All the characters that appear in the game. Still in progress, Needs Wiki Magic Love. Unmarked spoilers ahead!
- Action Girl: If female.
- Ambiguously Brown: Axel, Ariana and Aero.
- Ambiguous Gender: All of them potentially, but especially Alain and Aero.
- Chosen One: Implied to be one of the lights mentioned in the light prophecy.
- Hello, [Insert Name Here]: As is usual in Pokemon games.
- The Hero Dies: Gets knocked into lava by Geara atop Valor Mountain. Thankfully, due to Crescent's interference, it doesn't stick. It's later implied that this is actually a power the Interceptor just generally has, though.
- Happens again in the Bad Future after blocking a Decimate from Melanie's Yveltal that was meant for Melia. Again, they come back just like last time. According to Madame X, them being The Interceptor has something to do with their inability to die.
- Heroic Mime: Lampshaded by several of Team Xen, who mock their blank stare and tendency to say nothing. However, it is implied at times that they talk to others, and they speak explicitly twice in V12: first one line when playing as Aelita and then in the flashback with Axel and Aria.
- Heroic BSoD: Despite being a Heroic Mime, they go through one after Nancy's death, staying in their cabin for days and barely speaking to those who try to talk to them.
- Iconic Item: Mostly averted; none of them have the usual Pokémon protagonist hat except for Aevis in his second outfit.
- Immune to Fate: Their role as the Interceptor.
- Mysterious Past: Little is known about their past, but more is being revealed as the game goes on. At one point, Nymiera refers to them as Adrest, after which they leave her house and refuse to interact with her. It is later revealed that each possible MC was in fact a separate person, and that they lived in Aevium before the Calamity.
- No Man of Woman Born/Ambiguously Human: Because their mother Nancy is heavily hinted to not be human, making the protagonist only part human by default.
- Peeka Bangs: Aevis, Aevia and Ariana.
- Repressed Memories: When they reach a house near Hiyoshi Pass, the screen fades to black and mysterious voices are heard, which affect them so much that they lose conciousness. Who the voices belong to and what happened to them is unknown. When they return to that same house in the present it is implied that the voices belonged to each of the different character choices.
- Resurrective Immortality: Has died twice onscreen so far, and neither of the deaths has stuck. Beyond Madame X calling them "The Interceptor", there's no indication what this means or where this power comes from, though it is later revealed the Interceptor was a story told in Garufan culture.
- Screw Destiny: Garufan culture apparently believes that while You Cannot Fight Fate normally since everything is predestined, the Interceptor is Immune to Fate.
- Suddenly Voiced: In Version 12 they are briefly possessed by an unknown entity (most likely the unknown Adrest) in order to explain to the group that they must retrieve the Jewel of Life to return water to the Spring of Rejuvenation. Ren points out that this voice sounds different from their usual one.
- Theme Naming: All Of their names begin with A, including Anas and Adrests.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: After the events at Blacksteeple Castle the player can make certain actions that imply this: leaving Kreiss locked up in Angie's church, ignoring Reina's pleas for help and abandoning her in the Valor Mountain Crossing, constantly refusing Venam's requests for assistance, pretending to try to help the captured police officer just to leave him to die anyway so they can save their own skin... of course, this is averted depending on player choices.
- Tragic Keepsake: After completing Blacksteeple Castle, the player is given one of the recently deceased Nancys Mawiles. Later on, Ren gives you her perfect IV Sylveon.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Aevia has pink hair in her first outfit. Alain has blue and purple hair in their second outfit.
Veronica "Venam" Vasile
- Afraid of Needles: As seen in Grand Dream City.
- And I Must Scream: She reveals after her return in Version 12 that while she was turned to stone, she wasn't unconscious.
- Arch-Enemy: She hates Saki, to the point that just mentioning her name gets Venam so angry she's practically on fire. It's later hinted that this is because Erick stopped being her friend and became Saki's instead.
- Badass Gay: She's smitten with Melia.
- Berserk Button: Don't call her Veronica.
- Big Damn Heroes: Saves you from Gardevoir and Indriad with her stolen Charizard should you try to rescue the corrupt police officer.
- In Version 12, she and Ren show up to help take down Isha.
- Cannot Spit It Out: She's in love with Melia, but doesn't admit it until she and Lavender are cornered by Lorna, and Lavender isn't able to tell Melia until she meets her in the hospital.
- Disappeared Dad: Semi-example. Her father didn't vanish, he was banned from Gearen City, so they haven't seen each other in some time.
- Do Not Call Me "Paul": About the only person who refers to her as Veronica is her mother.
- Everyone Has Standards: When Angie claims to be a Gym Leader, Venam says that the Aevium League might not have very high requirements for a leader's mental stability, but even they would not let her join.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Tried to buy Lavender time to escape by confronting Nim. Unfortunately, her sacrifice didn't actually achieve anything, Nim decided not to turn Lavender to stone on her own initiative.
- Last Request: Exploited; a few times she fakes death and asks random people to bring her a Berry from Berry Emporium. Ren doesn't fall for it, though, because he knows about it. Her last request to Lavender before she tries to distract the brainwashed Nim is to tell Melia she loves her.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: She hates being called Veronica.
- Poisonous Person: Since she specialises in Poison-types.
- Signature Mon: Her Seviper. As well as Charizard after she steals it from Tesla.
- Taken for Granite: After Lavender sneaks out at night to investigate the stone phenomenon in Grand Dream City, Venam follows her. It seems she saved Lavender from the same fate, but unfortunately Venam gets turned to stone instead.
- We Used to Be Friends: With Saki and Amber, until the fire. Word of God says all three of them blame each other for starting it. In actual fact, none of them started it.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Amber.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple, at least until Melia asks her to change it to brown so she doesn't stand out after you go back in time.
- Abusive Parents: He was very cold and aggressive to Aelita later in his life, and she couldn't tell anyone she was his daughter. He did so because after being blackmailed to kill all of Sheridan to save Aelita's life, he couldn't handle life anymore and had his emotions separated from himself, which made them form a separate person.
- The Chew Toy: A mysterious woman completely fucked him over, repeatedly screwing with his mind to make him believe things that weren't true. His entire relationship with Taelia was apparently based on said woman manipulating him, to start with. He had to watch his wife die, was mindfucked to believe that she always blamed him for it, and after that was blackmailed into joining Team Xen and sacrificing everyone in Sheridan village so Aelita wouldn't be killed.
- Emotion Suppression: Did that to himself. You later reverse that.
- Future Badass: He's part of the resistance in the Bad Future.
- Good Parents: He was initially this to Aelita and Nora. Due to the Trauma Conga Line of his life deciding to screw him over one last time, though, this changes to him becoming cold and somewhat abusive.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He saves you from Madelis's Shadow Mewtwo at the cost of his life.
- HeelFace Turn: He used to be part of Team Xen. He didn't join willingly, though.
- I Am Not Left-Handed: From what we see of him during Where Love Lies, he wasn't taking you even remotely seriously during your gym match with him. Or during your fight with his Revenant. His main team, seen in the Doomed Timeline, is composed of multiple types and in the mid to high 70s.
- Meaningful Rename: Renamed himself after joining Team Xen. Ke-Ta is made up of the first two letters of both his and Taelia's names.
- Not So Stoic: Whenever Aelita's in danger, even his stoic "physical" self can't stay totally calm.
- Parents as People: He wasn't very good to Aelita during the last part of his life, but he had his reasons. And technically, he wasn't her father.
- Player Character: He's the protagonist of the "Where Love Lies" side episode.
- Signature Mon: His Shiny Lucario, who has been by his side since before he arrived in Aevium.
- Trauma Conga Line: Jesus Christ, where do we start? He was given the ultimatum to kill his wife or watch those he loved die. When he refused, his mother was murdered (maybe before he even got the letter itself), the fire in Gearen was started to kill his friends and their children, and the Wispy Tower was burned down to kill the children of Sheridan Village. His wife and child were murdered, and his mind was fucked with to make him believe that Taelia always blamed him for it. Then, years afterward when he thought he'd come to terms with it, he begins having apparitions of Taelia and Nora blaming him for their deaths. He's told the cure might be fixing things with his brother, but once he does that, his brother dies to save his life. And then not only are the apparitions not cured, he's found by Team Xen, who blackmail him into letting everyone in Sheridan die so Aelita won't be killed. And then he runs into the Red-Haired ??? woman below, who tells him she engineered a lot of his life and was probably responsible for said hallucinations, and after that she gets away scot free due to Time Travel. Is it any wonder the poor bastard had his emotions suppressed after all that?
- Unfinished Business: His ghost won't pass on until you beat him, so you can get his Badge from him after all.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He started out as a friendly guy who wanted to help as many people as possible, but time wore him down and turned him into the cold, emotionless Keta (though the Emotion Suppression was the main cause of that). His "specter"/ghost is still friendly, though.
- Berserk Button: Bringing up his famous sister.
- Hate Sink: He is the epitome of the spoiled frat boy archetype. A jerk, pervert and narcissist, he cares nothing about those who arent him. In Version 2, his mugshot was even called Vs Asshole.
- Hidden Depths: Aelita figures out that he accepted the job of Sensei because he was sick of being overshadowed by his sisters.
- Also, it's stated that Texen's mental strength is far greater than it appears to be, to the point that Aelita had to hit his Berserk Button in order to get an opening.
- It's All About Me: He throws a shit-fit when things don't go his way, to the point that he punches the Eldest into a river because she politely informed him that the laws of Sheridan Village made him banning you and Aelita impossible unless you did something flat out illegal (and that his hair getting set on fire didn't qualify).
- Jerkass: He's a straight up asshole.
- Life of the Party: He throws a lot of parties.
- Signature Mon: His Infernal.
- Small Name, Big Ego: He talks a big game, but he isn't that strong. He's not as much of a Small Name in Version 12, though, as his team has progressed to the low 70s and can take Aelita on in a fair fight.
- Walking Spoiler: He's not very important, but it's hard to talk about him without spoiling that he replaces the now-dead Keta as Sheridan's Leader.
- Zero-Effort Boss: In Aelita's words, he's about as weak as the 3rd Gym Leader, which amounts to having Pokémon in the mid 30s. While your team is probably in the mid 50s.
- Downplayed when you fight him as Aelita, in which case his Pokémon are not as lower levelled compared to hers.
Maria "Marianette" Theolia
- Good with Numbers: Aparently capable of calculus as a kid.
- Genius Bruiser: Besides being a Gym Leader, she's mastered advanced calculus before she was 5 years old.
- Meaningful Name: Marianette is nearly identical to marionette, or puppet. She spends a lot of time having her strings pulled.
- Nice Girl: Goes against her father's wishes to free the player, even when she knew she'd be punished. She even fairly battles the player when her father threatened to sacrifice her.
- Non-Elemental: She is the Normal leader, after all.
- Signature Mon: Her Bewear.
- Taken for Granite: She's temporarily sealed in a crystal prison after her mother is killed.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Until her mother died and her father went full cult. And even now, she's still sweet - just not as much.
- Amnesiac Hero: She and her younger self cannot remember their childhood- in the latter's case, she got severe headaches whenever she tried. This is due to her having taken pills to forget her sister and the traumatic events associated with her.
- The Chains of Commanding: Tells Aelita that she may be the leader, but she's not a dictator- she can't just order the town to do something and expect them to do it, so they need to find a way to convince everyone if they want actual change to happen.
- Color Motifs: Purple.
- Fish out of Temporal Water: One of the sidequests of West Gearen ends with Dufaux switching past Narcissa with present Narcissa.
- Hidden Depths: At first glance, she looks to be a xenophobe like everyone else in Goldenleaf Town. In truth, she's sick of keeping it up and just wants the town to welcome people again, which is notable because her husband was one of the casualties of the Wispy Tower burning down.
- Shed the Family Name: At the end of her quest, she renounces the Altair name due to the familys corrupt dealings and placement of their name and reputation above their childrens well-being.
- Signature Mon: Her Chandelure, which was a gift from her husband and replaced a Chandelure that previously died and was strong enough to counter Dufaux. Later, said Chandelure was turned into a Dimensional Rift Pokemon without Narcissa's knowledge.
- Soul Power: She is the Ghost gym leader, after all.
- Stable Time Loop: How the quest with her fighting Dufaux alongside you and her younger self ends. Her younger self takes the last dose of a memory-suppressing drug to ensure that the time stream isn't thrown out of whack, so that all the things she's learned about the future will come to pass.
- This Cannot Be!: Her reaction to finding out that her husband was keeping a really big secret from her: Namely, he had Giratina imprisoned under the Wispy Tower and was trying to use its power to make a new world.
- Later on, she admits that she had come to realize that he never loved her, when she talks to you and said younger self about what you found in the labs under Wispy Tower.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has purple hair.
- Mystical White Hair: As befitting the Ghost-type Leader.
- Nightmare Fetishist: Says that Narcissa's Gym has some weird decor, but he really likes it.
- Punny Name: His name is derived from spectre.
- Soul Power: As the reserve Ghost-type Leader, naturally.
- FaceHeel Turn: Pulls one in the Bad Future, acting as a pirate that brings people to Melanie's castle. She pulls a HeelFace Turn after Melanie is defeated, in the "Do Nothing" ending, though.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: The choleric of her, Adam, Braixen and Saki.
- The Leader: Of Akuwa Town, having done her best to fight off Team Xen when they attacked, and also managed to save Braixen from getting caught and found her a place to hide out.
- Loss of Identity: She's found in Grand Dream City with a new appearance and occupation, and doesn't remember her old self at all. How this happened is unclear, though it's reminiscent of what happened to Nim (and later, Adam). It's later revealed that there's a bunker under the Hospital of Hope that can remove people's memories, so that's likely the cause. In Version 12, she's been having dreams of her past.
- Making a Splash: The Water-type leader.
- A Mother to Her Men: Subverted in the Bad Future - while she calls her crew her "babies", she doesn't really care for them that much. Or at least, she doesn't care enough to stick around and fight a losing battle against you, the Resistance, Melia, and Madame X.
- Signature Mon: Her Primarina.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Until Grand Dream City, when she appears with brown hair. Judging by the Bad Future and how she's got brown hair there, brown is her natural hair color.
- Big Creepy-Crawlies: As the Bug-type Leader.
