The "Miraculous Masters" / Defenders of Kalos

     As a whole 
The main stars of the story, the Miraculous Ladybug protagonists imported into the world of Pokémon. A pair of young Pokémon Trainers undergoing their individual journeys while taking it upon themselves to protect Kalos and loved ones after their first encounter with Team Akuma.
  • Adorkable: Both are endearing both in and out of costume, especially when trying to impress their crushes.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Liepard Noir sometimes calls Lady Ledian "Scatterbug-a-boo" on top of the usual milady. Likewise, Lady Ledian refers to him as "Pard" by his request, though she sees him more as a "silly Skitty."
  • Badass Adorable: Both are pretty dorky and cute teens who are the beloved and heroic superheroes of their region.
  • Battle Couple: Marinette wished she and Adrien were this, and she kind of got her wish, zig zagged however. Like in the main series, the two aren't a couple but have romantic feelings for another and are Kalos defenders against Poison Moth. Problem is, like in the show, Marinette aka Lady Ledian is in love with Adrien while Adrien aka Liepard Noir is in love with Lady Ledian.
  • Beware of the Nice Ones: Just as in the main series, both of them are generally sweet and nice people. If anyone hurts Adrien or endangers her friends, Marinette can be terrifying and Adrien will be absolutely merciless whenever his friends are at risk.
  • Friendly Rival: Both Marinette and Adrien are friends and rivals who help each other out during their journey, though mostly because Marinette Cannot Spit It Out.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Despite their accomplishments in the story, both Marinette and Adrien suffer from their own doubts and insecurities.
    • Marinette still retains some of her self-doubt and insecurities even when she has accomplished much both as a trainer and a superhero. She feels that Liepard Noir would be disappointed that Lady Ledian's civilian identity is just a clumsy girl with no real desire To Be a Master other than use it to impress her crush.
    • Adrien hides his insecurities in regards to the expectations forced upon him to succeed his father. As Liepard Noir, he takes several jabs at his civilian identity as seen in Chapter 32.
  • Large Ham: To varying degrees. Marinette tends to have Drama Queen tendencies on top of an overactive imagination when things go wrong in her attempts to impress Adrien. And then there's Liepard Noir being the lovable goofball he is, even during times of crisis against Team Akuma.
  • Loves My Alter Ego: Just the same as from the main show, same dynamics and all.
  • Magical Accessory: Marinette's earring and Adrien's ring. They're Key Stones to help invoke Mega Evolution, but they also have drops of power from Xerneas and Yveltal, respectively. Power that can remove the forced Bond Hybrid transformation inflicted by Team Akuma from a person and their Pokémon and restore their integrity. They're why Poison Moth is openly launching attacks on Kalos to draw them out as he believes the Key Stones would lead him to the mentioned Olympus Mons.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Unlike the main series where their costumes were produced by magic, Marinette and Adrien had to acquire their superhero costumes on their own (Marinette made her own while Adrien covertly used his wealth and resources to acquire his) and find opportunities to change without others finding out. But given that this is the Pokemon universe, no one can really tell it’s them under the masks. They make Team Rocket proud.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Zigzagged. Marinette is the emotional Red Oni to Adrien’s reserved Blue Oni. However, Lady Ledian is the collected Blue Oni compared to the reckless Red Oni that is Liepard Noir.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Again, they unknowingly have eyes only for each other, even with the likes of Kagami and Luka introduced into the story, but even then, these new character don't show much romantic interest at their intended targets.
  • Technician vs. Performer: Zigzagged. In general, Marinette is the Performer to Adrien’s Technician. But in their hero costumes, Lady Ledian focuses more on tactics while Liepard Noir, despite being highly educated on Pokémon moves and abilities, is more bold and reckless in his battle style.
  • To Be a Master: Averted for both. Marinette doesn't have the desire to be the next Champion and is only competing in the Kalos League so that she can be close to Adrien. Adrien on the other hand is only competing because he feels everyone pressuring him to follow in his father's footsteps and he hopes winning the Kalos League would have his father come back to him.

     Marinette Dupain-Cheng / Lady Ledian 
The leading protagonist we follow starting her Pokémon journey in the Kalos region, hoping to gain inspiration for her fashion designs and to learn more about Pokémon. She also aims in competing in the Kalos League in hopes of being closer to Adrien than she was back in Lumiose Trainer Academy. Is also part of the duo that actively thwarts Team Akuma's schemes, donning the persona of Lady Ledian.
  • Action Girl: Marinette, naturally as she is a Pokémon trainer and takes this Up to Eleven as her Kalos defender counterpart, Lady Ledian, when it comes to facing Team Akuma.
  • Asleep in Class: It has been mentioned that Marinette often dozes off or daydreams about Adrien during their Trainer School days in Lumiose City. Marinette regrets this whenever she can't remember important facts or details during their lecture when they later become important in her journey.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Don't belittle Adrien in front of her, as the audience in Chapter 41 soon experienced via her Gardevoir's Psychic.
    • Never insult or demean her Pokémon in anyway.
    • She doesn't take it too kindly whenever someone insults her love for Adrien as a 'fangirl phase'.
  • Catchphrase:
    • When calling upon her Ledyba/Ledian, Marinette uses “Tikki, spots on!”
    • Also, when Marinette catches a new Pokémon or wins a gym badge, she yells, “Miraculous Ledyba/Ledian!” The Ledyba/Ledian part depended on the stage Tikki is in.
    • For Mega Evolving Gardevoir, she says "Grace on! Mega Evolve!"
  • Chef of Iron: Like her great-uncle, Marinette's noted to be an excellent baker and trainer who also happens to be a masked superhero.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Is prone to jealousy whenever a girl flirts or gets too close for comfort to Adrien, which causes her to act irrationally when pushed too far, but she reserves this for Chloé and later Lila. Lila's act of leading Adrien away and kissing him was enough to impulsively drive Marinette to wear her Lady Ledian mask and just like in the main show, it made her call out Lila on her lies in Chapter 48, humiliating Lila in from of Adrien, which renders her vulnerable to become Team Akuma's Bond Hybrid.
    • Ironically, Liepard Noir tries to invoke this on Lady Ledian when he was giving Alya attention after saving Xavier at the Kalos Power Plant near the end of Chapter 33. Lady Ledian teasingly boops him back on the nose in response.
    • Downplayed in Chapter 52 when Liepard Noir was getting close to new heroine, Delphox Rouge, though it was more out of annoyance that her Pard was being distracted during a confrontation against Team Akuma. However, it is hinted that her hidden negativity caused her Gardevoir to lose her Mega Evolution early again.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Her battle style since her Pokémon in general are not particular powerhouses.
  • Crush Blush: Marinette’s default reaction around Adrien early on in the story, often described to ridiculous levels.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She's noted to be quite clumsy, especially early on in the story where she often trips on her own feet and whenever around Adrien. Though when she's Lady Ledian, she becomes more competent.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Her common reaction towards small, cute Pokémon like Pikachu and Dedenne. Unfortunately both are Electric-Type Pokémon. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Dude Magnet: While not as pronounced as in the main show, Marinette is still considered attractive to many. Nathaniel was attracted to her prior to the story before it was mentioned he got over her. And Luka displayed some vague interest towards her while in Laverre City. As Lady Ledian, she has a number of fanboys as seen in Chapter 49. And then there's Liepard Noir.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: If Alya's intel is anything to go by, Lady Ledian has her fair share of female admirers as with her male admirers.
  • Fashion Designer: An aspiring fashion designer who hopes to gains inspiration for her designs while travelling through Kalos.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: As her parents own a bakery, Marinette has some skills in baking, particularly bakery goods and Poké Puffs that her Pokémon enjoy. This is shown in Chapter 34 where, with the help of her party, baked plenty of goods for both Adrien and her Pokémon team. Alya has encouraged her to use her baking skills more often to increase her chances with Adrien.
  • Genki Girl: Constantly optimistic and full of energy despite suffering crippling self-esteem issues and getting flustered around Adrien.
  • Gibberish of Love: Early in the story, she'd often mix up words in her sentences whenever she's in the presence of Adrien.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Wouldn't be Marinette without the hairstyle.
  • Girls Are Really Scared of Horror Movies: She's not a big fan of horror. She was terrified when she and Alya ventured through the Scary House in Chapter 44 and dreads the thought of a Darkrai visiting her in the dead of night while she sleeps.
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: Her Pokémon team mostly consists of either cute or feminine Pokémon, often has romantic fantasies about Adrien and is an aspiring fashion designer. That being said, she's also a Pokémon Trainer competing for the Kalos League and was willing to rock-climb in the Cyllage Gym.
  • Graceful Loser: In Chapter 55 after losing to Chloé in their rematch and despite her rival's Unsportsmanlike Gloating, Marinette keeps it together long enough to actually congratulate Chloé on her victory, which actually sours it for her as Chloé wanted Marinette to be miserable over it Though downplayed as she does still feel saddened over the fact that she lost to Chloé of all people, which she shows after Chloé left.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Or rather luck, as it has played as a decisive factor in Marinette's battle style.
  • Heavy Sleeper: Has required Alya using her Elekid to shock her awake, but she has been getting better since Alya is not always around during her journey.
  • He Will Not Cry, So I Cry for Him: In Chapter 41, after Adrien's loss against his father with the addition of Gabriel's harsh "The Reason You Suck" Speech, he retreats to his favorite spot in Lumiose City's natural park. However, as the Champion Agreste's son, he can't cry in front of anyone, which Marinette soon noticed. When Marinette finds him, she realizes she's crying for him.
    Adrien: It's ironic. I came here after the match thinking I was going to cry. But as Champion Agreste's son, I can't.
    Marinette: Then... let me cry for you. It's the least I could do.
  • Heroic BSoD: She occasionally had these.
    • Marinette suffers a brief and minor one in the Parfum Palace tag battle during the first round, wherein she is eliminated first and Adrien had to fight off Ivan and Mylène on his own. Despite being able to move on to the next round, Marinette felt humiliated for holding Adrien back and ran off before Adrien found her and snapped her out of it.
    • Happens again in Chapter 23 where Marinette nearly suffered this during her battle against Jalil's Mega Lucario when the odds seems against her and she begins to freak out. It is only when Alya snaps her out of it by giving her a speech that reminded her of her goal.
    • When Marinette faced Team Akuma for the first time as Lady Ledian, she was affected by the grunts taunts because of how true and accurate they are to an extent. Liepard Noir's timely rescue and shutting down their taunts helped her find the courage she needed to face them.
    • A subtle one happens ever since the Lila incident since Chapter 47, where Marinette's unable to keep her Gardevoir in her Mega Evolved form for too long and both end up exhausted. It's implied that her negative feelings like jealousy are the root of the cause.
  • Honor Before Reason: During her fight against Lila's Mawile, when Gardevoir appeared to have gain the upper, Alya encourages Marinette to use Mega Evolution to keep that advantage. Marinette refuses because Lila won't Mega Evolve her Mawile and she doesn't want to stoop to Lila's level in order to win. This results in Marinette falling for Lila's trap and losing the match.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: Along the lines of her Combat Pragmatist battle style, Lady Ledian has no qualms in harming people if it means stopping Bond Hybrids from wreaking havoc while Liepard Noir tries to find riskier alternatives to avoid unnecessarily harming innocent lives. A good example would be attacking Mega Pidgeot with her Kirlia's Thunderbolt, even though the electrocution would also affect Mr. Pidgeot, who is riding on Mega Pidgeot's back on top of sharing the pain through their forced power bond.
  • Imagine Spot: As usual, Marinette's imagination tends to go to the extreme for either the best or the worst possible consequences, usually the latter due to worrying about either losing a Pokémon battle or getting Adrien to notice her. All played for laughs.
  • Mama Bear: Marinette in regards to Togepi, the youngest member of her team. Her nurturing nature allowed Togepi to evolve into Togetic.
  • Motor Mouth: Whenever she gets nervous or recounting her fantasies (especially when they involve Adrien), Marinette has a tendency to ramble on at a fast pace.
  • Nice Girl: Marinette's a sweet and kind girl to her friends, former classmates and Pokémon. After capturing Sewaddle, she offers a Poké Puff to the Sewing Pokémon as an apology for their rough start, showing no resentment. Her genuine kindness towards Spinda due to her understanding of being clumsy was the reason why he became fond of her.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: In Chapter 48, Marinette's jealousy gets the better of her when she embarrasses Lila in front of Adrien, even though she had a reason to as Lila forcibly kissed Adrien against his will. This indirectly causes Lila to be vulnerable to Team Akuma's ambush and subsequently, Marinette's inability to keep Gardevoir's Mega Form.
  • The Perfectionist: Downplayed but Marinette often worries of failing to be a worthy trainer in Adrien's eyes despite not being asked to be perfect by him.
  • Plucky Girl: Despite having her moments of nearly despairing, she stays optimistic and determined no matter what predicament she's in.
  • The Pollyanna: She always remain positive and upbeat, especially after the group was separated in Glittering Cave and after Ivan's kidnapping during their first encounter with Team Akuma.
  • Red Is Heroic: Lady Ledian's outfit, although it's not entirely red due to being modeled after Ledian. The red is mostly on her mask, scarf, and shoes.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Half of Marinette's team are comprise of adorable Pokémon, such Tikki her Ledyba/Ledian, Sewaddle/Swadloon/Leavanny and Togepi/Togetic.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: Wears one as Lady Ledian, which resembles Ledian's elytra.
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: Has been subjected to the Harmless Electrocution Running Gag.
  • So Proud of You: Marinette takes pride in raising her Pokémon, so she'll have this reaction whenever they evolve. This is evident for Togepi, a baby Pokémon whom Marinette raised with all her heart.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Marinette wouldn't like to let Adrien know she used to memorize his daily schedule.
  • Stealth Expert: Marinette's quite stealthy and was able to hide from Adrien and Nino when they were at the same Pokémon Centre in Chapter 34.
  • Stepford Smiler: Marinette manages to keep her cheerful façade together in Chapter 55 after she lost to Chloé in their second match, even congratulating the latter on her victory. Alya commends her for it, as it would be something she herself cannot do.
  • Textile Work Is Feminine: Marinette's shown to be making clothes with the help of her Sewaddle/Swadloon/Leavanny's silk and Ralts/Kirlia/Gardevoir's assistance during her journey and is definitely a girly-girl.
  • Tranquil Fury: Marinette whenever when she's pushed to her limits such as certain audience members belittling Adrien following his crushing defeat by his father's hand in Chapter 41 and calling out Lila on her lies as revenge for kissing Adrien in Chapter 48.
  • Transformation Trinket: She received a Key Stone in the form of a pair of earrings courtesy of Master Fu and is connected to Xerneas. Her Gardevoir has a Gardevoirite that is kept as a pin to hold a shawl that Marinette made for Gardevoir.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the flashback in Chapter 1, Marinette was timid and she feared that experience in Professor Damocles' lab before Tikki and Adrien helped her. After starting her Pokémon journey and later becoming Lady Ledian, she becomes more assertive and confident; improving her skills as a Trainer and hero.
  • Tsundere: She's a mild Type-B. Marinette's normally sweet and kind, but Liepard Noir brings out her tsun-tsun side when dealing with his humor, cockiness, or attempts to flirt with her, both in and out of costume. She shares this with her Ralts/Kirlia/Gardevoir.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Although she isn't Adrien's girlfriend, in Chapter 41, the audience are spilt on Adrien's performance after the exhibition match and several trainers begin dissing Adrien. Marinette had just about enough of Adrien being badmouth and has her Gardevoir use Psychic to make everyone involved in the fight float above the ground so they would stop.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Marinette's Pokémon aren't powerhouses compared to Adrien's, a fact she herself acknowledges. She makes up for this through making use of her Pokémon's abilities, analyzing her surroundings and uses her quick thinking to devise or adapt her strategies during battles.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Just like in the show Adrien calls out on Lady Ledian for how harsh and cruel she was when exposing Lila as the fraud she is in Chapter 48, humiliating her. Granted, he acknowledges he's not going to forgive Lila anytime soon after she violated his personal space and stealing his first kiss, but won't stoop to her level just to get back at her. This has both contemplating on they could've handled the situation better than they initially did.
  • Yandere: Played for Laughs. Finding out that Adrien was injured as Liepard Noir during the battle against Mr. Pidgeot in Chapter 33 caused Marinette to briefly adopt a dark expression and tells Alya over the phone that she would "send the evildoers to the Distortion World in a bag." Would extend to Violently Protective Girlfriend, but she's technically not Adrien's girlfriend... yet. Alya does call her out on it, telling her not to change the direction of the story into a "trashy attempt at romantic horror."
    • Again played for dark laughs in Chapter 45 when Marinette imagines herself dying alone and having her ghost haunt Adrien's home and give his supposed wife her unholy revenge while convincing the living Adrien to join her in the afterlife. Even Alya was creeped out by her Imagine Spot.
  • Zany Scheme: Alix mentions in Chapter 56 that Marinette came up with a lot of insane schemes just to get together with Adrien and prevent any girl from getting close to him during their days in the academy.

