Gulzar (Japanese: ジュンジ Junji) is a one-time character in the Pokémon anime who appeared in Pokémon Food Fight!. He appeared on Butwal Island, when Tracey tried to pull his flower hat off his head, thinking that they were just flowers growing in the ground. Gulzar got angry and said that he is the greatest Grass-type Trainer in the Orange Islands. However, in Tracey's defense, Ash discussed with Gulzar. Angered by this, he challenged Ash Ketchum to a battle. After Gulzar sent out his Gloom, and Ash tried to send his Charizard, but ended up accidentally sending out his Squirtle, followed by his Snorlax. However, Snorlax's Poké Ball broke, forcing Ash to use it in the battle. When Snorlax woke up, it tried to eat Gulzar's Gloom, and then it ate Gulzar's flower hat and his lunch. Gulzar ran away, but appeared later when Ash and his friends were trying to go to the Pokémon Center of the island to get Snorlax's Poké Ball fixed. But Team Rocket tried to steal the supplement of food at the Center. After Ash and Snorlax defeated Team Rocket, Gulzar realized that Ash was a strong trainer, and gained respect for him.
