!!House Pierrot

The largest ruling House in Sinnoh and the chief protectors of the region. Currently, they hold four Gyms, two Elite Four positions, and are the house of the current League Champion.

'''Leader:''' Lord Byron Pierrot\\
'''Knight class:''' Earth\\
'''Colors:''' Green and silver\\
'''Territory:''' Oreburgh City, Jubilife City, Eterna City, Eterna Forest, Celestic Town, Canalave City, Iron Island, Mt. Coronet\\

* AnimalMotifs: Their mascot is a Steelix -- steadfast, stalwart and strong.
* ArchEnemy: Their infamous long-running feud with [[TokenEvilTeammate House Tantibus]] has led to dozens of minor kerfuffles and at least one full-out war. As of the later generation, they seem to be taking steps to ease tensions in the wake of Tantibus's HeelFaceTurn.
* DestructiveSavior: Given that they have SuperStrength as their hat, this happens more often than they would like to admit.
* {{Expy}}: Very much like [[Literature/HarryPotter House Gryffindor,]] though their reputation for taking in Knights rejected by other Houses is more reminiscent of Hufflepuff. Ironically, their colors are identical to those of its greatest enemy, Slytherin.
* FantasticRacism: Downplayed. While not nearly to the level of their rivals House Tantibus, they can be rather condescending to the non-Earth Knights they train, often .
* IdiotHero: If they see someone in trouble, they'll instantly jump in to help...even if they don't know what they're doing. A common saying among the other Houses is, "A Pierrot's heart is bigger than his brain."
* SuperStrength: 70% of their members are Earth Knights, who are famous for this trope.

Tantibus, he ''meant'' it.
* ArchEnemy: Their infamous long-running feud with [[TokenEvilTeammate House Tantibus]] has led to dozens APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil: He was Tobias' personal student before Nando, which could explain his feelings of minor kerfuffles and at least one full-out war. As of the later generation, they seem to be taking steps to ease tensions in the wake of Tantibus's HeelFaceTurn.

Are we talking about Makoto or [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda Tai Lung?]]
* MeaningfulName: "Makoto" is a philosophical concept that can be defined as letting nothing stand
in Knights rejected by the way of a goal that must be achieved, befitting the lengths he's willing to go to to fulfill his ambitions.

other Houses apprentices, Nando included, so be it.
* NotSoDifferent: Like Nando, he came to see Tobias as the father he never had.
* PsychoSupporter: He took Tobias' philosophy of self-reliance and tailored it to fulfill his own ambitions.

!!TearJerker - ''Dragonfly Star''

* The Heartless and Homeless arc. House Tantibus is waging war against House Pierrot, and Hearthome Church, led by Nando's father, is supporting the former and forcing his entire family to do so as well.
** Mr. Solista holding an anti-Pierrot rally in Hearthome City -- and Nando having to stand by and watch his neighbors and his family tear apart and spit on the flag and colors of the House he's struggled to prove his loyalty to for years.
** At least there, they don't make him participate. During an emergency meeting of House Pierrot, the idea of electing a single champion to represent them instead of sending every single member at once comes up. No prizes for guessing who Cedar suggests throwing into the ring as a "test".
** When the rest of House Pierrot is preparing for battle, Byron actually takes Nando aside and (in a rare display of sympathy) gives him a chance to opt out of the fighting, because he understands how important family is. Nando refuses on the spot, because he knows House Pierrot would never forgive him for choosing his family and an enemy House over them, even though it clearly pains him to do so. The conversation goes something like this:
-->'''Byron:''' Listen. I know your family...doesn't exactly agree with what we're doing. And I'm the last person to say that family issues should be separate from House loyalty. But I want you to know that if this is one battle you can't fight in good faith, I'll understand.\\
'''Nando:''' No, sir. I appreciate your consideration, but if ever there was a time for my loyalty to House Pierrot to be questioned, this is not it. You took me in with open arms when others saw fit to cast me out. You gave me a home and a family that's loved me more in five years than my birth family has in fifteen. The least I can do is return the favor. My brothers are here...''(chokes up)''...and I will fulfill my sworn duty to stay with them until the end.\\
'''Byron:''' Do you want to know something? Sometimes I wish my other soldiers were as loyal as you. ''(embraces him)''
** Somehow, the fact that Byron praises Nando for staying loyal to his House makes it all ''worse.'' Through the years, he's grown to regard him as a [[ParentalSubstitute father figure]] in place of his own parents, who prefer his brother over him, and [[WellDoneSonGuy wants Byron's approval]] as much as the other Pierrots, and now he finally gets it by betraying his own family, something he clearly feels horribly guilty about, even if it's for a good reason.
** The first battle comes and goes, and House Pierrot emerges victorious. Everyone is cheering, celebrating, some even rubbing their victory in their rivals' faces...except Nando, who simply bears a somber expression as if saying [[PyrrhicVictory "I am already paying the price for going against my family's wishes".]]
