* SuperpoweredEvilSide

!!Ryan Hikari/"Black"

----
* BoxedCrook: How Ethan got him out of being put into jail.
* HeelFaceTurn
* HeelRealization
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Subtle, but this occurred after he realized the full extent of Gerald's actions.
* LongLostSibling: To Zach.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Against Team Energon following his escape from prison.
* UnstoppableRage: Ryan's deep wells of anger are what drew Wrath to him.

!!Summer Shirayuki/Jessica Hakuda/Jenny Hakuda

----
* ActionGirl
* DamselInDistress: Ryan sending a video of him attacking her is partially what sent the Unova Group to Unova to begin with. Has wound up as a DistressedDamsel several times since then, but seems to be growing out of it.
* Invoked/IdiosyncraticShipNaming: Showmanshipping, referring to [[OfficialCouple her and Evan.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia:
* LongLostSibling: To Ray.
* OfficialCouple: With Evan.
* SiblingTeam: With Ray during the final fight against the Ancients.
* TookALevelInBadass: Following the events in Unova, Jenny trained. A lot.

!!Ellen Burks
A young girl from Unova. Ellen became an unofficial participant in the Rocket-Liberty War when she joined up with Ryan Sanders and the Shiny Beasts Group.
----
* BreakTheCutie: The damage to Unova, as well as her encounters with Hayes and McKinley, and her participation in the battle against the Darkrai have been shown to be gradually affecting her. Not helped at all by the things she has seen during her travels through Hoenn.
* CheerfulChild
* FriendToAllLivingThings
* HeroicBSOD: Following Hannah's attack on Sootopolis. Suffice to say that Ellen did not take the destruction all that well.
* TheLinus
* LittleMissBadass: Took on Seven--the fourth most powerful Ancient--and won. Downplayed, however, as she had help from Ryan.

!!Klim "Kinali" Prizak
An unaffiliated trainer. Kinali became involved in the war when the Creation Trio's power began to weaken, threatening the existence of the world. Kinali is the envoy of Giratina.
----
* TheChosenOne: To Giratina, as the Hero of Void.
* DemotedToExtra: After his original player left.
* OutOfFocus
* PutOnABus: Taken hostage by the Darkrai in order to force Seth to gather the Elemental Plates.
** TheBusCameBack: Escaped in time to meet up with the Unova Group in order to go and fight the Ancients

!!Jackson Sang
A freelance assassin legendary for his combat skills.
----
* TheAce
** BrokenAce
* {{Badass}}
** BadassLongcoat
* BreakTheHaughty: A fairly mild example, but he hasn't been quite the same since thwarting Elton's mind control plot.
* CurbStompBattle: Delivered a brief one to Quincy Adams during his introductory arc.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindows: Maroon hair and eyes.
* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Expy}}: Of [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Claire Stanfield]].
* KnifeNut: His preferred assassination method.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Done by [=McKinley=]'s Xatu after he [[ForTheEvulz deliberately]] told Sang the details of Ford's current plan, leaving Sang to try and find a way to undo the damage.
* LastNameBasis: Only ever referred to as Sang, even by the narration. The one aversion has been with a flashback to his childhood, in which his friend Emre referred to him as Jack.
* MeaningfulName: "Sang" comes directly from "sanguinary," a descriptor meaning something "involving or causing much bloodshed."
* MercyKill: Delivered one to Tate and Ash.
* MyGreatestFailure: Failed to stop Ash Ketchum from being brainwashed by Elton, and thus failed the contract he was on. Apparently the first time he has ever lost in his life. On the plus side, he did manage to save Misty, Darren, and a bunch of other prisoners.
** Has another in the form of his childhood friend Emre, who almost died to a pack of Mightyena and then died several years later when the two were mugged.
* TookALevelInBadass: As shown by a flashback, nine-year-old Sang was not the strongest kid on the block.

!!Kane
A man who appeared underneath Opelucid some time after the Ancients' defeat and was subsequently freed by Feral.
----
* FrameUp: His most recent act, attempting to make it seem as if several members of Team Liberty are attacking Opelucid's residents. It did not go as expected.
* MindControl: Effectively brainwashed the entire populace of Opelucid, turning them into his slaves.
* ObviouslyEvil: Subverted. At a glance, he appears fairly normal. His choice of companions, however? Not so much.
* PutOnABus: After Opelucid.

!!Carl Sandrock
The head of Soil Colossus, Inc. Formerly a Team Rocket scientist, Sandrock worked on a mind control machine for much of his time in the organization, until it was forcibly shut down by Shadow Admin Sleight, losing his original Pokémon team in the process. In retaliation, he devised a plan to get back at them.
----
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Did everything in his power to be as big of a thorn in Sleight's side as possible. [[GoneHorriblyRight He succeeded, with disastrous consequences for himself.]]
* BoomHeadshot: Courtesy of Sleight.
* CavalryBetrayal
* ExtraOreDinary: Specialized in Ground-Types.
* KilledOffForReal
* MeaningfulName: A Ground-Type trainer named '''Sandrock'''. How appropriate.
* OhCrap: His reaction upon discovering that Soil Colossus' "blood-bending" machine did not work on Sleight.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Received a brutal one from Sleight just before his death.
* RevengeByProxy
* ShoutOut: His organization's name and the name of their headquarters were a reference to one of Website/{{Smogon}}'s CAP projects, Collossoil.
* SmugSnake
* UnderestimatingBadassery: ''Severely'' underestimated how far Sleight would go to retaliate against him.

!!Team Zephyr
A group of eight trainers who took over the Celadon Department Store. At the moment, not much is known about them, but they seem to have some sort of interest in Rayquaza.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Skye.
* BlowYouAway: The main theme of their team is the Flying-Type, as evidenced by their name and their interest in Rayquaza. Certain members did not get the memo.
* BoxedCrook: Ethan convinced the police to give them this opportunity. Only Skye and Skylark took up the offer.
* CatchPhrase: Windy's "As if."
* {{Expy}}: 3/8 of the team have been based around this.
** Skyler heavily invokes [[{{Franchise/ScoobyDoo}} Shaggy Rogers]], and his Pokémon team consists of [[JustForPun punny]] references to the rest of the Mystery Inc. gang.
** Skylark is obsessed with music, has a brother named Chip, and is part of a band with said brother called the [[{{WesternAnimation/TheFairlyoddparents}} Chipped Skylarks]].
** Skye is not a reference to anyone in particular; however, in her introduction she is revealed to be a comic book nerd who idolizes such heroes as [[{{Franchise/Batman}} Crobatman]], [[{{Franchise/GreenLantern}} Green Lanturn]], [[{{Franchise/SpiderMan}} Spinarak-Man]], [[{{ComicBook/FantasticFour}} The Human Torchic]], and [[{{ComicBook/Hawkeye}} Hawlucha-Eye]]. Coincidentally, she also shares a name with [[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD another superhero-related group member named Skye.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Windy attempted to use a mysterious green orb to summon and control Rayquaza, and when it did not work she began to mishandle it. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a Transfer Orb, which ended up merging her with her Pidgeot.
* MeaningfulName: All of Team Zephyr's members' names evoke the sky or the wind in some form or another. Yet, even so...
* OddNameOut: Team Zephyr consists of Skylon, Skyle, Skylark, Skyler, Skya, Skylah, Skye, and their leader... Windy.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Skyle.
* VillainousBreakdown: Occurred to Windy when she realized that her orb wasn't working.

