Emi the Sandslash
- Played by: Pikaninja 7
A teenager with a happy-go-lucky view on life, who's restraint is almost as lacking as his innocence. He's adequate with machines and always carries tools with him. He was also a former member of Team Plasma charged with making sure that his king was content and is one of the remaining members who actually wished for Pokemon liberation for the benefits to Pokemon and has since reflected on his actions.Recently, he has become more level headed and has essentially left the nest for the most part. He has since taken in Wally as his Protege and is currently training him to better his physical condition.
Many of the team are just plain nonsensical for the moves they carry so they all exhibit:
- Gameplay and Story Segregation: See above.
- Balloonacy: Can fly using balloons.
- Shock and Awe: Electric types.
- Zerg Rush: Should all else fail, this is their primary form of attack.

- Flight: Can actually fly.

- Gameplay and Story Integration: Casval counts his Shellder as an entity required for evolution.

- Rock Steady: Part Rock type.
- [[An Ice Person: Ice type.
Joy the Audino (male)
- Healing Factor: Has Regenerator for an Ability.
- Extra-ore-dinary: Steel type
An apathetic trainer with no personality to speak of.
- Affectionate Nickname: Tagg refers to her as "little bird" due to both her Fletchinder mon form and Channah also being much shorter than he is.
- Ambiguous Disorder:
- Is implied to have depression, which she appears to be taking medication for, but it isn't stated in-story.
- She also tells Tagg that she has problems feeling things, which may also be a symptom of depression or some other disorder.
- Angst? What Angst?: Played straight and/or justified by her implied depression and issues feeling things, especially during the talk with Tagg at her house.
- Badass Decay: Has been sliding into this more or less indifferently since quitting the Ace Trainer life.
- Berserk Button: Messing with her mind and turning her pink. The former is also revealed to be a Trauma Button because telepathy being used on her reminds her of her old Espeon Hale, who was killed.

- Characterization Marches On: Started out more like her writer but got flanderized after a while.

- Competition Freak: It's been stomped almost to death, but is all that remains of her old self.
- Dull Surprise: Channah rarely emotes, even when surprised.
- Female Misogynist: Downplayed in that it's more that she doesn't understand other women as opposed to outright hating them, but Channah has a bad case of internalized misogyny as a result of wanting to be taken more seriously in the male-dominated training circuits she ran through back when she was younger, and picking up on how they tended to treat women.
- Hates Being Touched: Dislikes being touched or touching other people.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: She's 5'0" compared to the 6'3" Tagg.
- The Knights Who Say "Squee!": Obsessed with Steven Stone, which is one of the few things she'll actually emote about.
- The Lad-ette: Invoked, she purposely affects the bearings of a fratbro in conversation.
- Loser Protagonist: She has never seen anything major to completion, and misses a lot of opportunities to better herself.
- No Social Skills: Makes conversations deeply cringe-y just by showing up to them, at times even inadvertently insulting people, due to a mix of carelessness and what might be an Ambiguous Disorder. Her name means "grace", ironically.
- Official Couple: Her and Tagg pair up as part of the latter's polycule.
- Our Werebeasts Are Different: Following an encounter with Mew Prime, she's become a were-Fletchinder.
- Parental Abandonment: Her Mindscape reveals that she has issues regarding the fact that her birth mother gave her up, though considering the fact that she happened to be part of an evil cult, that may have ultimately been a blessing in disguise considering what happened with her twin.
- Performance Anxiety: Part of what caused her to forfeit her Champion battle. Shes since largely gotten past this via The Power of Apathy.
- Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes down past her waist.
- Safety in Indifference: Tries to avoid caring through a mask of apathy. Tagg outright accuses her cynicism aspect, Truth, of hiding her feelings behind a mask of apathy so she can't get hurt again.

- Verbal Tic: "Ehhh", "Nah", and every verbal pause under the sun.