- Blind Seer: He is technically blind, but using his Bug-type Pokémon he can "see" through their eyes.
- Hidden Depths: He works for the same organisation as Looker and Anabel.
- Parents as People: His father, Rorim B is... eccentric, to say the least. But he does care for Crawli.
- Signature Mon: His Araquanid.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is bright green.
- An Ice Person: As well as wielding Ice-types, she can also freeze people by herself.
- Arch-Enemy: Anju considered Indriad/Vitus the personification of evil.
- Became Their Own Antithesis: While she was a fervent believer in Arceus as Anju, she made sure to never impose her beliefs on anyone. As Angie, not so much...
- Brainwashed: Does this to Venam and tries to do it to Melia as well. And given how Anju was found in the back of Indriad's mansion before you fight Marianette for her badge, it's possible she was subjected to this herself.
- Corrupt Church: She's so far the only Gym Leader that is clearly evil until Flora jumps past the Moral Event Horizon, and is quite clearly religious, so she's in charge of one.
- Disproportionate Retribution: She wanted to freeze the local Help Center because she thinks that everyone should help themselves first before helping each other.
- FaceHeel Turn: Went from the kindhearted, helpful Anju to the evil psychotic Angie, and so far it's not known why, but the implication is that she's currently Brainwashed and Crazy.
- Good Shepherd: Used to be this while she was Anju, viewing it as not her responsibility to try and force people to "see the light", and serving as one of the Protectors of Aevium.
- Hidden Depths: She has some involvement with Indriad (and might be related to him), and is Anju, transformed. As Anju, she was one of the Protectors of Aevium. Also, she apparently had a son while she was Anju (though it's unknown who he is or what happened to him).
- Human Popsicle: She has the power to freeze people solid, as Crawli's Pokémon Rangers found out the hard way... She gets frozen in Nevermeltice herself by Kreiss after the protagonist defeats her. Unfortunately for us, she's freed by Cera later on. She also once created a magic sphere that could do this and gave it to Cella so that she could protect herself and Taelia when Storm-9 hit, while she was still Anju.
- Reality Warper: Apparently, her mere presence turned Kristiline Town from a summer paradise into a town infested with ice.
- Sanity Slippage: She starts out as merely off-balance, and then rapidly goes completely nuts afterwards.
- Signature Mon: Her Walrein and Regice, if her resurrection scene and her time as Anju is anything to go by.
- Villainous Breakdown: Loses it big time when Melia resists her attempt to mind-control her.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is a light blue color.
- You Have Failed Me/You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Does this to both pairs of maids that she sends against you once you defeat them, proving her evil beyond all reasonable doubt (as if her treatment of Venam and Melia, not to mention Crawli's Pokemon Rangers, didn't do this already). It's later revealed that said maids are likely Garufan spells, but still...
KreissNeverwinter City's Ice-type Gym Leader.
- Big Damn Heroes: If released, he grabs Valarie and rescues the player, Venam and Melia.
- Distressed Dude: He's first met while held prisoner by Angie.
- Hero of Another Story: He and Aelita went on a quest off-screen to find one of the Springs.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is very light blue.
- Younger Than They Look: He's 56, which surprised Valarie.
Amber Von Brandt
- The Bus Came Back: Reappears in Grand Dream City as the judge for the tournament of the Festival of Dreams.
- Cool Big Sis: She seems to be trying to invoke this dynamic with the player after Tesla offers you a place to stay and she starts cooling down from her Spoiled Brat phase. It's a work in progress.
- Disappeared Dad: Her dad was the last Dark-type leader, but abandoned his daughter and wife and resigned his post to get away from them. He was intending to make amends, but died before that could happen.
- Fiery Redhead: A Fire-type user with red hair with quite the temperament.
- Heroic Lineage: Her mother is a member of the Elite 8. Also, her father was Kenneth's brother, meaning she's Kenneth and Taelia's niece and Aelita's sort-of-cousin.
- Life of the Party: Throws a lot of parties.
- Lonely at the Top: She straight up admits that she has basically no friends.
- Persona Non Grata: She was banned from Gearen City as a child after being wrongly blamed for a fire that burned down half the city.
- Playing with Fire: Well, obviously. It seems to run in the family.
- The Scapegoat: For the fire in Gearen. Turns out it not only wasn't an accident, it was intended to kill her mother and their friends to hurt Keta.
- Signature Mon: Her Magmortar.
- Spoiled Brat: Tesla spoiled her a lot when she was young. That's the main reason why she's such a jerk. Thankfully, she mellows out a bit after the events at Valor Mountain, especially if you saved her. When she meets the player in Grand Dream City, she says she's working on becoming less of a brat.
- Spotting the Thread: She's the one who tells everyone that there is no Dark type gym leader in Grand Dream City's hospital, since the last one was her father, who is missing, and there hasn't been one since.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Venam.
- We Used to Be Friends: With Venam and Saki.
- Big Damn Heroes: He, Melia and Sakitron storm Eclysia Pyramid to help the heroes.
- The Bus Came Back: Reappears in Version 12 to help out Melia and Madelis.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Version 12 revealed that he's actually the one who built Sakitron.
- Nice Guy: He's a genuinely nice person.
- Shock and Awe: He is the reserve Electric leader.
- Signature Mon: His shiny Electivire.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: He is the first Gym Leader to use a Mega Evolution.
- We Used to Be Friends: With Venam, until Saki showed up.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is blue.
- All for Nothing: She blows up a building filled with innocent people as well as her own grunts, losing the support of most of her followers in the process, just to kill Cassandra and the Grand Dream City elite. In the end it turns out those sacrifices were for nothing as Cassandra survived the blast without as much as a scratch, her grunts were arrested and Florin escaped her custody and had her arrested too.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Zigzagged. While her niceness is a total facade, she has good intentions in getting rid of the corrupt parts of Grand Dream City's government, (and the current mayor, Cassandra, is a member of Team Xen and plays this trope totally straight).
- Break the Haughty: Version 12 is just one long instance of this trope after another for her.
- Do Not Adjust Your Set: Does this after the player's fight with Adam, pulling a mass declaration to Grand Dream City - and Cassandra - that she is going to be ripping the corrupt government apart, and declaring herself as the head of Team Bladestar.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Can be seen in two places at the start of the game; leaving Gearen Lab with Dr. Jenkel and in his lab for a few seconds when you first arrive there. In the second case, she is dressed in her Bladestar uniform.
- Failed a Spot Check: She completely fails to see the player hiding in Darchlight Woods when she reveals herself as a Bladestar admin.
- Green Thumb: As the Grass-type Leader.
- Meaningful Name: Flora was the Roman goddess of flowers. Furthermore, Grevillea is a genus of flowering plants.
- The Mole: She's the current leader of Team Bladestar. However, she claims that her only goal is to get rid of Grand Dream City's corrupt government.
- Not So Different: Ryland says she is this to Madame X, being a Manipulative Bitch. Granted, Flora has good intentions from what we can see, while Madame X is pretty much a chronic dog-kicker. But with that said, as of Episode 12, there's no doubt that Flora has sunk just as low as Madame X has in her quest to rebuild Grand Dream City.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: She snuck into Team Xen's HQ in order to steal Rift Matter.
- Only Friend: To Rune. Until she revealed she was the leader of Bladestar to Rune, and had to blackmail her so that she wouldn't tell the truth after Rune didn't want to join. Though even then, it doesn't seem like she was the one who made Rune disappear...
- Pet the Dog: According to her journal, she went out of her way to make a PULSE machine that wouldn't hurt her Ferrothorn, and intended to come back for it when it was needed to fight Cassandra (also, unlike all the other Rift or PULSE pokemon, it didn't die after it was beaten).
- People Puppets: Made a contraption that allows her to possess Ryland.
- She Who Fights Monsters: She cut the train tracks to Grand Dream City even though a train crash could have killed dozens of people if it hadn't been for Alexandra, blew up the Grand Dream Ball in an attempt to kill Cassandra, and threatens to poison Ryland remotely if you don't give her the Jewel of Life. She may have started out with good intentions, but she's sunk to the same depths as Madame X and Cassandra in her attempts to stop them.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: Florin and Flora are very different people.
- Signature Mon: Her shiny Mega Venusaur.
- Signature Move: Uproot, a move that can lower special defense which she shares with Florin.
- Stone Wall: In contrast to her brother, her team is very defense-oriented.
- Surrounded by Idiots: She's not that impressed by the average IQ of her Bladestar grunts.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: While she's not wrong that Grand Dream City's government has many corrupt officials, her methods for fixing it are extremely questionable at best. Among other things, Bladestar has tried to kidnap the android Ana, and as the team's leader, she was probably the one who ordered the train lines cut and bridges destroyed, so nobody else could go to Grand Dream City (the former of which would have made the train you were on crash and likely have killed a lot of people if it wasn't for Alexandra stopping it in time). And then there's the bit where she blows up the Grand Dream Ball, with Cassandra and the rest of Grand Dream City's rich and powerful inside (and a number of her grunts she willingly sacrificed to plant the explosives). And then there's what she did to poor Ryland after he left Bladestar...
- Wrench Wench: She built a replica PULSE machine that wasn't quite as pain-inducing and "parasitic" as the originals, and stole Rift Matter so she could power up her Ferrothorn.
Botanist Florin Grevillea
- Green Thumb: Like his sister.
- Meaningful Name: Grevillea is a genus of flowering plants.
- Mighty Glacier: In contrast to his sister, his team is very attack-oriented.
- Nice Guy: His sister describes him as kind and innocent. He is also wholly against Bladestar's goals and opposes his sister entirely.
- Olympus Mons: He has a Sky Shaymin on his team if you fight him on Intense Mode in v10.
- The Scapegoat: If Flora is outed to Cassandra as the head of Bladestar, she frames Florin as her co-leader in retaliation, and he is executed.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: Florin and Flora are very different people.
- Signature Mon: His shiny Mega Sceptile.
- Signature Move: Uproot, a move that can lower special defense which he shares with Flora.
- Sympathy for the Devil: When he's captured by Flora after the attack on the Grand Dream Ball, he just sadly asks her how long she's been this broken.
- Unwitting Pawn: He works for Cassandra, who secretly works for Team Xen.
Lavender BloomGrand Dream City's Psychic-type Gym Leader.
- A Day in the Limelight: You play as her for part of Version 11, when she tries and fails to escape the hospital.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Slapped one of the most powerful people in Grand Dream City for insulting her missing friend.
- Go On Without Me: Tells Braixen to run for it when Isha confronts them as they try to escape the Hospital of Hope.
- Ill Girl: She's asthmatic.
- Mind over Matter: She's an actual psychic, who can sense people near her and view them remotely.
- Signature Mon: Her Alakazam.
- Too Dumb to Live: After finding Talon turned to stone, discovering that he'd been lured out late at night with the promise of a date, and receiving a similar communication, she... sneaks out late at night without telling anyone where she was going. The only reason she doesn't get turned to stone is because Lorna decided to use her as a messenger.
- The Unfought: Her asthma puts her out of commission before you can even challenge her, therefore you end up fighting Magenta and Neon in her place.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Huey.
- You Gotta Have Purple Hair: As befitting her name.
- In-Series Nickname: Erin calls him 'old man'.
- Kick the Dog: He battles the player knowing that he'll have to depart soon afterwards, but doesn't bother to say goodbye, leave a message for or get the player to pass a message on to Erin, his adopted granddaughter. She's not amused.
- Living on Borrowed Time: Spacea and Tiempa let him live on until he could free Aelita of her curse and give the player the Flying-type badge.
- The Lost Lenore: He was this to the Eldest. As it turns out, Spacea and Tiempa rescued him, but they didn't meet again until years later.
- Neglectful Parents: Erin doesn't seem to view him as ever having been abusive or cruel to her, but he was apparently always distant.
- Rage Against the Heavens: Speaks bitterly about Spacea and Tiempa, calling them horrible.
- Signature Mon: His Mega Pidgeot.
- Signature Move: Heavenly Wing, which removes the targets stat changes.
- Winged Soul Flies Off at Death: After the player beats him in a battle, he gives him the badge and TM, then suddenly grows golden wings and vanishes in golden light.
Talon AtriedesA student at Axis High University and Grand Dream City's Flying-type Gym Leader.
- Meaningful Name: Aside from 'Talon' being the claws of birds, 'Atreides' is the name of a noble house from Dune, whose symbol is a red hawk.
- Taken for Granite: He's the first named victim of the stone phenomenon in Grand Dream City.
- The Unseen: He's mentioned a lot, but as he's turned to stone and currently in the Hospital of Hope, you never actually see him on-screen as of Version 12.
- The Unfought: You wind up battling Souta instead.
Adam Might Leon
- Badass Family: His brother Ryland is the Ground type gym leader.
- Badass Gay: He's a strong dude who is into men. Word of God confirmed that he had feelings for Damien before they fell out.
- Dumb Muscle: His default solution to problems is to just charge straight at them. It didn't work too well when he tried it with the vines in Terajuma Jungle.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: He's the melancholic.
- If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him: Argued this point with Ryland before the game's events began. Ryland wanted revenge on Team Xen for murdering most of Alamissa Urben; Adam argued that killing someone would make him just as much a murderer as the person he killed.
- Journey to Find Oneself: Went on one before the game's events began.
- Loss of Identity: Like Valarie, he turns up in Grand Dream City with a different appearance and occupation, and doesn't recognise the player or Aelita. By the end of Version 12, he regains his memories.
- Olympus Mons: Has a shiny Terrakion on Intense Mode.
- Punny Name: His stage name is a pun on Adamite, a type of rock.
- Royal Blood: He is a descendant of King Ieisel. A fact he remembers just in time to reactivate the Spring of Rejuvenation and save Erin's life.
- Signature Mon: His Mega Aerodactyl.
- Signature Move: Matrix Shot, a physical move that deals special damage.
- Terse Talker: Mostly because he gets mocked a lot by Saki.
- Theme Naming: His name is Adam, and his brother used to be called Eve.
- This Cannot Be!: He has this reaction at first when you defeat him, but he gets over it pretty quickly.
- We Used to Be Friends: With Damien, until they argued over getting revenge on Team Xen. Adam had feelings for him, but they weren't reciprocated. They become friends again in Version 12.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is bright blue, at least before Grand Dream City.
