Here are a list of characters appearing in Master of the Colosseum.
Main characters Edit
Ash Ketchum, Colosseum Gladiator of the Kanto Battle Frontier Edit
Misty Waterflower, Leader of the Cerulean City Gym Edit
As the Cerulean City Gym Leader, Misty has finally been accepted by her sisters–Daisy, Violet, and Lily–as one of the now-four Sensational Sisters…though they still sometimes treat her like a kid. She maintains her unease around Bug-type Pokémon, but no longer freaks out in their mere presence.
Since becoming the official Cerulean City Gym Leader, Misty has concentrated on raising her Pokémon, leading many of them to evolve. Her impressive arsenal of Water-type Pokémon include Seaking, Starmie, Kingdra, Psyduck, Politoed, Corsola, Gyarados, Luvdisc (nicknamed “Caserin”), Azumarill, and Kingler, in addition to sharing the Gym’s Pokémon, including Seaking, Dewgong, Cloyster, Slowbro, Starmie, Goldeen, and Shellder with her sisters. Her Togetic, which she still misses terribly, resides in the Mirage Kingdom, but occasionally returns to visit its old trainer.
While in training to become a Frontier Brain, Ash passed through Cerulean City, where he finally told Misty how he felt about her. Since the feeling was mutual, the two consummated their relationship.
While on a trip to the Cerulean Cave, she helped a trainer catch a Poliwhirl and gave him a Water Stone to help it evolve into Poliwrath. To thank her, the trainer gave Misty his Jynx, which through hard work and training became one of her strongest Pokémon.
Like her sisters, Misty is a huge fan of Juan, the Sootopolis City Gym Leader from the Hoenn region, as well as his former protégé, Pokémon Master and Top Coordinator Wallace. During a visit to the Cerulean Gym while on a tour in Kanto, Misty challenged Wallace to a battle. While her Gyarados and Corsola lost to Wallace’s Poliwrath, Misty’s Psyduck was able to use its psychic powers and newly-learned Scald attack to defeat Poliwrath. Unfortunately, her Psyduck was no match for Wallace’s Swampert, who knocked out Psyduck with a single Hydro Cannon attack.
In recognition of her skills as a trainer and her love of Water-type Pokémon, Misty was given a Squirtle, Totodile, Mudkip, Piplup, and Oshawott by the Pokémon Professors with the blessings of the Pokémon League.
Misty’s Pokémon Edit
Misty’s Seaking♀ Edit
One of Misty’s first Pokémon, she frequently used Goldeen while battling in or near the water. Unfortunately, Goldeen was not very good while on dry land, which left its battle experience somewhat lacking.
While serving as the Cerulean City Gym Leader after her journey through Kanto and Johto, Misty’s Goldeen evolved into Seaking during the middle of a gym match. As a Seaking, it is much more powerful than Goldeen, and can hold its own in a battle while on land (although it is clearly superior in the water).
Over the years, Seaking has learned a number of attacks, including Agility, Horn Attack, Fury Attack, Water Gun, Supersonic, and Horn Drill. Currently, Seaking knows Waterfall, Aqua Ring, Poison Jab, and Megahorn. Seaking’s Ability is Swift Swim, which increases its speed in the rain.
Misty’s Starmie Edit
One of Misty’s first Pokémon, she frequently used Staryu due to its ability to battle in the water and on land. It gained valuable experience during Misty’s journey through Kanto, the Orange Islands, and Johto.
While serving as the Cerulean City Gym Leader, Misty used a Water Stone to evolve Staryu into Starmie. Since its evolution, Starmie has been trained in various attacks that it was unable to utilize as a Staryu.
Over the years, Starmie has learned a number of attacks, including Swift, Water Gun, Tackle, Double-Edge, Rapid Spin, and BubbleBeam. Currently, Starmie knows Hydro Pump, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, and Psychic. Starmie’s Ability is Natural Cure, which heals any status ailment upon switching out.
Misty’s Kingdra♂ Edit
One of Misty’s first Pokémon, she found Horsea in Porta Vista and invited it to join her on her journey. Unfortunately, because of its young age and lack of ability to battle on land, Horsea wasn’t one of Misty’s more powerful Pokémon.
While passing by Cerulean City, Misty left Horsea at the Cerulean Gym after it fell ill because it wasn’t getting enough exercise. After Misty’s journey through Kanto, the Orange Islands, and Johto, she returned to Cerulean City and was reinstated as the Gym Leader. Now able to spend more time with Horsea and give it some proper training, Horsea was able to evolve into Seadra.
As a Seadra, it was much more comfortable battling on land than it was as a Horsea, not to mention more powerful than Horsea. It gave many gym challengers a run for their money, and before long, Seadra evolved into Kingdra. Now a Water- and Dragon-type Pokémon, Kingdra is another of Misty’s powerhouse Pokémon.
Over the years, Kingdra has learned a few attacks, including Bubble and SmokeScreen. Currently, Kingdra knows Brine, Double Team, Flash Cannon, and Draco Meteor, which Kingdra learned upon its evolution. Kingdra’s Ability is Sniper, which powers up its critical hits.
Misty’s Psyduck♂ Edit
A Water-type Pokémon with a permanent headache, Misty inadvertently captured Psyduck in HopHopHop Town. Dimwitted and absent-minded, Psyduck often comes out of its Poké Ball, and sometimes comes out for a battle when Misty would prefer to use a different Pokémon. It is perpetually confused, and even when it summons powerful moves, it appears confused about how it pulled such a feat off.
Psyduck knows several powerful Psychic-type attacks (Disable, Confusion, and later Psychic), but can only use them when its headache is severe. Psyduck also cannot swim, which is unusual for its species, and will panic and flail about when not in shallow water. Under Misty’s training, Psyduck finally mastered a Water-type attack: Scald. However, whenever it uses Scald, Psyduck also burns its own mouth, much to Misty’s chagrin.
After her Gyarados and Corsola lost to Wallace’s Poliwrath during an exhibition match at the Cerulean Gym, Misty sent out Psyduck as her last Pokémon. After its headache got severe enough, Psyduck was able to use its Psychic attack to knock out Poliwrath, earning Misty her first victory over the Hoenn League Champion. Unfortunately, Psyduck was defeated in one hit from Wallace’s second Pokémon, Swampert.
Psyduck seems to truly love and care for Misty. Despite its faults, it always tries to be there for her, whether she likes it or not. Misty constantly complains about Psyduck’s faults, but she actually deeply cares for Psyduck – she has never considered getting rid of it, though it has been suggested several times and she instantly shoots down such ideas.
Over the years, Psyduck has learned a number of attacks, including Scratch, Tail Whip, Disable, Confusion, Water Gun, and Psychic. Currently, Psyduck knows Disable, Fury Swipes, Psychic, and Scald. Psyduck’s Ability is Cloud Nine, which prevents all effects of weather.
Misty’s Togetic♀ Edit
Misty’s Politoed♂ Edit
Captured as a Poliwag in the Orange Islands, it became a valued member of Misty’s team. It evolved into Poliwhirl during a match against Ash’s Bulbasaur. After battling against a trainer’s Poliwrath, Misty considered evolving Poliwhirl and began looking for a Water Stone; however, Poliwhirl had found Ash’s King’s Rock, and during a battle with Team Rocket, it used the King’s Rock to evolve into Politoed.
As a Politoed, it is a dancer; it’s very friendly, cheerful, enthusiastic, and likes to help people.
Over the years, Politoed has learned a number of attacks, including Water Gun, DoubleSlap, Bubble, Body Slam, Mega Punch, Tackle, Headbutt, and Swagger. Currently, Politoed knows Belly Drum, Waterfall, Earthquake, and Body Slam. Politoed’s Ability is Water Absorb, which heals the user’s health when hit with a Water-type attack.
Misty’s Corsola♀ Edit
A Water- and Rock-type Pokémon from the Whirl Islands, Misty was able to capture a wild Corsola with a Lure Ball she received from Kurt, the Poké Ball smith. It then became one of Misty’s most used Pokémon, and she continued to use it regularly throughout her travels in the Johto region, including the Whirl Cup, and later as a Gym Leader.
Misty used Corsola as her second Pokémon in her three-on-three exhibition match against Wallace, the Hoenn League Champion, at the Cerulean Gym. Unfortunately, Corsola didn’t stand a chance against Wallace’s Poliwrath, although it weakened the champion’s Pokémon enough for Psyduck to knock it out.
Over the years, Corsola has learned a number of attacks, including Tackle, Recover, Spike Cannon, Mirror Coat, and BubbleBeam. Currently, Corsola knows BubbleBeam, Power Gem, Mirror Coat, and Recover. Corsola’s Ability is Natural Cure, which heals any status ailment upon switching out.
Misty’s Gyarados♂ Edit
Shortly before Misty returned to Cerulean City after her journey through the Kanto and Johto regions, one of the Cerulean Gym’s Magikarp evolved into Gyarados and started causing chaos. Misty eventually befriended and then captured Gyarados, and it has since become her strongest Pokémon in terms of raw power.
Misty used Gyarados as her first Pokémon in her three-on-three exhibition match against Wallace, the Hoenn League Champion, at the Cerulean Gym. Wallace and his Poliwrath proved too tough for Gyarados, however, and after a hard-fought battle, Poliwrath emerged victorious over the Atrocious Pokémon.
Over the years, Gyarados has learned a number of attacks, including Headbutt, Whirlpool, Hydro Pump, Protect, Hyper Beam, and Flamethrower. Currently, Gyarados knows Hydro Pump, Protect, Flamethrower, and Hyper Beam. Gyarados’s Ability is Intimidate, which lowers its opponent’s attack stat when it emerges for battle.
Misty’s Luvdisc “Caserin”♂ Edit
Caserin and its mate, Luverin, are two Luvdisc acquired by the Cerulean Gym and raised by Misty and her older sister, Daisy, respectively. Under Misty’s command, Caserin, the male Luvdisc, was the better battler of the two, and knew many powerful attacks.
Currently, Caserin knows Water Pulse, Ice Beam, Double Team, and Hyper Beam. Caserin’s Ability is Swift Swim, which increases its speed in the rain.
Misty’s Azumarill♀ Edit
The child of her close friend Tracey’s Marill, Misty was given Azumarill’s egg and then raised it since it was an Azurill. Azurill didn’t have a lot of battle experience, but it was able to evolve thanks to Misty’s love and friendship. After its evolution, Misty used Marill and then Azumarill as a frequent battler during her gym matches.
Since it hatched, Azumarill has used a few attacks, including Water Gun, Refresh, and Bubble. Currently, Azumarill knows Aqua Ring, Superpower, Ice Punch, and Hydro Pump. Azumarill’s Ability is Huge Power, which doubles its Attack stat.
Misty’s Kingler♀ Edit
One of Misty’s Pokémon that populates the Cerulean City Gym, she caught Krabby with a Lure Ball she received from Kurt, the Poké Ball smith, while fishing, and then raised it to evolve into Kingler. Although Misty doesn’t often use Kingler in her gym battles or her travels, she nonetheless is proud of and loves her Water-type Pokémon.
Currently, Kingler knows Crabhammer, ViceGrip, Metal Claw, and Icy Wind. Kingler’s Ability is Hyper Cutter, which prevents its Attack stat from being reduced.
Misty’s Jynx♀ Edit
While on a trip to the Cerulean Cave, Misty helped a trainer catch a Poliwhirl and gave him a Water Stone to help it evolve into Poliwrath. To thank her, the trainer gave Misty his Jynx. With some hard work and dedication, Jynx became one of Misty’s powerhouse Pokémon, and a surprise opponent for her Cerulean City Gym challengers, who often mistook Misty for being a Water-type-only Pokémon trainer.
Currently, Jynx knows Lovely Kiss, Blizzard, Psychic, and Brick Break. Jynx’s Ability is Forewarn, which alerts it to its opponent’s strongest move.
Misty’s Squirtle♂ Edit
Misty’s Totodile♂ Edit
Misty’s Mudkip♂ Edit
Misty’s Piplup♂ Edit
Misty’s Oshawott♂ Edit
Dr. Brock Harrison, M.D., Pokémon Breeder Edit
After his Pokémon journey through Sinnoh, Brock returned to Pewter City, where he passed his Pokémon medical course and became a licensed Pokémon physician. Upon his return, he was reunited with his Pokémon, Steelix, Golem (evolved from his Geodude), Crobat, Forretress, Ludicolo, and his newly-evolved Swampert, in addition to his Sinnoh region Pokémon, Sudowoodo, Croagunk, and Blissey (formerly Chansey). In the five years since his return to Kanto, Brock has added a few more Pokémon to his collection, including Sandshrew, Paras, Diglett, and Aron (all of which have subsequently evolved into Sandslash, Parasect, Dugtrio, and Lairon, respectively), Clefairy, Stantler, and Shuckle.
Brock’s father, Flint, once again took over the Pewter Gym when his younger brother, Forrest, left on his Pokémon journey with a Rhyhorn some four years ago. Brock has also been known to pitch in and help out around the Gym whenever he was needed, including taking on the occasional challenger.
While passing through Pewter City, Hoenn League Champion Steven Stone came upon the Pewter City Pokémon Breeding Center. Steven was impressed by the young Pokémon Breeder/Doctor, and after they foiled an attempt on the Pewter City Museum of Science by Pokémon thieves looking for revived Fossil Pokémon, Steven left a young Aron in Brock’s care. The museum also entrusted Brock with two newly-revived Fossil Pokémon, Omanyte and Kabuto.
Brock has also reunited with Suzy, the Pokémon Breeder who gave him his Vulpix, and the two have been dating exclusively ever since. Together, the two of them run the Pewter City Pokémon Breeding Center, where they raise young and recently hatched Pokémon. Among the Pokémon in their care are Caterpie, Weedle, Pidgey, Rattata, Vulpix, Oddish, Poliwag, Geodude, Gastly, Horsea, Eevee, Pichu (who was later given to Ash), Cleffa, Igglybuff, Togepi, Teddiursa, Tyrogue, Smoochum, Elekid, Magby, Wurmple, Azurill, Wynaut, Budew, Burmy, Chingling, Bonsly, Mime Jr., Happiny, Munchlax, Riolu, and Mantyke. He and Suzy sometimes borrow each other’s Pokémon if and when the need arises.
Still, not even being in a serious and committed relationship could stop Brock from hitting on Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny. Fortunately for him, Pewter City’s Joy and Jenny both know Brock, and don’t take his flirting seriously.
Brock’s Pokémon Edit
Brock’s Steelix♂ Edit
Brock’s first and strongest Pokémon, he was given Onix by his father, Flint, on his tenth birthday. When Brock took over the Pewter City Gym from his dad, Onix became his signature Pokémon. Steelix is very intimidating and serious, but it’s tough exterior hides a sensitive interior. As a Pokémon Breeder, Brock often polished it to improve its appearance and happiness.
While traveling with Ash, Brock’s Onix grew in power and experience, even to the point of being able to withstand a Water-type attack where it previously flinched away from water. By the time Brock returned to Pewter City after journeying with Ash through the Johto League, Onix was strong enough to take on Brock’s stepmother Lola’s Mantine. Brock subsequently left Onix, along with Geodude and Crobat, in the care of his younger brother, Forrest, who took over as Leader of the Pewter Gym after Flint once again vacated the position.
While under Forrest’s care, Onix evolved into Steelix, and learned some very powerful attacks. After Brock returned from Sinnoh to become a Pokémon Doctor, Steelix, along with Brock’s other Pokémon at the Pewter Gym, returned to his party. Around the same time, Brock transferred Steelix from a regular Poké Ball into a Heavy Ball he received from Kurt, the Poké Ball smith, to accommodate Steelix’s size and weight. Steelix has defeated numerous powerful opponents, including the Iron-Masked Marauder’s Tyranitar, Lola’s Mantine, and Team Rocket’s (stolen) Charizard and Aggron (in a double battle with Ash’s Donphan).
Over the years, Steelix has learned many attacks, including Tackle, Bind, Dig, Rock Throw, Sandstorm, Slam, Iron Tail, and DragonBreath. Currently, Steelix knows Stone Edge, Earthquake, DragonBreath, and Iron Tail. Steelix’s Ability is Sturdy, which prevents it from being knocked out with one attack.
Brock’s Golem♂ Edit
A longtime friend and partner to Brock, Golem was the second Pokémon he received. When Brock’s father, Flint, abandoned the Pewter Gym, he left a young Geodude in his son’s care. As a Pokémon Breeder, Brock often polished it to improve its appearance and happiness.
While traveling with Ash, Brock’s Geodude grew in power and experience. When Brock returned to Pewter City after journeying with Ash through the Johto League, he left Geodude, along with Onix and Crobat, in the care of his younger brother, Forrest, who took over as Leader of the Pewter Gym after Flint once again vacated the position.
While under Forrest’s care, Geodude evolved into Graveler, and learned some very powerful attacks. After Brock returned from Sinnoh to become a Pokémon Doctor, Graveler, along with Brock’s other Pokémon at the Pewter Gym, returned to his party. Upon Brock’s return to Pewter City, Graveler was so happy it evolved into Golem. Around the same time, Brock transferred Golem from a regular Poké Ball into a Heavy Ball he received from Kurt, the Poké Ball smith, to accommodate Steelix’s size and weight.
Over the years, Golem has learned many attacks, including Seismic Toss, Tackle, Dig, Mega Punch, and Sandstorm. Currently, Golem knows Rock Polish, Stone Edge, Earthquake, and Mega Punch. Golem’s Ability is Sturdy, which prevents it from being knocked out with one attack.
Brock’s Crobat♂ Edit
Brock’s Forretress♂ Edit
Brock’s Ludicolo♂ Edit
Brock’s Swampert♂ Edit
One of Brock’s strongest Pokémon, he caught Mudkip after helping it save a group of newly-hatched Mudkip. Together, the two made a good pair, and Mudkip eventually evolved into Marshtomp.
While stopping in Pewter City on his way to the Sinnoh region, Brock left Marshtomp in the care of his younger brother, Forrest, the current Pewter City Gym Leader.
While under Forrest’s care, Marshtomp evolved into Swampert, and learned some very powerful attacks. After Brock returned from Sinnoh to become a Pokémon Doctor, Swampert, along with Brock’s other Pokémon at the Pewter Gym, returned to his party.
Over the years, Swampert has learned many attacks, including Water Gun, Mud Shot, Protect, and Tackle. Currently, Swampert knows Stealth Rock, Earthquake, Ice Beam, and Hydro Cannon, which Swampert learned upon its evolution. Swampert’s Ability is Torrent, which increases the power of Water-type attacks when its weakened.
Brock’s Sudowoodo♂ Edit
One of Brock’s Rock-type Pokémon, he captured Bonsly at a Pokémon Ninja School near Fuchsia City. Bonsly was newly-hatched, and was often needy and child-like. It evolved into Sudowoodo after learning Mimic. Upon its evolution, Sudowoodo has matured and upbeat, and is no longer a crybaby.
After Brock returned from Sinnoh to become a Pokémon Doctor, Sudowoodo was introduced to Brock’s other Pokémon, and he quickly became friends with Steelix and Golem, his other Rock-type Pokémon. In addition Sudowoodo often acts as an older sibling to Blissey (who Sudowoodo has known since it was a Happiny) and the young Pokémon of the Pewter City Breeding Center.
Over the years, Sudowoodo has learned many attacks, including Fake Tears, Double-Edge, Flail, Mimic, and Hammer Arm. Currently, Sudowoodo knows Double-Edge, Mimic, Hammer Arm, and Wood Hammer. Sudowoodo’s Ability is Rock Head, which prevents recoil damage.
Brock’s Croagunk♂ Edit
Brock’s Blissey♀ Edit
Brock won a Pokémon Egg in a Pokémon cosplay contest that hatched into a Happiny. Like most baby Pokémon, Happiny bonded very quickly to Brock; but unlike most baby Pokémon, it had powerful Pound and Strength attacks.
Near the very end of Brock’s Sinnoh journey, Happiny evolved into Chansey in order to help a group of poisoned Pokémon, and was able to heal them with a newly-learned Softboiled attack.
After Brock returned from Sinnoh to become a Pokémon Doctor, Chansey was introduced to Brock’s other Pokémon. After a few months in Pewter City, Chansey used its trainer’s love and friendship to evolve into Blissey. It maintains a close, sibling-like relationship with Sudowoodo, and has taken a big-sister role to the young Pokémon of the Pewter City Breeding Center.
Over the years, Blissey has learned some attacks, including Pound, Secret Power, and Softboiled. Currently, Blissey knows Rock Slide, Egg Bomb, Zen Headbutt, and Softboiled. Blissey’s Ability is Serene Grace, which doubles the chances of enabling a move’s additional effect.

