- Abusive Parents: His father was not only a criminal, but he was also an alcoholic with his mother being a shut-in. While it was never stated what his father actually did, it may probably be for the best.
- Beware the Nice Ones: He may have the biggest heart in this game, but certain things could set him off. Particularly Seymour and surprisingly, Samson, for the thought that Samson had stolen Gareth's net.
- Black and White Morality: Downplayed as it didn't show up, but he strongly disliked criminals. Because of this, he is one of Seymour's biggest enemies and was terrified of Samson when hearing about his delinquent friends. Though he gets over this when he actually meets them.
- Big Fun: Well, he is big in terms of size, not girth, but otherwise this trope plays straight with his boisterous yet friendly personality.
- The Big Guy: He is the largest person in the cast.
- Big Guy, Little Guy: The big guy with Gareth's little guy.
- Dude Magnet: He winds up gaining the affections of Samson and Logan over the course of the season.
- Gentle Giant: He's noted to be a very large man, but he's a big lovable lug.
- Hidden Depths: He's a phenomenal singer. He reveals he really only sings when he's in a sad mood.
- Large Ham: Can come off as this due to his lack of volume control.
- Love Triangle: He is in one where Samson and Logan have a crush on him and he is none the wiser.
- Making a Splash: He is a Water-type trainer. Yeah, 'Nuff said.
- Nice Guy: His heart is bigger than he is.

Yuri-Chan is a Fairy-type trainer from Ecruteak City, Johto. Her starter Pokémon is a Snubbull. Her final team is a Granbull, a Togekiss and an Azumarill.

- All of the Other Reindeer: She is picked on by the other Kimono Girls and purposefully kept with them just to make themselves feel better.
- Beware the Nice Ones: She became so determined to win the Kimono Challenge, that she had subdued and threatened Marta, who tried to sneak up on her to purposefully get her to throw her away. And she was absolutely furious at Logan for winning said Challenge that she worked so hard on.
- After so much pent-up angry about being harassed by the Kimono Girls, she had finally called them out for their horrible behavior and even criticizes some of their flaws at their job.
- Break the Cutie: She used to be a happy child. But then, the Kimono Girls and their teacher had cruelly bullied her.
- Cute Bruiser: Despite her fragility in appearance and personality, she is a skilled Aikido master and flips anyone who sneaks up on her over her shoulder.
- The Fair Folk: She is a Fairy-type Pokémon. She wants to be a Kimono Girl just like her mother, particularly a Fairy-type Pokémon.
- Formerly Fat: She used to be quite the large girl before attempting to become a Kimono Girl. However, the school's harsh training had slimmed her down.
- Freudian Excuse: Being treated so horribly by the other Kimono Girls led to her anxiety issues.
- Grew a Spine: She had finally told off the Kimono Girls who had horribly bullied her.
- Guile Hero: She had been noticeably been cutthroat since the second half of the story, begging everyone to let RISE as her partner for the Elite 4. At first, she seemed like she was overly forgiving and wanted to give her another chance. Turns out, she just wanted to use her element to her example.
- Hard Work Hardly Works: She had spent a good chunk of the Kimono Challenge trying to win so she could get an Eevee and even get the respect of the Kimono Girls. However, she had lost to Logan and this created a wedge between their friendship.
- Honor Before Reason: She wouldn't join in the fight against Rise because of the said battleground in on holy grounds. Sweetie, your opponent is tearing off the tower, trying to hypnotize a Legendary Pokémon and is a deeply-religious person herself and yet she is joining in the fight.
- Lovable Coward: Most of the time she is either screaming, running or crying, but is otherwise a cutie.
- Nice Girl: The poor girl would never hurt a fly. Most likely because she had startled them.
- Older Than They Look: She is fifteen, though she had been mistaken for younger a couple of times. She is NOT happy about it.

