First Appearance Here
Psyche was born in Nimbasa City, but when she was five, her mother died. Shortly afterwards, she was nearly fatally injured by a gang of Scrafty on Route 4, which left her with an incredibly damaged leg, torn vocal cords, and a blown ear drum in one ear. After this, her father and older brothers left her to be Raised by Gothorita
in Lostlorn Forest. To this day, she still fears and hates her father, and has an intense antipathy toward most humans, but is slowly getting better.
After a short week or so in the PMD universe, she came back to Unova, and was promptly disowned by her Gothitelle Elders, after which she decided to follow Trip, Straw, and Eskay, attempting the Gym Challenge. More info to come.Pokeform
- Badass Bookworm: Odd case: She's quiet, reserved, always eager to show her intelligence... but is just learning how to read. Her through knowledge of psychology and battle tactics shine in a pinch, however, and she's been known to take on many more opponents than one at a time. Blindfolded.
- Big Eater: All that telepathy drains some calories, dang it.
- The Chessmaster: Is very manipulative when it comes to others due to growing up with Gothita Line members, and it's In the Blood since she's a descendant of Aiura.
- Cute and Psycho: Shows tendencies of some deeper trauma every now and then...
- Deadpan Snarker: And how.
- Death Seeker: Isn't quite fond of her past.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: She's certainly got her sarcastic and snappy moments, but she's beginning to open up to her newfound friends.
- Ditzy Genius: Somewhere between this and Genius Ditz. She's incredibly smart... when it comes to strategy, manipulation, a forest, or psychology... Otherwise, she's completely clueless. And definitely don't ask her for directions outside of a forest.
- Drama Queen: Has. This. In. Spades.
- Guile Hero: See The Chessmaster.
- Handicapped Badass: Just take a good, long look at her description again.
- Manipulative Bitch: And how.
- No Sense of Direction: Her lack of direction is legendary.
- Not Good with People: Type 1
- Official Couple: With Eskay, following their Sleep Cute.
- Psychic Powers : She's telepathic and telekinetic, and shows it in battle.
- Single-Target Sexuality: Is only romantically interested in Eskay.
Common to all of her Pokémon:
- Psychic Powers: All of her Pokémon are Psychic. Psyche prefers them most because she can't communicate with other Pokémon as well.
- Shout-Out: To Magic: The Gathering. Each of her mons represent a different color combination. Some more of a stretch than others, admittedly, though less so in the AU. Their OU!Counterparts tend to exhibit the positive attributes, while their AU!Counterparts are the more dark and extreme attributes. Psyche rounds out the color pie with Black. (Though, She's more Green/White in the AU.)
#1 Selene the Gothitelle (Color Combo: Green/White)
- Cool Big Sis: Psyche's best friend and adoptive sister, she's always willing to give her advice and cheer her up.
- Lunacy: The main schtick of Gothorita in general, really.
#2 Galahad the Gallade (Color Combo: White)
#3 Khione the Jynx (Blue/White)
#4 Totem the Xatu (Black/Red)
#5 Horace the Slowking (Blue)
#6 Sandy the Musharna (Blue/Green)

#8 Hummingbird the Sigilyph (Red/White)
#9 Dixie the Zen Mode Darmanitan (Blue/Red)
#10 Hood the Scrafty (Black/Green)

Ren/ Renard Valenum Clavis
First appearance is here.
Ren is a Pokémon coordinator that comes from a wealthy family. While his current residence is in Castelia City, Ren travels to Johoto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh to participate in contests. In his teens, Ren had a bad accident while riding a Rapidash, the aftermath of which left Ren with a heavily scared and bum leg. Ren now walks with a cane because of this.
Ren is a graduate of the La Rousse College of Art and Technology, where he discovered his talent for Pokémon coordinating and opted to become a professional coordinator. After a few successful years of running contest circuits, Ren gained recognition as a coordinator and gained sponsorship. Ren has since branched off from contests and is currently making a name for himself in Pokémon Musicals.
Ren travels with the J-Team started with a chance meeting with Carol at the Humilau Pokémon center.
- Arsenal Attire/Stun Cane: Ren has a cane that really a stun baton.
- Cane Fu: Ren isn't afraid to use his electrified cane on anybody or anymon who tries to assault him.
- Crazy-Prepared: After deciding he was joining the J-Team, Ren was smart enough to go to a Pokémart and buy everything he might need, then go and make some outfits to carry it around in.
- Defiant to the End: Subverted. When captured by Cipher and tortured for information and compliance, Ren just kept calm insulted his interrogators until they left or Ren was unconscious. However, once Mammor threatened Kitsune, Ren became visibly angry and agreed to the demands. Until Mammor started gloating.
- In Touch with His Feminine Side/ The Dandy: Ren is a thin, sharply dressed man who can cook, sew, has a few pink outfits in his closet, and he won't bat an eye if a screaming psycho with an itchy finger holds a gun to his forehead.
- Let's Get Dangerous: During the Croagunk Challenge Cup, Ren's final opponent started mocking Ren and his mon for being a coordinator and contest mon and being weak because of it. Ren decided he had enough and proceeded to beat said opponent with Cherry Tapping.
- Limited Wardrobe: Zig Zagged. Ren changes his outfit often. However, he has multiple versions of each outfit of the pallet swap variety. All Ren's said color variations are color-themed after Pokémon move types. Here what Ren's options were until Mid-Holon.◊
- Mexican Standoff: Accidentally caused one between Carol, Arika and himself by being Wrong Genre Savvy.
- Mundane Utility: When Ren commands his team to use Round, his team sings show tunes.
- Nerves of Steel: After several kidnapping and/ or murder attempts, Ren won't flinch if some one tries to threaten him. Though it's another matter if you threaten someone else.
- Non-Idle Rich: Ren has near infinite funds, but that doesn't stop him from participating in life-threatening battles or exploring ruins.
- Scars Are Forever: Ren's left leg looks like something that belongs on a Frankenstien-style like monster, not a dandy.
- Sharp-Dressed Man: Ren has been seen in several nice outfits. He has 5-piece suit for contests, he currently alternates through several custom-made, knee-length frock coats, and he was introduced wearing a dress shirt, vest, tie, and slacks.
- Spiteful Spit: Ren spits blood in Odin's after the later punched Ren in the face.
- Spot of Tea: While Ren isn't British, he loves tea. In fact any time Ren is shown drinking something, he is drinking tea. Ren takes it a step further, the first beverage he offers anyone is tea.

Rex grew up in Goldenrod City with his mother, an ex-Gym Trainer by the name of Faith. His father left when he was young, cutting off all communication after a few months. While Rex’s mother was available to care for and love him, he never made any friends his own age. Most other children would go playing with their Pokémon on the routes outside of town, but he had to stay within the city, due to not having any of his own. Instead, when he wasn’t reading in his room, he would hang around the Game Corner, enthralled by the lights and sounds. Eventually, a generous patron gave him some spare coins after their own generous win, allowing him to purchase his own Pokémon as a prize. It was then that he met his Eevee, Rascal.
Rex and Rascal formed an immediate bond, the little boy excited to finally have a friend of his own. Rather than playing with others, they would explore various parts of town and have their own “adventures”. Eventually, as Rex became older, he became aware of the Pokémon battles that other people were partaking in. Deciding to use them as a way to finally get others to notice them, Rex challenged the first person he came across, a girl who had recently moved into the city. Unfortunately, she easily defeated him on three separate occasions. Devastated, Rex decided to give up on battling, returning to his childhood games. But, despite his love for Rascal, he still felt empty inside, the games no longer as amusing as they used to be.
Six months later, Rex became aware that the girl who defeated him was actually the new gym leader of the Goldenrod Gym, Whitney. Feeling a sudden twinge of resolve, Rex was determined to surpass her and all of the other trainers in Goldenrod. At the beginning of the next Johto League Season, Rex set out with Rascal, beginning what would later become an unusual adventure.
On his journey, Rex rescued a poached Zorua and Lapras (both of which were added to his team), became an apprentice researcher under Professor Elm, trained in Dragon's Den, and defeated fourteen of the sixteen Gym Leaders of the Indigo Plateau. He is currently undecided about what profession to pursue, something that is only further hampered by the constant antics of the J-Team.First Appearance:

