    The J-Fleet 

The Stormchaser

The J-Team flagship and also their mobile home, the Stormchaser was originally acquired from the J-Team by recovering it from the Illusion Project.

  • BFG: The Stormchaser is armed with large, powerful cannons that allow it to hit far above its weight class.
  • Bigger on the Inside: The Stormchaser is larger on the inside as a result of originally being a Mobius creation, and creates rooms as needed for new J-Teamers.
  • Love Imbues Life: While it was implied to be vaguely alive before, the J-Team's bonds, combined with the help of Uxie and Tagg's Victini, is used to give the Stormchaser true sapience.
  • Primary-Color Champion: The Stormchaser is yellow in color and serves as the living home base of the heroic J-Team.
  • Sapient Ship: The Stormchaser is alive and serves as the J-Team's protector.
  • The Voiceless: The Stormchaser doesn't talk, so Trojan does the talking for her.

    Humans and their Pokémon 

Steven Stone


Ivory Ellen Amarin

The mother of Sarah and Alli Amarin, and a formerly-reigning Sinnoh Champion back in 1987. She was killed by a Toxicroak in February 2007 before coming back as a Delta Golurk six years later.

  • Back from the Dead: Became a Delta Golurk after dying.
  • Badass Family: She, her kids, ex-husband, and Identical Ancestors all form one.
  • Bonus Boss: An odd non-video-game example; she's open to any J-Team members battling her as a sort of Self-Imposed Challenge, but rarely actively seeks them.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Is a Steel-monotype trainer as well as a Steel-type Delta Golurk after coming back to life.
  • Ghost Amnesia: Forgot her entire identity after coming back as a Delta Golett, and believed that was all she was until her memory was sparked by Eskay almost dying the same way she was killed.

  • Maiden Name Debate: Retained the name "Amarin" even after marrying and divorcing Dylan.
  • Mama Bear: Takes out a Toxicroak who almost murders her son.
  • Meaningful Rename: Started going by her middle name after coming back from the dead, because "Ellen" is so much less non-indicative than "Ivy."
  • Missing Mom: Was killed by a Toxicroak before the events of the RP.
  • Older Than They Look: When she died at age 35, she looked about five years younger than she was. Now that she's back from the dead, her Night Shade Illusion of her pre-death self is locked this way.

  • Retired Badass: She passed on her job as Champion to another, but her team remains just as powerful as before.
  • Shout-Out: Became the Toa of Iron on Insula Nui, an island of Delta Golett Line members.

  • Theme Naming: All of her mons are named after famous pirates.


A commanding officer of Team Magma.

Hikari Minami

Sakura's friend that took her in when her parents died, she's a very energetic girl who likes to try new things and loves technology and Pokémon. She's also very likely to do silly things mostly out of boredom and curiosity.

  • Ascended Extra: Initially was going to be a recurring character who would talk to Sakura by phone and give her help from time to time, she ended up getting a much larger role, even getting to be part of PEFE. At this point she's pretty much a PC in all but title.
  • Beauty, Brains, and Brawn: The Brains to Sakura's Beauty and Lyuri's Brawn.
  • Born Lucky: One of her main quirks is just how lucky she can get at times. Managing to find two specific houses in Goldenrod by random guess in one try each is just one of her feats.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Quirky, but is a talented scientist and a tech genius.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: On her weirder days.
  • Cool Big Sis: She acts as one for Sakura, sometimes even for Lyuri, her actual big sister.
  • Freudian Trio: The Superego to Sakura's Ego and Lyuri's Id.

  • Plucky Girl: Trusted assistant is actually a Cipher admin that was using you all along? No problem! Let's compensate for it by giving everyone expensive Christmas gifts!
  • Odd Friendship: Her friendship with Jacob before they became a couple is the most notable one.
  • Official Couple: Her and Jacob finally become a couple during the Hoenn-2 arc.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: Not frequently, but she does pop-up at random sometimes.
  • Ship Tease: With Jacob and Allen, very slight though. The latter probably died upon him being revealed as Alexiel though.
  • Signature Mon: Azure the Azumarill in Kanjoh-2, Blade the Bisharp in Unova-2.
  • The Tease: Some examples include:
    • Trolling the fanbase with Double Entendres when people asked about her relationship with Jacob.
    • Having Jacob enter a room where she shows up in a wedding dress to troll him.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Was used by Allen to infiltrate PEFE and allowed him to escape with her multitype research due to a Wounded Gazelle Gambit he pulled.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has purple hair, and unlike Sakura it's not known if she dyed it or if it's natural.

Hikari's Pokémon

Rei (Female Lopunny)

  • Action Mom: Can handle herself very well in battle.
  • Battle Couple: With Blade.

  • The Tease: She's loyal to her husband, but likes to flirt with every other guy just for fun.

  • Love Hurts: Implied to have suffered with this a lot.
  • Red Herring: Set up as one in Orre in regards to Alexia's true identity.

Allen Avadonia

Rillianne's brother and Hikari's assistant, he's a very polite and serious person who tries to be as helpful as possible.

  • Beleaguered Assistant: To Hikari occasionally.
  • Big Bad Friend: To Hikari and the rest of their social group upon being revealed to be Alexiel.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: He and Rillianne look alike and he can sometimes be mistaken for her twin sister.
  • The Reveal: Turns out to be the Cipher Admin Alexiel, as such, any tropes related to his villainous actions after his identity is revealed go under Alexiel's area.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: His usual attire is a black suit and pants with white gloves.
  • Ship Tease: With Hikari. Even after being revealed as Alexiel he admits that he honestly liked being her assistant.
  • Solomon Divorce: See Rillianne's entry. He stayed with his father.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: The Straight Man to Hikari's Wise Girl.


An imageboard contributor and Sinn refugee living in Celadon, who ended up helping Tagg and Tracer in Kanto during the AU arc, though unlike them he didn't get back his OU memories before the universe split. In the OU, he lives in Sinnoh, and met Tagg once again during the IK Arc.

  • Baleful Polymorph: Becomes a Purrloin during the RtAU arc.

  • Guest-Star Party Member: Assists the J-Team during the war portion of the AU Arc, and again in OU Sinnoh during the IK Arc.

  • La Résistance: First against Scolemis and then against the 7JD in the AU, and against Annoski's Spiritomb army in the OU.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Missed out on half of the dramatic speeches made during the Lanius fight by virtue of being unable to understand Monese like everyone else.
  • Nerves of Steel: Is pretty much a regular guy who gets wrapped up in something greater, but doesn't back down at all.
  • Odd Friendship: With Tagg and Tracer, as they're relatively straight-laced scientists while he's a rather rude and crude imageboard contributor.
  • Official Couple: With Carol (the NPC) in the AU, and some Ship Tease in the OU.
  • Jerk W Ith A Heart Of Gold: He's rather surly but has a good heart.

The Vault Dweller

A vault dweller that joined with Tagg's group during their time in Angela in PMD-B.

  • Captain Ersatz: Of the Vault Dweller from Fallout1.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Becomes friends with Tagg, his mons, and Tracer's mons through their battles in PMD-B Angela.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: For Tagg's group in Angela-B, as the two parties stick together through Angela for shared goals and mutual protection.

  • No Name Given: Much like his game counterpart, he's not given a name past his designation.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Much like his game counterpart, he gets banished from the Vault by the Overseer after getting the water chip and saving Angela from the Unity.


A researcher from Celadon, and a friend of Tagg and Tracer. In the AU he ended up coming up with concoctions to aid the J-Team members fighting Lanius in Kanto.

Salvador Arjuna Trouillefou

A priest of Yveltal currently traveling with the J-Team, and the son of Constantin from another timeline.

