The local Pokémon Professor of Kalos. He specializes in Mega Evolution and change.
- Entertainingly Wrong: He assumes that he got exactly what Froakie tried to tell him about the kind of trainer he was looking for: namely, that he wanted a trainer with experience instead of a rookie. Froakie disagreed.
- Handsome Lech: From Froakie's inner monologue, he's heavily implied to be this.
- Hot Scientist: Apparently the female senators and deputies of Kalos think so, since they're always willing to help him economically.
Future Gym Leader of Lumiose City, who specializes in Electric-Type Pokémon. Also an aspiring inventor.
- Child Prodigy: As early as age 6, he was capable of building toys on his own.

- Papa Wolf: Belmondo kidnapping his son made him so enraged that he broke his arm, warning him not to try something like that ever again.

- Shipper on Deck: Really wants someone to marry her brother.
A scientist working for a faction in the T.A.T.O. government whose supporters are wary of a potential attack from the Ranger Nations. Attempts to recruit Clemont for their cause, but when Meyer refuses, he resorts to kidnap him.

- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Apparently tries to paint himself as this, but it's implied he might have ulterior motives.
A young trainer from Kalos.
- Adaptational Wimp: Due to not possessing Mega-Evolution she places at a lower seed than her canon self. Though at the end of her oneshot she is well on her way to obtaining the ability to do so and she is noted as being quite a good battler in the oneshot that it is clear her comparative weakness comes from a lack of Absolite more than anything.
- Heroic BSoD: Did not take her loss against Vermell well.
- Mind over Matter: Her Espurr -> Meowstic.
- Oh, Crap!: She and her Absol have a mutual one when they realize just how much more powerful Vermell's Mega Steelix is compared to the regular one.
- Panthera Awesome: By the time she reaches the Kalos League, her Litleo has become a Pyroar.
- Path of Most Resistance: Averted, she did not challenge all eight of the most powerful gyms in Kalos, skipping the Shalour and Snowbelle gyms, which led to her not having experience fighting Mega Evolved Pokemon, leading directly to her loss in the Kalos League. She chastised herself for it afterwards.
- Playing with Fire: Her Litleo -> Pyroar.

- Weapon of Choice: Absol, as per canon.
A well versed Mega-Evolution using trainer. Many young trainers train and stay with her, who refer to her as their grandmother.

A trainer from Kalos, and a master of Mega-Evolution.
- Age Lift: Ambiguously. While his age was never stated in the XY anime, he was shown similarly active as his canon self during Casey Snagem's time, which places him in Reggie's age bracket instead of Ash and Alain's.
- Expy: His mentioned history in the Gary oneshot makes him one to Sawyer.
A trainer from Kalos who seeks to be the strongest in Mega-Evolution with his Charizard. Was once an assistant to Professor Sycamore.