- Dishing Out Dirt: As the Ground-type Leader.
- Friendly Enemy: He's a high-ranking member of Bladestar, who initially opposes the player but is reasoned with.
- Glory Days: A variant; they're not his glory days, they're the days when Alamissa Urben was a thriving, beautiful city, not a wreck. Ryland lives in the ruins, refuses to leave and rigged up stones similar to Timesplitter Stones so that anyone who enters the ruins gets visions of Alamissa Urben before it was destroyed.
- HeelFace Turn: He quits Bladestar after realising that Flora isn't the answer to his problems.
- I Have No Brother: He told Flora that he's an only child.
- People Puppets: Flora possesses his body with some kind of device in Version 12. It's removed after you defeat her (she's using Ryland's team).
- Royal Blood: He is a descendant of King Ieisel.
- Signature Mon: His (Crest-using) Torterra.
- Transgender: He's FTM, and was formerly known as Eve.
- Action Girl: Has enough strength to rip out an antenna from the ground and send it flying a fair distance.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: She's crazy like a fox.
- Early-Bird Cameo: If you visit the Chrysolia Hotel before meeting her properly, she will crash into you with a trolley and then leave in a hurry. If you do this, she will acknowledge this interaction later in the game.
- Fearless Fool: She's not afraid of the guards at Blacksteeple Castle at all, and will happily call them names and mock them to be an ample distraction.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: She's the sanguine.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Claims to have created some Poké Balls on her own, and has created a miniature laser with an antenna in a very short amount of time. She also created the device that lets Braixen talk.
- Genius Ditz: She's a Cloud Cuckoo Lander, and a Gadgeteer Genius.
- Heroic Lineage: Is Hazukis granddaughter.
- Signature Mon: Seems to be her Metagross.
- Uncertain Doom: Version 12 reveals that Saki, Adam, Valarie, Braixen, Aelita and Cella were attacked by the two mysterious figures, who presumably handed over Adam, Valarie and Braixen to Isha. Saki is the only person whose fate is as yet entirely unknown.
- White Sheep: The Blakeory family are repeatedly described as being greedy and involved in shady business, and the other members of the family that the player has actually met are assholes. Saki, however, isn't one (an asshole), though she's never talked about her family. Since Thomas referred to her as his stepsister, she may not actually be biologically related to the Blakeory family.
DamienSashila Village's Dark-type (actually Dragon-type) Gym Leader. He is Alexandras brother.
- Badass in Charge: He's the chief of his and Alexandra's tribe, and apparently got the position from his father.
- Foreshadowing: In an optional scene before his proper debut, he turns up riding on a Latios, which isn't a Dark type. When you meet him properly it's revealed that he's actually the Dragon leader, not the Dark leader.
- "It" Is Dehumanizing: Constantly refers to Nim as an "it".
- Knight In Sour Armor: He's on the side of good, but tends to act like a jerk. A Sashila help quest reveals that he's actually very aware of how his temper affects things, and is grateful to people like the player and Alexandra for keeping his anger down.
- Olympus Mons: His sole known Pokémon so far is a Shiny Latios, which he even has the Mega Stone for.
- Revenge Before Reason: Team Xen killed his parents in the invasion of Alamissa Urben, and he's never forgiven them. He says that he's previously wanted to kill every member of Team Xen in retaliation.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: He wants to kill every last member of Team Xen for what they did to Alamissa Urben.
- Royal Blood: He is a descendant of Queen Nymiera.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: He's the grumpy, angsty responsible sibling, while Alexandra's the nice, forgiving sibling. He says they work better together because he's often too angry and unforgiving, while she can be too nice, so they balance each other out.
- Signature Mon: Seems to be his Mega Latios.
- Taken for Granite: Supposedly was one of the victims of the stone phenomenon in Grand Dream City. He appears later and is perfectly fine. He reveals he only faked being a victim to lure out Alexandra.
- We Used to Be Friends: With Adam, who noped out after being frustrated by Damien's lust for revenge. They make up in Version 12.
- Character Development: He grows up a lot when the player's not around.
- Chosen One: He's possibly one of the chosen four in the dark prophecy - specifically, the shadow of betrayal.
- Dark Is Evil: He joins Team Xen after the protagonist fulfills Ren's life dream of fixing Goldenleaf Town, which he wanted to do himself. Later subverted, though.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Despite using a lot of Dark-type Pokémon, he's actually a pretty nice guy, albeit one with a bit of an ego. Subverted when he joins Team Xen, though. Later double subverted, see Face-Heel Turn for more details.
- Deal with the Devil: While the super-powerful and morally ambiguous Crescent is not the devil, Ren agreed to join Team Xen as a mole in return for Melias revival. Once he discovers Crescents deceit, it is far too late to return to his former life.
- Disappeared Dad: His father is nowhere to be seen, and the only mention of him is in optional dialogue with Anastasia during their infiltration of Rejuvenation Co., in which Ren reveals that his father had a Growlithe which he really loved, but then abruptly stops talking about the subject.
- Disproportionate Retribution: His response to the protagonist completing his goal of changing Goldenleaf Town's ways before he does? Joining Team Xen, the same organization that killed his best friend and also tried to kill him back in Amethyst Cave... or so it seems.
- Evil Former Friend: He used to be friends with Venam and Melia, then he joined Team Xen. Though it turns out he only joined Team Xen in an effort to revive Melia, he never intentionally betrayed them.
- FaceHeel Turn: Joins Team Xen after Melia "dies". This is later double subverted, as he initially joined to spy for Crescent who promised to revive Melia, then cut ties with her after realising he was tricked; but by then had no way to leave Xen and decided to stay.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: He's the responsible sibling to Reina's foolish.
- Heroic BSoD: He believes it's his job- and his job alone- to fix Goldenleaf Town. He locks the player out of Goldenleaf Town to prevent them from interfering, and when they actually manage to make the people of Goldenleaf Town change their ways, he reacts badly.
- Put on a Bus: After the Xen Backup Lab he didn't show up for a while.
- The Bus Came Back: He returns in full force in Version 11.
- Remote Body: After joining Team Xen he's gifted a mechanical body that has wings and an arm cannon by Nastasia.
- The Runaway: Ran away from Goldenleaf Town because he hated its inhabitants' xenophobia. His goal was to one day return and change their ways, but that did not end well for him.
- Signature Mon: His Greninja.
- Token Good Teammate: Serves as this to Team Xen after joining. While he still follows Nastasias orders, knowing that he cant leave, he continues being friendly and helps the player, Reina and Huey where he can.
- Trapped in Villainy: Like the rest of Team Xen, he can't exactly leave the group thanks to Madame X. Even though he now knows that Melia is alive.
Melia/EmmaThe other main character of the story.
- Action Girl: In the earlier versions, she chucked a Team Xen grunt and sent him flying, and shot Madame X with one of her own lasers.
- Bad Dreams: Is noted to have them on occasion. It's how Zetta wound up in Nightmare City - he was in one of her nightmares.
- Bi the Way: Word of God says that she's pansexual.
- Black and White Morality: She doesn't really have any faith in anybody in Team Xen at first, even her Evil Former Friend Ren. This fades with time, though.
- Chosen One: Implied to be one of the lights mentioned in the light prophecy.
- Dark Is Not Evil: She has Dark-types and Ghost-types on her team, but she's far from evil.
- Deuteragonist: She's the second most important character in the story, after the player themself.
- Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Tells Spacea and Tiempa after you go through the doomed timeline that if they ever put you or her through something like that again, she will find a way to deal with them/just kill them, powers and intentions be damned. When they tell her it was a necessary sacrifice to awaken her powers, she replies that if they try something like that again "she'll be making two".
- Faking the Dead: She supposedly died during the events in Amethyst Cave, but it turns out she was rescued by Spacea and Tiempa, and that her death was faked by Crescent.
- Fish out of Temporal Water: She spent three years in the past, as part of Spacea and Tiempa's organization.
- Heroic BSoD: Has one when Venam is turned to stone.
- How Do I Shot Web?: Her powers only seem to show up in dire situations or when they're needed, and she states that she can't turn them on just at will even after they're awakened.
- Long Lost Sibling: To Erin, Allen, and Alice.
- The Nicknamer: All of her Pokémon are nicknamed.
- Non-Elemental: She was originally going to be the Normal Leader for the region, and her first team that you fight her with is all Normal types. But after her Faking the Dead incident, she was removed from the roster, and she doesn't use only Normal types after returning.
- Ontological Mystery: Madelis says that she originally was "given" to Professor Jenner by Team Xen. How exactly the younger Melia fell into their hands hasn't been explained, though.
- Plot Magnet: Shares this role with the player.
- Rage Against the Mentor: She is pissed at Spacea and Tiempa after the events of Version 10, telling them that if they ever put her and the player through anything like the doomed timeline again, she'll kill them herself.
- Reverse Mole: As Emma.
- Signature Mon: Her Togekiss, Hapi.
- Theme Naming: Her Pokémon are nicknamed after various virtues and positive emotions, like "Diligence" and "Hope". The except to this is her main Pokémon Hapi the Togekiss, whose name is a corruption of the word "happy" which was the only thing Melia could say when she was little.
- Walking Spoiler: It's a little hard to talk about her without giving away that she didn't actually die in Amethyst Cave.
- Was It All a Lie?: Goes through something like this at first when she finds out that Professor Jenner was supposed to hand her over to Team Xen.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: She has a knack (which Venam calls a hidden ability) for finding Shiny Pokemon. Her entire team is made of shiny Pokemon. It's cool as a power, but not much use in battle.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: She is convinced that she can defeat Team Xen by herself at first, and fix all of the problems herself. While this might be possible in a mainstream pokemon game, it's not the case here. She grows out of it.
Nim/LornaA Psychic specialist who shows up every once in a while. A bit strange, but kind-natured... at least at first.
- Ambiguously Human: According to Damien, she's actually demonic in nature. He also refers to her as 'it', and says that she couldn't be killed by falling into lava, her body would have reformed. While her "demonic" side has yet to be shown, she did survive falling into lava and reformed elsewhere.
- Apocalypse Maiden: According to Damien, letting her live is eventually gonna bring forth the end of the world. Seeing how she's the one turning people to stone in Grand Dream City, it's hard to disagree that she is a serious threat, but she was Brainwashed and Crazy to get her to that point...
- Brainwashed and Crazy: By Crescent after the events at Valor Mountain; taking the name of Lorna.
- The Bus Came Back: When she reappears in Version 12 at Zone Zero to battle you, it's the first time you've seen in person her since Terajuma (though she also interacted with Lavender and Venam in Grand Dream City).
- Cleavage Window: Has this in her second outfit as Lorna.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: She can act rather strangely at times, like pretending to be a tree and claiming to photosynthesize.
- Damsel in Distress: Has to be saved after she's rendered Taken for Granite because of overexterting herself.
- Evil Costume Switch: After being renamed Lorna.
- Important Haircut: By Crescent, as part of her brainwashing.
- Psychic Powers: Among these is an ability to teleport people to some weird psychic dimension. Also her preferred type.
- Sensory Overload: If she uses her powers too much, she turns into stone. This may be connected to how she can render other people Taken for Granite.
- Signature Mons: Her Solrock and Lunatone. Later, her fusion of the two.
- That Woman Is Dead: Acts like this after being renamed by Crescent, saying that only now she understands her true purpose.
- Determinator: She's a hell of a fighter, and even Team Xen torturing her didn't break her spirit.
- For Want of a Nail: In Nightmare City, the Puppet Master says that if Aelita hadn't fallen into that coma, the events of Valor Mountain would have turned out drastically different, and Zetta, Prof. Jenner and Nim could probably have been saved.
- Jerkass Has a Point: To The Puppet Master, after he says that you have no idea what you're getting into, she yells at him that this is because no one has told either of you what is going on. He doesn't disagree.
- Out of Focus: She doesn't appear in Version 11, but returns in Version 12.
- Reincarnation: She's the second reincarnation of Vivian, but also the last after the player, Cella, Melia and Erin free her.
- Reluctant Psycho: She knows after she reappears that she has changed for the worse. And she doesn't like it one bit.
- Seen It All: Right after you go into Carotos Mountain, she has seen Keta desert her without warning, "Shadow Pokemon" that she never knew existed before, Team Xen inside, and the interior of the mountain, which was supposed to be filled with water, filled with lava. And when she finds a base inside it? Keep in mind that this is all before you leave Sheridan Village and get the second badge."After what I've seen? I don't think this shocks me as much as it would have."
- Signature Mon: Her Hawlucha, which was given to her as an egg by Keta. Enough that when she goes to find the three springs of Aevium, it's the only pokemon she takes with her.
- Sins of Our Fathers: She's tortured by Neved because Keta is dead, so she's forced to stand in his stead.
- Superpowered Evil Side: When she's cured of the Garufan curse, the healer treating her discovers that she has 'chains' around her heart. When the chains are removed, Aelita suddenly displays never-before-seen psychic powers and briefly turns evil. She then proceeded to attack people and act rude and capricious until some of the chains were restored.
- It's later revealed that this is Aelita's version of the curse Vivian's Madness, and stated in Where Love Lies to be similar to a Shadow Pokemon's Hyper Mode.
- Tomato in the Mirror: Finds out that her identity was a lie and that she isn't Keta's daughter.
- Trauma Conga Line: Throughout the story, she learns that her father died just as he finally started to act like his old self, was subjected to torture in his place, wasn't chosen as her father's successor for his Gym (and gets to see his house taken over by the Jerkass new Leader), and gets put in an coma by a Garufan curse before becoming a Reluctant Psycho due to the curse's aftereffects.
- Walking the Earth: After being freed from the curse, she leaves her team except for her Hawlucha at the Rose Theater, and goes to find the three springs of Aevium to awaken Vivian's powers.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has purple hair. When she returns in Nightmare City, her hair has suddenly turned pink, as a result of the Garufa curse/the "chains" on her heart being unlocked.
Tesla Von BrandtThe owner of Teila Resort, Amber's mother and a member of the Elite 8.
- Big Damn Heroes: Saves you from Team Xen's attack on S.S. Oceana.
- Famed In-Story: Both Melia and Madelis are big fans of her.
- Heartwarming Orphan: A grown up version. She tells Kenneth in Where Love Lies that she wants to own an orphanage because she is an orphan herself, and immediately takes in the player after Team Xen kills their mother.
