Elliot Daniels
FC: Shizuo Heiwajima of Durarara!!

The illegitimate first child of Oliver Courtwater, and thus Lucas Courtwater's half brother. His mother vanished under mysterious circumstances when he was a child, and he was raised by a small squad of godmothers. A bartender, security guard, and professional battler all in one. He has recently left for Hoenn, following a possible lead on his mother's whereabouts.

Dorothy Burton
FC: Eclair Tonnerre of Ouran High School Host Club

Jerry's cousin and the daughter of Jared Burton, a highly intelligent and beautiful young woman who became somewhat deslusional following childhood trauma. The apparent antagonist in Jerry and Lucas' plot.

An Interpol agent based in Saffron, currently heading a controversial task force.

Jared Burton
FC: Claire Stanfield of Baccano!

Jerry's criminally insane uncle, an expert on psychic pokemon and a former League professor whose title was stripped from him following unsanctioned research practices and other suspicious behavior.

Oliver Courtwater
FC: November 11 of Darker Than Black

Regina Courtwater
FC: Olivier Armstrong of Fullmetal Alchemist

The heiress to the Saughtterly Enterprises fortune - a Pokemon League special investigator and Lucas Courtwater's mother.


Grovyle (Ryusuke's)

  • Above Good and Evil: Ultimately, his motivation for most things. If he knows someone involved in a mess, chances are he'll step in; otherwise he tends to ignore things unless they personally interest him.
  • The Ace: As a Treecko he was Ryusuke's best and most skilled fighter, and that hasn't changed much.
  • Angst? What Angst?: Subverted. On evolving he was understandably freaked out by the sudden change, and while he seemingly got over it rather quickly much of that is an act while he tries to focus on the positives or a rather permanent change.
  • Bash Brothers: Once again, with Ryusuke, although this tends to rotate between him, Charmeleon and a handful of others.
  • Blatant Lies: Not above them.
  • Challenge Seeker: As of his evolution, in an effort to focus on the positives rather than the negatives.
  • Thunderpunch: One of Grovyle's most used moves before evolving.
  • Gut Feeling: Typically what Grovyle follows. Most of the time it pays off.
  • Heroic Bastard: His egg was obtained from a breeder. While he has met his brother, so far Grovyle has had yet to meet either of his parents.


Akemi Kawa
FC: Levy McGarden of Fairy Tail

Elinda Aspen
FC: Fate Testarossa of Lyrical Nanoha

A veteran Trainer of thirty odd years, Elinda (or Ellie for short) hails from a small foreign region. One of the founders and former Commanders of the region's dominant Team after spending decades traveling, the woman had fled the region along with her niece and remaining family to start anew in one of the larger, better known regions.

  • Confusion Fu: Adept at it, though not necessarily just in battle.
  • Creepy Good: Stalkerish tendencies.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: On the surface, Elinda is a goofy, possibly crazy, woman who likes to shove her nose where it doesn't belong. The moment she is crossed, though, Elinda reveals she can be manipulative, strategic, and extremely intimidating when she wants to be.
  • Genius Bruiser: Describes most of her Pokemon.
  • Genius Ditz: She has many, many quirks that could easily qualify her as a Cloudcuckoolander. She also used to a professional battler for Devon Corp, having only stopped for reasons yet to be explained.
  • I Reject Your Reality: Played for laughs.
  • Mama Bear: Do NOT mess with her family.

Jason Royde
FC: Helmod of Shutsugeki! Machine Robo Rescue

Ramona Albarn
FC: Medaka Kurokami of Medaka Box''

Richelle "Ricki" Jace
FC: Kido Tsubomi of Kagerou Project

A run away gangster at the age of eighteen-years-old, Richelle “Ricki” Jace has been a massive handful for her single mother most of her life. Managing to anger a terrorist organization and then stealing information from them, Ricki has left nothing but trouble in her wake. Despite being just nineteen-years-old, Ricki already has been divorced, watched groups of men die, and seems to be a magnet for jerks and perverts. With such terrible luck and a rough history behind her, the skillful trainer has finally begun her quest down the road to a better life.

Ryusuke Ugumi
FC: Edward Elric of Fullmetal Alchemist

The son of Elinda Aspen and Taichi Ugumi, Ryusuke is one of the more recent additions to a long line of Trainers and Breeders. Only recently having shed his greenhorn status thanks to a broad knowledge base and months of experience after leaving Lilycove, his defining feature would likely be his Jerkass attitude.

  • Blessed with Suck: His prosthetics. Rehab and surgery was not fun, and he can't swim anymore thanks to the weight, but may some higher power help you if you get stuck in a fist fight with him.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Typically prefers to ignore trouble unless it becomes impossible to avoid, or someone forces him to deal with it.