  • Agent Peacock: He may be very effeminate in appearance and hobbies and is generally pacifistic in nature, but remember, he was able to hold his own against Tagg and Constantin with ease and reaped Grohl's soul in a rather terrifying manner.
  • All-Loving Hero: On the front, appears to be this.
  • Badass Preacher: Just because he's a priest doesn't mean he can't handle himself in a fight.
  • Bishōnen: A very attractive young man when the vestments are off.
  • Celibate Hero: By virtue of being a priest. Despite the apparent stereotypes of people of Yveltal's cloth being Nun Too Holy.
  • Chick Magnet: Is very popular amongst his sisters workmates in his native timeline due to his looks (a trait he inherits from his father). Though it's not just limited to the girls.
  • Combat Stilettos: More like combat heeled boots.
  • The Coroner/Undertaker: Can play either role, depending on the situation at hand.
  • Creepy Good: Salvador is an unambiguously good guy, but he's also a mortician with a morbid streak.
  • Creepy Mortician: His secondary job is that of a mortician, and despite being a good guy he can be quite creepy while doing it.
  • The Gadfly: While he's certainly on the good side, he still certainly enjoys getting a kick out of yanking people's chains. Namely Lucius.
  • Good Shepherd: Has provided counsel to Tagg at times, as well as other J-Team members.
  • Guyliner: Wears a light amount of makeup, including eyeliner and mascara. Of course, this has the typical amusing tells when he is sad or distressed
  • Eye Scream: His ritual before heading off to claim Grohl's soul on Yveltal's behalf has him pierce his own eyes first.
  • Evil Parents Want Good Kids: It's been inferred that his general affable demeanor and kind attitude was the result of his upbringing, and that Constantin went out of his way to make sure his children didn't turn out like he did.
  • Hindu Mythology: Much like how his father has inspirations from Kali, Salvador has motifs inspired by Shiva.
  • Hot for Preacher:
    • Once the vestments come off, this is the reaction from the fangirls.
    • Yveltal in particular has a strong attraction to him.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: Wears Thigh-High heeled boots, a hip scarf, mascara, and burgundy lipstick and is in general a very supporting and caring young man. Which puts him at odds with his father.
  • Kid from the Future: He's Constantin's son.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Unlike Constantin, he's not a bad guy at all, though he does share his creepier tendencies.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: The long hair adds to his appeal.
  • Macabre Moth Motif: When he comes to reap Grohl's soul for Yveltal, he uses the Gates in order to look like a giant, humanoid moth with bleeding eyeballs.

  • Nightmare Fetishist: He revels in the disturbing and macabre.
  • Power at a Price: Can use the Gates, with their negative effects on the body with prolonged use.
  • Psychic Powers: Much like his father he's a psychic.
  • Psychopomp: Has a lot of elements borrowed from the Shinigami and The Grim Reaper, in particular the Ankou of Breton mythology. Though he himself is a pretty affable guy.
  • Rapunzel Hair:
  • Sexy Priest: Is noted to be a very attractive fellow, but is also a very pious priest.
  • Simple Staff: His main weapon is a staff, but it becomes the base for his main weapon in combat; a scythe construct.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: It's been noted that he looks very much like his father, Constantin. To the point where he can mimic Constantin's voice.
  • White Sheep: Actively tries to not be the person his father was.

Lillianna Cain

The time-traveling alternate-future daughter of Lucius Cain and Sarah Amarin, the former of whom she intended to kill in order to avert her own future.

Ex-Illusion Leader Echo Lingua

The former leader of the Illusion Project.

  • Adoptive Peer Parent: If Tagg is Pef's father figure, then Echo is her mother figure, despite a 9 year age gap.
  • An Ice Person: Her mon form is revealed during the Alola Arc to be an Alolan Vulpix, which are Ice-type.
  • Anti-Villain: Prior to her Heel–Face Turn, while her goals weren't exactly good for the world, she herself isn't evil.
  • Badass Bookworm: Is quite well read when it comes to history and fiction, and is a skilled villainess prior to her Face–Heel Turn.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: First appears as a cloaked figure during the Orre Arc who witnesses the J-Team confront Tagg for the Very Bad Thing before reappearing as a major villain for the Ranger-2 Arc.
  • Cunning Linguist: Can speak the Pokeverse equivalents of Mandarin, English, Japanese, and Kalosiannote , though the latter language isn't her most fluent. The former is justified due to the fact that she's from the Pokeverse equivalent of China.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Following Illusion's disbandment, her main issue has been trying to figure out what to do with the rest of her life.
  • Foil: In some ways, to Tagg. For example:
    • Both are of at least partial (In the case of Tagg) Chinese analogue descent and both tend to dress in ways to keep attention off of themselves, though Echo wears brighter clothing, mainly white, whereas Tagg has an affinity for more muted colors.
    • Tagg has a good relationship with his parents, whereas Echo murdered hers. (Albeit in the case of her mother it was a Mercy Kill.)
    • Echo directly runs the super organized Illusion Project, whereas Tagg is the de facto leader of the ragtag J-Team, which also plays into their opposing ideologies of philosophical egalitarianism vs freedom.
    • In terms of height Echo's about 5'2" and Tagg's 6'3".
    • Both are run by regret for the actions of their pasts.
  • Friendly Enemy: To Tagg prior to her Heel–Face Turn, as neither had anything personal against the other. Afterwards the "enemy" part disappears entirely.
  • The Gadfly: Has a particular love for trolling Tagg and manages to be one of the few people who can fluster him.
  • Heel–Face Turn: At the end of Ranger-2 she decides to disband the Illusion Project and ends up allying herself to the J-Team.
  • Noble Demon: Tries to run things in her organization as nobly as possible. Torture for instance is not allowed.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Tells Crewe that she ended up killing her mother and father, the former as a Mercy Kill, the latter due to him being abusive. She's hated herself ever since.
  • Older Than They Look: Despite being in her early 30s during Hoenn-2, she can easily pass for someone in their early to mid-20s.
  • Taught by Experience: Echo took note of previous criminal organizations' failures and actively works to avoid the same mistakes. She keeps her organization low-key, avoids referring to it as a "team", insists on a noticeable but not blatant dress code, and acknowledges how much of a threat the J-Team is despite it being mostly comprised of teenagers during Ranger-2.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Echo as a trainer prefers to rely more on strategy than raw power.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Prior to her Heel–Face Turn, she believes her actions are the only way to create world peace.

The Jerkbros

Two former members of the Seven Jerk Dragons who were punted to the OU under a curse and later turned human; they consider themselves adoptive brothers, hence their nickname.


The formerly Flygon former leader of the Ruby Flame Clan, who was once a trained mon alongside Seshirou before their trainer died.

  • Bash Brothers: He and Sesh make an excellent team and battle together as often as possible.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: The death of their trainer made them hate all other humans as a result.
  • Emotion Bomb: His Heart Of Gold goldspeech usually fuctions as this, intentionally or not.
  • Heel Realization: Two, first discovering his daughter Spectrum was alive and up against him in his home timeline and discovering she still existed in the OU and realizing he'd have a second chance with her if he changed his ways.
  • Humanity Ensues: Twice, first as a punishment by Team Umbra and Mew for hiding his and Seishirou's origins (which lasts about a week) and second after being infected with a weremon curse by Noir (which becomes permanent default humanity after he and his brother sacrifice their monality to cure the others infected).
  • True Companions: With his fellow teammate, Seshirou; they consider each other adoptive brothers.


The former Garchomp former leader of the Diamond Horn Clan, who was once a trained mon alongside Fuuma before their trainer died.