Simun is a Flying-type trainer from Castelia City, Unova. His starter Pokémon is a Swablu. His final team is an Altaria, a Golbat and a Gyarados.
- Alliterative Name: Simun Sun.
- Beware the Silly Ones: He's a joker who constantly makes fun of himself, but he's far more competent as a trainer than that description would lead you to expect.
- Blow You Away: He is a Flying-type trainer. While he doesn't seem like it, he is quite strategic and knows that the Flying-type is usually accompanied by a second-typing.
- Brutal Honesty: After watching his girlfriend, Marta get injured, he has no qualms trying people how he felt without a joking tone to it.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Averted. He is the only one in the final Seven who DOESN'T have a tragic one. Because of this, he believes that he doesn't deserve to win and attempts to throw his Elimination match against Samson. Keyword being attempt.
- Distressed Dude: He, along with Vecepia had gotten kidnapped by Seymour and the Dark Riders until they were rescued by their fellow contestants.
- Everyone Has Standards: Simun might love bugging people, but once he realizes how low Seymour is willing to sink, he refuses to associate with him any further.

- The Gadfly: He loves getting under people's skin and watching their reactions.

Logan is a Grass-type trainer from Nimbasa City, Unova. His starter Pokémon is a Foongus. His final team is an Amoonguss, a Meganium, and a Leafeon.
- Berserk Button: Marta. She's the only person that has managed to make him lose his temper thus far. Justified because she is actually his sister and he blames her for what happened to their mother.
- Chick Magnet: As expected from a handsome boy band member, he has a lot of female fans. And even a few male fans as well.
- Famed In-Story: He is a popular pop boy band sensation in-universe.
- Gayngst: He is gay and has trouble coping with it. This gets especially bad when he develops feelings for Monty.
- Green Thumb: He is a Grass-type trainer. Not surprising as he is a Nature Lover.
- Grew a Spine: It is stated that Logan has always done what his manager told him to do, but it wasn't until late in the season where we see how much of a controlling Jerkass the aforementioned manager was. When belittling him and trying to take him back, Logan said he had enough and he, along with everyone else (even Chris) yelling at him to back off.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: Part of the reason why he came on the show. However, he seems to have a large time fitting in.

Samson is a Dark-type trainer from Nimbasa City, Unova. His starter Pokémon is a Poochyena. His final team is a Poochyena, a Scrafty and a Cacturne. Though Word of God confirms that Samson's "Poochyena" is a Zorua, which later evolved into Zoroark.
- Bad Liar: When he tries to hide the fact that his starter Pokémon is a Zorua. But he does this so poorly, one-by-one, people were realizing the truth.
- Combat Pragmatist: He is a Dark-type trainer. Mainly because his friends back home are all Dark-types trainers themselves and got him into it as well.
- Dark Is Not Evil: He's a Dark-type trainer, but he's completely harmless.
- Delinquents: Not him, but his friends back home, who are implied to be a gang of troublemakers who are willing to "take care" of anyone who picks on him.
- Everyone Knew Already: When he was confused why Marta upfront said he had a Zorua, everyone decided enough was enough and told him they already knew in different reactions.
- Freaky Fashion, Mild Mind: He dresses like a textbook punk but he is actually one of the nicest people in the cast.
- Grew a Spine: After being Seymour's Chew Toy, he had finally started to stick up to him and even eliminated him in an Elimination Battle.
- Horrible Judge of Character: He really shouldn't have tried to become friends with Seymour.
- Love Triangle: He is in one where he and Logan have a crush on Monty.
- Morality Pet: He seems to be this to his friends back home. He casually mentions them committing not-entirely-legal actions, but notes that they're always nice to him and protect him.

