Matt the Black Arcanine was a houseguest on Pokemon Big Brother 6 (DCU)and Pokemon Big Brother 8 (DCU).

In Pokemon Big Brother 6, Matt was one of the 12 new houseguests. He was known for his showmances with Riou the Biker Grovyle and Wiley the Weavile, and his competitive prowess, winning 10 competitions in total (5 HoH, 4 PoV, 1 BoB). Matt very often found himself on the bottom of every allaince he created, leading to him having to win competitions in order to save himself. He made it all the way to finale night where he lost the final Head of Household competition to Leon the Pyroar and was evicted, finishing in 3rd place and becoming the final juror. He later voted for Leon to win.

Later, he returned for Pokemon Big Brother 8, representing season 6 along with Leon. He quickly found himself in danger when Kandy the Whimsicott nominated him for eviction, but he won the veto competition saving himself. Unfortunately for him, it led to the eviction of his #1 ally Rex the Scrafty. However, he managed to fight back, winning two HoH's and ultimately placing himself in a position where he was usually a swing vote, however he was still a major target to the house. In week 9, he was nominated for eviction by Randolph the Ralts who won HoH and then the subsequent veto competition. Matt discovered the secret door in the have not room which contained a Diamond Power of Veto which was eventuakky claimed by Neon the Flareon. Neon did not use the veto, blindsiding Matt, leading to his eviction. He finished in 10th place, becoming the first juror. He later voted for Spaniel the Dewott to win.