Captured as a Sandshrew at Mt. Moon, Brock was pleased to be able to obtain another Ground-type Pokémon to help out around the Pewter Gym.
Currently, Sandslash knows Sandstorm, Slash, Poison Jab, and Earth Power. Sandslash’s Ability is Sand Veil, which boosts its evasion in a sandstorm.
Brock’s Parasect♂ Edit

Brock’s Lairon♂ Edit
While passing through Pewter City, Hoenn League Champion Steven Stone came upon the Pewter City Pokémon Breeding Center. Steven was impressed by the young Pokémon Breeder/Doctor, and after they foiled an attempt on the Pewter City Museum of Science by Pokémon thieves looking for revived Fossil Pokémon, Steven left a young Aron in Brock’s care. Brock raised Aron with love and care, and it quickly evolved into Lairon, becoming a powerhouse Pokémon.
Currently, Lairon knows Iron Head, Rock Slide, Dragon Rush, and Magnet Rise. Lairon’s Ability is Sturdy, which prevents it from being knocked out with one attack.
Brock’s Clefairy♂ Edit
A rare Pokémon, Brock rescued this male Clefairy from Pokémon poachers at Mt. Moon. After Brock and Steelix drove the poachers away, he nursed the injured Pokémon back to health. For his actions, Clefairy offered to accompany Brock as his Pokémon, and was captured in a Moon Ball, which was given to Brock by Kurt, the Poké Ball smith.
Clefairy has become friends with Brock’s Blissey, and often helps out with the young Pokémon of the Pewter City Breeding Center.
Currently, Clefairy knows Metronome, Sing, Body Slam, and Meteor Mash. Clefairy’s Ability is Cute Charm, which infatuates its opposite-gendered foe when Clefairy gets hit by a physical attack or uses a physical attack.

Brock’s Omanyte♂ Edit
Brock’s Kabuto♂ Edit
Tracey Sketchit, Pokémon Watcher Edit
A close friend of Ash Ketchum and a Pokémon Watcher, Tracey Sketchit traveled with him and Misty around the Orange Islands during the time Brock apprenticed with Professor Felina Ivy. Upon returning to Pallet Town, Tracey became Professor Samuel Oak, a world-renowned Pokémon Professor.
Shortly after Ash completed his Pokémon Journey in the Sinnoh region, Tracey took a year’s sabbatical from the professor’s staff to travel and improve his skills as a Pokémon Watcher. He came back refreshed, ready, willing and able to help the professor with anything he needed.
During his journey, Tracey found himself the proud owner of a Butterfree and a special pink Rhyhorn from the Pinkan Island, which–along with his already-captured Venonat, Marill, and Scyther–help him on his quest to become a great Pokémon Watcher. While working at Professor Oak’s lab, Tracey helps the older man care for and raise the Pokémon left by traveling trainers. After his return to Professor Oak, he caught a Growlithe while on an errand for the professor and befriended and then captured an abandoned Farfetch’d.
Each of Tracey’s Pokémon have special skills that assist him in his quest to become a great Pokémon Watcher: both Venonat and Butterfree have amazing powers of sight, while Marill has an acute sense of hearing and Growlithe has a strong sense of smell. Also, Farfetch’d and Butterfree are both capable of flight and Marill is a highly-competent swimmer. Scyther and Rhyhorn aren’t as useful as Pokémon Watcher assistants, but do make excellent battlers.
Tracey’s Pokémon Edit
Tracey’s Venonat♂ Edit
One of Tracey’s first Pokémon, Venonat was used to assist Tracey in his duties as a Pokémon Watcher by using its eyes to scan the area and locate the Pokémon that Tracey is looking for, and sometimes uses its Sleep Powder to prevent the Pokémon from running away. While traveling the Orange Islands with Ash and Misty, Tracey began training Venonat to battle if the need arises.
Currently, Venonat knows Sleep Powder, Psybeam, Signal Beam, and Poison Fang. Venonat’s Ability is Compoundeyes, which raises its move accuracy by 30%.
Tracey’s Marill♂ Edit
One of Tracey’s first Pokémon, Marill was used to assist Tracey in his duties as a Pokémon Watcher by using its ears to hear Pokémon from far away and locate where they are. While traveling the Orange Islands with Ash and Misty, Tracey began training Marill to battle if the need arises.
While at Professor Oak’s lab, Marill mated with another Marill, and Tracey gave the Azurill egg to Misty, who raised Azurill into a powerful Azumarill.
Currently, Marill knows Water Gun, Ice Beam, Iron Tail, and Hyper Voice. Marill’s Ability is Huge Power, which doubles its Attack stat.
Tracey’s Scyther♂ Edit
The former leader of a swarm of Scyther, Tracey came across an injured Scyther after it was defeated by a younger Scyther. After being nursed back to health, Scyther joined Tracey and his friends on their Pokémon journey. Scyther is also a friend of Ash’s Charizard.
Easily Tracey’s strongest Pokémon (and his one Pokémon that doesn’t assist him as a Pokémon Watcher), Scyther is also old and is easily tired, and Tracey tries hard not to push it. While on his sabbatical from Professor Oak’s lab, Tracey captured a Rhyhorn on Pinkan Island to assist Scyther as a battling partner.
Over the years, Scyther has learned many attacks, including Swords Dance, Double Team, Slash, Skull Bash, Quick Attack, and Cut. Currently, Scyther knows Swords Dance, Double Team, Slash, and X-Scissor. Scyther’s Ability is Swarm, which increases the power of Bug-type attacks when its weakened. Due to its age and health, Swarm is constantly activated by Scyther in battle.
Tracey’s Butterfree♂ Edit
Obtained during his sabbatical from Professor Oak’s lab, Butterfree was captured on Valencia Island, and it has the physical characteristics of Butterfree that reside on the Orange Islands. Like Venonat, Butterfree assists Tracey in his duties as a Pokémon Watcher by using its eyes to scan the area and locate the Pokémon that Tracey is looking for.
Currently, Butterfree knows Bug Buzz, Aerial Ace, Energy Ball, and Psybeam. Butterfree’s Ability is Compoundeyes, which raises its move accuracy by 30%.
Tracey’s Rhyhorn♂ Edit
Tracey’s secondary powerhouse (next to Scyther), he captured a Rhyhorn on Pinkan Island during his sabbatical from Professor Oak’s lab. Due to Scyther’s age and health, Tracey felt that he needed another battling Pokémon, and was pleased to capture Rhyhorn. Rhyhorn and Scyther get along well, and the two make excellent battle partners, with Scyther, a former swarm leader, making tactical moves while Rhyhorn uses its brute strength to power on through any opponent.
Due to the amount of time Rhyhorn spent on Pinkan Island (it was hatched and raised there), it no longer needs to constantly eat Pinkan berries to maintain its pink coloring; they do remain Rhyhorn’s favorite food, and Tracey made a deal with the Pinkan Island’s Officer Jenny to have them shipped to Pallet Town.
Currently, Rhyhorn knows Take Down, Bulldoze, Rock Blast, and Megahorn. Rhyhorn’s Ability is Rock Head, which prevents recoil damage.
Tracey’s Growlithe♂ Edit
Found on Kanto Route 7 while traveling to Saffron City on business for Professor Oak, Tracey was excited for a chance to capture a Growlithe, because it would be a tremendous asset to a Pokémon Watcher. With the aide of his Rhyhorn, Tracey was able to defeat and catch Growlithe, and train it to assist him in his duties as a Pokémon Watcher by using its sense of smell and speed to locate the Pokémon Tracey is looking for.
Currently, Growlithe knows Odor Sleuth, Agility, Bite, and Flamethrower. Growlithe’s Ability is Intimidate, which lowers its opponent’s attack stat when it emerges for battle.
Tracey’s Farfetch’d♂ Edit
A Flying-type Pokémon, Tracey found Farfetch’d injured and abandoned outside of Pallet Town. Like he did before with Scyther, Tracey was able to earn Farfetch’d’s trust and friendship by being a good Pokémon trainer. As a Pokémon Watcher, Tracey was pleased to capture Farfetch’d in order to help him scout out new locations and Pokémon for him to watch and sketch.
Currently, Farfetch’d knows Aerial Ace, Night Slash, Poison Jab, and Swords Dance. Farfetch’d’s Ability is Keen Eye, which prevents it from losing its accuracy.