- Mysterious Past: She spent years trying to find her origins, which were completely unknown. You can find out from the informant in Sashila Village that Tesla later discovered that her father was from another region, and her mother was from Sashila Village.
- Nice Girl: Opens her house to you after finding out that Nancy is dead, had a goal to open an orphanage before she became an Elite 8 member (and may still have it).
- The Not-Love Interest: Zigzagged - she was this to Keta in the past, but in the Alternate Bad Future, the two appear to be together, and she had Amber with Keta's brother.
- Parental Substitute: To the protagonist after finding out their mother died.
- Playing with Fire: She is a Fire-type trainer like her daughter.
- Self-Made Woman: She started out as an orphan working jobs to make ends meet, and became the owner of Telia Resort and an Elite 8 member.
- We Used to Be Friends: With Keta. She became very angry at him after he no-showed her show without any explanation. He was intending to make amends, but it didn't quite work out.
KarenElite 8 member who you meet during sidequests related to the Hidden Library.
- Axe-Crazy: She is batshit nuts.
- When her sanity is temporarily restored in the Castle Zygara quest, she becomes a lot more coherent.
- Cast From Sanity: According to the Knowledge Broker in Sashila Village, her failure to cast an advanced Garufa spell (creating a Crest) twisted her mind.
- Childhood Friends: Was this to Ryland, Adam, Alexandra and Damien.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Let's just say that some of her logic and doings during 3rd Hidden Library sidequest are... weird. In the Unown Dimension, she turns this up several notches.
- Deadpan Snarker: When she's sane, she turns into this.
- Dishing Out Dirt: Displays the ability to create stone.
- Gemstone Assault: All of her known pokemon have a "gem" theme.
- How the Mighty Have Fallen: Aside from her instability caused by an incorrect Crest making process, she reflects that Castle Zygara has seen much better days when you get there - roughly 20% of the original structure is left from the original castle.
- Jerkass: Not only does she snatch the Mega Ring away from you, she also apparently killed Karrina's parents. All just to get to the Hidden Library and its secrets - and the Mega Stones inside. Karrina wonders how someone like her got into the Elite 8.
- This is a side effect of her insanity, and she is a lot more civil when her sanity is temporarily restored.
- Jerkass Has a Point: When Karrina sets her up to go to Castle Zygara so that she can get revenge on her, she constantly refuses to do anything more than dodge Karrina's attacks, and asks her constantly if killing her will really fix anything, and that while she did kill her parents, she wasn't in her right mind at the time. And that even if Karrina does kill her, they won't come back - and that she Karrina is the one who has constantly refused to move on from the past for all that time.
- Mood-Swinger: When you meet her in West Gearen, she swings between happiness to bloodlust to despair in the span of a few seconds, all because she stepped on a bug by accident.
- The Nicknamer: Refers to the player as 'Little Dove', even when her sanity's restored.
- Never My Fault: During the Castle Zygara sidequest, she has this attitude toward her murder of Karrina's parents- she wasn't in her right mind and she's already apologised, so why is Karrina still angry? Granted, Jerkass Has a Point when she points out she does have a very genuine Insanity Defense, and that Karrina has been actively pursuing her for years on end.
- Not So Different: According to Karrina. Both of them saw their parents murdered at an early age and wanted revenge on the murderers. But Karen's desire to become stronger so she could get revenge drove her to make a Crest, which is what drove her insane, which is why she killed Karrina's parents.
- Psychic Powers: She has them.
- Royal Blood: Is the descendant of a forgotten royal family.
- Sanity Slippage: Her diarys final entry describes how she felt her mind slowly breaking after failing to create a Crest.
- Signature Mon: The first Pokemon she ever caught was a Diancie.
- Wouldn't Hurt a Child: When you meet her for the first time, she states that she wouldn't do anything to harm a kid. Unless they were a brat.
JoleneAn "honorary" Elite 8 member, who you meet at the Spring of Preservation, and the owner of Gearen News. She's also Volta's mother.
GeneralA mysterious terrorist organisation operating in Aevium. Having been relatively docile for a long time, they have finally decided to enact their nefarious plan.
- Jack the Ripoff: The original Team Xen was a criminal organisation operating in the Miera Region. After the nuclear meltdown killed their leader Lord Xenadin and destroyed the region, they stopped operating. Around 50 years later, this Team Xen appeared, now in the control of Madame X.
- Meaningful Rename: All of the admins use pseudonyms, ranging from combining two names meaningful to the person to just removing the first letter of their name.
- Mysterious Past: Most of the admins, and especially Madame X.
- Nom de Guerre: The aliases the admins use.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: As far as most of Aevium knew for a while, they were mostly harmless. This was not the case. Just ask the residents of the Badlands.
- Trapped in Villainy: Most of the lower-level members are this. See Madame X's profile for why.
Professor Jennerson Jenner GellerMelia's foster father who has been working with Team Xen and the Storm Chasers.
- Anti-Villain: Sure, he's part of Team Xen, but he sincerely cares for Melia and even sent the player to Goldenwood Forest to try and prevent Melia from being kidnapped. And like a lot of the other Team Xen members, thanks to Madame X he was Trapped in Villainy.
- HeelFace Door-Slam: He's thrown into the lava by Geara just after he says he's sorry for being a bad foster father to Melia.
- Offstage Villainy: While he was setting Melia up seemingly to be kidnapped and used by Team Xen, there's never been any indication he was abusive towards her besides that. Also, how and why he joined Team Xen has never been revealed.
- Pet the Dog: He knew that both the Storm Chasers and Team Xen were intending to recruit Melia, and both were using him to do it, but instead of going with either team, he encouraged her to apply to join the Pokemon League with the intention of helping her forge her own path in life, though it didn't work.
- Put on a Bus: After the start of the game, just before you get the first badge, he's kidnapped by Crescent via a Rift.
- Reverse Mole: He worked for the Storm Chasers as their spy in Team Xen.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He went from being an eccentric non-conformist, who used to know Tesla and Kenneth, to a professor and member of Team Xen.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: The Storm Chasers planned to dispose of him after delivering Melia to Spacea and Tiempa.
- You're Not My Father: Melia initially thinks this about him after discovering he was supposed to hand her over to Team Xen. She never really gets to take it back before he dies.
Eli and Sharon
- Driven to Suicide: Sharon, almost. She contemplates jumping off a cliff, only for Crescent to push her off. Saki saves her though.
- Enemy Mine: Alongside Nastasia, they help the heroes in the endeavour to restore the Spring Of Rejuvenation.
- Funny Foreigner: Eli, whose grasp of English isn't the strongest, as seen every time he calls Sharon 'Shardon'. When he shows up in Version 12, his English has gotten a lot better, and he starts using big words all the time.
- Noodle Incident: Eli somehow gets trapped in one of the tubes that appear to be used in the process for making Shadow Pokemon (or just keeping pokemon in stasis) while still being aware of his surrounding. Sharon gets him out, but we never get an explanation for how or why this happened.
- Put on a Bus: After Amber's party, they don't appear for a long stretch of time.
- The Bus Came Back: They return after the Grand Dream Ball explosion to help with getting Melia, Alice and Allen to the Spring of Rejuvenation.
- Those Two Bad Guys: They are always seen together.
- The Bus Came Back: He- or at least a version of him- returns in Nightmare City as a minion of the Puppet Master.
- HeelFace Door-Slam: His dialogue during the fight against him on Valor Mountain implies that he's getting cold feet about being part of Team Xen. Sadly, Crescent turns him back into a Solosis and captures him before he can do anything. When he returns in Nightmare City, he's a lot more civil and sympathetic.
- Luke, You Are My Father: He was originally a Solosis before being injected with Melia's DNA, making him technically her brother - or son, depending on how you look at it.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Normally he's something of a Large Ham, but when you find him in Amethyst Cave, he's got nothing but pure hatred towards you for causing Melia's apparent death. Since he's a clone of Melia, it makes sense that he'd be pretty shook up by the death of his "sister".
- Reality Warper: It's stated that he's the only member of Team Xen that can create Dimensional Rifts.
- Starter Villain: Is the first Xen Executive you fight.
- Uplifted Animal: Turns out he's a Solosis that was injected with Melia's DNA, giving him the power to take a human form and control Dimensional Rifts. Crescent undoes this at the end of Version 6.
- Bad Liar: When Isha asks her how she sustained a bad wound, she lies that she fell on a knife. He doesn't buy it.
- The Chew Toy: After she's demoted and made Cassandra's slave, Cassandra continually puts her through hell for no reason besides For the Evulz.
- Egopolis: Downplayed, but the last part of the base in Carotos Mountain is referred to as "Madelis's Palace", and is filled with statues of her. So the downplaying might just be that it's not a whole city, just a base...
- Enemy Mine: Helps Melia fight Amanda at Fuego Ironworks, during which you play as the former.
- For the Evulz: Tries to destroy Sheridan Village just because that's home of the traitor Keta, and does so in the way guaranteed to cause as much harm to those involved as possible.
- Hidden Depths: Is a huge fan of Tesla, so much that this completely derails her operation in Terajuma. She also has a sister, Lisbeth, who is associated with painful memories. It's possible that Lisbeth's name is one of the two she combined to create her own assumed name.
- How the Mighty Have Fallen: Is demoted by Madame X for the Amber fuckup and made Cassandra's bitch.
- Signature Mon: Appears to be her Houndoom.
- Too Dumb to Live: She's given one simple task in Teila Town: capture Melia. She has the perfect opportunity and could easily pull it off. Instead, she abducts Amber so she can get to talk to Tesla, and Melia (as usual) gets away. Madame X is not pleased, especially since Madelis' fuckup directly leads to Team Xen losing Zetta and the Dimensional Rifts.
- Worthy Opponent: She compliments your efforts if you manage to defeat Shadow Mewtwo.
SECA machine that was created to serve Team Xen, who serves as a collective boss/pest.
- Body Backup Drive: SEC states outright the first time you meet it that it has multiple bodies with SEC downloaded onto each of them.
- Deadpan Snarker: Rather hilariously.
- Recurring Boss: While "boss" is a stretch, SEC has shown up multiple times throughout the game, and probably will do so in the future as well.
- Self-Serving Memory: More "You-Deprecating" than "Self-Serving", but SEC tends to mock you with Blatant Lies whenever you beat it.
CLARAAn "upgraded" SEC machine without the snark, CLARA serves as a custodian of sorts for Madelis's base.
- HeelFace Turn: Helps you and Aelita destroy the generator/Rift Volcanion. CLARA's reasoning?"I have come to the conclusion that I hate this place and everyone in it."
- Noodle Incident: Makes it extremely clear that NO PARTIES WILL BE TOLERATED while you are in Madelis's base, before saying "not again..."
- And I Must Scream: You see Literally Shattered Lives below? He's pretty clearly aware of what is happening to him, and he's not enjoying it one bit.
- Big "WHAT?!": When Crescent turns Zetta back into a Solosis, he was pretty damn surprised. So was everyone else, though.
- Creepy Child: According to Narcissa, his step-mother, he always had a dark aura around him.
- Do Not Call Me "Paul": He throws an absolute shit-fit when Narcissa calls him Gregory.
- Evil Orphan: You meet his father in one of Sashila Village's sidequests. He and his family were lost in the void after the Calamity that befell Aevium in the past. He was separated from them soon after birth only to be found by Vitus. Guess where most of his characteristics come from.
- Hidden Depths: He used to be Narcissas step-son and Sirius adoptive son and co-conspirator.
- Literally Shattered Lives: What happened to him after Valor Mountain. The teleporter he built wasn't stable in the first place, and Crescent freeing the Abra that powered it didn't help. When Geara went through it, his body was corrupted and shattered into a thousand still-living pieces, which Nastasia has been painstakingly trying to gather and put back together (so far, she's found 898).
- Olympus Mons: Owns a Giratina, at least until Crescent frees it.
- Soul Power: Uses mainly Ghost-type Pokémon.
- Smug Snake: Never passes up an opportunity to be a condescending, arrogant prick. He's this In-Universe, too, since not even his fellow members of Team Xen like him.
- Weapon of Choice: Clefable and Gengar.
- You're Not My Father: In the Narcissa sidequest, it's revealed that his adoptive father, Sirius/Vitus, married Narcissa, who tried to be a mother to him, but Gregory hated her and refused to listen to her because she wasn't biologically related to him.
- Hidden Depths: Before joining Team Xen, he was a poor ferryman unable to pay for his daughters expensive medical bills.
- Love Makes You Evil: Whatever's the reason for his evildoings is, it's implied to be related to his daughter. It's later revealed she's the child in the Hospital of Hope that Isha is taking care of.
- Morality Pet: He makes one out of Emma, noting that she reminds him of his daughter, and tries to keep her safe, even offering her a job as part of Team Xen.
- Out of Focus: He has by far the least amount of screentime of all the Team Xen admins.
- Put on a Bus: After the heroes escape Blacksteeple Neved doesn't appear for a long while.
- The Bus Came Back: He has a brief appearance to talk with Madelis after the latter finds his daughter Franchesca in the Hospital Of Hope.
- Technicolor Eyes: He has heterochromia, making one of his eyes blue and the other red.
- Wardens Are Evil: Being Blacksteeple Castle's warden and one of the bad guys, this is a given.
- Weapon of Choice: His Barbaracle
- Would Hurt a Child: Is cruel enough to electrocute Aelita. He even states that he's got nothing against her - but since her father Keta is dead, and he hated him, she will have to do.
CassandraThe mayor of Grand Dream City.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Pretends to be a caring, motherly guide for Grand Dream City, but in reality, she's part of Team Xen, and loves forcing Madelis to do everything she says. In the backstory, it turns out that one of the defining moments that led to Team Bladestar forming was her leading the Team Xen invasion of the "City of Happiness" in the Badlands. Many of Bladestar's members apparently had family in said city. "Had".
- Evil Chancellor: Controls Grand Dream City utterly, and has been putting a lot of her own measures into place.
- Evil Is Petty: She pushes Madelis over while the latter is playing waiter to humiliate her in front of a room full of Grand Dream City's rich and powerful. She also had the room decorated in Madelis' sister Lisbeth's favourite colours, just to hurt Madelis.