  • Alas, Poor Yorick: Ammy has his PMD-B counterpart's skull, which Darter likely recovered following his death in that timeline.
  • Bash Brothers: He and Fuu make an excellent team and battle together as often as possible.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: The death of their trainer made them bitter towards all humans.
  • Eye Scream: Lost an eye trying to rescue Monica, and got it replaced with a glass one.
  • Glass Eye: Has one to replace the one he lost.
  • Handicapped Badass: Missing an eye doesn't really slow him down at all.
  • Humanity Ensues: Twice, first as a punishment by Team Umbra and Mew for hiding his and Fuuma's origins (which lasts about a week) and second after being infected with a weremon curse by Noir (which becomes permanent default humanity after he and his brother sacrifice their monality to cure the other infected).
  • Tragic Keepsake: The necklace his trainer gave him before she died.
  • True Companions: With his fellow teammate, Fuuma; they consider each other adoptive brothers.


An accomplished Ace Trainer with several Championships under his belt, and Channah's weird older brother.

  • Bad People Abuse Animals: Garrett drives his team to their absolute limits as though he's competitively metagaming and not raising real creatures, which has horrendous effects on their mental well-being.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Is paranoid enough about his sister's safety to assign a giant mob of Wobbuffet to her protection and hunt down a serial killer thought to be dead, although both backfire to varying degrees. In the second case, Garrett's attempt to kill Ira just got him trapped in his Otherworld.
  • The Gadfly: Likes to mess with his family for fun.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: He's quite opinionated in not-exactly politically correct ways, such as his belief that Trainers being friends with their Pokémon holds them back, and can have an offensive sense of humor, while still being nominally good-aligned.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: In Channah's life, which might explain some things.
  • Sacrificial Lion: In The Room miniplot he seemingly dies as a result of Ira. He gets better, though.


An alternate self of Daydre hailing from a universe where she ended up becoming an Aura Vampire and went into self-imposed exile after killing an unknown but important politician roughly 14 to 15 years prior. Following her defeat at the hands of Daydre, she's been in PEFE custody.

For tropes associated with her OU counterpart, see We Are All Pokemon Trainers Main 1.

  • Animal Motifs: Foxes, she has the overall look of a Zoroark and when using her powers sprouts tails made of Obscura in a way akin to a Ninetales alongside fox ears on top of her head.
  • Anti-Hero: Her stint as a superhero is implied to fall under this as she tells Daydre she killed a lot of people while having a generally dark aesthetic to match.
  • Casting a Shadow: Is a Dark Obscuric, and a more advanced one than Daydre is, being her superior in a direct concentration.
  • Choke Hold: Her primary method of feeding on humans is to grab them by the neck and start draining, as she tries doing to Daydre.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Becoming a vampire forced her into despair, but the true push was her Rowan dying due to her need to feed to stay alive.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: "Friendship" might be pushing it, but following her defeat she doesn't bother trying to kill Daydre anymore and is willing to explain how she became the way she did. That said, she makes it clear that if Daydre ever does become an Aura Vampire like she did, she'll make sure to definitely kill her.
  • Fallen Hero: At some point she was a superhero, but it's unclear what happened between that and killing the politician that would force her into exile save for her mentioning to Daydre that she killed "a lot of people".
  • Femme Fatalons: Part of her outfit at age 26 were gloves with long red nails incorporated into them.
  • I Hate Past Me: Her self hatred is strong enough that she attempts to kill Daydre on sight, and nearly succeeds a few times.
  • Morality Pet: Truly cares for her bunch of assorted foxmons she's picked up over the years.
  • Older Than They Look: Ama's in her 40s, but save for the longer hair she looks just like Daydre in her 20s. Which makes sense since she is just Daydre but older.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: She's an Aura Vampire, having become so due to draining an enemy Aura Vampire who tried attacking Rowan around September 2019 and nearly drained her to death first.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Has long hair akin to a Zoroark's since being on the run doesn't give her the chance to bother cutting it.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Her general aesthetic has a lot of black with red accents, and she's tried to kill Daydre multiple times out of self-hatred.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: As a likely side effect of her vampirism, Ama has red eyes as opposed to the brown of her OU counterpart, and is a dangerous individual.
  • Reluctant Monster: Doesn't like being an Aura Vampire and only feeds for her continued survival.
  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor: When Daydre asks her how to use her newfound Obscura powers, past giving Daydre her old belt Auric medium to use Ama tells her to figure it out herself.
  • Sensible Heroes, Skimpy Villains: Her outfits at times tend to show a bit more skin than Daydre's do.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Assassinating a politician in her home timeline means that she can't live in civilization if she doesn't want to get arrested and imprisoned.


A costumed hero living in Galar, who for some reason has chosen to dress as a Flapple to fight crime. Their real name is Nasreen, but they're not often out of costume.

Percy Mortimer

A young woman with peculiar obscuric abilities, who works as a fossil reviver and electronics repairwoman. Actually the Schoolchild Phosphorus, of the Phantom Class.

  • Bad Powers, Good People: A necromancer who uses her abilities to revive dead fossils and fix broken electronics.
  • Cast from Calories: Her abilities drain calories exceptionally fast, so she keeps herself going on sports drinks.
  • Casting a Shadow: She can use Ghost Obscura, to a limited extent, as her powers are mostly dedicated to keeping herself alive.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Adelinde cut her in half, lengthwise, and as a result half of her is exposed bone shored up by her own abilities.
  • I Am Not a Gun: Seeks a way of using the powers the School gave her to do something good for the world.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's standoffish, prickly, and paranoid, but she is at her core a kind person under a great deal of stress.
  • Lich: She's only alive because of her powers. For this reason she's reluctant to attempt a mon form transformation in case she turns into something that can't support her abilities.
  • Necromancer: The true nature of her abilities. By combining Ghost Obscura and lightning, she can manipulate or flash-grow dead tissues, raise zombies, puppeteer corpses, call up ghosts to attack her opponents, and bring back dead phones.
  • Odd Friendship: Percy, a taciturn necromancer, is close friends with Apple-A-Day, a bright superhero.
  • Shock and Awe: She can use her Obscuric abilities to generate and manipulate electricity in a variety of ways.
  • The Sleepless: Is constantly under the effect of Electric Terrain, which prevents sleep. She's somehow not gone mad.

    PEFE Staff 


A PEFE Researcher who happens to look just like Ever, prior to discovering that she's trans and changing her genetic makeup to match.