Favorite Technique: Heart Stamp
A jaded young trainer, who hails from Unova. Robin would have been fine with staying at home, and lazing about; he thought journeying around, battling gym leaders and various trainers was a waste of energy. Seeing his Pokemon unsatisfied with this kind of living, however, was the push needed to convince himself to get up, see the world, and take in the sights. He decided to step forth, with his lifelong companions, and take a long, life changing journey...In Kalos, as he was moving, when he reached that epiphany. His mom is a world-class breeder.
- Butt Monkey: Often the center of misfortune. The icing on the cake is that it is usually his fault.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Flat "What.": Really, both he, and his Pokemon, have a habit of dropping these.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: His closest friend is his first Pokemon; a male Solosis (Now Reuniclus).
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's a jerk towards anyone he's unfamiliar with, but he warms up, if you're persistent enough.
- Morality Pet: All his Pokemon are this, for him. Robin would have stayed a sheltered, self centered jerk without his Pokemon driving him to push himself, and open up more.
- The Nicknamer: Subverted. Robin is one of the few characters in the RP that didn't nickname his Pokemon.
- Official Couple: With his Volcarona, to none of his teammates' surprise.
- Overprotective Trainer: His constant switching out in battle reflects his unwillingness to watch his 'mons get hurt. His Larvesta, however, definitely got the worst of it; as he cringes at the thought of her taking Flare Blitz recoil. He currently shows signs of growing out of it, though.
- Parental Hypocrisy: He has no qualms with going beyond what he can take. Fittingly, the now evolved Volcarona called him out on this.
Solosis -> Duosion -> Reuniclus
Robin's starter, and closest friend. Given to him when he was six, he's a cheerful Psychic-type, with a wanderlust stronger than any of his teammates. He and Robin share an almost brotherly bond. After the fight with Korrina, he learned how to contact with Robin, telepathically; eventually becoming the team's "service provider", later on.
- Beware the Nice Ones: He might be kind to nearly everyone he meets, but in battle, he is arguably Robin's strongest Pokemon.
- Foil: To his trainer. Reuniclus is outgoing, kind, and energetic, while Robin is...not.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Robin; the two act more like brothers towards each other, rather than Pokemon and trainer.
- Hive Mind: A weird example. As a Duosion, he had two brains. Both minds were basically the same being, and acted perfectly in-sync with each other. He's been with Robin for years, and the latter only caught on, when he evolved, and his minds were finally united.
- Keet: Definitely the most cheerful out of Robin's team; only matched by Azumarill.
- Mighty Glacier: He's powerful and bulky, and slow as molasses...
- Power Incontinence: Only once. While he usually has control over his powers, his evolution into a Reuniclus caused a psychic blast that put more than a dent on his trainer.
Timburr -> Gurdurr -> Conkeldurr
The biggest jerk in Robin's team. Acquired from a trade Robin made as a child, Timburr often disobeyed and berated his poor trainer; an issue shared with most traded Pokemon. Over time, he grew to trust and care for the boy, though he still has an issue with obeying orders.
A young Pokémon Trainer from Sinnoh who had the misfortune of having a Pokémon use Earthquake in a cave without knowing what would happen, killing her parents in a cave-in and losing her sister for a long time. Sakura was still a very kind person to everyone she met and was always willing to help if needed, it took her four years to find her missing sisters and now she's having a normal life with her sister, travelling around the world with her.
- A Girl and Her Dog: Sakura and her Arcanine, Grant.
- Apologizes a Lot - Has her moments.
- Beauty, Brains and Brawn - She's the Beauty to Hikari's Brains and Lyuri's Brawn.
- Berserk Button - For someone really sweet, she has a few, namely betraying her trust, insulting her sister, Pokémon abuse and attempting to harm someone with a Pokémon are among it, her bersek moments are more tame than most examples though, usually only verbal outbursts.
- Beware the Nice Ones - See Berserk Button above she also has a gun on her after almost being killed by Verax.
- Bunnies for Cuteness - Her Pokéform is Buneary.
- Break the Cutie - Edge did a number on her a short time before his death, she snapped out of it not too long after it, but it did make her start thinking about what she's going to do with her life.
- It gets worse once she's almost killed by Verax and goes into a Heroic BSOD where she starts to question just how useful she is, fortunately the other J-Team members snap her out of it.
- Brutal Honesty - To Herbert after he ends up making a bad situation even worse by being a huge jerk, emphasis on brutal
- Character Development - Was a meek kid in the past, changed to a sociable teen after the cave-in accident, but one that suffered major guilt problems related to the accident in question, she's increasingly growing out of it as the RP goes by, she also became more determined and bold as time went by.
- Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life - After her Break the Cutie moment above, she started to be somewhat like this.
- Distaff Counterpart - One could argue that she's unitentionally one to Eskay, with they having similar stories and even having the same attribute and both being quite kind. Seth lampshades this.
- Easily Forgiven - Tends to do this towards almost everyone.
- Except Umbra, though she's able to look past his actions eventually
- The Empath - As a Heart Of Gold, she can sense other's emotion and even pass her feelings to others with just her words.
- Freudian Trio - Forms one with her BFF Hikari and sister Lyuri, she being the Ego to Lyuri's Id and Hikari's Superego.
- Friend to All Living Things - Gets along pretty well with Pokémon.
- Incorruptible Pure Pureness - Can really look like this at times, however, during Orre she starts to show that she's not quite incorruptible
- Irony - Despite her name, she never had a Cherrim, but she did try to get one as a child.
- The most traumatizing moment of her life happened in a cave, so where else would she have her First Kiss with her boyfriend but a cave!
- Killer Rabbit - In a sense, she look and acts in a rather cute way and is a very frail and vulnerable girl, however she has plenty of strong Pokémon that one wouldn't expect her to have and that are more than capable of dishing out pain if provoked.
- Like Brother and Sister - Has said that she feels this way about Seth.
- Little Bit Beastly - Turned into an Arcanine hybrid during April Fools 2013.
- Meaningful Name - She likes cherry blossoms. "Saku" can also mean "Blossom", while "Ra" means "Good", so she's "Blooming Good", fitting with her implied Character Development in her backstory.
- Motor Mouth - Once had a moment like this and only once, she later said that her adoptive family had two of these, so some of it may have rubbed on her.
- Nice Girl - As nice as you possibly can be.
- Nice, Mean and In-between - The Nice to Lyuri's Mean and Hikari's Inbetween
- Not So Different - She can act like her sister sometimes, rarely, but she can.
- Official Couple - With Rawst.
- Parental Substitute - Confirmed to think of Grant as this.
- Pink Means Feminine - Played straight initially, but she started to wear different colors as well
- Rose-Haired Girl - Amusingly she had brown hair before until Lyuri decided to dye her hair, she ended up liking the result.
- Self-Made Orphan - And she's made clear that she's not happy about it.
- Shout-Out - She is a frequent source for Touhou references.
- Shrinking Violet - Was this as a kid, grew out of it once she realized that she was all alone and being like that wouldn't help her in any possible way.
- Signature Mon - Grant, her Arcanine.
- Stepford Smiler - Downplayed Type A, she tries to be as pleasant as possible, but she doesn't really hide her past from others and just tries to push the bad feelings away, otherwise she's genuinely a happy person.
- Speaks Fluent Animal - Somewhat, she can understand Pokémon and talk to them.
- The Heart - Appropriatelly enough, since she's a Heart of Gold.
- Trademark Favorite Drink - Has been seen drinking tea on some occasions and really likes it.
- Tears of Joy - When she finds her sister.
- Took a Level in Badass - Orre, a BIG one at that
- Took a Level in Jerkass - However, the grim start of the arc got to her, she still is quite nice, but considerably more prone to anger and violence.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl - The Girly Girl to her sister's Tomboy.
- What the Hell, Hero?? - Her first Beware the Nice Ones moment was one of these at Des after he attacked an innocent Pokémon.
- She flips out at Herbert when he only breaks Lyuri further after they find out Duke is snagged by Alexiel and even more after he attacks Lyuri once she reveals himself to be Alexia.
In The AU
The Team In General
- Put On A Box - Everyone that isn't Grant went through this at some point.
- The Bus Came Back: Rai, Duncan (previously unnamed), Phantom, Dusty, Halberd and Lusio all come back in Kalos.
- Undying Loyalty - Grant, Seth and, to a lesser extent, Dylan, are among the ones who clearly would go through anything for Sakura.
Sakura's starter and most loyal Pokémon, Grant was given to her as an egg and has been with her since, he spent most of his time as a Growlithe, but once the cave-in happened he evolved with the help of a Fire Stone Hikari had with her, just to be able to protect Sakura. Grant is also her main form of transport thanks to Extremespeed and also the leader and ace of the team, often taking care of the team and putting them in their place if trouble arises.
Despite being with Sakura by the longest time, Grant isn't very aware of her problems and thus gets surprised whenever Sakura starts acting differently from normal.
His held item is the Legend Bow, given to Sakura by Eskay, which protects him from Water type moves.
- The Ace: So much that he was the one who won all of Sakura's gym battles (except the one against Pryce where Seth took the spotlight) and still has to lose a battle.
- Animal Motif: As a human, his appearance is still very similar to the one of a Arcanine's.
- Berserk Button: Harming Sakura in front of him is a very bad idea and is probably going to end up with someone getting burnt.
- Canine Companion: To Sakura
- Fangs Are Evil: Averted, he still has fangs when in human form, but he's still a nice guy.
- Gentle Giant: Unless you press his buttons, he's a really nice guy.
- Hopeless With Tech: An issue he has since he started wearing one of the armbands, not even being able to use a remote control.
- Humanity Ensues: The first of Sakura's mons to make use of the Pokémon-To-Human armband.
- Lazy Bum: After Sakura got together with Rawst and started to spend more time with her sister, he got so much spare time now that he's enjoying it by becoming this.
- Lightning Bruiser: He's fast, strong and can take a lot of hits and heal, but his strongest moves cause recoil on him or have some other drawback.
- Meaningful Name: Grant comes from "Grand" and he's quite a big fellow, even as a human he's quite tall.
- Never Learned to Read: Justified in that it was never an issue until he turned human.
- Out of Focus: During Kalos
- Parental Substitute: Is this for Conan and later, Sakura.
- Playing with Fire
- Shipper on Deck: Frequently teases Sakura and Rawst while still supporting their relationship the best he can.
- Signature Move: While he's not the only one who can do it, he's pretty found of Flare Blitz and it's probably he used the most by now.
- Signature Mon: Sakura's.
- Team Dad: He's the one who takes care of the team most of the time.
Sakura's second Pokémon, given to her by Hikari, Serenity has been following Sakura around since the day they met and has always been following her orders with pleasure, Serenity is a kind Pokémon that, like Sakura, is always willing to help someone as long as it's possible. She's also shown herself to be a caring person, always looking forward for the other members of the team.
Sakura's first actual catch, she was found by her as she was skidding alone in Lake Verity, Stella took an interest in the girl upon seeing her and her two teammates and tried to approach them, Sakura was a very kind person to her and that pretty much was the only reason Stella wanted to come along, something that Sakura accepted with no problems.
Stella is a bit of a weird girl who is always looking for fun and is always helping fellow teammate Lily in her pranks, but she almost always ends messing them up one way or another, much to the amusements of others who see the failures. She's best friends with Lily and the others, except for Seth who finds her annoying.
The mostly quiet member of the team who isn't fond of battling in the slightest and is also a bit of a loner, according to Sakura he was found wounded by her in the wild and she decided to take it to the Pokémon Center to get some treatment, she did even though Shade looked like he was going to hurt her, since then he's been part of Sakura's team and she is the only human he seems to like, for some reason. He has a bit of a friendship with Stella, but it's mostly because she's the one who interacts with him the most.
The prankster of the group, Lily is always causing trouble through her pranks, together with Stella, however none of those pranks are malicious and she only does them for fun, she doesn't really want to hurt somebody, just cause some amusing embarassment, she does have a story with stealing though. She's best friends with Stella and is in good terms with the rest, with the exception of Seth.
Her held item is the Rocky Helmet.
Dusty is the unlucky member of the team that often causes problems accidentally, how bad it is tends to vary, even still, Sakura knows he doesn't do them on purpose so she doesn't mind it too much, he has some self-esteem issues due to him messing up everything he tries to do.
Seth (Scyther -> Scizor)
Seth is the shiny of the team and also one of the best fighters, he was Sakura's first capture during the RP and was caught in the Bug Catching Contest in the National Park, he was surprisingly easy to capture for her and has been with the team since.
His held item is the Life Orb
- The Ace: Subverted, he's probably right behind Grant as Sakura's main Pokémon in battle, but he also tends to be the one who loses almost all battles he takes part in, the one exception was against Pryce, because by that point he had taken a level in badass. Started to play it a bit straighter since then.
- Ascended Extra - Started as just the first newcomer to Sakura's team, he eventually became probably the second most notable of Sakura's Pokémon.