- Pay Evil unto Evil: He and his friends are a group of vigilantes who fight criminals on a regular basis.
- Pyrrhic Victory: He had won the Bug-Catching Challenge. However, he did it with a bug-catching net Seymour stole from Vecepia which she gave to Gareth. So, he is made out to be a cheater by Monty, straining their friendship. And in an act of revenge, Gareth stole his Everstone for his elimination battle with Cassandra.
- Shrinking Violet: Not as much as Yuri-Chan but he is definitely timid.
Twelfth/Thirteenth out. 6/7th place. Lost to Monty and Samson in Episode 14 alongside Yvonne in a double elimination battle.
Ferrum is a Steel-type Trainer from Anistar City, Kalos. Her starter Pokémon is a Honedge. Her final team is an Aegislash, a Forretress and a Skarmory.
- Adorkable: Due to her over-the-top and strict personality, she could be seen as this. Especially when trying to be fun.
- Awesome Mc Coolname: Don't even try to deny it.
- Badass Gay: A tough, noble knight who also happens to be a lesbian.
- Break the Cutie: During multiple points in the story, she has confused and called many other females for Yvonne, the other girl in the program Ferrum attends. When asked by the other girls why she does this, she breaks down admitting Yvonne's been gone for a year and she keeps hoping when she sees the supposed Yvonne, it's really her. You know it's bad when the usual over-the-top Ferrum becomes filled with despair. Turns out later in the story, Keira, Ferrum's great friend, IS Yvonne.
- Extra-ore-dinary: She is a Steel-type trainer as she is working under Wikstrom's training program, an Elite Four Steel-Type member.
- For Great Justice: No matter the time or place, she's always seeking to bring justice to the land!
- Insult Backfire: When insulted (usually by Seymour), she goes on a long-winding speech on how her knight training had proved the opposite before walking away pleased that she had invoked this trope when in reality, she just bewildered said taunter into silence.
- Knight in Shining Armor: From her outfit to her ideals to her name to even her surname, she is this. For bonus points, her starter is Honedge.
- Large Ham: Very much so. This turns out to be a huge advantage for her in the Radio Station challenge since she makes everything sound incredibly interesting.
- Official Couple: With Yvonne.
- Two Girls to a Team: Is one of the two only girls in Wikstrom's training program, besides another girl named Yvonne. Turns out, this is important information as not only was Yvonne supposedly missing for a year, she was also Keira.
- Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: Talks like this.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
Keira Yvonne Nguyen
Twelfth/Thirteenth out. 6/7th place. Lost to Monty and Samson in Episode 14 alongside Ferrum in a double elimination battle.
Keira or rather, Yvonne is a Ghost-type trainer from Hearthome City, Sinnoh. Her starter Pokémon is a Spiritomb. Her final is a Spiritomb and a Dusknoir.
- Brainwashed: At first, it seemed like she was the Big Bad, but it turns that she was another brainwashed pawn. Not only that, but she was Yvonne, Ferrum's close friend all of these years.
- Cool Shades: Her big dark glasses.
- Extreme Doormat: She unquestioningly takes any order that anyone gives her. This leaves quite a few of her fellow competitors concerned.
- Lipstick Lesbian: A prim and proper maid that develops romantic feelings for Ferrum. Or actually Ferrum's teammate, Yvonne, this whole time that had already developed feelings for Ferrum.
- Literal-Minded: She takes her job as a maid so seriously that when Vecepia had asked her to wait outside a store, she does exactly that. While standing in the middle of the sidewalk.
- Meido: She is a very diligent maid.
- Neat Freak: As expected from someone who takes her job as a cleaner seriously, she's constantly cleaning any stains and messes she sees.
- An interesting variation. Yvonne is not this, but even after being freed from brainwashing, that aspect of Keira had stuck with her.
- Nice Girl: She is respectable to everyone and is more than willing to complete their requests, even if it is Francis.
- Official Couple: With Ferrum.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: When Seymour and Simun were speaking out everyone's embarrassing secrets, she broke into tears (though more for the humiliation of her master than herself) and when Ferrum calmly told her to go back to her booth, Keira refused and asked Ferrum to stay with her.
- Then again, considering that she is actually Yvonne, this was never really her true personality.
- After being rescued by the Unown and being called out by Simun, she snaps out in a furious fashion that indicates that she had been holding it in all of this time.
- Soul Power: She is a Ghost-type trainer. Mainly so her Pokémon could look out for her and try to stop her from overworking through the night.
- Workaholic: Takes her job so passionately that she rarely sleeps which results in constant headaches and sometimes even passing out.
Eleventh out. 8th place. Lost to Marta in Episode 5. Returned in Episode 7. Lost to Ferrum in Episode 13.
Vecepia is a Fighting-type trainer from Undella City, Unova. Her starter Pokémon is a Pancham. Her final team is a Pongoro.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: She is a Fighting-type Pokémon. Because she is naïve and innocent, she needed bodyguards to protect her and using Fighting Pokémon may the best bodyguards.
- Bribing Your Way to Victory: Her dad pays off Chris to let her return to the game after her elimination.
- Her dad tries to do this again the second time she had gotten eliminated, but Vecepia called him out and stated that despite him buying all of the expensive stuff for her, all she ever wanted was to spend time with him.
- Butt-Monkey: Every episode save for Episode 5 she is attacked by a Water Pokémon. While the first time is Played for Drama, the rest of said attacks are more light-hearted.
- Distressed Damsel: She, along with Simun had gotten kidnapped by Seymour and the Dark Riders until they were rescued by their fellow contestants.
- Innocently Insensitive: While she doesn't mean to rub it in everyone's faces, she has a tendency to talk about all of the expensive things she has, irking most of the cast. Especially since there is a homeless boy in the cast.
- Meganekko: She wears a rather large pair of glasses.
- Nice Girl: Well, while she has a tendency to annoy the other contestants at the start, especially Gareth, she genuinely doesn't have a mean bone in her body.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Not her directly but after getting eliminated, she returns two episodes later after her father had bribed Chris into letting her back on the show. The other contestants (minus Monty and later Keira)... are not fond of this act.
- Sheltered Aristocrat: She had spent most of her life living a sheltered life so because of this, her comments could come off as... selfish.
- Spoiled Sweet: She is rich to the point of absurdity, but she is genuinely a cheerful and sweet girl.
- Take Me Instead: She intends to pull this when Gareth had became eliminated, mainly knowing that he deserved to be here more than her.
Tenth out. 9th place. Medically evacuated in Episode 12.
Marta is a Psychic-type trainer from Mahogany Town, Johto. Her starter Pokémon is a Natu. Her final team is a Xatu and a Mr. Mime.
- Action Girl: She is always up for a good fight.
- Annoying Older Sibling: Acts like this after she and Logan make up. Though it is extremely light-hearted, especially in comparison to how she had treated him for the first half of the story.
- Berserk Button: She really hates pop stars, which made her be abrasive towards Logan. Even more so then Seymour. Though we eventually find out that it wasn't pop stars she hates, it was Logan in particular as her brother.
- Big Sister Bully: Acts this way for the first half of the season towards Logan due to her blaming him for their mother's death. Fortunately, they made up.
- Blood Knight: Whether it is her doing the punching, watching a fight and even having herself being thrown, she loves a good fight.
- Brutal Honesty: She wastes no time telling Logan how much his music sucks, never mind that he was a famous celebrity or the fact he literally just arrived. Although, it's unknown if Logan being her brother was the reason for her hating his music.
- Dumb Muscle: She's tough and combative, but not the sharpest tool in the shed. However, she was the first one to figure out Samson has a Zorua.
- Head Pet: Her then Natu and current Xatu likes to nest in her hair.
- HeelFace Turn: Not that she's entirely a force a good, but Logan did tell Yuri-Chan that Marta was a former member of Team Plasma.
- Heroic Sacrifice: She had been pulled out of the game after saving everyone from a bomb and getting herself blown up as a result. While she didn't die, she was forced to be medically evacuated out of the game.
- Hidden Depths: While her thinking is simple, to put it mildly, she knows that Samson's starter is actually a Zorua.
- She's also fairly good at battle tactics despite coming off as foolish most of the time. When she was in an elimination battle against Vecepia, she wins in the quickest and easiest battle yet. And unlike Rise's win against Jackson, she doesn't even take advantage of her Natu's type advantage to do it.
- Non-Gameplay Elimination: Was removed from the game after being blown up due to a bomb.
- Official Couple: Eventually becomes this with Simun.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: She's not very big, but she's quite strong and aggressive.
- Psychic Powers: She is a Psychic-type trainer. As ironic as it sounds, she has an interesting ideology behind it. By focusing all of her battle tactics into the pure physical onslaught, Marta believes she always holds the element of surprise closely at her side.
- Right for the Wrong Reasons: During Episode 5, there was a Challenge that involves taking care of Pokémon eggs. She assumed that just like the Slowpokes, they would be fake so she threw her egg into the ocean to see it would break. While she WAS right about the eggs being fake, she had little reason to think so and automatically lost the challenge and was automatically in the Bottom 2.
- Sibling Rivalry: With Logan, with the two of them blaming each other for abandoning their sick mother and leaving her to die.
- Ship Tease: With Simun.
Ninth out. 10th place. Lost to Logan in Episode 11.
Ruth is a Normal-type trainer from Flocessy Ranch, Unova. Her starter Pokémon is a Lillipup. Her final team is a Stoutland.

- Character Development: Over the course of the story, she slowly gets over her sexist views towards women.

- Non-Elemental: She is a Normal-type trainer. Mainly because she had grown up raising Herdier. Also, she believes that having nothing you're strong against makes you fight harder in battle.
- Pink Is for Sissies: She doesn't like stuff she considers girly and tries to avoid bunking with feminine girls.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: During the fight between the contestants and the Dark Riders, she had gotten asked out by one of the enemies. She was genuinely flattered by that.

- Asexuality: He is revealed to be asexual in the loser episode.
- Asshole Victim: Essentially one for Rise, the actual Unown thief. When he gets angered when Simun inadvertently calls him a nerd, Seymour almost chokes the jokester until he is caught by the others. When Simun is asked what happened, he decides to make up Seymour confessing to being the thief. Seymour tries to tell the others this never happened, but it's too late as he's forced into an elimination battle and loses against Samson and is arrested by Officer Nancy.
- Benevolent Boss: He is surprisingly this with the Dark Riders. Despite getting annoyed by their antics, and rightfully so, he genuinely cares about their well-being.
- Berserk Button: Being called a nerd. Gareth took advantage of this.
- Combat Pragmatist: He is very aggressive during challenges and willing to do anything in order to win.
- Dishing Out Dirt: He is a Ground-type trainer. He strongly believes that Ground is one of the stronger attacking types.

- Freudian Excuse: He used to be a normal bookworm who got into a gang. However, the said gang was using him just so he could do their homework. Because of this, he hates being pushed around.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: He is this for the cast. Not even Samson and April want anything to do with him due to his mistreatment of them.
- Genius Bruiser: He looks like your textbook nerd. However, he is much stronger and tougher than he looks.
- Hidden Depths: He is actually quite skilled in mathematics and prefers to hide it behind under his streetwise wit.
- Jerkass: He spends most of his screen-time belittling others.
- Kick the Dog: He had hired thugs to sabotage the other contestants by smashing their Pokémon eggs. Granted, said eggs were fake, but nobody knew that.
- Kick the Morality Pet: April was the only one who was nice to him (though she initially attempted to get with him just to learn his weaknesses and take him down). However, when he learned that she was initially using him (something that she admitted outright, he had thrown the challenge just to face her in the duel and beat her. He even made a cruel comment about her Disappeared Dad status, although it's implied he regrets it.
- Obviously Evil: After he catches heat for his stunt at the Radio Tower, he doesn't even pretend to play fair anymore.
- Pet the Dog: He genuinely cares about his gang, the Dark Riders and even rode with Marta to a hospital out of gratitude for helping him rescue his gang.
- Surrounded by Idiots: Despite the hype revolving around his gang, they... aren't competent as they originally seem.
- Teens Are Monsters: He's the leader of an infamous gang, and he's quite sadistic in his own right.

- Defrosting Ice King: He initially dislikes Vecepia for being super-rich and unwittingly flaunting it around. However, he gives her the benefit of the doubt when he saw her caring for an injured Venonat. He ended up being this way towards Vecepia again when she came back into the game after her father had brought her way back into the game. He ends up forgiving her again though.
- Meaningful Name/Punny Name: Gareth Roach. You know, considering he's the bug-type trainer.

- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Not only is she the thief, but she didn't really have that much confidence with Yuri-Chan just like she said back in the game.

- Hypocrite: Despite her deeply ridiculous views, she has no problem using the Ecruteak Tower, a sacred building as a battleground.
- I Just Want to Have Friends: A dark example of this. After being picked out of her cult, she felt like the Unown were the only ones who could be her friends. However, said friends hypnotized a lot of innocent people.
- Large Ham: Let's just say that she gets very animated during her rituals.
- Nice Girl: She was willing to help Carl in the first challenge even if it meant it harmed her chances of staying. She has also taken a somewhat big sister approach to Yuri-Chan.

- Outside-Context Villain: The bulk of her villainy took place after her elimination and had nothing to do with the competition at all.

- Villainous Breakdown: This happens to her when she had failed to control Ho-Oh (and Yuri-Chan) because the Unown couldn't properly spell their names out. In other words, she lost because there is no dash Unown.
- Walking Spoiler: Yeah, being the surprise villain will do that to you.
- Yamato Nadeshiko: Has this trope pretty clear with her Asian elegant dress and her soft-spoken way of speaking.

Jackson is an Ice-type trainer from Heahea City, Alola. His starter Pokémon is an Alolan Sandshrew. His final team is an Alolan Sandslash.

- Nice Guy: He is chill and friendly to everyone, even Francis who was openly antagonizing him, saying that he wants to see his region burned down. However...

- Odd Friendship: With Francis.
- Politeness Judo: What he does to combat Francis' cruel verbal attacks. Thus far, Jackson had shut him down every time.

Second out. 17th place. Lost to Yuri-Chan in Episode 3.
Francis is a Dragon-type Trainer from Saffron City, Kanto. His starter Pokémon is a Dratini. His final team is a Dragonite.
- Abhorrent Admirer: Towards Cassandra. He fawns over her for being a woman from Kanto, having a Kanto Pokémon, and believes she looks like a Kanto goddess, while she is creeped out by his advances. Turns out this was all for nothing, as Cassandra is technically a Johto native.
- Berserk Button: As expected from a Genwunner, he hates everything after the first generation, especially the Fairy-type and the Alola region.
- The Bully: Acts like this towards Yuri-Chan just because she is a Fairy-Type trainer. Not so much to Jackson, as the latter can handle himself.
- Fat Bastard: He is the only fat person in the cast and he is by far the most unpleasant.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: There is not a single person in the story that liked Francis. Although, he did gain a friend in Jackson after opening up about his dad.
- Freudian Excuse: His father is never around and going off visiting other regions OTHER than Kanto and when his parents divorced, his father didn't even attempt to get custody of him.
- Hate Sink: So far, he only exists to be hated, and has exhibited very few positive characteristics.
- Humiliation Conga: Oh boy. First, he found out that his crush Cassandra technically isn't from Kanto, but actually Johto since she moved. Next, he lost a Pokémon match against Jackson, one of his most hated people. Next, after losing the battle against Jackson, he was suddenly attacked by a Noctowl, three Mareep, five Rattata, two Bellsprout, a Spearow, and six Hoppip. Next, April had decked him in the mud after his long rant after trying to get Cassandra again failed. Finally, Yuri-Chan, his other most hated person sent him home after beating him in an elimination battle.
- Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: He is a Dragon-type trainer as he believes that it is the strongest type.
- Irony: Despite being such a proud Genwunner, he didn't know that Slowpoke is a part of the original 151 until April pointed it out to him.
- Jerkass: Unless you are from Kanto or use Pokémon native to the region, he will not be nice to you. He is especially cruel to Yuri-Chan and Jackson.

- Kick the Dog: Torments Yuri-Chan at any chance he gets.
- Laser-Guided Karma: He loses Pokemon battles to Jackson and Yuri-Chan, the two people who he targeted the most.

- Pet the Dog: He is surprisingly polite and friendly to anyone he believes is from Kanto. Unfortunately, the only person who was from Kanto and has a Kanto-native Pokémon is Cassandra who wants nothing to do with him. In the end, after Cassandra revealed where she really originates from, any chance of him being polite to anyone perished. That is until he opened up to Jackson...
- Politically Incorrect Villain: He had called Jackson a retard and a faggot, and Cassandra a slut after being rejected. This had immediately got him called him out by Marta, Ruth and even Seymour.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Despite thinking himself as the "King of Battlers", his battling record had been quite low. He had lost a battle to Jackson and later an elimination battle to Yuri-Chan. Granted, both people were trainers of types he was weak too. But considering that the Dragon-type has no weaknesses...
- Stay in the Kitchen: He makes a comment about having one of the female contestants to make him a sandwich. While immediately met with uncomfortable reactions, Keira takes this literally and actually gives him a sandwich.
- Villainous Breakdown: Hoo boy... he did not take his loss to Yuri-Chan well at all.
- When You Coming Home, Dad?: Deconstructed. His father's constant trips to other regions resulted in Francis developing a hatred of said regions.

- Dishing Out Dirt: He is a Rock-type trainer because he believes that the Rock type is the strongest type there is. Nothing more, nothing less.