  • Artifact Title: PEFE!Every was called that to separate them from Ever, but it's remained even after Ever excised the "y" from their name.
  • Character Development: Being outside of the HQ on a more regular basis is slowly causing her to gain a greater sense of personal morality and emotional openness.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Her mons are very good at lab work... but not so much at actual battling, save for Sharptooth the Krookodile and the Dunsparce Legion, barely, and the latter have sheer numbers on their side. If PEFE!Every's countermeasures fail, she's left completely helpless since unlike her mentor Tagg she's useless in a direct fight.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Tells the Sole Survivor Grunt to his face that she finds him and the rest of his deceased group to be utterly loathsome individuals for using mons as batteries.
  • Mad Scientist: Downplayed, and ping-pongs between here and Reluctant Mad Scientist or Kidnapped Scientist. She isn't quite as unhinged as the average example of the trope, but she refuses to stop creating, no matter what situation she's in and who gets custody of her work when she's done with it.
  • Nice Hat: Is always seen wearing a grey wide-brimmed hat, which she eventually trades in for a beanie following Carna destroying it.
  • No Social Skills: Lived in the bowels of PEFE HQ after being abandoned by her parents, up until Tagg found her about a year before the Sinnoh Arc, and doesn't like leaving the HQ at all, or any visitors, so she's bad at dealing with people. It's noted when they first met that her voice sounded as if she hadn't used it to speak to another human in a very long time.
  • Not So Stoic: The Alola and Entralink Arcs reveal that despite her stoic exterior, she's actually extremely afraid of failure and abandonment due to being abandoned by her parents. Since she views Tagg and Echo as the closest thing she has to parental figures, it means she's willing to do foolish things in order to impress them.
  • Odd Friendship: She and Ever have issues getting along, since PEFE!Every finds them weird and creepy, and Ever has no issue needling her over how she's treated them over the years, but they're actually somewhat friends despite it all.
  • Older Than They Look: At 14 they looked more like an elementary schooler due to years of malnutrition stunting their growth.
  • Self-Made Orphan: By proxy, since Unigma kills Martin and her teleport blocker kills Leslie.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: Can speak Sparceltongue, a Monese dialect unique to Dunsparce, which she uses to give the Legion orders without other people knowing.
  • Teleport Interdiction: Created a device based off of teleport jammers that allows for the teleportation, but not materialization. It's exactly as lethal as it sounds.
  • The Paranoiac: Due to having to fend for herself against the Scythermen and other Pokefutures experiments for years in the bowels of PEFE HQ after getting abandoned by her parents, plus getting abducted by Revy II and being forced to work for her for months, PEFE!Every is an extremely paranoid person at all times, and has numerous countermeasures to protect herself from all manner of threats.
  • Trap Master: Her specialty is in making various booby traps in order to defend herself. When a Pokefutures squad from another universe comes to try to take all of PEFE HQ's mons, between her traps, the Scythermen they were controlling turning on them, and the Dunsparce Legion, the squad suffers a 99% fatality rate save for one Grunt.
  • Undying Loyalty: Her ultimate loyalty is to the PEFE and its founders no matter what, and in her talk with her parents reveals that she's even internalized their motto to some extent despite her issues with general ethics. The person she's most loyal to, however, is Tagg, due to being the one to recruit her.
  • Wild Child: Lived by themselves in PEFE HQ for years before Tagg found them at age 14, looking more like a monster than a human due to their long and matted hair.
  • Zerg Rush: In a direct fight her main strategy if possible tends to be overwhelming her opponents with the combined forces of the Dunsparce Legion. Which tends to work out pretty well when it's a bunch of snakes with drills for tails that can easily run a person through.

Priscilla Kwan

PEFE's head of accounting, though her responsibilities tend to vary depending on the situation. Daughter of a rich magnate and an industrialist, and moonlights as the armored superhero Taipan.

Sterling "Beck" Beckett

Former head of security at Macraul Manor and currently an employee at PEFE.

  • Black and Nerdy: A mixed-race Galarian of [African] descent and a cybersecurity expert.
  • Defector from Decadence: After an incident in Macraul Manor, he defected to PEFE after being verbally and physically abused by the Macrauls.
  • Mixed Ancestry: Part-Black, Part-White, Part-South Asian
  • Oop North: Hails from Wedgehurst and lived in Motostoke, developing a very [Northern] working class accent in the process.
  • What, Exactly, Is His Job?: The extent of what he does at PEFE is not known. Presumably, he's part of the security detail, but he does a lot of things that aren't under that. It's generally safer to call him "Priscilla's assistant."

    The Geographic Society 

An expy of a similarly named IRL publication and media franchise, the Geographic Society focuses on science journalism and publication. It is a massive franchise that contains a documentary series, a science and culture magazine, a weekly news publication, a channel full of edutainment content, and a [YouTube] channel with an edutainment program.

Tropes that apply to the GeoSoc as a whole include:

  • Adventurer Archaeologist: Their old membership from the 19th and early 20th Centuries were like this.
  • Adventure Guild: Sometimes, the org kinda acts like this when giving out assignments to employees.
  • Badass Bystander: Almost a job requirement. GeoSoc employees on the field regularly encounter dangerous situations and can hold their own. At least one employee is secretly a Science Hero.
  • Camera Fiend: An entire org's worth of them.
  • Coca-Pepsi, Inc.: Although based on National Geographic, the org also has shades of Discovery Communications in its matrix, more often than not as snide references to their programming. The actual analogue for Discovery, Contact Communications, also exists.
  • Giant Flyer: The org employs a squadron of trained Fearows as aerial videographers.
  • The Intern: They have a robust internship program that can be a potent qualification for many college and job applications further down the line.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Commands an army of these.
  • Oddly Small Organization: Averted; GeoSoc has a complex organizational structure with offices across multiple regions with their own leadership, typically headed by a board of senior editors and an editor-in-chief
  • The Main Characters Do Everything: Played with by necessity: although various side characters with clear non-RP jobs are name dropped and mentioned, the action usually focuses on journalists, field videographers, and editorial staff, and not a few of their filmmakers shoot almost entirely guerilla-style.
  • Shout-Out: The org serves as an in-universe means to mention and expound upon Pokémon lore, especially from the anime and spinoff games. Their preferred photographers, for instance, are trained under Todd Snap's program.

Jean Martel

The senior editor of the Kalos division of the Geographic Society who oversees the Kalosian edition of its magazine and website. A former member of the gendarme of Kalos, the rumors of him crime fighting in his spare time are probably grossly exaggerated.

Jonathan Halliburton

A senior writer at the Kalos Division who functions as Jean's right hand. In at least two futures he died and became a Rotom.

Walter the Porygon2

Hank Habakkuk Harvey

The editor-in-chief and line producer for the Unovan division of the Geographic Society.

Newsreel the Gengar

Hank's main pokémon.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Takes on this role. He usually heads meetings for Geo Soc pokémon the same way his trainer holds meetings for human employees of the Society.

Flash Grant

Hank Harvey's secretary, an animation student and painter who doubles as one of the artists for Geographic Society Magazine. Currently dating Shutter.

Upton Braun

A new guy, a former gofer turned field reporter. Actually a glitchy biotech experiment from another timeline, specifically a Pokefutures experiment focused on cloning Zapdos. His story involved suspending said tissue on a matrix formed from two human cell lines.

Phineas the Rotom

Baal the Zoroark

  • Casanova Wannabe: He does not see being part cyborg to be any impediment toward flirting and trying to mate with other pokémon.
  • Cyborg: Was subject to painful "augmentation" and mutilation, like most of Upton's team prior to their escape.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He likes to snark at his trainer and (especially) at Phineas.
  • Master of Illusion / Voluntary Shape Shifter: He's a Zoroark; it comes with the territory.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Named for Ba'al, a title given to various tutelary deities in Canaanite Mythology, most famously Ba'al Hammon of Carthage.
  • Talking Pokémon: He uses his illusion powers to give the impression that he is speaking to humans in a human language they understand. He calls this legitimate talking; Phineas, who uses a translator program, calls this cheating.

Thomas Anthony Peterson

A Geographic Society art department 3D modeler. He, Tommy, and Adrian have first and last names that sound alike.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: His Pokémon are all catmons.
  • Mixed Ancestry: Part Kantonian, Part White Unovan.
  • In-Series Nickname: Prefers to call himself Tom or Tommy, but goes by Anthony. Peterson, Pearson, and Petersen are collectively known as "the Tommies."
  • Name's the Same: He and Tommy have a soundalike name and rely on calling each other by their middle names to differentiate one another. They share this trouble with Pearson.
  • Noodle People: He is very tall and gangly.
  • Patriotic Fervor: Heavily identifies with his Kantonian heritage.

Thomas Adrian Pearson

A digital chart artist from the Geographic Society art department. He, Tommy, and Anthony have first and last names that sound alike.
  • Happily Married: To his husband Lars.
  • In-Series Nickname: His pet name is Tom-Tom. Goes by Adrian when around the Tommies.
  • Name's the Same: He, Anthony, and Tommy have names that sound alike when pronounced. This confusion leads to them calling each other by their middle names.

    The Oasis 


A School escapee associated with the Oasis, formally known under the designation Iridium, and a fugitive from the organization for more than 20 years.