- Hate Sink: She has no redeeming features so far in the story, from what we've seen.
- I Never Said It Was Poison: Accidentally slips up when the player meets her- she says that Florin and Flora found corruption in Darchlight Woods, when they never said exactly where they found the corruption.
- Jerkass: Aside from the whole 'part of Team Xen' thing, she's happy to let the areas outside of Grand Dream City succumb to the corruption because Grand Dream City won't suffer for it, and everyone living outside the city doesn't matter to her.
- Sadist: She really enjoys Madelis' demotion and being her new boss, especially the bit where Madelis is essentially under a death sentence if she does something Cassandra doesn't like, and shows it by forcing Madelis to smile for her.
- Unexplained Recovery: She somehow survives the explosion at the Grand Dream Ball without as much as a scratch, despite the explosion being meant for her specifically.
Nastasia/Anastasia BellarosaThe highest ranking Team Xen member after Madame X and the one responsible for the attack on the S.S. Oceana.
- Deadpan Snarker: Her first appearance displays this when Geara is screaming over all their lost assets."There's no need to shout, Geara. We can all hear you."
- Enemy Mine: She, Eli, Sharon and some of her other grunts aid the heroes in restoring the Spring of Rejuvenation and in fighting Bladestar.
- Enigmatic Minion: Her reasons for joining Team Xen are unknown, and Madelis wonders why she trusts Madame X so much, as she appears to have nothing on the line.
- I Will Find You: In the past, she did her best to find Maria after Gardevoir kidnapped her.
- Mysterious Past: Little is known about her past and motives, even by the other Xen admins. She is eventually revealed to be Anastasia Bellarosa, Marianettes best friend in the past. However, what caused her to change almost completely is still unknown.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: Her Xen admin pseudonym is just her real name with the first letter removed. That sure will fool them Nastasia. To be fair, nearly everyone who ever knew her by that name, by the events of the main game, has likely not seen her in years due to her being The Runaway. Or possibly died in Storm-9.
- Pet the Dog: Her relationship with Ren (who she met as Anastasia) is a genuinely friendly one, to the point that she's apparently the person who made the artificial bodies he uses on missions. Even if, in true (hilarious) Tsundere fashion, she refuses to admit she cares about him at all.
- She took Venam from the Hospital of Hope and brought her to the Spring of Rejuvenation to see if the Spring could cure her and the other victims of being turned to stone. The thing is, nobody asked her to and nobody from Team Xen was turned to stone, so it seems that Nastasia was just being nice.
- The Runaway: [[spoiler:From her Education Mama when she was younger
- The Unfought: So far, she and Cassandra are the only Team Xen admins to not be fought by the player.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: While she was shy and introverted, young Anastasia was kind natured. As an adult, she is cruel, cold and unfeeling, only losing control of her emotions when her past (especially Maria) is mentioned. Or when she's interacting with Ren, who arguably counts as her Only Friend.
- Weapon of Choice: Deoxys, which she uses to attack the S.S. Oceana and Terajuma Shore.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple.
Xen Dictator Madame X
- Authority Equals Asskicking: She's the leader of Team Xen, and for a good reason. She also says that she's stronger than all her Pokémon, if somehow you beat her Yveltal at Blacksteeple Castle.
- Big Bad: She is the leader of Team Xen, and the main driving force behind the story's conflict.
- Cool Sword: Wields one called Senketsuken, which can translate to "Fresh Blood Sword"
- Enemy Mine: She helps you save Kugearen City from what technically is a bomb, because apparently you're important to everything. She's also forced to help you and Melia in the doomed timeline, because it's the only chance you all have of getting back to your own timeline.
- Even Evil Has Standards: She shows up during the Prologue and is disgusted with how Marianette is treated.
- The Faceless: She's got a mask on her face, and there's no clue who she might be under it. We don't even know for sure if she's human. If Sakitron defeats Amanda, she shows up on the Pyramid and breaks half of Madame X's mask revealing her black hair and red eyes.
- Hero Killer: She murders Nancy when she's trying to pull a Why Don't You Just Shoot Him? on the player, and given the appearances of Yveltal in Where Love Lies, it's very possible that she murdered Kenneth mother, was trying to threaten him into murdering Taelia, and may have been behind the deaths of Taelia and Nora.
- Hidden Agenda Villain: There's no clear clue as to just what she's after. It apparently has something to do with stealing Melia's powers, but so far that's the only knowledge we have.
- Hopeless Boss Fight: When you fight her she uses a Lv. 100 Yveltal with a Armor-Piercing Attack, when your Badge cap is 40.
- I Control My Minions Through...: A combination of power, authority and fear. Madame X is extremely powerful, supposedly even more so than all of her Pokemon combined, (one of them is a Yveltal) and her subordinates are terrified of her. But what truly solidifies her position is her termination of those who fail her.
- Invincible Villain: If the Hopeless Boss Fight mentioned above wasn't enough of a clue, she's got Time Master powers thanks to the Time Diamond, has a lot of knowledge that you don't about what is going on, and judging by a side quest where you help a Team Xen grunt find his mother's grave, and how he starts to fade from existence shortly after you do that, it's implied she has some sort of long-range You Have Failed Me power. The closest anyone has ever come to getting the better of her is Melanie dropping her through a Trap Door.
- Zigzagged later on - at the top of the Pyramid, she can be hit and hurt by Sakitron if she won the fight with Amanda. And while she doesn't fight you directly there, she comes close to taking the Jewel of Life (and possibly can), only for Adam and Delphi to potentially stop her partner, the red-haired woman, after she leaves.
- Knight of Cerebus: Things get serious whenever she is around.
- Lack of Empathy: The only time that we see her show positive emotion towards others is in the Prologue. After that, pretty much all of her appearances are about having her Kick the Dog.
- Never a Self-Made Woman: If you somehow beat her, she talks about failing her father.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: She has red eyes on her mask. Her real eyes are red too.
- Time Master: She carries a stone known as the Time Diamond, which grants its wielder this. This explains why she has shown up out of nowhere at several points, including when you travel to the past.
- Trapped in Villainy: While she herself is not this, she's the enforcer of this for Team Xen - see You Have Failed Me below.
- Weapon of Choice: Her Yveltal.
- Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Tries to do this to you and is stopped by Nancy Taking the Bullet for you, and murders a lot of Pirate Valarie's crew in the Bad Future alternate timeline.
- You Have Failed Me: There's a side quest where you help a Team Xen grunt find his mother's grave, and he "vanishes" shortly after you find it. So she's apparently got the ability to do this at long range.
FloraThe main leader of Team Bladestar, and the Grass Gym Leader of Grand Dream City. See "Gym Leaders" for more information.
Doctor JenkelSee below.
VThe "reporter" of the Underground, who rarely gets involved.
- Aloof Ally: She funds the Underground, but isn't actually part of Bladestar, just an affiliate. Why she won't join the team is unknown.
- The Ghost: Doesn't really do much of anything until Version 12, and that's only in a side quest involving Ana.
- Mysterious Past: According to a scientist in the Underground's main building, she suddenly appeared one day and nobody knows where she came from.
RylandOne of the Admins of Team Bladestar. See "Gym Leaders" for more information.
Indriad/Vitus/Sirius TheoliaLeader of the cult you deal with in Chrysalis Manor and Maria's father. Also Anathea's and later Narcissas husband.
- 0% Approval Rating: The only person he's ever shown any real mutual affection towards was his wife Anathea and after she died, even she has given up on him. Besides the maids who work for him, not a single person in the game has spared a nice word for him.
- Abusive Parents: He was not a good father to Marianette, and he doesn't seem to have treated Gregory/Geara much better in comparison.
- Ambiguous Situation: He and Sirius (Narcissas deceased husband) were actually the same person, but since he is known to have survived apparent deaths before, it is unknown if he truly died in the Wispy Tower fire. And if he didn't die, what he's up to in the present game has yet to be revealed.
- Archenemy: Was this to the Protectors of Aevium, and especially Nymiera.
- FaceHeel Turn: After finally renouncing his evil ways and having a family, Anatheas death makes him return to them.
- I Have Many Names: Alternates between being called Indriad and Vitus, the former being his name while in the cult and the latter being his name before that. He actually has a third alias, Sirius, which he used while being married to Narcissa and running the Radio Tower in Goldenleaf Town.
- Love Makes You Evil: He didn't take death of his wife Anathea lightly.
- Morality Chain: He rejoined his cult about 10 minutes after Anathea dies.
- Noble Demon: Gives you a fair fighting chance to escape from Chrysalis Manor with Venam and her friends due to being in a "forgiving mood". He also planned on sacrificing the four of you, and his own daughter as well, when you win the Gym battle with Maria.
- Parental Substitute: Was this to Gregory/Geara, but their relationship was far from affectionate.
GardevoirA differently-colored Gardevoir who lives with Maria, Vitus/Indriad, and Anathea Theolia. She orchestrates Anathea's death to get Vitus to return to the cult.
- An Arm and a Leg: Over the course of her fight in Version 11, she's reduced to first a torso, then to just a head.
- Curse: She's cursed by the shiny Mimikyu when she tries to kill Vivian, Cella, Anju, you, Aelita, and Melia.
- Disney Villain Death: Dies by her head falling into a pit of spikes, on purpose.
- Driven to Suicide: Indriad dumping her was the last straw, and she already realized her wrongs and that it's too late for her to be redeemed. Instead of coming out as The Atoner, she decides to put an end to herself by teleporting herself above the sanctuary's spikes to impale herself.
- Evil Counterpart: To Gossip Gardevoir from Pokémon Reborn, as they are both Gardevoir that can communicate with humans through telepathy, live with humans, are exceedingly powerful battlers, and practically worship the men they fight for; however, while Gossip Gardevoir is flirty and lively but generally harmless, Rejuvenation's Gardevoir is cold, cruel, malicious, and manipulative. The parallels only increase as the game continues; while Gossip Gardevoir can mega evolve with Randomus help, Indriads Gardevoir can become a dimensional rift.
- Greater-Scope Villain: She is responsible for Vitus/Indriad returning to the cult.
- Hero Killer: Oneshots Kanon's Salamence, and then seemingly kills him (he's revived, but Salamance is not), and also ruins the effects of Vivian's ritual, meaning that while she prevented the Bad Future from taking place, Storm-9 still happened.
- Hidden Depths: Before being found by Indriad, she worked in a circus in the Miera Region.
- Jerkass: Even before she tricks the corrupt cops into killing Anathea, she's shown to be very controlling of Maria's family.
- Manipulative Bitch: She bribes corrupt cops to destroy Vitus' house, killing Anathea and forcing him back into the cult, just because she believed she was holding him back.
- Talking Animal: Downplayed, as she talks through telepathy.
- Redemption Equals Death: Dies just after realising Indriad never loved her and succumbing to her Rift, reverting back to normal and considering herself a terrible being.
- Start of Darkness: In the middle of the final battle, she reveals her backstory. She used to be a Fun Personified for her town's people, until it became a thing of the past and she needed to go. She was abandoned as a result and grew even lonelier and more hurt, and Indriad promised to take care of her, persuading her with the promise of making her never lonely again.
- Tragic Monster: Used to be a normal Ralts who was abandoned by her trainer and found by Vitus, who extolled her great potential and corrupted her with dark magic, turning her into what she is now. After fighting to the brink of death as a Dimensional Rift, she tries to avenge him as her last act. However, before she can do so, he reveals he never loved her.
- Undying Loyalty: Played with very darkly, as she serves Vitus/Indriad, and arranged for his wife to die because she believed Anathea was holding him back.
- Walking Spoiler: Is the only major character in Maria's family who doesn't appear in the intro, and she has a major role in one of the villain's Start of Darkness.
Anathea TheoliaMaria's mother and Indriad's wife.
- The Bus Came Back: Her ghost reappears in when the player and company are storming the dungeon under Hiyoshi City. She helps by going into Rifts and pulling out those imprisoned there.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Invoked. Apparently, her hair used to be black, but the influence of something (hinted to be the Archetype) turned it blonde).
- Meaningful Name: Her name can mean grace of god, which is unsurprising due to her familys religious theme and her kind nature. Furthermore, the surname Theolia is likely derived from Theos, Greek for 'god'.
- Morality Chain: Apparently she was the thing that kept Vitus from coming back to the cult.
- Our Ghosts Are Different: Dies shortly after you meet her outside of the intro, but you still can communicate with her at times thanks to the Soul Stone.
- Someone that's implied to be her also speaks to Melia and Erin when they're bonding, and her/their voice causes them to realize they're siblings.
- Posthumous Character: Is long dead by the time the game starts, but her death is pivotal to the Church Of Theolia storyline and backstory. And thanks to the Soul Stone, she can still interact with the living at times.
- Power Dyes Your Hair: Her hair was originally black, but it became blonde due to the Archetypes influence.
- Small Role, Big Impact: Is seldom seen, but her death had a major impact in the story.
- The Lost Lenore: Her untimely death was the primary cause for Vitus retransformation into Indriad. This was invoked by Gardevoir, who knew how important she was to Vitus. During the Chrysalis manor segment, he calls her name and says he will soon join her and that it will all be over soon.
- Too Good for This Sinful Earth: A loving wife and mother, Anathea is one of the sweetest characters in the game. That is, until her death. According to Indriad, she was too innocent for this world, knowing little about its evils and dangers. Zigzagged, as the Soul Stone has let her stick around after she died.
Katsu BellarosaA famous scientist from Kugearen City and mother of Anastasia. She is also the CEO of Rejuvenation Co., a corporation wishing to restore the Miera region.
- Abusive Parents: Downplayed, but still present. In addition to her neglect, she frequently berates Anastasia. After Gardevoir kidnaps Maria and Anastasia fails to save her, Katsu calls a useless child. This leads a desperate Anastasia to run away to Route 4, the dangerous site of a meteor shower.
- Education Mama: She urges her daughter to study, depriving her of playtime and contact with children her age, outside of Maria, Anastasias tutor.
- My God, What Have I Done?: After Anastasia runs away, she realizes just how horrible of a parent she was being.
- Parental Neglect: Due to her demanding job, she rarely interacts with Anastasia, who has become shy and withdrawn as result.
- Meaningful Name: Katsu means victory in Japanese, a fitting name for a successful scientist and CEO.
