Simon is a character appearing in Pokémon: Johto League Champions.
Pokémon the Series: Gold and Silver
When a huge storm came, Simon was placed in a basement, where he was safe. During the time spent in the basement, he encountered a Pidgey, a Rattata, and an Oddish, who communicated with them. Once it was safe outside, Simon saw his friends vanished.
He pursued the path of an interpreter, as he knows what the Pokémon "talk" judged by their feelings. However, due to some fraud interpreters, Officer Jenny accused him to be a fake interpreter. After a meeting with the fraud interpreters, he visited Ash's Pikachu before turning himself in. The fraud interpreters sent Magnemite and Magneton to drain electricity from the Pokémon Center. Simon persuaded them and Jenny captured the fraud interpreters, apologizing to Simon for her accusations. Strengthened by the heroes' advice and a talk with Team Rocket's Meowth, Simon decided to continue interpreting.