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: Her disc constructs can cut through both flesh and metal as if they were air.
  • Apologetic Attacker: Apologizes to Francis before killing him with a barrier-induced stroke.
  • Attack Reflector: Can create barriers that absorb strong blows before sending the force back at the attacker in a way akin to the Reflect line of spells.
  • Barrier Warrior: She's a Psychic that specializes in the creation of barriers. While they can and often are used as shielding, she also uses them offensively to smash opponents into walls or the ground with or without added spikes, or form disc constructs capable of easily bisecting a man. She can also form tiny barriers inside people to cause major blood vessel blockage, killing a Templar with a stroke, but it requires too much concentration to use in a direct fight.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Chiyo is a very nice person, but she's also not the sort of person you'd want to cross, as she's quite willing to use lethal force to defend herself.
  • Brainy Brunette: She's a dark-haired astronomy nerd who's shown to be pretty introspective.
  • Burger Fool: Among the jobs she's taken to support herself in the past is a job as a front-server at a Burger Monarch, the setting's equivalent to Burger King. She wasn't particularly fond of it.
  • Cosmic Motifs: Has a close association to the stars apart from being into astronomy:
    • Her one Pokémon is a Minior, a Pokémon based on shooting stars, and she transforms into a Star Sweet wearing Rainbow Swirl Alcremie.
    • She wears a star-shaped necklace with a rainbow trailing behind it.
    • Her main weapon construct when going all out is a meteor hammer.
  • Cradling Your Kill: Cradles Boron after being forced to mortally wound her in self-defense.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Has a bug-out bag prepared for if she needs to go on the run from the School immediately.
  • Deadly Forcefield: Her barriers can be used to crush people against walls, her death discs are small barriers with sharp edges, and she can reduce people to ashes by forming barriers around them and heating the temperature inside.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She can get very snarky when dealing with murderous Templars, having gotten the better of them so many times that they don't scare her as much as they do other escapees.
  • Defiant to the End: When things aren't looking great she just glares at her enemies or even does a Spiteful Spit rather than beg or grovel for her life.
  • Epic Flail: A combination attack she has with Dactyl is creating a meteor hammer construct with Dactyl encased inside a flaming barrier serving as the head.
  • Fighting Your Friend: In 2006 she was forced to fight her friend Boron, a Batchmate turned Alumni, and ended up killing her in self-defense.
  • Geek: She's a major astronomy nerd, and likes looking at the stars whenever she has the time.
  • Good Bad Girl: Chiyo has no issues with casual sex (Saying that the School didn't make them with a sense of shame where that was concerned), implies that she does cam modeling as a source of income since other methods of work are hard for her to get and she has no issues showing off her body, and is one of the most good natured people you'll ever meet and very sweet to her friends and lovers.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Chiyo is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet and is firmly good aligned. Her decades of avoiding the School and fighting off the Templars and Alumni sent after her have also made her very ruthless in a fight, with Chiyo's opponents coming out of them either critically injured or dead. That said, she's not incapable of showing mercy and won't kill an opponent in cold blood, as shown when she spares Louise on account of her apparent age and unwillingness to kill an already downed opponent, and generally gives her potential enemies the chance to flee before engaging in combat as for the most part she dislikes killing and hurting people.
  • Had to Be Sharp: Apart from her skills in combat she's managed to avoid capture or liquidation by Templars for decades by being very smart and constantly moving around.
  • Hero of Another Story: The main protagonist of the "Chiyo Gaiden" segment of the Galar Arc when Tagg revisits AU Celadon.
  • I Owe You My Life: Is quite grateful to Tagg for saving her life from the School when they were kids and wishes to return the favor one day.
  • It's Not You, It's My Enemies: Save for the other members of her Oasis group in general and Nicky and Kendra in particular, despite her friendliness Chiyo has few close relationships due to her fears of the School hurting the people she cares about to get to her.
  • Lethal Harmless Powers: On the face of it barriers don't seem that dangerous, but Chiyo sending even her most basic barriers at people is at maximum speed akin to getting getting hit by a car, to say nothing of her incredibly sharp disc constructs being derived from her barriers, and her ability to form barriers inside people's major blood vessels.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: She starts using her sub-element in combat only when truly pushed, as her basic abilities are already pretty deadly on their own.
  • Meteor-Summoning Attack: One of her most powerful attacks is sending down star shaped Auric constructs at her enemies.
  • Mixed Ancestry: She's got the same general School genetic slurry from various sources as other experiments, but her exact phenotype gives her the appearance of someone of mixed East Asian and Black descent.
  • Morphic Resonance: Her Alcremie form keeps her purple eyes despite Chiyo using a Star Sweet to evolve, which normally gives the resulting Alcremie yellow eyes.
  • Nice Girl: One of the first things you'll notice about Chiyo if she's not in a combat situation is how nice she is.
  • One-Man Army: Between her and Dactyl they slaughter hordes of School forces consisting of trained mercenaries, clone soldiers, and enemy Pokémon, on top of numerous Templars. It's to the point that up until the Chiyo Gaiden plot the School had been avoiding her for a while, deeming chasing her a waste of resources due to the amount of people she ends up injuring or killing.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: Turns into the Fairy-type Alcremie when using an transformation item.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Chiyo is 5'3" but her fists can send people twice her size reeling, on top of being one of the setting's most dangerous Aurics.
  • Playing with Fire: She can generate rainbow flames by increasing the temperature of her barriers with telekinesis, giving her a Fire subtype. She can use it for things ranging from heating her tea, to using it to increase the cutting power of her disc constructs, and burning things to cinders in her bubble barriers.
  • Polyamory: Chiyo's in a quasi-relationship with both Nicky and Kendra.
  • Psychic Powers: Apart from her use of barriers, Chiyo is a psychic capable of using both Aura Infuse and the Auric Charge, though mostly as secondary techniques when a barrier isn't very useful, and can also use telepathy.
  • Punny Name: Her first known alias, "Katy Boundree", is a pun on the K-T Boundary, a line of iridium separating the rocks of Cretaceous from the Paleocene.
  • Queer Establishing Moment: Chiyo's pansexuality is established in a flashback when she mentions having sexual relations with "men, women, [and] those who are both and neither."
  • Rainbow Motif:
    • Her School designation is Iridium, derived from the Greek goddess Iris, the personification of rainbows.
    • Her Aura is a unique rainbow color normally only seen in Aura Vampires. During her battle with actual Aura Vampire Templar Hortensia the Spider, Chiyo mentions in her inner monologue that it has caused her to be mistaken for one in the past.
    • Her Pokéform is a Rainbow Swirl Alcremie.
    • In terms of the rainbow's relation to luck, Chiyo has survived more than 20 years as a fugitive without getting recaptured or killed, and lacks the age-related issues that often happen to Schoolkids that make it to late adolescence and adulthood.
  • Really Gets Around: Has no real issues with casual sex, though she doesn't really partake in it onscreen.
  • Really Moves Around: Being a fugitive means spending a lot of time moving from place to place.
  • Roaring Rampage of Rescue: After the School kidnaps her quasi-girlfriends Nicky and Kendra, Chiyo with the help of some of Tagg's mons raids the flying train they're being kept in and decimates everyone in her path, including two Templars with very dangerous abilities.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: Knows Monese as a result of getting transformed into a Milcery upon entering PMD-A.
  • Spider-Sense: Is implied to have an ability similar to Detect that informs her of potential danger and lets her dodge quickly.
  • Star Power: Full use of her powers has her discs turn into stars capable of exploding into rainbow flame upon impact with an opponent.
  • Super Prototype: Chiyo is of the standard Schoolchild line, but has the power and skill to match and kill the Templars she's supposed to be inferior to. For this reason, the School wishes to recover her genetic information in order to make better Templars. Chiyo is aware of this, which is why her wishes upon death are to be cremated to deny the School any chance of obtaining her genetic material.
  • Supernatural Is Purple: Has the purple eyes common to School creations.
  • Teleportation: She can teleport between locations by opening rifts using her barriers, a trick she picked up thanks to Nicky and Kendra's help. She's a pretty strong teleporter, as she can teleport between Galar and Unova without getting winded. However, she can only use it for long distance travel, and not in combat like a Xatu can.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Her most prized possession is a star necklace with a rainbow trailing behind it that was given to her as a birthday present by her Batch's Curium, who died of rapid-aging related cancer years prior, as a nod to her element's meaning and her love of space. '
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Her relationship with Nicky and Kendra can be best described by the Facebook status "It's complicated", but she's quite willing to kill to protect them, and it serves as a major motivator for her to do so when she otherwise dislikes killing.
  • Walking the Earth: Spent the past 20 years of her life prior to the Galar Arc constantly traveling to avoid School attention, fighting Templars the whole way.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Makes a point out of noting that she doesn't kill children, implicitly including Schoolchildren and younger Templars if they're sent after her.
  • Younger Than They Look: Biologically and mentally in her 30s, but chronologically in her 20s during the Galar Arc due to being basically born into teenagerhood by the School. When Chiyo met the 10 year old Tagg for the first time, less than a year had passed since her decanting but she resembled and was mentally on par with an average 14 year old.
  • You Are Number 6: Defied, every time she's referred to as "Iridium" by Templars she angrily corrects them by stating her chosen name. The only exception is with her fellow Batchmates.