May has continued on her journey to become a great Pokémon Coordinator; she has added new friends to her party and has continued to astound Pokémon Contest judges and rivals alike where her masterful combinations and tactics, culminating in victory at the Hoenn Grand Festival, which earned her the title of Top Coordinator.
In the intervening years, May’s Pokémon lineup has expanded to include a Ledian, Flaaffy, Miltank, Hitmonchan, Nosepass, Loudred, and Altaria, along with her Blaziken, Beautifly, Venusaur, Munchlax, and Glaceon; in addition, May’s Skitty and Wartortle have both evolved into Delcatty and Blastoise, respectively. Whenever May isn’t traveling with one of her Pokémon, they reside at the Petalburg City Gym, where May’s parents, Norman and Caroline, take care of them.
May maintains her friendly rivalry with her fellow Coordinators Drew, Harley, Robert, Solidad, and Dawn, all of whom have all gotten better as she has.
May’s Pokémon Edit
May’s Blaziken♂ Edit
May’s Starter Pokémon given to her by Professor Birch in Littleroot Town, Blaziken has been instrumental in May’s victories as a Pokémon Coordinator.
Blaziken has defeated numerous powerful opponents, including Kelly’s Grumpig, Jeremy’s Venusaur, Brianna’s Vibrava, Drew’s Absol, and tied against Ash’s Sceptile.
Over the years, Blaziken has learned many attacks, including Peck, Ember, Quick Attack, Fire Spin, Sky Uppercut, Mega Kick, Flamethrower, Overheat, and Blaze Kick.

May’s Beautifly♀ Edit
Wanting a Beautifly since the first time she saw one perform in a Pokémon Contest, May went out and caught herself a Wurmple. It evolved into Silcoon while battling Jessie of Team Rocket’s Wurmple, which also evolved into Cascoon. A few days later, both Silcoon and Cascoon evolved in battle again, to Beautifly and Dustox respectively.
Beautifly is one of May’s most experienced Contest participants, and has never let her down.

May’s Delcatty♀ Edit
One of May’s most distinguished contest participants

Because May’s traveling companion, Ash, also had a Bulbasaur, the two Grass-type Pokémon quickly became friends, albeit with some differences (most notably gender and their distinctive attacks).
Over the years, Venusaur has learned many attacks, including Vine Whip, Tackle, Razor Leaf, and Petal Dance. Currently, Venusaur knows Leech Seed, Magical Leaf, Petal Dance, and Synthesis. Venusaur’s Ability is Overgrow, which increases the power of Grass-type attacks when its weakened.

The first Pokémon May caught in the Johto region, she was able to battle Ledyba with her Beautifly. She used Ledyba during her first Johto Contest, but it was defeated. As she continued her journey, Ledyba improved its Contest abilities, and it eventually evolved into Ledian.
Ledian engages in a friendly rivalry with May’s brother Max’s Breloom.
Currently, Ledian knows Comet Punch, Double Team, Silver Wind, and Swift. Ledian’s Ability is Swarm, which increases the power of Bug-type attacks when its weakened.
May’s Flaaffy♀ Edit
Found during her journey through the Johto region, May was able to capture Mareep outside of Ecruteak City. She was proud to capture Mareep, as while it wasn’t the best battler, it was useful for Pokémon Contests. Under May’s training, Mareep evolved into Flaaffy.
Currently, Flaaffy knows Charge, Thunder Wave, Cotton Spore, and Thunderbolt. Flaaffy’s Ability is Static, which paralyzes its foe when Flaaffy gets hit by a physical attack or uses a physical attack.
May’s Miltank♀ Edit
May’s third Pokémon captured in the Johto region, she found Miltank on Route 39 near Olivine City. Miltank has more power than many of May’s Pokémon, comparable to her Venusaur and Blastoise; its strength as a battler is its edge as a Contest contestant.
Currently, Miltank knows Stomp, Body Slam, Zen Headbutt, and Milk Drink. Miltank’s Ability is Thick Fat, which gives it heat and cold protection, halving the power of Ice- and Fire-type attacks.
May’s Hitmonchan♂ Edit
Won by May in a Fighting-type Pokémon contest using her Blaziken, Hitmonchan has become a powerful member of her team. May utilizes Hitmonchan’s flashy fighting style to appeal to the Contest judges and defeat her opponents.
Currently, Hitmonchan knows Bulk Up, Detect, Mega Punch, and Drain Punch. Hitmonchan’s Ability is Iron Fist, which increases the power of all punching techniques.
May’s Nosepass♀ Edit
Captured in the Granite Cave on her second journey throughout her home region of Hoenn, Nosepass has become a powerful member of May’s team.
Currently, Nosepass knows Discharge, Earth Power, Power Gem, and Wide Guard. Nosepass’s Ability is Sturdy, which prevents it from being knocked out with one attack.
May’s Loudred♂ Edit
Captured as a Whismur on her second journey throughout her home region of Hoenn, Loudred has become a powerful member of May’s team.
May’s Altaria♀ Edit
Captured as a Swablu on her second journey throughout her home region of Hoenn, Altaria has become a powerful member of May’s team.
Max Maple, Pokémon Trainer Edit
May’s younger brother, Max, has begun a Pokémon journey of his own, starting with a Ralts (which has since evolved into a Gardevoir) and now has over three dozen Pokémon–even more than his older sister, something he never fails to remind her of. In addition to his regular Pokémon training, Max frequently competes in Pokémon Contests and other competitions for the experience. As his battle style, Max prefers to use strategy than brute strength, something that serves him well against many trainers, but also leaves him at risk for certain trainers who like to hit hard and fast (something that cost him during the Ever Grande Conference).
After earning 8 badges, Max competed in the Hoenn League’s Ever Grand Conference and made it to the Top 8 before being defeated. Although disappointed, the loss only made him want to try harder. He subsequently began another journey, this time in the Kanto region.
Not long after his loss at the Ever Grande Conference, Max met and was honored to battle against Glacia of the Hoenn Elite Four. Although he worked out a strategy and chose a team of Pokémon that would be super-effective against Ice-types, Glacia's powerful Glalie had no problems sweeping the match. This left Max feeling humiliated, as if all of his hard work was amounting to nothing if he couldn't even defeat one Ice-type using his Camerupt, Banette, Breloom, and Gardevoir (four of his strongest Pokémon), but Glacia pointed out that despite his vast knowledge and talent for somebody his age, Max was still young and that she and Glalie had been training together longer than he’d even been alive. She assured him that with time, patience, and determination, Max would continue to grow stronger and that one day, they would have a rematch and he would be able to stand a much better chance than he did at the moment.
Max has captured and raised over 30 Pokémon, including Gardevoir, Sceptile, Mightyena, Linoone, Pelipper, Breloom, Medicham, Manectric, Swalot, Sharpedo, Camerupt, Spinda, Claydol, Banette, Tropius, and more. Just before the Ever Grand Conference, Max was given one of Ash’s Tauros.
Max’s Pokémon Edit
Max’s Gardevoir♂ Edit
One of Max’s most powerful Pokémon, he first met Ralts when it was sick with pneumonia. Although Ralts wanted to travel with him, Max wasn’t ready to be a Pokémon trainer, but promised to come back for it once he was.
Max fulfilled that promise upon starting his Pokémon journey. With Ralts on his team, Max was able to defeat Brawly, the Dewford Town Gym Leader, without much difficulty. Immediately upon defeating Brawly’s Makuhita, Ralts evolved into Kirlia.
While on his journey, Max found a Dawn Stone, and offered Kirlia a choice of using the Stone to evolve into a Gallade or evolving naturally into a Gardevoir. It didn’t matter, however, as during Kirlia’s next battle, it evolved into Gardevoir.
Gardevoir has defeated numerous powerful opponents, including Roxanne’s Anorith, Brawly’s Machop and Makuhita, Flannery’s Numel, Tate and Liza’s Lunatone and Solrock (in a double battle with Mightyena), and Juan’s Luvdisc.
Gardevoir was Max’s final choice to battle Elite Four member Glacia’s powerful Glalie, who had already knocked out Camerupt, Banette, and Breloom. Unfortunately, not even Gardevoir could stand up to Glalie, and fell to its super-powerful Freeze-Dry attack.
Currently, Gardevoir knows Double Team, Magical Leaf, Calm Mind, and Psychic. Gardevoir’s Ability is Trace, which copies the Ability of its opponent.
Max’s Sceptile♂ Edit
Max’s Starter Pokémon given to him by Professor Birch in Littleroot Town.
Max’s Mightyena♂ Edit
One of the first Pokémon captured by Max.
Max’s Breloom♂ Edit
One of Max’s most powerful Pokémon, he first met Shroomish in the Petalburg Forest. Once Max was able to catch it, it quickly became one of his best friends, and after evolving into Breloom, it became a powerhouse.
Breloom is engaged in a friendly rivalry with Max’s sister May’s Ledian.
Breloom has defeated numerous powerful opponents, including Roxanne’s Geodude, Wattson’s Magneton, and Juan’s Seaking and Lanturn (in a double battle with Mightyena) and Whiscash.
During Max’s battle against the Elite Four member Glacia’s powerful Glalie, he chose Breloom as his third Pokémon, which was a calculated risk as being part Grass-type rendered it vulnerable but part Fighting-type made it highly effective against Glalie. Despite being unable to lock onto Glalie with its Leech Seed attack thanks to Protect, Breloom was able to land a super-effective Drain Punch on the Ice-type Pokémon; however, that wasn’t enough as Glalie proceeded to knock out Breloom with a super-effective Ice Shard attack.
Currently, Breloom knows Spore, Leech Seed, Giga Drain, and Drain Punch. Breloom’s Ability is Effect Spore, which paralyzes, puts to sleep, or poisons its foe when it gets hit by or uses a physical attack.
Max’s Camerupt♂ Edit
Captured as a Numel outside of Lavaridge Town, Max tried to take a page from Ash's playbook and use his newly-acquired Fire-type Pokémon against Flannery, the Lavaridge Gym Leader. Unfortunately, Numel was no match for Flannery's more experienced Numel.
Despite this early loss, Max continued to raise Numel with love and friendship, and it was able to evolve into a powerful Camerupt.
When Max challenged Glacia of the Hoenn Elite Four to a battle, he selected Camerupt as his first Pokémon. However, despite being super-effective against Ice-type Pokémon, Camerupt was unable to defeat Glacia’s Glalie.
Currently, Camerupt knows Eruption, Earthquake, Lava Plume, and Yawn. Camerupt’s Ability is Solid Rock, which reduces the damage from super-effective attacks.
Max’s Tauros♂ Edit
Given to Max by Ash Ketchum prior to the Ever Grande Conference
Dawn Berlitz, Pokémon Coordinator Edit
Like May, Dawn has also kept working toward her goal to become a Top Pokémon Coordinator. With her partner and best friend, Piplup, and her other Pokémon–Lopunny, Pachirisu, Mamoswine, Typhlosion, Togekiss, and new faces Grimer, Ponyta, Meditite, Chatot, Cherrim, and Froslass–Dawn is considered to be a top-notch Coordinator.
Zoey, Ursula, Kenny, Nando, and her mother Johanna all continue to push her to her limits and beyond, as the rivalries between them grow with each contest.
Dawn’s Pokémon Edit
Dawn’s Piplup♂ Edit
Dawn’s Starter Pokémon, she received Piplup from Professor Rowan in Sandgem Town. Although it started off weak, Dawn trained Piplup well enough that it became her most prized Pokémon. Although Piplup is at a high enough level to evolve into Prinplup and Empoleon, it refuses to evolve.
Piplup lacks the power of Dawn’s Mamoswine and Typhlosion, but it is exceptional when it comes to Pokémon Contests, winning Dawn many Ribbons.
Over the years, Piplup has learned many attacks, including BubbleBeam, Peck, Bide, Whirlpool, Hydro Pump, Drill Peck, Ice Beam, and Headbutt. Currently, Piplup knows Hydro Pump, Drill Peck, Ice Beam, and Aqua Ring. Piplup’s Ability is Torrent, which increases the power of Water-type attacks when its weakened. It also carries an Everstone which prevents it from evolving.
Dawn’s Lopunny♀ Edit
One of Dawn’s most distinguished contest participants; she caught Lopunny as a Buneary on Route 202 in Sinnoh. With numerous contests under her belt and dozens of encounters with Team Rocket, Dawn’s Buneary eventually evolved into Lopunny, which gave it a power boost and a little extra appeal.
As a Buneary, Lopunny nursed a crush on Ash’s Pikachu, although the feelings weren’t quite mutual. After its evolution, Lopunny’s crush dissipated somewhat, although it still thinks of Pikachu fondly.
Over the years, Lopunny has learned a few attacks, including Bounce, Ice Beam, and Dizzy Punch. Currently, Lopunny knows Bounce, Dizzy Punch, Ice Beam, and Giga Impact, which Lopunny learned upon its evolution. Lopunny’s Ability is Cute Charm, which infatuates its (male) foe when it gets hit by or uses a physical attack.
Dawn’s Pachirisu♀ Edit
One of Dawn’s most distinguished contest participants
Dawn’s Ambipom♀ Edit
Dawn’s Mamoswine♂ Edit
The powerhouse of Dawn’s team, Mamoswine was captured as a Swinub. Under Dawn’s command, it was able to evolve into a Piloswine and then Mamoswine, but like Ash’s Charizard, it took a while for Mamoswine to obey Dawn’s orders in battle.
Over the years, Mamoswine has learned a number of attacks, including Take Down, Ice Shard, Dig, Ancient Power, Hidden Power, and Ice Fang. Currently, Mamoswine knows Ancient Power, Bulldoze, Ice Shard, and Hyper Beam. Mamoswine’s Ability is Oblivious, which renders it immune to infatuation.
Dawn’s Typhlosion♂ Edit
Dawn’s Togekiss♀ Edit
Given to her by Princess Salvia, Togekiss has become one of Dawn’s most distinguished contest participants.
Currently, Togekiss knows Air Slash, Aura Sphere, Safeguard, and Sky Attack. Togekiss’s Ability is Serene Grace, which boosts the likelihood of an attack’s additional effects occurring.
Dawn’s Grimer♀ Edit
A Pokémon from the Pokémon Summer Academy, Dawn had originally trained Grimer during her stay at the school. After completing her first journey with Ash, she returned to the school, where Grimer volunteered to join her on her Pokémon journey. Dawn agreed, and Grimer became a valuable member of her team.
Unfortunately, Grimer found it difficult to participate in Pokémon Contests, because of its nature. Despite this, Dawn continues to train Grimer and its biggest desire is to win a Contest for Dawn.
Currently, Grimer knows Acid Armor, Disable, Mud Bomb, and Sludge Wave. Grimer’s Ability is Stench, which repels wild Pokémon and has a 10% chance of making its opponent flinch in battle.
Dawn’s Ponyta♀ Edit
Captured during her journey through the Kanto region, Ponyta has become one of Dawn’s most prominent Pokémon in the Contest circuit.
Currently, Ponyta knows Bounce, Flame Charge, Stomp, and Wild Charge. Ponyta’s Ability is Flash Fire, which renders it immune to Fire-type attacks and increases the power of its own.
Dawn’s Meditite♀ Edit
Dawn’s Chatot♀ Edit
Dawn’s Cherrim♀ Edit
Dawn’s Froslass♀ Edit
Iris Ryuden, Leader of the Opalucid City Gym Edit
One of Ash’s traveling companions throughout his Unova journey along with Cilan Gardner, Iris Ryuden was born and raised in the Village of Dragons on the outskirts of Opalucid City. Her dream is to one day become a Dragon-type Pokemon Master. She was very impressed (and more than a little jealous) that Ash knew Lance of the Kanto Elite Four personally, and through Ash, she met and battled against Clair, the Blackthorn City Gym Leader from the Johto region.
After the conclusion of Ash’s journey through Unova, Iris returned to the Village of Dragons with some new friends and a whole lot more experience. This experience led Drayden, the Mayor of Opalucid City (and its Gym Leader) to appoint her his assistant. Iris now serves as the Opalucid Gym Leader while Drayden is busy with his other duties (among which is his preparation to challenge the Unova Elite Four in order to gain membership into its august body).