A young trainer from Twinleaf Town in Sinnoh.
- Bad Liar: Crewe is noted to be a horrible liar.
- Barrier Warrior: After her encounter with Isolde in Mt. Ohmeg, Crewe gained the ability to form Obscura barriers, whereas formerly Obscura tended to explode in her face whenever she tried to use it. This separates her from the majority of Aurics in the RP, whose powers tend to focus more on the offensive side of their abilities.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Herbert.
- Berserk Button: Hurt anyone she considers her "pack" (or threaten to hurt them, or look at them funny...) and she will not hesitate to stab you.
- Blind Without 'Em: Crewe has very poor vision without her glasses, in fact it was the main reason that Mew decided to have pity on her and make her human.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: In Orre, Crewe is Snagged and Shadowed by Cipher.
- Brats with Slingshots: Is often seen using the slingshot she made in Oblivia; in the AU, she complains because she's completely unarmed until she finds another slingshot on the Resistance sub.

- Meganekko: Wears glasses as a human.
- Morphic Resonance: Crewe is often described as looking a lot like a Sneasel even while in human form.
- My Greatest Failure: So many of her mons leaving her due to Crewe not being the best trainer when it came to to the more emotional aspects of Pokémon training.
- Official Couple: With Jab, before ending up with Straw.
- Shapeshifter: Turns out to be a Sneasel that was transformed into a human by a Mew. This was done to save her life, as her vision issues would've almost certainly caused her death in the wild. According to Word of God Crewe's human body is actually based on what a potential child of her human parents would've looked like had they been able to have kids, in order to better complete the illusion.
- Tomboy: Crewe has a hatred for most if not all stereotypically girly things.
- Transformation Trinket: Has a Moon Stone pendant that allows her to switch between human and Sneasel form at will.
- Teleporters and Transporters: Following her purification Crewe gains Teleport as a purification move.

- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Vierr, as they constantly snipe at one another but are close friends anyway.
- Working with the Ex: Teams up with Jab to infiltrate the Holon Institute.
Clockwise the Noctowl
- Cloudcuckoolander: His default state, unless he's angry or confused.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Clockwise usually acts pretty crazy and out of it, but harm anyone on the team (or confuse him), and he becomes scarily competent.
- Papa Wolf: Threaten or hurt any member of his team, or his daughter Likewise, and Clockwise will hurt you.
Biton the Sneasel
- Big Brother Instinct: He is Crewe's oldest brother, and tends to treat her like a baby. Falls more under the "condescending" type.
- The Rival: To Gogie.
Beedrill the Fan Rotom
- Played by: Crowlover
First Appearance: Page 7511
- Beware the Nice Ones: While normally nice, when confronted with Verax during the climax of the Orre arc Crow planned on making him feel the pain of everyone he's ever hurt as revenge.
- Catchphrase: "[Interesting]* "
- Double Agent: Sort of. Crow was working for both Titan while being a member of the J-Team, trying to get the former to stop his plans while trying to get the latter to not oppose them directly. He quit after Titan's HeelFace Turn.
- The Empath: Due to being a Heart of Gold.
- Giver of Lame Names: Is acknowledged as such in-universe.
- Honor Before Reason: Crow's aversion to stealing caused him to be unwilling to snag Crewe from Odin when Titan ordered him to do so, even though he was unsure of any other way to accomplish it.
- Horrible Judge of Character: Was initially friendly towards Iulianus, Verax, and Tornadus and Thundurus before figuring out their intentions. Tagg ends up getting particularly pissed off at him for trusting Verax in particular since it ended up revealing J-Team secrets.
- I Have Many Names: Has gone by Crow, Albert, Triton, Beta, and Sholto, each in different circumstances.
- Internal Reformist: Closest to Type 1 for Neo-Galactic, hoping to convince Titan to change it's goal toward better means though he abandoned this after Titan was overthrown.

