Original Characters introduced in:
     A New World, A New Way 

Gene Phillips

A young trainer who fell in love with his Gardevoir, Belle. As a result, he was branded an international criminal for the felony of 'Pokephilia' (ignoring the fact that he and Belle really are in love). Amongst the humans who were sent to Equestria, he is one of the few who whole heartedly accepted this, and even does not want to go back to being human, as in Equestria he and Belle are now free to live their lives together. His Pokemon form is Gallade.

Unnamed Trainer

An unnamed trainer who has so far only appeared in the Prologue. He was the one responsible for breaking the seal on Arceus' Pocket Dimension, intending to battle and capture the god. His fate is currently unknown. Also, due to his personality at the beginning, it is likely he was not chosen to come to Equestria, and thus does not have a Pokemon form. His only known Pokemon are a Blaziken and a Dusknoir.
  • Pride: What seems to have motivated him to challenge Arceus. This may or may not have led him to his own doom
  • Too Dumb to Live: If there was a picture of him, he might have earned the right to be the poster boy, since he actually thinks its a good idea to go and pick a fight with a god.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: While not quite that severe, its because of him that Arceus was able to escape from his imprisonment. Of course, considering that the Legendaries took most of the Pokemon and good people from Earth...
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He only appears once, and is not mentioned again. Added with the fact that Arceus MAY have sent him to a volcanic cavern...

Belle Phillips

A female Gardevoir that belonged to Gene and was his starting Pokemon. She and Gene fell in love some time before the start of the fic, an act that was frowned upon in the Pokemon world, forcing them to live life on the run from the authorities. Currently, due to the fact that Equestria has no laws against Interspecies Romance, they are now free to live their lives together.


A male Houndoom that belonged to Gene. While not really explained, Fang seems to have had a rough life before Gene rescued him, which earned Fang's loyalty (so much so that Fang was actually sad when he realized that Gene wasn't his trainer anymore). He fully supports his master's relationship with his teammate, and is very happy for them. Also, despite being a ferocious Houndoom, he acts more like a normal loyal dog around Gene.

  • Big Friendly Dog: Whenever Gene is around. For reference, Houndoom are only 20 cm shorter than Gallade.
  • Cameo: makes one in A Brave New World
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Fang grew up in Hoenn, where Dark types had a bad rap. He found Gene, and decided to be adopted by him.
  • Happily Adopted: Fang is considered an adopted Pokèmon, as he was caught by a trainer without either side battling.
  • Slasher Smile: Has one for a brief moment before he is siced on Prince Blueblood.
  • Undying Loyalty: Not surprising.


A male Flygon that belonged to Gene. He cares a lot about his trainer, going so far as considering Gene his "hatch-mate", which is the Pokemon term for brother. Draco shows a great amount of loyalty to Gene, going so far as attacking a Gallade that had been acting close to Belle. Too bad he didn't realize that Gallade was Gene.


A female Mismagius that belonged to Gene.
  • Book Worm: Mage is said to be somewhat of this, particularly to history.


A magestic Dragonair. She was found outside of Ponyvile.


A Galvantula found inside the Schoolhouse.

Celestia's Aegislash

An Aegislash that appeared in the Everfree Forest. It decided to pledge its loyalty to Princess Celestia, seeing as it considered her worthy, and has since become Celestia's (unwanted) guard. Its gender is unconfirmed as of yet, but Celestia has referred to it as a he.

  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Sadly he is currently this, as Celestia was NOT happy when he upped and decided to pledge his loyalty to her. Of course, since at the time Celestia wanted the Pokemon gone from Equus, this might change overtime.


The God of Pokemon. After being freed from his dimensional prision, Arcues moves the mass majority of pokemon to Equis to get them away from the Human race.

  • A God Am I: He actually laughs when Celestia asks him if he 'considers' himself a God.
  • Didn't Think This Through: The whole main plot of the story. He show a bit of humility by eventually admitting it.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Arceus may act Holier Than Thou at times, but he is willing to admit he makes mistakes, and try to fix them the best he can.
  • The Needless: He doesn't need to eat, drink or sleep. The latter means that despite everything he has a lot free time.