     Marinette's Pokémon 
Throughout her journey, Marinette has encountered countless Pokémon in the Kalos region, including those who end up joining her. Whether it was through the usual Pokéball method or the aspiring fashion designer befriended them, Marinette shares a close bond with her team as they strive to be the best they can be while accompanying her on her journey. Although not reliant on pure power, they prove to be a formidable team with the combination of having some tricks up their sleeves, Marinette's quick-thinking, and a bit of luck.
  • Badass Adorable: The majority of her team are comprised of cute-looking Pokémon who are all competent in Pokémon battles. Even her not-so-cute-ones; specifically Feebas, can surprisingly be consider cute in a way. Her Gardevoir and Leavanny were cute back when they were Ralts/Kirlia and Sewaddle/Swadloon respectively before both evolving into Lady of War.
  • Determinator: Marinette's team shares their trainer's strong will and strive to improve themselves. This sprit is also what keeps them going during tough battles.
  • Magikarp Power: Three of Marinette's Pokémon started off with low stats and limited movepool sets, but under Marinette's care they can/were able to fully realize their potential:
    • Ralts has low stats and can be easily knocked out and out speed despite knowing Confusion as shown in her earlier battles. She improves when she evolves into Kirlia and learning Draining Kiss and Thunder but it's evolving into her final form, Gardevoir, does she become a powerful Glass Cannon with high Special Attack and Special Defense.
    • Togepi due to the fact she's a baby Pokémon and doesn't have high stats, something that Jalil pointed out during Marinette's Shalour Gym Battle. Evolving into Togetic from the close bond she shares with Marinette makes her a Stone Wall, but her offensive stats are still low. Once she evolves into Togekiss via Shiny Stone, she becomes a Mighty Glacier.
    • Feebas is Magikarp's equivalent, but she can evolve into the beautiful and defense-oriented Lightning Bruiser Milotic.
  • Poor, Predictable Rock: Her team downplays this as they are a mixture of Pokémon, but it's noted that half of her team are weak against Electric-Types (Tikki, Togepi/Togetic, Feebas) and Ice-Types (Tikki, Sewaddle/Swadloon/Leavanny, Togepi/Togetic). Naturally, the Lumiose City Gym prove to a challenge due to specializing in Electric-Types.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Most of her Pokémon are absolutely adorable, especially her Togepi/Togetic and Spinda.
  • True Companions: One of the reasons why Marinette's growing into a competent Pokémon trainer is because of the close bond she formed with her party. In return, her team continues to support her during the journey as she does for them.

Ledyba/Ledian (Tikki)

Marinette's starter Pokémon. Met at Professor Damocles's Pokémon reserve. Loyal and caring like her Kwami counterpart.
  • Action Girl: Tikki is of Marinette's key Pokémon in battles, having defeated several of the Gym Leader's strongest Pokémon. Particularly during Marinette's battle against the Shalour Gym Leader where she faced off against a Mega Evolved Lucario and won.
  • Action Initiative: Learns Mach Punch upon evolving into Ledian during the final battle against Jalil's Mega Lucario.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Tikki is part Bug-Type and knows Silver Wind.
  • Blow You Away: Tikki is also part Flying-Type and one notable Flying-Type moveset she has is Acrobatics.
  • Flight: As a Ledyba/Ledian, she naturally knows how to fly.
  • Fragile Speedster: Tikki's a Ledyba/Ledian, she has above average Speed, but has terrible HP, Defense and offensive stats.
  • A Handful for an Eye: Not exactly for an eye, but Tikki unintentionally helped Marinette discover this as part of her trainer's tactic in countering Nadja's Electric Pokémon in their Gym battle (which was discovered during her practice battle against Alya and Electabuzz) by having Tikki punch up dirt and cover them in it to hinder their electricity. It was described as "a crude form of Mud Sport," which weakens electric power. It worked on Emolga.
  • Head Pet: As a smaller Ledyba, she would sometimes perch on top of Marinette's head when outside her Poké Ball.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: She certainly has more than one pair of limbs to use for punches, specifically Comet Punch. Even as a Ledian, she has four limbs more pronounced as actual arms, each capable of performing a Mach Punch if the situation calls for it.
  • Parrot Pet Position: She would also rest on Marinette's shoulders time to time.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Initially knew Comet Punch as Ledyba before using the more proficient Mach Punch. Her Iron Fist enhances all punch-related moves.
  • Silent Snarker: Not to the same extent as Plagg, but given her trainer can be a tad absent-minded, Tikki's not above being amused by her trainer.
  • Starter Mon: Marinette's first Pokémon.
  • Stone Wall: As a Ledyba/Ledian, Tikki's above average Special Defense has helped her stay in the battle longer than she should have. Which has enabled Tikki to keep on fighting and earning Marinette victory in the Santalune Gym and Shalour Gym.
  • Sweet Tooth: Loves Poké Puffs and cookies.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Her antennae are short as to signify she's a female.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Tikki is said to enjoy Poké Puffs aside from cookies.

Ralts/Kirlia/Gardevoir

Marinette's second Pokémon, caught at the same time Adrien catches her friend. Encountered in Route 4. Shy and withdrawn at first, she opens up and grows in confidence the same time Marinette does during her journey.
  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: From Chapter 47 onwards, Gardevoir wears a red and black spotted shawl that Marinette made for her, which is held by a Gardevoirite.
  • Action Girl: She has become a powerful dual Psychic and Fairy-Type Pokémon who's capable of Mega Evolving.
  • Berserk Button: As with Marinette over Adrien, don't hurt or insult Adrien's Gallade.
  • Beware of the Nice Ones: Like her trainer, she's normally a sweet and demure Pokémon, but get on her bad side and she'll subject you with Psychic.
  • Birds of a Feather: Shares a lot of personality traits with Marinette.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Knew Adrien's Ralts prior to being captured by their respective Trainers.
  • Dance Battler: Like her design when she evolves to Kirlia, she's been described to be dodging with grace and elegance, often pirouetting when on the battlefield.
  • The Dragonslayer: One of the virtues of being a part Fairy-Type is that she's strong and immune against Dragon-Types.
  • Glass Cannon: She's quite the powerhouse capable of tremendous Psychic attacks both in and out of battle. That being said, she has lackluster HP, Speed and Defense, which is shown in the Parfum Tag-Team battle, the Shalour Gym Battle and the Lumiose Gym Battle.
  • Green Thumb: Knows Magical Leaf.
  • Guardian Angel: Her species are based on this. As much as she reprimands Gallade's recklessness in protecting her, she will protect Marinette even at the cost of her life, as shown in Chapter 51. She represents Marinette's status as one of the defenders of Kalos.
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: As part of the Gardevoir line, she wears an elegant dress in both her normal and Mega Evolved form all the while dishing out powerful Psychic attacks. Marinette was even inspired by the elegant features for her designs.
  • Kiss of Death: She knows Draining Kiss when she evolves from a Ralts to a Kirlia.
  • Lady and Knight: The Lady to Adrien's Gallade's Knight.
  • Lady of Black Magic: Gardevoir fits, with her feminine and elegant design, high Special Attack stats and her association with magical powers.
  • Lady of War: Once she evolves into Gardevoir, carrying an air of elegance and grace while in battle.
  • Mythology Gag: The Mega Evolution Transformation Sequence for Gardevoir is described to match Ladybug's transformation from the show.
  • Life Drain: Draining Kiss heals Gadevoir with the energy she steals from her opponent.
  • Psychic Powers: Is part Psychic-Type and knows Psychic.
  • Psychosomatic Superpower Outage: She's been unable to maintain her Mega Evolved form for long starting from dealing with Lila in Chapter 48. The narration has described how Gardevoir's psychic powers are dependent on Marinette's emotional stability and has warned that negative emotions Marinette harbors would bring disunity to their bond.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: She's part Fairy-Type and knows Draining Kiss.
  • Shock and Awe: Knows Thunderbolt, presumably learned from Alya's Elekid.
  • Shrinking Violet: She started out this way as a Ralts, being timid and easily frightened as shown by how she met Marinette. She loses this when she evolved into Kirlia during Marinette's second Gym Battle, gaining more confidence.
  • Super Mode: Is able to Mega Evolve into Mega Gardevoir.
  • Synchronization: She has the ability Synchronize, which afflicts opponents with Standard Status Effects that the user takes. So far this ability fails to be utilized twice due to the fact the opponents are Pokémon who are immune to the effects they were inflicted (Poison on a Poison-Type and Paralysis on an Electric-Type). She is also well-synchronized with Marinette for the most part, such as sharing many personality traits with her. It gets to the point that anything that throws their bond into disunity, such as Marinette's negative feelings and doubts, would greatly impede their ability to work well, the prominent problem being Gardevoir timing out of her Mega Evolution.
  • Taking the Bullet: She was prepared to protect Lady Ledian from a pair of Team Akuma Houndour in Chapter 51, only for Liepard Noir's Gallade to intercept it and take the hit instead, protecting both girls.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Ralts evolution into Kirlia where she won her first Gym battle, losing her initially timidity in the progress. She ups the ante with her evolution into Gardevoir near the end of the Lumiose City Siege and gaining the means to Mega Evolve.
  • Tsundere: Type-B. Like her trainer, she is usually sweet and down-to-earth, but when around Adrien's Gallade, his antics often results in this reaction.

Sewaddle/Swadloon/Leavanny

Marinette's third Pokémon. Encountered at Santalune City. Represents Marinette's fashion designer aspect.
  • Action Girl: Her introduction established her as a brave Pokémon even as a Sewaddle and was the first Pokémon Marinette used in her debut as Lady Ledian.
  • All Webbed Up: Aside from using String Shot to swing herself around, she also uses the move under its conventional uses to wrap up and slow down opponents in resilient silk.
  • Barrier Warrior: Learned the skill Protect ever since Sewaddle evolved into Swadloon, which compensates for her poor Defense.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Is part Bug-type and learns X-Scissor upon evolving into Leavanny.
  • Big Eater: Marinette first discovers her when Sewaddle decided to eat her discarded sketch papers, thinking they were up for grabs. The narration in Chapter 34 stated that she had to be held back from eating the pastries and Poké Puffs Marinette was baking. Even as a Leavanny she still hasn't lost it.
  • Building Swing: She utilizes String Shot to move around in higher ground, which helps her gain momentum and avoiding attacks.
  • Butt Biter: During her first fight against Tikki, she used Bug Bite on her exposed carapace.
  • Cute Little Fangs: As a Sewaddle, she had these.
  • Energy Ball: She knows the move of the same name.
  • Fashion Designer: Was selected to become one of Marinette's Pokémon because of this matching role. Has also helped Marinette out time to time in making new clothes with her strong and soft silk during their journey, particularly on her Lady Ledian costume.
  • Fragile Speedster: She relies a lot on her Speed to dodge and is fairly strong, but she can barely withstand to take a hit, especially her vulnerabilities.
  • Green Thumb: Is part Grass-type and knows Energy Ball.
  • Man Bites Man: When she was a Sewaddle, she knew Bug Bite.
  • Mundane Utility: Her String Shot is often used by Marinette as silk material whenever making new fashion items.
  • Stealth Expert: Leavanny's speed makes her quick and nible especially when taking her enemies by surprise. She snuck around and managed to hit Marianne's Starmie from behind with X-Scissor when they were distracted by Marinette's Togekiss.
  • Tranquil Fury: Swadloon barely emotes, but was noted to have her normally bored expression to show fury when she was insulted by Chloé.

Togepi/Togetic/Togekiss

Marinette's fourth Pokémon, hatched from a Pokémon Egg. Obtained from winning a tag-team tournament in Parfum Palace. Represents Marinette's good luck. Lucky Charm!
  • The Baby of the Bunch: The youngest member on Marinette's team and has an appropriately cheery and childlike personality.
  • Beware of the Nice Ones: She's the sweetest and the most innocent among Marinette's team. That being said, don't underestimate her just because she's a baby nor do you threaten her adoptive mother.
  • Blow You Away: After she evolves into Togetic, becoming part Flying-Type and growing a pair of small wings. Knows Air Slash as Togekiss.
  • Cheerful Child: Part of her nature.
  • Comes Great Responsibility: The factor that spurs Togetic to evolve into Togekiss in Chapter 56 after a painful loss against Chloé. Marinette wanted to make sure the basis of her and Togetic selecting evolution was from their mutual trust and desire to grow stronger together and not out of revenge against Chloé. There was a possibility Marinette feared had the intent to evolve came from the latter.
  • Confusion Fu: Knows Metronome, which is known to be unpredictable due to randomly producing moves who's usefulness vary.
  • Epic Fail: One time she used Metronome, which was against Manon and a wild Dedenne she befriended, it ended up in the move Splash.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: Part Fairy-type and knows Dazzling Gleam.
  • Flight: She grew a pair of wings that allows her to float as Togetic.
  • Light 'em Up: She knows Dazzling Gleam.
  • Light Is Good: She's a brightly colored and benevolent Fairy and later part Flying-Type who spreads joy to her trainer and others.
  • Mama Bear: Inverted. She does not like it when her adoptive mother is insulted or hurt.
  • Mighty Glacier: Once she evolves into a Togekiss, she becomes a tank with incredible Special Attack stats. That being said, her Speed isn't that impressive. Marinette took advantage of this during her Anistar Gym Battle in Chapter 56 when Marianne used Trick Room, decreasing her speed even more so she would be the fastest in the Trick Room physical laws.
  • Mythology Gag: Her Metronome moveset and usage mirrors Ladybug's Lucky Charm ability in the show. This is more prominent in Chapter 52 and in Chapter 56.
  • Psychic Powers: Knows Extrasensory.
  • Random Effect Spell: She knows Metronome, allowing her to use any kind of attack as the situation requires.
  • The Rival: Develops a tense rivalry against Chloé's Murkrow/Honchkrow, given that they're of opposing types capable of flight.
  • Standard Status Effect: Knows Sweet Kiss, which causes confusion upon contact.
  • Stone Wall: As a Togetic, she has good defense and variety of supporting moves. However, she doesn't have the best offensive stats.
  • Sweet Tooth: She was drooling over the Poké Puffs that were made by the Showcase Contestants in Chapter 50.

Feebas

Marinette's fifth Pokémon. Encountered at Azure Bay. Represents Marinette's growth to true beauty.
  • Awesome by Analysis: Is able to learn Ice Beam after watching Alya's Amaura use Aurora Beam, but was unable to master the move and still lost to her.
  • Flat Character: Is unfortunately hit with this due to her lack of screentime. It probably doesn't help that she's the Fish Pokémon and that the main characters haven't been around water where she could be used more. She does get a bit of personality in Chapter 45 as a Pokémon that wants to work hard in getting stronger to earn the privilege to evolve into Milotic. When she does appear in the story, she does show some depth. See Hidden Depths for more details.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Like Magikarp, Feebas are only valued due to their ability to evolve into Milotic and would instantly evolve it once they gained the means for it. Marinette's Feebas however defies it; striving to improve herself in order to reach her full potential before she feels she deserves to evolve. This is shown through her slowly mastering Ice Beam. Despite instantly learning it just by watching Alya's Amaura, she still had trouble controlling it. It isn't until with the help and guidance of Marinette and her great-uncle that she was finally able to control Ice Beam. Quite fittingly as she represents Marinette's determination to improve herself to fully realize her potential.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite her perceived weakness, Feebas has shown to be perceptive and observant just like her trainer which enabled her to learn Ice Beam just by observing Alya's Aurora Beam. In addition, the narration implies that she's a hard-worker who's determine to fully realize her potential to evolve into Milotic once she feels ready for it.
  • An Ice Person: Learns Ice Beam and eventually masters it.
  • Making a Splash: A Water-type.
  • Status Buff: She has the ability Swift Swim, which doubles her Speed while it's raining.
  • True Beauty Is on the Inside: She represents growth and acceptance to her own inner beauty, especially when Marinette must help Feebas reach her potential before she can evolve into Milotic.
  • Weak, but Skilled: It's a given being a Feebas, but she does pick up learning a powerful move like Ice Beam from observation alone and eventually mastering after a brief battle against Wang's Clawitzer later on.

Spinda

Marinette's sixth and final Pokémon. Encountered at Anistar City. Represents Marinette's clumsy and cute traits.
  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: While working in Anistar Café, Spinda was wearing a blue bow-tie on his collar instead of on his head, the placement signifying him being a boy Pokémon.
  • Adorkable: Spinda is known to be a naturally cute and clumsy Pokémon who's determination to help despite his own klutzy nature makes him endearing.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: Spinda's erratic and unsteady movements gives him the natural talent of making excellent juice cocktails. Unfortunately, his unsteady and wonky movements also makes it difficult for him to deliver his homemade drinks or other orders to the customers without the risk of spilling them. And even the occurrence of a successful delivery is rare.
  • The Bartender: Invoked for Spinda's character as part of the reference to Spinda's Café. Spinda is even described polishing a glass like a patient bartender during lunch time.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Spinda became fond of Marinette when she showed genuine concern and kindness towards him because she understands the nature of being a klutz like him, unlike the other guests who did it out of social politeness. In addition, she came to his defense when he angered the several punks after accidentally spilling their orders.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Spinda is an oddball Pokémon who has a tendency to trip and roll around. However, his fight against the three punks reminds the owner that he was a Pokémon that came from Route 21, a route that leads to the Kalos League HQ. Not to mention his fist-fight with Chloé's Weavile that was brutal for both parties.
  • Birds of a Feather: His similarities with Marinette include their klutziness, cuteness, and good hearts.
  • Confusion Fu: Spinda's battle style uses his attacks and unpredictable movements to confuse opponents.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Spinda is noted for his oddities whether it's for his reasons for following the café owner, his behavior or how he thinks. Heck, Spinda has forgotten the reason why he followed the owner back to Anistar City in the first place.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Spinda may be a huge klutz like Marinette, but in battle, he proves to be one wily foe to land a hit on.
  • Dance Battler: He's always moving around in combat; through for him it's mostly tumbling and rolling around with little footing. He also knows Teeter Dance.
  • Ditto Fighter: His Copycat.
  • Drunken Master: Comes with being a Spinda, he even knows Teeter Dance and Dizzy Punch which confuses the opponent.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: Knows Rapid Spin.
  • Face Plant: In Chapter 55, he attempts to strike a cool pose when Marinette summons him during her rematch battle against Chloé... only to land face first on the hard floor.
  • Hidden Depths: He knows how to make excellent juice from working in a café in Anistar City, with the author likening him to a bartender of sorts.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Spinda's stats are evenly distributed though not particularly impressive, but he narrowly avoids being Master of None in this context with his confusing movements and elusive behavior gimmick.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Gets into this against Chloé's Weavile in Chapter 55, brutally exchanging Dizzy Punches and Ice Punches until they both knock each other out.
  • Non-Elemental: He's a Normal-type and his revealed moves are all Normal.
  • The One Guy: The only male Pokémon on Marinette's full team.
  • Panda-ing to the Audience: Spinda is a cute bear based on the qinling panda.
  • Power Copying: Knows Copycat.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: His distinguished spot pattern is described to resemble a flower on his face.
  • Shout-Out: To Spinda's Café of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky.
  • Sixth Ranger: Spinda is the last Pokémon to fill up Marinette's team.
  • Spin to Deflect Stuff: He knows Rapid Spin.
  • Standard Status Effects: His Dizzy Punch and Teeter Dance can inflict confusion.
  • Wingding Eyes: As a Spinda, he has swirls for eyes to indicate his perpetually dizzy state. Marinette has bit of difficulty to know what he's thinking or if he's awake because of his eyes.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He won't go easy on female Pokémon. He engaged with Chloé's Weavile in an old-fashion fist-fight that left both beaten-up and bruised.