Jessie, James, and Meowth/Team Rocket Edit
Even after all of these years, the Team Rocket trio is still trying to catch Pikachu and work their way into the Boss’s good graces…in the meantime, Jessie continues to participate in Pokémon Contests, James maintains and adds to his impressive bottle cap collection (while also constantly avoiding his would-be fiancée, Jessebelle), Meowth tries to prove that he’s better than any Persian, and all three of them continue their various business ventures to save up money for mecha in order to help them catch Pikachu (not that the mecha are all that helpful, anyways). Their embittered rivalry with fellow Team Rocket members Butch and Cassidy continues to this day.
After Ash became a Frontier Brain, Jessie and James had their first official battle against the Twerp since their first meeting all those years ago. Using their newly-recovered Arbok and Weezing, both of who had advanced in level significantly during their time in the wild, Team Rocket was able to defeat Ash’s Kingler and Muk in a fair fight. Unfortunately, they got greedy and tried to take Ash’s Pokémon as their prize…only to have Pikachu send them blasting off again!
One of the newest additions to Team Rocket’s roster is Jessie’s Magneton and James’s Electrode, both Electric-type Pokémon. Unfortunately for them, neither Magneton nor Electrode was a match for Ash’s Pikachu.
Upon (finally!) completing a task for the Boss (the successful theft of an entire set of evolutionary stones), he had the Team Rocket Delibird bequeath them with two newly-hatched Dragon-type Pokémon – Dratini and Bagon (much to the shock of Cassidy and Butch, who had assumed they were going to get the young Dragon-types). Jessie and James were both ecstatic about their new Pokémon and vowed to raise them just as they had their other Pokémon.
Like Ash, the Team Rocket trio has recovered the Pokémon they’ve released into the wild, in addition to the new Pokémon they were given by Team Rocket Headquarters: Jessie’s team now consists of Arbok, Lickilicky, Wobbuffet, Seviper, Dustox, Yanmega, Swoobat, Jellicent, Gourgeist, Misdreavus, Venomoth, Nidorina, Magneton, and Dratini, and James’s consists of Weezing, Victreebel, Cacturne, Chimecho, Mime Jr., Carnivine, Cofagrigus, Amoonguss, Malamar, Gastly, Parasect, Nidorino, Electrode, and Bagon. Meanwhile, Meowth has done some training to make himself a better-rounded Pokémon, and can now use Slash, Cut, Shadow Claw, and Night Slash.
Team Rocket’s Pokémon Edit
A truly unique Pokémon, Meowth lived on the streets of Hollywood as a member of a gang of Meowth led by a Persian. One day, Meowth came across a female Meowth named Meowzie, who rejected him, saying that he was poor and that she preferred humans, so Meowth attempted to make himself more human-like to make her love him. Thus, he painstakingly taught himself to speak human language and walk upright like a human, sacrificing his ability to learn the signature move of his species, Pay Day. When he approached Meowzie after this transformation, she once again rejected him, calling him a freak. Heartbroken, Meowth remembered the first human word he learned to speak — “rocket” — and was inspired to join Team Rocket.
For a short while, Meowth was Giovanni's “top cat”, but was quickly replaced by a Persian. Since then, he has been teamed up with Jessie and James, and the three of them are known as the “Team Rocket trio”.
Meowth has an ambitious, conniving, and idealistic personality. He has made it his life goal to please Giovanni (or “Boss”, as he and his teammates call Giovanni), and will stop at nothing to capture or steal useful or rare Pokémon, especially Ash’s Pikachu. He is an amorous Pokémon, developing crushes on Meowzie, Cassandra (a human herbalist), May’s Skitty, a wild Skitty, a Glameow, and more.
Since Ash has become a Frontier Brain, Team Rocket’s criminal activities have stalled while they concentrate on other things. Meowth has used his time to do some training, teaching himself new attacks gaining experience in battle. These days, he’s a Pokémon to be reckoned with (although still no match for Pikachu).
Over the years, Meowth has learned a few attacks, including Fury Swipes, Scratch, and Bite. Currently, Meowth knows Slash, Cut, Shadow Claw, and Night Slash. Meowth’s Ability is Technician, which powers up weak attacks. Unfortunately, Meowth never learned of his Ability until after learning new attacks that were incompatible with Technician. Also, because Meowth can speak human language but is a Pokémon, he is useful as a Pokémon translator.
Jessie’s Pokémon Edit
Jessie’s Arbok♂ Edit
Jessie’s first Pokémon, it is very powerful and very well loved. Unfortunately, it is frequently, if not always, defeated by Ash Ketchum and his friends’ Pokémon.
Jessie received Ekans on her 10th birthday. It soon grew in power and experience, and eventually evolved into Arbok. It often fought alongside Jessie’s Lickitung and Wobbuffet and James’ Weezing and Victreebel.
Jessie released Arbok into the wild in the forest near Rustboro City in Hoenn in order for it to protect a herd of Ekans from Pokémon poachers. She eventually returned to reclaim Arbok, as an Ekans had grown powerful enough and evolved, and could now take care of its fellow Pokémon.
Since its return to Jessie’s party (and now residing in an Ultra Ball), Arbok has become her most powerful Pokémon. In their first official Pokémon battle against Ash after all these years, Arbok and Weezing were able to work together and use their newfound strength to defeat Ash’s Kingler and Muk.
Over the years, Arbok has learned many attacks, including Dig, Bite, Wrap, Acid, Glare, Poison Sting, Toxic, Double-Edge, Tackle, Headbutt, and Take Down. Currently, Arbok knows Gunk Shot, Crunch, Dragon Tail, and Hyper Beam. Arbok’s Ability is Intimidate, which lowers its opponent’s attack stat when it emerges for battle.
Jessie’s Lickilicky♂ Edit
Captured during Jessie’s journey through the Kanto region shortly before the Princess Festival.
Lickitung was accidentally traded by Jessie in exchange for a young man named Benny’s Wobbuffet. After a number of years, Jessie was passing through Pompona Town in Johto when she was reunited with her old friend, who had since evolved into a Lickilicky and volunteered to rejoin her team.
Jessie’s Wobbuffet♂ Edit
Originally belonging to a young man named Benny, Wobbuffet was accidentally traded to Jessie in exchange for her Lickitung. Although generally a pain in Jessie’s neck, Wobbuffet was often instrumental in Pokémon battles, as it knew Counter and Mirror Coat, which were used to deflect powerful attacks.
Like all members of its species, Wobbuffet knows Counter, Mirror Coat, Safeguard, and Destiny Bond. Wobbuffet’s Ability is Shadow Tag, which prevents its opponents from running away or switching out.
Jessie’s Sevipert♂ Edit
One of Jessie’s Pokémon from the Hoenn region, Seviper replaced Arbok as her primary battle partner.
Since the return of Arbok to Jessie’s team, her two snake Pokémon have teamed up in battle numerous times.
Jessie’s Dustox♀ Edit
One of Jessie’s Pokémon from the Hoenn region
Although Jessie released Dustox so that it could mate, it eventually returned to her team, where it now fights alongside her Yanmega.
Jessie’s Yanmega♀ Edit
One of Jessie’s Pokémon from the Sinnoh region, she captured Yanma shortly after releasing her Dustox so that it could mate. Yanma quickly evolved into Yanmega, and became a powerful member of her team. Since the return of Dustox to Jessie’s team, Yanmega and Dustox fight side by side with each other.

James’s Weezing♂ Edit
James’s first Pokémon, it is very powerful and very well loved. Unfortunately, it is frequently, if not always, defeated by Ash Ketchum and his friends’ Pokémon.
James received Koffing for Christmas after his 10th birthday. It soon grew in power and experience, and eventually evolved into Weezing. It often fought alongside Jessie’s Arbok, Lickitung and Wobbuffet and James’ Victreebel.
James released Weezing into the wild in the forest near Rustboro City in Hoenn in order for it to protect a herd of Koffing from Pokémon poachers. He eventually returned to reclaim Weezing, as a Koffing had grown powerful enough and evolved, and could now take care of its fellow Pokémon.
Since its return to James’s party (and now residing in an Ultra Ball), Weezing has become his most powerful Pokémon. In their first official Pokémon battle against Ash after all these years, Weezing and Arbok were able to work together and use their newfound strength to defeat Ash’s Kingler and Muk.
Over the years, Weezing has learned many attacks, including Smog, SmokeScreen, Sludge, Poison Gas, and Tackle. Currently, Weezing knows Sludge Bomb, Thunderbolt, Flamethrower, and Hyper Beam. Weezing’s Ability is Levitate, which renders it immune to Ground-type moves.
James’s Growlithe “Gowlie”♂ Edit
James’s childhood pet, Growlie is the one Pokémon he has captured that does not travel with him but instead remains at his parents’ mansion.
James’s Victreebel♂ Edit
One of James’s stronger Pokémon, he captured Weepinbell and took it to the Breeding Center run by fellow Team Rocket members Butch and Cassidy in disguise. There, they gave Weepinbell a Leaf Stone which enabled it to evolve into Victreebel.
James accidentally traded Victreebel to the Magikarp Salesman for a female Weepinbell that knows Sweet Scent, but the two were subsequently abandoned by their new trainers; the two Victreebel met and fell in love and lived happily ever after. Years later, James returned to reclaim Victreebel.
Over the years, Victreebel has learned many attacks, including Tackle, Razor Leaf, Sleep Powder, Poison Powder, Double-Edge, Wrap, Swords Dance, Take Down, Vine Whip, and Stun Spore. Currently, Victreebel knows Leaf Storm, Sludge Bomb, Swords Dance, and Double-Edge. Victreebel’s Ability is Chlorophyll, which raises its speed in the sunshine.

Recurring characters Edit
Nurse Joy Edit
Nurse Joy are kind nurses who take care of Pokémon.
Generally, Nurse Joys are kind, earnest, honest Pokémon nurses who take care of sick and injured Pokémon, but will confront a Pokémon Trainer if they are not properly caring for their Pokémon.
Although there are many exceptions, Nurse Joy will generally have Chansey (sometimes Blissey) in Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and the Orange Archipelago, and Audino in Unova to assist her.
Some Nurse Joys give out starter Pokémon to Trainers in towns or cities without Pokémon Professors, such as Slateport City, and others serve as inspectors for the Pokémon Inspection Agency. Nurse Joys also judge Pokémon Contests and the Grand Festivals. This makes them not just good nurses, but good judges as well.
Officer Jenny Edit
Officer Jenny are the police officers across the various regions of the Pokémon world who use Pokémon in their duties.
Generally, Officer Jennys are brave and determined, but can be ineffective in their police duties. They fight against the likes of Team Rocket, Team Magma, Team Aqua and Team Galactic – among other miscellaneous criminals. Although there are many exceptions, Officer Jenny will generally have Growlithe in Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and the Orange Archipelago, and Herdier in Unova to use as a police dog. Growlithe’s evolution, Arcanine, also appears on occasion.
Pokémon Professors Edit
Professor Samuel “Sam” Oak Edit
The Pokémon Professor of the Kanto Region, Samuel Oak is a former Pokémon trainer himself. In fact, he was a winner of the Pokémon League at the Indigo Plateau, although he was unable to defeat the Elite Four. After completing his Pokémon journey, he became a Pokémon researcher, focusing his studies on how humans and Pokémon interact with each other. He is a contemporary of Agatha, now a member of the Elite Four, and Kurt, the Poké Ball smith, and is close friends with the Pokémon Professors of the other regions and Bill, a PokéManiac and fellow researcher.
Professor Oak comes from a prestigious family; his older brother is the Mayor of Pallet Town, his younger brother is its postmaster, and his grandfather was the first Pokémon Trainer from Pallet Town to receive widespread recognition. He has a son, who was also a Pokémon trainer, and two grandchildren, Daisy, who runs the Pallet Town Beauty Salon, and Gary, who competed in the Kanto and Johto Leagues before becoming a Pokémon Researcher.
These days, Professor Oak continues his research, and oversees and mentors various trainers from the Kanto region from the Oak Pokémon Research Laboratory, otherwise known as Professor Oak’s lab. He is responsible for giving new Pokémon trainers their Starter Pokémon and a Pokédex, and has given them to many famous trainers, including Gary, Ash Ketchum, now the Colosseum Gladiator of the Kanto Battle Frontier, and Lance, the current Champion of the Kanto Elite Four. His lab is also home to Pokémon belonging to his many students, in addition to various wild Pokémon. His (current) assistant is Tracey Sketchit, a Pokémon Watcher from the Orange Islands and a previous traveling companion of Ash and Misty.
While a traveling Pokémon trainer, Professor Oak also dabbled as a Pokémon Watcher, observing Pokémon in their natural habitats and sketching them. He captured many Pokémon (over 100) as a trainer, and his championship team consisted of Pidgeot, Alakazam, Rhydon, Gyarados, Exeggutor, and Charizard. Many of his former friends are now living at his lab, released into the wild, or training with other Pokémon trainers.
He receives new Starter Pokémon, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle, from the Pokémon League on a regular basis. He gave Ash a special Pikachu, and has given Gary, May, and Misty a Squirtle, Daisy a Chansey, Lance and Ritchie a Charmander, and Gilbert a Bulbasaur.
Professor Oak’s Pokémon Edit
Professor Oak’s Charizard♂ Edit
The Starter Pokémon of Samuel Oak, Charizard is one of his oldest and dearest friends. He received a Charmander at the beginning of his Pokémon journey, and used it to help him earn the eight badges needed to enter and then win the Pokémon League at the Indigo Plateau.
After Oak retired from being a Pokémon trainer and became a researcher, Charizard and his other Pokémon lived with him at his family laboratory. Eventually, as many of Oak’s Pokémon began to move on with their lives, Charizard was invited to live in the Charicific Valley Natural Reserve with other Charizard, where it is now one of the oldest and strongest among them. It still returns to Pallet Town infrequently to see its old friend and trainer, and Oak comes to the Charicific Valley sometimes to visit himself.
Over the years, Charizard has learned many attacks, including Scratch, Growl, Ember, Metal Claw, SmokeScreen, Rage, Scary Face, Flamethrower, Wing Attack, Slash, Fire Spin, Aerial Ace, Dragon Claw, Earthquake, and Fire Blast. Currently, Charizard knows Aerial Ace, Dragon Claw, Earthquake, and Fire Blast. Charizard’s Ability is Blaze, which increases the power of Fire-type attacks when its weakened.

