The ring is my rolling sea.
The towering waves shaped me.
Crash! Crash! Crasher Wake!
Crash! Crash! Crasher Wake!
I’m the tidal wave of power to wash you away!
Put out the fire, Crasher Wake!
Run from electricity, Crasher Wake!
Ah, ah, aaaah!
The ring is my sea.

–Crasher Wake, Platinum.

Crasher Wake serves as the Gym Leader at the Pastoria City Gym. Wake specializes in Water-type Pokémon, and holds the Fen Badge for the trainers that defeat him.

Appearance

Crasher Wake is a middle-aged man, who has a patch of black hair and beard. He doesn't wear a shirt, but he wears orange/blue bracers and boots. His blue pants with orange outlines have black appendages on his legs, which resemble Swampert's appearance. He also wears a blue mask with white wings-like appendages. Crasher Wake is a very strong-built man.

Personality

Boisterous and dramatic, Crasher Wake is a very extroverted trainer of sorts. He is extremely adamant in his beliefs, going so far in his training to the point of enduring the raw power of a heavy waterfall to prove it. Despite not being a Fighting type specialist, Crasher Wake enjoys proving his muscle even in defeat.

Etymology

The name Crasher Wake comes from "wake" of an object in water; e.g. the wake of a boat is the disturbance it makes as it travels through water. The term "Crasher" could refer to crashing waves.

His Japanese name, Makishimamu Kamen, means "Maximum Mask", referring to the mask on his face. It also contains "kishi," which is Japanese for "coast," and "shima", which is Japanese for "island". Following the plant-based theme of naming Gym Leaders, it could also comes from "Maxillaria", a genus of flowers.