!!Esen Windred
A lone Trainer who appeared in Cianwood City in order to help against the brainwashed Rocket Elites, Esen soon revealed herself to be none other than the daughter of the late Shadow Admin Ace.
----
* TheAce: When it comes to combat.
* ActionGirl
* AmnesiacHero: She doesn't remember anything about her life before the age of ten or so.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBookworm: Often, her inner monologues during battle reference the combat training she received, which thus far has covered basic topics like type advantages to more nuanced studies like the battle styles of specific Gym Leaders and Pokémon.
* BlowYouAway: All of her Pokémon so far have been Flying-Type, much like her mother.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Gets two shortly after her introduction.
** First, she makes short work of the same Gym Leader-strength Pokémon that had handily defeated TL Agents Jenny and Hex moments before her arrival, through virtually perfect use of type advantages, immunities and superior strength.
** After telling off Silvermind for her role in Ace's death, she nonetheless saves the Liberty Admin from what could have been a lethal Charge Beam attack, suffering an injury to herself in the process.
* MeaningfulName: In addition to the "wind" in "Windred," "Esen" is a Turkish name meaning "the wind," further referencing her type specialty.
* NotGoodWithPeople: A mixture of the two types.
* PeekABangs
* SheCleansUpNicely: During the Liberty Ball.
* SugarAndIcePersonality
* TheQuietOne

!!Eileen Alaric
Sleight's wife, a woman noted by Sang for her powerful presence and fierce determination.
----
* AscendedExtra: First appeared as an off-hand mention in the time skip post (as well as having been briefly mentioned by [=McKlellen=] during Team Rocket's assault on Soil Colossus); later becomes much more important when her son is kidnapped.
* {{Badass}}: She lasted much longer and did more damage against the Darkrai that Ford sent to attack her than Sang's entire team did, which is saying something.
* {{Determinator}}: Part of Sang's observations about her during a brief encounter.
* MamaBear: The overall impression she gives off to Sang in a very brief encounter.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: While not exactly "royal," she ''is'' the wife of the most powerful man in Kanto, and she insists on personally joining the search for her missing son.

!!Levi Alaric
Sleight's son, who disappeared under unknown circumstances shortly after the six month time skip. Later revealed to have been abducted and recruited by the Hojohsin League as the Eighth Child.
----
* AscendedExtra: First appeared as an off-hand mention in the time skip post (as well as having been briefly mentioned by [=McKlellen=] during Team Rocket's assault on Soil Colossus), and was later kidnapped under mysterious circumstances.
* ChildSoldier: Virtually all of Ford's apprentices are this to some extent, given their early recruitment, but Calvin in particular is implied to be somewhere around the age of nine or ten.
* CodeName: Calvin Truman, the Eighth Child.
* CoveredWithScars: According to his mother, courtesy of an accident that occurred shortly before the beginning of the story.
* MindRape: Implied to be enduring this in his introductory post.
* MommasBoy: Described as much closer to his mother than his father.
* ShoutOut: His CodeName was specifically chosen as a reference to ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Described as having black hair and blue eyes, just like his mother and father, though notably not as icy-intense of a blue as his father.
* TroubledChild
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Wore one when he appeared in Havoc. Much like his general presence there and cooperation with Ford, he likely did not don it willingly. It was later discarded on James Pierce's orders.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Legendary Pokémon]]
!!In General
* PsychicPowers: All Legendary Pokémon are assumed to have limited telepathic abilities, allowing them to communicate with humans.
* [[TalkingAnimal Talking Pokémon]]: See above.

!!Mewtwo
The [[Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie original]] Mewtwo.
----
* BerserkButton: Threatening, harming, and especially [[spoiler: killing]] his fellow clones.
* CloningBlues: Suffered from this for some time after his creation; by the time the events of RotR roll around, he has other problems to deal with.
* DespairEventHorizon: Suffered a severe case after [[spoiler: the other cloned Pokémon were killed.]]

!!Mewtwo/"Mewthree"
Another Mewtwo created by a Unovan bounty hunting company at the request of Ford.
----
* CloningBlues: Surprisingly averted; Mewthree is aware of why and how he was created and has not shown any negative feelings toward that reason.
* [[invoked]]FanNickname: To differentiate him from Mewtwo.
* FromASingleCell: His Recover abilities are shown to be ''much'' more potent than those of the original Mewtwo.
* SkilledButNaive: As a newly born Pokémon, Mewthree still has yet to master his powers.

!!Ho-Oh
A legendary bird Pokémon.
----
* {{Badass}}
* BerserkButton: Will absolutely destroy any sources of evil that it locates, as the Searchers found out the hard way.
* [[TheNthDoctor The Nth Ho-Oh]]: Is capable of regenerating when killed, albeit with a new personality. As of its battle against Feral, Ho-Oh is on its third life.
* ShoutOut: Unsurprisingly, the rules regarding Ho-Oh's regeneration were directly inspired by Series/DoctorWho.

!!Raikou/Shekou/Sheik
A female Raikou from Orre who later joined Team Liberty.
----
* AscendedExtra: Started out as a random Raikou in Orre; by now she has turned into virtually a full-fledged Team Liberty agent.
* [[invoked]]FanNickname: Shekou was eventually dubbed Sheik to more easily differentiate her from other Raikou. Also serves as a ShoutOut to VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime.
* ShoutOut: See Fan Nickname.

!!The Shiny Beasts
A shiny Entei, Raikou and Suicune who originate from a different dimension. After sensing the powerful disturbances in the dimensional fabric, they appeared in the main dimension to rectify the problem.
----
* BornAgainImmortality: Possess this power, as demonstrated by Suicune.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Dimension Jumping, allowing the user to fast travel at the expense of a large amount of energy.
* HeroicSacrifice: Suicune.

!!The Creation Trio
A group of Legendary Dragons consisting of Palkia, Dialga and Giratina.
----
* RealityWarper: All three of them, in their own way.