Ash’s mother, Delia Ketchum is a lifelong resident of Pallet Town in Kanto. A former student of Professor Oak, Delia now runs Pallet Town’s restaurant, Pallet House, which she inherited from her mother.
Delia couldn’t be more proud of her son, who made it through five regional Pokémon leagues before becoming a Frontier Brain. She also loves that the Battle Colosseum is so close to Pallet Town.
Unlike her son, Delia is not a Pokémon trainer; however, she does have a few Pokémon, a Mr. Mime nicknamed “Mimey”, a Tentacool, and a Ledyba, all of whom help her out at the restaurant and around town.

Pokémon Trainers Edit
Gary Oak Edit
Ash’s greatest rival, Gary Oak started his Pokémon journey on the same day as Ash, choosing to start out with Squirtle. Like many young trainers, Gary was full of arrogance (and he actually had some skill to back it up), often taunting Ash over how far ahead he was. By the time Gary reached the Pokémon League at the Indigo Plateau, he had earned 10 gym badges and captured dozens of Pokémon (including more than one of the same species).
Gary’s first loss in an official Pokémon battle was against Lt. Surge, the Vermilion City Gym Leader. Gary’s Nidorino was able to defeat Lt. Surge’s Magnemite and his Wartortle knocked out Voltorb, but Lt. Surge’s Raichu gave Surge a come-from-behind victory by defeating Wartortle, Nidorino, and Raticate.
Gary learned some humility when he was humiliated in the Viridian City Gym by an unknown Pokémon (later revealed to be Mewtwo) and then lost in the fourth round of the Indigo Conference. He took a nice hard look at himself and reexamined both his training style and his personal ideals. Gary’s arrogance gave way to experience, and by the time he competed in the Johto League Silver Conference, he was polite and respectful, and his Pokémon were better trained and twice as strong as they were during the Indigo League.
While traveling through the Johto region, he quickly realized that the Pokémon he’d brought with him from Kanto were too strong for many of the younger trainers and Pokémon found in the beginnings of Johto. To compensate, he began capturing and using new Pokémon from the region, even against the Gym Leaders (with some notable exceptions). By the time he reached Olivine City, Gary rotated in some of his old friends from Kanto.
After he lost to Ash in the Silver Conference, Gary took a break from being a traveling Pokémon trainer and began to focus on becoming a Pokémon researcher like his grandfather. His early research involved the various extinct and fossilized Pokémon, and he participated in the reviving of Fossil Pokémon. Gary also has an older sister, Daisy, who runs the Pallet Town Beauty Salon and occasionally participates in Pokémon Contests.
Shortly after the opening of the Battle Colosseum, Gary challenged Ash to a battle against his newly-acquired Aerodactyl. Ash agreed, and used his friend, Latias, for the battle. It was a well-fought battle, but Gary’s ancient Pokémon couldn’t defeat Ash’s Legendary Dragon.
An excellent Pokémon trainer, Gary has captured numerous Pokémon, many of whom reside at his grandfather’s lab. As a Pokémon researcher, Gary continues to carry his Blastoise and Umbreon on a regular basis. His other Pokémon include Kingler, Nidoking, Arcanine, Dodrio, Nidoqueen, Magmortar, Scizor, Golem, Pinsir, Houndoom, Fearow, Alakazam, Skarmory, Kingdra, Electivire, Pidgeot, Raticate, Rhyperior, Gyarados, Exeggutor, Sandslash, Cloyster, Magnezone, Ninetales, Machamp, Heracross, Tyranitar, Slowbro, Clefable, Gengar, Mamoswine, and Miltank. Since becoming a Pokémon researcher, Gary has also added the Fossil Pokémon Omanyte, Kabuto, Lileep, Anorith, Cranidos, Shieldon, Tirtouga, Archen, and Aerodactyl to his team. He also has a Blastoisinite Mega Stone, which enables his Blastoise to Mega Evolve into Mega Blastoise.
Gary’s Pokémon Edit
Gary’s Blastoise♂ Edit
Gary Oak’s Starter Pokémon, he received Squirtle from his grandfather, Professor Samuel Oak, at the beginning of his Pokémon journey. From the beginning, Squirtle was a powerful Pokémon, able to defeat Brock at the Pewter City Gym. By the time he’d reached the Cinnabar Island Gym, Gary’s recently-evolved Blastoise was able to sweep Blaine, a Fire-type Gym Leader.
Although exceptionally well-raised and very powerful, Blastoise was not undefeatable. As a Wartortle, it lost (badly) to Lt. Surge’s Raichu at the Vermilion City Gym, which resulted in Gary’s first loss in a Pokémon battle. During the Johto League Silver Conference, Blastoise lost a hard-fought battle against Ash’s Charizard after previously beating Ash’s Heracross and Bayleef. In a double battle with Ash’s Pikachu, it fought to a stalemate against Pokémon Hunter J’s Salamence and Drapion. Despite these losses, Blastoise has defeated numerous powerful opponents, including Brock’s Geodude and Onix, Lt. Surge’s Voltorb, Blaine’s Ninetales, Rhydon, and Magmar, Whitney’s Miltank, Jasmine’s Steelix, and Ash’s Heracross and Bayleef.
While Gary retired from Pokémon gym battles and league tournaments after the Johto League, he continued to train Pokémon while working as a Pokémon researcher. When not traveling with Gary, Blastoise resides with the rest of Gary’s Pokémon at Professor Oak’s lab.
Recently, Gary came into possession of a Blastoisinite Mega Stone, thus allowing Blastoise to Mega Evolve into Mega Blastoise.
Over the years, Blastoise has learned many attacks, including Tackle, Bubble, Water Gun, Bite, Withdraw, Rain Dance, Rapid Spin, Hydro Pump, Skull Bash, Ice Beam, Earthquake, and Hydro Cannon. Currently, Blastoise knows Skull Bash, Blizzard, Flash Cannon, and Hydro Cannon. Blastoise’s Ability is Torrent, which increases the power of Water-type attacks when its weakened.
Gary’s Umbreon♂ Edit
Captured as an Eevee, Gary raised the Evolution Pokémon with a great deal of love and respect, so much so that it had bright eyes and glossy coat. It was powerful enough to defeat Ash’s Pikachu (although Ash would contend that Pikachu was still worn out from defeating Drake, the Orange League Champion’s Dragonite).
Eevee joined Gary on his journey through the Johto region, where it evolved into Umbreon one night. Umbreon proved to be a valued member of Gary’s team, lending a hand against the Gym Leaders of Johto and later during the Silver Conference, although it did not participate in what would be Gary’s last battle of the league against Ash. Umbreon has defeated numerous powerful opponents, including Ash’s Pikachu, and Alex Davis’s Alakazam.
While Gary retired from Pokémon gym battles and league tournaments after the Johto League, he continued to train Pokémon while working as a Pokémon researcher. He carried Umbreon while researching Fossil Pokémon, and then when he traveled to Sinnoh. When not traveling with Gary, Umbreon resides with the rest of Gary’s Pokémon at Professor Oak’s lab.
Over the years, Umbreon has learned many attacks, including Reflect, Double Team, Take Down, Skul Bash, Tackle, Quick Attack, Hidden Power, Flash, Sand-Attack, Shadow Ball, and Psychic. Currently, Umbreon knows Double Team, Shadow Ball, Psychic, and Dark Pulse. Umbreon’s Ability is Synchronize, which passes on status problems to the opponent that caused it.
Gary’s Arcanine♂ Edit
One of Gary’s oldest Pokémon, he captured Growlithe on Kanto Route 7, and used it to dispatch Erika, the Celadon City Gym Leader, and her Grass-type Pokémon.
While passing through Stone Town, Gary received a Fire Stone, which he used to evolve Growlithe into Arcanine.
Arcanine suffered a huge defeat at the Viridian City Gym, losing to an unknown Pokémon (later revealed to be Mewtwo). Despite its defeat, Arcanine remained a prominent member of Gary’s team, and he used Arcanine in both the Pokémon League at the Indigo Plateau and the Johto League Silver Conference. Arcanine has defeated numerous powerful opponents, including Erika’s Tangela, Weepinbell, and Gloom, Koga’s Venonat, Giovanni’s Kingler, and Pryce’s Dewgong.
While Gary retired from Pokémon gym battles and league tournaments after the Johto League, he continued to train Pokémon while working as a Pokémon researcher. When not traveling with Gary, Arcanine resides with the rest of Gary’s Pokémon at Professor Oak’s lab.
Over the years, Arcanine has learned many attacks, including Bite, Roar, Ember, Take Down, Swift, Flame Wheel, Agility, Flamethrower, ExtremeSpeed, Overheat, Iron Tail, Aerial Ace, Flare Blitz, Dragon Pulse, Thunder Fang, Crunch, Close Combat, Wild Charge, Fire Spin, and Fire Blast.

When she confronted Ash, her Pokémon team consisted of Gengar, Scizor, Pachirisu, Gallade, Crustle, and Bellsprout.
Jeanette’s Pokémon Edit
Jeanette’s Bellsprout♀ Edit
Abnormally strong, Bellsprout is Jeanette Fisher’s secret weapon. Bellsprout was able to take Jeanette all the way to the fourth round of the Pokémon League at the Indigo Plateau. During that match, Bellsprout was able to defeat Ash Ketchum’s Bulbasaur and Pikachu, before losing to his Muk.
Years later, Jeanette, now challenging the Battle Frontier, came across Ash, who was in charge of the Battle Colosseum. Her Bellsprout as strong as ever, and Jeanette mentioned that it had no desire to evolve into Weepinbell or Victreebel. In a rematch of their first Pokémon battle, Bellsprout faced Bulbasaur once again, and once again the Flower Pokémon emerged victorious.
Currently, Bellsprout knows Sunny Day, SolarBeam, Weather Ball, and Sludge Bomb. Bellsprout’s Ability is Chlorophyll, which raises its speed in the sunshine.
A powerful Pokémon trainer from Frodomar City and a friendly rival of Ash Ketchum, Ritchie has traveled around the Pokémon World and had many adventures.
When Ash opened the Battle Colosseum, Ritchie was one of his first opponents. The two trainers had a three-on-three battle, with the first match being a type battle and the second a double battle. The first match–no surprise–was a battle of Electric-types, Pikachu vs. Sparky (who Ritchie had used a Thunder Stone to evolve into Raichu), and the double battle took place between Ash’s Sceptile and Charizard and Ritchie’s Tyranitar “Cruise” and Floatzel “Otto”. Sparky and Pikachu proved to be evenly matched and they ended up knocking each other out, but Ritchie’s tag-team were able to combine their forces to defeat Sceptile and Charizard with their type advantage, diverse move sets, and excellent training. With his victory, Ash awarded Ritchie with his Frontier Symbol, the Skill Symbol.
Some trainers like to give their Pokémon nicknames to distinguish them from other Pokémon, and Ritchie is one of those trainers.

Forrest Harrison Edit
Brock’s younger brother and aspiring Rock-type Pokémon Master, Forrest’s own Pokémon journey led him to travel around the Kanto region, where, within a year, he earned the requisite 8 badges in order to join the Kanto Pokémon League at the Indigo Plateau, but he was defeated in Round Four by a rival trainer. His Pokémon team consists mostly of Rock-type Pokémon, but with secondary types to compensate for their natural weaknesses. At the Indigo Plateau, Forrest used his Rhyperior, Magneton, Poliwrath, Nidoking, Yanmega, and Vibrava; at his home in Pewter City, Forrest has a Graveler, Slugma, Corsola, Quagsire, Sandslash, Pinsir, and more. With his defeat, Forrest came back to Pewter City where he has since taken up the mantle of Pewter City Gym Leader.
Shortly after winning his 8th badge in the Kanto region, Forrest met and challenged Koga of the Elite Four, who swept the three-on-three match using only his Venomoth, defeating his Graveler, Poliwrath, and Rhyperior, despite the latter’s evolution during the battle, due to Venomoth’s combination Poison-, Grass-, and Psychic-type attacks.
Forrest’s Pokémon Edit
Forrest’s Rhyperior♂ Edit
Forrest’s first and strongest Pokémon, he was given Rhyhorn by his father, Flint, on his tenth birthday.
Not long after he won his 8th badge in the Kanto region, Forrest met and challenged Koga of the Elite Four. After Koga’s Venomoth beat his Graveler and Poliwrath, Forrest called on his Rhydon.

Forrest’s Poliwrath♂ Edit
Just before he began his Pokémon journey, Forrest was given a Poliwag by his stepmother, Lola. Although a little hesitant to take and raise a Water-type Pokémon (because he considered himself a Rock-type specialist), Lola and Flint reminded him that as a traveling Pokémon trainer, he needed to have a well-rounded team. Also, upon its evolution to Poliwrath, it became part Fighting-type and was able to learn some Rock-type attacks. With that in mind, Forrest accepted Poliwag onto his team, and raised it to the best of his ability.
Over the years, Poliwrath has learned many attacks. Currently, Poliwrath knows Hydro Pump, Rock Slide, Mind Reader, and Dynamic Punch. Poliwrath’s Ability is Water Absorb, which heals its health when hit with a Water-type attack.