William Rosenbach
FC: Tokugawa Ieyasu of Sengoku Basara

Zernebog Romanov
FC: Gekigami of Ōkami


Altair Stavros
FC: Gilgamesh of Fate/Zero



Etta Rassul
FC: Rukia Kuchiki of Bleach

A Tynntill Town trainer turned paranormal investigator for the wealthy and resourceful, with a knack for spotting hoaxes the moment she arrives on-scene. While she initially appears to be The Stoic, she's actually very outgoing and playful when engaged. Currently she's made it back to Tynntill in search of missing best friend, Mimi.

Jason Tham

More often than not the random guy seen hanging out in the back of most groups, although possibly deliberate on his part. The Nice Guy of most groups, not much is known of his past.

Jeremiah Burton
FC: Lavi of D.Gray-Man

Lucas Courtwater
FC: Tamaki Suoh of Ouran High School Host Club

A cheerful young man born into old money and big business in Saffron City, he moves abruptly to Orre for reasons that are vague at best and proceeds to unwittingly become entangled in everyone else's problems. Despite a prevailing sunny disposition, it seems like the unfinished business he left in Saffron is about to follow him abroad.

FC: Kotobuki Tsumugi of K-On! and Koumi Haruka of Rail Wars!

Rikkan Aurelia
FC: Calintz Jerevinan of Magna Carta

A Pokemon Ranger based in Orre.

Miguel Hidalgo
FC: Gilbert Nightray of PandoraHearts
Le Capuchon FC: Taskmaster of Taskmaster

  • Asshole Victim: The thugs he targets are no saints, but Le Claire and most of his underlings take the cake.
  • Aura Vision: One of the things he can do with Aura.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He got the Dark Gym Leader (Gym Co-Leader before the Nue update) position for a reason
  • Bastard Understudy: Formerly to the Hidalgo family. Officially he was one to Eduardo, but in practice he was one to Don Felix. Not that it matters since he betrays the entire family anyway.
  • Battle Couple: Often mistaken to be part of one with Miyu.
  • Benevolent Boss: Despite being evil and a pervert, he is this to his employees. This is because he knows the merits of loyalty.
  • Bishounen: A fact that he often takes advantage of.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Underneath that nice, eccentric businessman facade is a ruthless killer and manipulator.
  • The Casanova: Something he is notorious for and is unashamed of.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: One of his favorite expressions.
  • Chivalrous Pervert
  • Circus Brat: He was one from birth until his late teen years. He still exhibits the skills he'd learned from his circus days and hasn't lost his touch, but very few people know this.
  • Complexity Addiction: He really loves making complex plans because it's more fun.
  • Con Man: He's been this since he was forced to live on the streets and has just escalated the stakes and rewards.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: The Hidalgos were this when they were alive, with Miguel keeping up the tradition of his predecessors.
  • Cry for the Devil: After everything that he's been through, it's hard not to.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: People think that the murder of his immediate family is this, but that's only a small part of the story. Most of it he keeps buried and unknown to the world, and he'd like to keep it that way.
  • Dark Is Evil: He pretends to be Dark is Not Evil, but in truth he is. Very much so.
  • Evil Is Sexy
  • Evil Laugh: Has one and practices it.
  • Evil Orphan: To the Hidalgos even though he was adopted as an adult.
  • Faux Affably Evil
  • Five-Finger Discount: He used to do it back when he was on the streets, and sometimes even now just for fun.
  • Friends with Benefits: The current relationship between Miguel and Miyu
  • In Love with Your Carnage: One of the reasons why he likes Miyu so much and keeps her around.
  • Large Ham: That's what happens when you're raised in a circus and love it.
  • Le Parkour
  • Living Lie Detector: He's been trained by his master to spot lies by sensing and/or viewing someone's Aura. He's also taught himself on how to read most of a person's more obvious tells when lying.
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: Became this after being adopted by the Hidalgo family
  • Master of the Mixed Message - To the point that everyone thinks that he's a couple with Miyu when she's just his friend and secretary. Being Friends with Benefits with her and her encouraging the misconception doesn't help.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • Multilayer Façade: In the literal sense.
  • Nice Hat
  • Nightmare Fetishist: He openly likes morbid topics like death, torture, and blood. It's somewhat stereotypical of a Dark Gym Leader so he doesn't get much strange stares for it. However, he does hide the fact that he finds it hot when a beautiful woman murders and tortures people as well.
  • Official Couple: With Miyu Sergius, by Word of God(s)
  • Outlaw Couple: With Miyu (again)
  • Parental Abandonment: Not only his parents, but his parental substitutes Le Claire and Anderson too!
  • Parental Substitute: Initially Le Claire after the death of his entire family, but after learning of the truth about his actions it shifted to Michael Anderson, his mentor. Miguel lets people think that Don Felix was this, but he isn't.
  • Percussive Pickpocket: One of his methods for pickpocketing, though he prefers less obvious methods nowadays.
  • Pyromaniac
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: He went on one after finding out that Le Claire arranged the deaths of his family and the destruction of the circus he used to live in. This resulted in him murdering Le Claire and burning down the man's circus and all the people in it like the man had to his own years ago.
  • Scarily Competent Tracker: A product of his Aura abilities and training under Master Anderson.
  • Secret Identity: Grim/Le Capuchon. The name Miguel Hidalgo is technically another false identity since his real one, Francisco Colleano, has been declared dead for years.
  • Sensor Character: He is this through the use of Aura.
  • Serial Killer: He develops into this after his first kill.
  • Smoking Is Cool: The main reason he actually smokes is to make himself look cool and sophisticated in order to complete his image.
  • Sympathetic Murderer: It's hard not to feel sorry for him after everything he's been through, but he's still a murderer through and through.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome
  • Troubled, but Cute
  • Villain with Good Publicity: What he is aiming for.
  • Wicked Cultured
  • Yandere: Surprisingly, he is one for Miyu though it rarely ever rears its head.
  • You Killed My Father: Miguel to Le Claire, though it was both his parents and not just his dad.