Nicky and Kendra

A Faller duo who travel to various subplanes, and Chiyo's closest friends.

  • Aura Vision: Nicky can use Aura Sense to find rifts to open so that she and Kendra can go explore various subplanes.
  • Compelling Voice: Kendra is a Heart of Gold capable of using Goldvoice to convince people to listen to them, though it doesn't always work.
  • Dimensional Traveler: Nicky and Kendra use rifts to explore numerous subplanes and some of the major Nine Realms, having visited the CU once with Chiyo but being forced to retreat after meeting some demons.
  • Damsel out of Distress: At Chiyo Gaiden's climax they're kidnapped by the School and taken aboard the Air Train, Chiyo's assault manages to give them the tools they need to free themselves, and they even somewhat help during the battles against Hortensia and Gerald.
  • The Dividual: The two are never seen apart from one another for long.
  • Extradimensional Shortcut: They can use Nicky's ability to find rifts to move quickly from place to place.
  • Nice Girls: They're both very nice people.
  • Non-Action Guy: They make a point out of noting that they're not fighters, and mainly rely on their general personability to get out of trouble when Chiyo isn't around, with Nicky noting that they try to avoid "J-Team stuff".
  • Polyamory: They're dating each other, and in a quasi-relationship with Chiyo due to the latter's fears of the School harming them to get to her if they go any further.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: They can both understand Monese, but whether they've been transformed into mons or learned it some other way remains unknown, though considering their planehopping the former is very likely as Chiyo mentions they've visited Treasure Town in PMD-A in the past.


A refugee from another universe who chose to stay in the OU.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: We don't know much about Yolei's backstory, but what we do know is that her life in her home universe was bad enough that she would rather make a whole new life in another universe and has no regrets doing so.
  • I Choose to Stay: Yolei was originally forcibly trafficked from her old universe to the OU, but upon escaping, she decided to stay because her life in her home universe sucked, taking advantage of the LILA Act to get a proper identity.


A man who once got stuck in PMD-A.

  • Baleful Polymorph: Was turned into an Applin upon ending up in PMD-A.
  • Trapped in Another World: Found a Timespace Orb Shard during 2012, ie the time of the PMD-R Arc, and got transported to PMD-A, the world of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series.


    The Tiny Trio 

A trio of three humans who happen to be artificially apotheosised into a new Weather Trio that are intermediates between "friends" and "Legendaries". Levi and Santiago were originally known as Depthcharge and Buggle respectively, but as they acquired human forms they decided to go with their human names more often.

General Tropes

  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: Santiago (Groudon) is Big, Vyvyan (Rayquaza) is Thin and Levi (Kyogre) is Short.
  • Land, Sea, Sky: By nature of being a newbie Weather Trio.
  • Morphic Resonance: In mon form Sandy has a chunk taken off his left knee representing the knee he crushed in a New Mauville related work accident, Levi is missing two fin tips on his right fluke, and Vyvyan keeps a burned right horn.
  • Was Once a Man: Were once humans before being forcibly transformed into mons for crazed Magma, Aqua, and Ozone cultists.

Vyvyan (Rayquaza)

A somewhat nervous and jumpy former Magma Grunt now Rayquaza hailing from Fallarbor town. Specializing in Psychic-type Pokemon, the majority of his Pokemon could communicate to him via telekinesis before he got the ability to talk to them.

Bridget (Male Gardevoir)

Anja (Absol)

  • Cruel to Be Kind: When confronted by Tagg and his mons about betraying Vyvyan, she claims that she did it in order to prevent a psychotic breakdown upon his transformation, though the way she says it merely makes them hate her more.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: Prophesies Vyvyan's morphing, and actively tries to make it happen.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: No one likes Anja for what she's done regarding Vyvyan, and Tagg in particular nearly had his mons attack her upon finding her under Sol's ownership.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Manipulated the events that led to Vyvyan becoming a Rayquaza, including playing the normally savvy Tagg like a fiddle, which he happens to still be ashamed of years afterward as he confesses to both Lucius and Vyvyan himself during the Holonquest and Hoenn-2 arcs respectively.

Santiago (Groudon) Full Name: Santiago Baltasar Ruiz de Tierra.

  • Older Than They Look: Despite his young looking human body, he's actually middle-aged in human years.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Let's see, he originally was part of the New Mauville Project in order to support his family in PokéMexico, only to lose his job, get captured by Magma cultists and have his starter most likely murdered by their hands, loses his memory in the transformation, and only learns all this after he ends up going to a secret basement in Mauville decades later.
  • South of the Border: Hails from the Pokeverse equivalent of Oaxaca.
  • The Ego: Often plays the mediator between Levi and Vyvyan.
  • Gentle Giant: He may be 6'4, but he's a big softie.
  • The Old Country: Talks about his past in PokéOaxaca like this.

Levi, formerly known as Depthcharge (Kyogre) Full Name: Y'hoshua ben Yitzhak haLevi (Joshua I. Levi)

  • Anything That Moves: Is noted for pursuing sexual encounters with just about anyone, mortal or divine, with no accounting for taste.
  • Bishōnen: Is quite pretty in appearance, even if his immature personality is a turnoff for most people.
  • The Casanova: Is mentioned to have a long string of sexual encounters, but doesn't persue anyone who isn't immortal for a long term relationship.
  • Extreme Libido: Is described by Sandy and Vyvyan as having "a 50 year old's lust and a 21 year old's libido".
  • Really Gets Around: Has lots of sex with different people all the time and is very open about that fact.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Openly and unabashedly horny, but otherwise a very charming and pleasant (if somewhat obnoxious) individual
  • Manchild: Is woefully immature for his age, much to the chagrin of the other legendaries (especially Yveltal).
  • Big Eater: Has a legendarily voracious appetite.
  • Older Than They Look: Like Santiago, he is frozen in a 21 year old's body and mentality despite being 52 years old.
  • The Id: The most impulsive and rash of the trio, as well as the most emotional.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Has this reputation among the legendaries as a whole due to his obnoxious and annoying attitude. Though he is on good terms with Santiago and Xerneas.
  • Jewish and Nerdy: Despite not having any typical "nerdy" traits. The only bigger JoJo's Bizarre Adventure nerd you'll find is his sister.
  • Genius Ditz: Isn't the most booksmart guy and is rather crass and petty, but has shown to be quite skilled in stuff like metalwork.
  • Street Smart: Related to the above, he's shown to be more in tune to his surroundings and pragmatic than he lets on.
  • Collector of the Strange: A bit of a hoarder. His grotto has everything from rusty, empty tin cans to sunken treasure.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Is the most impulsive out of the trio.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: With all birds, but especially Yveltal and the Wingull line.