     Adrien Agreste / Liepard Noir 
The deuteragonist of the story. Child prodigy of the Kalos Champion and groomed to be the next to take the title from him, Adrien yearns for more out of his Pokémon journey and to grow out of his father's shadow. The mysterious disappearance of his mother four years prior still haunts him. Also operates as the other half of the heroic duo actively thwarting Team Akuma, taking on the liberating mask of Liepard Noir.
  • The Ace: As the Champion's son, Adrien's often called "Ace Trainer" due to being a Child Prodigy to the public and his friends look up to him.
  • Acquired Poison Immunity: The cold climate of Frost Cavern doesn't bother him unlike Lady Ledian, who had put on additional layers within her suit before going into action, in Chapter 51, indicating that he's used to the cold because of his early childhood training in the forests of Snowbelle City.
  • A Day In The Lime Light:
    • Chapter 54 switches between him and Marinette, but it's Adrien and his battle with Wayhem and meeting with Kagami whom the chapter mostly focus on.
    • Chapter 58 is more focused on him, featuring his first battle against Kagami. This chapter also addresses his utter loyalty to Lady Ledian, which begets his recklessness, according to Master Fu when he first met up with him. Kagami's honesty regarding his initial poor performance during their battle pulls him out of it, helping him develop his character beyond the sheltered boy that longs for affection.
  • Always Someone Better: Many, especially Marinette, view Adrien as this due to him being The Ace. It is through her desire to be close to him that Marinette aspires to be as strong as him one day. It is because of this that Adrien feels burdened to excel everyone's expectation to win the Kalos League.
  • Amazon Chaser: Like in the show, Adrien's attraction to Lady Ledian's bravery and skills as a Trainer.
  • Badass Bookworm: Adrien was described to be the top of Marinette's class, acing the practical exams, and has been highly educated on Pokémon moves and abilities.
  • Berserk Button: Threatening his friends, particularly Nino when Team Akuma got to him in Chapter 42, was enough to get Adrien/Liepard Noir to be serious and edgy.
  • Beneath the Mask: As with the show, Adrien's of the "superhero as true self" variant. Adrien is well-known as the "Ace Trainer" and child prodigy because of his status as the Champion's son; thus has to maintain a perfect image due to heavy expectation place on him in succeeding his father. As a superhero, he's an adventurous and wisecracking Casanova Wannabe. Liepard Noir explains to Alya when she first interviews the duo that being Liepard Noir gives him the freedom to act in ways that he never could otherwise without delving too personal.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: As Liepard Noir, he is a wise-cracking Pokémon Pungeon Master. He is still a skilled trainer and as Chapter 43 shows, when he stops joking, he is force to reckon with.
  • Broken Ace: Ranked at the top of Marinette's class at the Academy and has proven to be a very skillful Pokémon Trainer at a young age, on top of being well-liked by his peers and Pokémon alike. Underneath it all, Adrien suffers from Parental Neglect and "Well Done, Son!" Guy big time. Not to mention he becomes the most targeted trainer to battle with after his father made his announcement to show no mercy to his son if they want to compete in the Kalos League.
  • Catchphrase:
    • Adrien uses “Plagg, claws out!" for sending out his Purrloin/Liepard.
    • As Liepard Noir, he has been using "It's your Pard," which is likely inspired from Guzma's catchphrase from Sun & Moon.
    • For Mega Evolving Gallade, he says "Blades out! Mega Evolve!"
  • Cat Boy: As Liepard Noir, though he's based on a Pokémon who has both cat and leopard characteristics.
  • Chick Magnet: Aside from unknowingly gaining Marinette's affections, he is highly popular due to his "Ace Trainer" status and natural good looks. He even has Chloé and Lila smitten with him. It comes to the point that there was a huge majority of girls cheering for Adrien during the exhibition match against his father.
  • Child Prodigy: Adrien's skills and in-depth knowledge at a young age had people calling him a prodigy.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: As Liepard Noir, he has no qualms with flirting Lady Ledian, but does put it on hold whenever she reminds him of the task at hand.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Liepard Noir's top priority is to ensure that Lady Ledian is safe unless she has something to say about it. Even as Adrien, he decided to fight against Team Akuma to protect his friends after the organization kidnapped Ivan, not caring if he got hurt in the process.
  • Clothing Damage: Not played for fanservice and justified. In Chapter 51, two Grunts restrained Liepard Noir and had a pair of their Sneasel beat him up. Their sharp claws torn a bit of his costume around the midsection and mildly slashed his gut.
  • Combat Pragmatist: In Chapter 42, rather than face the two Team Akuma grunts in a Pokémon battle, Liepard Noir opted to have his Marowak knock them out before they could even start a battle. Since his best friend has been turned into the latest Bond Hybrid, he's not wasting any time on them.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Downplayed in Adrien's case, in which overhearing guys in public talking about how they think they have a chance with Lady Ledian, as seen at the end of Chapter 49, annoys him while passively asserting to himself that he has greater entitlement to her than any other guy. Although he seemed fine if the boy Trainers talking about her challenged him to a Pokémon battle since it would allow him to vent out more stored frustration.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: The Pokémon Liepard Noir is based on is known as the "Cruel Pokémon" and it's pre-evolved form is known to steal on unsuspecting victims. Nonetheless, Liepard Noir proves to be a hero and a reliable partner to Lady Ledian. This is actually discussed between the two.
    Lady Ledian: I don't know. The Pokédex does say that Liepard is the Cruel Pokémon, after all. And its pre-evolved form, Purrloin, is known to steal when you least expect it. Not really inspiring much confidence, y'know.
    Liepard Noir: Ah, but remember that I break the stereotype of the boy hero dressed in black. (leans closer to Lady Ledian's face) ... Unless you really want a bad boy for a sidekick ... my Lady.~
  • Didn't Think This Through: In Chapter 51, he had Gallade protect Lady Ledian's Gardevoir, resulting in Gallade being incapacitated by two Houndour. This left Liepard Noir defenseless against the Team Akuma grunts surprise attack, a fact lamphaded by them.
  • Don't Call Me "Sir": He hates being referred to as "Champion Agreste's son" as it strips him of his own identity.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: As seen in Chapter 54, Wayhem's fanboying over him is on par with Marinette's.
  • Epic Fail: Liepard Noir attempted to invoke a Heroic Second Wind by throwing a Dawn Stone to his Kirlia to evolve him into Gallade during Team Akuma's attack on Lumiose City. He threw it to Lady Ledian's Kirlia instead. Cue the Dawn Stone having no effect on her.
  • Friendless Background: Adrien, before the story begins, had a strict upbringing as a result of being groomed to become the next Kalos Champion after his father. The first time he was allowed around peers his age was at the beginning of Lumiose Trainer Academy, even though Gabriel could've had him train and learn about Pokémon in the frigid forests outside of Snowbelle City.
  • Friend to All Living Things: A rare male example. As shown by his encounter with the Ralts and Cubone, Adrien has a natural charm to him that draws them in. This likely came from Gabriel's strict training prior to his enrollment in Lumiose Academy.
  • Generation Xerox: Adrien is expected to be the next Kalos Champion after Gabriel, but his personal feelings on the matter might say otherwise.
  • Gilded Cage: How he felt about his life prior to Lumiose Academy and being a Pokémon trainer. He enjoys travelling across Kalos because he gets to explore different parts of the region and see all kinds of Pokémon.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Adrien has blonde hair and is extremely kind-hearted to both people and Pokémon alike.
  • Heroic BSoD: It's very subtle and fortunately temporary, but even since learning from Fu about his role in protecting Kalos and pointing out how his Undying Loyalty to Lady Ledian is both a strength and a weakness, Adrien has been distracted due to the conflict of these ideals. Battling Kagami and starting a friendship with her in Chapter 58 has begun to help him understand more about the meaning of Fu's words and to do more than simply throw his life away for the sake of appeasing others.
  • Hidden Depths: As Liepard Noir when Marinette stumbles upon him in Chapter 51, he shares a rather excellent take on the concept of perfection being a process and not a state of being. It's likely he gained a better understanding of perfection because his father pushes him so much.
  • Honor Before Reason:
    • At the end of Chapter 53, the reason Adrien feels that he should keep going to the next Gym in Snowbelle City instead of going back to Anistar City to watch the Showcase has been due to his father showing more concern for his well-being as of recent starting from the end of Chapter 52. While it's good for Adrien to finally receive positive support from his father, it also lands him in potential trouble due to someone significant catching up to him, calling him out as the Champion's son.
    • In Chapter 58, Adrien doesn't plan on Mega Evolving Gallade when Kagami reveals her Bisharp, stating that he wants it to be an even fight. The final round starts off somewhat evenly before Bisharp gets ahead due to Gallade not knowing any effective moves against the dual Dark and Steel-type. It's only after Kagami calls him out on his poor performance that Adrien shapes up, refocuses on a new strategy that culminates in Gallade learning Close Combat, and ending the battle in a draw.
  • I Just Want to Be Free: He'd rather not have the heavy expectations of succeeding his father as the next Kalos Champion. Adrien desires to travel around, make new friends, and enjoy the ups and downs of a normal Pokémon journey.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Why he wanted to enroll into Lumiose Academy four years prior to the story.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: As to attest to his remarkable skill as a Trainer, he has a team with diverse roles. There's Plagg, Pyroar, Mega Gallade, Meowstic, and Marowak.
  • The Jinx: Adrien believes he has bad luck in and out of battles.
  • Knight In Sour Armor: Downplayed. Whether as Adrien or Liepard Noir, he still maintains a rather optimistic outlook. However, he tends to reveal a bit of his insecurities either as a Trainer or hero.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Downplayed. Liepard Noir is known to be reckless, but in Chapter 42, he immediately starts attacking Bubbler X's Mega Blastoise upon sending out Gallade without bothering to listen to Lady Ledian. And against Mega Blastoise, Gallade's attacks barely scratch his defenses. His carelessness also allows his Gallade to be confused after one hit from Mega Blastoise's Water Pulse. They both get better after a slap from Lady Ledian and Gardevoir.
  • Love at First Sight: Downplayed. When he started as Liepard Noir, he was friendly if flirty to fellow new hero Lady Ledian, even defending her against the Team Akuma gurnt's taunts. He falls for her after she stands up to both the grunts and Poison Moth and following the first victory over Team Akuma and saving Ivan, Adrien makes a Declaration of Protection for Lady Ledian, particularly the girl beneath the Ledian mask, once he and Lady Ledian part ways and is alone.
    Adrien: (after taking off his Liepard Noir mask) "Lady Ledian... Whoever you are behind the red mask, I will love you no matter what. I will make sure you stay safe so that you can protect Kalos and continue bringing smiles to everyone."
  • Morality Pet: To Chloé, since he's the only one she actually tries to be nice to.
  • Mr. Exposition: Between him and Lady Ledian, he's the one who's more knowledgeable on different Pokémon abilities and the history of the Kalos region, thus has to sometimes explain it to her.
  • Nice Guy: Adrien is a friendly and helpful boy to his friends and Pokémon. He obtained Cubone/Marowak in his team because he showed kindness to her after she helped him and Alya in Glittering Cave.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Because of his brash habit of protecting Lady Ledian with his own Pokémon, Liepard Noir was left defenseless when Team Akuma Grunts placed a peculiar device said to drain his Key Stone's energies in Chapter 51, which would include the portion of Yveltal's power imbued into it. However, even with Delphox Rouge and Trixx destroying the device, Poison Moth reveals that the device's true nature was to scan all energy wavelengths of the Key Stone and send the data back to Team Akuma's database as quickly as possible. This includes Yveltal's energy signal, which he can now use to locate the Destruction Pokémon anywhere in Kalos.
  • The Nicknamer: As Liepard Noir, he has given out nicknames for significant female friends.
    • For Lady Ledian, he uses my Lady, Double L, and Scatterbug-a-boo.
    • For Marinette, he interchangeably calls her "Espurr-incess" and "little Ledyba".
    • For Delphox Rouge in Chapter 52, he's called her "little Fennekin" a few times. He also called her Ms. Delphox and Rouge the Swoobat for fun.
  • Oblivious to Love: Or at least painfully oblivious to Marinette's feelings for him. Not helped that he seems to have eyes for Lady Ledian, but he is working on understanding her better.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: When Nino was turned into a Bond Hybrid in Chapter 43, the usually wisecracking and goofy Liepard Noir is dead serious, not even wasting his time in battling Team Akuma Grunts. Lady Ledian even lampshades this when he didn't even made a single pun. It may also have to do with the fact Adrien blames himself for allowing Nino to try to reason with his father, knowing how bad it would turn out.
  • Pretty Boy: Adrien is noted to be very good-looking.
  • Pungeon Master: Tosses out Pokémon puns, particularly as Liepard Noir, which still induces a Lame Pun Reaction for Lady Ledian, aka Marinette. Strangely enough, he tossed out a few Poképuns as himself early on in the story. Marinette’s reaction towards Adrien, however, appears to zigzag between groans and girlish giggles.
  • Purple Is the New Black: Liepard Noir's outfit is described to have an intermingled mix of purple and black, leading closer to the latter, hence why he has "noir" in his hero name. Then again, Adrien could've come up with the name because he thinks it sounds cool.
  • Spirited Competitor: While Adrien's only interested in gaining the Champion title to please his father, he genuinely enjoys the thrill of Pokémon battles. This is prominent whenever he faces against his friends and the stakes aren't high; he doesn't care whether he wins or loses, just the enjoyment that comes from it. It is even noted by other characters that Adrien becomes less reserved and more lively whenever he battles just for fun.
  • Stepford Smiler: As the Champion's son, Adrien feels restricted with the expectations to succeed his father beneath his affable exterior. In Chapter 41, after his one-sided battle against his father and his harsh criticism, Adrien remains calm despite being deeply affected by them. Not helped that half of the audience started bad mouthing his performance.
  • Strong and Skilled: He's considered one of the most skilled trainers, having a balanced team and knowledgeable in various Pokémon facts. He's often called 'Ace Trainer' as recognition of his skill. Though this trope is played as when he's Liepard Noir, he's more of a powerhouse compare to Lady Ledian but his recklessness and rash actions often holds back his full potential.
  • Training from Hell: Under Gabriel's strict supervision, Adrien was forced to learn how to battle at Manon's age by battling against Nathalie, who was told not to hold back. He also had to learn while in the frigid forests of Snowbelle City prior to Lumiose Academy, which consequently gave him an immunity against the cold.
  • Transformation Trinket: He was given a Key Stone in the form of a ring courtesy of Master Fu and is connected to Yveltal. His Gallade owns a Galladite that's kept in a black waist belt that was given as gift from Lady Ledian.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Although Adrien's not interested in succeeding his father, he hoped that competing in the Kalos League and facing against him would bring his father back. In Chapter 41, this bites him back during the exhibition match against his father. Adrien took pleasing Gabriel as top priority during the battle that he was out of sync with his Mega Gallade, resulting him unable fully use the new abilities and potential of his Pokémon's Mega Evolved Form.
  • Well, Excuse Me, Princess!: Liepard Noir invokes the quote with Marinette in Chapter 39, completely butchering it with Pokémon puns.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Combined with Skewed Priorities as Liepard Noir, he and his Pokémon frequently take the hit for Lady Ledian. She calls him out on it in Chapter 51 during a confrontation with Team Akuma in Frost Cavern, as Gallade holding back the Akuma Grunts' Houndour left Liepard Noir defenseless. The Grunts took advantage and captured Liepard Noir to drain his Key Stone of Yveltal's power.
  • The Worf Effect: Adrien has been established as a skilled Trainer in the story that him losing to someone else in a fair fight would mean the person is a strong competitor. His one-sided battle against his father shows just how much of a challenge facing the Champion would be.

     Adrien's Pokémon 
Although having no interest in becoming the next Champion, Adrien enjoys the freedom that comes with his Pokémon journey. From exploring the Kalos region to meeting a variety of Pokémon, some of which end up joining him in his journey. Sharing a close bond with their trainer, Adrien's Pokémon are known for their balance dynamic under his tutelage despite each having some unique quirks and personalities, some which they share with Adrien.
  • Not So Above It All: All of Adrien's Pokémon developed more serious and focused personalities by their final evolution. They all still retained their more comical and goofy sides however, with Plagg still a lazy glutton, Gallade sharing his trainer's sense of humor, and Pyroar going along with his trainer's whim to please his crush.
  • True Companions: Despite their unique personalities, they are devoted to training and bonding with each other as they are to Adrien.