A Top Coordinator, Solidad has many powerful and beautiful Pokémon, including Slowbro, Lapras, Pidgeot, Butterfree, Persian, Rapidash, Seaking, Lanturn, Scizor, Miltank, Beautifly, Luvdisc, Lumineon, Froslass, and Dragonair.
Zoey, Top Coordinator of the Sinnoh Grand Festival Edit
A Pokémon Coordinator from Snowpoint City, Zoey participated and won the Sinnoh Grand Festival. She is as close as sisters to Candice, the Snowpoint City Gym Leader, and is also a friendly rival to Dawn. Her other rivals include Kenny, Nando, and Ursula.
Not long after Ash opened the Battle Colosseum, Zoey challenged him to a two-on-two Contest-style battle. She lost, making that her fourth consecutive defeat. However, Ash was able to cheer her up and improve her confidence, which had been shaken after the loss of her Gastrodon to Hoenn Grand Festival winner Robert and his Golem.
Zoey has an impressive collection of Pokémon, all of whom are trained in all manners of Contest-style appeals and battling. Her lineup includes Glameow, Mismagius, Gastrodon, Lumineon, Gallade, Leafeon, Butterfree, Raichu, Golduck, Bellossom, Sneasel, Magcargo, Beautifly, Milotic, and Wormadam.
Pokémon Breeders Edit
A Pokémon Breeder and Coordinator, Suzy was born and raised in Celadon City, and grew up to work on Scissor Street as a Pokémon beautician and stylist. She believed wholeheartedly that a Pokémon’s beauty comes from inside, and her salon was dedicated to making Pokémon feel fit as well as looking beautiful. She moved her salon from Celadon City to Pewter City after she reconnected with and began dating Brock Harrison, a Pokémon Breeder-turned-Doctor.
In addition to her salon, Suzy and Brock also both run the Pewter City Pokémon Breeding Center, where they raise young and recently hatched Pokémon. Among the Pokémon in their care are Caterpie, Weedle, Pidgey, Rattata, Vulpix, Oddish, Poliwag, Geodude, Gastly, Horsea, Eevee, Pichu (who was later given to Ash), Cleffa, Igglybuff, Togepi, Teddiursa, Tyrogue, Smoochum, Elekid, Magby, Wurmple, Azurill, Wynaut, Budew, Burmy, Chingling, Bonsly, Mime Jr., Happiny, Munchlax, Riolu, and Mantyke.
Suzy’s main Pokémon is Ninetales, which she had previously lent to Brock to train while it was still a Vulpix. She also has a Butterfree, a Vileplume a Jynx, and a Wormadam, who, along with Ninetales, have participated in the Kanto Grand Festival. She and Brock sometimes borrow each other’s Pokémon if and when the need arises.
Suzy’s Pokémon Edit
Suzy’s Ninetales♂ Edit
Originally Suzy’s Pokémon, she gave Vulpix to Brock to raise after seeing how well he cared for his Geodude and Ash’s Pikachu. Under Brock’s care, Vulpix became a powerful Pokémon who’s outer beauty was second to its inner strength. When Brock ran into Suzy again in Johto, he returned Vulpix to her care. In the interim, Suzy used a Fire Stone to evolve Vulpix into Ninetales.
After reuniting with Brock after his Sinnoh journey and moving to Pewter City, Suzy now shares Ninetales with Brock, and together they keep the Fox Pokémon looking beautiful and well-trained.
Over the years, Ninetales has learned many attacks, including Flamethrower, Fire Spin, and Quick Attack. Currently, Ninetales knows Fire Blast, Will-O-Wisp, Energy Ball, and Extrasensory. Ninetales’s Ability is Flash Fire, which powers up its Fire-type moves if hit by a Fire-type attack.
A Pokémon trainer-turned-Breeder, Reggie was an excellent trainer who had participated in the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh Leagues, as well as the Battle Frontier. Unfortunately, he was unable to win the Indigo, Silver, Ever Grande, or Lily of the Valley Conferences, and when he challenged Brandon, the Pyramid King and final member of the Battle Frontier, Reggie was unable to defeat any of Brandon's Pokémon. After his loss, Reggie decided to become a Pokémon Breeder, and he opened the Veilstone City Breeding Center to help raise Pokémon.
Reggie has a younger brother, Paul, who is a fierce rival of Ash Ketchum. Unlike many trainers, Paul sends his extra Pokémon to his brother instead of to a Pokémon professor.
After his Pokémon journey ended, Reggie released many of his Pokémon back into the wild. He trained many powerful Pokémon during his journey, including but not limited to Torterra (his Starter Pokémon), Infernape, Empoleon, Staraptor, Bibarel, Kricketune, Luxray, Roserade, Mothim, Floatzel, Gastrodon, Heracross, Lopunny, Purugly, Skuntank, Bronzong, Spiritomb, Lucario, Hippowdon, Drapion, Abomasnow, and Froslass.
Pokémon Champions Edit
A powerful Pokémon trainer from Mauville City in Hoenn, Tyson began his journey in Littleroot Town, having received a Treecko from Professor Birch. In addition, Tyson is a food connoisseur, traveling around the world to try various local cuisines, and an amateur Pokémon Breeder.
Not long into his journey, Tyson met a Meowth who’d been defeated by a Persian and abandoned by its pack. After Tyson nursed it back to health, Meowth donned a pair of boots and a feathered hat and joined Tyson’s team, becoming one of his strongest Pokémon.
Tyson competed in the Ever Grande Festival, where he became friends with Ash Ketchum. He won the tournament with the aid of his Pokémon. After winning, he challenged the Hoenn Elite Four, but lost to each member. He subsequently went on to the Sinnoh region to compete in the Lily of the Valley Conference.
Tyson’s Pokémon team consists of Sceptile, Meowth, Metagross, Donphan, Shiftry, Hariyama, Murkrow, Sableye, Torkoal, Flygon, Walrein, Gallade, and more.
Tyson’s Pokémon Edit
Tyson’s Meowth♂ Edit
One of Tyson’s strongest Pokémon, he first encounters Meowth when it was in a pack of its kind in a forest on a snowy night. Meowth was challenged by a Persian for leadership of its pack, and lost, leading to its exile from the pack. Tyson witnessed the battle, and proceeded to nurse Meowth back to health. As the soles of Meowth’s feet were too painful to stand on, Tyson gave it a pair of boots to help it walk again. Meowth was then given a cowboy hat and a place on Tyson’s team.
Tyson’s Meowth is more than strong enough to evolve into a Persian, but it refuses to do so. Meowth is a proud, confident and determined Pokémon. Meowth has defeated numerous powerful Pokémon, including Vivica’s Persian, a trainer’s Rhydon, and Ash’s Pikachu.
Currently, Meowth knows Slash, Double Team, Iron Tail, and Thunderbolt. Meowth’s Ability is Technician, which powers up weak attacks.
Champion of the Sinnoh League’s Lily of the Valley Conference, Tobias is one of the few trainers in the history of the Pokémon world to have captured and trained Legendary Pokémon.
During the Lily of the Valley Conference, Ash Ketchum, now the Colosseum Gladiator of the Kanto Battle Frontier, became the first trainer to defeat both Darkrai (his signature Pokémon) and Latios, although it cost Ash all six of his Pokémon. In fact, until Ash and his Sceptile, Tobias’s Darkrai was undefeated in the Sinnoh League (and the Sinnoh region, for that matter).
Tobias has made a point of capturing and raising very rare and powerful Pokémon, including Darkrai, Latios, Heatran, Shaymin, Rotom, and Spiritomb. He also has, among other Pokémon, Snorlax, Dragonite, Tyranitar, Slaking, Flygon, Aggron, Salamence, Metagross, Garchomp, and the “Eeveelutions”: Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Glaceon, and Leafeon.
Tobias’s Pokémon Edit
Tobias’s Darkrai Edit
Tobias’s main Pokémon, Darkrai was undefeated in the Sinnoh League (and the Sinnoh region, for that matter), save for a single loss to Ash Ketchum’s Sceptile. Sceptile was able to win against Darkrai by awakening before Dream Eater could hit it and subduing the Pitch-Black Pokémon with two Leaf Blade attacks.
Darkrai’s known moves are Ice Beam, Dark Void, Dream Eater, and Dark Pulse. Darkrai’s Ability is Bad Dreams, which reduces a sleeping Pokémon’s health each turn.
Tobias’s Latios♂ Edit
Tobias’s second-known Pokémon, Latios was used after Darkrai was defeated. Extremely powerful, Latios was able to defeat both Ash’s Sceptile and Swellow, before drawing with Pikachu.
Latios’s known moves are Giga Impact, Luster Purge, Light Screen, and Safeguard. Latios’s Ability is Levitate, which renders it immune to Ground-type moves.
Champion of the Unova League’s Vertress Conference, Virgil is an “Eeveelution” trainer (he trains Eevee and its evolved forms). He is also a member of the Pokémon volunteer Rescue Squad, along with his older brother, Davy, and their father, Jeff.
Virgil’s known Pokémon are the seven “Eeveelutions”: Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Glaceon, and Leafeon, along with an unevolved Eevee.
Nurse Veronica Joy Edit
A Nurse Joy who decided to compete in Pokémon Leagues in addition to her nursing duties, Veronica Joy is a longtime friendly rival of Lance, the Champion of the Kanto Elite Four.
Like most Nurse Joys, Veronica began her journey with a Chansey, and upon her registration for the Kanto Pokémon League in Pallet Town, she was given a Pokédex and a Starter Pokémon, Bulbasaur, from Professor Oak. Veronica completed her journey through Kanto, collecting Gym Badges and eventually making it to the Indigo Plateau, where she participated in the Pokémon League, coming in second to Lance.
After losing to Lance, she returned home where she earned her nursing degree. She then returned to the battle fields, and used her skills to take her to the top, winning the Pokémon League. She then challenged the Elite Four, but was unable to defeat Lance, who was then the final member of the Elite Four. In addition to her nursing duties, Veronica is a member of the Pokémon G-Men.
After defeating her a second time, Lance asked Veronica out, and the two have been in an on-again, off-again relationship ever since.
As a Nurse Joy, Veronica is often underestimated in battle, which she attributes as one of the reasons she was able to go so far at the Indigo Plateau. She has trained many powerful Pokémon during her journey, including Blissey, Venusaur, Butterfree, Pidgeot, Raticate, Raichu, Nidoqueen, Clefable, Wigglytuff, Vileplume, Parasect, Persian, Victreebel, Rapidash, Dewgong, Kangaskhan, Seaking, Jynx, Furret, Bellossum, Jumpluff, Sunflora, Miltank, Breloom, Roserade, Luvdisc, Lopunny, Cherrim, Lumineon, and Purugly.

The most powerful Pokémon trainer in the Orange Islands, Drake is considered the Champion of the Orange League. For the fifteen years Drake has been Champion, he’s lost only a handful of times, with a winning streak of five years. He’s a trainer of semi-rare and very powerful Pokémon, including his best friend and strongest Pokémon, Dragonite.
Trainers who defeat Drake receive the Winner’s Trophy and are entered into the Orange League Hall of Fame.
In addition, Drake is also a member of the Pokémon-G Men.
While visiting Kanto, Drake met Ash once again and challenged him to a rematch. In the ensuing 2-on-2 battle, Drake’s Ditto was once again defeated by Ash’s Pikachu after beating Ash’s Gible, but his Dragonite was able to prevail over Ash’s Starter Pokémon. With the battle over, the two trainers shook hands and went their separate ways.

Drake’s Pokémon Edit
Drake’s Dragonite♂ Edit
Easily Drake’s strongest Pokémon, Dragonite has only once been defeated since Drake became Champion of the Orange League. With its powerful array of attacks, it is very nearly unbeatable.
When Ash challenged the Orange League, Drake used Dragonite as his last Pokémon, and it was able to defeat Ash’s Charizard, Tauros, and Squirtle, before losing to Ash’s Pikachu after a long hard battle. Years later, during a rematch against Ash, Dragonite was able to prevail over Pikachu.
Over the years, Dragonite has learned many attacks, including Water Gun, Ice Beam, Slam, Dragon Rage, Thunderbolt, Body Slam, Skull Bash, Agility, Thunder, and Hyper Beam. Currently, Dragonite knows Draco Meteor, Slam, Hurricane, and Hyper Beam. Dragonite’s Ability is Inner Focus, which protects itself from flinching.
Drake’s Ditto Edit
One of Drake’s powerful Pokémon, Ditto was known for intimidating its opponents, who lost their cool (and the battle) seeing a copycat defeat their own Pokémon.
When Ash challenged the Orange League, Drake used Ditto as his first Pokémon; while it was a higher level than Ash’s Pikachu, it didn’t have Pikachu’s physical condition which allowed Pikachu to triumph. Years later, during a rematch against Ash, Drake used Ditto to defeat Ash’s Gible, but once again, it was unable to beat Pikachu.
Ditto’s only move is Transform. Ditto’s Ability is Limber, which renders it immune to paralysis.
Steven Stone, Champion of the Hoenn Elite Four Edit
Born in Mossdeep City, Steven Stone is the son of the president of the Devon Corporation. He was the Champion of the Hoenn Elite Four until he was defeated by Wallace, the former Gym Leader of Sootopolis City; the two are now close friends and rivals and have traded the title back and forth for years. In addition, Steven is also a member of the Pokémon-G Men.
While passing through Pewter City, Steven came upon the Pewter City Pokémon Breeding Center run by former Gym Leader Brock. Steven was impressed by the young Pokémon Breeder/Doctor, and after they foiled an attempt on the Pewter City Museum of Science by Pokémon thieves looking for revived Fossil Pokémon, Steven left a young Aron in Brock’s care.
A Steel-type Pokémon trainer, Steven has also revived and trained a variety of Fossil Pokémon. His two strongest Pokémon are Aggron and his Shiny Metagross, and he also uses Skarmory, Claydol, Forretress, Steelix, Scizor, Mawile, Empoleon, Wormadam, Lucario, Bronzong, Magnezone, Excadrill, Ferrothorn, Bisharp, and Durant, along with Omastar, Kabutops, Aerodactyl, Cradily, Armaldo, Rampardos, Bastiodon, Carracosta, and Archeops. He also raises young Pokémon, including Aron and Beldum, and occasionally gives them to worthy trainers. He also has a Metagrossite Mega Stone, which enables his Metagross to Mega Evolve into Mega Metagross.
Steven’s Pokémon Edit
Steven’s Aggron♂ Edit
Steven’s first Pokémon, Aggron is, alongside Metagross, his strongest. It was with Aggron’s help that Steven became Champion of the Hoenn Elite Four. He has raised Aggron since it was a young Aron.