!!Deoxys (Xalpha/Ariadne, Odin, Vili, and Vé)
Ariadne is a Deoxys recruited by Team Rocket member Robert Hawkins. She assisted in defending Paradise from Team Liberty's attacks. It was later revealed that she was formerly the queen of the Deoxys race on their home planet; after seeing their actions on Earth, she relinquished her position in disgust.

Odin, Vili, and Vé are a trio of lower-power Deoxys revived by Ariadne and a group of Latios and Latias. Each is confined to a single, specialized form, coinciding with the colors of the gems in their chests, and all three serve as Ariadne's honor guard.
----
* ColorCodedCharacters:
*** Purple -- Ariadne -- All
*** Red -- Odin -- Attack
*** Blue -- Vili -- Defense
*** Green -- Vé -- Speed
* MeaningfulName: Xalpha = ex-Alpha, following the relinquishment of her position.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
* SamusIsAGirl: Most assumed Ariadne was a male before her true gender was revealed.
* ShoutOut: Ariadne's true name was directly inspired by Film/{{Inception}}.

!!Celebi
----
* NevertheSelvesShallMeet: Implied with how Celebi told James not to come back to his office until after she threw him back in time. But knowing Celebi, it's more likely invoked for her convenience more than anything else.


[[/folder]]

[[folder: Official Series [=NPCs=]]]
!!Silver
One of the Dex Holders and the son of the now-deceased Team Rocket leader Giovanni. Silver originally operated as a Team Liberty agent; within the past year, however, he betrayed the organization for Team Rocket.
----
* FaceHeelTurn: Much to the dismay of his friends.
** Subverted, as he acts as a mole within Team Rocket.
* TheInformant
* TheMole

!!The Rocket Triad
A group of Gym Leaders working with Team Rocket, consisting of Lt. Surge, Koga, and Sabrina. Later turned out to be brainwashed by Elton, and upon his defeat were sent into a psychic rampage.
----
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Revealed to be the case due to the actions of Rocket Executive Elton.
* CavalryBetrayal: During the first Paradise attack.
* {{Ninja}}: Koga.
* PoisonousPerson: Koga's specialty.
* PsychicPowers: Sabrina's specialty.
* ShockAndAwe: Surge's specialty.

!!Pryce
The former Gym Leader of Mahogany Town. Pryce only appeared for a limited time, in a side-dimension where he had been placed under the control of a mysterious, pool-like entity.
----
* DyingAsYourself
* HeelRealization: Realizing that he has essentially killed all of his Pokémon manages to break him free from his implied mind control.
* KilledOffForReal
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: His reaction to his HeelRealization.

!!Maxie
Team Magma's primary leader. After realizing the folly of his ways, he reformed and has transformed Team Magma in an organization of good.

* DemotedToExtra: After his player left.
* HeelFaceTurn

* SpannerInTheWorks: For Soil Colossus, by stealing the Alpha Manaphy that Sandrock was after.

!!Archie
Team Aqua's primary leader. Archie was imprisoned along with Maxie following the conclusion of the Hoenn saga; unlike Maxie, he did not reform, and has been imprisoned in Lilycove City for some time now. He was recently released following the return of Team Aqua, though following intervention by Team Rocket, he was killed via telekinetic neck snap by Sabrina.
----
* DealWithTheDevil: Attempted this with Feral.
* KilledOffForReal
* NeckSnap
* ShutUpHannibal: Delivered by Sabrina.

!!The Six Sages
The six Sages of Team Plasma.
----
* AMillionIsAStatistic: Averted. They explicitly condemn Evan's decision regarding Hayes because he operated under this mindset.
** This actually appears to be a BerserkButton for Rood, who absolutely ''flips out'' when Kinali reassures him that the damaged land of Unova will be fine, without mentioning the people whose lives were lost in the battle.
* ChessMotifs: The structure for their organization's ranking system.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Applies to certain Sages more than others, but Gorm is the best example.
* WhatTheHellHero: Deliver one to Evan following Hayes' defeat, as he forfeited an opportunity to bring her in.
** They later deliver another one to the main player group after Palkia and Black-Kyurem destroy a large chunk of Unova.

!!Jupiter
One of Team Galactic's admins, and the last surviving member of the group following their encounter with Envy.
----
* AscendedExtra: Initially appeared in a background role during Team Galactic's recruitment into the Hojohsin League; later emerged again--much more prominently--with Envy's introduction.
* GuestStarPartyMember
* OnlySaneMan: Seemed to feel this way while dealing with Vert.
* SoleSurvivor: Of Envy's attack on Team Galactic.
* SpannerInTheWorks: If it hadn't been for her vocal objections, Vert might have succeeded in capturing and experimenting on Evan and Landorus.
* ThousandYardStare: By the time she gets around to informing Sleight about Envy, she has adopted this expression, having had to recount the total destruction of her friends and co-workers so many times.

** After telling off Silvermind for her role in Ace's death, she nonetheless saves the Liberty Admin from what could have been a lethal Charge Beam attack, suffering an injury to herself in the process.
* MeaningfulName: In addition to the "wind" in "Windred," "Esen" is a Turkish name meaning "the wind," further referencing her type specialty.

----
* AscendedExtra: First appeared as an off-hand mention in the time skip post (as well as having been briefly mentioned by [=McKlellen=] during Team Rocket's assault on Soil Colossus); later becomes much more important when her son is kidnapped.
* {{Badass}}: She lasted much longer and did more damage against the Darkrai that Ford sent to attack her than Sang's entire team did, which is saying something.
* {{Determinator}}: Part of Sang's observations about her during a brief encounter.
* MamaBear: The overall impression she gives off to Sang in a very brief encounter.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: While not exactly "royal," she ''is'' the wife of the most powerful man in Kanto, and she insists on personally joining the search for her missing son.

!!Levi Alaric
Sleight's son, who disappeared under unknown circumstances shortly after the six month time skip. Later revealed to have been abducted and recruited by the Hojohsin League as the Eighth Child.
----

* CoveredWithScars: According to his mother, courtesy of an accident that occurred shortly before the beginning of the story.
* MindRape: Implied to be enduring this in his introductory post.

* TroubledChild
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Wore one when he appeared in Havoc. Much like his general presence there and cooperation with Ford, he likely did not don it willingly. It was later discarded on James Pierce's orders.

The [[Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie original]] Mewtwo.
----

* DespairEventHorizon: Suffered a severe case after [[spoiler: the other cloned Pokémon were killed.]]

!!Mewtwo/"Mewthree"
Another Mewtwo created by a Unovan bounty hunting company at the request of Ford.
----
* CloningBlues: Surprisingly averted; Mewthree is aware of why and how he was created and has not shown any negative feelings toward that reason.
* [[invoked]]FanNickname: To differentiate him from Mewtwo.
* FromASingleCell: His Recover abilities are shown to be ''much'' more potent than those of the original Mewtwo.