Purrloin/Liepard (Plagg)

Adrien's starter Pokémon. Met at Professor Damocle's Pokémon reserve. Lazy, sarcastic, and gluttonous, but he really does care for Adrien's well-being, just like his Kwami counterpart.
  • Action Initiative: His Ability, Prankster, allows him to use support status moves before the opponent can act.
  • Big Eater: Another notable personality trait of his carried over from the main show. Adrien uses this sometimes to get Plagg to cooperate and be serious in a fight.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Quite a powerful Pokémon that was able to last a few rounds in the Fighting-type Shalour Gym, but is all around unmotivated unless cheese is involved.
  • Casting a Shadow: Is a Dark-type that knows Dark Pulse.
  • Confusion Fu: Knows Assist, a rare move that allows him to use any move among Adrien's team and results vary.
  • Cute Kitten: As a Purrloin.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: A Dark-type Pokémon that's not very sociable, but Plagg is far from evil. Just a lazy snarker at worst.
  • Fragile Speedster: As a Purrloin/Liepard, Plagg has incredible speed and attack power, but very abysmal defenses.
  • Horse of a Different Color: Liepard Noir used him as quick transportation when Team Akuma attacked Geosenge Town with their first Bond Hybrid after Plagg evolved into a Liepard for sometime. Judging how Plagg demanded Moo Moo Cheese after the crisis was resolved, he's harder to convince compare to Pyroar.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Tends to annoy and snark at his Trainer, at times while enjoying his frustrated reactions. Is also described to be the least social Pokémon, requires to be fed Moo Moo Farm cheese to be put into action. But he does have a strong sense of loyalty to those he considers friends, particularly Tikki, and was described as "uncharacteristically serious and determined" when facing Team Akuma for the first time in Chapter 20 as they were a threat to his Trainer and friends. In addition, he really does care for Adrien's well-being, with his lazy tendencies encouraging Adrien to relax more. He even appeared genuinely happy for Adrien by the end of Chapter 34, giving him a nod of satisfaction after escorting Marinette home.
  • One-Hit Kill: Plagg's Shadow Claw, probably to represent Cataclysm with its high critical-hit ratio.
  • Panthera Awesome: Plagg's form as a Liepard is of a spotted black leopard while still retaining his personality as a lazy domestic cat.
  • Parrot Pet Position: As a Purrloin, he would sometimes ride on Adrien's shoulders when outside his Poké Ball. As a fully grown Liepard, he can't do that anymore.
  • Random Effect Spell: He knows Assist, which picks a random move known by any fellow party member.
  • Soul Power: Knows Shadow Claw, a Ghost-type move.
  • Silent Snarker: Wouldn't be Plagg without the attitude.
  • Starter Mon: Adrien's first Pokémon.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Cheese, as usual, particularly Moomoo Farm brand cheese.

Litleo/Pyroar

Adrien's second Pokémon. Caught off screen in Route 4. Represents Adrien's maturity and nobility, as well as being a feline-based Pokémon.
  • Badass Adorable: As Litleo before evolving into a King of Beasts.
  • Butt-Monkey: Downplayed. While he wasn't thrilled over being reduced into a ride Pokémon for his Trainer, even though it's mostly to help fight against Team Akuma, he's taken the role with stride overtime. Played straight over the fact that he winds up becoming infatuated with the opponent every time he's sent to battle onscreen.
  • Cute Kitten: Back when he was a Litleo, which ties into Adrien's cat motif.
  • Fiery Redhead: When he was a Litleo, he was a fiery little cub who'd attempt to imitate a Mighty Roar. After he evolved into a Pyroar, he seems to have mellowed down, being the Only Sane Man in Adrien's team.
  • Glass Cannon: He has high Special Attack as well as Speed, but his defense is pretty frail.
  • Horse of a Different Color: Liepard Noir rides him as his steed to get to places fast and to impress Lady Ledian, much to Pyroar's embarrassment.
    • He seems to have gotten used to the role as of Chapters 51 and 52 in carrying his Trainer and Lady Ledian between Dendemille Town and Frost Cavern.
  • King of Beasts: As Pyroar, which represents Adrien's noble and heroic side.
  • Kill Streak: He has the ability Moxie.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: He knows Noble Roar.
  • Non-Elemental: He is Secondary Normal-Type.
  • Only Sane Man: His personality compared to the rest of his teammates.
  • Panthera Awesome: A feline-based Pokémon that's inspired by real life lions.
  • Playing with Fire: Part Fire-type that knows Flamethrower and Fire Fang.
  • Silent Snarker: Pyroar's reaction concerning Liepard Noir riding him to impress Lady Ledian.
  • Worf Had the Flu: In Chapter 51 and 52, Pyroar would have given Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir the advantage over the brainwashed Mega Abomasnow that Team Akuma was using during the first half of the battle. However, Pyroar's stamina has been mostly used up as a mode of transportation for Liepard Noir and Lady Ledian, thus he has to sit the fight out.

Ralts/Kirlia/Gallade

Adrien's third captured Pokémon. Caught in Route 4 at the same time Marinette captures his friend. A little more outgoing than Marinette's Ralts and rather adventurous, he takes on Adrien's true personality along the way.
  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: From Chapter 52 onwards, he wears a black waist belt that Lady Ledian gave him, which holds his Galladite.
  • Badass Cape: Played with. In the Beach Episode, he wore a make-shift cape to impress his childhood friend. He finally gains one as Mega Gallade, which he uses to cushion the damage he takes from attacks.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Upon evolving into Gallade, he becomes part Fighting-type. In Chapter 58, he learns Close Combat during Adrien's battle against Kagami's Bisharp.
  • Birds of a Feather: Shares many personality traits with Adrien, illustrating their growth together.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: He has two of them on both arms, which is efficient for dual wielding.
  • Blade Lock: Engaged Kagami's Bisharp in a couple of these during their battle in Chapter 58.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Knew Marinette's Ralts prior to their capture by their respective Trainers.
  • Dance Battler: Even after evolving into Gallade, he's always moving and jumping around. He even has the move Sword Dance.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Gallade learns Close Combat; a powerful Fighting-type attack with a high accuracy rate. However, it also lowers Gallade's Defense and Special Defense each time he uses it. Which is why he was only able to fight Kagami's Bisharp to a draw in Chapter 58.
  • Diagonal Cut: How Gallade often uses Slash. He uses this to finish off the male Team Akuma Admin's Drapion, invoking a bit of a delayed reaction as he retracts his elbow blade after appearing behind Drapion. This is likely his favored Finishing Move.
  • Disability Superpower: Gallade's Steadfast Ability increases his Speed whenever he's made to flinch. In Chapter 58, Adrien took advantage of Kagami's Bisharp's Iron Head attack in order to increase Gallade's Speed so they can turn the tide of the battle.
  • Discard and Draw: After he evolves into Gallade, he loses his Fairy-typing in exchange for being part Fighting-type. He also loses his immunity to Dragon-Type attacks and is vulnerable to Fairy-types and Flying-types in exchange for high resistance against Rock, Steel and Poison attacks.
  • Dork Knight: He has his trainer's sense of humor and more Adorkable traits, even participating in victory "Super Sentai" Stance poses with Liepard Noir and Meowstic in Chapter 40. Bonus Points that his Mega Evolved form is inspired by a knight.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Back when he was a Kirlia, it was hard to differentiate between him and a female Kirlia to the point when Liepard Noir attempted to evolve him as Gallade in an epic fashion, he threw his Dawn Stone to Lady Ledian's (female) Kirlia. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Immune to Flinching: Thanks to his ability Inner Focus as Mega Gallade.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: His appearance is this as Gallade, losing his part Fairy-Type and becoming part Fighting-Type.
  • Lady and Knight: The Knight to Marinette's Gardevoir's Lady.
  • Lightning Bruiser: As Mega Gallade.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: He knows Disarming Voice.
  • Mythology Gag: The Mega Evolution Transformation Sequence for Gallade is described to match Cat Noir's transformation from the show.
  • Psychic Powers: Is part Psychic-Type and knows Psycho Cut.
  • Shock and Awe: Used to know Shock Wave.
  • Signature Move: Psycho Cut.
  • Status Buff: Knows Swords Dance.
  • Super Mode: Is able to Mega Evolve into Mega Gallade.
  • Taking the Bullet: He inherited his trainer's self-sacrificing nature when it comes to protecting others. Most notably he protected Lady Ledian's Gardevoir from a group of Houndours, leaving him incapacitated and unable to defend his trainer.

Meowstic

Adrien's fourth Pokémon caught off screen. Represents Adrien's supportive role as Cat Noir.
  • Action Initiative: Has Prankster like Plagg, allowing him to quickly set up Reflect and Light Screen before major damage is done.
  • Barrier Warrior: Uses Reflect and Light Screen as support, which help mitigate and block damage in battles.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He looks after Marinette's Togepi during the Beach Episode.
  • Cute Kitten: His pre-evolution, Espurr, is cute, but even the evolved Meowstic of both genders are considered cute.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: He is described to have a bit of a hero complex, thinking of the greater good than anything else. This is best shown when he protects Lady Ledian's Kirlia without orders from his trainer, taking the hit meant for her. No doubt there that Meowstic inherited his trainer's self-sacrificing recklessness.
  • Dork Knight: Participates in victory "Super Sentai" Stance poses with Liepard Noir and Gallade, particularly after saving Lumiose City in Chapter 40.
  • Psychic Powers: A Psychic-type whose only offensive move is Psychic.
  • Support Party Member: As the male variant, Meowstic is not good at offense with Psychic being his only known offensive move. He compensates with Reflect, Light Screen, and Helping Hand. He represents Adrien's desire to protect others and providing support to Lady Ledian like in the main show.

Cubone/Marowak

Adrien's fifth Pokémon. Encountered at Glittering Cave. Represents Adrien's lonely nature, at least with Cubone. Also wields a staff like Cat Noir does.
  • Bad with the Bone: Living up to her species, she uses a bone staff and knows Bonemerang and Bone Rush. Her wielding a bone staff is also meant to reference Cat Noir's Weapon of Choice.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: She became attached to Adrien after the latter treated her kindly and thanked her for saving them from Team Akuma. When he offered her to be part of his team, she quickly agreed.
  • Birds of a Feather: Going by her species' depressing background and their moniker as the Lonely Pokémon, it's implied Adrien kindness and compassion towards Cubone also stems from understanding and empathizing with the Pokémon, knowing what it's like to lose a parent.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Cubone is hostile towards Marinette and Chloé, especially when the latter starts clinging onto Adrien. Downplayed after evolving into Marowak and mellowing out upon maturing, but is still very protective over Adrien and sees Marinette as a potential threat to his well-being.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: She's a pure Ground-type.
  • Elemental Punch: She knows Thunder Punch, which is helpful when combating her elemental weakness Water-Type. It was the finishing move on Mr. Pidgeot and his Mega Pidgeot.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch:
    • In Chapter 29, Adrien mentioned that when Chloé got too clingy with him when they reunited in Coumarine City, the first thing Cubone does is whack the spoiled brat on the shin with her cub just to give Adrien some space.
    • She nearly does this in Chapter 48 to Lila, intending to make her pay for forcibly kissing Adrien against his will. Sadly, Adrien stops her before she can seriously hurt the girl, believing it would make them as bad as her.
  • Mama Bear: After evolving into a Marowak, she has mellowed out her Clingy Jealous Girl tendencies and instead becomes extremely protective towards Adrien, as shown when she was willing to clobber Lila for her Forceful Kiss on Adrien.
  • Mighty Glacier: Marowak has high base defense and sufficient attack power, combined with the fact that she can certainly hit hard with her club.
  • Parental Substitute: Interestingly played with as she's shown to be very protective of Adrien since joining his team, probably to make up for his Missing Mom and the Parental Neglect from his father.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang: Bonemerang.
  • Properly Paranoid: Cubone/Marowak is overprotective towards Adrien, especially towards human girls, but not without reason. She knows how popular Adrien with the many suitors he has, but is too polite and kind to turn them down. Combine with how clingy some of them get with Adrien(i.e. Chloé and Lila), she's wary that they'll violate Adrien's personal space without consent. This suspicion is proven true when Lila kiss Adrien without his consent in Chapter 48. Although she knows that Marinette has cleaner intentions compared to his fangirls, she's still cautious on the chances that Marinette might be a liability towards Adrien due to her clumsy nature.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Was more than willing to beat Lila senseless upon catching her stealing Adrien's Sacred First Kiss out of personal entitlement, but unfortunately Adrien held her back.
  • Samus Is a Girl: In Chapter 54, Wayhem didn't know she was female until Kagami pointed that out to him. Needless to say, Marowak was unimpressed by this.
  • Shock and Awe: Knows Thunder Punch, presumably to handle her weakness against Water Pokémon.
  • Shrinking Violet: When Adrien and Alya met her for the first time, she was hesitant in appearing in front of the two until Adrien assured her that they mean no harm.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Is the only known female Pokémon on Adrien's team.

A girl with a strong sense of justice and a fan of superheroes, she quickly becomes the Defenders of Kalos' biggest fan — not knowing that Lady Ledian is Marinette. In Chapter 29, her internship to Lumiose Press has been accepted and she has to leave Marinette occasionally. Alya takes her love of superheroes up a notch by becoming one herself upon acquiring her own Key Stone to invoke Mega Evolution with, debuting as Delphox Rouge at the end of Chapter 51.
  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: In Chapter 52, her Medicham is shown to wear a necklace like Delphox Rogue that holds her Medichamite.

  • Ascended Fangirl: She's a big fan of superheroes and she has been following the adventures of Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir since their debut with every chance she can get. She finally made her choice to become a superheroine herself and makes her debut in Chapter 51 as Delphox Rouge, saving the heroic duo in time.
  • Attention Whore: Not Alya herself but Trixx, her Fennekin/Braixen/Delphox prior to being captured. During Trixx's time in Professor Damocles' lab, she would act out in order to get some sort of attention since she's bored. But it's implied that it's also because none of the beginning Trainers pick her as a starter, preferring to choose her fellow starters and the more popular Fire-Type Pokémon, neglecting her as a result.
  • Best Friend: To Marinette. To two are close as sisters who support each other and Marinette often shares her worries with her.
  • Big Damn Heroes: At the end of Chapter 51, she and Trixx save Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir while they were in a pinch in Frost Cavern as a new hero calling herself Delphox Rouge.

  • Catchphrase:
    • When Alya catches a new Pokémon, she declares, "News flash, my peeps! I just caught a —!".
    • When Mega Evolving Medicham, she says "Let's lunge! Mega Evolve!" Lunge is a synonym of pounce, which is the English transformation phrase for Trixx in the main show.
  • Character Tics: Whenever Marinette forgets something important or going through her wild imaginative scenarios, Alya would always shake her head with a Facepalm.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Alya is known for her love of superheroes and her strong sense of truth and justice that she's not afraid of standing up to wrongdoings, even when its putting her safety at risk. She eventually takes the initiative of becoming one to openly help out Lady Ledian, debuting as the heroine Delphox Rouge at the end of Chapter 51.
  • Cool Big Sis: She takes care her of her younger twin sisters, so is good at handling children, especially those who are mischievous. As a result, she acts like one to her more tricky Pokémon like Trixx and Rotom. She also behaves like one to Manon in Chapter 36.
  • The Dreaded: Her Rotom and Played for Laughs. When Marinette learns that Alya caught the Rotom that shocked her a few moments ago, she becomes ''horrified'' that Alya has another Electric-Type that will shock her.
  • Facepalm: Marinette's antics are often the cause of this.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Her Amaura is part Rock-Type.

  • Fragile Speedster: Alya's Elekid evolved into Electabuzz, his speed increase but his defense is feeble.
  • Genre Savvy: Thanks to her desire to snag a big scoop and her strong sense of justice stemming from reading about superheroes, Alya knows to hide her face from Team Akuma by sneaking around the Grunts to avoid being on their hit list since she's not wearing a mask like Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir. And she doesn't mind openly lending a hand against a Bond Hybrid since their ties to Team Akuma would be severed once Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir undo the fusion and their memories under Poison Moth's control disappear.
  • Gentle Giant: The first thing Alya's Amaura does when she's brought to life is to curiously greet her new trainer with a light head nudge.
  • Glass Cannon:
    • Alya's Porygon-Z has high Special Attack but cannot take hits.
    • The Rotom she captures also has high Special Attack, but it's stats are mediocre at best.
  • Grew Beyond Their Programming: Despite it's glitchy programme, Alya's Porygon-Z is implied to take interest in its surrounding and the reason it shocked Marinette was simply to see her reaction.
  • Haunted Technology: Her Rotom is known to be able to posses electrical appliances, and in this case, it has so far possessed Max's and Marinette's smart phone.
  • An Ice Person: Alya's Amaura is part Ice-Type and has the ability Refrigerate, which turns all of her Normal-Type Attacks into Ice-Type Attacks.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Alya aims to be a top journalist for the Lumiose Press and uncover the mysteries and history of Kalos and Mega Evolution. She uploads these findings in her personal online Pokéblog, 'Catch'em All, Alya Césaire! Findings of a Fabulous Trainer!' which updates on close friends and families on what she has found. It eventually becomes a communication hub for Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir to communicate with each other regarding to Team Akuma, Mega Evolution and the Key Stones. She had to part ways with Marinette when her internship to Lumiose Press has been accepted, but after proving her dedication and great work to the head editor, she is allowed to travel with Marinette again to continue providing more findings.
  • It Was a Gift: Alya's explanation for her Key Stone, stated word for word in Chapter 53.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Some of Alya's Pokémon are impish tricksters who cause trouble for fun ( Trixx, Rotom, and even Elekid/Electabuzz). However, they have shown to be loyal Pokémon towards their trainer Alya.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Her Meditite/Medicham.
  • Meaningful Name: Her hero moniker combines her Miraculous hero name from the main series, Rena Rouge, with Delphox, Trixx's final evolved form.
  • Mighty Glacier: Alya's Amaura has high HP and Special Attack, and boasts some impressive defenses. Unfortunately, she is fragile against her Kryptonite Factor.
  • Mr. Exposition: She's the one who digs up every new intel she can find regarding to location, landmarks and myths and explains them to Marinette.
  • Mythology Gag: The Mega Evolution Transformation Sequence for Medicham is described to match Rena Rouge's transformation from the show.
  • No Biological Sex: Alya's Porygon-Z and later Rotom don't have a gender.
  • Ominous Visual Glitch: Alya's Porygon-Z as due to its programming, as shown in its debut chapter where it spaz out just by moving.
  • The Gadfly: While not as bad as Trixx and Rotom, Alya's Elekid/Electabuzz seems to enjoy a little too much on electrocuting Marinette whenever she daydreams, doing mostly cause her reactions are funny.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Alya's Rotom is a plasmatic force with the ability to posses physical objects, though mostly electrical objects.
  • Playing with Fire: Trixx, who is a Delphox as of Chapter 52.
  • Power Floats: Her Rotom has the ability Levitate, which helps it become immune to Ground-Type.
  • The Prankster: The author attributes Alya having two mischievous Pokémon to her younger twin sisters, one of them being notorious for their naturally mischievous nature; Trixx, her Fennekin/Braixen/Delphox and Rotom .
  • Psychic Powers: Alya's Meditite/Medicham and [[spoiler Trixx her Fennekin/Braixen/Delphox]] are part Psychic-Type while her Porygon-Z is a full Psychic-Type.
  • Psycho Electro: Downplayed. Contrary to belief, Alya's Elekid/Electabuzz is a loyal Pokémon companion to his trainer even if he does he have The Gadfly tendencies. He helps keep Alya in line whenever her desire for a scoop overrides her common sense and safety. Even his tendency to shock Marinette is not out of malicious intent and only Played for Laughs.
  • Secret Art: Her Meditite/Medicham has the skill Pure Power, which doubles their somewhat subpar attack.
  • Secretly Selfish: Downplayed. Although Alya set up the beach date between Marinette and Adrien because she genuinely wanted her best friend to get closer to her crush, the other reason why she organized it was so it could make up to Marinette when she has to leave her for her internship that she hadn't told her yet. Alya realized how poor her timing was.
  • Shipper on Deck: Naturally, being Marinette's best friend and self-proclaimed wingwoman, often encouraged Marinette to talk to Adrien more and tries to help her friend get closer to him.
  • Shock and Awe: She has a number of Electric-Type Pokémon like her Elekid/Electabuzz and Rotom, which ties into her techno savviness. Her Porygon-Z also knows Zap Cannon.
  • So Proud of You: She expresses this for Trixx once she evolves into a Delphox in Chapter 52, thinking back to how far the Fox Pokémon has come, starting as a lonely trickster that lived in Professor Damocles's lab for a long time before becoming a powerful ally in Alya's team.
  • Soul Power: Alya's Rotom is part Ghost-Type.
  • Starter Mon: She started with Elekid, which is to represent Alya's usage of technology. Though Alya eventually gets the traditional Kalos Fire-type, Trixx the Fennekin/Braixen who ties into her Fox Motif.
  • Super Mode: Her Medicham achieves Mega Evolution for the first time in Chapter 52.
  • Tsundere: Trixx is a Type-A. She's a prideful and tricky prankster who'll occasionally perform the classic Tsundere gesture of folding her arms and turning away with a 'Humph!' expression. However, it's all to hide her insecurities and loneliness and she gave Alya a big Bear Hug when the bespectacled girl accepted her as part of the team.
  • Transformation Trinket:
    • In Chapter 51, Alya reveals having obtained a Key Stone offscreen, supposedly by an "old acquaintance" of a Lumiose Press staff member that wanted Alya to have it, and accessorizing it as a charm for her cell phone. In addition, a few chapters ago, her Medicham found a Medichamite while they were still in Laverre City. As Delphox Rouge, she wears her Key Stone as a necklace with Medicham also wearing a necklace that holds her Medichamite.
    • As Delphox Rouge, her Key Stone is placed into a pendant shaped like Delphox's tail.
  • The Trickster: Trixx and her Rotom are both tricky Pokémon. Even Elekid isn't exempted from this though he's a downplayed example compared to the others.
  • Troll: Her Rotom, due to its stated fondness for shocking Marinette through electric appliances, particularly phones. It even electrocuted Marinette when she touched Max's possessed phone before Alya captured it back at the Lost Hotel in Chapter 49.
  • Verbal Tic: She often says "girl" when speaking with Marinette.
  • Virtual Ghost: Alya's Porgon-Z can travel between cyberspace.

