The Astounding Mandi (Japanese: コーム Kōmu), spelled Mandy in Extreme Pokémon: The Guide for the Ultimate Fan, was Ash's first opponent in theIndigo Plateau Conference.

He is a character of the day who appeared in Round One - Begin!. Mandi was confident that Ash was going to be an easy opponent for the first round; however, due to his enormously over-inflated ego, he underestimated his opponent and had all three of his Pokémon taken out by Krabby, who evolved into Kingler during the battle.

He is a very popular Trainer who has many fans. One reason for his popularity is probably that he can perform magic tricks—for example, he made a group of Pidgey appear from nowhere.

His design basis is in the Juggler Trainer class, though his hairstyle is considerably different from them.

He reappeared in a flashback in Friends to the End and appeared in The Rivals.