* {{Badass}}
* BerserkButton: Will absolutely destroy any sources of evil that it locates, as the Searchers found out the hard way.
* [[TheNthDoctor The Nth Ho-Oh]]: Is capable of regenerating when killed, albeit with a new personality. As of its battle against Feral, Ho-Oh is on its third life.
* ShoutOut: Unsurprisingly, the rules regarding Ho-Oh's regeneration were directly inspired by Series/DoctorWho.

!!Raikou/Shekou/Sheik
A female Raikou from Orre who later joined Team Liberty.
----
* AscendedExtra: Started out as a random Raikou in Orre; by now she has turned into virtually a full-fledged Team Liberty agent.

Odin, Vili, and Vé are a trio of lower-power Deoxys revived by Ariadne and a group of Latios and Latias. Each is confined to a single, specialized form, coinciding with the colors of the gems in their chests, and all three serve as Ariadne's honor guard.
----
* ColorCodedCharacters:
*** Purple -- Ariadne -- All
*** Red -- Odin -- Attack
*** Blue -- Vili -- Defense
*** Green -- Vé -- Speed
* MeaningfulName: Xalpha = ex-Alpha, following the relinquishment of her position.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Applies to certain Sages more than others, but Gorm is the best example.

* [[FreezeFrameBonus Blink And You'll Miss It]]: Briefly implied to have taken a visit to the Alamo after Lust and Greed's battle there.

* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette
* HumanoidAbomination: Destroyed Lavaridge in his very first appearance, which has been all but stated to have killed ''everyone'' who had been trapped there by the Darkrai, and is shown to physically extract a sphere of darkness from his chest.

* BlowYouAway: Her elemental motif, appearing and disappearing in gusts of wind.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Prior to her corruption, Envy was dirt poor and lived on the streets of Oreburgh, where she was often looked upon with disdain. This ultimately left her vulnerable to corruption.
* DittoFighter: Her team is partially based around this concept.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette
* FamousLastWords: "Isn't it obvious, Van? Perfection arises only in the absence of sin... and so I sought someone with the strength to defeat their heart's envy. But your darkness... It's not like Mars'--closer to mine, in fact, and all too similar in origin--reading its secrets is hardly difficult. Indeed, one must wonder if it truly belongs to you at all...

** The "Rai" in "Raimundo" can be rearranged to spell "Ira", the Latin name for Wrath.

* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Lust's blue.
* SiblingTeam: With Lust.
* Invoked/TheOtherDarrin: On top of writing for her in her first appearance, Parugi took control of Greed after Detranix left to attend to personal issues.

!!Albero [=DeLargo=]/Gluttony
A young man corrupted in Mossdeep City. He represents the Sin of Gluttony.
----
* TheAssimilator: Suggested this in regards to the rapidly-weakening Nine.
* BirthDeathJuxtaposition: A very downplayed example, but Gluttony's first appearance is in a graveyard, where his powers prompt flowers to spring to life in his wake.
* GreenThumb: His elemental motif.
* LeanAndMean
* MeaningfulName:
** "Albero" is Italian for "Tree."
** Subverted with "[=DeLargo=]," which was originally supposed to be "[=DeLarge=]," serving as a reference to Alex [=DeLarge=] of [[Literature/AClockworkOrange A Clockwork Orange]]--creating a triple reference due to the two characters' shared initials, as well as the fact that orange is both a fruit (Albero's elemental motif) and the color of Albero's Aura. However, it was changed to "[=DeLargo=]" by Alku before the character officially appeared, which--being the term for a slow tempo--fits with the idea of Albero taking longer than his fellows to become fully corrupted.
* NiceGuy: Tried to be this before his corruption fully took over.
* Invoked/TheOtherDarrin: Very much zig-zagged. Parugi wrote for Gluttony during his very first appearance and for the post in which Albero [=DeLargo=]'s last semblances of humanity were devoured, as well as some small posts beforehand leading up to that event. He was supposed to take over permanently after that point, until Alku decided to keep control of the character at the last minute.

!!Gelar Stolz/Pride
A young man corrupted in Mossdeep City. He represents the sin of Pride.
----
* AnIcePerson: His elemental motif.
* BlondGuysAreEvil
* DoNotTauntCthulhu: Aria responds to his questions regarding their methods by shattering his glass of wine. It is heavily implied as he leaves that he could have easily killed her for the transgression then and there in he had felt like it.
* FantasticRacism: His HannibalLecture regarding Aria's pride--as well as those of her allies--almost makes it seem as if he will challenge her... until he notes that she is nothing but a Pokémon meant to serve others and promptly exits.
* {{Foil}}: To Gluttony, his "partner" Sin. Gluttony started out with a full focus on combating his target in a physical manner, and only began to shift to a more mental arena when he finally lost the struggle against his corruption and fully became his Sin. Pride fell almost immediately to his corruption and has so far not thrown a single punch at his three targets, instead choosing to pick them apart verbally. Gluttony revealed his entire team almost as soon as he first appeared, whereas Pride has only shown one of his. Where Gluttony, in either of his states, appears to have full control over his emotions, Pride is prone to sudden shifts in mood. And then, of course, there's the fact that Gluttony appeared in a location naturally full of his element, while Pride warped his location of choice into a frozen wasteland in the middle of summer.
* HannibalLecture: Delivers one to Dack, Hannah, and Aspen. ''[[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech Especially]]'' [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech Hannah]].
* HumanoidAbomination: As demonstrated when Aria attempted to read his aura. Suffice to say that what she saw made no sense whatsoever.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Pride controls ice. In other words, he gives people the cold shoulder.
** In a similar vein--and this was [[AccidentalPun accidental]]--take a good, long look at the title of [[Literature/PrideAndPrejudice Pride and Prejudice]].
* IronicName: "Stolz", which bares more than a passing resemblance to Sloth's last name ("Holts"), considering how hung up Pride appears to be regarding "false Pride-bearers."
* ManOfWealthAndTaste
* MeaningfulName[=/=]SignificantAnagram:
** Triply so with his first name: "Gelar" is an anagram of "Regal", and by taking away the "r" to make "Gela", his name becomes the Italian word for "Freezes." Along with that, "G" is the seventh letter of the alphabet, mirroring Pride's position as the seventh and final Sin to appear.
** "Stolz," likewise, is the German word for "Pride."
* MoodSwinger: His confrontation with Dack, Hannah, and Aspen shows that he does not have the best handle on his emotions.
* {{Pride}}
* PurpleIsPowerful: His Aura color.
* SpoiledBrat: His brief musings about their corruption indicate this to some degree.
* SuddenlyShouting: During his roasting of Hannah, most specifically.
* TakenForGranite: Slowly froze solid after being overcome by his targets.
* ThereCanBeOnlyOne: Effectively his attitude toward others bearing Pride.
* WeatherDissonance: After his short confrontation with Aria, the summer weather in Celadon is quickly replaced with a heavy snowfall.
* WineIsClassy: First appears in the public eye with a wine glass full of... [[SubvertedTrope some sort of non-alcoholic grape concoction]]. Because he's physically underage. But the aesthetic is still there.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Is only 17, and thus the youngest of the Sins, but he certainly doesn't look it.