     Nino Lahiffe 
Adrien's best friend and friendly rival. Nino is an aspiring DJ who is competing for the Kalos League like his best friend. He incorporates music in his battling style, making him a fun and unpredictable contender for the League. He is still loyal to Adrien and tries to help him out as much as he can. In Chapter 42, he gets turned into a Bond Hybrid after a harsh talk with Gabriel in regards to Adrien's performance in Chapter 41.
  • Barrier Warrior: His Squirtle/Wartortle/Blastoise knows the move Protect and uses his shell to deflect attacks.
  • Best Friend: To Adrien. They both support and help each other out even when they are rivals and Adrien often confides to Nino about his troubles.
  • Dance Battler: He trains his Pokémon to incorporate a combination of music and dancing in their battle styles, with some pulling off some stylish attacks. His Lotad/Lombre/Ludicolo is a good example.
  • Friendly Rival: He's Adrien's best friend and among the few who enjoys having a friendly Pokémon battle with him rather than viewing him as a major obstacle for the Kalos League.
  • Green Thumb: His Maractus is a Grass Type while Lotad/Lombre/Ludicolo has Grass-Type as a secondary element-type.
  • Making a Splash: He owns a Squirtle/Wartortle/Blastoise and Lotad/Lombre/Ludicolo, which represents his laid-back and outgoing attitude.
  • Musical Assassin: He aspires to incorporate musical beats and rhythms into his battling style. It helps that he owns Pokémon that have an affinity towards sound, such as Loudred and Maractus. There's also Ludicolo, who becomes more active and powerful upon hearing music.
  • Non-Elemental: He owns a Loudred who is a Normal-Type.
  • One-Man Army: Nino fends off a horde of trainers who want to challenge Adrien to Pokémon battles so that he may be able to take a break. Despite tiring out, he managed to hold his own long enough for the trainers to finally give up pursuing Adrien until he leaves Lumiose City.
  • Spin Attack: His Squirtle later Wartortle then Blastoise know Rapid Spin.
  • Spin to Deflect Stuff: Rapid Spin is a retroactive form, removing stage hazards and binding moves when used.
  • Starter Mon: Squirtle was his first Pokémon prior to graduating from Lumiose Academy, tying into his Akuma form in the original show.
  • Stone Wall: His Blastoise has excellent defense stats, but his offense stats are just average.
  • Totally Radical: Wouldn't be Nino without this.
  • Turns Red: His Squirtle/Wartortle/Blastoise ability Torrent boosts Water attacks when his health becomes low.
  • Turtle Power: His starter, Squirtle who eventually evolves into Wartortle and into his final form, Blastoise after his One-Man Army action.
  • Verbal Tic: He frequently uses "dude".

     Chloé Bourgeois 
Marinette's old bully turned rival and Adrien's childhood friend. Daughter of the President of the Pokémon Community, she believes she's entitled to be the next Kalos Champion and Queen. While she talks big, she lacks the skills that she constantly brags about, having a less than impressive win record. After her first major loss against Marinette thanks to her Servine disobeying her, she leaves the others, presumably to train seriously than before.
  • Alpha Bitch: She's an aggressive example; being an openly catty, petty and mean girl who's prone to throwing her father's name around to ensure she gets her way, proclaiming to be Kalos' Queen and still acts like one after graduating from Lumiose Academy. Played with though, like in the main series, she's not popular and her classmates barely tolerate her even after they graduated.
  • Amazon Brigade: All of Chloé's Pokémon in her team are female, with some notably feminine.
  • An Ice Person: She owns a Weavile, who knows Ice Punch and Ice Shard.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: Whenever she's frustrated during battles, particular whenever her opponent gains the upper hand, Chloé resorts to this in battles.
  • Bee Afraid: Pollen, her Vespiquen. Though she leans more to a wasp.
  • Bee Bee Gun: As a Vespiquen, Pollen has the ability to call upon a swarm of Combees to attack and defend on her behalf.
  • Big Damn Heroes: The Vespiquen that saved Sabrina during Team Akuma's citywide attack in Chapter 39 was implied to belong to Chloé. It is pretty much confirmed as Chloé was revealed to have caught Pollen just before the class reunion in Lumiose City and Team Akuma's attack.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Not Chloé since she doesn't even hide her unpleasant disposition, but invoked via Word of God (author's bio page) in regards of Chloé getting a Flaaffy. Chloé does try to play it straight by insisting that bad things happening are never her fault.
  • The Bus Came Back: After being missing for nearly twenty chapters, she makes a full appearance in Chapter 55, finding Marinette at the Anistar Sundial to challenge her for a rematch.
  • Casting a Shadow: Her Murkrow/Honchkrow and Weavile, both of which are part-Dark-type.
  • Catchphrase:
    • She frequently abuses her usage of the word "ridiculous" in expressing her disgust, just like in the main show.
    • In calling out her Vespiquen, she uses "Pollen, buzz on!"
  • Character Tics: Like her counterpart from the main show, Pollen is shown to curtsy before her Trainer as to acknowledge her as her queen as done after defeating Marinette and Tikki in Chapter 55.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She certainly doesn't like other girls pulling the moves on Adrien. A big reason why she actively dislikes Marinette, and later, Lila.
  • Creepy Crows: Owns a Murkrow/Honchkrow.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Chloé shows that if she does put in the effort, she actually has the skills to be a proficient trainer during her battle with Marinette, but is still inferior to her at the moment. In her return at Chapter 55, Chloé shows off how much stronger she's gotten since Coumarine City by defeating Marinette in a three-on-three battle.
  • Determinator: Aside from pushing herself and training her Pokémon during her absence to the point she can go toe-to-toe against Marinette, a flashback in Chapter 55 reveals Chloé, in a fit of desperation in preserving what's left of her dignity, tries fighting her future Vespiquen head-on as Servine still refuses to listen to her and Vespiquen was able to disarm her of her Flaaffy's Poké Ball. Sure Vespiquen threw Chloé down every time, but her determination was enough for Servine to step in and fight off Vespiquen and give Chloé another chance.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Chloé's reaction to Adrien after her Servine refuses to obey her and throws the match against Marinette.
  • Enemy Mine: Subverted when the subject of Lila was brought up during Chloé's reemergence in Chapter 55 as Chloé declares that she rather get Lila to back off from Adrien by her own hands instead of teaming up with Marinette.
  • Epic Fail: Chloé attempts to show off to Adrien during the informal Parfum Palace Tag Tournament that she was going to win, except that she didn’t and her match wounds up being described as the shortest one to date.
  • Everything's Worse with Bees: Pollen, her Vespiquen. She also knows Attack Order and Defend Order, which allow her to call upon nearby Combee to aid her in battle.
  • Fragile Speedster: Her Mukrow and Weavile are both fast with good offensive stats, but both are terrible at taking hits.
  • Freudian Excuse: Much like from the main show, Chapter 55 reveals Chloé's desire to be exceptional due to her neglectful mother, who left her behind at a very early age to pursue her career as a fashion critic in Unova. Because her mother was barely in her own daughter's life, Chloé never received the proper love and attention she needed to properly develop and mature, thus was presumably spoiled rotten by her father as to make up for it.
  • Gemstone Assault: Pollen knows Power Gem.
  • Glass Cannon: Weavile and Honchkrow. Both have excellent offensive stats and are agile, though her Honchkrow is slower than she was as Murkrow in exchange for higher HP. They both still have terrible defenses.
  • Hive Queen: Pollen can command and control nearby male Combees to her aid, which is shown in her first appearance in Chapter 55. Marinette points out it's basically brainwashing.
  • Irony: Her Murkrow/Honchkrow is known to be a harbinger of misfortune and her ability is Super Luck.
  • Insect Queen: Her Vespiquen, Pollen. Not only can she command a swarm of Combees, but prior to Chloé capturing her, she came to defend the Combees whom were intimidated by the spoiled girl.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Her former classmates barely tolerate her stuck-up and snooty attitude back at Lumiose Trainer Academy. During the intermission of the Showcase Performance, Marinette and her friends discussed the possibility of hosting another class reunion in Lumiose City and while reluctant, decided to invite Chloé since she was part of the class.
  • Green Thumb: Her Snivy/Servine is a Grass-Type.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • After Marinette runs away in shame and disappointment in herself after the first Tag Team battle because she felt she failed Adrien as a partner, Chloé proceeds to mock her to which Adrien tells her off for it.
    • When her newly evolved Honchkrow defeats Marinette's Togetic in their rematch battle in Chapter 55, she starts to belittle Togetic and Marinette's ability to raise her.
  • Jerkass: Chloé, nuff said, which she shares with her Snivy. Which backfires on her when Snivy evolves into a Servine and starts disobeying her.
  • Look What I Can Do Now!: After returning from her long absence from the story in Chapter 55, Chloé reveals that she has gotten much stronger than before, claiming she is a new Chloé Bourgeois set to become Kalos's new queen. She mentioned that things have changed for the better for her upon capturing Pollen, which include regaining her starter's obedience after claiming victory in many battles.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Very downplayed, however she has shown signs of this deep down. Pollen is implied to be the Vespiquen that saved Sabrina during Team Akuma's citywide attack in Chapter 39 under Chloé's orders and in Chapter 55, she comforted her fallen Weavile after an intense fist match against Marinette's Spinda and flashbacks reveal that she protected her Servine from her future Vespiquen, despite the latter's disobedience.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • In Chapter 55, the way Chloé is described to command her Honchkrow to use Sky Attack by flourishing her arms out like wings brings to mind how Paul from the Diamond & Pearl anime saga commands his Honchkrow to use that move. It somewhat helps as she also owns a Weavile like him.
    • In the same chapter, the method that Pollen administers her Toxic toxin is through pricking just like Queen Bee's Venom.
  • Non-Elemental: Her Meowth/Persian is a Normal-Type.
  • Only Friend: Chloé is this to Sabrina and before his enrollment to the Academy, Adrien. In Sabrina's case it gets deconstructed after she hasn't heard from Chloé since her loss to Marinette where it's clear that Sabrina is very dependent on her and has no idea where to go or what to do that doesn't involve Chloé.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: The fact that Chloé didn't run crying to her father nor returned to take comfort in her suite just shows how much she has gotten serious in training her Pokémon. Her first loss against Marinette did indeed affect her, but it was the fact that her once loyal Snivy's now disobeying her since evolving into Servine that's she's taking her loss hard.
  • Poisonous Person: Pollen knows Toxic, a powerful Poison-type move that worsens overtime to the point that the victim can be paralyzed by the pain alone, further referencing Queen Bee's Venom.
  • The Rival: Serves as this Marinette, though currently she isn't much to be considered a serious opponent until her reappearance in Chapter 55.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Her return in Chapter 55 not only displays her newfound strength by showing her newly acquired Anistar Gym Badge, but also with her newly evolved Honchkrow and the devastating powers of Pollen, her Vespiquen.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Being the daughter of the current president of the Pokémon community resulted in Chloé believing she's the best trainer to everyone except for Adrien. So far she hasn't won a single battle onscreen and Marinette proved to be a better trainer than her.
  • Smug Snake: She always acts like her classmates bar Adrien are beneath her despite having a less than stellar win record thus far. Having Snivy as her starter wasn't already a hint to her snotty attitude. After her first humiliating loss against Marinette thanks to her Servine refusing to listen to her, Chloé may have become more serious in training.
  • Starter Mon: Snivy, fittingly as it's said that Snivy are typically haughty SmugSnakes.
  • Status Buff: Pollen knows Defend Order, which has a swarm of Combees raising her defenses.
  • Stone Wall: Pollen has high defense and has the ability Pressure, making her a good staller. However, she has average offensive stats and low speed.
  • Strong, but Unskilled: Chloé has been shown to be an actual good trainer if she makes an effort in it and her Pokémon are shown to be no slouch. However, Chloé relies on her Pokémon's sheer power and unlike Marinette, isn't as creative in her strategies. That being said Pollen's battle against Tikki shows Chloé capable of utilizing her Pokémon's abilities and tactics if she puts her mind to it.
  • Unsportsmanlike Gloating: After Chloé won her rematch battle against Marinette in Chapter 55, she continues to rub it into Marinette's face, to the annoyance of Alya and the others.
  • Victory Is Boring: Despite beating Marinette, Chloé loses the glee she had initially due to Marinette able to handle it well than she anticipated. It is also implied that Marinette being supported by Alya and the others while she had no one was another factor that left her feeling empty in her victory.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Despite her significant rivalry with Marinette, Chloé hasn't been seen by anyone, nor has she made a full-screen appearance since her major loss to Marinette at Coumarine City in Chapter 27. Sabrina was talking to her over the phone during the Team Akuma attack aftermath in Chapter 40, but not even she knows where Chloé is at that point. She finally returns in Chapter 55 in Anistar City.
  • Zerg Rush: Pollen, Chloé's Vespiquen, can summon a bunch of Combees to her aid. In Chapter 55, she displays how terrifying it is; from swarming all over Tikki so she won't escape, to chasing her when she's badly poisoned and vulnerable to their queen's attacks.

     Sabrina Raincomprix 
Chloé's "best friend" and daughter of the Coumarine Gym Leader. Mostly referred as Chloé's lackey back at the Academy and now, as she does most of the grunt work for Chloé, which includes training their Pokémon. When not doing Chloé's dirty work, Sabrina isn't that bad. Ever since Chloé left her after losing against Marinette, Sabrina is left on her own, at lost on what she wants for herself.