VivianThe original Sensei of Sheridan Village, and one of the Protectors of Aevium.
- Heroic Sacrifice: She sacrificed herself to protect everyone from Storm-9.
- Reincarnation: The Garufa spell she used winded up reincarnating her, first as Taelia, then when Taelia was murdered, as Aelita.
- Sensor Character: She can feel everything that happens on the Earth. Such as people from other times coming and going from Kugearen City and Amberette Town.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple hair.
HazukiOne of the Protectors of Aevium, and the "guard" of Anju.
- Extra-ore-dinary: She appears to have an Aegislash.
TaeliaKeta's deceased wife, and thusly, Aelita's mother. Except, not quite...
- Baleful Polymorph: She was afflicted by Vivian's Madness, which gave her a pink-haired, violent, capricious alternate form whenever she felt strong emotions. At one point, she appeared to be half-human, half-spider.
- Doomed by Canon: Is this in Where Love Lies.
- I Hate Past Me: A variation: she never met Vivian for obvious reasons, but hated her because she felt as though she could never be herself, just a rip-off of Vivian. Cella constantly telling her how much she resembled Vivian didn't help, either.
- The Lost Lenore: To Keta.
- Mama Bear: She took on a Bisharp by herself, unarmed (though in her Super Mode) to save her daughter.
- Player Character: She's one in part of Where Love Lies.
- Reincarnation: She was Vivian's, and Aelita was hers.
- Weapon of Choice: Her Gallade. Keta uses him after her death, in the Amethyst Grotto battle.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has purple hair, like Vivian's and Aelita's.
NymieraThe leader of the Protectors of Aevium.
- Mysterious Past: She has some kind of long-term history with Indriad, who she despises. She also seems to know the player by the name Adrest.
- Starving Artist: Downplayed - she seems to make a living wage, but she hardly appears to be wealthy.
Deagan RoyerKenneth's brother, Amber's father and Aevium's former Dark-type leader.
- The Alcoholic: Used to drink heavily.
- Cain and Abel: He and Kenneth both threatened to kill each other at various points, though neither tried it.
- Casting a Shadow: Used to be the Dark-type Gym Leader.
- Disappeared Dad: To Amber, but he wanted to fix things, he just didn't get the chance to.
- Disney Villain Death: Died by falling down a waterfall and was impaled on a rock at the bottom, though no corpse is shown- just blood.
- Freudian Excuse: Felt that his father had abandoned them by dying, so he hated Kenneth, who wanted to be like their father.
- HeelFace Door-Slam: He died minutes after realising that he was a dick and trying to change.
- Weapon of Choice: His Weavile.
- You Are What You Hate: He raged at Kenneth for abandoning his family and ditching his responsibilities... after doing the exact same thing.
GriseldaAn ancient queen who died centuries ago. Her kingdom was where Goldenleaf Town is in the present day.
- Baleful Polymorph: She turned into a Giratina after dying, and is likely to be the Giratina that was under Wispy Tower.
- Betrayal by Offspring: Her daughter conspired with her sisters to poison her.
- Came Back Wrong: Rose from the dead and transformed into Giratina.
- God Save Us from the Queen!: Griselda loved her people and wanted the best for them, but her story makes it very clear that the people feared her as much as they loved and respected her.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: What she wanted was for the land to be at peace so her people could be safe. Her chosen method of achieving that was to conquer the universe so she'd control everything and there would be no war.
- Unstoppable Rage: After she Came Back Wrong, she started destroying everything and everyone she could, including her kingdom and her people. Her sisters, implied to be Spacea and Tiempa, had to exile Griselda/Giratina to the Distortion World to stop her rampage.
JanCo-owner of Gearen City and administrator of the Aevium League.
- Creator Cameo: Of the game's main designer.
- Expy: Of Ame, since they're both Author Avatars whose sole role in the game is to provide you with advice on how to handle each Gym Leader.
- Mission Control: He's the one that gives you advice on how to beat each Gym Leader.
Zumi RaiderCo-owner of Gearen City.
- Badass Family: Her siblings are Texen and Risa.

- False Friend: Was this to Melia and the Aevium League as a whole.
- Hidden Agenda Villain: Both who she is working for and what their goals are are unknown. However what is known is that she is neither part of Bladestar nor of Xen, and she is working to reverse Celines plan.
- Playing with Fire: Uses a lot of Fire-type Pokémon.
- Recurring Boss: So far she's fought four times throughout the course of the game, three times as the protagonist and once as Melia, with Madelis as a partner. Right after that she's also fought in a non-conventional battle with Sakitron.
- Robotic Reveal: The Amanda from the introduction to the game was replaced by a robot, with the intention of disrupting the Aevium league.
Lingering Regret NancyYour mother, who is kidnapped by Team Xen early on.
- Action Girl: When she battles alongside you during the castle arc, she uses a Lv. 65 Sylveon.
- Ambiguously Human: Various members of Team Xen call her things like a doll and 'it', and describe her as akin to a robot or cyborg. Crescent even says she shouldn't be able to feel emotions.
- Emotionless Girl: According to Madame X, she's not supposed to be able to feel love, making her sacrifice for the player surprising. At least to Team Xen.
- Heroic Sacrifice: She shields you from Madame X's blade, saving the protagonist.
- Weapon of Choice: Her Sylveon.
- The Unfought: Played with. While she dies before you get to properly fight her, you do get to team up with her shortly before she dies, and during the Litwick sidequest you fight a ghostly impostor with her team.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Pink like Aevia.
Piano GirlA lady who plays the piano on the S.S. Oceana.
- Badass Bystander: Is able to break a ship floor all by herself in order to save you from a Deoxys clone. Later on, she manages to be quite a thorn in the side of the guards at Blacksteeple Castle, and helps the player escape from their cell and start a jailbreak.
- The Bus Came Back: Shows up at Blacksteeple Castle, and later reappears working at Mika's Coffee in Grand Dream City.
- His Name Really Is "Barkeep": According to Jan, her full name is Piano Girl Piano Girl.
Doctor JenkelA Mad Scientist who lives in Gearen City, and who helps you recapture Shadow Pokemon if you don't catch them the first time. And also one of the top members of Team Bladestar.
- Always Someone Better: To ZEL in Pokemon Reborn (specifically EVE). The PULSE+ machine that he made is completely harmless when used on a Pokemon, in contrast to the PULSE machines of Pokemon Reborn. After you fight him, the Musharna he was using it on is not only unharmed, but is genuinely upset with you! Though it's later revealed that Musharna is having issues, every other case of a PULSE machine being used before this led to the death of the Pokemon it was used on.
- Mad Scientist: It's even in his battle name! Oddly, though, he's a fairly moral version of this trope.
- Only Sane Man: After Ryland leaves, he's the Bladestar Admin who isn't a victim of He Who Fights Monsters.
MamanThe kindhearted owner of the Lost Camp and Neveds wife.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Left her old life and family behind, knowing that she would eventually die, just so that her daughter could live.

- Beware the Nice Ones: After getting fed up with Adam and Damien refusing to try and talk their issues out, she goes full Glowing Eyes of Doom on them and flat-out orders them to start talking to each other again. They quickly comply.
- Identical Grandson: She looks almost identical to her ancestor, Nymiera.
- I Have Many Names: She first introduces herself as April in the Amethyst Cave sidequest, then calls herself Krystal during the train ride to Grand Dream City. Damien reveals her real name is Alexandra, which she starts using herself when the player meets her in Sashila Village.
- One Degree of Separation: Judging by her reaction on the train to Venam wondering where/who the Champion is and what they're doing about all the issues in Aevium, it's possible she either knows who the Champion is, or is the Champion herself.
- Olympus Mons: She naturally has the counterpart to her brother's Latios, Latias.
- Psychic Powers: She has a theme around this, and she even managed to stop a train using only her powers.
- Royal Blood: Her ancestor is Queen Nymiera, and she looks just like her.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Bails out of the train to Grand Dream City the instant she realizes that Damien was following her.
- Seer: Aside from stopping the train with her Psychic Powers, she also saw the future where it might crash due to the tracks being cut and stopped it from taking place.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: According to Damien, she was this while she had Nim with her.
- All of the Other Reindeer: She was bullied as a child for being smarter than the other students and for being an orphan, and practically lived at the Grand Dream City library.
- Badass Boast: "No... I do have a purpose. And for that purpose, I promise you, I won't die. I refuse to die... I cannot... I REFUSE TO DIE HERE!" as the Grand Dream Ball blows up around her.
- Casting a Shadow: She owns an Absol, and it seems to be her Signature Mon.
- Deadpan Snarker: Of the overly blunt and snarky variety.
- Hidden Depths: When asked if she would sacrifice one she loves so that millions could live, she says that while it'd suck, she'd sacrifice the one she loves because it'd be better to not have the blood of millions on her hands... but on the other hand, the blood of one can stain one's hands just as badly as millions.
- Long-Lost Relative: She's the older sister of Alice, Allen and Melia.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to Aelita for running off and sticking Erin with the need to search for her for several weeks and being left homeless, and then another while inside Aelita's Dimensional Rift. The latter doubles as a Shut Up, Hannibal!.
- Signature Mon: Her Absol.
Mosely CarmicleA girl the player rescues in Goldenleaf Town, who helps you out in return.
- Abusive Parents: Her parents wanted her to become the head nurse in the Hospital of Hope. Mosely wanted to go on a journey with Pokemon. Her parents were furious that she wouldn't blindly follow their wishes, even slapping her at one point.
- Bad Liar: During the sidequest in which she invades the Hospital Of Hope, she claims to have never been there before, despite knowing its entire layout.
- The Bus Came Back: Turns up in the Bad Future as the leader of a group of children. In the main timeline, she shows up in a sidequest at the Hospital of Hope.
- Damsel in Distress: The first time the player meets her, she's about to be lynched by three Goldenleaf Town residents for being an outsider who stole from them.

- Sadistic Choice: She successfully steals medicine for Maman, but Isha tells her it's the last one left and if she takes it, a little girl will die, whereas if she leaves it, he'll drop the charges for breaking in and stealing the medicine and let her and the player go. She winds up leaving the medicine behind.
- Weapon of Choice: Her Pangoro.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She's claustrophobic.
ReinaRen's twin sister.
- Abusive Parents: She says her mother hates her (this doesn't seem to be the case, though).
- A Day in the Limelight: Gets a lot of screen time in Versions 11 and 12, where she and the player, Huey, and Ren go to the desert and back in time, then when you're going into Zone Zero.
- Big Brother Worship: Has been looking for her brother ever since he ran away, but so far has had no luck.
- As it turns out, it's not so much worship as concern - she states that fortune-teller said to her mother, before she was born, that her children (her and Ren) would have a fate - one would fight for a bright future, and the other would fight against it.
- Character Development: Travelling around Aevium looking for Ren helped her grow up a lot. When she shows up in Grand Dream City she's a lot more confident and carefree.

- Signature Mon: Her Swoobat.

- The Lost Lenore: Souta was hers. And in a nonromantic example, Vivian was this too.
- Parental Substitute: She's the closest thing Aelita had to a mother, and was a similar figure to Taelia.
- Properly Paranoid: When first meeting Kenneth in Where Love Lies, she freaks out over the dangers of Taelia bringing a stranger to their home. Kenneth wasn't a danger, but the ruffians who followed him were.

- Big Eater: According to Ren.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Can be briefly seen in Teila Resort alongside Rune when you first reach it.

- Signature Mon: His Flareon.
- Stepford Smiler: His Rift reveals that he's not half as optimistic as he seems.
- Tagalong Kid: He and Reina spend half of Version 11 tagging along even after being told not to.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Lavender.
- Unwitting Muggle Friend: Despite being Rhodea's friend and roommate, he doesn't know about Spacea and Tiempa. He later finds out about the whole time-travel thing alongside Ren and Reina, though.
RuneHuey's sister and Rhodea and Lavender's friend and roommate.

Risa Elizabeth Raider
- The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard: Her Jigglypuff Tuff-Puff has both a special sprite and an illegal moveset, which includes Draco Meteor. Curiosly, said move set is the same as Freyas Naganadels (at least on the normal difficulty level - it's different on Intense). Its base stats, however, are always the same as Naganadels.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Beats Melia 3-0 in an Offscreen Moment of Awesome.
- Hero of Another Story: Fought off Team Xen whenever they made an appearance around Grand Dream City.
- Leitmotif: She's actually got her own theme song.
- Living in a Furniture Store: Lampshaded by Huey. Despite her and Talon's apartment being occupied by a couple of college students, it's conspicuously clean and neat, lacking any signs of personality.
- Nice Girl: Never anything but pleasant (except to Team Xen and its members).
- Noodle Incident: It has yet to be revealed why she hates Team Xen so much.
- Renaissance Man: Full-time actor, cheerleader and student at Axis High, among other things.
- Try to Fit THAT on a Business Card!: See that stuff in Renaissance Man? She also is responsible for fighting Team Xen, and is working as a director for her own original movie (which she offers Ana a part in).
- Unexplained Recovery: She was apparently terminally ill, but was somehow cured.
The PuppetmasterA mysterious being that resides inside the enigmatic Toybox, and can only be interacted with if you happen to have a nightmare while you're in Grand Dream City. Since Lavender has an asthma attack and gets rushed to the hospital, you fight his puppets Neon and Magenta as the Psychic-type leaders instead.
- Dark Is Not Evil: He wears a pretty creepy mask, and he lives in a place called 'Nightmare City' but he's not a bad person. He does try to help the protagonist and Aelita along on their quest, though he only speaks in weird riddles, meaning they don't understand him anyways.
- Psychic Powers: He's able to drag dozens of people into a Mental World, Nightmare City, while they're sleeping. However, the implication is that he can only do this at night/while said people are asleep, and he flatly says that people have to come there of their own will.
- Reality Warper: He was capable of dragging Karen, Alice and Allen out of the Unown Dimension and into the real world. He also has his own little pocket dimension called Nightmare City.
- Signature Move: Psyche Terror, a multi target move that has a chance to burn.
- Trickster Mentor: He often speaks in riddles and almost never goes straight to the point, but he claims that him doing so is important for both the protagonist's and Aelita's development. He also has a habit of sending the main characters various items and cryptic clues at points in the story.