* SuperpoweredEvilSide

----

* HeelFaceTurn
* HeelRealization
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Subtle, but this occurred after he realized the full extent of Gerald's actions.
* LongLostSibling: To Zach.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Against Team Energon following his escape from prison.
* UnstoppableRage: Ryan's deep wells of anger are what drew Wrath to him.

!!Summer Shirayuki/Jessica Hakuda/Jenny Hakuda

----
* ActionGirl
* DamselInDistress: Ryan sending a video of him attacking her is partially what sent the Unova Group to Unova to begin with. Has wound up as a DistressedDamsel several times since then, but seems to be growing out of it.
* Invoked/IdiosyncraticShipNaming: Showmanshipping, referring to [[OfficialCouple her and Evan.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia:
* LongLostSibling: To Ray.
* OfficialCouple: With Evan.
* SiblingTeam: With Ray during the final fight against the Ancients.
* TookALevelInBadass: Following the events in Unova, Jenny trained. A lot.

!!Ellen Burks
A young girl from Unova. Ellen became an unofficial participant in the Rocket-Liberty War when she joined up with Ryan Sanders and the Shiny Beasts Group.
----
* BreakTheCutie: The damage to Unova, as well as her encounters with Hayes and McKinley, and her participation in the battle against the Darkrai have been shown to be gradually affecting her. Not helped at all by the things she has seen during her travels through Hoenn.
* CheerfulChild
* FriendToAllLivingThings
* HeroicBSOD: Following Hannah's attack on Sootopolis. Suffice to say that Ellen did not take the destruction all that well.
* TheLinus
* LittleMissBadass: Took on Seven--the fourth most powerful Ancient--and won. Downplayed, however, as she had help from Ryan.

!!Klim "Kinali" Prizak
An unaffiliated trainer. Kinali became involved in the war when the Creation Trio's power began to weaken, threatening the existence of the world. Kinali is the envoy of Giratina.
----
* TheChosenOne: To Giratina, as the Hero of Void.

* OutOfFocus
* PutOnABus: Taken hostage by the Darkrai in order to force Seth to gather the Elemental Plates.
** TheBusCameBack: Escaped in time to meet up with the Unova Group in order to go and fight the Ancients
** [[ZigZaggedTrope ... only to vanish again immediately after the fight with Wrath in Goldenrod.]]

!!Jackson Sang
A freelance assassin legendary for his combat skills.
----
* TheAce
** BrokenAce
* {{Badass}}
** BadassLongcoat
* BreakTheHaughty: A fairly mild example, but he hasn't been quite the same since thwarting Elton's mind control plot.
* CurbStompBattle: Delivered a brief one to Quincy Adams during his introductory arc.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindows: Maroon hair and eyes.
* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Expy}}: Of [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Claire Stanfield]].
* KnifeNut: His preferred assassination method.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Done by [=McKinley=]'s Xatu after he [[ForTheEvulz deliberately]] told Sang the details of Ford's current plan, leaving Sang to try and find a way to undo the damage.
* LastNameBasis: Only ever referred to as Sang, even by the narration. The one aversion has been with a flashback to his childhood, in which his friend Emre referred to him as Jack.
* MeaningfulName: "Sang" comes directly from "sanguinary," a descriptor meaning something "involving or causing much bloodshed."
* MercyKill: Delivered one to Tate and Ash.
* MyGreatestFailure: Failed to stop Ash Ketchum from being brainwashed by Elton, and thus failed the contract he was on. Apparently the first time he has ever lost in his life. On the plus side, he did manage to save Misty, Darren, and a bunch of other prisoners.
** Has another in the form of his childhood friend Emre, who almost died to a pack of Mightyena and then died several years later when the two were mugged.
* TookALevelInBadass: As shown by a flashback, nine-year-old Sang was not the strongest kid on the block.

!!Kane
A man who appeared underneath Opelucid some time after the Ancients' defeat and was subsequently freed by Feral.
----
* FrameUp: His most recent act, attempting to make it seem as if several members of Team Liberty are attacking Opelucid's residents. It did not go as expected.
* MindControl: Effectively brainwashed the entire populace of Opelucid, turning them into his slaves.
* ObviouslyEvil: Subverted. At a glance, he appears fairly normal. His choice of companions, however? Not so much.
* PutOnABus: After Opelucid.

!!Carl Sandrock
The head of Soil Colossus, Inc. Formerly a Team Rocket scientist, Sandrock worked on a mind control machine for much of his time in the organization, until it was forcibly shut down by Shadow Admin Sleight, losing his original Pokémon team in the process. In retaliation, he devised a plan to get back at them.
----
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Did everything in his power to be as big of a thorn in Sleight's side as possible. [[GoneHorriblyRight He succeeded, with disastrous consequences for himself.]]
* BoomHeadshot: Courtesy of Sleight.
* CavalryBetrayal
* ExtraOreDinary: Specialized in Ground-Types.
* KilledOffForReal
* MeaningfulName: A Ground-Type trainer named '''Sandrock'''. How appropriate.
* OhCrap: His reaction upon discovering that Soil Colossus' "blood-bending" machine did not work on Sleight.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Received a brutal one from Sleight just before his death.
* RevengeByProxy
* ShoutOut: His organization's name and the name of their headquarters were a reference to one of Website/{{Smogon}}'s CAP projects, Collossoil.
* SmugSnake
* UnderestimatingBadassery: ''Severely'' underestimated how far Sleight would go to retaliate against him.

