    Player Trainer (Scottie/Kei or Bettie/Yui) & Pikachu 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maincharacter.png
Pikachu Voiced By: Ikue Otani
Rating: 3 Stars
Sync Move: Thunder of Newfound Passion
The default character at the start of the game. The game tasks you with customizing their appearance before you team up with Brock and Misty to learn the game. Your partner is a male Pikachu.
  • Can't Drop the Hero: Averted. As soon as you're allowed to edit your team in the tutorial, you can leave the trainer behind and use other characters.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Certain dialogue choices make them this, similar to "Elio" and Selene in the Pokémon Sun and Moon games.
    Barry: I'm fining you $1000!
    You: Okay then. / I'm not paying.
    Barry: Really? Aw.
  • Heroic Mime: The other characters speak for you, though you do get the occasional dialogue option to choose. The trainer doesn't have a voice actor or any spoken dialogue.
  • Hidden Depths: In the "A Day with Roxie" Sync Pair story, should you choose the option, you can reveal to Roxie that you're not too bad at singing heavy metal music.
  • Shock and Awe: Is paired up with Pikachu, an Electric-Type.
  • Signature Mon: Pikachu, the Pokémon franchise mascot.

    Brock & Onix/Tyranitar 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brock_5.png
Dex #2
Voiced By: Tom Bauer (English), Kosuke Toriumi (Japanese)
Rating: 3 Stars
Sync Move: Rock-Solid Rockslide (Onix), Sygnature Rock-Solid Stone Edge (Tyranitar)
The Pewter City gym leader. Brock greets you in the Pokémon center and is the first to join your team as you set out to tackle the Pokémon Masters League. His default partner Pokémon is Onix, but his Sygna Suit outfit pairs him with Tyranitar.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Both Onix and Tyranitar are rock types.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: When you officially enter the PML in the main story, Brock dons his Sygna Suit and switches from Onix to Tyranitar. However, Sygna Suit Brock and regular Brock are treated as separate sync pairs by the game, allowing you to keep using his original kit if you've sunk resources into it.
  • Mythology Gag: When he uses his Sync Move, he rips off his shirt and crosses his arms as his Pokémon does its move, in reference to his original Red/Green/Blue sprite.

    Misty & Starmie 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/misty_4.png
Dex #3
Voiced by: Reba Buhr (English), Ayane Sakura (Japanese)
Rating: 3 stars
Sync Move: Tomboyish Mermaid Bubble Beam
The Cerulean City gym leader, known as the "Tomboyish Mermaid". She's the second character who forms your team, along with Brock, as you set out to challenge the Pokémon Master League. While she loves any and all Water-types, she chose Starmie to be her partner.
  • Bare Your Midriff: In her blue swimsuit and Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee design.
  • Legacy Character: Misty's Starmie here is not the Starmie she uses in her Gym battles in the main games. As she explains during her Sync Pair Story, this Starmie is actually that Starmie's child.
  • Making a Splash: Uses Starmie, a Water-type Pokémon.
  • Mythology Gag: During her Sync Move, Misty adopts her pose from Pokémon Yellow.
  • Out of Focus: In comparison to Brock and the player character. The player character is always present, even if they aren't on the team, and Brock is considered the mentor to the player, even getting character development and a new outfit with a new Pokemon. Misty largely fades out of the story around the middle and does not appear again until after Chapter 18.

    Lt. Surge & Voltorb 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ltsurge.png
Dex #4
Voiced by: Patrick Seitz (English)
Rating: 3 Stars
Sync Move: Electric Sync Beam
  • Signature Mon: A subversion of this trope happens in that Lt. Surge has a Voltorb instead of Raichu (Hau has Alolan Raichu instead). However, a lot of his dialogue shows his love and enthusiasm for Raichu.

Dex #5
Voiced by: Xanthe Huynh (English), Ai Kayano (Japanese)
Rating: 3 Stars
Sync Move: Nature-Loving Petal Dance

  • No Sense of Direction: Her Sync Pair story has her getting lost in the middle of a town while trying to find a shop, despite the fact that her Vileplume knows the way and was walking straight ahead of her. She admits that she'd never find it on her own.

Dex #9
Voiced by: Dorothy Elias Fahn (English)
Rating: 4 Stars
Sync Move: Tried-and-True Hex

  • Defrosting Ice Queen: As she goes into her backstory about her and Samuel Oak, she reveals that she preferred to keep to herself to contemplate while Oak would attempt to be sociable with her. Over time, she gradually warmed up to him, partially through her battles with him, which caused her to respect the future professor and his unbeatable battle record. She describes this is one of the reasons she resents the professor so much in the main games when he stopped battling to focus on research. She also warms up to the player and claims her Gengar brings this out in her as well.
  • Super Mode: Gengar Mega Evolves into Mega Gengar during the Sync Move.
  • The Quiet One: By her own admission, while people like Professor Oak thrive in the company of others, she prefers solitude so that she may contemplate to herself.

