Characters / Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Reflecting Balance
The Main Characters
A young Shinx from Lightning Plateau who moved to Fenix Town in order to train at the local dojo there, and to escape the pressure of being next in line to be the leader of the Luxray pride, due to being the son of the current leader.
- Character Tics: Often rubs his forelegs together when nervous or embarrased.
- Disappeared Dad: It is mentioned in a conversation with Hercules that Blitz's father is missing. We learn more about what happened when Blitz's backstory is revealed in Chapter 22.
- Heroic B.S.O.D.: Chapter 22 shows he had one after accidentally doing permanent damage to Charge the Luxio's leg during their fight, this incident being what ultimately resulted in Blitz moving to Fenix Town to continue his training there.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: While he is a regular Shinx, he feels this way because he is treated differently from the other Shinx in the pride since almost the entire pride expect him to become their new leader when he gets older.
- Shock and Awe: He's an electric type Pokémon.
A young Eevee with five older siblings, who feels as if she is not taken seriously because of her age. She started a rescue team with Blitz in an attempt to prove what she is capable of.
- Heroic B.S.O.D.: Has one after realizing that she didn't know Blitz as well as she thought upon learning his backstory, and believing that she had failed to be a good friend for him since he didn't trust her enough to tell her the truth.
- Non-Elemental: She's a normal type Pokémon.
A young Mienfoo that was found unconscious in Meridian Forest by Sera and Blitz. He is usually in a cheerful mood, despite not having any memories of who he is.
- Amnesiac Hero: Doesn't remember who he is.
- Cheerful Child: Seems to mentally be a bit younger than his teammates, and is cheerful most of the time.
- Naďve Newcomer: Due to not having any memories, Blitz and Sera have to explain to him how things are around the town, and how things work.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: His name was given to him by his teammates, as he doesn't remember his real name.
Major Supporting Characters
A mysterious Elgyem who for some reason seems to have an interest in Chiaki.
- Psychic Powers: Is a psychic type Pokémon.
- The Speechless: Based on the fact that she needs to learn how to use her telepathy in order to communicate more clearly than she can with body language and when discussing something with her father, making her fingers flash in different patterns, it is suggested that she is incapable of speaking.

A Gothitelle who is the current town oracle of Fenix Town.

- Making a Splash: Became a water type after evolving into a Marill. She already knew some water moves before then, though.
- Super Senses: After evolving, she can hear things from a distance and pick up on even some faint noises, which is one of her most useful skills as a part of Sera's rescue team.