- Theme Naming: The Pokemon he caught in the Kalos Arc are named after characters from Worm, though this in unintentional in-Universe.
- Voice Changeling: Crow learned the ability to copy other's voices from Merle, but is unable to do so for female voices.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Dyed his hair turquoise while working for Titan. Switched back to his natural color after leaving Neo-Galactic.
Gogie (Male Mightyena)
- Bi the Way: Aside from Morrigan, he kissed Biton once. And later said he liked Bishop, even if they both decided to ignore it after.
- Dogged Nice Guy: To Morrigan. Unfortunately, she already had Belial.
- Playing with Fire: Knows Fire Fang and used it to start a fire on Route 35 and the Burned Tower.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Due to an incident with a huggy Conkeldurr, Gogie is quite afraid of Fighting-types in general, though is trying to work on at least being able to socialize with the ones he wants to.

- Interspecies Romance: With Venomous, Crow's Venomoth.
Glöckchen (Female Abomasnow)

Finn (Male Garchomp)
- Insistent Terminology: Refers to himself as a mole rather than a dragon and insists others do as well.
Irrendolch (Male Accelgor)
- "Blind Idiot" Translation: Speaks as if literally translated from German, though most idioms are preserved

- Green-Eyed Monster: Got jealous in the Hoenn-2 arc when Fishy seemed to be getting more attention than him.
Jolly (Female Wingull)
- The Eeyore: Despite her name, is often pessimistic.
Sundancer (Female Talonflame)
Dune, a.k.a. Derek Morton, is an explorer and aspiring archaeologist from Orre. He first found the J-Team in Humilau City during the Dream Rift Crisis, and has been following the group ever since.
- Adventurer Archaeologist: What he aspires to be.
- Adventurer Outfit: Of the "Archaeologist" variety, of course.
- Badass Normal: Has absolutely no Auric abilities as well as no Attribute. Only his fists, adrenaline, and training kept him from being killed by Verax during an ambush.
- Big, Screwed-Up Family: Dune's mother and father are rain and sun trainers that had a messy divorce and tend to fight whenever they see eachother. This combined with their shared disapproval for Dune's life choices has lead him to avoid them whenever possible.
- Cornered Rattlesnake: While Dune is no slouch in combat, he is extremely sensitive to "do or die" situations and can become extremely strong and fast when backed into a corner.
- Goggles Do Something Unusual: Wears a pair of custom Go-Goggles, which protect his eyes from everything from sandstorms to cold rain to dirt getting thrown in his eyes.
- Heir to the Dojo: Dune is so far the only living practitioner of his ancestor's ancient martial art, the Hagane no Tsume.
- Muggle Born of Mages: His mother is a confirmed Auric, yet he has no potential of his own.
- Official Couple: With Galvani
- Protectorate: Aline
- Solomon Divorce: He went to live with their father, his little sister lived with their mother. A retroactive case of Real Life Writes the Plot.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Dune has a dislike for scorpion Pokemon like Gligar and Scorupi. He is also somewhat nervous around the Houndour line after an incident with Dawg while he was a Drilbur.
- All Theories Are True: In her eyes, they are. It might explain the fact that some of her inventions seem to view the laws of physics more as kindly-worded suggestions.
- Blind Without 'Em: Has a pair of large glasses in her human form. Her eyesight is 20/50, making her almost legally blind without them and some slight astigmatism in her left eye prevents her from wearing contacts.
- Creating Life Is Awesome: At least, when the life you make is a miniature version of Optimus Prime, it's awesome.
- Cuteness Proximity: Towards Aline.
- Determinator: Even though she was brand new to her human form and couldn't fight, she still followed Dune through a raid on a Cipher facility as a human.
- Emphasize EVERYTHING: When she starts channeling her inner Spark, she starts speaking as if the whole WORLD WERE LISTENING!
- For Science!: Galvani has a thing for wanting to make things work, even if they work in ways they really shouldn't.
