In the Games
Hiker Anthony, known as Hiker Andy in the games, is seen in Pokémon: Black and White, during an event at Nimbasa City in which you battle a trainer and ride the ferris wheel with them, changing depending on the season and gender of the player character. Hiker Andy appears in the summer and only if you are male. In the Japanese version of the game, Hiker Andy is apparently coming onto the player character, even asking if he "ever had a lover." In Pokémon: Black 2 and White 2, Hiker Andy makes a reappearance, appearing in the autumn to the female character. He first states he is "not interested" in fighting a girl, and later spills his woes of his lost love two summers ago, obviously referring to the events in Black and White. Unlike in Black and White, however, this dialogue is kept in the English version of the game.
Hiker Anthony is notorious for being extremely amorous, creeping on every person on the blog. While at the beginning he was exclusively flirting with young men, such as Hilbert, lately he has expanded his horizons to everyone. Hiker Anthony apparently cannot take a hint, as he has continued to flirt with everyone, despite their quite obvious distaste for him.
Major blog events
Hiker Anthony first appeared as a fan-request, and appeared a post later at Cilan's bachelor party, almost immediately gaining a great amount of fans. Since then, Hiker Anthony frequently appears, especially at large events. In every appearance, Hiker Anthony has been seen flirty in some way with anyone he can get his hands on. Hiker Anthony once threw a party, inviting all the young men in town. Almost all of them showed up. Another notable thing Hiker Anthony has done is falling off his treadmill in heart-patterned underwear, scarring millions. Yet another was when Hiker Anthony suddenly appeared skinny, which had a similar response. He again appeared skinny when he was murdered, and Tori described it as "A skinny Hiker Anthony is like a skinny Santa. It’s terrible, wrong, and it makes everyone uncomfortable."