!!Team Zephyr
A group of eight trainers who took over the Celadon Department Store. At the moment, not much is known about them, but they seem to have some sort of interest in Rayquaza.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Skye.
* BlowYouAway: The main theme of their team is the Flying-Type, as evidenced by their name and their interest in Rayquaza. Certain members did not get the memo.
* BoxedCrook: Ethan convinced the police to give them this opportunity. Only Skye and Skylark took up the offer.
* CatchPhrase: Windy's "As if."
* {{Expy}}: 3/8 of the team have been based around this.
** Skyler heavily invokes [[{{Franchise/ScoobyDoo}} Shaggy Rogers]], and his Pokémon team consists of [[JustForPun punny]] references to the rest of the Mystery Inc. gang.
** Skylark is obsessed with music, has a brother named Chip, and is part of a band with said brother called the [[{{WesternAnimation/TheFairlyoddparents}} Chipped Skylarks]].
** Skye is not a reference to anyone in particular; however, in her introduction she is revealed to be a comic book nerd who idolizes such heroes as [[{{Franchise/Batman}} Crobatman]], [[{{Franchise/GreenLantern}} Green Lanturn]], [[{{Franchise/SpiderMan}} Spinarak-Man]], [[{{ComicBook/FantasticFour}} The Human Torchic]], and [[{{ComicBook/Hawkeye}} Hawlucha-Eye]]. Coincidentally, she also shares a name with [[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD another superhero-related group member named Skye.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Windy attempted to use a mysterious green orb to summon and control Rayquaza, and when it did not work she began to mishandle it. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a Transfer Orb, which ended up merging her with her Pidgeot.
* MeaningfulName: All of Team Zephyr's members' names evoke the sky or the wind in some form or another. Yet, even so...
* OddNameOut: Team Zephyr consists of Skylon, Skyle, Skylark, Skyler, Skya, Skylah, Skye, and their leader... Windy.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Skyle.
* VillainousBreakdown: Occurred to Windy when she realized that her orb wasn't working.

!!Esen Windred
A lone Trainer who appeared in Cianwood City in order to help against the brainwashed Rocket Elites, Esen soon revealed herself to be none other than the daughter of the late Shadow Admin Ace.
----
* TheAce: When it comes to combat.
* ActionGirl
* AmnesiacHero: She doesn't remember anything about her life before the age of ten or so.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBookworm: Often, her inner monologues during battle reference the combat training she received, which thus far has covered basic topics like type advantages to more nuanced studies like the battle styles of specific Gym Leaders and Pokémon.
* BlowYouAway: All of her Pokémon so far have been Flying-Type, much like her mother.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Gets two shortly after her introduction.
** First, she makes short work of the same Gym Leader-strength Pokémon that had handily defeated TL Agents Jenny and Hex moments before her arrival, through virtually perfect use of type advantages, immunities and superior strength.
** After telling off Silvermind for her role in Ace's death, she nonetheless saves the Liberty Admin from what could have been a lethal Charge Beam attack, suffering an injury to herself in the process.
* MeaningfulName: In addition to the "wind" in "Windred," "Esen" is a Turkish name meaning "the wind," further referencing her type specialty.
* NotGoodWithPeople: A mixture of the two types.
* PeekABangs
* SheCleansUpNicely: During the Liberty Ball.
* SugarAndIcePersonality
* TheQuietOne

!!Eileen Alaric
Sleight's wife, a woman noted by Sang for her powerful presence and fierce determination.
----
* AscendedExtra: First appeared as an off-hand mention in the time skip post (as well as having been briefly mentioned by [=McKlellen=] during Team Rocket's assault on Soil Colossus); later becomes much more important when her son is kidnapped.
* {{Badass}}: She lasted much longer and did more damage against the Darkrai that Ford sent to attack her than Sang's entire team did, which is saying something.
* {{Determinator}}: Part of Sang's observations about her during a brief encounter.
* MamaBear: The overall impression she gives off to Sang in a very brief encounter.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: While not exactly "royal," she ''is'' the wife of the most powerful man in Kanto, and she insists on personally joining the search for her missing son.

!!Levi Alaric
Sleight's son, who disappeared under unknown circumstances shortly after the six month time skip. Later revealed to have been abducted and recruited by the Hojohsin League as the Eighth Child.
----
* AscendedExtra: First appeared as an off-hand mention in the time skip post (as well as having been briefly mentioned by [=McKlellen=] during Team Rocket's assault on Soil Colossus), and was later kidnapped under mysterious circumstances.

* CodeName: Calvin Truman, the Eighth Child.
* CoveredWithScars: According to his mother, courtesy of an accident that occurred shortly before the beginning of the story.
* MindRape: Implied to be enduring this in his introductory post.

* ShoutOut: His CodeName was specifically chosen as a reference to ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Described as having black hair and blue eyes, just like his mother and father, though notably not as icy-intense of a blue as his father.
* TroubledChild
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Wore one when he appeared in Havoc. Much like his general presence there and cooperation with Ford, he likely did not don it willingly. It was later discarded on James Pierce's orders.

The [[Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie original]] Mewtwo.
----
* BerserkButton: Threatening, harming, and especially [[spoiler: killing]] his fellow clones.

* DespairEventHorizon: Suffered a severe case after [[spoiler: the other cloned Pokémon were killed.]]

!!Mewtwo/"Mewthree"
Another Mewtwo created by a Unovan bounty hunting company at the request of Ford.
----
* CloningBlues: Surprisingly averted; Mewthree is aware of why and how he was created and has not shown any negative feelings toward that reason.
* [[invoked]]FanNickname: To differentiate him from Mewtwo.
* FromASingleCell: His Recover abilities are shown to be ''much'' more potent than those of the original Mewtwo.
* SkilledButNaive: As a newly born Pokémon, Mewthree still has yet to master his powers.

!!Ho-Oh
A legendary bird Pokémon.
----
* {{Badass}}
* BerserkButton: Will absolutely destroy any sources of evil that it locates, as the Searchers found out the hard way.
* [[TheNthDoctor The Nth Ho-Oh]]: Is capable of regenerating when killed, albeit with a new personality. As of its battle against Feral, Ho-Oh is on its third life.
* ShoutOut: Unsurprisingly, the rules regarding Ho-Oh's regeneration were directly inspired by Series/DoctorWho.

!!Raikou/Shekou/Sheik
A female Raikou from Orre who later joined Team Liberty.
----
* AscendedExtra: Started out as a random Raikou in Orre; by now she has turned into virtually a full-fledged Team Liberty agent.

* ShoutOut: See Fan Nickname.

It was later revealed that she was formerly the queen of the Deoxys race on their home planet; after seeing their actions on Earth, she relinquished her position in disgust.

Odin, Vili, and Vé are a trio of lower-power Deoxys revived by Ariadne and a group of Latios and Latias. Each is confined to a single, specialized form, coinciding with the colors of the gems in their chests, and all three serve as Ariadne's honor guard.
----
* ColorCodedCharacters:
*** Purple -- Ariadne -- All
*** Red -- Odin -- Attack
*** Blue -- Vili -- Defense
*** Green -- Vé -- Speed
* MeaningfulName: Xalpha = ex-Alpha, following the relinquishment of her position.