Other Pokèmon

Other pokemon that have been encountered by ponykind. They include Celestia's Ninetails, Luna's Swablu, Rarity's Spritzee, Zap the Rotom, Entropy the Porygon Z, the pokemon at fluttershy's cottagenote ,Scootaloo's Charmander, Sweetie Belle's Squirtle, and Applebloom's Bulbasaur.

  • Lampshade Hanging: Zap was in Pinkie Pie's hair when she pulled somethign out of it. He knew somethign was up as he looked inside her hair minutes wans wondered where the object that come from.
  • Power Trio: The Cutie Mark Crusader's Pokemon, consisting of a Fire, Water, and Grass pokèmon. Bonus points for the three being the Kanto Stater Pokèmon.

Legendary Council

A group comprised of all Legendary Pokemon that are known (from Generation 1 to Generation 6). Under Arceus' leadership, they are the ones who ultimately started the entire plot of the fic.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Definitely Heatran.
  • Dysfunctional Family: They mostly cooperate, but some of them don't really like each other. Yveltal actually had doubts about all of them being together until Darkrai talked him into coming.

My Little Pony

Hard Proof/Paranoia

A Unicorn Stallion from Trottingham. He's one of the few characters who seems to be absolutely against Pokemon (going so far as to refusing to consider them as anything other than monsters), and for that matter, is shown to be a flat out racist and a Xenophobe. Ironically, despite his Cutie Mark being that of an information web (suggesting his talent is information gathering), he seems to make little use of it, making accusations solely on the incident where an Aggron (likely very confused) attacked Trottingham, despite said Aggron being driven away by May and Blaziken who had then explained the situation. Fittingly enough, this has earned him the nickname: Paranoia from the towns people.

  • Absolute Xenophobe: He's worse than even Blueblood, since his Xenophobia extends to any species other than Ponies, and even then he's distrustful of anyone who doesn't see things his way. It gets worse. He openly shows contempt to anyone who doesn't see things his way, no matter who it is, even if its a Princess, and even calls Twilight (and also implies this to Princess Celestia) a 'traitor' simply for showing acceptance/friendship to the Pokemon
  • Too Dumb to Live: Yeah, Paranoia. Go and attack the Delphox who used to be human when her Blaziken who has a Bodyguard Crush on her is standing right there. That'll be the PERFECT way to make a statement...provided that statement is: Come and get me.


     The City is Always Bustling on The Other Side 

Nick (Nicholas "Nick" Harvesti)

A young man who appears in the side story, "The City is Always Bustling on the Other Side", as one of the main characters. He is an adventurous person who would often go to incredible lengths just to experience the sights and adventures of the many regions. He initially thought his coming to Equestria was all just a dream, but quickly realized it was not the case. Shortly after, he gained a liking for his new form and abilities, liking being a Pokemon more than being a human and also seemes to harbor feelings for his Lucario, Elena. His Pokemon form is Zoroark
  • Almost Out of Oxygen: Nearly gets crushed by a Tyranitar. Good thing Elena got there just in time
  • Bodyguard Crush: His Lucario, Elena, seems to have this for him, and the ending of the side story suggests that he returns her feelings.
  • Call to Adventure: He jumps at any chance for an adventure, something that he did as a child and never really grew out of it.
  • Cameo: Appears in the main story.
  • Casting a Shadow: Being a Zoroark gives him this.
  • The Ditz: Apparently he has a minor issue with this, since outside of battle, he seems to get easily distracted, especially when traveling.
  • Instant Expert: He learned how to control Zoroark's illusion abilities extremely quickly. Of course, since they're said to be more imagination based, it might not have been all that hard.


A female Lucario that belonged to Nick, and was his starter Pokemon. Elena is extremely loyal and protective of Nick, and though motivated mostly by her sense of loyalty, underneath that its revealed that she secretly harbors feelings for Nick, yet does not want to act on them as she considers the strict trainer-Pokemon relationship as sacred. Her feelings for Nick finally become known to him after he turns into a Zoroark, and its suggested that he returns her feelings.