- Gadgeteer Genius: She's constantly improving on her more mundane devices, such as a customized Gameboy and Dune's hoverbike.
- Hot Scientist: Dune thinks so, anyway.
- Mad Scientist: Taking inspiration from Girl Genius (she even looks like Agatha Heterodyne) and Genius: The Transgression.
- No Plans, No Prototype, No Backup: A flaw in Galvani's method is that her creative benders are almost impossible to replicate.
- Science-Related Memetic Disorder: Has occasional bouts of inspiration that result in all-night benders that inevitably result in some device or another that may or may not break certain laws of physics.
- Unsettling Gender Reveal: Turns out to be female after putting on an armband. Needless to say, it took Dune a while to get used to the fact that his starter, whom he referred to as masculine his entire life, was a dead ringer for Agatha Heterodyne.
Garuda (Male Sigilyph)
- Deadpan Snarker: Having a voice that barely registers emotions certainly lends itself to this.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: Has sworn himself to Dune's service. Exactly how far this goes has not been tested.
Rill (Male Swampert)
- Only Sane Man: He's constantly having to deal with all of the different things that Dune's team, especially Galvani, get into.
Big Dom (Golurk)
- Good Old Fisticuffs: Being an Iron Fist Golurk, it only comes naturally.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: Similar to Garuda, but for different reason.
- Protectorate: Everybody close to him.
- Super Robot: Almost everything about him is a Shout-Out to one Mecha franchise or another.
Selene (Female Clefable)
- Bi the Way: According to Word of God.
- Big Eater: Especially if it involves something sugary.
- Team Mom: Is very motherly to everyone on the team, especially younger Pokemon.
Ajax (Male Tyranitar)
- Bi the Way: According to Word of God.
- My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Absolutely despises how Tyranitar are viewed as mindless brutes.
- Gentle Giant: And proud of it.
- Stop Being Stereotypical: Has actually verbally assaulted a Tyranitar he caught working for Cipher, driving it to tears.
Cun Annwn (Male Stoutland)
- Genre Savvy: Having watched many, many, many Sentai and Super Robot series, Cun can give eerily accurate predictions about future events involving team members, and can identify tropes by name.
- I Just Want to Be Special: Despite being a normal Lillipup from Castelia, Cun still tries to be the best hero he can be. He's even an unconfirmed Soul of Silver.
Hildr (Female Delta Donphan)
- Daddy's Girl: Despite knowing that Dune is not in fact her father, she still treats him as such. This has been toned down after her evolution into a Donphan.
Flanagan (Male Krookodile)
- Berserk Button: His ability is Anger Point; getting hit by a critical activates it and sends him into a frothing rage.
- Born Lucky: Claims to be this when it comes to winning bets.
Zeus (Male Stunfisk)
- A God I Am: Sees himself as a god amongst mortals, which is pretty much just bluster.
- Put on a Bus: After realizing just how much trouble he was going to be, Dune boxed him for the longest time, even after the rest of his mons joined him on a more permanent basis.
Champloo (Male Lucario)
- Fourth-Wall Observer: Much like his namesake, the Fourth Wall is more a suggestion than anything else.
- Shout-Out: To Mr. Champloo from Disgaea 3.
- Supreme Chef: His brownies are so good they will reduce a Shadow Pokemon's shadow gauge.
- Training from Hell: The training he does with Dune.
Vega (Male Excadrill)
- Played by: Eskay 64
Eskay is a trainer from Ecruteak who makes it a point to be kind to everyone he meets. He first found out about the J-Team when he found out Umbra fought an Obscura wizard with some other members. In Hoenn-2, he and his gender-swapped identity as Sarah split and became completely separate individuals.
- A-Cup Angst/Petite Pride: As Sarah, she's not exactly well-endowed. She alternates between being perfectly fine with this fact, and wishing she was a little bit more.
- Achey Scars: A massive scar on his chest, originating from a Toxicroak that very nearly killed him, and worsened by being impaled within Psyche's mindscape, and has damaged some of his heart tissue.
