John’s interest in the paranormal began as a child, when he had a nightmare about the legendary Pokémon Darkrai. Frightened but fascinated by the experience, he began searching for any information about the mysterious beast. Since then, he has spent his life learning about the paranormal side of the Pokémon world. Research of this kind requires an uncommonly high level of funding, so to make ends meet, John opened Unova’s first (and only) paranormal investigation and removal company. His job took him around first Unova, then the world. Most of his work involved the removal of Ghost Pokémon, gaining him the nickname “the Ghost Buster”. Impressed with his mastery of ghost Pokémon during a investigation at her gym, Sinnoh’s Gardenia extended him an invitation to the PAX Pokémon League to serve as Gym Leader. With his trusty Rotom-pack and his own specially modified Dark Balls, Hamato takes on all challengers: Ghost, paranormal, or trainer alike! If you can show you “ain’t afraid of no ghosts” and take down his team, you will earn yourself the Buster Badge!