Sync Move: Water Sync Impact, Crystalline Aqua Tail (Feraligatr)
——
  • Badass Bookworm: She is noted as being very knowledgeable about Pokémon and her partner can evolve into Feraligatr, a bulky physical attacker.
  • The Bus Came Back: After being replaced by Lyra in the remakes of her debut game, Kris finally makes a return here.
  • Mythology Gag: Kris says here she wants to be a researcher. Her Pokémon Adventures counterpart is Professor Oak's aide.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whitney_3.png
Dex #12
Voiced by: Sarah Williams (English), Yuuko Natsuyoshi (Japanese)
Rating: 4 Stars
Sync Move: Supercute Rolling Tackle

  • Genki Girl: As always, Whitney is very energetic, and it shows in her animations.
  • The Idiot from Osaka: Just as in the original games, Whitney sports a rather thick Osakan accent. Unlike the original games, however, Pokemon Masters is notably the first Pokémon game to translate this accent into its English adaptations by giving her a Southern accent in its translation. This only carries over to written dialogue; it doesn't reflect her spoken dialogue.
  • Tsundere: She's usually quite cheerful and energetic, but she gets a bit huffy and defensive for no particular reasons when she thinks you're insinuating something when she's doing all the talking.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/will_6.png
Dex #16
Voiced by: Phillip Reich (English)
Rating: 4 Stars
Sync Move: Mystery Masquerade Psychic
  • Gathering Steam: Will fights best when he's loaded with stat buffs from his active skill and his teammates due to Xatu's main move being Stored Power. He'll be sitting around doing nothing early on in a battle, but once he gets some boosts, Xatu will indiscriminately chew up anything in front of it.
  • Power Copying: His active ability "Our Power is Limitless!" allows him to gain double the stat boosts active on an enemy target.

Voiced by: Laura Post (English), Haruka Shamoto (Japanese)
Rating: 3 Stars
Sync Move: Fiery Passion Overheat

  • Aesop Amnesia: Downplayed. In the original games, she learns from battling the player that she doesn't necessarily have to follow her family legacy to the letter and is better off forging her own style, but in this game, she slips back into it for a bit in her debut story (though she gets over it quickly).
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her shirt is tied to reveal her stomach from bustline to waistline, fitting her theme as a hot Fire-type leader.
  • Exposed to the Elements: In Pryce's story segment, Flannery follows the player, Barry, and Norman around a glacier to look for him, and consequently shivers the entire way due to her attire.

  • Badass Mustache: The badassery of his mustache is only matched by Blaine's.
  • Graceful Loser: Unlike most characters, who usually lament their loss upon being defeated, Drake gives the opponent a genial "Well played!"
  • Super Mode: Subverted - unlike most trainers whose partner have Mega Evolutions, Drake's Salamence does not Mega Evolve during their Sync Move (even though he did Mega Evolve it in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire).

Sync Move: Water Sync Beam, Late Fee Bubble Beam (Empoleon)
The son of Battle Tower Tycoon Palmer. Having been befriended by Rosa earlier, she suggests to the Player Character and their team to recruit him. Jumpy from an encounter with Team Break, Barry initially mistakes the Team for the villainous goons and fights them. His partner is Piplup/Prinplup/Empoleon.

  • Glass Cannon: Even compared to most other Strike-category Sync Pairs, Roark stands out as being all offense. With his attack buffs and his final skill giving him perfect accuracy on his next attack along with a full move gauge, his Cranidos can easily Head Smash things into oblivion, but Head Smash also retains its hideous recoil damage which will inevitably shave off half of Cranidos's health bar or more on each hit.

Dex #39
Voiced By: Kayli Mills (English), Aki Toyosaki (Japanese)
Rating: 5 Stars
Sync Move: Grass Sync Beam, Shoot For The Stars Leaf Storm (Serperior)
A trainer from the Unova region. She is first encountered in the tutorial, standing up against a Punk Girl and a Street Thug for harassing Cynthia and demanding they battle the Sinnoh League Champion despite her being too exhausted to battle. Her partner Pokémon is Snivy, who can evolve into Servine and Serperior.
  • Genki Girl: She's very energetic. She wonders if the fresh oxygen that Grass-type Pokémon always give off may be a factor for her abundant energy.
  • Green Thumb: Uses Grass-type Pokémon.
  • Mighty Glacier: Rosa's Serperior boasts an astronomical Sp. Defense stat and excellent Defense stat. Coupled with its Passive Skill that negates Sp. Defense debuffs and Giga Drain, Serperior is one of the best tanks in the game. Its miserably mediocre Speed stat means it has trouble getting advantage, however.
  • Mythology Gag: She mentions how she did some movie acting for Pokéstar Studios in the Unova region.