- Attractive Bent-Gender: According to Lucius and Pentigan. Goes by "Sarah" in this state. Eventually splits into Eskay and a completely separate Sarah
- Author Avatar: Of his writer, although gradually less so over time.
- Badass Longcoat: Is always wearing a longcoat. Averted with Sarah, as a point of differentiating herself from Eskay.
- Bi the Way: Used to date Psyche, and now is more or less smitten with Lucius.
- Disappeared Dad: Left when he was 3 years old and has only recently come back into his life.
- Hair Decorations: Disguises a Rainbow Wing as one, as worn by Sarah.
- Hat Damage: His fedora has a long slit in the side due to a Noodle Incident while training Skye.
- Heart Trauma: After his Toxicroak-induced chest injury and later, impalement within Psyche's mindscape, he became much more fearful of being in the midst of action, due to a very real risk of heart attack.
- Heroic BSoD: After killing Deimos. The Orre arc in general left him with a case of PTSD.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: With the Transistor in Psyche's mindscape
- Literal Split Personality: In the Hoenn-2 arc, where he and Sarah became entirely and permanently separate individuals.
- Missing Mom: She died when Eskay was 10 years old but came back six years later as a Delta Golurk.
- Nice Hat: A black fedora.
- Official Couple: With Psyche following their Sleep Cute. Broke up with her later on, though.
- Older Than They Look: A family trait, due to being descended from Lina — they look a couple years younger than they actually are, although not quite to the degree of their mother.
- Purple Eyes: Amethyst-purple, a quality he got due to being born in Ecruteak.
- Sarashi: Wears one to protect the scar. After Noir transforms Sarah's Pokeform into Croagunk, she uses "Sarashi" as her name.
- Scars Are Forever: His Toxicroak-induced scar, which is far too massive to ever truly fade; he only survived in the first place through a Legendary-given miracle.
- Unfazed Everyman: Became this after a complete annihilation of the Fourth Wall, as supplied by Spectrum. Was finally fazed again by Herbert when he decided to try joining PEFE.
- Wholesome Crossdresser: Not against wearing a dress, even as Eskay.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Has a crippling fear of the Croagunk line due to a Toxicroak killing his mother in his presence. He started to get over it, but it was renewed fully when another Toxicroak almost killed him in the same way. Has mostly recovered from it as of Hoenn-2. Sarah is completely recovered.
- Your Mind Makes It Real: Although she managed to survive it, Sarah's impalement in Psyche's mindscape made their already-large scar even more noticeable and even more painful.
Skye (Female Skarmory)
- Fangirl: Of Luke and Lake.
- If It's You, It's Okay: Although she is for the most part solidly lesbian, she did have a hint of a crush on Lake.
- Interspecies Romance: With Diane, made reasonable through use of armbands.
- Like Brother and Sister: Being Eskay's starter, she shares an incredibly close bond with him. It's revealed during the Holon arc that they're actually cousins due to an ancestor of Skye's, Alice Amarin, being turned into a Skarmory.
- Official Couple: With Diane.
Jazz (Shiny Female Arbok)
- Deadpan Snarker: Always has a sarcastic quip.
Wilbur (Male Grumpig)
- Medium Awareness: His pearl opens him up to the fourth wall, much to his dismay.
Spectrum (Female Flygon)
- Heroic BSoD: Upon finding out she lost her voice when she evolved
- Meaningful Name: She speaks in colors of the visible light spectrum.
- Medium Awareness: She and other mons notice that she spoke in different colors depending on the situation as a Trapinch, but are unsure of how to describe it.
Doopliss (Masculine Ditto)
- Expy: Of his namesake.
- Genre Savvy: During the Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Whole Plot Reference subarc, he jumped in and convinced the Doopliss that existed there to fulfill the plot itself to change his methods, all in order to screw with the protagonist group who were expecting things to go like the game.
- Medium Awareness: Is quite fond of vandalizing the Fourth Wall.
- Troll: Enjoys putting others through frustrating shenanigans for the hell of it.
Smuglord (Male Serperior)