- Healing Factor: Knows Roost.
- Like Brother and Sister: With Sakura, according to the girl herself, but he himself agreed with her about it.
- Meaningful Name: Averted, he's one of Sakura's mons where this doesn't apply. In a bit of a stretch, Seth means "appointed" in Hebrew and he did get appointed to be Sylva's father.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: Averted, he mentions to Bishop that if Sakura ever started doing something bad, he wouldn't follow her blindly and would instead try to reason with her about it.
- Official Couple: With Regina

- Spot of Tea: Had a few moments like these with Sakura early on, seems to be done less frequently now.
- The Stoic: Downplayed as while he isn't one to show much emotion, he's still more emotive than most examples.

Daisuke (Ralts -> Kirlia -> Gallade)
A Ralts that followed Sakura out of Agrabah
and asked to join her team so that he could become stronger and be able to help those with problems, he's a fortune teller and as such he always carries a crystal ball around, he started as a rather emotionless mon himself, but upon evolving he became more emotive.

Sam was a normal guy who grew up in Kanto and took the Pokemon challenge at 15. After failing to beat Sabrina for the fith time, he realised he had more fun raising and taking care of pokemon than he ever did battling. So he retired from battling and became a breeder, offering help to whoever needed it and is still traveling to this day. To this day Sam maintains a light hearted attitude, looking for interesting pokemon to raise, and his next big adventure. He's loyal to his friends, and very protective of those closest to him.

The Team in General:
Grace is Sam's oldest pokemon, having been with him since he got her in a trade in Kanto. She is very sweet, but plays the straight woman for Sams goofy and carefree nature. She also helps him with his work as a breeder, being able to act as an interpreter for Sam. When Sam has more pokemon, she's generally the team mom and makes sure everyone's taken care of.
Leviathan (Shiny Magikarp->Gyarados)