AliceA young girl you first meet in the Unown Dimension, she's later freed by the Puppet Master and mailed to the Grand Dream City Penthouse.
- Alice Allusion: Her name and outfit are obviously reminiscent of Alice, not to mention the fact that she spent time in another world.
- Blue and Orange Morality: In Version 12, she seems to have the belief that everything is part of the story she writes, and the people around her are just characters she created. To be fair, she was in the Unown Dimension her entire life before that, where this was actually the case. She gets better, though.
- The Dog Was the Mastermind: Version 12 reveals that she is the one behind 'Team Trappus', which was a diversion meant to distract Allen so he wouldn't leave the Unown Dimension.
- Twin Switch: You never really see her and Allen together at first in the Unown Dimension. This changes after they are sent out by the Puppet Master.
- Two Beings, One Body: She and her brother Allen were stuck sharing a body in the Unown Dimension.
AllenA young boy you first meet in the Unown Dimension, he's later freed somehow by the Puppet Master and mailed to the Grand Dream City Penthouse.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: He's the logical, responsible sibling to Alice's less-than-logical approach.
- Gilded Cage: Points out to Alice that the Unown Dimension was more of a prison than a paradise.
- Twin Switch: You never really see him and Alice together at first in the Unown Dimension. This changes after they are sent out by the Puppet Master.
DylanA man living in the Underground of Grand Dream City, who you first meet there. He strikes up a friendship with you and the android Ana.
- Abusive Parents: He says his grandfather was this to him. Their relationship ended after Dylan punched him in the eye so hard he went blind.
- Informed Ability: Downplayed - he says that Ana, whose only Pokemon is a level 25 Magnemite at the time, has a better chance against you than him (your Pokemon should be around 80 at this point). So he's... got to be absurdly good as a Pokemon trainer, frankly, but you haven't seen him in action yet.
- Later on, it appears he has a Gyarados.
- Making a Splash: His grandfather helped him run a fishing competition, and his only seen pokemon is a Gyarados.
- My God, You Are Serious: Initially, he doesn't believe Ana when she says she got a part in a movie.
- Not So Above It All: When he finds out you know Risa Raider, he asks you to "put in a good word for him".
Android Girl Ana
- Action Girl: She has Maggy zap a Bladestar Grunt with Thunder Wave (A Call-Back to when Dylan told her to do that if she ever got in trouble).
- Eating Optional: Being an android has advantages.
- Eyeless Face: She doesn't have eyes.
- Luminescent Blush: When she realizes she's entered a cook-off.
- Nice Girl: She's never anything but friendly, even if she's still learning about the world.
- Oblivious Guilt Slinging: Not quite "guilt", but she appears to be unintentionally reminding Dylan of his old "friend" Natalia by accident.
- Oh, Crap!: When she challenges Gigiorno, she doesn't realize until after she makes the challenge that it is not a Pokemon battle, it's a cook-off.
- Signature Mon: Maggy, a unique-looking Magnemite that Dylan gave her.
Team Anti-AssistA group who wants to shut down the Help Centers, to get people to stop helping other people. Never a serious threat, but they can be very annoying and persistent.
- Goldfish Poop Gang: Team Xen and Team Bladestar are both major threats to the stability of Aevium, maybe the world itself. These guys? Not so much.
- Hypocrite: When they reappear at Castle Zygara, the reason they're there... is because they're helping somebody to get paid a lot of money. Familiar? Yeah, they don't seem to be aware of the comparisons.
- Theme Naming: After the Gems from Steven Universe, pretty commonly.
CeraAngies right hand woman.
- The Cameo: Makes one in Grand Dream City, saying that she will see the player again soon.
- The Dragon: Is this to Angie, remaining loyal to her even after she is frozen.
- Olympus Mons: Manages to capture the Groudon in the Garufan chamber.
- Sanity Slippage: Goes through this in her efforts to resurrect her master.
- Undying Loyalty: To Angie, who she refers to as Lady and Master. After Angie is defeated, she leads the effort to revive her.
- The Ace: He's a legitimately amazing doctor.
- Axe-Crazy: He's revealed to be a total lunatic in Version 12.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He's not part of Team Xen, but he's in a partnership with Cassandra, who is. He's also hiding a child in the depths of the Hospital of Hope, and may be keeping her prisoner, along with a lab where horrible experiments are carried out. He states that all he really cares about is his research.
- Body Surf: He wants to take over Lavender's body, and bring both of his identities with him.
- Fallen Hero: He started out as a genuinely amazing doctor who wanted to help everyone he could. But as time went on, his job became more and more difficult, and he soon became so obsessed with his incredibly high success rate that it became his sole motivation, and he turned to shady acts to make sure it never fell. Things only went downhill from there.
- Gone Horribly Right: When Isiah turned 45, he became ill with a terminal disease for which there was no known cure. He wound up taking over his son's body to buy more time to find a cure. But when his son turned 45, the exact same disease that killed him the first time struck again.
- Jerkass: He is a dick. See Maman's backstory, where she and her daughter fell ill with the same disease, but Maman's case was much worse. Isha cut her a deal: he'd find a cure and give it to her daughter for free, but in exchange, Maman had to cut ties with everyone she knew and abandon society... because Isha wouldn't be able to cure her as well, and then he wouldn't have a 100% success rate anymore. And Maman couldn't afford to say no, because she couldn't afford the hospital payments.
- Mad Doctor: Held Lavender prisoner in the Hospital of Hope, and lied to everyone that she was sick when she wasn't. Lavender said he experimented on her, which turns out to be true. He also says in Version 12 that he left everyone in Grand Dream City some kind of 'gift' that will turn on them, implied to be the vaccines.
- Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: The disease that afflicted him originally is also afflicting him now. And even he isn't sure if it's because he "reconstructed his brain too well", because his son caught the same disease he did thanks to bad luck genetically, or a combination of both.
- The Medic: A superb one. He reportedly has a 100% success rate.
- Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Aside from working with Team Xen, he has also done committed other shady acts, some of which just to maintain his success rate. These include holding Lavender and Franchesca prisoner and forcing Maman to leave her family and life behind in exchange for treating her daughter. As Isiah he was disgraced due to malpractice against his son, who unbeknownst to everyone was forced to share his body with his father.
- Weapon of Choice: His Dusknoir.
- Two Beings, One Body: In order to prevent his death, Isiah transferred his consciousness to his sons body. As a result of a mishap, the two now share the latters body.
The Princess/MelanieThe despotic ruler of a Bad Future accidentally created by the protagonist. She's also said timeline's version of Melia.
- Alas, Poor Villain: Her demise in the "Try to Escape" and "Do Nothing" versions of the Bad Future arc's ending feature this. In the "Try to Escape" ending, she starts panicking when she realizes that her consciousness is fading, and her last words are apologizing to her father for failing. In the "Do Nothing" ending, she instead realizes as she's being obliterated that perhaps things would have gone better had she acted more benevolently, and quietly admits defeat.
- Arc Villain: Of the Bad Future arc.
- The Bad Guy Wins: The only actual villain in the game to actually succeed with their plans, if only in the "Hand It Over" ending.
- The Bus Came Back: Version 12 reveals that she is still alive in Melia's subconscious, influencing Melia's emotions.
- Despotism Justifies the Means: Orchestrated the destruction of the already badly damaged world just so she could rule over the survivors and use them as her playthings.
- Enfant Terrible: She's only a child, but she's got what little remains of the world under her thumb.
- Evil Me Scares Me: She's an evil version of Melia.
- The Unfought: After Melia awakens, she utterly obliterates Melanie and her Yveltal, with no need for the player to do anything.
- Villainous Breakdown: In the "Do Nothing" ending, after Melia exposes and foils her grand scheme, she throws a temper tantrum, summons Yveltal, and tries to murder Melia with her Yveltal.
- Walking Spoiler: Seeing as how she's the main antagonist of the Bad Future arc, not to mention she triggers Melia's Traumatic Superpower Awakening, this is a given.
- Badass Baritone: According to Reina, he has a seductive and silky smooth voice.
- Co-Dragons: He and Freya are working with Madame X to some degree. Why this is hasn't been revealed yet.
- Early-Bird Cameo: He gives you the emotion powder in Valor Mountain, long before he truly becomes involved in the story.
- Hidden Agenda Villain: His and his partner's goals and motives are completely unknown, even more so than the other antagonists.
- Mysterious Past: Nothing is known about his past. He apparently has some kind of history with Crescent.
- Mysterious Stranger: Little is known about him.
- Starfish Aliens: He uses an Ultra Beast, Xurkitree.
- Time Master: He is capable of traveling through time, seemingly at will.
- You Can't Fight Fate: He tells Ren that everything is on a predetermined path, or at least, should be.
- The Chessmaster: In Where Love Lies, Freya engineers Kenneths life so that he falls in love with Taelia and awakens Amethyst Grotto with her. Once that is done, she cuts all ties with him.
- Hidden Agenda Villain: Her and Kieran's goals and motives are completely unknown, even more so than the other antagonists.
- Lack of Empathy: She doesnt care about ruining Kenneths life, claiming it was necessary in the grand scheme of things. In the present, she repeatedly tells Aelita that nothing she does is personal, it's just business.
- Master of Illusion: Using her Beheeyem, Freya creates illusions to mess with those around her. In Where Love Lies, said illusions completely ruin Kenneths life. She later uses it to trick you into fighting alongside her against Melia and Aelita (though you can still attack her pokemon instead of theirs).
- Mysterious Past: Little is known about her past. It's implied that she is Freya, one of the ten victims of the meltdown that destroyed the Miera region and a member of the International Police.
- Mysterious Stranger: Little is known about her.
- Nothing Personal: How she feels about what she does. Kenneth and Aelita both beg to differ.
- Starfish Aliens: She has an Ultra Beast, Naganadel.
- Time Master: Like her partner, she is seemingly capable of traveling through time at will.
- Weapon of Choice: Beheeyem, which she uses to mess with people's memories and create illusions.
Thomas Blakeory JrThe rich scion of the Blakeory family, and Saki's step-brother.
Spacea and TiempaTwo women who wield special powers.
- Big Good: They believe that someone (most likely Team Xen) are intending to recreate the catastrophe that happened years ago, so they're recruiting people across space and time and giving them Pokemon so they can make their own team. Good Is Not Nice, though.
- Blue and Orange Morality: Melia says they don't have our understanding of "good and bad". In Version 10, they tell her that while they could heal everyone who was turned to stone, they won't, because they weren't told to.
- God's Hands Are Tied: They state that can't interfere directly with mortal lives unless they're ordered to, and they've got the power levels to back up the "God" part of this. Also, they can only show up during a solar eclipse and a few days after one takes place.
- The Man Behind the Man: A heroic example- it's revealed in Version 10 that they're not actually the ones in charge of their team, they're more like admins, following the orders of someone they call 'Her Majesty'. Also, they intended for you and Melia to be sent to the Bad Future to trigger the latter's Traumatic Superpower Awakening, and they don't seem to regret all the emotional issues this caused as a toll.
- The Needs of the Many: They emphasise this strongly to Melia, saying that it's the principle they live by.
- Not So Different: Melia bitterly compares them to Team Xen, saying that they use the same methods and just want to use her.
- Physical Goddess: Spacea and Tiempa are apparently manifestations of space and time respectively, and can transport people and objects across time and space at will, either in person or via the Time Crystals.
- Was Once a Man: They were the sisters of Griselda, who conspired to poison her after Griselda became power-mad and refused to stop waging war.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: They were intending to kill Jenner after he gave them Melia, but things didn't work out like that.
IrvinA professor living in Amberette Town.
- I Own This Town: A heroic example: Amberette Town is more or less Spacea and Tiempa's base, and everyone living there is on Irwin's payroll.
- Number Two: To Spacea and Tiempa. Since they can only appear when there's an eclipse, he's more or less in charge when they're not around.
MeliaSee her entry under 'Rivals'.
- Didn't Think This Through: Basically why he lost his Salamence.
- Fake Memories: He created a new personality for himself in the past to conceal Nymiera's location.
- Fish out of Temporal Water: He's currently in the present after meeting back up with Melia.
- Good Is Dumb: He's a really nice, friendly, and heroic person. He's also kind of an idiot, as evidenced by how he attempts to take on an entire cult (led by a very powerful Pokémon, no less) with just a Salamence.
- Happiness in Slavery: He repeatedly says that he only exists to serve, no matter how many times Nymiera and Alexandra tell him otherwise.
- Loves the Sound of Screaming: Played for Laughs, when he gives Huey a Jump Scare in Hiyoshi City.
- Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: Chucks a tantrum and flounces off to find April/Alexandra after being told he can't go back to the past.
- Servant Race: He's not human at all. He's the product of Garufan magic, a sapient spell created to serve.
- Teleporters and Transporters: Unless hindered, he can teleport to wherever his master is.
KarrinaA gang leader in Gearen City.
- Big Brother Is Watching: Has surveillance over a good deal of Gearen City.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Version 11 reveals that Spacea and Tiempa were intending to have Professor Jenner killed after he gave them Melia. Katrina appears to have known this all along, but never said anything about it to Melia.
- Break Them by Talking: Does this to Karen, calling her a hypocrite who only wants Karrina to move on from her parents' deaths so she'll stop reminding Karen of her mistakes.
- Chekhov's Gunman: She initially helps you get to the sewers. Later on Melia, Venam and you will "borrow" her boat to get to West Gearen while it's blocked off. She's also a descendant of the Garufa.
- Heroic Lineage: While she herself is at worst a Jerk with a Heart of Gold, she's descended from the Garufa. Her parents, on the other hand, were the last keepers of the Hidden Library before Karen killed them.
- Hidden Depths: Her parents used to take care of the Hidden Library. Not only that, but she's also part of Spacea and Tiempa's organization.
- Hit Me, Dammit!: When she finally runs into Karen at Castle Zygarde, part of the reason she's angry is because Karen refuses to fight back, or do anything more than dodge her and her pokemon's attacks.
- If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him: If the player stops her from killing Karen, she declares that she won't lower herself to killing Karen.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Bans the player, Melia and Venam from West Gearen because she thinks they intend to blow it up. Once the crisis has been dealt with, she's still livid, but accepts that the trio were there to do the right thing. She pretty clearly threatens you to not kick her in the head again, though.
- You Killed My Father: And her mother, as it happens. This is the entire reason that she hates Karen.