MGMT (Male Eelektross)
- Shout-Out: To the band of the same name
- Left the Background Music On: Can only sing due to an accident involving an iPhokex.
- Shock and Awe: Is Electric-type.
- Running Gag:
- People or Pokemon referring to MGMT as an "Overpowered Jukebox"
- Trolling Riptide and other "serious" characters
- Troll: As mentioned above, he enjoys irritating more "serious" characters.
Oscar (Male Garbodor)
Cassius (Male Bisharp)

- Played by: etran12
A Twenty year old wandering trainer who went on a journey to improve both his skills in battle, and his social skills.
- No Social Skills: Used to be this way, but is gradually learning the more he interacts with others.
A random Trainer from Nimbasa who ran into various members of the group during the Gold Conference and is now traveling with them. Since joining the group, they have met legendaries, patted a disguised Entei on the head, been turned into a Dunsparce, been sucked into an alternate timeline, and fallen in love, on top of discovering their non-binaryness.
- An Arm and a Leg: Loses their left arm during the Alola arc when a Kartana slices it off as they, Amanita, and Brie retreat from a Poni Island cave filled with them.
- The Apprentice: Is currently Tagg's.
- Badass Boast: When Zrone comes to try taking PEFE!Every away, Ever lists all the times that people have tried to kill them and they ended up killing them instead. While Zrone doesn't buy it and states later that had PEFE!Every not been there he would've tried killing them simply to piss off Tagg instead of leaving, he also admits it was still a gutsy move.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Is generally friendly and at least reasonably pleasant...and can scare a Crobat into defection with a glare, and doesn't take threats against his girlfriend Mezzo well.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Ever acts silly a lot of the time but is actually an extremely competent trainer and can be very ruthless in dealing with their enemies.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Tokarev puts Every under mind control during Orre using a ring placed around their head.
- Broke Your Arm Punching Out Cthulhu: Ever managed to kill Muninn with Skarmory feathers, but they literally broke a lot of his upper body's bones to do so.
- Death Glare: Pretty much their signature move as a Dunsparce. Carried over a bit as a human.
- Headbutting Heroes: Does not get along with Amanita especially well at first, and the feeling's mutual.
- Identical Stranger: Meets a PEFE employee who looks exactly like them a few times. Turns out that's because they're both descendants of Revy.
- Idiot Hair: Zizagged. Has an ahoge, though Ever is not particularly stupid, naive, or mischievous starting out. They do get more strange as the story goes on though.
- Irony: Despite Ever's love of Ghost-types, he's quite afraid of death, physical or otherwise.
- Meaningful Rename: Changes their name from Every to Ever in order to prevent enemies of the J-Team and people like All from easily finding them.
- Official Couple: With Mezzo.
- Ship Tease: With Mezzo during the early AU, before becoming an Official Couple.
- Significant Wardrobe Shift: Following their name change from Every during the aftermath of the Orre arc, Ever dyes their hair and starts wearing all blue.
- Major Injury Underreaction: After getting their arm cut off they seem more worried about the phone their left hand was holding than their unwanted limb amputation.
- No Pronunciation Guide: His surname is pronounced "Me-my-toe".
- Not So D Ifferent: Has a similar issue to their mentor Tagg regarding being open with their feelings.
- The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body: Was absolutely awful at resisting instincts during their time as a Dunsparce, and tended to burrow underground at the first sign of danger.
- Took a Level in Badass: Went from merely an average trainer to one that managed to beat the Unova League and take on Tagg as an equal over the course of the two year period between the GC and Unova-2.
- Unfazed Everyman: Was actually pretty fazed at first, but eventually got used to it.
- Uneven Hybrid: It's revealed during the Entralink Arc that they, PEFE!Every, and All are all descended from Revy having a nonconsensual moment with Tapu Lele when he raided Akala centuries ago, so they all have Semi-Divine fairy blood.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Is terrified of Ariados after nearly being killed by a swarm of them while starting out.
In the AU arc:
Tropes that apply to the whole team:
- Barrier Warrior: They all know Protect.
- Battle in the Rain: Invoked, every one knows Rain Dance.
- Weak, but Skilled: Most of them lack the raw firepower their trainer's mentor Tagg's mons have at their disposal, so they focus more on outsmarting their opponents instead.
Diesel (Male Kricketune)
Every's first Pokemon, Diesel is far more powerful than his small size would suggest. He has a surprising range of attacks at his disposal, and is quite fond of putting opponents to sleep. Diesel is also completely obsessed with music, and has formed a band out of Every's Pokemon. Consequently, he strictly disallows Every from capturing any mon that can't create music somehow. Whereabouts in the AU are unknown.
- Berserk Button: Do NOT insult his music.
- Big Creepy-Crawlies
- Blade Below the Shoulder: Has blades for arms.