A high-ranking researcher of The Pokédex - Extended Fanon Edition
who joins Tangent's run-in with the other PEFE researchers, helping organize some contributions. At age 23, he is a bit older than the other researchers and has put that time to good use, such as living in a Nidoran colony near Goldenrod city for a long time. "Cameos" on occasion.
- Acquired Poison Immunity: Nidoran Starter, Nidoran colony that welcomed him as one of their own, and since the Pokéverse has a Universal Poison...
- Heroic BSOD: Silent suffers one upon Maekrite's Snagging and Shadowfication
- Not Quite Back To Normal: Can now understand Monese thanks to having used the armband.
- Promoted Fanboy: Nidorans! — If in the original RP timeline he is an experienced Nidoran researcher, in the AU he has dedicated his PEFE studies wholly to this species. Going as far as to give them military training in Goldenrod.
- Weak, but Skilled: Trained his Pokémon to be this to counter everyone else being so insanely strong.
- Running Gag: Silent's Pokémon telling him "You suck at this!".
- Also, the smaller mons fighting for the position of head pet.
"This will allow me to take care of my Trainer […] Thanks, u Frithrah (Ho-Oh). […] for us Nidorans you mean so much."
Leader of the team, age 4note
, and the son of Silent's Starter Inka, Silent has known Maekrite from the day he was born. He wouldn't become Silent's Pokémon proper until some time after the official formation of PEFE, when Silent is called back to the road and Maekrite is selected by his colony to become Silent's new Pokémon
While loyal and careful, his belligerent tendencies and eagerness to see challenge where there's none get the best of him. He is also adamant and fairly judgmental of others, at some point even dismissing a potential teammate before she was even born
; he does this more because of self-confidence than out of pride or malice.
Maekrite is tasked to protect Silent as the Colony consider him an important element to their welfare. As such he is an excellent endurer and knows to attract attention to himself in combat or when he thinks his Trainer is at risk. In the alternate timeline, this was stressed further as, before that timeline's Maekrite is assigned to protect Silent (this time by Divine Mandate
), the Nidoran Assassins-like
order there set up military forces and spies to further accompany Silent while in the forests and the city.
"Wheeeeeeee~! I'm flying!"
A pretty childish Pokémon who goes around looking the world as if it was the happiest place on Pokéarth (duh). Dedicated to play pranks around the PEFE laboratories, now tags with Silent to talk at length of how fun
creatures like Hydreigon and Tyranitar are. He's known to have had an imaginary Trapinch friend.
Dintel was captured at the Hoenn Desert near the Mirage Tower, and has become good friends with Vlad and Gene, with whom also shared more than one childhood Noodle Incident
. He never met Silent in the alternate timeline, where he unknowingly raised an army to oppose Lelouch's invasion of Hoenn instead.
"<♥!>" (via pattern flashing)
Algira is the most moderate addition to the team, part of a swarm at the Fossil Research Center. She has a somewhat idealistic behaviour and tends to try and use her attributes to look for support from others. That doesn't mean she isn't also very protective of her team.
Following some not-yet undisclosed incidents, Algira has been promoted to lead Silent's team in the Orange Islands arc, but is returned to her normal status by Hoenn.
"Bad trainer! Doesn't give his Pokémon time to prepare!" (as he finds out Silent wants to leave him out from the battle against Celebi and Dialga)
One of Silent's old adventure companions back in the PEFE backstory days, and one of the Pokémon in his first run through Johto during his childhood. Was released after that to live a calm life at Goldenrod City. Remained active in the alternate timeline and eventually took part of the final battle against Primal Dialga and Celebi, where he attacked Celebi with a powerful soundwave.
"...zzZzz... ...Teammate... ...Family...
A recent addition to Silent's team, fathered by Roc; she got lucky as not even a month after she hatched she was able to meet a Legendary. As of Hoenn, is under the tutelage of Copahue and Harriet.
Due to some incidents back as DS's villa, Shahinne considers Every's Swablu, "Salamence", as her aunt, and officially calls her as such.
- Big Brother Mentor: To Shahinne. Also doubles as a complementing parent figure.
- Insecure Love Interest: To Harriet. Not having a good movepool, spending a couple of years as a HM slave and arriving to a team where everyone else already has other assigned roles does that to you. Shahinne fixes him, her way.
- Badass Bookworm: When she's not fighting, Sol spends most of her time reading books.
Harriet was one of the Murkrow in Crowley's gang, and spent most of the time following him with them just off camera. After evolving into a Honchkrow to help fend off a rival flock, she decided that being in a gang just wasn't her thing and joined Luke's team. She adjusted rather well and became a recurrent member of the team after the timeline divergence, getting along with Treeo specially. After arriving to Meteor Falls however, Shahinne takes an interest in her as an adoptive motherly figure, prompting Harriet to admit her feelings for Copahue as well.
With Shahinne needing family figures to raise her properly, Copahue and Harriet decide to move together, so Harriet is transferred to Silent's team.
- Glass Cannon: Much like Crowley, she's powerful but can't take a hit to save her life.
One of Silent's Pokémon in his first run as a Trainer. In the AU, he is called back into service when Silent runs into danger during the Goldenrod Invasion.
kinda have a confession to make..."
Silent's Starter, technically released. Little is known of her except that she is a member of the Goldenrod colony's breeding cabal and an outright Royal (evolution) in the AU. She is Maekrite's mother.
A Pokémon living happily at the Goldenrod Colony and breeding about five kits a year with Inka. However, in the alternate timeline, he is a Nidoking and comes to Silent's team at a particularly hard spot in order to stay with Inka. He is Maekrite's father.
- Combination Attack: Together with Inka, they perform awesomely for an Elemental Beam Spam Limit Break. They first try it on Goldenrod (off-screen), then against Matchsticks, killing him on the spot, and then against Primal Dialga, this time with far less effect.
- Limit Break: Ever wondered where Maekrite got those nifty beam-spam techniques? Breeding, of course.
- The Unreveal: After being only identified as (Maekrite's) “Dad” in his first appearances, Inka reveals during a conversation that his name is actually _____.
- Bit Character - mentioned once in the original timeline and appearing in two scenes in the AU.
- Bit Character - already retired, is shown in only one scene during the Orange Islands arc.
year old trainer from New Bark town in Johto, Slouch received his first Pokémon (A Totodile) at 10note
and started an adventure at 11note
Eventually, he managed to get all the badges from Kanto and Johto (As well as Hoenn, later on) but compared to a whole lot of other people on the team his adventure wasn't really that interesting. There weren't even any evil teams to take down or anything like that.
After finishing up with Hoenn, he went back to Johto to settle down for a couple months, before going on a flight to Sinnoh.
He didn't get far, though, before something weird happened (No-one knows what) and he became an NPC for some indeterminate amount of time. He did the usual NPC thing: Standing in place, repeating the same thing, not aging somehow, all that jazz. Needless to say, it got old fast. Fortunately, he returned to normal when the rest of the group came by. Pretty good timing, I might add. Was it fate? Was it simply dumb luck? More importantly, who cares?
During his travels, he has turned into an Ursaring, gotten stuck to the ceiling, turned into a blobfish, been revealed to have a Mind of Crystal, gotten to the quarter finals in the Gold Conference, and a whole bunch of other stupid stuff like that.
-Went to Unova instead of Sinnoh in the Lost Memories arc and stayed as an NPC, but besides that nothing much else changed
- And I Must Scream: He was an NPC for several years, trapped in the same place and repeating the same thing over and over.
- Author Avatar: Averted. Unlike some other characters, he has next to nothing in common with his author.
- Bad Liar
- Fail O'Suckyname
"My name's Slouch. Yeah, my parents were kind of dicks."
- Gravity Screw: His gravity was reversed while inside the Glitch Building, leaving him stuck to the ceiling.
- I'm Your Biggest Fan: Said during the Gold Conference by his only fan (Compare that to the other group members, who got hordes of rabid screaming fangirls/boys).
- Large Ham: Not usually, but as an Ursaring...
Slouch: MORE POWER! I NEED MORE POWER!
- Let's Get Dangerous: He's a slacker and a goof-off, but can kick a surprising amount of arse when he needs to.
- Meaningful Name / Punny Name: For some reason, he likes nicknaming his Pokémon this way.
- Self-Deprecation: All the time.
"So I am a Mind of Crystal. Well, I always knew my head was full of rocks."
- The Load: Except when he isn't. His author jokingly called him this once, and it stuck. Figures.
- Trademark Favourite Food: Bacon. No, he's not a goon.
Riptide (♂ Feraligatr)
Riptide was Slouch's first Pokémon, as well as his closest friend. He enjoys battling, but is a bit of a sore loser.
Described by Cynthia's Garchomp as being uncouth, brash, and utterly illiterate of combat etiquette, but having drive and being willing to do anything for his trainer's sake. Pretty accurate, actually, even according to Riptide himself.
Has a bit of a crush on Vesuvius.
's favourite target, and hates his guts for it. Doesn't often call him by his actual name, instead using things like "That lousy good-for-nothin' slippery smug sunnuva..." or "That friggin' overpowered jukebox" or "That pisshead"
-Seems to be kind of jealous of Lake
-Stayed with Slouch in Mistralton city during the AU arc
Vesuvius (♀ Typhlosion)
The second Pokémon to join Slouch's team, received as an egg from his uncle
. Along with Egbert, she seems to be the most level-headed on the team. She doesn't talk much, though.
Out of all the Pokémon of the team, she is closest to Riptide (What with having known him the longest) and is good friends with him despite their very different personalities. She isn't yet aware of his feelings towards her, though.
-Joined the resistance in the AU arc. Though she wanted to stay with Slouch, Riptide & Egbert, she thought joining the resistance was the right thing to do
-Is often called "Vess" for short
Egbert (♂ Exeggutor)
-Is Slouch's translator in the AU arc
Wally (♂ Forretress)
Not much is known about Wallynote
, besides the fact that he probably likes to keep to himself (Otherwise we would know more about him, wouldn't we? HAH!), ends almost everything he says with ellipses, and says the words 'like' and 'man' a lot. One thing's for certain, though: He has one of the most Awesome, Funny, Heartwarming and Strangely Capitalised backstories in all of fiction.
-Joined the resistance in the AU arc
Numbskull (♂ Marowak)
A bit of an oddball with a bit of a speaking problem. As in, he can only say one word (Bone). Numbskull was moved to the Johto safari zone from a clan of similarly speech-impaired Cubone and Marowak in Kanto.
Like many Marowak, Numbskull gets very mad if you take his bone. Un
like many Marowak, he also quite enjoys dancing, whether it be the hustle, a jig, or a simple happy dance. As Slouch put it, "For what he lacks in vocabulary, he more than makes up for in funk."
-Can seemingly understand Ludwig (A Golduck who can only say 'Quack') and, if the chatroom shenanigans are to be believed, Bob (A Wobbuffet who can only say 'Wobbufett')-Joined the resistance in the AU arc
- Bad with the Bone
- Berserk Button: Taking his bone off of him, apparently.
- Cloudcuckoolander: He also has his moments.
- Dishing Out Dirt: Thanks to Stone Edge and Rock Slide.
- Pintsized Powerhouse: Numbskull was powerful enough to almost completely destroy Elesa's gym by accident. He's just over three feet tall.
- Also, as fans of the games may tell you, Marowak has potential to be one of the strongest Pokémon of all in terms of physical attack, surpassing even Attack Form Deoxys.
- Precision-Guided Boomerang: Except on one occasion, when Cynthia's Lucario sent it flying out of the arena with a Psychic.
Numbskull was not happy.
- Verbal Tic: 'Bone'. Not really a verbal tic, but as there is no trope for One Word Vocabularies (Yet) this one will have to do.
Marina (♀ Dragonite)
Over the years, Marina's gone from being kind of nice to being a big jerk and then to somewhat less of a jerk. She has a pretty short temper (Most of the time) and tends to flip out when something happens to her in a battle that she considers 'rude' or 'unfair'.
-Joined the resistance in the AU arc
Nick (♂ Delibird)
A complete nutcase of a Delibird. Known for shouting a lot, being a real pain in the arse and pulling crap like stockings and coal from his tail sack instead of food.
Bernard (♂ Teddiursa)
The most recent addition to Slouch's team. A sleepy, carefree kinda guy.
Ava (♀ ★ Beedrill)
Astrid (♀ Tynamo)
"I'll be okay. I always come back, don't I?"

