Pokémon the Series: Black & White
Porter first appeared when he was shown to take the tickets of passengers boarding the cruiseship departing the Nuvema Town harbor. Ash, Iris and Cilan gave their tickets to Porter, but he wasn't able to let them on board, as they didn't have the proper tickets. After Ash and his friends got the real tickets that were stolen by Team Rocket, he welcomed them aboard, and told them that he would accompany them on their travels through the Decolore Archipelago. He appeared again in the following episode as Ash and co. disembarked at Honey Island.
In Cilan and the Case of the Purrloin Witness!, Porter encountered Ash and friends yet again. The three were surprised to see Porter on a different cruiseship, albeit in a different uniform. Porter revealed that, like Nurse Joy, Officer Jenny, and Don George, he is part of a family of identical members, the Porter they encountered earlier being his first cousin.
- Each Porter has a different color on the collars of their jackets and the lining of their shoes.
- The stripes and funnels on each cruise ship have the same color scheme as the collars and shoes the Porter working on that cruise have.
- Although they are also part of a family of identical members, unlike, Nurse Joy, Officer Jenny and Don George, Porter's Japanese name does not begin with the kana ジ.
- in the English dubbed episode when Ash, Iris and Cilan first board the ship, Porter introduces himself as "Porter" shortly followed by Ash calling him "Parker" in reference to his Japanese name "Parker"