  • Big Damn Hero: At the end of the one-shot
  • Bodyguard Crush: Has this for Nick. Turns out she had this since before they came to Equus.
  • Undying Loyalty: Being a Lucario, she is very much loyal to Nick, though its really a mixture of this, and the fact that she harbors feelings for him


A female Mawile that belonged to Nick. Terra considers Nick a dear friend, showing genuine hurt when she though he had abandoned her, and sticking with him when it became apparent that that was not the case. Terra's relationship with Nick is more casual and friendly compared to Elena's more strict and professional relationship with Nick, though she is very much aware of Elena's true feelings, and thus often teased Elena whilst urging her to make her feelings known.

  • Big Eater: She's a Mawile.
  • Shipper on Deck: Loves to tease Elena about her feelings for Nick, and whole heartedly supports the idea of them entering a relationship
    • Die for Our Ship: When seeing Elena flirting with Meinshao, Terra freaked out and started criticizing her for this. Averted as it turned out that Nick cast an illusion over Ceelly to make her appear like Elena.

My Little Pony

Cheap Skate

An Earth Pony Stallion from Manehattan. Little is known about him, though his personality shows a cross between a gambler, a cheater, a gangster, and a dirty coward. Prior to the beginning of the fic, he lost a bet to Vinyl Scratch, but instead of accepting the loss, he goes through insane lengths to get the money, whilst flat out ignoring the fact that Vinyl won fair and square. Turns out, it was only 50 bits

  • Disproportionate Retribution: Sics a Tyranitar on Nick and Terra which could have very likely killed them, despite them never harming so much as a hair on his mane. The lengths he went to force Vinyl to pay up for beating him at a bet also counts, especially since it was only 50 bits. I'm pretty sure the Tyranitar costed far more than that
  • Dirty Coward: Most of his antagonistic acts are done only when he has help backing him up. The only time he does something by himself was when he threatened Vinyl and Octavia...and even that was done with a knife, which may TECHNICALLY count as backup.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Going after a couple of musicians is one thing, but attacking a princess firmly puts him here.

     Pokemon, A 'New' Frontier 


A young man who appears in "Pokemon, A 'New' Frontier" as one of the main characters. He is a kind man who cares deeply for his Pokemon (going so far as to not even want to throw Pokeballs at them to catch them...even if he doesn't mind weakening them first), particularly his Meowstic, Nao. He is particularly fond of Nao, treating her with affection that is borderline considered Pokephilia, something that's got them in trouble more than once. His Pokemon form was originally Espurr, but he has since evolved into a Meowstic

  • Cuteness Proximity: Seems to treat his Meowstic, Nao, this way. Turns out he has this for all things cute and fluffy.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Oh boy, despite Jayce's happy go lucky personality, its revealed that he has easily the darkest past of any of the main characters of the series. To explain, Jayce was orphaned at the age of 13 when his parents were murdered in a cruise ship bombing, leaving him the only survivor. Since then, the only family he would eventually have is his future Pokemon team, starting with Nao
  • Friend to All Living Things: Has shades of this, though nowhere nearly as extreme as the full trope.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Whenever a particularly serious situation arises, he loses his goofy personality.
  • Parental Abandonment: Murdered in an explosion at a party on a boat.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: As an Espurr. A little less cute as a Meowstic
  • Spit Take: Does this when Trustful Grace asks if Nao is his wife.


A Meowstic who appears in "Pokemon, A 'New' Frontier", and Jayce's starter Pokemon. She and Jayce share an...interesting relationship while on Earth, which has turned into full on romance since they came to Equus. At first glance, Nao may seem to have all the affection of a house cat, but in reality she really cares for Jayce and often worries about him.

My Little Pony

Rock Soup (Rocky Hooves)

An Earth Pony stallion from Hollow Shades, Rock Soup is a little...out there.

Trustful Grace

A kind Earth Pony mare from Hollow Shades. She's the unofficial mayor of the town and is the most level headed Pony there.

  • Cuteness Overload: Her reaction upon seeing Nao carrying Jayce as an Espurr. To quote her: "what appeared to be a kitten being held by a cat"
  • Dope Slap: Does this to Rock Soup when the later was being an idiot...again.
  • Good Samaritan: More or less the reason why she's the unofficial mayor of Hollow Shades, even is she admits that it gets tiring at times.
  • Only Sane Pony: She's the only Pony from Hollow Shades (so far) who isn't overly superstitious, and actually gives the Pokemon a chance.