Crescent/DahliaA woman with a Gothitelle that's involved in the story. Seems to have known Nancy.
- Black and White Insanity: Team Xen are bad, therefore everyone in it deserves what they get. Like getting pushed off a cliff when suicidal.
- The Corrupter: Her conversation with Ren is heavily implied to be the catalyst for him joining Team Xen. This was revealed to be true, but it turns out that she lied to Ren, telling him she could bring Melia back to life if he was a double agent for her. Once he found out that Melia was never dead, he cut ties with her.
- Additionally, She brainwashes Nim and sent her off to turn people to stone.
- Her attempts to convince the protagonist to ditch the group and try to live a normal life away from them may also support this. Whether or not she just wants them out of the way or if she's genuinely concerned about their well-being still remains to be seen, however, since an easy to miss scene in the game's opening implies the latter.
- Even Melia seems to be influenced by her,as after her above rage against the mentor with Spacea and Tiempa, Melia considers Crescent to be more trustworthy and considers listening to her advice.
- Dragon with an Agenda: Downplayed, but her Gothitelle seems to not always obey her, or takes liberties with her orders....Why are you laughing? Gothitelle, what did you do?
- Foreshadowing: She appears in Nightmare City near the Toy Box, saying repeatedly "not much time left" and "soon... soon...".
- Greater-Scope Villain: Whether she's bad or not is up to debate, but she certainly is up to something, considering that she interfered in Spacea and Tiempa's matters, brainwashed Nim for unknown reasons, and got Ren to join Team Xen to spy for her.
- Manipulative Bastard: As shown by the above examples, she is remarkably good at deceiving and controlling others to do her bidding; often hiding the truth, which is most apparent in her conversation with Ren.
- Mysterious Past: Where she came from and who she really is hasn't been revealed. In Version 12, it's revealed that she and the mysterious figures have been fighting for some time, and they apparently know her as 'Dahlia'.
- Mysterious Woman: A rogue member of Spacea and Tiempa's group.
- Poisonous Friend: Is this towards the MC for unknown reasons. Her first two Establishing character moments have her stating all she wants to see the MC smile, and sending Jenner to a pocket dimension for getting the MC involved with fighting Team Xen in addition to Jenner being a member of Team Xen. She repeatedly tempts and implores the MC to quit fighting Team Xen and live a normal life throughout the story and saves them in spite of them refusing her. Even when she turns Nim into Lorna, Crescent ensures Lorna would not target the MC but their friends, in true Poisonous friend fashion. In general, Crescent is cold,condescending and manipulative but whenever she interacts with the MC one on one, she's genuinely friendly and comforting despite orchestrating their friend's misery.
- Room Full of Crazy: Her home has a bunch of photos of people, including the player.
- Signature Mon: Her shiny Gothitelle.
- We Used to Be Friends: She and Melia were good friends before they went rogue. Crescent gave Melia her Ralts.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Melia speculates in Version 11 that this may have been the reason why Crescent went rogue- she found out something she wasn't meant to know, and Spacea and Tiempa intended to kill her for it.
Rhodea/SandraGrand Dream City's community manager.
- Dark and Troubled Past: In the past, her father Rafael, the mayor of Hiyoshi City, was imprisoned by his own citizens after they were turned against him by Thomas Blakeory.
- Nice Girl: Gives the player, Melia, Kanon and Venam a place to stay without being asked.
- Rapid Aging: Zig-zagged. She grew up normally, but Kanon knew her as a nine year old, only for them to meet again when Rhodea is a full-grown adult. It's theorized this is because she "came back" to the present several years before you and the others did. Also, in Version 11 she's seen alive in Hiyoshi City before Grand Dream City even existed which would make her more than fifty years old chronologically.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After she realizes that she's in Hiyoshi City again in V12, she leaves ASAP.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Grey/black with the bottom part dyed dark red.
SoutaSee his entry under Gym Leaders.
Dimensional Rifts in General
- Eldritch Abomination: Dear god, yes.
- Foil: To the PULSE Pokemon from Pokémon Reborn. They both act as Evil Conterparts to Mega Evolution that the main antagonists are using, but while the PULSE Pokemon were created by technology and usually have a purpose beyond "sentient weapon of mass destruction" (for example, stimulating plant growth or polluting a lake), the Dimensional Rift Pokemon were made through supernatural means and their primary function is to be sentient weapons.
- Lovecraftian Superpower: They're incredibly powerful, but all that power has warped their bodies and minds.
- Tragic Monster: It's made clear that the Pokemon turned into Dimensional Rifts are suffering horribly in their new state, but the only way to stop them (at least normally) is to kill them. Notably averted with the Dimensional Rift Carnivine, as it actually enjoys its new form.
- It's implied that the creation of Rift Matter and Dimensional Rifts is linked in some way to the Garufa. How it happens isn't clear, though.
Code:Evo (Dimensional Rift Gyarados)
- The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard: It actually has a unique secondary typing: The Dimension type. Said typing makes it resist several types that get boosted by the Dimensional Rift field, and its one weakness is reduced to neutral damage due to its primary Water-typing.
- Mind Hive: As a school of Magikarp fused into one being, this is a given.
- Paper Tiger: Downplayed. It's still strong, but it's relatively weak for a Dimensional Rift.
Code:Materna (Dimensional Rift Galvantula)
- Mama Bear: Even in this state, all it wants is to protect its children, which were scattered throughout the cave alongside it.
- Multiple Head Case: Three, to be specific.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Its current design is some sort of spider-scorpion-cerberus thing.
- Playing with Fire: Prior to Version 10, it had a secondary Fire-typing, though this was ultimately removed in favor of the Poison-typing mentioned below.
- Poisonous Person: Drops its secondary Bug-typing for a Poison-typing.
- The Scapegoat: Was placed in Amethyst Cave by Crescent to cover up Melia's disappearance, and ultimately gets blamed, transformed, and killed as a result.
Code:Statia (Dimensional Rift Volcanion)
- Goo Goo Godlike: Despite being an infant, it's stiill incredibly powerful.
- Load-Bearing Boss: Killing it causes a catastrophic meltdown that ends up destroying Team Xen's Base in Carotos Mountain.
Code:Sarpa (Dimensional Rift Carnivine)
- Cursed with Awesome: Its view on its status as a Dimensional Rift; it doesn't really care that it's been warped into a horrible monster, and in fact happily embraces the new form given to it by Zetta.
- Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: it gains a secondary Dragon-typing upon its transformation.
- Snakes Are Sinister: Takes on a more serpentine appearance after its transformation.
Code: Drifio (Dimensional Rift/Pulse Ferrothorn)
- Lightning Bruiser: In its secondary form, it loses hp, but gets an enormous boost in speed and attack.
- Mighty Glacier: In its first form, it's absurdly bulky, but also very slow.
- Playing with Fire: Its Grass typing is replaced by a Fire typing, to go with the Volcanic field it is fought on.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Downplayed, since at first it has enough hp that even ground attacks aren't guaranteed to cause a One-Hit Kill, and its secondary form is fast and strong enough that it can outpace most ground types.
Code: Bella (Dimensional Rift Regirock/Aelita)Created by Cella fully unlocking the chains around Aelita's heart that held back the Garufa Curse known as Vivian's Madness, Aelita has been corrupted by the darkness of her own life, Vivian's, and Taelia's combined.
- Determinator: The Savagery ability Code: Bella carries boosts both Attack and Special Attack at the end of turns that it's hit, and it will keep hitting harder and harder until it's knocked out.
- Dishing Out Dirt: Has a Rock/Fighting typing, and summons several mutated Golems as backup.
- Fragile Speedster: In utter contrast to Regirock's usual approach, Code: Bella has absurdly high Special Attack and Speed (and her attack stats are boosted by Savagery), but at best mediocre defenses and hp.
- "I Know You Are in There Somewhere" Fight: The purpose of unlocking the "chains" was so that the curse could be drawn out by you and Erin and so that Melia could then use her powers to destroy it for good.
- Superpowered Evil Side: Aelita, previously subject to Puny Earthlings, gets a power boost sufficient to put her "level" in the 70s-80 from this.
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others:Aelita is the only fully human dimensional rift.
Code: Angelus (Dimensional Rift Gardevoir)
- Boss Subtitles: Angel Of Death
- Casting a Shadow: Has a primary dark type.
- Determinator: Continues fighting even after being defeated twice, being hit by Rens cannon, Reinas Swoobat and Hueys Flareon. What finally takes her down is Indriads betrayal.
- Fallen Angel: Has the appearance of one, and is a corrupted form of Gardevoir, which takes cues from guardian angels.
- Yin-Yang Bomb: Its typing is Dark/Fairy.
Code: Gorna (Dimensional Rift Hippowdon/Gloria)
- Chekhov's Gunman: First seen as a Hippopotas in the past in V11, she is fought one version later as a Hippowdon.
- Dual Boss: Somehow splits into two separate Hippowdon, (the other is called Manuel).
- Mighty Glacier: Has absurdly high health, Attack, and Defense. And their starting ability, Accumulation, has Gloria and Manuel both possessing three stacks of Stockpile at all times (and with Spit Up and Swallow, the moveset to use it effectively), meaning that you're going to be fighting a battle of endurance. They're absurdly slow, however.
- Poisonous Person: She's part Poison-type due to the Rift Matter.
- Tragic Monster: Like Garbodor, Gloria's not really that malicious. And like Garbodor, you can save her by showing Ren, Melia, and Audino the journal.
Code: Remembrance (Dufaux/Celesia Altair and Light the Rotom)
- Came Back Wrong: What happened to both Celesia and Light. During Lorias attempt to resurrect her granddaughter, her soul was fused with Light the Rotoms, which was also in the well where she died, creating the vengeful Dufaux.
- Meaningful Name: Dufaux means of/from the fake, a hint that his true name is not that.
- Vengeful Ghost: Of Celesia and Light, who were denied the peace of death and now wish to destroy the Altair family name.
- Big Damn Heroes: Saves you and Melia from Zetta and the Dimensional Rift Gyrados.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Seemingly appears only as a Giant Space Flea from Nowhere boss, but then saves you and Melia from a Hopeless Boss Fight, and reappears as the source of the noxious gas over West Gearen.
- No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Pretty much how it got turned into a Dimensional Rift. It saved you from Zetta and the Dimensional Rift Gyrados, but was transformed into a Dimensional Rift by Zetta in the process.
- Non-Malicious Monster: After it gets turned into a Dimensional Rift, it doesn't actually attack anybody who doesn't attack it first. This arguably makes it even more pitiable.
- Poisonous Person: It's a giant blob of sentient trash, what did you expect?
- Tragic Monster: Gets turned into a Dimensional Rift by Zetta, forcing you, Melia, and Venam to put it down in order to save West Gearen. Fortunately, you can save it, but doing so is somewhat convoluted.
Mewtwo/DrannaA Mewtwo that was captured by Team Xen and corrupted into a shadow Pokémon by Madelis. Later gets purified by Crescent, and is befriended and nicknamed by her.
- Because You Were Nice to Me: Why it ends up siding with Crescent.
- Heroic Willpower: Manages to will itself through the Shadowfication process after you fight it.
- Hopeless Boss Fight: The fight against it is this; while it is possible to stall it out once it enters hyper mode, you're most likely going to get curb-stomped.
- It Can Think: Seems like any other Pokémon at first, but after it manages to fight through the shadowification process it reveals itself to be able to speak (telepathically, but still).
- Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: After the shadowification process begins to wear off, it instantly turns on Madelis.
- Talking Animal: Downplayed, since it talks through telepathy.
Braixen/DelphaSaki's friend and ally.
- Brought Down to Normal: She loses her translation device after Version 9. Upon evolving, she no longer needs it.
- Childhood Friends: With Saki. Once they established that Saki preferred Steel-types and Braixen didn't want to evolve, they decided to be friends, not trainer and Pokemon.
- Deadpan Snarker: Very much so.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: She's the phlegmatic.
- Meaningful Rename: Version 12 reveals that she was experimented upon by the Blakeory Corporation in a way that made her weaker than usual as a Fennekin and Braixen, but much stronger as a Delphox. Upon evolving, she says she's like a Delphox, but not the same as one, and as such names herself Delpha- close to Delphox, but not the same.
- Non-Action Guy: She's not a fighter.
- Took a Level in Badass: In V12, she finally evolves to a Delphox, names herself Delpha, and is now roughly level 85.
- Uncertain Doom: Is missing as of Version 9. It is revealed in V11 that she was held captive and experimented on in the secret basement of the Hospital of Hope, having lost her translation device beforehand.
- "World of Cardboard" Speech: Has one in Version 12, just before she evolves and proceeds to kick ass.
GiratinaA Giratina that appears several times throughout the story.
- Baleful Polymorph: The story told in the Wispy Ruins implies that Giratina used to be a human woman- Griselda, an ancient queen who was betrayed and poisoned by her own family, but rose from the dead, transformed into Giratina and wreaked havoc across her kingdom, before finally being sealed in the Distortion World. Version 11 confirms this, revealing also that Goldenleaf Town was built on Griselda's former kingdom.
- Berserk Button: It gets very irate when Lavender takes its silence as a sign of compliance, but seems content with her changing 'compliance' to 'co-operation between two equal groups'. Given its history, Giratina's refusal to be seen as anyone's inferior makes sense.
- Butt-Monkey: Assuming there's only one Giratina in the game, this one was targeted by a group at Wispy Tower aiming to use it to make a new world, then it was later captured by Geara, and then after Crescent and Dranna freed it, it got captured by Isha and held prisoner underground.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After helping Lavender defeat the doctors at the Hospital of Hope, it unceremoniously vanishes to an unknown location.
AudinoAn Audino that met Aelita on her journey to the Springs of Aevium, and came with her. Is capable of sustaining Mega Evolution for an extended time period on her own.
- Combat Medic: Subverted. While she's likely capable of fighting, the lack of a Pokemon Center in Zone Zero and the Badlands means that you can't afford to have her fighting with you.
- The Medic: Her main function while she's traveling with you, Ren, and Aelita during V12 is to keep everyone in fighting condition. She's even capable of purifying Gloria of Rift Matter!
- Super Mode: She starts out Mega Evolved when you first meet her, and reverts back to her normal self after helping Gloria.