  • Bare Your Midriff: As always, her pilot suit exposes her midriff.
  • The Pollyanna: She views everything with a positive outlook no matter what, including both her and you losing to Lear in her introductory chapter. All she can do is praise her Swanna for having so much fun and you and your Pikachu for having such a steadfast attitude for trying to take on Lear.
  • Stone Wall: Swanna's starter attack, Gust, doesn't do a lot of damage, but it has very high HP, good defences, and its other starter move is Potion. Swanna thus makes a great tank, soaking up damage while your other two Sync Pairs go to town on whoever you're fighting.

Occasionally, when talking to her in the main hub, she might not even register your presence for a while (represented by several text boxes of ellipses). It's best reflected through her voice actor's interpretation of her character, especially her amusing chuckle.
    Leveling up: It feels like I've grown a bit... (Gasp!) I wonder if I'm getting buff? Heuh-heuh.

  • Badass in Distress: She's too exhausted to battle a bunch of punks who are demanding to battle her. Rosa sticks up for her, but it's up to the Trainer, Brock, and Misty to chase them off. Cynthia is impressed by your battling, and looks forward to giving you a proper battle later.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Shows up at the very beginning of the campaign, then promptly vanishes, and so far is not obtainable.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Garchomp, a Dragon-type, is a dragon shark, among other things.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She towers over both Rosa and Brock, and is absolutely gorgeous!

    Red & Charizard 
Voiced by: Brandon Winckler (English)

  • Animal Motifs: His jeans and hat pin are decorated by blue flames, which are also seen on Mega Charizard X.
  • The Ghost: Serves as this for the first half of story mode, in which his presence is only expressed verbally, before making his first physical appearance in Interlude 1.
  • Super Mode: As seen in the promotional artwork, his Charizard can Mega Evolve.

    Lance & Dragonite

Non-Sync Partner Characters

Other Trainers

    Professor Bellis 
Voiced by: Tamara Ryan (English)

A professor who researches how Sync Moves work and studies the relationships of Sync Pairs. She's interested in the bonds that trainers form with their Pokémon.

  • Floral Theme Naming: Bellis continues the trend of professors being named after plants, though it's not a tree this time around. More specifically, it's a genus of flowering plants that includes the common daisy.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: She loves to pepper her dialogue with French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, and Japanese words. A Collector lampshades this when trying to pepper his dialogue with foreign words in hopes of attracting her attention. She doesn't know what he just said. A Hiker then asks her to speak English since he didn't understand what she just said either.

    Paulo & Rockruff 
Voiced by: Khoi Dao (English)

A trainer that the Team encounter while raiding a Team Break hideout. He turns down their offer to join their team in favor of forming his own team.

    Lear 
Voiced by: Bryce Papenbrook (English)

The creator of the Pasio artificial islands, and a participant in the PML who is determined to be the Champion.


  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Lear may be arrogant and self-centered beyond reason, but he can still hold his own against Iris and her Haxorus. Although, as Pryce points out, Iris was tired out from being hounded by Team Break at the time.
  • Cool Shades: An awesomely flashy pair of red sunglasses that superficially resembles a pair of pliers.
  • Hate Sink: With Team Break lacking a defined leader and thus mostly being confined to mook duty and Paulo serving as a Friendly Rival, Lear thus takes the role of "jerk rival that you want to beat down".
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: He goes on and on about how great he is, but he also says he was defeated by a trainer in a red hat (probably Red) and wants to avenge his loss. Which makes it looks like he created Pasio and the PML for the sole purpose of soothing his bruised ego.
  • Jerkass: He constantly talks up how much better he is than his opponents, and refuses to admit that his companions and Pokémon are anything but tools. Despite this, he avoids actual villainy, as he fights fairly and opposes the criminal activities of Team Break.
  • Rich Bitch: Rich enough to build an artificial island, but extremely lacking in politeness and tact to say the least.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He acts like everyone rightfully should know who he is without having to introduce himself because he's the owner and creator of the Pasio Islands, as if that alone should garner respect from everyone who sets foot on it. He wants to become the Pokémon Masters League champion so everyone will be forced to acknowledge his greatness.
  • Theme Naming: Lear and his friends are tools — and they're named after them, too. "Lear" comes from "pliers", and his international names are also drawn from the local word for pliers.

    Sawyer 
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Or rather, Punch Clock Jerkass. When Rachel starts to praise the main character's group a little too much, Sawyer has to remind her that Lear ordered them not to be too nice to the competition. Unlike Rachel, Sawyer won't even admit that he does this more out of affection for Lear than loyalty to his prince.
  • Theme Naming: "Sawyer" is the most obvious of his group's tool names; he's named after a saw. In English, anyway; in most other languages, his names are taken from the local names for a screwdriver.

    Rachel 
Voiced by: Erica Lindbeck (English)

    Trista, Tricia, and Trinnia 
Voiced by: Faye Mata (English)

Trista is the administrative assistant of the PML and PokéCenter clerk, Tricia is the PokéMart clerk, and Trinnia is the team manager.


  • Meaningful Name: In contrast to Nurse Joy, Trista and Tricia's names are derived from the Latin word trista, meaning "sadness".
