Oh? Now, what are you doing here? What? You say you've gotten past all my rigged doors? Wahahahah! Now, that is amusing! The plans to reform Mauville are done for now. Making traps for my Gym and battling with young Trainers like you are the things I live for now! Then I, Wattson, the Leader of Mauville Gym, shall electrify you!

–Wattson in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Wattson is the third Gym Leader of Mauville City in the Hoenn region who specializes with Electric types. He will award the player character the Dynamo Badge once defeated.

Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Personality

Wattson is proficient at battling with Electric-type Pokémon, though he owns more Electric-type Pokémon that he does not use. He is normally full of spirit, and laughs at anyone's jokes, which gives other an impression of him being a geezer. Although mostly stubborn, he can be very caring on certain occasions.

Etymology

The name Wattson comes from "watt" which is the SI unit of power (the amount of energy released per unit of time) and commonly associated with electricity.

His Japanese name, Tessen, translates into "steel wire," as wires conduct electricity. It may also come from "Tesla", referring to Nikola Tesla, inventor of the Tesla coil, and/or the tesla, the metric unit of magnetic induction, named after the aforementioned inventor.