He has earned the badges in Kanto, Johto, Unova, Hoenn, and Sinnoh.

He was believed to be dead after a shipwreck in the Whirl Islands. This was later debunked.

Naida the Milotic

Hax the Haxorus
Hax is a Haxorus Straw met in Unova in Mistralton Cave. He has since grown into a powerful fighter. Valkon is know to be very annoying to him, due to the latter's varying intelligence.

Krakatau was one of Straw's first captures when he went to Johto. He cares for a lot of the younger mons on Straw's team, almost like their father. He has an nemesis in a pack of Mightyena he met in Hoenn. He is somewhat of a father figure to Ignis.

"What are you looking at so weirdly? There's nothing to see here."
Daffodil was first caught as a Bulbasaur in Celadon city. Though he is a Venusaur, he still has a child-like mindset. Just because he is child-like does not mean he isn't a good fighter. However, because of his child-like mind, he is very curious and can easily be tricked.

Talon the Archeops
".. / .- — / - .... . / .-.. —- .-. -.. / —- ..-. / .-.. .- -. —. ..- .- —. . ? / —- .-. / .- - / .-.. . .- ... - / .- -.-. -.-. —- .-. -.. .. -. —. / - —- / ...- .- .-.. -.- —- -. .-.-.-"note

A Flygon who has traveled to many different lands. He is a Delta Pokémon from Holon. Magellan was caught by a Silph worker who gave him to Straw's parents, who gave him to Straw. He has since been released so he can be with his mate, Chloro, and have a family.
Ignis the Pansear
Ignis is a Pansear that Straw received from Fool for Christmas. He often falls asleep, which has almost gotten him eaten by a Mightyena. He tends to be either asleep, or awake and full of energy. This leads to Straw and the others into having to track him down.
Envy the Shedinja
Envy was a Nincada that Straw received as a gift when he was seven. She, along with Aurora and Crescent, became Straw's Ranger partners. While investigating a poaching camp in Oblivia, Straw was attacked by a territorial Tyranitar. Envy leaped in front of Straw as the Tyranitar went for a killing blow on Straw. Envy ultimately dies of her injuries. However, Envy enters a Spirit Games Competition and wins, being reborn as a Shedinja.
Helryx the Starmie
Helryx is a Starmie Straw met while visiting an old hideaway of hi in Johto. She likes to observe things in order to learn about them. These findings are often written down in her notebook.
- Making a Splash:Water type.
- Psychic Powers:How she attacks, and writes in her notebook.
Iron Maiden the Cofagrigus
Iron Maiden, or Mai for short, is a Cofagrigus Straw found frozen in the Ice Path. She's really from 100 years in the past. Her former trainer, Sara Aspear, was found dead in the cave. After giving her former trainer a proper burial, Mai joins Straw's team. Due to being from the past, she doesn't quite get many things of the present.
Silence the Ninjask
A Ninjask Straw caught during the Bug Catching Contest. Little is known about him, since he never speaks. At all.
Misery the Absol
Misery is an Absol that Straw found loose in Opelucid City during the Dream World crisis. She suffers from a bit of a persecution complex as a result of her species. After Straw captures her, this lessens some. She is very protective of Straw, fighting off a possessed Beheeyem to keep him safe at one point.
Spyder the Porygon
A playful Porygon that Straw received as a gift from Nicole for Christmas. He enjoys flashing about, much to the amusement of younger Pokemon. Flashing is his preferred method of communication, but will speak if necessary.
Palutena the Sylveon
Palutena is the daughter of Aurora and Borealis, Rawst's Glaceon. As a child, she proved to be a cute, yet mischievous Eevee. This behavior only gets worse when she evolves into a Sylveon.
Catherine the Braixen
Straw's first Kalos Pokemon. She has a major crush on Straw, and is willing to do whatever it takes to break up him and Crewe. She constantly is flirting with Straw, much to his chagrin.
Satan the Vivillon
Despite his name, Satan is by no means evil. He is a dignified, honorable Vivillon, and has a certain fancy tone in his voice. Because of this, he does not like to engage in senseless fighting, only partaking in it when a battle arises.
Lucy the Espurr
Lucy is an Espurr with a bad control on her Psychic powers. When Straw first meets her, she accidentally blasts him with an attack. Despite this awkward first impression, Straw has been able to help her control her powers better. However, Lucy is still somewhat timid, a linger result of bullying by other Espurr and Meowstic in the wild.
Zangetsu the Honedge
Zangetsu is a unique Honedge in that he is the cursed form of the swordsman from the Sinnoh myths. While he is a Pokemon, albeit with an ironic Pokemon form, he cannot become human, a punishment for his crimes by Arceus. He still retains some of his apathy for Pokemon, but did not retain any sword skill, likely due to being a sword now.
Hades the Skrelp
Hades is a Skrelp Straw caught while fishing around Ambrette Town. He is very sarcastic, and usually looks to the negative side of things. All of this is done with a smirk on his face.
A 22 year old Pokémon Trainer from a nondescript town in Kanto near Viridian City. Tagg started his own Pokémon journey ten years before the events of the story with an unnamed Bulbasaur, making him one of the most experienced Trainers in the group.
Within the first few years of his journey, Tagg ended up collecting the badges of the Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn regions and had several run ins with Teams Rocket, Magma, and Aqua, as well as Cipher in Orre. During this time he also met Groudon and recieved a Blue Orb from him. At the age of 16 he tired of simply doing battles and joined the Expanded Pokedex Project
, which allowed him to explore a good portion of the world for science, and take down a Mega Corp.
in the process.
When he was 17, he traveled to Sinnoh for research and Gym Badges, and got involved in the fight against Team Galactic concurrently to DS' own journey, though neither was aware of each other at the time, and Tagg's own involvement was behind the scenes. Afterwards, he wandered around again, having many more adventures, before ending up at an airport at 19 and meeting the people that would become his closest friends.
Since then, Tagg's become a Mudkip, helped kill two glitches, helped take down a Team Rocket admin, earned all eight Unovan Gym Badges, ended up in a tie with Fool at the GC, helped calm Primal Dialga at the end of a month's stay in an alternate universe, and has gone on other crazy adventures with said friends.
First Appearance: Page 2
- Accidental Misnaming: During the infiltration of the Altru tower Tagg is mistaken for a Cipher operative of the name Bernaldo, even after he changes back to his regular outfit, to his extreme annoyance.
- Adventurer Archaeologist: Tagg is a researcher who can't help but end up adventuring.
- Another Side, Another Story: His concurrent adventures to Gamer and DS in the Hoenn and Sinnoh regions.
- Badass Bookworm: Tagg is both a skilled researcher and a skilled combatant, both in terms of Pokemon battling and hand to hand. Amongst the J-Team he's considered one of the strongest if not the strongest members of the group.
- Barrier Warrior: Tagg is capable of making Auric barriers, but in comparison to Crewe his are very weak and are only useful for buying time.
- Bash Brothers:
- Often teamed up with Gamer for Double Battles in earlier arcs, and they even teamed up to take the E4 challenge together.
- He and Tracer work very well together.
- Been There, Shaped History: Tagg has been present for some of the most important events of the Pokémon world, including the weather trio's clash and the events of Mt. Coronet, not even counting the things he's been up to since joining the J-Team.
- Berserk Button:
- Never treat a Pokémon like trash in front of him. For this reason he appears to hate Cipher and poachers of any stripe especially.
- Another happens to be harming or threatening harm to those he cares about, as Tokarev learnt the hard way.
- Best Served Cold: Tokarev tried to murder him at 13, and he's wanted revenge against him and Cipher for their crimes ever since.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Tagg is normally a pretty nice guy if rather untalkative, but if angered or if his friends are threatened, he is quite capable and willing to use his own bare hands to beat the daylights out of and/or use his Pokémon to hurt or even kill people.
- The Big Guy: In terms of height but not role (Though he can certainly kick ass if he has to), since Tagg is among the tallest out of all the Trainers still around.
- Blood Knight: It's very subtle, but on some level Tagg appears to enjoy a good fight.
- Brown Eyes: Has brown eyes and his Pokeform is a Swampert, a partial Ground type.
- Can't Stop The Signal: His task during the establishing operation in PEFE backstory was to ensure that evidence of an Evil Organization reached the media and he eventually ended up taking refuge in a Kantonese Embassy.
- Chain Pain: His most used form of Auric construct are chains for binding and/or whipping opponents. By the Conquest arc he's figured out how to make bladed chains for slicing and shredding opponents.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Becomes more apparent as the journey goes forward. It's a rather mild case though.
- Collector of the Strange: Tagg has amassed the largest amount of legendary artifacts of any single J-Team member over the course of his adventures.
- Combat Pragmatist: Was first shown to be one during the storming of the Sky Fortress and tends to be one in general during fight or die scenarios.
- Cursed with Awesome: Considered his transformation into a Pokémon during the PMD arc as this.
- The Cynic: Tagg's experiences have not exactly made him a believer in a just world and purely happy endings, but he's willing to fight for it anyway.
- Cynicism Catalyst: Nearly getting murdered by Cipher as a youth had a major effect on Tagg's worldview.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Was hinted to have one of these beforehand, but it really came to the fore during the mindscape miniarc when it was revealed that he was a survivor of a Cipher hit, which left him with a longstanding hatred for the organization.
- Darker and Edgier: His adventures in comparison to those of most of the other trainers, due to Tagg's tendency to go out into the middle of nowhere and fight nastier foes compared to the rest of the J-Team.
- Deadpan Snarker: Tagg's normal reaction to annoyance or stupidity is to snark.
- Defiant to the End: His answer when Verax tries to strange him to death with telekinesis? Simply grabbing his neck with an Aura construct in an attempt to at least make a Mutual Kill if he couldn't strangle him or snap his neck first instead.
- The Empath: Turns out to be Aura sensitive.
- Enemies List: Tagg has a list of all his adversaries in his possession.
- Enemy Within: Nihilist!Tagg, who represents his inner pain. Luckily, most of the time his other aspects are busy keeping him sealed away.]]
- Experienced Protagonist: Tagg had been a trainer for about nine years when the story started, and a very successful one at that.
- Eye-Obscuring Hat: Often invokes this when using Aura Sense since his eyes glow when it's in use.
- The Faceless: A common Running Gag was Tagg not having his face depicted for various reasons. This changed later on.
- Fish Out of Temporal Water: Ends up 600 years in an alternate AU future in PMD-R, and spends Holonquest in 15th Century Ransei.
- Friend or Idol Decision: Is forced to choose between letting Tokarev go or letting DS die. He chooses DS.
- Genre Savvy: Tagg tends to be pretty hard to fool, with Anja being one of the few beings that has ever outwitted him.
- Good Is Not Soft: Tagg would very much prefer not to fight unnecessarily and often attempts negotiation, but if that doesn't work he will end a threat in the quickest manner possible, which tends to be fairly brutal. He's also perfectly willing to kill if he deems it necessary.
- Guile Hero: What Tagg can't simply have his mons beat or blast into submission he merely outsmarts.
- Heroic BSOD: Has one after watching the Anville group get viciously attacked by a pack of Zoroark, and almost has another following the defeat of 'M. Other moments include the Oblivia arc and the AU arc.
- Hero of Another Story: Ended up unknowingly helping out both Gamer and DS in their own adventures before they'd even properly met.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Tracer.