* SamusIsAGirl: Most assumed Ariadne was a male before her true gender was revealed.
* ShoutOut: Ariadne's true name was directly inspired by Film/{{Inception}}.

!!Celebi
----
* NevertheSelvesShallMeet: Implied with how Celebi told James not to come back to his office until after she threw him back in time. But knowing Celebi, it's more likely invoked for her convenience more than anything else.

* KilledOffForReal
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: His reaction to his HeelRealization.

!!Maxie
Team Magma's primary leader. After realizing the folly of his ways, he reformed and has transformed Team Magma in an organization of good.
----

* DemotedToExtra: After his player left.

Team Aqua's primary leader. Archie was imprisoned along with Maxie following the conclusion of the Hoenn saga; unlike Maxie, he did not reform, and has been imprisoned in Lilycove City for some time now.

----
* DealWithTheDevil: Attempted this with Feral.
* KilledOffForReal
* NeckSnap
* ShutUpHannibal: Delivered by Sabrina.

!!The Six Sages
The six Sages of Team Plasma.
----
* AMillionIsAStatistic: Averted. They explicitly condemn Evan's decision regarding Hayes because he operated under this mindset.
** This actually appears to be a BerserkButton for Rood, who absolutely ''flips out'' when Kinali reassures him that the damaged land of Unova will be fine, without mentioning the people whose lives were lost in the battle.
* ChessMotifs: The structure for their organization's ranking system.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Applies to certain Sages more than others, but Gorm is the best example.
* WhatTheHellHero: Deliver one to Evan following Hayes' defeat, as he forfeited an opportunity to bring her in.
** They later deliver another one to the main player group after Palkia and Black-Kyurem destroy a large chunk of Unova.

* BirthDeathJuxtaposition: A very downplayed example, but Gluttony's first appearance is in a graveyard, where his powers prompt flowers to spring to life in his wake.
* GreenThumb: His elemental motif.
* LeanAndMean
* MeaningfulName:
** "Albero" is Italian for "Tree."
** Subverted with "[=DeLargo=]," which was originally supposed to be "[=DeLarge=]," serving as a reference to Alex [=DeLarge=] of [[Literature/AClockworkOrange A Clockwork Orange]]--creating a triple reference due to the two characters' shared initials, as well as the fact that orange is both a fruit (Albero's elemental motif) and the color of Albero's Aura. However, it was changed to "[=DeLargo=]" by Alku before the character officially appeared, which--being the term for a slow tempo--fits with the idea of Albero taking longer than his fellows to become fully corrupted.
* NiceGuy: Tried to be this before his corruption fully took over.
* Invoked/TheOtherDarrin: Very much zig-zagged. Parugi wrote for Gluttony during his very first appearance and for the post in which Albero [=DeLargo=]'s last semblances of humanity were devoured, as well as some small posts beforehand leading up to that event. He was supposed to take over permanently after that point, until Alku decided to keep control of the character at the last minute.

* DoNotTauntCthulhu: Aria responds to his questions regarding their methods by shattering his glass of wine. It is heavily implied as he leaves that he could have easily killed her for
the ''Rise transgression then and there in he had felt like it.
* FantasticRacism: His HannibalLecture regarding Aria's pride--as well as those of her allies--almost makes it seem as if he will challenge her... until he notes that she is nothing but a Pokémon meant to serve others and promptly exits.
* {{Foil}}: To Gluttony, his "partner" Sin. Gluttony started out with a full focus on combating his target in a physical manner, and only began to shift to a more mental arena when he finally lost the struggle against his corruption and fully became his Sin. Pride fell almost immediately to his corruption and has so far not thrown a single punch at his three targets, instead choosing to pick them apart verbally. Gluttony revealed his entire team almost as soon as he first appeared, whereas Pride has only shown one of his. Where Gluttony, in either of his states, appears to have full control over his emotions, Pride is prone to sudden shifts in mood. And then, of course, there's the fact that Gluttony appeared in a location naturally full of his element, while Pride warped his location of choice into a frozen wasteland in the middle of summer.
* HannibalLecture: Delivers one to Dack, Hannah, and Aspen. ''[[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech Especially]]'' [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech Hannah]].

* IronicName: "Stolz", which bares more than a passing resemblance to Sloth's last name ("Holts"), considering how hung up Pride appears to be regarding "false Pride-bearers."
* ManOfWealthAndTaste
* MeaningfulName[=/=]SignificantAnagram:
** Triply so with his first name: "Gelar" is an anagram of "Regal", and by taking away the "r" to make "Gela", his name becomes the Italian word for "Freezes." Along with that, "G" is the seventh letter

* WeatherDissonance: After his short confrontation with Aria, the summer weather in Celadon is quickly replaced with a heavy snowfall.
* WineIsClassy: First appears in the public eye with a wine glass full of... [[SubvertedTrope some sort of non-alcoholic grape concoction]]. Because he's physically underage. But the aesthetic is still there.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Is only 17, and thus the youngest of the Sins, but he certainly doesn't look it.

Gluttony started out with a full focus on combating his target in a physical manner, and only began to shift to a more mental arena when he finally lost the struggle against his corruption and fully became his Sin. Pride fell almost immediately to his corruption and has so far not thrown a single punch at his three targets, instead choosing to pick them apart verbally. Gluttony revealed his entire team almost as soon as he first appeared, whereas Pride has only shown one of his. Where Gluttony, in either of his states, appears to have full control over his emotions, Pride is prone to sudden shifts in mood. And then, of course, there's the fact that Gluttony appeared in a location naturally full of his element, while Pride warped his location of choice into a frozen wasteland in the middle of summer.

* WeatherDissonance: After his short confrontation with Aria, the summer weather in Celadon is quickly replaced with a heavy snowfall.
* WineIsClassy: First appears in the public eye with a wine glass full of... [[SubvertedTrope some sort of non-alcoholic grape concoction]]. Because he's physically underage. But the aesthetic is still there.