Breeze (Male Chimecho)
A Chimecho caught as a Chingling, Breeze is one of the longer-standing members of Every's team. Despite his general childishness, Breeze is far smarter than he looks, and is a competent battler. Evolved to save Every's life when Every was bitten by an Ariados. Whereabouts in the AU are unknown.

- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Usually acts like a small child, but appears to be one of the more powerful members of Every's team.

- Psychic Powers
- Running Gag: Wondering or commenting on why Every can't fly.
Fade (Female Drifblim)
Fade was caught as a Drifloon by Valley Windworks when Every wanted a Ghost-type on his team, and Drifblim also appealed as a flier. However, Fade's efficiency as a flier is somewhat debatable, being as she usually drops Every from a few feet higher than is perhaps safe. Undead in the AU.
- Emotion Eater: Specifically fear.
- The Quiet One: And a Terse Talker when she does speak.
- Troll: She feeds on fear, and has no qualms about inspiring it through (sometimes quite nasty) pranks.
Slam (Male Quagsire)
A rather lazy Quagsire, that Every caught as a Wooper. Takes a while to register most things, including pain, but seems to be a fairly powerful battler. Every uses him for surfing, despite the fact that Slam has been outsped by passing Magikarp. Dead in the AU.
A Toxicroak that was caught as a Croagunk. Toxicroak is violent, rude, and altogether not a nice mon to be around, especially if you might look like food. Whereabouts in the AU are unknown.
A Bronzor caught during the GC, Gyru quickly established an utter contempt for all things organic, and an absolute belief in its own superiority. Evolved into a Bronzong during a battle against a murder of Murkrow. Whereabouts in the AU are unknown.
- Everything's Better with Spinning
- Fantastic Racism: Gyru hates organic mons.
- Psychic Powers
- No Biological Sex: And has no respect for anything that doesn't share this trait.
Salamence (Female Altaria)
A fairly young Altaria that Every caught during the GC. She's friendly, happy to meet new people or Pokemon, and is an absolute Salamence fangirl, to the point of falling in love with one.. Is good friends with Breeze and T (an Unown T that follows Every around), and has declared herself unofficial aunt to Shahinne, Silent's Starly. Whereabouts in the AU are unknown.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Well, she is a cloud.
- Genki Girl
- Hammer Space: Her wings can apparently hide both Shahinne and Zubat well enough for them to play hide-and-seek.
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: Is a Salamence fan (hence her name) and refuses to hear a word against them. Somewhat justified in that she's quite young.
- Our Dragons Are Different: After evolving during the battle with Nihilist!Tagg.
Jab (Male Weavile)
Jab was caught completely by accident, when he tripped over an Ultra Ball and caught himself. He's only been on Every's team for a short time, so not much is known about him yet, but he seems to be quite active and fond of picking fights.
- An Ice Person
- Casting a Shadow
- Fragile Speedster: Jab appears to be quite quick and agile, but he can't take a hit to save his life.

- Combat Pragmatist
- Dishing Out Dirt
- Foil: To Salamence. While Salamence is friendly and frequently has her head in the clouds, Marmalade is more down to earth and tends towards snarkiness. They both like kids though.
- Lightning Bruiser
- Older Than They Look: Despite looking fairly young, she's probably among Every's older mons.
- Our Dragons Are Different
Cirrus (Male Golbat)
- Nature: Quirky.Ability: Inner Focus.Met: Aqua Headquarters in Fallarbor (Zubat).Favorite Move:
Air CutterDragon Rage.
Cirrus is a Golbat whom Every received during a stint as a Team Aqua member. Zubat is somewhat odd, apparently believing himself to be a Dragonair. He seems nice though. Cirrus is no longer a member of Every's team, due to leaving after Every quit Team Aqua.
- Bat Out of Hell
- Cloudcuckoolander: Yeah. He's pretty normal aside from his illusions of Dragonair-ness though.
- Poisonous Pokemon
Drift (Male Jellicent)
Drift's egg was received from Fool as a Christmas present. Drift is quite young, and is only just learning to speak, so his personality is largely unknown.