     Alix Kubdel 
Marinette and Adrien's tomboyish classmate hailing from Shalour City, known for having a fierce rivalry with Kim. Comes from a family that descended from the original Trainer who first used Mega Evolution in Kalos with their Lucario. Her father is the leading guru of Mega Evolution while her older brother is the current Shalour Gym Leader. Alix is destined to eventually inherit the Gym Leader position, but for now, is proving to be a wild contender for the Kalos League with her speed-oriented battle style.
  • Badass Adorable: Several of her Pokémons are rather cute before they evolved, such as her Torchic, Tyrogue and Pikachu/Raichu.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: She owns a Tyrogue and after her Torchic evolves into Combusken and finally Blaziken, she becomes a part Fighting-Type, which fits her competitive, stubborn and tomboyish personality. Bonus points that her family runs a Gym that specializes in Fighting-Types.
  • Brutal Honesty: Alix is rather blunt in her approach to things, to the point it can come off as rude.
  • Capoeira: Once her Tyrogue evolves into a Hitmontop, which fits with Alix's Speed-oriented tactics and her love for rollerblading.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Alix's preference for Speed-oriented Pokémon and reliance on a hit-and-run tactic can be exploited when it becomes linear and predictable that her opponents can counter them or moves that would render High Speed stats moot, such as Trick Room.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She more or less lampshades Team Akuma's tacky wardrobe, all the while she and Marinette were cornered by them in Chapter 39 no less.
  • Death-or-Glory Attack: Her Pikachu knows Volt Tackle, which cause recoil damage to the user.
  • Everyone Has Standards: She may be an enthusiastic Pokémon battler who wouldn't mind a good showdown, but even she thought the brutal fist-fight between Marinette's Spinda and Chloé's Weavile was too much for her to witness.
  • Everything Is Better With Spinning: Naturally, Alix's Hitmontop, who also knows Rolling Kick.
  • Fragile Speedster: Pikachu is speedy, but frail.
  • Gagging on Your Words: Having been the battle judge for Marinette and Chloé in Chapter 55, in the which the latter wins, Alix finds having to announce the decision tastes worse than her sweaty socks while sticking her tongue out.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • Despite not into girly things, Alix appreciates Pokémon Showcases.
    • Alix's favorite mythical Pokémon are Celebi and Dialgia.
  • Hot-Blooded: She rivals Kim in that department among other things. She's even like this when watching Pokémon Showcases as Nathaniel can attest to.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Alix may be a tough and stubborn girl who won't always be agreeable, but she's a loyal friend who won't back down when others are in danger.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: While she could've been nicer about it, Alix vents out her frustration over Marinette's obsession over Adrien in Chapter 56, possibly as a subtle Take That! towards Marinette's behavior in the early aired episodes of Season Three in the main show. Though there is a significant difference that here, Marinette had more than four years to make her move and actually progress her relationship with Adrien instead of moping about it.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Her Yanmega and Blaziken.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The tough Masculine Girl to Nathaniel's passive Feminine Boy.
  • The Napoleon: She's stated to be short compared to the others yet it doesn't stop her from being one of the most competitive Pokémon trainers gunning for the Kalos League and can be aggressive if she wants. Her Pikachu/Raichu mirrors this perfectly, being a small mouse-like Pokémon who can put up a fight.
  • Odd Friendship: A competitive and passionate tomboy who dislikes girly things like her is best friends with Nathaniel, a quiet Pokémon artist figuring out his place in the world. To add on, they both own a Fire Starter (Torchic and Cyndaquil respectively) and one of the special starter Pokémon (Pikachu and Eevee respectively again).
  • Parental Favoritism: Jalil believes their father favors her because she'll take over the position of Gym Leader once she's of age.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: Just like in the show, Alix is passionate about her rollerblading skills and is a major competitor in the upcoming Kalos League. Her Hitmontop even reflects on her competiveness nature.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The fiery Red Oni to Nathaniel's mellow Blue Oni.
  • The Rival: She has been Kim's fierce rival for a long time that he proclaims that he'll reserve her family's Gym for last.
  • Rollerblade Good: Outside of Pokémon battles, she takes rollerblading very seriously. She's a speed demon when on rollerblades and meets up with Marinette and Alya while rollerblading with a group in Chapter 10. She even mentions the Shalour Gym battlefield grounds for rollerblading and wanted to learn a special rollerblading move by the Twirling Whirlwind in Chapter 49. Both her Pikachu/Raichu and Yanma/Yanmega are speedster masters like her.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: With Nathaniel, shown in the Parfum Palace tag battle tournament.
  • Shock and Awe: Alix's Pikachu/Raichu.
  • Starter Mon: Alix's partner was her Torchic back in her Lumiose Academy days, both to represent her fiery and tomboyish personality and as a Foil to Kim. She also owns a Pikachu, who is considered a special Starter Mon.
  • Tomboy: She has a spirted and tough personality, enjoys roller-blading and Pokémon battles, and owns several robust-looking Pokémon.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Marinette noted that Alix's Pikachu has a heart-shaped tail, indicating she's a female.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: Alix's reaction when Marianne used Trick Room against Marinette in her Gym Battle is of dread in Chapter 56 due to the move having a detrimental effect on Pokémon with high speed.
  • Youngest Child Wins: She's expected to inherit the Shalour Gym Leader position from her brother once she is of age and is eventually given her family's precious heirloom Key Stone watch after she beat her brother in a Gym battle.

     Nathaniel Kurtzberg 
A quiet, redheaded classmate with artistic passion and unrequited feelings towards Marinette, though it seems he has gotten over her for the most part since graduating from the Academy. Unlike the rest of his classmates, Nathaniel isn't driven to compete in the Kalos League and is more interested in drawing out Pokémon he encounters during his travels. He does, however, appear supportive of Juleka and Rose in their pursuit to becoming Kalos Queen as he is fascinated by the artistry of Pokémon Showcase performances.
  • Art Attacker: To fit his artistic theme, he owns a Smeargle and a Horsea/Seadra, the latter due to the ability to spit ink. In addition, Nathaniel is able to utilize his artistic sense for impressive move combinations for battles and potentially performances.
  • Fiery Redhead: Inverted, as he's one of quietest former classmates with Juleka. His starter Cyndaquil/Quilava mirrors his timid personality.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: While he is currently content with drawing Pokémon he encounters in his travels, he seems to veering into this, feeling he wants to do more than just sketch.
  • Confusion Fu: His Smeargle can learn any moveset and can copy other Pokémon's powers with Sketch.
  • Making a Splash: His Horsea/Seadra.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The quiet Feminine Boy with soft features to Alix's tomboyish and aggressive Masculine Girl.
  • Moon Rabbit: Nathaniel's Umbreon after he evolved.
  • Non-Elemental: His Smeargle and Eevee are both Normal-Types before the latter evolved into Umbreon.
  • Odd Friendship: A non-action Pokémon artist who's still unsure of which career path to go into like him is best friends with Alix, a Hot-Blooded Tomboy who'll eventually become the next Shalour Gym Leader. They also both own a Fire Starter (Cyndaquil and Torchic respectively), and the unique starter Pokémon (Eevee and Pikachu respectively again).
  • Only Sane Man: Figuratively and literally in Chapter 54 when sitting with Alix, Marinette, and Alya during the Anistar Showcase, with Nathaniel wishing his friends were a little less high strung.
  • Power Copying: His Smeargle can use Sketch to permanently copy the last move his target uses.
  • Playing with Fire: His starter is a Cyndaquil/Quilava.
  • Psychic Powers: His Munna/Musharna is a Psychic-Type.
  • The Quiet One: Is almost as quiet as Juleka, but he's more expressive around Alix. His Umbreon represents his quiet personality.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The good-tempered Blue Oni to Alix's aggressive Red Oni.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Several Pokémon he has are pretty adorable, such as his Cyndaquil, Eevee/Umbreon, Horsea and Munna/Musharna.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: With Alix, shown in the Parfum Palace tag battle tournament.
  • Starter Mon: A Cyndaquil with a similar timid personality as his. He also owns an Eevee, who is also considered as another special Starter Mon.
  • Support Party Member: He's partnered with Alix during the Parfum Tag-team battle and Alix is the one to lead the pair in both battle and strategies while Nathaniel follows and provide support. Justified since Nathaniel is an artist, not a fighter and Alix is the more experienced battler between the two of them. His Smeargle shares this trait with him; he's no powerhouse, but his versatility allows him to pull off unique combos from behind the scenes.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Like Rose and Juleka, Nathaniel isn't interested in being a full-time Pokémon trainer like the rest of his former classmates gunning for the Kalos League. That being said, the Parfum Tag-Team battle shows that Nathaniel does utilize his artistic sense to produce surprisingly impressive and effective attacks. His Smeargle displays this perfectly too.

     Lê Chiên Kim 
The boisterous jock classmate of Marinette and Adrien from the Academy who shares an intense rivalry with Alix and is Max's best friend. Not the brightest bulb out there, but prefers brute force and pure power in his Pokémon battles any day. Kim plans to overwhelm the competition in the Kalos League, but not before he proves to Alix that he's the better Trainer.
  • Always Accurate Attack: His Machop/Machoke has the ability No Guard, meaning any move he has will always hit the opponent, even if the target is in a semi-invulnerable stage. Unfortunately, that also applies to any move against him as well, which both advantage and disadvantage were shown in the Tag Team Finals.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Tying into his boisterous attitude, his love for training, and rivalry with Alix, he owns a few Fighting-Type Pokémon. His Machop/Machoke is a pure Fighting-Type while his Hawlucha is part Fighting-Type.
  • Brains and Brawn: The overwhelming Brawn to Max's Brains, which is prominent during the Parfum Palace tag-team battle. This combination gave Marinette and Adrien a hard time in the final round. His Machop/Machoke perfectly fits this trope.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: He compares training for the Leagues no different from training for a marathon; to be in top physical shape and improving your stamina to last in the finals. Thus, he trains his Pokémon's endurance and master powerful moves. As a result some of his Pokémon can be both hard-hitters and durable, like his Machop/Machoke, bonus for having the stamina and strength to make good use of his No Guard Ability.
  • Competition Freak: Like in the main series, Kim enjoys sports, Pokémon battles and making bets (though, as of Chapter 10, he isn't allow to make bets for a year after losing his last bet). He is one of the few competitive contenders for the Kalos League, along with Alix.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Upon evolution, his Marshtomp/Swampert becomes part Ground-Type. His Claydol is also part Ground-Type.
  • Hot-Blooded: He rivals Alix in that department, especially during a competition, sport events or battles.
  • Jerk Jock: He can dip into this sometimes because of his arrogance and cocky attitude, not to mention headstrong in his battling style. Even his Machop/Machoke perfectly mirrors his jock personality and arrogance.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While still hotheaded and occasionally rude, he is generally kind and he helped the Parfum Palace's owner find his Furfrou. As thanks, the owner allowed him to organize the class reunion in Parfum Palace.
  • Lovable Jock: Despite his boastful nature, he still cares about his former classmates and with the help of the Parfum Place owner, organized a class reunion party so they can both test their current skills and meet up with each other. He even complements Max's strategies during their tag-team battle.
  • Making a Splash: His Mudkip/Marshtomp/Swampert and he knows Water Gun.
  • Mighty Glacier: His Machop/Machoke and Swampert.
  • Odd Friendship: The hotheaded and burly jock who loves battles, is close friends with Max, the smartest trainer from their class. In fact, they worked well together that their brain-brawn combo nearly won the Parfum Tag-Team battle.
  • Psychic Powers: Kim's Claydol is half Psychic-Type.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Kim is the hotheaded and brash Red Oni to Max's collected and strategic Blue Oni.
  • The Rival: He has been Alix's sworn rival since their Academy days and whenever they are in the same room, it's expected that they would immediately battle each other.
  • Starter Mon: Mudkip, as a foil to Alix's Torchic.
  • Strong, but Unskilled: Unlike Max's tactical approach to battles, Kim focuses more enduring and hitting harder till his opponent is down. His Machop/Machoke best shows this with his ability No Guard.

     Max Kanté 
Marinette and Adrien's highly intelligent classmate from the Academy and Kim's best friend, known for his use of sophisticated scientific vocabulary and tendency to spout out statistical facts regarding Pokémon moves and related physiology. In direct contrast to Kim, Max prioritizes clever strategy over power in his battles, which would surely make him quite the tricky opponent to deal with when faced in the Kalos League.
  • Agent Scully: As someone who relies on logic and numbers, Max would be the last person to admit that the Scary House rumors might be more than just Ghost-Type Pokémon playing around. Although his shaking legs might indicate otherwise.
  • Badass Bookworm: As The Smart Guy, Max is big on strategic planning in his Pokémon battles and was described by Adrien to be the top of the class in the written portion of the exams.
  • Bat Out of Hell: He owns a Zubat/Golbat/Crobat but she isn't villainous in anyway.
  • Blow You Away: His Zubat/Golbat/Crobat is part Flying-Type and knows Air Cutter.
  • Brains and Brawn: The analytic Brains to Kim's Brawn, which is highlighted during the Parfum Palace tag-team battle, both giving Marinette and Adrien a hard time. His starter, Abra/Kadabra naturally reflects this.
  • Did Not See That Coming: One of things that can throw off Max's strategies are whenever his opponent improvises on the spot or pure luck. He and Kim were thrown off when Marinette and Adrien's Pokémon managed to survive their combo attack through sheer luck that has a low chance of occurring. Even Max commented that luck is a factor that is unpredictable.
  • Extra Oredinary: Owns a Metang
  • Flaw Exploitation: He takes advantage of Type-weaknesses and analyzes his opponents battle style to find a way around it. This is shown in Chapter 49 in his battle against Alix, with him aware of Alix's preference for speed and agility with a hit-and-run tactic.
  • Fragile Speedster: His Seedot/Nuzleaf/Shiftry and Zubat/Golbat/Crobat are extremely fast, especially the former during the Parfum Palace Tag-Team battle where Max uses Sunny Day to activate his Chlorophyll ability which increases Seedot's Speed.
  • Glass Cannon: Max's Abra and his Evolutionary Line are known to have very high Special Attack and Speed stats, letting them deal massive damage. Yet they are extremely frail in their defense, especially towards physical attacks.
  • Good with Numbers: Max never misses the chance to make calculations on possibilities.
  • Green Thumb: His Nuzleaf/Shiftry is a Grass-Type.
  • Humongous Mecha: Owns a Golurk, which is meant as a reference to the giant robot Gamer battles with.

  • Motor Mouth: Whenever he goes on his techno talk or calculations, to the point someone has to interrupt him to stop.
  • Odd Friendship: He's a strategist who relies on deductive reasoning and logic who is close friends with Kim, the local competitive, hard-hitting jock. They work so well that their brain-brawn tactics let them nearly win the Parfum Tag-Team battle.
  • Poisonous Person: His Zubat/Golbat/Crobat is part Poison-Type.
  • Psychic Powers: His Abra/Kadabra is a Psychic-Type.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Max is the analytical and strategic Blue Oni to Kim's brash and straight-forward Red Oni.
  • Starter Mon: His first Pokémon is Abra as to highlight his intellect.
  • The Strategist: Going by his brain tactics, Max's Pokémon aren't all powerful, so he makes up for it by being a very good strategist, making very good use of basic techniques and common sense. This however, is his Achilles' Heel— he thinks things through so logically and by-the-book that unexpected results and outside-the-box strategies catch him by surprise, throwing his strategies off that lead to his defeat. He and Kim nearly lost it when Alya and Nino pulled off their water and electric combo move and later, he was taken back when luck was a factor that helped Marinette and Adrien win.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Max wears Nerd Glasses and was the top in Marinette's class in the theoretical portion of the exams.
  • Teleport Spam: Abra, which came in handy in Chapter 11 when Abra saved both him and Kim's Machop from Alya's Elekid's and Nino's Lotad's combo attack during the first round in the Tag-Team battle.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Max's team isn't a powerhouse compared to Kim's, but he does make good use of his Pokémon's versatility and takes advantage of his environment and Type-weaknesses.

  • Irony: Mylène is a Lovable Coward and owns a Shuppet/Banette.

It is deconstructed as she and Ivan were separated from the others and made them more suceptile to Team Akuma's attack and she was used as a hostage by their attackers, resulting in Ivan being kidnapped in return for her safety. However, she is still a competent trainer and she and her Shuppet were able to distract a brainwashed Ivan and his Rhyhorn long enough for the Defenders of Kalos to save him.
  • Poisonous Person: To compliment her boyfriend's male Nidoran, her female Nidoran is a pure Poison-Type too.

  • Friendly Rival: She and Juleka are best friends and Pokémon Performer rivals who both cheer and push the other to do their best.
  • Genki Girl: Rose is a bubbly, energetic and cheerful girl that she manages to outdo Marinette and gets excited in watching a Pokémon battle. Though she seems more level-headed during Showcases compared to battles. She even owns a Bellossom to reflect her cheerful nature.

Despite her shy personality and her tendency to mumble her words, she follows Rose and tries her hand in Pokémon Showcases as well, becoming her friendly rival in the process. Because she is not used to having a lot of attention on herself, Juleka loses her first Showcase, leaving her much think about what it means for her to be Kalos Queen in the first place.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Juleka's quiet and introverted demeanor, along with her appearance and preference for dark clothes and Pokémon may have others peg her as one. She's a subversion, as she's actually a shy and awkward (albeit kind) girl. Although her Showcases performances seem to play it straight in order to enhance the enchanting atmosphere of her performance.
  • Barrier Warrior: Her Gothita/Gothorita knows Reflect while Mime Jr. has the Barrier Move.