- He Who Fights Monsters: In the Orre arc, he ends up murdering a large number of Cipher Peons and threatening Cipher as a whole with the same fate through a public video. Despite many of the J-Team calling him out on it, he doesn't come to a Heel Realization until Tangent does so. However, it doesn't quite stick until he's forced to choose between letting Tokarev go and letting DS die.
- Hold the Line: Does this in a flashback against a bunch of Team Galactic Grunts on Mount Coronet to serve as a distraction during the climax of the Team Galactic incident.
- Holding Back the Phlebotinum: The main reason that Tagg doesn't use the Adamant and Blue Orbs very often is a fear of getting overly reliant on legendaries to solve his problems.
- Humans Are White: Except for Tagg, who's black.
- In Harm's Way: Admits to DS in a phone call that his current life is the only one he feels comfortable in. Said life being an extremely dangerous one where tomorrow is not guaranteed.
- In the Hood: Tends to wear either a grey or green hoodie.
- It's Personal: Besides what Cipher did to him personally, Tagg really hates them for shadowing Doc, doing horrible experiments to Lina, injuring his friends bad enough to put them in the hospital, and brainwashing his apprentice.
- The Leader: Is generally considered the de facto leader of the J-Team following Anom and Jane's departure, as he tends to be the one that gets everyone on board for planning assaults and sets general team conduct.
- Maligned Mixed Marriage: Averted, no one has ever given Tagg and Fool any issues over their relationship.
- Making a Splash/Dishing Out Dirt: As a Mudkip and later Marshtomp and Swampert in the PMD universes or when using a human to Pokémon armband.
- Meaningful Name: Most of his named Pokémon have this.
- Mr. Exposition: If something needs to be explained, Tagg is often the one to do it.
- My Greatest Failure: Considers Anom's Yanmega's death and being unable to see through Anja and prevent Vyvyan's transformation into a Rayquaza as this.
- Nice Guy: Provided that you're not trying to kill or otherwise harm him or his friends, Tagg is a pretty nice guy.
- Nice Hat: Wears a blue baseball cap, and temporarily replaces it with a rice paddy hat for the Conquest arc.
- Not Good with People: Is only truly comfortable around other members of the group and his fellow researchers and even then he has problems at times.
- Pals with Jesus:
- Has a pretty good rapport with Groudon.
- He also appears to be at least on friendly terms with Uxie.
- Pay Evil unto Evil: His view on taking on Cipher.
- Perception Filter: The Someone Else's Problem field, which causes people to ignore him completely.
- Punch a Wall: Has done this about two times, and has injured his hands both times as a result.
- Remember That You Trust Me: Often has to be reminded after he starts to relapse back to his old behaviors, which is fairly often.
- Revenge: His goal regarding stopping Cipher.
- The Quiet One: Except when angry or excited. The former tends not to be pretty, as he happens to be a fan of the Precision F-Strike and the Cluster F-Bomb.
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: Following the end of the AU arc.
- Shoot the Dog: Considers himself the J-Team's unofficial Lillipup shooter.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: Probably has one of the filthiest mouths out of all the trainers, if not the filthiest, to his own admittance and chagrin, though it has abated as of late.
- The Smart Guy: Shared this role with Pentigan in the beginning, and still remains one of the most knowledgeable J-Team members regarding the world at large, both in its mundane and supernatural aspects.
- There Are No Therapists: In Tagg's case it's because most people simply wouldn't believe that most of his traumas had ever happened.
- Time Master: When using the Adamant Orb. In the PMD-B timeline Tagg's knowledge of the Adamant Orb is such that he can age mons to dust or turn them back into eggs at a massive scale.
- Transformation Trinket: Owns a human to Pokémon armband.
- Verbal Tic: "My friend," and later ellipses similar to Star's.
- Walking the Earth: Has been to all of the known major regions plus Orre within his twelve years of being a trainer, and is kind of a drifter anyway, normally rarely staying in one place for very long.
- Weak, but Skilled: Tagg is about average in terms of sheer Auric potential, but makes up for that with an in-depth knowledge of how his powers work as well as being a fairly quick study.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Gets this after slaughtering a bunch of Peons and making a video about it by the rest of the J-Team to varying degrees.
PMD-B only tropes:
- Dying Alone: Tagg ends up entombing himself in his 90s with the Adamant Orb following a Raider attack, having outlived most of his mons, who ended up dying to either old age or combat.
Image. (Heavily out of date)◊
For the team in general
- Badass Crew: There are very few things that Tagg's mons can't defeat working together.
- Barrier Warrior: Most know Protect.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Since Tagg's Pokémon are the Pokémon of a field researcher, it makes them far more willing to respond with lethal force if themselves or their trainer are threatened, due to the nature of their job. Outside of battle they're all generally nice though.
- Breaking the Fellowship: In the PMD-B timeline a bunch of Tagg's mons stayed with the Brotherhood of Steel, Helios went to take the Relic Castle throne with Audilith as an advisor, and his Dragon types (Draca, Garchomp, and Hydreigon) left the Brotherhood following his death.
- Combat Pragmatist: Just like their trainer, in life-or-death battles, any semblance of fairness is kicked to the curb.
- Confusion Fu: Tagg's mons tend to know a lot of moves, including ones that you wouldn't expect them to know.
- Snark Ball: Sarcasm is a very common character trait. Even Nudi and Helios have had their moments.
- Undying Loyalty: From the deepest depths of the wilderness to active warzones, Tagg's Pokémon have followed him everywhere.
Nudi (East Sea Gastrodon, Male)
Met: Route 213, Sinnoh (East Sea Shellos)
Ability: Storm Drain
An East Sea Gastrodon that Tagg caught in Sinnoh outside of Pastoria as a Shellos. Nudi can be rather naive and a bit of a pain, as well as a sore loser, but Tagg loves him anyway. His specialty is mainly in special attacks and tanking his opponents with his fairly high defense.
Met: Route 202, Sinnoh (Shinx)
The third member of Tagg's main Sinnoh team, Luxray was a Shinx when Tagg caught him on Route 202 after he interrupted a battle between Gaia and Roc. While very serious in nature, the one Pokémon he happens to be closest to is Nudi the Gastrodon. In battle he tends to be a jack of all trades.
Roc (Staraptor, Male)
Met: Route 202, Sinnoh (Starly)
Gaia (Torterra, Female)
Met: Sandgem Town, Sinnoh (Turtwig) [Gift from Professor Rowan]
Tagg's first Sinnoh Pokémon, Gaia was given to Tagg by Professor Rowan. Highly curious in nature, she also happens to act like everyone's mother half of the time. In battle, she relies on her high physical defense and powerful physical attacks.
Cobalt (Metagross, Genderless, though Tagg often refers to it using masculine pronouns)
Met: Mossdeep City, Hoenn (Beldum) [Gift from Steven Stone]
Ability: Clear Body
Cobalt was given to Tagg in Mossdeep as a gift by Steven Stone. While not the strongest Pokémon at first
, he eventually evolved to be one of the most powerful Pokémon in Tagg's possession. Cobalt also happened to be used by Tagg as a translator whenever the group needed to speak to legendaries before they gained their ability to speak to Pokémon. In battle he relies on physical moves such as Meteor Mash, as well as Psychic.
Draca (Salamence, Female)
Met: Meteor Falls, Hoenn (Bagon)
Musashi (Samurott, Male)
Met: Nuvema Town, Unova (Oshawott) [Recieved from Professor Juniper]
The first Pokémon Tagg obtained in Unova, Musashi was an Oshawott when Tagg received him from Professor Juniper. While not the most sociable of Pokémon, often preferring to practice his swordplay alone, Musashi more or less serves as the second in command of Tagg's Unovan team. In battle he tends to use a mixture of physical and special attacks.
Audilith (Gigalith, Female)
Met: Wellspring Cave, Unova (Roggenrola)
Aliroz (Krookodile, Male)
Met: Route 4, Unova (Sandile)
Met: Route 3, Unova (Pidove)
Ability: Super Luck
Sirius (Stoutland, Male)
Met: Route 1, Unova (Lillipup)
Ability: Sand Rush
Met: Outer Pinwheel Forest, Unova
Met: Cold Storage, Unova (Vanillite)
Ability: Ice Body
Tagg met Vanilluxe in Driftveil's Cold Storage as a Vanillite, where he made off with his hat before Tagg caught up with him. After playing around with everyone, he decided to join Tagg to see the world. Quirky and fairly artistic, Vanilluxe can be rather strange, but is smarter than many give him credit for. He also fathered two children with Audilith the Gigalith, Qui-Gon and Benny, surprisingly. While he doesn't have the greatest physical defense, he has great special defense and has the third highest special attack amongst Tagg's Unovan Pokémon, only beaten out by Helios and Hydreigon.
Trollfisk (Stunfisk, Female)
Met: Moor of Iccirus, Unova
Met: Unova Victory Road (Deino)
Hydreigon and Tagg first met at Unova's Victory Road right before the climax of the Unova arc, where she attempted to take a bite out of his leg as a Deino. Taking pity on her upon discovering her emaciation, Tagg took her as his own, and got her undying loyalty as a result. Hydreigon is a good mon at heart, even though she has a nasty temper and lacks tact when it comes to eating. She also had problems comprehending friendship since her world consisted only of "food" and "predators", leading a lot of the other Pokémon to be afraid of her for a while.
- Action Mom: Has recently laid a clutch of Deino eggs following a one night stand with Alduin's brother.
- Androcles Lion: Is extremely loyal to Tagg for saving her life as a Deino.
- Berserk Button: Does not appreciate being called a freak.
- Big Eater: Hydreigon is infamous for her appetite, and her way of greeting others tends to be to ask whether or not they have anything to eat.
- Dark Is Edgy: But not evil, or stupid either, despite her species reputation as mindless killers.
- Extreme Omnivore: Besides being a non picky eater, in the past she has even tried to eat some of Tagg's friends, and tried to take a bite out of his leg when they first met. Justified, as both a general species trait and the fact that she happened to be emaciated at the time.
- Hidden Depths: While at first glance Hydreigon appears to be simply a Canon!Dex standard member of her species, she's actually a loving mother, loyal to her friends, and perfectly friendly to those not on her eating list.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Tends to get her in trouble since she loses all semblance of rational thought when angry.
- Lightning Bruiser: Hits hard and fast.
- Multiple Head Case: Once she evolved into Zweilous.
- Our Dragons Are Different: A three headed Dark type hydra.
- Playing with Fire: Knows Flamethrower and Fire Blast.
- Power Floats: Due to Levitate.
- The Power of Hate: Her pure rage after evolving allowed her to withstand super-effective attacks from almost all of the Trainer's Pokémon.
- Pronoun Trouble: Had to get reused to referring to herself as "I" instead of "we" after evolving from Zweilous.
- The Quiet One: Doesn't talk much.
- Split Personality Merge: After evolving into Hydreigon her current personality is a combination of those of her two heads as a Zweilous.
- Super Senses: All of her senses are far more enhanced than most humans and Pokémon, best of all being her senses of smell and hearing.
- Unstoppable Rage: Evolves while in this state. The results aren't pretty, as she ends up going on a rampage, mauling the Pincher who abused her before turning on the trainers once Mira and Artemis intervene.
Helios (Volcarona, Male)
Met: Most likely hatched in Nimbasa (Larvesta)
Ablility: Flame Body
Helios was hatched by Tagg as the offspring of Celestia and Tagg's Ditto. Helios evolved fairly quickly, which made him powerful, but left him as a physical adult with a child's mind. While seemingly naive and focused mainly on the consumption of honey, he can have a pretty keen insight on what needs to be done. In battle he relies mainly on speed and special attacks, and is one of the most powerful Pokémon in Tagg's possession. Currently he happens to be in a relationship of sorts with Algira, Silent's Masquerain.

