Anthony (Japanese: アノキ Anoki) is a character of the day of the Pokémon anime who appeared in The Punchy Pokémon. In the episode, Anthony was training his Hitmonchan to compete in the P1 Grand Prix. He was so determined to train and win, that he was neglecting his family. His daughter, Rebecca, convinced Ash and Brock to compete in the P1 Grand Prix to defeat him. Ash entered using his Primeape. Anthony noticed early on that the ape Pokémon was very strong. Anthony ended up losing in the semi-finals to Team Rocket and the Hitmonlee they had stolen from Giant, another competitor. Eventually, Ash defeated Hitmonlee in the finals and won the P1 Grand Prix. Anthony offered to train Primeape for Ash, and Ash agreed. Neither Anthony nor Primeape have been seen since that episode.
Anthony's Hitmonchan was first seen training. When Ash and his friends saw him, they thought he was a wild Pokémon, prompting Ash to want to catch him. He taught Pikachu a boxing move called the Rocket Punch, though it didn't have much of an effect and he lost when Anthony gave Hitmonchan instructions. In the P1 Grand Prix, Hitmonchan defeated a Machamp before being defeated by Giant's Hitmonlee under Jessie's ownership when his foot got stuck in glue Meowth put on the stage. Hitmonchan's known moves are Agility and Comet Punch.