Recurring Rivals

     Lila Rossi 
A sly and cunning Trainer from Alto Mare in the Johto region. Lila has a couple of Pokémon League Challenge experiences under her belt and intends to make a name for herself in the Kalos region. She quickly becomes a major rival for Marinette once she takes up an interest in Adrien and even winds up causing a lot of emotional trouble for the both of them and gets turned into a Bond Hybrid in Chapter 48 after being humiliated by Lady Ledian. Lila's deceptive nature has shown to be dangerous in battle; tricking her opponents through her Pokémons' natural abilities and skills in the art of deception, leaving her foes confuse and vulnerable when she strikes.
  • Alpha Bitch: While she didn't attend Lumiose Academy with Marinette and the others, she acts like a passive-aggressive example. She presents herself as a charming, skilled and friendly foreign Trainer from Alto Mare who's competing in the Kalos League. Behind her façade is a cunning, manipulative and vindictive girl who'd lie to anyone about her social status and battle record regardless if her lies end up hurting others and will manipulate any situation to her benefit. Not to mention to makes it clear to Marinette that she intends to steal Adrien from her.
  • Always Someone Better: When first introduced, Lila is set up to be a more formidable rival for Marinette than Chloé, being more skillful and experienced than her as she traveled around longer and competed in a couple of League Conferences up to the present day. This is eventually subverted later on. In Chapter 50 it's revealed that at the Johto Silver Conference, she only made the Top 128. After that, she managed to reach the Top 64 of the Hoenn Ever Grande Conference.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: At first she appears to be a subversion, being polite and friendly to new trainers she meets. Key word is appears. In truth, her humble and polite demeanor are simply false modesty that allows her to flaunt her skills and 'accomplishments' all the while she's condescending to those whom she believes are beneath her. Zig-zagged with while she is indeed a skilled Pokémon trainer and has plenty of experience than the two protagonists combined, she's not as strong as she makes other believes to be.
  • Attention Whore: Loves being in the spotlight and wants to be revered as a beloved celebrity. She lies about her social status and exaggerates her accomplishments to impress others, especially Adrien.
  • Birds of a Feather: She shares a lot of similarities with her Mawile; both being deceptive and malicious while appearing cute and harmless to hide their true nature.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: When she first appeared before Adrien and the others, she presented herself as a kind, humble and skilled Pokémon Trainer, though Marinette later finds out the nice girl routine is all an act to get Adrien for herself. In actuality, Lila lies through her teeth, not caring who gets hurt in the process. Her Mawile perfectly mirrors that aspect; as she uses her cute appearance to hide her vicious nature and personality when she lures in her prey.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Lila is jealous in general over anyone who gets more attention than her, but her jealousy is obvious regarding Adrien, who she knows has a thing for Lady Ledian and is close friends with Marinette, her rival.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Lila uses her Pokémon's special abilities and movesets to gain an advantage over her opponents, which even extends to lying which Pokémon she's actually using. Her Mawile and Zoroark reflects this, as they both have Dark-Type attacks and are willing to fight dirty. The former is even known to us their cute appearance to lure in potential victims.
  • Confusion Fu: Her battle style involves using tricks and deception through her Pokémon's Abilities and movesets to confuse her opponents. One of her strategies is having her Zoroark use her Illusion ability to pose as her Ninetales to throw people off.
  • Consummate Liar: The situation is ambiguous with Lila, who carefully uses vague wording in regards to her accomplishments as a Pokémon Trainer. Averted in the sense that her accomplishments and skills have been validated to an extent, but she tends to make herself sound bigger than she might be when it comes to knowing reputable individuals.
  • Cunning Like a Fox: She owns a Ninetales and Zoroark. She's deceptive in both battles and outside of battles.
  • Dirty Coward: When beaten by Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir, Lila/Zoromba attempted to escape without her Zoroark, who was left unconscious.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Her Mawile is part Steel-Type.
  • Fantastic Foxes: Lila's team, according to Word of God (via the author's bio), is based around this. She particularly owns a Ninetales and a Zoroark.
  • Fragile Speedster: Lila's Ninetales and Zoroark have excellent speed and the latter has excellent special attack and physical attack. However, Ninetales has less than impressive Offensive stats and average Defense and Zoroark has low defense and special defense which shown in Chapter 39 and 48.
  • Glamour Failure: Lila's careful in trying to avert this. The reason why her Zoroark takes the guise of her Ninetales is because, with the exception of Night Daze, her Zoroark shares similar movesets that her Ninetales can learn. Keyword is trying. The illusion can start to break if Zoroark gets hit, if her 'Ninetales' is myseriously immune to Psychic-Type attacks for some reason, or if 'Ninetales' used Night Daze.
  • Hate Sink: Lila has already been given this treatment in the main series by the fandom due to her interference with the infamous Love Square and being a dishonest, selfish and manipulative person overall, but there's no doubt she's gone even lower in many readers' eyes due to the audacity she had in throwing herself at Adrien and stealing his Sacred First Kiss while Marinette watched in her hiding place.
  • Jerkass: Lila is rather downplayed as she isn't outwardly malicious, but the author confirmed that her and Marinette’s rivalry was bound to match the intensity of Ash and Paul’s rivalry. Plays it straight in later appearances, particularly in Chapter 47 and 48 where she reveals her true nature as a deceitful and spiteful girl. Her Mawile is a prominent example among her Pokémon team, as she took delight in chomping down Marinette's Gardevoir between her horn jaw.
  • Light Is Not Good: Ninetales is known for it's reputation as a vindictive Mon and she represents Lila's cunning nature and Fox motif.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Lila's Pokémon team are associated with deception, manipulation and lies: Her Ninetales is known for her species' high intelligence and vengeful nature, her Zoroark's specialty are illusions, her Ditto has the ablity to shapeshift into any Pokémon and possibly humans, her Mismagius is known to place people under illusions and hallucinations and finally, her Mawile is called the Deceiver Pokémon, who are known to use their cute and harmless appearance to lure their prey.
  • Master of Illusion: Aside from fox archetypes according to Word of God (via the author's bio), Lila's team also consists of Pokémon associated with illusions and deception, such as her Ditto and Zoroark. Even when transformed into a Bond Hybrid, Lila specializes in powerful illusions due to being bonded with her Zoroark.
  • Mind Manipulation: Her Ninetales and Mismagius know Confuse Ray, which fits into her deceptive play style.
  • Never My Fault: Blames Lady Ledian for ruining her chances with Adrien and humiliating her, even when it wouldn't happened at all had she not lied about knowing Lady Ledian nor kissing Adrien without his consent.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Compared to previous Bond Hybrids, who simply engaged in battle against Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir, Lila, as Zorombra, was willing to and has openly endangered innocent lives just to spite Lady Ledian by having her Zoroark's illusions terrorize civilians visiting the Poké Ball Factory and running away instead of staying and fighting against two heroes at once.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: She doesn't leave any space between her and Adrien when flirting with him.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: Her Mawile is part Fairy-Type and leans more on folkloric aspects of fairies.
  • Playing with Fire: Her Ninetales is a Fire-Type.
  • Psychic Powers: Her Ninetales knows Psyshock and her Zoroark knows the move Calm Mind.
  • The Rival: She's said to serve as a more competent rival to Marinette especially since she defeated Marinette in their first uninterrupted battle.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: As much as she brags about her experience in competing in several past Leagues, Lila didn't make it has a top contender and is using the upcoming Kalos League to overwrite her lackluster League record.
  • Smug Snake: Despite being a skilled trainer said to be a greater adversary for Marinette combined with her experience, Lila arguably qualifies as this. She doesn't stop to flaunt her accomplishments, enjoys pushing Chloé or Marinette's buttons for her own amusement due to her experience as a Trainer. She even goes as far as to steal Adrien's Sacred First Kiss forcibly because of her own entitlement. When she's put in a lower or uncomfortable position such as Adrien's Marowak nearly hitting her in retaliation for violating Adrien's personal space, Lady Ledian exposing her lies in front of Adrien, or falling victim as Team Akuma's latest Bond Hybrid, Lila loses her smug and sly demeanor. Chapter 50 firmly pushes her as this when Alya reveals her discovery on Lila's past League Challenge records show that she isn't an impressive trainer as she makes herself out to be.
  • Status Buff: Her Ninetales can jack up her normally average Sp. Attack with Nasty Plot while her Zoroark uses Calm Mind to boost both her Sp. Attack and Sp. Defense.
  • Super Mode: Her Mawile is capable of Mega Evolving.
  • Your Mind Makes It Real: The new powers gained by Lila/Zorombra and Zoroark as part of their becoming the latest Bond Hybrid in Chapter 48. The illusions her Zoroark cast are so powerful that even if the victim knows they're not real, their brains are convinced they're being attacked, inflicting real pain as they perceive. Her illusions also play upon the afflicted's emotions, such as making Lady Ledian think that Liepard Noir was betraying her for Zorombra or that Adrien was about to be thrown into a dangerous machine in the Poké Ball Factory.

     Kagami Tsurugi 
A Trainer from a prestigious family of battlers from Sinnoh with her mother, Tomoe Tsurugi as a Sinnoh Elite Four member and her grandfather a retired Champion of Kanto/Johto. Seeks to challenge Trainers with strong reputations and has set her sights on Adrien due to his status as Champion Agreste's son.

Swift and powerful like the art of fencing, Kagami proves to be a formidable Trainer to be reckon with.
  • Accidental Misnaming: Is on the receiving end by Wayhem in Chapter 54, having been called Kasumi, Kamui, Kurome, Kaname, and such. She finally puts her foot down on the issue on Chapter 58 when Wayhem gets her name wrong a third time by calling her "Kame". note

  • An Ice Person: She owns a Froslass, associating with her 'Ice Queen' personality.
  • Blades Below The Shoulder: Kagami and her family have Pokémon that are associated with the blade, as they themselves pride themselves as sword masters. Kagami's Empoleon knows Steel Wing that can let her wings function like swords, her Bisharp has retractable blades on her wrists while her Kabutops wields dual scythes as her hands.
  • Blood Knight: Kagami is made to be a downplayed, not-so-violent example as she seeks out Pokémon Trainers with reputations and challenge them to battles. So far, Adrien is at the top of her list.
  • Brutal Honesty: She's straight-forward and blunt, to the point that what she says may be well-intentioned, can come off as harsh to others at the same time.
  • Challenge Seeker: Makes it a point to challenge reputable Trainers to see their skills for herself and enforce her family's own powerful reputation.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Her Steelix is part Ground-type and her Kabutops is part Rock-type.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Kagami's official debut in Chapter 46 has her immediately taking up Luka's challenge at the end of the Laverre City Fashion Show, even leaping onto the stage to show her determination and eagerness at the challenge. After winning the battle, she asks the whereabouts of Adrien yet unlike the others, is one of the few challengers to refer Adrien by name instead of 'Champion Agreste's son'. This shows both her straight-forward and no-nonsense attitude, but also her honorable and respectful side.

  • Extra-ore-dinary: Owns a Bisharp, an Empoleon, and a Steelix.

  • Not So Above It All: Even with her serious personality, Kagami is still a child at heart, having bantered with Wayhem in the majority of Chapter 54.
  • Not So Stoic: Kagami always maintains her composure, but she has shown to lose her cool. In Chapter 54, although she remained indifferent to Wayhem's tendency to misname her, it soon became obvious that she was slowly getting annoyed by it. This cumulates in her being pissed off after Wayhem failed to identify Adrien's Marowak's gender.
  • The Rival: Her initial role to be one for Adrien. Becomes his and Wayhem's rival in Chapter 54.
  • Starter Mon: Kagami owns an Empoleon, the fully evolved form of Piplup, the Water-Type Sinnoh Starter Mon.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Kagami's aloof and stoic attitude makes her appear as a serious trainer and with her straightforward nature, can come off as hostile. She admits to herself she isn't a people-person, yet she is shown to be friendly and polite beneath her icy and aloof exterior. Notably that she compliments Wayhem for his ability as a trainer from how well he raised his Pokémon despite their initially rough start in the Chapter 54. Her Froslass represents her aloof personality.
  • The Stoic: Compared to the colorful cast of lively characters in the story, Kagami is pretty quiet and reserved.
  • Tsurime Eyes: Her defining characteristic, aside from her dark hair, is her sharp brown eyes.

She had a few bouts of such during her battle in Chapter 56. And at the end of the battle, she starts to believe that friendship is the thing that is born "when one life meets another".
  • When She Smiles: Adrien thinks to himself when Kagami smiles a real smile near the end of Chapter 54 that she looks cute with it and hopes she would smile more often.
  • Yuki Onna: Owns a Froslass.

A former graduate from Lumiose Trainer Academy, being a few years older than Marinette and her class. Mireille is the current Kalos Queen, and thus, the ultimate obstacle for any Pokémon Performer aiming for the title.

     Wayhem 
A Trainer who claims to be Adrien's biggest fan, to the point that he dresses like him. His obsession towards Champion Agreste's son is near-Marinette levels. He hopes to become a strong and cool Trainer like Adrien and wants to become his apprentice. He was also part of the audience that watched Adrien's exhibition match against Gabriel, spurring him to seek out Adrien, eventually fiding him at the end of Chapter 53.

  • Accidental Misnaming: Subjected Kagami to this, likely because he doesn't care about anyone who isn't Adrien Agreste. Kagami finally puts her foot down and even threatens him to stop getting her name wrong in Chapter 58 when he mistakenly calls her "Kame". note 
  • Afro Asskicker: Revealed on the author's profile to own a Bouffalant as a reference to Party Crasher. He even knows Head Charge, which is called Afro Break in Japanese.
  • Character Tics: Frequently pumps his arms to show excitement.
  • Curbstomp Battle: As valiantly as he fought against Adrien during their double battle, he was unable to knock out any of Adrien's Pokémon despite tiring them out before losing the match.
  • The Ditz: Enthusiastic and impatient, but not too bright as he keeps getting Kagami's name wrong.
  • Establishing Character Moment: His first official line at the end of Chapter 53, continuing off into Chapter 54 where his identity is revealed, is to loudly declare he found Adrien. Then from Adrien's perspective, Adrien was unnerved by the boisterous voice and the fact that his biggest fan was wearing the same clothes he was wearing.
  • Failed a Spot Check: During his double battle against Adrien, he was hoping that his Delcatty's Cute Charm Ability would affect Adrien's Marowak. Cute Charm only affects those Pokémon who are the opposite gender of the user, while Pokémon of the same gender are unaffected. It doesn't take a genius to figure out why Delcatty's Cute Charm didn't work on Marowak, something that Kagami points out.
  • Funny Afro: Owns a Bouffalant, meant to reference his akumatized form, Party Crasher.
  • Gag Nose: Owns a Nosepass, which can evolve into Probopass, another reference to Party Crasher.

  • Green Thumb: His Chesnaught is part Grass-type.

  • Non-Elemental: Owns a Delcatty, likely to match Adrien's cat motif.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Probably. Even Adrien wonders if that's his real name.
  • The Rival: He is another personal rival for Adrien outside of Kagami and his friends and classmates.
  • Smelly Skunk: Owns a Skuntank, which weaponizes smells. According to the author's page, this is meant to reference how Wayhem fended off Gorizilla in the main show.
  • Starter Mon: He owns a Chesnaught, the final evolution of Chespin.
  • Third-Person Person: Would occassionaly say his full name and title for the theatrics.

Team Akuma

     As a whole 
The villainous team of the story. Dressed in gaudy and questionably-designed purple suits, Team Akuma is a crime syndicate who terrorizes Kalos in their wake. Fanatically loyal to their leader, they share his belief on a perfect and beautiful world and will do anything to make that vision a reality— by any means necessary.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Team Akuma abducts Trainers under their leader’s command, to which he uses his Malamar’s Hypnosis to ensure total cooperation before subjecting them to Mega Evolution energy, which from Pokémon XY&Z was shown to subjugate even a Zygarde. Not even the Grunts are immune to this as Poison Moth has hinted that his lackeys have been also subjected to brainwashing.
  • Combat Pragmatist: They are not above fighting dirty to get their way, whether it's holding hostages, stealing or ambushing defenseless Trainers or Pokémon to achieve their goals.
  • Dissonant Serenity: During the creation of the Bond Hybrid, the Team Akuma grunts are described to be observing this disturbing process with morbid fascination while the victims and their Pokémon are screaming in pain.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • When Adrien and Alya were ambushed by Team Akuma and Adrien saving Alya from a surprise attack by the grunt's Gulpin, in the process they destroyed the Jaws fossil Alya was carrying. The grunts callously disregard the damage as they claim they could get more from Glittering Cave.
    • How they kidnapped Ivan? By having Venomoth using Psychic on Mylène and using her as a hostage.
    • In Chapter 51, they forcibly Mega Evolve a wild Abomasnow by threatening her offspring.
  • Lack of Empathy: They're overzealous towards their leader's ideals and goals, all the while disregarding the destruction and suffering they bring upon others whether human or Pokémon.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Their new strategy in Chapter 51 managed to separate Liepard Noir from Gallade and Lady Ledian. They used a device to siphon his Key Stone energies away, including Yveltal's power, and would've succeeded if Delphox Rouge didn't intervene.
  • Nebulous Evil Organization: The resident criminal organization for this story.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Despite their hammy and cheesy villain lines and getting mocked for their questionable fashion senses, Team Akuma are considered and ouright called as a terrorist organization who are willing to kidnap and brainwash new trainers, engage in anarchy activities and steal to get their way.
  • Saying Too Much: The Grunts have a tendency to blab a lot of important information to the heroes that they really should keep to themselves that even some of their more rational members wish they kept their big mouths shut. Poison Moth knows about this and relied on their big mouths to reveal the false information on the device in order to fool the heroes.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Poison Moth, to the point of being overzealous. This is deconstructed when they organized an all-out assault on Lumiose City to draw out Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir without Poison Moth's permission, leading to a huge loss of manpower.
  • Would Hurt a Child: The members had no qualms in antagonizing young and teenaged Trainers if they got in their way.
    • They kidnapped Ivan to test their technology and experiments in turning a Trainer and Pokémon into a Bond Hyrbid.
    • In Chapter 51, they forced a wild Abomasnow to cooperate with them by threatening her children and two Grunts restrained Liepard Noir and had a pair of their Sneasel beat him up.

     Poison Moth 
Team Akuma's boss and the main antagonist of the story. A masked man whose motives remain a mystery, but desires to wipe out the world's imperfection, which is why he seeks out the Legendary Pokémon, Xerneas and Yveltal. To this end, he brainwashes civilians and their Pokémon and fuse them together; creating unnatural Bond Hybrids in hopes of drawing out the entities of life and death. After the Defender of Kalos' first appearance, he begins targeting Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir due to their Key Stones connected to the Olympus Mons. A man who will gain the power he seeks by any means necessary— even if it means threatening the balance of Kalos. His true identity is the current Kalos Champion, Gabriel Agreste.
  • Adaptational Badass: Poison Moth is not just a single man brainwashing innocents to do his bidding, but is also the leader of a criminal organization with resources and mooks at his disposal.
  • Archnemesis Dad: The direction regarding who Poison Moth is taken.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: He reveals that the device used on Liepard Noir's Key Stone analyzed its energy frequencies instead of draining it, including that of Yveltal's energy frequency, at the end of Chapter 52. However, this was at the cost of losing more agents to the authorities once Lady Ledian, Liepard Noir, and Delphox Rouge defeated them.
  • Batman Gambit: At the end of Chapter 52, he reveals that he lied to his minions about the device's function of draining Key Stone's energies. The true purpose was to analyze the data frequency of the Key Stones and easily locate a matching frequency of said Key Stone. In this case, the device was used on Liepard Noir's Key Stone in order to easily locate and identify the Pokémon connected to it, including its whereabouts; Yveltal.
  • Big Bad: He is the leader of the antagonistic force in the story, after all.
  • Classy Cane: He's described to wielding a cane which his uses to flourish in the dramatics.
  • The Dreaded: Team Akuma Grunts fear in disappointing him that when first appeared before Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir through a hologram, they were quaking in fear.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Poison Moth has his moments when presented an opportunity to brainwash a potential soldier for Team Akuma's services, Evil Laugh included.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He kept his minions in the dark on the true function of the device to ensure the heroes won't know about it.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Poison Moth is content in hiding in the shadows while his minions and Bond Hybrids carry out his dirty work, along with the assistance of his Venomoth and Malamar. Though given his true identity, he either can put up a fight if he must or rather not under the risk of his identity being exposed.
  • Orcus on His Throne: He spends most of his time in his lair, overseeing his minion's activities through the eyes of his Venomoth.
  • Pungeon Master: He occasionally indulges in Pokémon puns, admitting it's a guilty pleasure for him. Seems like Adrien didn't fall far from the tree.
  • Transformation Trinket: From what is known about him, he wears his Key Stone in a brooch shaped as a Pokémon with large round wings, which could be either Venomoth or Vivillon.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Similar to main series, Poison Moth is the leader of the terrorist group Team Akuma and his true identity, is Gabriel Agreste; known to the public as the Kalos Champion and a famous fashion designer.
  • Weapon of Choice: Venomoth and Malamar. The former is used as his eyes and ears throughout Kalos and is even the inspiration design for his mask and Team Akuma's uniform. The latter is used to force latest Bond Hybrid candidates into submission through powerful hypnosis.