!!Celebi
----
* NevertheSelvesShallMeet: Implied with how Celebi told James not to come back
to his questions regarding their methods by shattering his glass of wine. It is heavily implied as he leaves that he could have easily killed her for the transgression then and there in he had felt like it.
* FantasticRacism: His HannibalLecture regarding Aria's pride--as well as those of her allies--almost makes it seem as if he will challenge her...
office until he notes that after she is nothing but a Pokémon meant to serve others and promptly exits.
* {{Foil}}: To Gluttony, his "partner" Sin. Gluttony started out with a full focus on combating his target
threw him back in a physical manner, and only began to shift to a time. But knowing Celebi, it's more mental arena when he finally lost the struggle against his corruption and fully became his Sin. Pride fell almost immediately to his corruption and has so far not thrown a single punch at his three targets, instead choosing to pick them apart verbally. Gluttony revealed his entire team almost as soon as he first appeared, whereas Pride has only shown one of his. Where Gluttony, in either of his states, appears to have full control over his emotions, Pride is prone to sudden shifts in mood. And then, of course, there's the fact that Gluttony appeared in a location naturally full of his element, while Pride warped his location of choice into a frozen wasteland in the middle of summer.
* HannibalLecture: Delivers one to Dack, Hannah, and Aspen. ''[[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech Especially]]'' [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech Hannah]].
* HumanoidAbomination: As demonstrated when Aria attempted to read his aura. Suffice to say that what she saw made no sense whatsoever.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Pride controls ice. In other words, he gives people the cold shoulder.
** In a similar vein--and this was [[AccidentalPun accidental]]--take a good, long look at the title of [[Literature/PrideAndPrejudice Pride and Prejudice]].
* IronicName: "Stolz", which bares
likely invoked for her convenience more than a passing resemblance to Sloth's last name ("Holts"), considering how hung up Pride appears to be regarding "false Pride-bearers."

in the battle against battle.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Applies to certain Sages more than others, but Gorm is
the Darkrai have been shown best example.

* CurtainsMatchTheWindows: Maroon hair and eyes.
* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Expy}}: Of [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Claire Stanfield]].

* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Done by [=McKinley=]'s Xatu after he [[ForTheEvulz deliberately]] told Sang the details of Ford's current plan, leaving Sang to try and find a way to undo the damage.
* LastNameBasis: Only ever referred to as Sang, even by the narration. The one aversion has been with a flashback to his childhood, in which his friend Emre referred to him as Jack.
* MeaningfulName: "Sang" comes directly from "sanguinary," a descriptor meaning something "involving or causing much bloodshed."
* MercyKill: Delivered one to Tate and Ash.
* MyGreatestFailure: Failed to stop Ash Ketchum from being brainwashed by Elton, and thus failed the contract he was on. Apparently the first time he has ever lost in his life. On the plus side, he did manage to save Misty, Darren, and a bunch of other prisoners.
** Has another in the form of his childhood friend Emre, who almost died to a pack of Mightyena and then died several years later when the two were mugged.
* TookALevelInBadass: As shown by a flashback, nine-year-old Sang was not the strongest kid on the block.

!!Kane
A man who appeared underneath Opelucid some time after the Ancients' defeat and was subsequently freed by Feral.
----

* UnderestimatingBadassery: ''Severely'' underestimated how far Sleight would go to retaliate against him.

!!Team Zephyr
A group of eight trainers who took over the Celadon Department Store. At the moment, not much is known about them, but they seem to have some sort of interest in Rayquaza.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Skye.
* BlowYouAway: The main theme of their team is the Flying-Type, as evidenced by their name and their interest in Rayquaza. Certain members did not get the memo.
* BoxedCrook: Ethan convinced the police to give them this opportunity. Only Skye and Skylark took up the offer.
* CatchPhrase: Windy's "As if."
* {{Expy}}: 3/8 of the team have been based around this.
** Skyler heavily invokes [[{{Franchise/ScoobyDoo}} Shaggy Rogers]], and his Pokémon team consists of [[JustForPun punny]] references to the rest of the Mystery Inc. gang.
** Skylark is obsessed with music, has a brother named Chip, and is part of a band with said brother called the [[{{WesternAnimation/TheFairlyoddparents}} Chipped Skylarks]].
** Skye is not a reference to anyone in particular; however, in her introduction she is revealed to be a comic book nerd who idolizes such heroes as [[{{Franchise/Batman}} Crobatman]], [[{{Franchise/GreenLantern}} Green Lanturn]], [[{{Franchise/SpiderMan}} Spinarak-Man]], [[{{ComicBook/FantasticFour}} The Human Torchic]], and [[{{ComicBook/Hawkeye}} Hawlucha-Eye]]. Coincidentally, she also shares a name with [[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD another superhero-related group member named Skye.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Windy attempted to use a mysterious green orb to summon and control Rayquaza, and when it did not work she began to mishandle it. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a Transfer Orb, which ended up merging her with her Pidgeot.
* MeaningfulName: All of Team Zephyr's members' names evoke the sky or the wind in some form or another. Yet, even so...
* OddNameOut: Team Zephyr consists of Skylon, Skyle, Skylark, Skyler, Skya, Skylah, Skye, and their leader... Windy.

* ActionGirl
* AmnesiacHero: She doesn't remember anything about her life before the age of ten or so.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBookworm: Often, her inner monologues during battle reference the combat training she received, which thus far has covered basic topics like type advantages to more nuanced studies like the battle styles of specific Gym Leaders and Pokémon.
* BlowYouAway: All of her Pokémon so far have been Flying-Type, much like her mother.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Gets two shortly after her introduction.
** First, she makes short work of the same Gym Leader-strength Pokémon that had handily defeated TL Agents Jenny and Hex moments before her arrival, through virtually perfect use of type advantages, immunities and superior strength.
** After telling off Silvermind for her role in Ace's death, she nonetheless saves the Liberty Admin from what could have been a lethal Charge Beam attack, suffering an injury to herself in the process.
* MeaningfulName: In addition to the "wind" in "Windred," "Esen" is a Turkish name meaning "the wind," further referencing her type specialty.
* NotGoodWithPeople: A mixture of the two types.

* {{Badass}}: She lasted much longer and did more damage against the Darkrai that Ford sent to attack her than Sang's entire team did, which is saying something.
* {{Determinator}}: Part of Sang's observations about her during a brief encounter.
* MamaBear: The overall impression she gives off to Sang in a very brief encounter.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: While not exactly "royal," she ''is'' the wife of the most powerful man in Kanto, and she insists on personally joining the search for her missing son.

!!Levi Alaric
Sleight's son, who disappeared under unknown circumstances shortly after the six month time skip. Later revealed to have been abducted and recruited by the Hojohsin League as the Eighth Child.
----
* AscendedExtra: First appeared as an off-hand mention in the time skip post (as well as having been briefly mentioned by [=McKlellen=] during Team Rocket's assault on Soil Colossus), and was later kidnapped under mysterious circumstances.

* CoveredWithScars: According to his mother, courtesy of an accident that occurred shortly before the beginning of the story.
* MindRape: Implied to be enduring this in his introductory post.

* StrongFamilyResemblance: Described as having black hair and blue eyes, just like his mother and father, though notably not as icy-intense of a blue as his father.

Odin, Vili, and Vé are a trio of lower-power Deoxys revived by Ariadne and a group of Latios and Latias. Each is confined to a single, specialized form, coinciding with the colors of the gems in their chests, and all three serve as Ariadne's honor guard.