General Tropes

  • Animalistic Abomination: The weather, creation, and vitality trios, beings representing laws of nature that manifest in bestial forms.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Despite being as a whole rather silly, they can act decisively if needed.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Purged the Alakagross civilization for their callous disregard of other species and the deaths of the weather trio.
  • Holy Is Not Safe: The legendaries are good, and many are even friendly, but they're still beings of mass destruction that should not be trifled with.
  • Immortality: Most are of the never-dying variety.
  • King of All Cosmos: As a whole, they have some odd quirks ranging from Groudon's gaming habit to Oblivia's Articuno being a Reshiram fangirl and more. They do tend to play this down in front of most non-J-Team mortals, however, to keep a certain gravitas.
  • Olympus Mons: Natch.


  • All Your Powers Combined: Has the powers of all the other legendaries.
  • Big Good: Is the greatest force of good in the setting, though he's rarely seen.
  • Divine Delegation: Mostly leaves things to the other legendaries as he's buried by paperwork.
  • God: Is the creator diety of the Pokeverse.


  • Ascended Extra: Pretty much can be called a Main Character in her own right.
  • The Alcoholic: Has gotten drunk on at least two occasions. Her hangovers are particularly brutal to the fabric of space.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Eventually revealed to be female, at least in mentality.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Missingno ends up possessing her.
  • Does This Make Me Look Fat?: Jane makes a comment about Palkia's tail. Palkia then proceeds to ask if she means that she's fat.
  • Draconic Abomination: When her true form is glimpsed in Northern Shadow in battle with the Ur-Glitch, it takes the form of spheres in the shape of a dragon with infinite mass and volume.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Due to Missingno possession, though it wears off once it's defeated.
  • Hartman Hips: Has ridiculously proportioned hips.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Has an even nastier one than her brother.
  • No Indoor Voice: Speaks in ALL CAPS.
  • Mind Control: Gets enthralled Missingno during Sinnoh.


  • Draconic Abomination: When Tagg and co meet him in the Temporal World during the Ranger-2 Arc, he appears as a vaguely draconic shaped dark blue mass covered in a seemingly infinite amount of diamonds.
  • Elective Unintelligible: Originally it seems that he can only communicate in loud SKREEEEEEEEEEEs when there is no Psychic type present, but it's hinted and outright stated that he can speak just fine and just does it for amusement.
  • Otherworldly and Sexually Ambiguous: At first, though nowadays Dialga appears to use masculine pronouns.
  • Batman Gambit:
    • Sending DS to the dimension where the legendaries were imprisoned, making sure she ends up where the Lake Trio would find her. This lead to DS joining the Lake Trio in their search for Palkia, eventually finding the petrified Palkia and the Lustrous Orb not far away from her. DS uses the Lustrous Orb to restore Palkia to normal, allowing the five of them to escape from the dimension just in time for the final battle.
    • Considering how long Tagg has had the Adamant Orb, the weird circumstances in which he got it, and its use in the final battles of the Unova-1 and AU arcs, Dialga was most likely using him in one as well.
  • Bold Inflation: Much like his sister when he actually feels like talking he talks in constant bold font.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Twice, first by Missingno, and then by Cyrus.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Twice, due to mind control.
  • Fighting from the Inside: In the alternate timeline arc, he manages to do this long enough to save DS' life when Cyrus orders him to destroy her.


Darkrai and Cresselia

  • Amnesiac Dissonance: Darkrai is really just a 'big mushy pushover', but went through a phase where he tried to blow up the universe. And then he contracted amnesia.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: Cresselia
  • Deliver Us from Evil: Darkrai says that he created Cresselia to counter all the nightmares he kept giving.
    • Cresselia may have lied about this, seeing as a book on the history of the Dream World seems to contradict Cresselia's claims.
  • Luke, I Might Be Your Father: Darkrai claims to be Cresselia's father, but a book in the Dream World library refers to Darkrai as Cresselia's brother, leaving their relationship ambiguous.
  • Odd Friendship: Darkrai and Lyuri can look like this sometimes, they don't look particularly close, but Lyuri acts in a very casual way around him and he enjoys her company.
  • Sink-or-Swim Fatherhood: Darkrai
  • Valley Girl: Cresselia talks like this.

Manaphy (PMD arc Manaphy and Oblivia arc Manaphy)

  • Badass Adorable: PMD arc Manaphy is one, it is currently unknown if Oblivia arc Manaphy will grow up to be one as well.
  • Egg Macguffin: Oblivia arc Manaphy starts out as one of these, and shortly after hatching is abducted by Pokémon Pinchers. Trying to find and rescue him from the Pinchers becomes the main focus of the Oblivia arc.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: PMD arc Manaphy was never shown using his Heart Swap attack, but the Oblivia arc Manaphy used it twice. First at the beginning of the Oblivia arc shortly after hatching, accidentally causing Anom and Wolf to switch bodies and again near the end to switch them back.
  • Making a Splash: Water type.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: PMD Manaphy's subplot in the PMD arc was not resolved on-screen, and so it had to be mentioned to have happened off-screen. Lampshaded when PMD Manaphy makes a cameo appearance later on and mentions that he doesn't really remember how his friends were rescued from Missingno.

Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf

The Sabot Warriors (Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Keldeo)

Keldeo The First

  • Black Cloak: Wears one of these to avoid attracting attention.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: Arrives to assist the trainers in the final battle against the Team Plasma remnant and 'M.
  • Embarrassing First Name: His real name is Kelp.
  • Heroic BSoD: Has an epic one after being unable to do any damage to M during the final battle. Thankfully, he gets better in time to help deal the final blow.
  • Knight In Shining Armour: Takes on this archetype.


  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Is captured and turned into a Shadow Pokémon by Ghetsis. Luckily, DS and Wolf were able to bring him back to his senses.
  • Gentle Giant: Despite his size and fearsome reputation, he's actually a really nice guy.
  • An Ice Person: Ice type, natch.
  • Once Done, Never Forgotten: Kyurem seems to find it somewhat annoying that people in Lacunosa Town still think he eats people.
  • Power Incontinence: Has a few problems with his ice powers leaking out, which occasionally causes him to accidentally freeze some of his belongings, as well as his own body.
  • The Unintelligible: To everyone who doesn't have a Mind of Crystal, though in the PMD-B timeline he's figured out how to talk with other beings.
  • To Serve Man: Used to be a human eater, but that was a really long time ago.

Reshiram and Zekrom

  • Big Damn Heroes: They're the first legendaries to arrive to help out during the final battle against 'M.
  • Interspecies Romance: Reshiram with Luke, and later, Zekrom with Jane.
  • Opposites Attract: Zekrom has admitted that he loves Reshiram even though she's pretty much his complete opposite. It apparently works both ways.
  • Playing with Fire: Reshiram.
  • Shock and Awe: Zekrom.
  • Walking Techbane: Reshiram is useless with any sort of technology in comparison to Zekrom..
  • Wild Mass Guessing: An in universe example, the two have been trying figure out just what their connection is with Kyurem. They haven't had much luck so far.

The Oblivia Beasts (Raikou, Entei, Suicune)

  • Hulk Speak: Entei speaks in this.
  • No Indoor Voice: Entei. All the time.
  • Neat Freak: Suicune is one of these. However, he mellowness allows her keep it very subtle.
  • Only Sane Man: Although she has her quirks, Suicune is pretty normal compared to the other two members of the trio.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Raikou likes pop tarts. A lot.
  • Verbal Tic: Raikou begins or ends his sentences with the word "Nya."