  • Green Thumb: Tom's Sceptile.
  • Like Parent, Like Child: Apparently, having the idea to go defend others by dressing up as a Pokémon inspired superhero is something both Marinette and her father have in common.

  • Mythology Gag: The beginning scene of Chapter 57 features her and the Dedenne her mother caught for her playing around with Dedenne stumbling upon a Zygarde Cell hidden in the bushes. This references her Expy's role from the anime with the narration even indicating that "in another universe" she would play a very role in saving the world.

  • Immortality Inducer: He and Wayzz were on the accidentally receiving end by pushing the king away from the ultimate weapon by the time it resurrected his Floette, thus becoming immortal in his place alongside Floette. However, Fu did state that he has no idea how much longer his lifespan has left.

Historical Kalosian Figures

The most well-known historical event in the Kalos region is the war that took place three-thousand years ago. The main characters are given more depth in Chapter 57 in Fu's Flashback.

     The Three-Thousand Year Old King 
Exactly What It Says on the Tin. The king that ruled over the Kalos region over three-thousand years ago from the present day. Was said to be a brilliant man that loved his people, but loved his beloved Pokémon more. His Pokémon's death drove him to create the ultimate weapon that resurrected her and ended the war by decimating both sides.
  • Adaptational Backstory Change: The difference between AZ's story and his is that the king is not made immortal due to Fu and Wayzz's interference, thus eventually aging and dying as an exiled vagabond.
  • Cain and Abel: Eventually becomes the Cain to his younger brother's Abel when he gives into despair and madness.
  • Despair Event Horizon: The death of his Floette is what sets him down a dark path, making him obsessed with bringing her back to life and taking revenge against the cruel world that took her away from him.
  • Emperor Scientist: He was responsible for many of the technological advancements in his kingdom and if it were not for his position, would have poured his efforts into developing more advancements to help in the war. Not to mention, is capable of developing a doomsday device/immortality machine all on his own in secret.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He was noted to have a brilliant mind, having contributed to the technological advancements throughout Kalos prior to ascending to the throne. Had he not been born to the royal family, he would've had a promising future as an engineer. Unfortunately, he uses his genius to create the ultimate weapon.
  • Gentle Giant: He was described to be a large and tall man due to being based off of AZ.
  • The Good King: Was a great king prior to his fall into madness.
  • Large and in Charge: He was the king of Kalos during the war and towered almost anyone he met. Which was why he was easily able to knock away the Stripling and his Turtwig with just his arm.
  • Love Makes You Evil: His beloved Floette became another casualty in the war, driving him mad with grief and hatred towards the world. From then on, he sought to revive his beloved Floette no matter the costs... along with taking vengeance upon the many involved in the war including his own.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: He goes into exile after realizing the many lives he killed through the ultimate weapon, from sacrificing many Pokémon to resurrect his Floette to ending the war to satiate his vengeance.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: The king experienced the horrors of war as it continued to increase in violence and destruction as death tolls increased by each day, the guilt of his failure in protecting his people weighing on him as it happens. This culminates in the death of his Floette when the war escalated, driving him to make a giant superweapon in rage and grief.

     The King's Beloved Pokémon 
A beautiful Floette that loved her king. Desired peace and wanted the fighting to stop, she was willing to get in the war to do so, resulting in her death.

  • Morality Pet: To her king. Naturally, her death is what finally made the king snapped.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: It was Floette's death during the war that unintentionally set in motion the creation of the ultimate weapon by the king's hands.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Much like in AZ's story, she becomes disgusted towards her king upon finding out that many Pokémon lives were sacrificed to bring her back to life, making her leave him. Unlike AZ's story, though, they never seemed to have made up as the king eventually dies of old age.

     The King's Brother 
The ruling king's younger brother, next in line to inherit the Kalos crown, he often had his older brother's best interests on mind.

  • Cain and Abel: Becomes the Abel to the king's Cain when the latter goes off the deep end and creates the ultimate weapon.

     The Stripling 
A mysterious young man that approached the king one day, offering his power and services to stop the war. His developing friendship with the king eventually places him as a trusted advisor. That man was a young Fu Wang.
  • ...And That Little Girl Was Me: Or boy. He's actually a young Fu back in the war while Fu in the present day is narrating the story to Marinette.
  • The Leader: He gathered and led talented people that were capable of invoking the Bond Phenomenon with their Pokémon partners.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Despite all the wisdom he acquired in his early years, he and his Turtwig charged in on the king, shoving him, as the controller, away from the ultimate weapon in an attempt to disarm it. To be fair, little could've been done in the remaining time they had. The ultimate weapon still followed through with its directive in resurrecting Floette. Exposure during this phase granted the both of them immortality.
  • Starter Mon: He is accompanied by a Turtwig, which is his long-time partner, Wayzz.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: The Stripling and his group of Bond Phenomenon specialists sparked hope in Floette that inspired her to finally join the battlefield in order to stop the war, leading to her death.

  • Adaptational Nice Guy: In the main show, he stalks Jagged Stone for photos, to the point he even stalks the rock star's mother. In this story, he hasn't done anything that would violate the Elite Four's personal space (so far), and has properly passed the Gym Leader's qualification exams.

     Roger Raincomprix 
Sabrina's father, head lieutenant of the Kalos police force, and Coumarine Gym Leader.

  • Green Thumb: Specializes in Grass-type Pokémon.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In the final round against Marinette, his Gogoat had Tikki bound by Grass Knot and was about to use Leech Seed.

     Luka Couffaine 
Juleka's older brother who assumes the position of the Laverre City Gym Leader once the previous Gym Leader, the fictionalized characterization of Laura Marano, steps down to travel the world. He inadvertently gives Marinette heart trouble, causing her to briefly be attracted to him due to his handsome looks and kind personality.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Cares very much for Juleka and wants her to open up to others more.
  • Chick Magnet: Described to be charming and handsome, it also helps that he's involved in the Laverre fashion shows to attract a lot of female attention. A digital image of him was enough to briefly cause Marinette heart trouble.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: As to uphold the Laverre Gym's theme type, he uses Fairy-type Pokémon like Clefable, Slurpuff, and Azumarill.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Is more than willing to be a part of hosting the Laverre fashion show the Gym holds every season, which seems to be predominately run by women. That said, he's not a pushover in battles.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: The decided dynamic between him and Juleka. Though they have similar tastes in fashion, Juleka is a known Shrinking Violet who likes and owns Ghost-type Pokémon while Luka is more outgoing and charming and specializes with Fairy-types, which fits as his new role as the Laverre City Gym Leader. However, Luka does focus on the more realistic and darker aspects of Fairy-types, constantly referring to their "hidden fangs" during Marinette's Gym battle against him in Chapter 46.

     Marianne Lenoir 
An elderly woman born with psychic powers, the most prominent being the ability to look into the future, Marianne has held the title of Gym Leader of Anistar City for a seeming long time. She has aided the Kalos region in the past with her clairvoyance, protecting the people from imminent disasters when the stars allow her to foresee them. She also has a special relationship with Fu, guiding Marinette to find him in Terminus Cave after she defeats her in a Gym battle in Chapter 56.
  • Adaptational Badass: She's a powerful Psychic-user in this story.
  • Animal Motifs: Her cloak has Celebi body outlines.
  • Anti-Magic: Xatu's Magic Bounce, which caught Marinette off guard when she had Leavanny attempt to restrain her with String Shot, only to discover the move reflected back on Leavanny. Marinette later uses this to her advantage to get Marianne to lower her guard, by having Leavanny use String Shot again and getting Togekiss to take the hit to be slowed down. This is to make her the fastest Pokémon while Trick Room is active.
  • Badass Teacher: Marianne has Simon as her leading apprentice and several Psychics studying under her tutelage in the Anistar Gym to hone their abilities and deepen their bonds with their Pokémon. As Marinette experienced in her Gym battle, Marianne is a force to be reckoned with in both her psychic abilities and experience as a Gym Leader.
  • Blow You Away: Owns a Xatu, a dual Psychic/Flying-type.
  • Combat Clairvoyance: Both her Xatu and Starmie use Future Sight, combining their powers to set up a devastating and incoming attack that is assure to strike.
  • Cool Old Lady: She is kind and grandmotherly to Marinette and her friends. Even her students greatly admire her.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Xatu's and Starmie's movesets and Abilities complement each other well for nearly every situation, particularly Xatu's Trick Room and Starmie's Analytical.
  • Discard and Draw: A combination of Xatu's Trick Room and Starmie's Analytical ability decreases Starmie's speed in exchange for a tremendous power boost to its Attack stats.
  • Dual Boss: Marianne uses her Xatu and Starmie against Marinette, who in turn chose Leavanny and Togekiss.
  • The Fatalist: Played with. Part of her theme during her battle against Marinette is how everything has a set path to their inevitable outcomes, ironically referencing in "Backwarder" her goal to change the past due to a misunderstanding between her and Fu. She even questions Marinette what her belief in fate is, asking if her victory was a result of her determination or that it was inevitable.
  • Making a Splash: Her Starmie, which is part-Water-type.
  • Mythology Gag: The phases of Marianne's Gym battle have Valerie's and Olympia's battles from the anime combined: the former using Trick Room as the final phase while the latter uses dual Future Sight.
  • Never Mess with Granny: She can be assumed to be as old as Fu and is a tough Gym Leader.
  • Psychic Powers: Has clairvoyance, a degree of levitation, and specializes in Psychic-types.
  • Seer: What Marianne is in this story and fittingly owns a Xatu.
  • Secret Keeper: She knows Fu and the importance of his role. She also knows the true identities of Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir due to her clairvoyance.
  • Stealth Mentor: Downplayed. Throughout Marinette's Gym battle, Marianne enforces the concepts of fate by berating Marinette's lack of preparedness whenever Marianne had the upper hand and saying how her loss was inevitable, but it only spurred Marinette to push forward despite the overwhelming odds.
  • Support Party Member: Xatu's only offensive moves are Psychic and Future Sight. Her other moves are Telekinesis and Trick Room.
  • What Could Have Been: Initially before Marianne's debut in the main show, the role of Anistar Gym Leader was given to Simon Grimault. Instead, he is Marianne's top apprentice, designated to succeed her once she decides to retire.

Kalos Elite Four and Champion

     Gabriel Agreste 
Adrien's father, the current reigning Kalos Champion, and successful Kalos fashion designer. Strict, disciplined and aloof, Gabriel is the ultimate challenge for any contenders of the Kalos League. He is also well-known to be an elusive celebrity and is a perfectionist; in his fashion designs, Pokémons, his son and his legacy, and most of all, his ideal of beauty. He is also Poison Moth, Team Akuma Leader.
  • Abusive Parents: Just like in the show, while he's not physically abusive, Gabriel can be emotionally abusive when grooming Adrien to become his successor. Aside from micromanaging his son's life in order to succeed him as Kalos Champion, he posed a challenge to Trainers to be merciless to his son if they aspire to compete in the Kalos League. Basically sending a horde of trainers to challenge his son in order to test his son's abilities. Moreover Nino reveals in Chapter 41 the details of Adrien's training when he was around Manon's age. Specifically, Gabriel had his assistant Nathalie oversee Adrien's battle training under his supervision while ordering her to not hold back, even if he was a child back then.
  • The Ace: The Kalos region's strongest Trainer and top fashion designer.
  • Brutal Honesty: In Chapter 41, Gabriel doesn't even attempt to hide the fact that he's less than impressed of Adrien's performance during his one-sided exhibition match against his son, pointing out the mistakes he made.
  • Diagonal Cut: Gabriel's Mega Absol's Megahorn inflicts this on Adrien's Mega Gallade during their exhibition match, which is described to take the form of a Sinister Scythe.
  • Famed In-Story: He's a famous fashion designer and the most powerful trainer in the Kalos region. He's also known to be elusive to the public, only appearing in important events and even then he rarely shows up for those.
  • Fashion Designer: On top of being the reigning Kalos Champion, he is a world-renowned fashion designer and Marinette's idol. He may be the one who designed the uniforms for Team Akuma, ironically as they are described to be gaudy by character.
  • Foreshadowing: His call to Adrien at the end of Chapter 56, letting him know he'll be very busy for the next few days and cannot by bothered no matter what. While this may come off as typical, lampshaded dryly by Adrien himself, it is hinted that the "quarry" Gabriel is after might be Yveltal, as he now has the means to locate the embodiment of death since Chapter 52.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: During his harsh "The Reason You Suck" Speech to his son after their exhibition match, Gabriel noted that Adrien slacked off during his Mega Evolution training, as he could've started after his third Gym Battle in Shalour City since Adrien had all the tools he needed by that point. Including the Dawn Stone he used in Chapter 40. Needless to say, Adrien doesn't deny the accusation that he could've evolved Kirlia earlier.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Given the revelation by the end of Chapter 50, Gabriel probably upset Nino on purpose in Chapter 42 to leave him vulnerable for a Team Akuma ambush.
  • Parental Neglect: Like in the original show, Gabriel is distant from his son Adrien, only checking up on him so often in regards to grooming Adrien to succeed him and become the next Kalos Champion.
  • The Perfectionist: His goal in life is to achieve beauty and perfection, both as the Kalos Champion and a fashion designer. Which was why he was disappointed with Adrien's performance in his exhibition match.
  • Pet the Dog: Near the end of Chapter 52, he calls Adrien, not to check up on his Gym progression as usual, but to check up on his son's safety and wellbeing out of genuine concern. Especially when he feared that Adrien would be caught up in Team Akuma's scheme around the area.
  • Super Mode: Absol's Mega Evolution.
  • Tough Love: Harsh as he is regarding the treatment towards his own son such as encouraging all Trainers working to qualify for the Kalos to battle Adrien on the spot, Gabriel does love Adrien and believes he has his best interest on heart.
  • Transformation Trinket: He keeps his Key Stone hidden within his blazer while his Absol wears his Mega Stone in a tie that matches his Trainer's.
  • Weapon of Choice: His Absol.
  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: Just like in the show, Gabriel is rarely around Adrien's life, always busy with his role as the Kalos Champion and promoting his Pokémon-inspired clothing line overseas. In fact, he left Adrien's strict and harsh training schedule to his assistant Nathalie. In Chapter 41, Adrien attempts to ask his father on if he could visit him more often before their exhibition match begun, only for his request to fall on deaf ears.
  • World's Best Warrior: As the Champion, he's the most skilled trainer in the Kalos region. Unfortunately, he's also the leader of the notorious Team Akuma who threatens Kalos.

     Nathalie Sancoeur 
Fire Specialist of the Elite Four. Also works as Gabriel's assistant in managing his fashion business. She has known and worked with the Agreste family for an unknown amount of time as she was also involved in Adrien's training regimen during his early childhood, mostly doing so in Gabriel's behalf.
  • The Dragon: Is naturally Gabriel's and Poison Moth's second-in-command.
  • Irony: Usually, Trainers that own or specialize in Fire-type Pokémon are Hot-Blooded in personality. Nathalie is anything but. Though according to Adrien, she does change along the lines of "like a switch going off in her head" when she gets into a battle.
  • Morality Pet: Downplayed in Chapter 50. While she did show concern if Poison Moth was planning to turn Adrien into a Bond Hybrid, she still loyally serves him and isn't trying to dissuade him from continuing his horrific acts against Kalos.
  • Playing with Fire: Her specialty.
  • Secret Keeper: Is the only one that knows that Gabriel is Team Akuma's masked leader.

     Jagged Stone 
Dragon Specialist of the Elite Four. A popular rock star who is known to always be accompanied by his Krookodile, Fang.
  • Graceful Loser: He lost to Wang Cheng in their exhibition match in Chapter 45 but enjoyed the battle so much he didn't mind, congratulating Wang on his victory.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: With the exception of Fang, his team is comprised of Dragon-types. However, as a Krookodile, Fang is capable of learning Dragon-type moves.
  • Super Mode: Mega Salamence.
  • Transformation Trinket: His Key Stone is embedded in his guitar's head while Salamence's Mega Stone is worn in a spiked chocker.

     Wang Cheng 
Water Specialist of the Elite Four. Marinette's great-uncle and a renowned chef.
  • Chef of Iron: He's a world-renowned chef and one of the Elite Four.
  • Cool Uncle: He's Marinette's great-uncle and a member of the Elite Four who gives his grand niece some words of wisdom when he helped her train her Feeba into fully mastering Ice Beam.
  • Making a Splash: His preferred Pokémon type.
  • Nice Guy: He's a respectful and congenial man who takes the time to help out his grand niece with training Feebas.
  • Super Mode: Mega Gyarados.
  • Transformation Trinket: His Key Stone is on his chef's hat while his Gyarados's Mega Stone makes the knot of the white headband he wears.