    Archived and Dropped Characters 

Chelsea Hasan
FC: Eru Chitanda of Hyouka

  • Cloudcuckoolander
  • The Fashionista
  • Genki Girl: Energetic? Check. Confident and determined? Check. Exhausts, astonishes, and occasionally creeps out her friends and family? Uh, yes.
  • Shipper on Deck
  • Yandere: In the IC, at least. Loses it a little after finding out that her arranged marriage was a prank orchestrated by Sable.

Danielle "Dani" Albarn
FC: Trucy Wright of Ace Attorney

Faline Farris
FC: Takane Shijou of The Idolmaster

Hemlock Walters
FC: Minatsuki Takami of Deadman Wonderland

Irene Dayhardt
FC: Namie Yagiri of Durarara!!

Lorraine "Rain" Hasan
FC: Mio Akiyama of K-On!

Lorraine “Rain” Hasan was born and raised with the high expectations of becoming a world famous coordinator. But with her mother’s strict nature, constant lectures, and failing to win most of the contests she entered, Rain’s confidence was shot and her nerves were in a constantly rattled state. It wasn't up until recently did she finally snap under the pressure and run away from home and her career to begin her real dream of becoming a Pokémon Trainer.

Maelstrom Marone

At first glance, he may seem like nothing special, this 17 year old who is short for his age, but beneath the facade is a skilled tactical trainer whose aim is nothing short of champion of the Pokemon League. He employs various Pokemon trained to fight with a logical edge, but often falls short when the odds are stacked against him. Maelys has little memory of his mother, who disappeared when he was young, and his father works undercover, leaving him mostly to his own devices. Though he rarely gets a chance to show it, Mae does know self-defense, namely a method of using the opponents weight against them.

Murdoc "Ducky" Nikter
FC: Maes Hughes of Fullmetal Alchemist

Piper O'Leary
FC: Roromiya Karuta of Inu × Boku SS

A teenager from Sinnoh who has recently opened a Pokemon adoption agency and catching service in Orre. She specializes in rescuing wild Pokemon from urban areas, and has dreams of one day meeting a Legendary.

FC: Michiko Malandro of Michiko & Hatchin

Shiori Ugumi
FC: Oda Nobuna of The Ambition of Oda Nobuna

Stellar Aurelia
FC: Taiwan of Axis Power Hetalia

A war veteran trainer hailing from an unknown region, the 24-year-old woman has now settled to travel around the peaceful regions as a retirement of sorts. She's a cheery, kind person, though be careful not to get on her bad side; while she has vowed to never kill again unless necessary; her war ridden past has made her restraints loose and shaky.

  • Alternate Continuity : As of the revival of the roleplay she was originally from, Stellar's current future have diverged into an alternate continuity.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Applies to her and mostly her team, especially the ones that had survived with her through the war.
  • Child Soldiers: This was her, once upon a time.
  • Combat Pragmatist: She have been this before, and if the stakes are high enough, Stellar wouldn't mind doing anything.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She's reluctant to tell people about her past, for a good reason.
  • Genius Bruiser: Her Aggron fits this the most, though the steel type is also a Gentle Giant.
  • Necessary Fail: She argued with her father, and stormed out of the house in a fit of childish stubbornness and fury. Stellar regrets it, but without it, she would never have been involved in the war, which taught her good and bad things. Without the war, she would never have a reason to move to these regions.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Sometimes, enemies must stay down. Stellar knows. Her team knows, without their trainer's command.
  • Weak, but Skilled: She might not look much, but don't piss her off in any way. She only barely reins in her battlelust, which was tempered into bloodlust thanks to the environment she was raised in.
