History: Zach grew up in Goldenrod city with his dad, his pet Growlithe, and his older brother, Hector. Zach grew up listening to his dad and Hector fight all day, every day. Hector was doing horrible things like drugs, killing pokemon, and stealing them. Zach resented Hector after he found out what Hector had done. The news spread about Hectors crimes and Zach began to get bullied at school.
Finally, Hector got into a huge fight with his dad and knocked him unconscious. He ran away leaving Zach home alone. Zachs dad was put in a coma. Later, Goldenrod city was attacked by Team Rocket. As Zach watched them in horror from his bedroom window. He watched all the grunts and identified his brother! Zach went outside with his Growlithe and charged at his brother. Hector was surprised and winced when he saw Zach. Zach punched him in the chest and Hector collapsed. Hector got slowly back up and sent out his only pokemon, a Weezing. It charged at Growlithe but Growlithe hit it with a powerful flamethrower attack. The Weezing fainted which made Zach the winner. Hector was bewildered at his defeat. Zach spit on Hector as he walked away.
While Zach was waiting for his dad to wake up from his coma, he trained alot. He went to local routes and battled many trainers and wild pokemon.