Met: Ruins of Alph, Johto (Natu)
Ability: Magic Bounce
- Batman Gambit: A favorite tactic of his is simply to let those he watches do what they do naturally.
- Badass: Xatu is extremely powerful in combat, with Tagg not using him only because the fights would get boring. He also spends a lot of time battling threats that his trainer hasn't heard of.
- The Chessmaster: Xatu has facilitated the destruction of empires among other paradigm shifts simply by placing or directing Tagg, his mons, or anyone else simply where they can create the most change.
- Cryptic Conversation: Pretty much every conversation he has is filled with riddles and hidden meanings, to everyone's frustration.
- Flight: Xatu can fly, but he's not very good at it.
- Good Is Not Nice: Xatu is on the side of good, but he's not really interested in how those he watches over feel about his actions.

- Mind Rape: Is fully capable of doing this to those that try to harm those he watches over.
- No Sell: Knows Miracle Eye for Dark types.
- Psychic Powers: Like all Xatu.
- Seers: Well he is a Xatu.
- Soul Power: Knows Night Shade and Shadow Ball.
- Starfish Bird: Tagg considers him to be utterly incomprehensible.
- Teleport Spam: Is often used to travel from one region to another quickly if flying is too impractical.
- The Quiet One: Barely talks when visions aren't involved.
- Troll: Is a little bit of one.

A reject from a trainer's breeding program who decided to strike out on her own and met up with Ana and Bohr, the trio sticking together through Hoenn before getting caught by Tagg.
- Bratty Half-Pint: As a Larvitar.
- Bullying a Dragon: Decided to snark at her younger brother Gilgamesh, who was fully evolved while was not, and Sonny. The first ended without incident thanks to Bohr, the second required Artemia and Tagg's other mons to bail her out.
- Casting a Shadow: Upon fully evolving.
- Deadpan Snarker: As a Pupitar and Tyranitar.
- Inferiority Superiority Complex: According to Word of God at least part of Pica's behavior is due to feeling inferior due to not being good enough to be used by her original trainer.
- Meaningful Name: Named after the disorder.
- The Rival: To Artemia
- Rock Steady: Part Rock type.
- Smug Super: While Pica is indeed a fairly powerful mon despite not quite making the cut of her original breeder's program, her knowledge of this has made her very arrogant while simultaneously fueling her Inferiority Superiority Complex.
- Trash Talk: One of her favorite battle tactics is using Taunt and Torment.
- Tsundere: Pica's not exactly as mean as she seems, but she's certainly reluctant to show it.