     A New World, A New Way - Swarm 

Jacob "X" Arrow

The main human of ''A New Way, A New World - Swarm". X is a construction worker whom isn't very fond of Pokemon battles, partially due to the fact that his parents are world famous Pokemon Trainers. His pokemon form is Chesnaught.

  • Berserk Button: He does not like it when his Pokemon friends get insulted.
  • Drop the Hammer: Sometime after Swarm he carried around a large hammer.
    • Also knows Hammer Arm, which he can somehow channel through his hammer.

ShadowFox Construction

X's pokemon team consisting of Naruto the Zoroark, Azisa the Trevenant, Inti the Heliolisk, and Apocalypse the Tyrunt. All of them work with X as construction workers. They are somewhat of a dysfunctional family...

My Little Pony


A Changeling from the Changleing Empire, Nell is unsure of her future. She wishes to train as a merchant like her father.

Nell's Family

Nell's family. They consist of her two brood sisters Nall and Nalel, her father Citel, her mother Hira, and her five younger brood brothers.

Emperor Carapace

The true leader of the Changeling Empire, whom Queen Chrysalis' grandfather.

  • Cool Airship: Arrives to the World Summit in once, which is large enough to carry an Evolved Apocalypse.
  • Horse of a Different Color: Justified. While Equinoids can be used to pull carriages, it's more of a job, and the rich tend to use other species for the job since they can afford it. Which is exactly why Carapace has two tigers pull his carriage instead of two changelings.
  • Green Thumb: Loves plants and has a few grass based spells.
  • Travel Cool: His royal carrage is Gothic in style, and is pulled by two tigers.
  • Serious Business: He takes his garden way to seriously.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Battled against Blastoie, proving his power.
  • Rule of Cool: His tiger pulled carriage.

Rizen and Silver Heart

Those Two Guys that are part of the Changeling royal gaurd. They serve as two of Carapaces trusted warriors and advisors.

  • Half-Changeling hybrid Silver Heart is half changeling and half earth pony. This caused him to be discriminated against until he saved those whom bullied him from being crushed to death by debris.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Silver is the red oni, as he is very crass and sarcastic while the calm analyitcan and former psychiatrist Rizen is the blue.
  • Super Strength: Due to his half Earth Pony heritage, Silver Heart is pyschically stronger than most changelings.

     A Brave New World 

Seth Crescent

Seth Crescent is the main human character of A Brave New World. He supports Human/Pokemon relationships, but due to his stance he is rendered a social outcast. His pokemon form in Equus is Luxray.

  • Chick Magnet: He's had females of multiple species making passes at him.
    • Clueless Chick Magnet: And he's completely oblivious to any of it. Somewhat adverted. He just pretends to be clueless. Sometimes.
  • Rage Against the Heavens: He has a bout of this in chapter 3. Justified, since Arceus' actions have basically made his 7 years of being a Zombie Advocate for Pokemon/Human relationships (and all the trouble/peril that came with it) completely meaningless.
  • Shock and Awe: Due to now becoming a Luxray.
  • Something Only They Would Say: Seth tells Rika several things only she would know to prove that he's really Seth.
  • Zombie Advocate: Seth supports Human/Pokemon relationships, though he himself is not in one. Thus, he is considered a social outcast


Seth's Sylevon. Upon awakening in Canterlot, she was problty captured by Photo Finish to be used in a Photo Shoot.


Seth's Absol. She apparently awakened in Canterlot. She is stated to have feelings for Nick, but doesn't seem to actively pursue him.

Ignis Cresscent

Seth's Charizard, whom was his starter Pokemon. Despite leaving Seth's group to pursue his dream of becoming the best, he still cares for Seth like a brother.

  • But Now I Must Go: Leaves the party in order to become strong enough to battle the Legendary Pokemon


Seth's Sandshrew, and the latest addition to his team.

