  • Idiot Hero: Hareta was raised by Pokémon and so much of his behavior is animalistic. For example, when first trying to open Piplup's Pokéball, he bites it. However, his upbringing only explains so much of his behavior. Some of it is apparently genetic.

  • Light Is Not Good: He's named after the sun but is a definite antagonist.
  • Only One Name: Cyrus isn't the only character this applies to, but he is the only one that's inadvertently discussed. Mitsumi says she's not on a first name basis with him after the events of the series, but his surname is never revealed.
  • Parental Substitute: He raised Mitsumi from a young age.



  • Evil Red Head: She's a redheaded antagonist, but she mellows out overtime.
  • Fiery Red Head: While she initially has a cool demeanor the first time she and Hareta and Jun fight each other, save a brief breakdown near the end she recovers from, she's really this deep down, as shown during her attempts to capture Deoxys where she's screaming in defiance at the Pokemon as she throws everything she has into capturing it.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Usually in response to something Hareta does.


  • Berserk Button: Initially Mitsumi's very presence is this, but later it's being called an old lady.

  • Does Not Like Shoes: Maylene doesn't wear shoes.
  • Genius Bruiser: Heavily implied to be this, or at least a rough equivalent.
