lab studying a Shinx. He was then seen bidding farewell to Dawn on her journey to Hoenn.
|Yuzo's Starly has never appeared but has only been mentioned, it is unknown if he still has it or not. When Professor Rowan's assistants were examining a Starly and Staraptor, Yuzo said that he was a big fan of Starly and it was the first Pokémon he obtained on his journey, with the other assistant stating that his was a Bidoof.
None of Starly's moves are known.