The Oblivia Birds (Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres)

The Oblivia Eon Dragons



  • Blood Knight: Loves a good fight, which is ironic considering the fact that his job is to mediate between Groudon and Kyogre.
  • Time Abyss: Like Groudon and Kyogre.

Magic Mirror Darkrai/Walt

Heatran of Mt. Battle

  • The Atoner: The eruption at Mt. Battle over a thousand years ago? He caused it in an angry fit over how humans would fight and killed over (and using) the metals he gifted them. This created the Eclo Wastes, and now he seeks to return the wastes to their former form; pasture.
  • Badass in Distress: Was captured and Shadowed due to him holding back against a Shadowed Regina. This causes Mt Battle to basically "shut down", causing it to go dormant.
  • Playing with Fire: As is expected from a Heatran, he uses Fire-type moves, right down to his signature "Magma Storm".


  • Big Eater: According to Yveltal, and as seen in the Santiago walkabout, Xerneas is actually quite the big eater.
  • Captain Ersatz: His personality is partially based on that of Uncle Iroh with a few dashes of Merlin.
  • Spot of Tea: Takes great pride in his herbal brews.


  • Giant Flyer: A large bird with a 14 foot wingspan.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: As a death and destruction deity it's not very hard to set her off, especially if you cheat, manipulate, or tease her in some way.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite not being the nicest of mons, Yveltal is ultimately good. Tagg points out that her sphere not only encompasses destruction, but change.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Is snarky, sassy, and temperamental, but ultimately has a soft side deep down... Which is why she's aligned with Hearts of Gold.
  • Otherworldly and Sexually Ambiguous: She's the closest a Legendary of her sort can get to femmefluid (genderfluid leaning female); while typically female in voice and personality she sometimes identifies as male and those change accordingly.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: With Straw and Levi, for different reasons; Straw for repeatedly inadvertently cheating death, and Levi for reasons initially related to perceiving him as a threat to her relationship with Salvador and worsened by teasing on his end.
  • Tsundere: Reconstructed via being closer to the more traditional/original meaning of the term. Around those she's not familiar with (or Anthony), she can be quite cavalier and harsh. However, towards those she's more familiar and comfortable with (Like Salvador or Xerneas) she's a lot more soft and cordial.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Takes the form of a human named Yvonne (or Yvan when male) or more innocuous birdmons like Murkrow or Starly to interact with mortals more discreetly.


The Mew

Multiple Mew exist within the WAAPT universe, with varying personalities and reputations.

Mew Prime

The first Mew the J-Team meets, who turned Crewe into a human when she was a baby.

  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Prolonged interactions with J-Teamers have served to make her warmer and more considerate than she used to be.
  • Expy: Her tendency to change people and mons in the name of helping them, but only making things worse, is heavily based on Lucinda the fairy.
  • Freudian Excuse: Her own flashbacks reveal that she tried to be closer to mortal mons before discovering their mortality, which made her more detached over the centuries.
  • Genetic Engineering Is the New Nuke: While all Mew have the ability to alter the genome of other mons and humans as well as themselves, Mew Prime is the most skilled we've seen yet in WAAPT. For instance, part of the deception she did in order for people not to ask questions regarding Crewe's heritage was to give her the genetic profile of a potential child of her adoptive parents.
  • Pet the Dog: Her reason for turning Crewe the Sneasel into a human in the first place was because she took pity on an almost blind baby mon who probably wouldn't have survived for long in the wild.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: The J-Team isn't all that happy when they find out about her habit of "helping" people and what it did to Crewe in particular, even if it did end up saving the latter's life.


A shiny Mew who was Sol's prize in the Gold Conference.

  • Manipulative Bastard: Out of all the known Mew in WAAPT, she's the closest to outright amoral, having manipulated even Sol in the past for her own purposes.


The Mew of Holon, and a natural Delta Pokémon.


The Okamlatii Trio

A trio consisting of Waka the Latios, Kaguya the Shiny Latias, and Kiki the Latias, named for the former two's ties to the Moon Tribe and Celestials.




    The Greninja Squad 

The GreNinja Squad

A group of Froakie line Pokémon started by Teishi. They train to be effective ninjas but for the most they are just a group of friends doing stuff together that just happens to be ninja-themed for the most part. Due to how Teishi is one of Sakura's Pokémon, this group is frequently around the J-Team.

The Squad in general


See We Are All Pokemon Trainers Main 2 under Sakura's Pokémon.


  • Deadpan Snarker: Probably the most sharp-witted of the Squad.
  • Foil: Acts as one for Teishi, being calmer, serious, relaxed in contrast to his leader's more excitable, cheerful and energetic nature.
  • Playing with Fire: His Hidden Power is of the Fire type, as such he's the only one of the team that can turn into the Fire type.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Teishi's Red.
  • Shout-Out: His name, to Ryu Hayabusa.


  • An Ice Person: He has a preference for Ice type moves, despite lacking the Protean ability.
  • Cheerful Child: Like Teishi, he's a very friendly and optimistic, always finding a reason to be cheerful.
  • The Ditz: Not to the point of being dumb, but he's clearly not as sharp as the others.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Strider's Blue.
  • Shout-Out: His name, to Mortal Kombat.


  • Foil: He rarely speaks and usually keeps a deadpan expression in contrast to the talkative and always cheerful Sub-Zero.
  • The Quiet One: He gets the fewest lines out of everyone in the Squad.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Sub-Zero's Red.
  • Shout-Out: His name, to Strider Hiryuu
  • The Strategist: His role in the team
  • Trap Master: Part of what makes him the strategist is that he's good at coming with traps and ambush strategies.


  • One of the Kids: He's an adult in comparison to the rest of the Squad, who are around teenagers. Despite this, he still follows Teishi's commands.
  • Secret Keeper: Kept everything about Sensei hidden from the Squad until he was ready to reveal everything himself.
  • Shout-Out: His name is one to the character of same "name" in Final Fantasy VI
  • The Trickster: He has a tendency of being very uncooperative and misleading just to confuse everyone.
  • Unreliable Narrator: When answering some of Ryu's questions, he usually kept the answers hidden between vague statements.

    Other Pokémon 


A Cleffa from the Dream World who happens to be friends with Tagg, though not an official member of his team.


A Dratini-EX who met Tagg and his team during the Ranger-2 arc after falling out of a dimensional rift.


A golden Noctowl. When Slouch and his team found themselves inexplicably lost in the Mystery Zone, he was the one to send them home. Since then, he has screwed with them in various ways.

  • Meaningful Name: Lustre (meaning a radiant shine) + Strix (a genus of owl, also a bird of ill omen in Greek mythology)
  • The Owl-Knowing One: Gives off this appearance at first, but is quickly brought down to Earth after being physically threatened.

  • Sticky Fingers: Steals Slouch's wallet (And inadvertently, his phone). Is revealed to have a mountainous hoard of stolen wallets.


A Drampa-EX met by Chiyo and Dactyl in Galar. While technically caught by her as part of a pact to take on the School, he is not part of her team.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Comes off as a perfectly nice dragon, but Chiyo and Dactyl first meet him after he's slaughtered an entire squad of Templars and left their bodies to be eaten by wild Pokémon.
  • Four Gods: He's named after the Azure Dragon of Chinese mythology.
  • Friend to All Children: He's a typical Drampa in that he loves all children, so the School's treatment of children makes them especially abhorrent in his eyes.
  • Long-Lived: Implies that he's at least centuries old when he meets Chiyo and Dactyl for the first time.
  • The Nose Knows: Identifies Chiyo as a School experiment by her scent.
