Morty (Jp. Name: Matsuba)

Hometown: Ecruteak City, Johto
First Appearence In Episode: A Ghost Of A Chance


Morty is the Gym Leader in Ecruteak City. Morty is a kind person who also teaches students on the powers of Ghost Pokémon. Inspired by the Legends and Legendary Pokémon, Morty does a lot of study into them with Eusine, especially since they inhabited Ecruteak City. When he met Ash, he originally did not believe that Ash had seen the Legendary Bird, Ho-oh and later Suicune until he battled Ash and saw the righteousness in his heart. Even though Morty uses Ghost Pokémon, he does not have the demeanor that many people would expect from someone who spends his time with Ghost Pokémon.


Morty has worked up the ranks and become the Ecruteak City Gym Leader.