Over the years, Aggron has learned many attacks, including Earthquake, Dragon Claw, Thunder, SolarBeam, Protect, Head Smash, Avalanche, and Metal Burst. Currently, Aggron knows Iron Head, Aerial Ace, Thunderbolt, and SolarBeam. Aggron’s Ability is Sturdy, which prevents it from being knocked out with one attack.

Wallace, Champion of the Hoenn Elite Four/Top Coordinator of the Hoenn Grand Festival Edit
The former Gym Leader of Sootopolis City, Wallace relinquished control of his Gym to his mentor, Juan, when he decided to participate in the Hoenn League.
Prior to becoming a Gym Leader (and later Champion of the Hoenn Elite Four), Wallace began his Pokémon journey as a Pokémon Coordinator. It was after winning the Hoenn Grand Festival that he began to travel the Hoenn region and challenge the various Gyms. Since becoming the Hoenn League Champion, Wallace has participated in the Kanto, Johto, and Sinnoh Grand Festivals, and is a three-time Top Coordinator (he placed second in Kanto). Wallace is also the founder and judge of the Wallace Cup, a traveling Pokémon Contest; the winner of the Wallace Cup received the prestigious Aqua Ribbon, a contest ribbon that counts toward any region’s Grand Festival.
However, Wallace is by no means undefeated. In fact, one of his recent losses came at the hands of Robert, a fellow Hoenn Top Coordinator, who defeated the Pokémon Champion in a contest battle.
Wallace is a close friend and rival to Steven Stone, Hoenn’s other Champion, and the two have traded the title back and forth for years. As the Champion of the Hoenn Elite Four, Wallace participates in Pokémon Battles, stages exhibition matches, and travels the world with his Pokémon. In addition, Wallace is also a member of the Pokémon-G Men.
While traveling through Cerulean City, Wallace was challenged to a battle by the Sensational Sisters – Daisy, Violet, and Lily – and their younger sister, Misty, who was serving as the Cerulean City Gym Leader. Wallace accepted the challenge, and the matches was televised in Cerulean City and later broadcast on the Pokémon Broadcasting Network. Working together, Daisy, Violet, and Lily were able to knock out Wallace’s Gyarados, but his Walrein and Milotic were able to beat Vaporeon, Chinchou, and Poliwhirl and ultimately win the match. During his three-on-three battle with Misty, his Poliwrath defeated Misty’s Gyarados and Corsola, but lost to her final Pokémon, Psyduck. Wallace was impressed with Psyduck’s psychic powers (and its newly learned Water-type move, Scald), but that didn’t stop him from using Swampert to defeat Psyduck with a single Hydro Cannon attack.
All of Wallace’s Pokémon are qualified for both traditional Pokémon battles as well as contests. He is a Water-type specialist, and is particularly fond of Water-type Pokémon with another type as well. His strongest Pokémon is Milotic, and he also uses Swampert (his Starter Pokémon given to him by Prof. Birch’s predecessor), Blastoise, Golduck, Poliwrath, Tentacruel, Seaking, Gyarados, Vaporeon, Dragonite, Feraligatr, Lanturn, Slowking, Corsola, Kingdra, Ludicolo, Pelipper, Masquerain, Sharpedo, Wailord, Whiscash, Crawdaunt, Walrein, Huntail, Gorebyss, Relicanth, Luvdisc, Empoleon, Bibarel, Lumineon, Samurott, Semipour, Seismitoad, Jellicent, and Alomomola.

After winning the eight Sinnoh League badges, Cynthia participated in and won the Lily of the Valley Conference. Upon her victory, she was presented with the Winner’s Trophy and was given the opportunity to battle the Elite Four and their Champion, whom she also defeated. With her victory, Cynthia became the new Champion of the Sinnoh Elite Four.
As a young trainer, Cynthia was determined to win with the strongest Pokémon, but as she grew as a trainer and as a person (not to mention her first major defeat against the Sunnyshore City Gym Leader, Volkner), she learned humility and became a better Pokémon trainer and eventually Champion.
Cynthia is very interested in mythology and history, and spends her time researching and exploring various sites associated with legendary Pokémon. She has consulted with various Pokémon professors, researchers, and historians, helping to unlock the mysteries of the Pokémon world.
As the Champion of the Sinnoh Elite Four, Cynthia participates in Pokémon Battles, stages exhibition matches, and travels the world with her Pokémon. She is friends with Lance, Drake, Steven, Wallace, and Alder, the Champions of the other Pokémon regions, and is a personal acquaintance of Ash Ketchum.

As a Champion, Alder has trained many powerful Pokémon over the years, including Accelgor, Escavalier, Bouffalant, Druddigon, Vanilluxe, Conkeldurr, Braviary, Reuniclus, Krookodile, Chandelure, and Volcarona (who is the child of his Starter Pokémon, Larvesta).

Due to his status as a member of the Elite Four, Drake struggles to find a personal balance between humility and overconfidence.
While traveling through the Hoenn region, Ash met Drake, who invited the young trainer back to his ship for a Pokémon battle. During a best out of three battle, Drake’s Shelgon defeated Ash’s Pikachu and his Altaria defeated Ash’s Grovyle to win the match.
Drake uses a variety of Pokémon, most of them resembling Dragons; his team includes Charizard, Gyarados, Feraligatr, Kingdra, Sceptile, Seviper, Milotic, Tropius, Shelgon, Altaria, Flygon, Garchomp, Haxorus, Druddigon, Hydreigon, and his most powerful, Salamence. He also has a Salamencite Mega Stone, which enables his Salamence to Mega Evolve into Mega Salamence.

Gym Leaders Edit
Flint Harrison, Leader of the Pewter City Gym Edit
Brock’s father, Flint, once again took over the Pewter Gym when his younger brother, Forrest, left on his Pokémon journey with a Rhyhorn some four years ago. As the Pewter Gym Leader, Flint used weaker Rock- and Ground-type Pokémon, including Sandshrew, Diglett, Cubone, Shuckle, Geodude, and Onix against rookie trainers just starting out on their journeys, while saving his stronger Pokémon, Rhydon, Magcargo, Corsola, and his signature Pokémon, Golem, for veterans who sought to challenge the Pewter Gym.
Many years ago, Flint was challenged by a young Pokémon trainer looking for his first badge. After his Geodude defeated the trainer’s Beedrill, the young man came back from behind and knocked out both Geodude and Sandshrew with his Dratini. That challenger grew up to become Lance, the Champion of the Elite Four and member of the Pokémon G-Men.
In addition to his duties as a Gym Leader, Flint is also a loving husband to his wife, Lola, and father to his children, Brock, Forrest, Salvadore, Yolanda, Tommy, Cindy, Suzie, Timmy, Billy, and Tilly.
Daisy, Violet, and Lily Waterflower, the Sensational Sisters of Cerulean City Edit
At the Cerulean City Gym, the Sensational Sisters–Daisy, Violet, and Lily–have finally accepted Misty as one of them...though they still sometimes treat her like a kid. The older three Cerulean Gym Leaders have grown up some and have accepted the responsibility of Gym Leader, and share many of the Gym’s Water-type Pokémon, including Seaking, Dewgong, Cloyster, Lapras, Slowbro, Goldeen, Shellder, Finneon, Basculin, Swanna, and Alomomola. Each sister also has personal Pokémon: Daisy has a Luvdisc, a Vaporeon, and a Lanturn, Violet has a Seadra and a Chinchou, and Lily has a Poliwhirl and an Azumarill.
During a visit to the Cerulean Gym while on a tour in Kanto, Wallace, the Hoenn League Champion and Top Coordinator, challenged the three Sensational Sisters to a triple battle; although the three of them working together were able to knock out Wallace’s Gyarados, his Walrein and Milotic were able to beat Vaporeon, Chinchou, and Poliwhirl. The match was televised in Cerulean City and later broadcast on the Pokémon Broadcasting Network.
Lieutenant Surge, Leader of the Vermilion City Gym Edit
A former soldier, Lt. Surge moved to Kanto after the war to train and raise his Electric-type Pokémon. He eventually became the Gym Leader of the Vermilion City Gym, awarding the Thunder Badge to trainers who managed to defeat him.
Lt. Surge gave Gary Oak of Pallet Town his first defeat in an official Pokémon battle, coming back from behind to knock out all three of his Pokémon with Raichu. After Raichu lost to Ash’s Pikachu, Lt. Surge began to change his battle style, which improved his quality as a Pokémon trainer and made him an even stronger Gym Leader.
His most powerful Pokémon (and his best friend) is Raichu; he also uses Raticate, Fearow, Electrode, Jolteon, Ampharos, Lanturn, Manectric, Luxray, Pachirisu, Magnezone, Lickilicky, Electivire, Zebstrika, Galvantula, Eelektross, and Stunfisk. He also has Voltorb, Magnemite, and Pikachu, which he uses against less-experienced challengers.
Lt. Surge’s Pokémon Edit
Lt. Surge’s Raichu♂ Edit
Lt. Surge’s strongest Pokémon, he captured a wild Pikachu and used a Thunder Stone to evolve it into Raichu almost immediately. Raichu then learned a variety of powerful attacks that were strong enough to knock out most Pokémon with one or two hits.
Lt. Surge and Raichu were responsible for Gary Oak’s first defeat in an official Pokémon battle. After Gary’s Nidorino and Wartortle defeated Surge’s Magnemite and Voltorb, respectively, Raichu used its awesome power to overcome Gary’s Wartortle, Nidorino, and Raticate.
Lt. Surge and Raichu also defeated Ash Ketchum and his Pikachu during his first visit to the Vermilion Gym. However, after a little training, Ash challenged Surge to a rematch and won using Pikachu’s greater speed. After his loss, Surge began to rectify his mistakes and worked with Raichu on its speed.
Over the years, Raichu has learned many attacks, including Thunder Shock, Mega Punch, Mega Kick, Body Slam, Thunderbolt, Take Down, Thunder Wave, Growl, Shock Wave, Double Team, Grass Knot, Focus Blast, Signal Beam, Volt Tackle, Fake Out, and Focus Punch. Currently, Raichu knows Thunder, Double Team, Volt Tackle, and Hyper Beam. Raichu’s Ability is Static, which paralyzes its foe when Raichu gets hit by a physical attack or uses a physical attack.
Leader of the Lavender Town Gym Edit
Very little is known about the Gym Leader of Lavender Town. For many young Pokémon trainers, the Lavender Gym is their first exposure to Ghost-type Pokémon.
Ash Ketchum of Pallet Town never challenged the Lavender Town Gym.
The Gym Leader’s Pokémon include Gastly, Cubone, and Raticate. When the Gym Leader is defeated, the winner receives the Badge.
Erika, Leader of the Celadon City Gym Edit
A serene young woman, Erika is both a powerful Gym Leader and a world-renowned florist, with a degree in Botany.
Her Pokémon are mostly Grass-types, with various “attractive” Pokémon rounding out her team. Her personal team consists of Bellossom, Vileplume, Victreebel, Shiftry, Roserade, and Tangrowth, with many more at her disposal at the Celadon City Gym, including Venusaur, Clefable, Parasect, Dewgong, Exeggutor, Jumpluff, Blissey, Cradily, Abomasnow, Leafeon, Whimsicott, and Lilligant.
Janine, Leader of the Fuchsia City Gym Edit
The daughter of Koga, Janine took over the Fuchsia City Gym when her father was promoted to the Elite Four. Although she’s one of the newer members of the Kanto Gym Leaders, Janine’s natural talent, determination, and enthusiasm all make her a challenging opponent.
Her team consists of Crobat, Toxicroak, Drapion, Weezing, Venomoth, and Ariados.
Rainer, Sparky, and Pyro, Leaders of the Stone Town Gym Edit
Also known as the Eevee brothers, Rainer, Sparky, and Pyro were asked by the Pokémon League to open an official gym in Stone Town after a similar gym in the Unova region proved to be successful. The three brothers agreed, and their specialty is Pokémon that evolve via the Evolutionary Stones.
Their younger brother Mikey is a traveling Pokémon trainer, who’s Starter Pokémon is an unevolved Eevee, and who's team consists primarily of Pokémon that evolve via the Evolutionary Stones.
Each Eevee brother uses one of the Eeveelutions – Rainer: Vaporeon, Sparky: Jolteon, and Pyro: Flareon. In addition, Rainer also has a Cloyster and a Starmie, Sparky a Raichu and Exeggutor, and Pyro a Ninetales and Arcanine.
Sabrina, Leader of the Saffron City Gym Edit
An honest-to-God psychic, Sabrina was born with the many supernatural powers, including teleportation, telepathy, psychokinesis, and transmutation. Sabrina became the leader of the Saffron Gym after using her Abra, Drowzee, and Venonat to defeat Kiyo, the Master of the Fighting Dojo (which was the previous Saffron City Gym).
Sabrina has a number of powerful Psychic-type Pokémon, including Abra, Kadabra, Alakazam, Wigglytuff, Venomoth, Golduck, Slowbro, Gengar, Hypno, Exeggutor, Starmie, Mr. Mime, Jynx, Ariados, Xatu, Espeon, Slowking, Wobbuffet, Girafarig, Grumpig, Metagross, Gallade, Swoobat, and Sigilyph.