     Burning An Old Way 


A human trainer who wakes up on the outskirts of the Crystal Empire. So far, while his exact occupation is unknown, he is shown to be affiliated with the police, or some kind of authority back on Earth. His Pokemon form is Infernape.

  • Playing with Fire: Annoyingly for him, as his new flaming head almost burns down a coffee shop.


A male Luxray who belonged to John.


A female Absol who belonged to John.

  • Dark Is Not Evil: She's a Dark-Type Pokemon, and she's one of the main characters.



A Joltik with a little too much energy that John found on Holly Heart.

My Little Pony

Holly Heart

  • Interspecies Romance: She falls for John surprisingly quickly. Its later suggested that the Crystal Heart's influence helped them along with it
  • Shrinking Violet: She's this at times.

Sir Clay

Green Horn

  • Disproportionate Retribution: What? Sir Clay was being a Jerkass and a Pokemon threw him out a window (without seriously hurting him) in retaliation? Your answer? Try to get ALL the Pokemon kicked out of the Crystal Empire.
  • Humiliation Conga: Not only does John prove that their motive for wanting to get the Pokemon kicked out are purely selfish and petty, but they end up getting kicked off the council too.

Winter Breeze

  • Disproportionate Retribution: What? Sir Clay was being a Jerkass and a Pokemon threw him out a window (without seriously hurting him) in retaliation? Your answer? Try to get ALL the Pokemon kicked out of the Crystal Empire.
  • Humiliation Conga: Not only does John prove that their motive for wanting to get the Pokemon kicked out are purely selfish and petty, but they end up getting kicked off the council too.

My Little Pony

     A New World, A New Stage 

Alice Maximilion/Phantom Thief Fox

The latest in the long line of Phantom Thieves, and a Pokemon Researcher (in-training). So far she has been content with continuing her work as Fox...and has been doing a pretty good job of it all things considered. Her Pokemon form is (unsurprisingly) Zorua, later Zoroark.
  • Animal Motifs: The Foxes have always used Zoroark as their symbol, to the point that even Alice as a human is often described as being 'A Zoroark in a human body'.
  • Benevolent Boss: While her position as 'trainer' is really just a formality to her team, she cares greatly for them, even prioritizing everyone escaping safely over actually succeeding in a heist. Though she's not above using some danger as a learning experience if she feels it necessary.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Her main theme, as in both human AND Pokemon form, she uses illusions and tricks to fool her opponents, and her team's main two members are both Dark-type Pokemon.
  • Crazy-Prepared: How she pulls off some of her harder heists. In fact, its part of why her entire line has been able to remain uncaught for 5 CENTURIES.
  • Lineage Comes from the Father: While her parents haven't actually appeared on-screen, it is known that she inherited the title of Fox from her father, while her mother hasn't been mentioned much, though Word of God states that both her parents are alive and well.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: It should be noted that as a human, Alice really didn't have all that many human friends, and growing up, her only real human friend was Jonathan.
  • Lovable Rogue: In either identity, she's not a bad person, and is really quite nice and polite...even if she sometimes trolls her opponents, and even then its to rile them up.
  • MacGyvering: While not explicitly seen, one has to wonder how she is making advanced gadgets with...likely whatever she has on hand (doesn't count of the gadgets Toichi makes for her though).
  • Phantom Thief: Do we really have to explain?
  • Secret Identity: Played with since coming to Equus, but generally only people inside Sleight and Storm's circle know that Alice and Fox are one and the same. Of course, there's also Alice herself and her team.
  • Expy: Alice as Fox is a clear allusion to other fictional Thieves, namely Kaito Kid, Arsene Lupin, Catwoman, Sly Cooper, and Carmen Sandiego.
  • Villain Protagonist: Very much Averted. While she can be more of an Anti-Hero, she is still firmly in hero territory with her motives and actions.



Charlotte and Spinner

(General) Scep

Jonathan Trace

A dedicated police officer, and the one in charge of dealing with Fox related cases, Jonathan comes from a long line of law enforcers, and does his job with pride and determination. His Pokemon form is Riolu, later Lucario.

