I had a Charmander, but that puny thing was so weak, it couldn't even beat the weakest opponents! So I left it on some rock in the woods. That thing is so stupid! No matter what I do to it, it keeps on following me. I finally got rid of it by promising I'd come back for it. It fell for it! It's probably still there waiting for me! (laughs)
~ Damian explaining that he abandoned Charmander by promising that he'd return for it, which he has no intention of doing.

Damian (in Japanese: ダイスケ, Daisuke) is a minor villain in the original Pokémon anime. He was voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa in the Japanese version and by Maddie Blaustein in the English version.

History

Though Damian looks like a stylish guy, he's actually very cruel. He is mostly interested in catching strong Pokémon, and expresses no legitimate interest in raising Pokémon himself. He owned a Charmander but he thought that it was too weak, so he abandoned him and left him on a rock, lying that he would eventually return for him. While Ash & his friends were at the Pokemon Center, Damian was bragging with his crew about how he abandoned his Charmander. Brock furiously confronts Damian and demands him to reclaim Charmander because he might die in the rain. Damien callously refused and attempted to battle Ash and his friends, but Nurse Joy intervenes, breaking up the fight, saying that using Pokémon to settle arguments is wrong. Angrily, Damian and his crew left.

After Charmander defeated Team Rocket, Damian returned to take Charmander back, apparently impressed by his power, and said that he didn't have to go through all the trouble raising Charmander himself, much to the gang's disgust. Damian ordered Charmander to return, but Charmander refused and wanted to join Ash and company, and smacked the Pokeball back at Damian's face.

Enraged, Damian attempted to attack the group with his other Pokémon, but Charmander and Pikachu defeated him with a combination of fire and electricity. Then Damian, all burnt up, ran away in fear, never to be seen again.
