  • Ordinary High-School Student: In Carol's case more college, but she doesn't really get into the J-Team's antics for the most part and is more or less a normal person, which becomes very obvious when she gets wrapped up in a Cipher raid.
  • Welcomed to the Masquerade: Due to a combination of his screwup as a teenager and guilt for getting her involved in stopping a Cipher raid, Tagg decides to partially reveal the masquerade to her.

Rickard Gavin

Zeal's self-proclaimed rival. He knows Zeal only by the name "Thiznemiz Kwaitfeyk".

Dr. Wayland Kraus

  • Guilt Complex: Blames himself for almost everything bad that happens to the people around him.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: He reveals to Zeal that Iulianus was his son.
  • Wham Line: In his first appearance, he says: "It's my fault for breaking Zachary's mind... it's my fault for standing by as Chase joined Cipher... and it's my fault for not being there when the two of them needed my help the most..." This has yet to be explained, though it's likely his Guilt Complex is to blame.

Silvio Salvai

Traitor's younger brother. Like his sister, Silvio is a Ditto specialist.

  • Catchphrase: "Defying expectations!"
  • Consummate Liar: Has stated that deceit is his specialty.
  • Mysterious Stranger: Almost everything about him is a mystery, but he seems to show allegiance to his "client".

The Mysterious Figure

A mysterious Obscuric that appears to have taken an interest in Tagg.


A trainer from LaRousse City who raises various species for use in competitive battling. She happens to own the parents of Pica, Gilgamesh, and Andre.

  • Deconstruction: Of the in-game practice of breeding hundreds of mons in order to get a perfect one, as Pica, Gilgamesh, and Andre were left with psychological issues, though Trish isn't so much evil as inconsiderate.
  • Obliviously Evil: When directly confronted she has problems grokking that mass breeding so many mons is morally wrong at first, and even states that the reason she put her extra Larvitar out on the route leading to LaRousse City was in hopes of trainers catching them, though she didn't consider the concept of them getting picked off by predators.
  • Parental Neglect: Pica, Gilgamesh, and Andre's parents didn't seem to pay them or their multitude of siblings much mind.
  • Super Breeding Program: Breeds boxes worth of mons in order to get one with the proper genetics. Pica, Gilgamesh, and Andre were all rejects.

Dave Riley

A time traveling emotionally stunted cyborg affiliated with the IDPD, an interdimensional police organization.


    Cubone Tribes 

General Tropes

  • The Clan: Cubone society is built around numerous clans under one greater tribe.
  • Culture Clash: The Kanto and Sinnoh tribes each view the other as savages due to presence or lack of Trial by Bonemerang.
  • Fantastic Racism: They tend to distrust most other species, which is understandable considering their low place in the food chain.
  • Not So Different: Are perhaps the closest to humans in terms of society than any other mons.
  • Zerg Rush: Their main advantage against larger opponents tends to be sheer numbers.

Sinnoh Tribe

This tribe, centered in an area off the main Routes in Sinnoh (south of Oreburgh, north of Pal Park), is the dominant population of Cubone in the Sinnoh region. They notably differ from their Kanto brethern in their widespread use of skull paint, use of the "Trial by Boonemerang" divination system of justice, and slight tendency to accumulate spacetime-warping artifacts.

Marowak Elders

  • Iron Marrow ("Hydreigon Marrow" in AU) (Minute Clan)
  • Bark Stripe (dead in AU?) (??? Clan)
  • Red Skull (??? Clan)
  • Rising Star (evolved and titled "Sunrise" in AU) - not a technical elder yet, due to still being a Cubone, but known for a sense of practical wisdom and presently being groomed for the role.

Minute Clan (Meter Clan in AU)

This clan has the dubious honor of guarding a Legendary relic- Dialga's Toothbrush.

  • Scratch
  • Felt

Moor Clan

Pretty much the only Cubone in the world know to enjoy swimming. Often go fishing in simple canoes.

  • Wishbone
  • Yellow Threedot
  • Reed Snorkel

Moon Clan

Known for late sleep schedules.

Moss Clan

Kanto Tribes

The Kanto tribes, primarily scattered about the northeast quarter of Kanto, have more of a confederate structure (and a significantly larger population) than the Sinnoh tribe, and are seen as the archetypal examples of Cubone society.

Sevii Tribe

The Sevii tribe is located in the isolated Sevault Canyon where they eke out a harsh existence amongst the rocks.

Kalos Tribe

The Kalos tribe is located in the Glittering Cave and has the most divergent culture compared to the other tribes.

    Goldenrod Nidoran Colony 

Spread across the Johto lands around Goldenrod City, a colony with high social organization takes care of the city and carry their peaceful (not in the AU) lives.

The Leaders

A group of females (Nidorina) govern the Colony, assisted by elders, messengers of various allied species, and, in the AU, the heads of the Army.


Mayonaka is a five year old Nidorina who acts as the main leader of the Colony. In the AU, she has picked the head of the Army, Taisho, as her mate, and shows to be very loyal to him even when the other breeders go after younger and probably more capable males.

The Army

The Owsla

A select group of Nidoran tasked with protecting the Colony from danger, they function as a police force. However, with the emergence of dangers that threaten the colony for generations already in the alternate timeline, and the presence of an official army, they have become more like a secret force of pincushion Men in Black in armor.

Andes (Nidorino, Guerriero Rank)