  • A Brother To His Team: Jonathan cares greatly for his team and anyone working with him, though his exact relation is closer to that of a concerned older brother. Note: This also extends to Fox when they work together.
  • The Rival: He's been after Fox for 5 years, and his entire family has been known to be the only ones who could come close to catching Fox in the various generations.
  • Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist: He's actually the second main protagonist of the fic, only being 'antagonistic' due to trying to catch Fox. He really doesn't have a single evil bone in him.




My Little Pony


Sleight Hoof and Quick Storm

An elderly Pony couple, the two of them found Alice as a Zorua, with Quick Storm adopting her as a sort of pet. Alice helps them bury their pasts, and even shares her ideals with them, making them her main two supporters on Equus.
  • Benevolent Boss: They treat their servants very well, to the point of them having Undying Loyalty to the old couple. Heck, when the danger of their old gang retaliating was possible, the old couple was more worried about their servants getting hurt than say...their mansion being torched to the ground.
  • Cool old couple: While not exactly action focused, they are pretty cool in their own ways.


A young Unicorn, and Sleight and Storm's adoptive son. He is shown to be quite intelligent, with a strong talent for magic, with enchanting being his special talent.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: A magical example, he often creates a lot of magical gadgets that help Alice/Fox.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Justified...sorta. His adoptive parents may be rich, but he's had to pretend that he was their servant rather than son for much of the time before Alice came along. That...might not have given him many options in the friends department.
  • Shout-Out: Named after the first Kaitou Kid
  • Undying Loyalty: He begins to see Fox as his idol and wants to be like her. It gets to point where he is willing to openly resist authority figures like Johnathan and Steven and defend Alice’s honor.

The Equestria Irregulars (Info Scoop, Picture Perfect, and White Ink)

A trio who are good friends with Sleight and Storm, and like them, former members of a criminal gang. The three of them generally help Alice/Fox via providing information and tip offs on local crime lords, depending on the city.

    New World, New Bonds 


A trainer-turned-Froakie. The Only Sane Man of this story's Pokemon trio.


A wild Riolu, given the nickname Liu by Midnight when she couldn't pronounce his actual name. A child and Keet.


A trainer and former Team Rocket grunt turned into a Honedge. A bit of a jerkass.

Casey's Team


A female Litwick who prefers to avoid battle.

  • Badass Pacifist: Likes to avoid battle, but can still fight when necessary and is rather good at it.
  • Precocious Crush: Implied to have one on Casey, though their ages are vague.


A male Trevenant, who is very wise and polite. Was previously owned by a similarly wise Psychic trainer and eventually traded to Casey.


Ryan's only Pokemon, a very powerful Blastoise.

  • Big Damn Heroes: How he makes his appearance.
  • The Stoic: Aside from his reunion with Ryan, he is always perfectly calm.

My Little Pony


A pegasus mare who briefly kidnaps Ryan, finding him cute, and soon provides shelter and company for the whole group.

  • Nice Girl: It takes a lot from even Casey to put her past just snippy remarks.

Canon Characters appearing in:

     A New World, A New Way 


The Gym Leader of the Shalour City Gym. As Korrina has not appeared in any media other than the game, it is likely that this version of her is based on her game counterpart. She seems (at first) to have the strongest want to go back to being human, and shows noticeable disgust towards Gene and Belle's relationship (though to be fair, she's getting better), which makes it even more awkward since her own Lucario had been harboring feelings for her. Her Pokemon form is Lucario.

Professor Juniper

The regional Pokemon Professor of the Unova Region. She is a close friend of Belle and Gene, as she is one of the people who knew about their relationship, yet did not find it disgusting. Amongst the humans, she more or less maintains a neutral position as while she would like to go back to being human, she doesn't really mind being a Pokemon either. As a Pokemon Researcher, she simply loves sharing her knowledge of Pokemon, and has gained an interest of understanding Equestria as well. A fact that allows her to get along quite well with Princess Twilight Sparkle. Her Pokemon form is Beheeyem.


The Gym Leader of the Cerulean City Gym. This version of Misty seems to be based strongly off of her anime version, based on the fact that she has a Togepi which she cares for like a mother (in the anime, Misty gained a Togepi that imprinted on her, thinking she was her mother). Amongst the humans, she also wants to go back to being human, but is a bit less adamant about it than Korrina. Her Pokemon form is Vaporeon.


