to:

* InSeriesNickname: Eleanor fondly dubs her "Rosa." Noel, meanwhile, gives her the more derisive moniker "Princess."
* PrettyPrincessPowerhouse: Her distinctive blonde RapunzelHair gives her a classical princess image, and you do '''not''' want to cross her and end up in a Pokémon battle with her. She's skilled enough to defeat even the likes of [[OlympusMons Regirock and Registeel]].
* RapunzelHair: She has a huge head of fluffy, cloud-like blonde hair that goes down at least past her waist.
* TomboyPrincess: Is a Rapidash-riding enthusiast who spends so much time outdoors that she has a dark tan. She has also undergone intensive training in Pokémon battling to gain the strength to lead.

* DemotedToExtra: In the original version, he was known as the "Azure Angel" and played an active role in the events of the story. This time, his name and much of his story is stripped away, with no sign that he will appear in anything other than flashbacks. He is still the same character, however; Shaymin's flashback to him bidding it farewell contains a ContinuityNod that references his background as an immortal warrior searching for a missing person.

Added DiffLines:

* BunnyEarsLawyer: She's a goofball who lapses into bouts of childish glee at seeing new technology, shows little restraint in referring to a '''princess''' by a casual nickname, teases a creature that said princess's kingdom worships like it's just another acquaintance, and is seemingly ''more interested'' when she finds out the "statues" in the palace museum are bodies mummified in gold. None of this takes away from her immense talent as an engineer.