The former Saffron City Gym Leader, Kiyo is a lifelong martial artist who trains and raises Fighting-type Pokémon.
He was challenged for the position of the Saffron City Gym Leader by Sabrina, a Psychic-type trainer. Upon his defeat, Sabrina took over as Gym Leader, and the Fighting Dojo was disbanded as an official gym, and his badge, the Fighting Badge, was discontinued. However, Kiyo and some of his students keep the dojo open to Pokémon trainers who want to learn how to fight.
Like his master, Elite Four member Bruno, Kiyo trains both himself and his Pokémon, and he will not accept any student who will not train alongside his or her Pokémon.
Kiyo is a Fighting-type trainer, and his team consists of Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Hitmontop, Tyrogue, Primeape, Machoke, and Poliwrath.
Blaine, Leader of the Cinnabar Island Gym Edit
A highly intelligent, riddle-loving man who’s been the Cinnabar Island Gym Leader for well over half his life, Blaine is considered one of the top Fire-type Pokémon trainers in the world. He became the leader of the Cinnabar Island Gym over 40 years ago, after defeating the Gym Leader of the Seafoam Islands, who used Water- and Ice-type Pokémon. Not long after becoming the Cinnabar Island Gym Leader, Blaine found a Magmar on the Island’s volcano and captured it. That Magmar quickly became Blaine’s strongest Pokémon, and it eventually evolved into Magmortar.
Blaine is close friends with Sean Moore, the former Lavaridge Town Gym Leader and onetime member of the Hoenn Elite Four who also specializes in Fire-type Pokémon. He is also considered a mentor to Moore’s granddaughter, Flannery, the current Lavaridge Town Gym Leader.
His Pokémon team consists of Charizard, Clefable, Ninetales, Parasect, Primeape, Arcanine, Dodrio, Golem, Rapidash, Chansey, Kangaskhan, Flareon, Typhlosion, Magcargo, Houndoom, Blaziken, Camerupt, Torkoal, Infernape, Rhyperior, Emboar, and his strongest Pokémon, the recently-evolved Magmortar. He also uses Vulpix, Growlithe, Ponyta, and Magby to take on lower-level challengers.
Blaine’s Pokémon Edit
Blaine’s Magmortar♂ Edit
Blaine’s strongest Pokémon, he captured Magmar many years ago in the Cinnabar Island Volcano, and the two have since become an inseparable and extremely powerful team.
After years of training, Blaine’s Magmar evolved into Magmortar. Magmortar has a son, Magby, whom Blaine uses to battle lower-level challengers who wouldn’t be a match for Magmortar.
Over the years, Magmortar has learned many attacks, including Fire Punch, Fire Blast, Flamethrower, Skull Bash, Thunder Punch, Sunny Day, Confuse Ray, Body Slam, Overheat, Thunderbolt, Low Kick, Psychic, Focus Blast, and Rock Slide. Currently, Magmortar knows Lava Plume, Thunder Punch, Brick Break, and Clear Smog.

Orange Islands Edit
Giovanni, Leader of Team Rocket Edit
The head of Team Rocket
In addition to his position as the head of Team Rocket, Giovanni is also the former Gym Leader of Viridian City. However, he abdicated his position as Gym Leader some time ago.
After a number of failures, Giovanni was astonished that Jessie, James, and Meowth were finally able to complete an assignment – the theft of an entire set of evolutionary stones. He rewarded them for their good work by having the Team Rocket Delibird bequeath them with two Dragon-type Pokémon, Dratini and Bagon.
Giovanni was responsible for the creation of Mewtwo, but the powerful Psychic-type Pokémon broke free from his control and escaped. One of Giovanni’s top priorities is the recovery and subjugation of Mewtwo. In addition to Mewtwo, Giovanni is interested in the capture and subjugation of all Legendary Pokémon.
Giovanni has many strong Pokémon, including Persian, Beedrill, Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Raticate, Fearow, Arbok, Sandslash, Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Vileplume, Venomoth, Dugtrio, Primeape, Machamp, Golem, Tentacruel, Dodrio, Muk, Cloyster, Gengar, Onix, Steelix, Hypno, Kingler, Electrode, Marowak, Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Hitmontop, Weezing, Rhyhorn, Rhydon, Rhyperior, Kangaskhan, Pinsir, Tauros, Gyarados, Ditto, Crobat, Shuckle, Scizor, Heracross, Houndoom, Skarmory, Delibird, Aggron, Sableye, Honchkrow, Garchomp, Gliscor, Yanmega, Tangrowth, Electivire, Magmortar, Hippowdon, Krookodile, and more.
Cassidy and Butch/Team Rocket Edit
The “other” Team Rocket duo, Cassidy and Butch are far better at being the bad guys than Jessie, James, and Meowth. They are among Team Rocket’s top duos, and have been tasked with directives from senior Team Rocket officials and even, on occasion, by “the Boss” Giovanni himself.
A few months after the opening of the Battle Colosseum, Cassidy and Butch attempted to steal the new Frontier Brain’s Pokémon from him, using their arsenal of powerful Pokémon; however, they weren’t even close to a match for Ash and his team, and he was able to detain them long enough for Officer Jenny to arrest them.
Ever since their rookie days at Team Rocket Academy, Cassidy and Butch have been rivals with Jessie & James and that rivalry is still strong today. The two were both flummoxed and incensed when Jessie & James stole a complete set of evolutionary stones which led to the Boss bequeathing Jessie & James with two Dragon-type Pokémon, Dratini and Bagon, instead of to them, who instead got an Abra and a Machop, respectively.
The two of them have strong Pokémon that complement each other well. Cassidy’s lineup includes Raticate, Houndoom, Sableye, Tentacruel, Granbull, Charizard, Pidgeot, Scyther, Miltank, Wormadam (Trashy Cloak), and Abra, while Butch uses Primeape, Hitmontop, Mightyena, Cloyster, Shuckle, Aggron, Fearow, Pinsir, Tauros, Mothim, and Machop.
Iron-Masked Marauder Edit
A Pokémon bounty hunter employed by Team Rocket, the Iron-Masked Marauder has captured or stolen dozens of strong Pokémon. He answers directly to Giovanni.
Among the Pokémon in his collection are Tyranitar, Scizor, Sneasel, Houndoom, Ariados, and Noctowl.
Pokémon Hunter J Edit
A former Pokémon trainer, J began her journey in Sinnoh, but was disqualified from the Pokémon League in the first round of the Lily of the Valley Conference due to her cruel and malicious battle style, and subsequently banned from any and all Pokémon League activities, including tournaments, competitions, contests, and even gym battles.
J has since made a name for herself as a Pokémon poacher, hiring henchmen to aid her in the capture and theft of Pokémon to sell on the black market. She made an enemy out of traveling Pokémon trainer-turned-Frontier Brain Ash Ketchum during his Sinnoh journey, and she remains one of the few persons (human and Pokémon alike) that he actually hates.
J has numerous strong Pokémon that are notorious for their high levels and mean streaks as long as their trainer’s. Her Pokémon, which she keeps aboard her airborne base, include Salamence, Ariados, Drapion, Fearow, Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Golbat, Vileplume, Tentacruel, Golem, Gengar, Skarmory, Tyranitar, Sableye, Aggron, Sharpedo, Glalie, Metagross, Toxicroak, Rhyperior, Electivire, and Magmortar.
Other characters Edit
A Ditto specialist, Duplica is a friend of Ash’s.
Duplica has captured a number of Ditto that are unique – one of her Ditto can’t change sizes; another struggles to change its face. She also has a Shiny Ditto, which she rescued from the clutches of Team Rocket with the help of Lance, the Pokémon Champion; this Ditto was experimented on by Professor Sebastian and Dr. Namba until it could transform into any Pokémon at will.
Todd Snap Edit
A professional Pokémon photographer, Todd Snap is a friend of Ash’s, who covered the opening of the Battle Colosseum.
Although Todd is not a Pokémon trainer by trade, he does have a small team of Pokémon in order to more easily travel the world. His Pokémon include Tropius, Rhydon, and Dewgong.
A professional surfer, Victor lives on Seafoam Islands with his Pokémon partner, Puka (a rare blue-eyed Pikachu that knows the move Surf, along with Light Screen, Rain Dance, and Thunder).
Ash first met Victor on his journey through Kanto; they met again years later when Ash was training to become a Frontier Brain. Although Victor and Puka could not teach Ash’s Pikachu the move Surf, they still had a good time together (even when the older Pikachu was able to use a combination of Rain Dance and Thunder to knock out the younger Pikachu during a practice battle).
Victor’s Pokémon Edit
Victor’s Pikachu “Puka”♂ Edit
Victor’s partner and best friend, Puka is a rare Pikachu that knows the move Surf. It also knows Light Screen, Rain Dance, and Thunder.
In between competing in the Sinnoh League and becoming a Frontier Brain, Ash and his Pikachu came to the Seafoam Islands for training and challenged Victor and Puka to a practice battle. While Pikachu was extraordinarily powerful, it was no match for the older Pikachu’s combination of Rain Dance and Thunder attacks. Victor and Puka were unable to teach Ash’s Pikachu Surf, but they succeeded in teaching Pikachu Light Screen.
Fire Chief Aidan Edit
A firefighter on the Orange Islands, Fire Chief Aidan uses Water-type Pokémon to assist him as a search and rescue team. He is renowned throughout the Orange Archipelago for his skills as a firefighter and as a Pokémon trainer, and is a Fire and Rescue Grand Prix Champion.
Chief Aidan trains a variety of Water-type Pokémon as firefighters, all led by his former Team Wartortle leader, now a Blastoise. His current firefighting team consists of Blastoise (the team leader), Feraligatr, Swampert, Empoleon, and Samurott.
Chief Aidan’s Pokémon Edit
Chief Aidan’s Blastoise♂ Edit
The former leader of Team Wartortle, Blastoise is an old friend of Ash’s Squirtle from the Orange Islands. These days, Blastoise is Captain Aidan’s best firefighter and leader of his team of Starter Pokémon (consisting of Feraligatr, Swampert, Empoleon, and Samurott). However, while it’s a powerful Pokémon in its own right, Blastoise isn’t trained for Pokémon battles.
Over the years, Blastoise has learned many attacks. Currently, Blastoise knows Protect, Ice Beam, Brick Break, and Hydro Cannon, which it taught to Ash’s Squirtle while training with it. Blastoise’s Ability is Torrent, which increases the power of Water-type attacks when its weakened.
The caretaker of the Charicific Valley Natural Reserve
Liza is a childhood friend of Clair, the Blackthorn City Gym Leader, and the two often train their Charizards together. She is also an acquaintance of Ash Ketchum, who left his Charizard at the Charicific Valley for training.
Liza’s personal Charizard, Charla, is a powerful Pokémon, and it knows DragonBreath, Aerial Ace, Brick Break, and Blast Burn. Charla and Ash’s Charizard have also struck up a romantic relationship, and Ash is currently raising the two Charizards’ son, Charmander.
Liza’s Pokémon Edit
Liza’s Charizard “Charla”♀ Edit
Liza’s personal Charizard, Charla was hatched and raised in the Charicific Valley by Liza, the Valley’s caretaker.
When Ash Ketchum left his Charizard at the Charicific Valley for training, Charizard became smitten with Charla. She eventually returned Charizard’s affections, and together they have a child, Charmander.
While not as experienced in battle as Ash’s Charizard, Charla is still a powerful Pokémon, and knows DragonBreath, Aerial Ace, Brick Break, and Blast Burn. Charla’s Ability is Blaze, which increases the power of Fire-type attacks when its weakened.
Daisy Oak Edit
The granddaughter of Professor Oak and older sister of Gary, Daisy runs the Pallet Town Beauty Salon for both humans and Pokémon. At the age of 10, Daisy received a Chansey from her grandfather, but did not leave Pallet Town to go on a Pokémon journey. However, she has, on occasion, participated in Pokémon Contests throughout the Kanto region, and is a recipient of four Contest Ribbons.
Although not a traveling Pokémon trainer like her younger brother, Daisy has captured and raised a party of six: Chansey, Clefable, Wigglytuff, Rapidash, Ledian, and Jumpluff.
Magikarp Salesman Edit
A con artist who sells Magikarp and other weak Pokémon to suckers.
Sean Moore, former Member of the Hoenn Elite Four Edit
The former Gym Leader of the Lavaridge Town Gym, Sean Moore gave up his position as Gym Leader to become a member of the Hoenn Elite Four. After three years, he retired from the Elite Four and returned to Lavaridge Town to oversee his granddaughter, Flannery, succeed him as the town Gym Leader.
Mr. Moore’s elite team of Fire-type Pokémon consists of Charizard, Typhlosion, Blaziken, Ninetales, Arcanine, Rapidash, Magmar, Flareon, Magcargo, Houndoom, Camerupt, and Torkoal.
Wild Pokémon Edit
On his first day as a Pokémon trainer, Ash tried to capture a Spearow by throwing a rock at it. Enraged, Spearow led its flock in a retaliatory attack until it was driven off by Pikachu.
After Ash competed in the Indigo Conference, he returned to Pallet Town, where he ran into that same Spearow, only now it was a Fearow who bullied a flock of Pidgey and Pidgeotto. Eventually, Ash’s Pidgeotto evolved into Pidgeot and became the flock’s protector. Ever since, Fearow and Pidgeot have maintained a fierce rivalry.
Fearow has a number of powerful attacks at its disposal, including Drill Peck, Drill Run, Mirror Move, and Hyper Beam. It’s ability is Keen Eye, which prevents a loss of accuracy and keeps away weak opponents.
A wild Pokémon, Jigglypuff was encountered by Ash, Misty, and Brock outside of Neon Town. It originally couldn’t sing, but with the help of Misty, Jigglypuff found its voice; unfortunately, Jigglypuff’s song put everyone who heard it to sleep, which upset the Balloon Pokémon so much that it grabbed a marker and used it to draw on the faces of everyone who fell asleep.
Jigglypuff’s goal became to find somebody – anybody – who could listen to its song in its entirety without falling asleep, and it began to follow Ash and his friends around Kanto, the Orange Islands, Johto, and into Hoenn.
Jigglypuff eventually found a Pokémon who could listen to its song: a Whismur, who’s Soundproof Ability allowed it to remain awake, although it fainted from damage during Jigglypuff’s second performance.
Shortly after Ash became a Frontier Brain, Jigglypuff showed up at the Battle Colosseum. Pleased to see its old friend, Jigglypuff introduced Ash to its family (its mate, Whismur, and child, Igglybuff). Ash was happy to see Jigglypuff, but was once again put to sleep by its song, causing it to draw on his face (for old time’s sake) before waking him up with Wake-Up Slap.
Over the years, Jigglypuff has learned many attacks, including Sing, Double Slap, and Pound. Currently, Jigglypuff knows Sing, Bounce, Wake-Up Slap, and Hyper Voice. Jigglypuff’s Ability is Cute Charm, which infatuates its opposite-gendered foe when Jigglypuff gets hit by a physical attack or uses a physical attack.
A Shiny Pokémon, Charizard came to the Charicific Valley in order to prove how tough it was. It was immensely strong, able to defeat many of the Valley’s Charizard, including Ash’s. However, it was finally defeated when Lance, who was visiting the Valley at the time, challenged Charizard with his own and was able to overcome the Shiny Charizard’s strategic attacks. Humbled, Charizard was invited by Liza, the Valley’s caretaker, to remain and train with the other Charizard.
Charizard knows Sunny Day, Fire Blast, SolarBeam, and Thunder Punch, and has the rare Ability, Solar Power, which raises its Special Attack in the sunlight at the cost of some of its health. It also carries a Heat Rock which increases the duration of Sunny Day.