"Typical sloppiness... all this data on creating powerful clone/glitch mons, while the more interesting effects were dismissed as failures..."
Tangent's starter, found in Azalea Town when he was seven. Why did she fall into such a place is a mystery. She helped Tangent outgrow his fear of animals. Not in the AU however.
- A Boy And His Tropius: She has been with Tangent pretty much ever since any of them remember.
- Desperation Attack: Frenzy Plant in the PEFE backstory OP. Justified in that she is Tangent's starter, and it still takes a whole lot of her.
- No Sell: As part of her "rivalry" with Maekrite, she grows Pecha Berries of her own.
- Parental Abandonment: She only remembers two faces, and that's if that was them and not just any random Tropius of the herd. All together now, awwwwww.
- Worthy Opponent: Maekrite sees her as this, mostly because both of them being their Trainers's most representative Pokémon.

- Beware the Nice Ones: Was the one to paralyze Lanius, and can match Tagg in ruthlessness if the situation calls for it.
- The Bus Came Back: Was here at the beginning, but left and only came back at the beginning of the Fiore arc. He also tends to spend a lot of time away from the rest of the J-Team in general.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Tagg, being one of the very few people he trusts completely.
- Nice Hat: Wears a fedora.
- The Nondescript: Tracer is described as having an incredibly generic face, almost to the point that it loops around and becomes unique.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: The other PEFE Founders are the only humans that know Tracer's actual name, and they're not telling.
- Author Appeal: The entire team consists of Pokémon for articles that were authored for a certain other Pokémon-related thread.
- Running Gag: Team members waking each other up via psychic invasion.
Lardna the Emboar
Vlad the Gliscor
Audrey the Lucario
Milo the Floatzel
Teala the Druddigon
Shaun the Ampharos
Nadia the Salamence
- Companion Cube: Her Salamence plushie, Toothless.
- Berserk Button: Watching Lake get harmed in her presence, which leads to her getting badly mauled in the final battle against Lanius during the AU arc.
- Flight - Unsurprisingly, it means quite a bit to her. And her insecurities from learning to fly and later being grounded from a broken wing form the basis of a good deal of her initial character dynamics.
- Playing with Fire: With Flamethrower and Fire Blast.
- Dishing Out Dirt: Picks up Earthquake during a TM binge in the AU.
- Interspecies Romance: Has feelings for Lake. Who is outside of her egg group.
- Temporal Paradox: It is discovered in Hoenn that Nadia owes her existence to an Ontological Paradox caused by Mew and Celebi's activities around four years ago.
- Tsundere: Has some Type A tendencies that pop up from time to time.
Kat the Marowak
Iggy the Blastoise
Sonny the Honchkrow
- Badass: Sonny is a massive jerk to say the least, but he's still one of Tracer's most powerful mons.
- Berserk Button: Threatening or otherwise harming Courtney or Riana in his presence.
- Dark Is Edgy: Is violent, rude, and regularly toys with others' insecurities. And is utterly unapologetic about it.
- Even Jerks Have Standards: As far as Sonny's concerned, he's the only one allowed to slap around his teammates.
- Glass Cannon: Sonny is a powerful attacker, but he can't take hits well, requiring Roost.
- Gradual Grinder: His main strategy tends to be to use Toxic on something and then use Roost to heal any damage they inflict until they faint or keel over.
- Gratuitous Russian: Draws some particular words for his Mafiya-like role.
- Jerk Ass: Is a major one, to the point that all of Tagg's mons and most of his teammates hate him.
- Jerk With A Heart Of Bronze: Despite being a massive asshole to most other beings, he does care about his teammates to some extent, loves his siblings and daughter, and does have some morals.
- Kick Them While They Are Down: Has no problem doing this to downed opponents.
- Poisonous Pokémon: Knows Toxic, and it's practically his signature move.
- Shock and Awe: Knows Thunder Wave.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: Is the most foul mouthed mon on Tracer's team.
Courtney the Unfezant
Gene the Sandslash
- Dishing Out Dirt
- Noodle Incident: Implied to have gone through one or two together with Dintel back at the PEFE labs, when they played pranks around as Sandshrew. Unlike Dintel, Gene evolved, both physically and mentally, since then.
Thog the Machamp
Zoltan the Aerodactyl
Francis the Ledian
Andre the Tyranitar
Cleo the Relicanth
- Wrong Genre Savvy: Is based around this.
- She does tend to be more spot on with the AU though.
Cecil the Zoroark
Eir the Duskull
Moogle the Archen
Bottles the Drilbur
Pepper the Meganium
- Berserk Button: If you do anything horrible to a child while Pepper is around, she will make you regret it. Rebecca nearly found this out the hard way.
- Team Mom: Although she competes for this position with Lardna, somewhat.
Umbramatic/ Joseph Nox
Umbramatic is a high priest of Giratina who's really 650 years old
and had sealed himself in a temple to protect it... until he decided that since he's immortal and not gonna die anytime soon he would explore the world. Ghost types are naturally attracted to him, partially due to his life-force being an unlimited food source for some, as well as the Obscura infused into his body, and so he once specialized in training them. However, he has since expanded to include other types. He has shortish black hair and blue eyes. Was once the Ghost Lord of Speactra.
First Appearance: 5020
- The Ageless: Is 651 years old. All thanks to an Alakagross experiment.
- The Atoner: For his past as the Ghost Lord.
- Bag of Spilling: Was once far more powerful, until Giratina stripped him of most of his powers following his misuse of them as the Ghost Lord of Spectra.
- Black Cloak: Wore one with a black robe as his "uniform" before switching to something more modern. It's not for stealth, though, and he usually kept the hood down.
- Dark and Troubled Past: His entire community died of plague except for him due to his immortality, and he spent a while as the Ghost Lord.
- Eternal Love: With Lina, and later Ammy.
- Evil Overlord: Used to be one 600 years ago when he ruled Spectra as the Ghost Lord.
- Have a Gay Old Time: Uses very archaic words sometimes, with ill results. Has grown out of it, fortunately.
- Immortality: Umbra is immune to aging and disease, but is capable of being killed like any other human.
- Immortality Begins at Twenty: Looks like he's in his early twenties.
- Pimp Duds: Wears them in this dream sequence, complete with actual Liepard skin.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: His formality of speech (due to his being unfamiliar with modern culture) can lead to this. Has fortunately grown out of it.
- Sinister Minister: As the Ghost Lord.
- Soul Power: Has limited Ghost Obscura powers.

A 21 year old explorer from Johto, Wolf was introduced into the world of Pokémon at quite a young age, when his parents allowed him to keep a Vulpix he had bonded with while lost in the woods around Ecruteak City. At the age of 10, Wolf set out on his Pokémon journey with Vulpix in tow. After challenging and defeating the League, Wolf sought greater and greater challenges, eventually leading to him climbing to the peak of Mt. Silver. Wolf would continue to visit the famous mountain's summit until four years later, when a young trainer
arrived after completing his own journey. Soon after this incident, Wolf was contracted by Steven Stone, and was trained in many areas, including combat, intelligence, and espionage. Stone, under the corrupting influence of 'M, brainwashed Wolf into becoming a member of his private army.
Recently, Wolf began receiving visions from Reshiram, which broke the hold Stone had over him
. He joined up with the group in Unova, and helped take down his former master.
Since renouncing his former life, Wolf has fallen in love, been genderbent
(twice), caught several new Pokémon, bought a book
, invented a device that allows trainers to communicate with their Pokémon inside their Pokeballs, been Body Swapped
, and befriended a Latias. Since Wolf is no longer a trainer, preferring a life of adventure to one of challenging Gyms, and is not registered with any Pokémon League, he is not bound by the six Pokémon rule, although he still keeps some Pokémon in a PC Box.

A trainer from Cianwood City who joined the J-Team in Olivine during Kanjoh-2. He's constantly searching for Fajro, his Quilava. The two were separated two years prior to Zeal's first appearance.
During Unova-2, it was revealed that Zeal is not the original Zachary Motte, and that the original Zach gave Zeal control so he could forget about Chase Espen, his cousin.
After a whole lot of Mind Screw
and Split Personality
shenanigans, most of Zeal's background still doesn't make a lot of sense.
These tropes apply to Zeal or all of his aspects:
