Protagonists and Rival

    Viol & Keksandra 
The protagonists of the game. Viol (male) is down-to-earth and competitive, while Keksandra (female)... isn't. The character you don't pick will become your secondary rival throughout the game.
  • Bilingual Bonus: The name Viol in French translates to rape.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Keksandra, as the rival. She speaks almost entirely in memes, doesn't really care about her journey, and seems very detached from reality.
  • Expy: Viol and Keksandra are based off of 4chan-tans for /vp/ and [s4s].
  • Nice Guy: Both of them are relatively friendly people, even the competitive Viol.
  • Skirt over Slacks: Keksandra's official artwork has her wearing black shorts underneath her dress.
  • Spirited Competitor: Viol. He even quotes Smogon from time to time.

Your primary rival. Edgie is a parody of edgelord characters, and mostly cares about being powerful.

Pokémon Professor

    Professor Stump 
The Pokémon Professor native to the Fochun region.
  • Expy: To Frank Reynolds of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Stump shares his looks, his lab theme is the theme song to IASIP, and his pre-fight dialogue is also from the show.
    Stump: I'm a wild animal, I'M THE TRASHMAN!
  • Handicapped Badass: In spite of his leg stump and an extent of eyesight problem, he's able to give a challenging battle to the protagonist.
  • Hand Wave: He excuses the need to ask your gender as being "fuckin' blind".
  • Hidden Depths: He seems like a crusty old man. But he's an accomplished trainer, and genuinely enjoys seeing you grow to become an impressive trainer yourself.
  • Meaningful Name: "Stump", as in not only his pegleg, but the rooted remains of a chopped-down tree, tying in to the Theme Naming of other Pokémon professors.
  • Secret Keeper: Specifically, he knows that your mother is the champion of the Fochun region.


Gym Leaders

Gadech City Gym Leader—The Rock-Solid Pokémon Trainer!

The same Gym Leader from the original game. You can skip him, but he will not take kindly to that decision.

  • Berserk Button: He does not like to be skipped over. If you do, he will double down with a team of six with levels comparable to the last Gym Leader's.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Just like in the Kanto games, he specializes in Rock-types.
  • Not His Sledinvoked: When you speak to him after your battle with him, he'll mention that you'll need to fight Tumblrita next, and not Misty.
  • Sequence Breaking: It is possible to skip Brock's gym, but doing so will have him change his team as payback.
  • Signature Mon: Chompest, regardless of when you fight him.
  • Years Too Early: Like in Fire Red, there is a trainer that tells you that you're light years away from beating Brock, only that it can be taken in a literal manner; there is a teleporter that brings you light years into spece, where Brock resides on some meteor.

Actuvit City Gym Leader—The warrior of social justice!
  • Expy: Tumblrita looks similar to Misty, with the only different being having highlights at the end of her hair and wearing a different type of shorts.
  • Making a Splash: Like her original counterpart, she uses Water-type Pokémon. Her sole exception is her Caroline, which is likely used because the species are exclusively female.
  • Official Couple: With Polk, as revealed the next time you meet her in the Inawoods Lodge.
  • The Smurfette Principle: She is the only Gym Leader who is female.
  • Sore Loser: Similar to Whitney, she does not take losing well, and you will need to talk to her to get your badge.
  • Signature Mon: Sjwhale.
  • Straw Feminist: She's based on the stereotypical Tumblr feminist, who hates men and constantly accuses anyone who even looks at her of being a rapist.

Triport City Gym Leader—d035n'7 f0r61v3, d035n'7 f0r637 Translation: 

Animango City Gym Leader—The sky-high Pokémon Trainer!

Beehive City Gym Leader—The killer Queen!

Esfores City Gym Leader—le dying ebola man

Outcast Island Gym Leader—The jet-fueled hothead!
  • Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: In his rematch, he has his Fire-type Finasoven, and Water-type Florigrace (which he uses because of Tumblrita's influence). His third Pokémon is the Water- and Fire-type Gynuke.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: During his Nazi rally, he claims that Jews are aliens, and are promotion relations between black people and white people, so they can make gray people.
  • Freudian Excuse: He was supposedly kicked out of his hometown by Tumblrita.
  • Graceful Loser: He gives the player no qualms after they defeat him in a battle, and hands them the Aryan Badge without complaint.
  • Noble Bigot with a Badge: Literally. He'll still give you a Badge after you beat him, even if you aren't Aryan.
  • Official Couple: Having a Florigrace as adviced by his GF implies that she has to be a Water- or Grass-type trainer. Your next encounter with him in Innawoods Lodge confirms that he is with Tumblrita.
  • Pet the Dog: He uses a Florigrace (a Water/Grass type) in his Gym, because his girlfriend has been encouraging him to accept other ethnic groups.
  • Playing with Fire: Specializes in Fire-types.
  • Rescue Arc: To fight Polk, you will need to free the Jews that he captured in his gym.
  • Signature Mon: Finasoven.
  • Those Wacky Nazis: His ace Pokemon is based on a gas chamber, enough said.

    Last Gym Leader (SPOILERS!) 
Vitlya City Gym Leader

Darude himself. He is responsible for the Gym Leader Battle theme, which is his famous Sandstorm. Like Giovanni, he appears after fighting the previous Gym Leaders.

Elite Four and Champion

The first member of the Fochun League Elite Four.

The second member of the Fochun League Elite Four, based on the killer starred in The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon.

The third member of the Fochun League Elite Four, based on Big Man Tyrone.

    Saxton Hale 
The final member of the Fochun League Elite Four, based on Saxton Hale from Team Fortress 2.

    Champion (SPOILERS) 

Your mother. After you battle any trainer or wild Pokémon, you can go to her to heal off any damage your Pokémon may received. However, after you win against the Elite Four, your mom will challenge you as the Champion of the Fochun Region.

Team Karma



    Lil' Bro 

    Boss (SPOILERS) 
Kymmi is the leader of Team Karma. You first meet her early in the game on the Useless Bridge and the Pokémon Fan Club.
