Shingo is a character appearing in Pokémon: The Johto Journeys.


Pokémon the Series: Gold and Silver

Shingo is a student at the Pokémon Dojo run by Muramasa. He stopped fighting other students as he has info in his database about them and always wins. Muramasa brought Ash to fight him and after defeating Team Rocket, Shingo accepted Ash's challenge. Shingo's Scizor lost to Ash's Heracross after Ash used an unorthodox strategy to defeat it.

  • In Japanese version Shingo is not only Muramasa's student but also his son. In other versions they are unrelated to each other.
  • Shingo is one of the few "characters of the day" to be featured in a Kids' WB Pokémon TV spot, telling Ash he has an overdue library book when the latter asks the former if his computer has all the information on his battling skills and Pokémon. He was voiced by Eric Stuart in this spot.
