A description of character-specific tropes found in Pokemon Shadowfall.

This page contains spoilers.




Main character of Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, he's been unceremoniously stripped of his Heroic Mime status and given access to a voicebox, as well as a metric ton of issues.
  • Determinator: Implied by the fact that he single-handedly dismantled Cipher's second incarnation when he was barely twelve years old.
  • Friendless Background: Implied.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: While Michael's achievements are impressive and he's sure of his battling skills, he has the approximate self-esteem of an earthworm.


"Jovi almost lost two very important people to Cipher. Jovi will do everything needed to make sure Jovi does not lose big brother, understand?"
The main character's little sister in the Pokémon XD series, she's just starting out as a Pokémon trainer and is considerably smarter than she seems.


"Bingo, Rui."
The protagonist of Pokémon Colosseum, Wes makes a comeback five years after the conclusion of his game, to take on the third incarnation of Cipher at his successor's side.


The sidekick of Pokémon Colosseum, Rui appears alongside Wes after a five-year absence from canon.


"Shut UP!"
One of several redheads apparently hanging around Wes, Silver is the Snagger's protege in all things not involving Snagging.
  • Anger Born of Worry
  • Ascended Extra: Remember that kid who got barely five seconds of screentime in the anime, and who appeared as a rival in the games? This is him, but slightly tweaked.
  • Break the Haughty: Apparently by Lance and his Dragonite shortly before Wes met him.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: As it happens, he's perfectly aware that his father is Giovanni. He just didn't think the guy was still alive. And nobody else knew.
  • Parental Abandonment: Giovanni abandoned him, and his mother is never so much as mentioned.




Michael's starter Pokémon, originally a gift from his late father. Moondance is painfully aware of this and has long since vowed to look after her trainer as a result.

Cyrus and Jericho

Wes's pair of Eeveelutions and his signature duo, Cyrus and Jericho often comment on the events in the story and can be used as advance scouts if Wes needs information fast. Cyrus is the Espeon, while Jericho is the Umbreon.


The legendary phoenix, Ho-Oh seems to be gathering an unknown number of fellow legendary Pokémon for some purpose. It also seems to have taken over managing the trio of Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres while Lugia is missing.




The Fourth Redhead/Eldes