A trainer from the Hoenn region, likely from Petalburg City. Based on what little has been seen so far, this version of May is likely based on her anime counterpart, due to her Blaziken, which in the anime, was her starter Pokemon. She is noticeably uncomfortable about her situation, but seems to be coping well enough thanks to Blaziken's help, though their relationship has gotten a little awkward due to Blaziken developing a Bodyguard Crush on her. Her Pokemon form is Delphox.

  • Bodyguard Crush: Her Blaziken has one for her, which makes their relationship rather awkward, since she seems to have some feelings for him as well, but she seems unwilling to admit them, likely due to the laws banning Interspecies Romance that were present back on Earth.
  • Playing with Fire: She's able to do this, which she and Blaziken used to drive away an Aggron from Trottingham.


The gym leader of the Violet City Gym. This version of Falkner is likely based on his anime counterpart, due to the Pidgeot he owned before being transported to Equestria (his Pidgeot is more iconic in the anime than the game), though he could also be based on the game version, since he also has a Pidgeot in the games. Surprisingly, he is one of the humans who prefers being a Pokemon rather than a human, mostly due to him liking his new ability to fly. Also, despite being a Gym Leader who is officially supposed to follow the law and be opposed to crimes (such as Pokephilia), he is currently in a relationship with his Pidgeot. His Pokemon form is Pidgeot.

Korrina's Lucario

A male Lucario that belonged to Korrina. Based on what has been seen so far, this is the same Lucario that Korrina retains after giving one of her Lucario to the player character in the game. Lucario is loyal and faithful to Korrina, choosing to stick with her even though she's technically not his trainer anymore, going so far as to putting Korrina's wish of becoming human again ahead of his own wish of being with her

Misty's Togepi

A female Togepi that belonged to Misty. This Togepi is likely based on the one from the anime, and like the anime, Misty cares for her like a mother caring for her child.

May's Blaziken

A male Blaziken that belonged to May. It is likely that he is, or is based on the Blaziken from the anime, as the anime version of May chose a Torchick as her starter. Blaziken cares a lot about May, working hard to help her control her new abilities, as well as being very protective of her. Along the way, Blaziken seems to have developed feelings for May, which she seems to return to a lesser extent, albeit VERY reluctantly.

Falkner's Pidgeot

A female Pidgeot that belonged to Falkner. She and Falkner have been partners (the trainer-Pokemon kind) for a very long time, even suggesting that she may have been his starter Pokemon. Because of this, she and Falkner are now in a relationship, as the old laws of Earth no longer apply. It is likely that she is based off of the anime version, as Falkner's Pidgeot in the game is male.


Lunick's Minun


Solana's Plusle

Professor Hastings

  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: The fact that Arceus brought him to Equis would make him this. So far his actions come off more as "not evil enough to be left behind".
  • Knight Templar: If he thinks someone is a criminal, then pissing off the rulers of Equestria for that single person is worth it.
  • Noble Bigot with a Badge: He might genuinely want to protect Pokemon. To him, that doesn't mean they get a say in it.

[[folder: Pokemon, A 'New' Frontier]]Pokemon

Viridian City Nurse Joy

The Nurse Joy in charge of the Pokemon Center in Viridian City, Kanto.

[[folder: A Brave New World]]Pokemon


The Gym Leader of Nimbasa City, and an old friend of Seth's. She seems to have feelings for Seth, though he seems to be oblivious to it. She's relatively neutral about being a Pokemon, though she's leaning more to wanting to go back to being human. Her Pokemon form is Flaffy.

Nimbasa City Nurse Joy

The Nurse Joy in charge of the Pokemon Center in Nimbasa City, Unova.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Downplayed - she seems to be misguided and prejudiced rather than an outright jerk - but Seth is not fooled by her attempt at concealing her disgust at his (false) reputation for Pokephilia, nor by the lies she and apparently other nurses have fed him so that they can inspect his Pokemon for signs of "abuse".

My Little Pony

Apple Fritter

A member of the Apple Family, and as such, Applejack's cousin.