- Intangible Mon

- Straight Gay: Is in a relationship with Butterscotch.

T (Unown T)
T is an Unown T of Unown origin, who spontaneously appeared in Jubilife City, and was befriended by Breeze. Has been tagging along with Every since then. T seems to put up with just about anything (Although it will occasionally question the sensibility of an action), and generally remains cheerful. Was in Every's narrative stream for a while during the AU, before leaving to do other things.
Note: T is not actually one of Every's mons. It is just a tagalong.
- Played by: Pipping Fool
Fool is a vaguely 20/21 year old girl hailing from the Pinwheel Forest of Unova. Raised by the local Simipour tribe, Fool never really became an official Pokemon trainer until she met the group in Unova. She is spunky and full of energy and a surprisingly good commander when the situation rises, as was the example of when she came up with a plan to attack the Sky Fortress in Oblivia. Despite her cheery nature, she does have Cute and Psycho tendencies. Her real name is Solana Malkewitz and she was born in Dewford town in Hoenn. The circumstances that lead to her parents death in the Pinwheel Forest are rather vague.. Notable events include taking down the Sky Fortress in Oblivia, tieing with Tagg ins the GC arc and eventually becoming the Big Bad in the Orange Islands Arc. Fool is currently working at the PEFE as a researcher.
In the AU timeline, she wasn't as nice at first. A rather cruel and cold maiden who worked for Scolemis and had a Propoganda General in her ownership that would later become a very important character. After regaining her memories, she tries to help the situation by helping taking down Lanius. After the battle agaisnt Cyrus, she goes back to her home in Hoenn and lives for her parents before going back to Unova for a short time. She is then ratted out, chased back to Hoenn, captured, and hanged in Unova. She was a Banette but won her full life back after taking on all the Midori Room Pokemon in a specialized Spirit Game.

- Cool Big Sis: Takes a sort of motherly attitude towards some of the other J-Team members, especially Vierr.

An expert Pokémon Trainer that has been into Pokémon battling for a living since he was a child.
- Adorkable: Has shades of this, especially when happy, like after snagging Regina back, or awkward, such as when around Hikari.
- All Love Is Unrequited: This is what happens every time he falls in love. Eventually he just stopped looking for it. Eventually subverted by Hikari.
- Awesomeness by Analysis: How he got his moniker, "The Pokémon Genius", he can quickly figure out how something works, and how people work from their actions, and used this to effectively plan out Batman Gambits mid-battle. After Elityria died, the trauma caused him to lose the ability to do this. As he's recovered he's gotten back into this, such as when he identified how Leng's Tsubame Gaeshi worked and a way to counter it after seeing it once.
- Badass Normal: The only thing remotely special about him is that he can understand Pokémon speech, but other than that, he's very good at Pokémon battles having fought three or four every day for about five years, and more than capable of holding his own when needed, able to wield a sword with frightening skill with minimal training. In a practice spar with Tagg he even manages to draw with him.

- Comically Serious: Has shades of this from time to time.
- Death Glare: Fond of giving these when he starts getting mad, and can glare hard enough to occasionally freeze water over.
- Determinator: Explained by himself, given a reason or if his friends or people he cares about on the line, short of death he will stop at nothing and never stop until he succeeds. Lampshaded by RedEyes!Zeal in their Mindscape battle, he's still trying to fight after being disarmed, impaled by several dozen swords, and bleeding out, and laughs, mocking that he doesn't have any more free space to be stabbed.
- Dual Wielding: Duel wields two black and white blades known as Kanshou and Bakuya. It's the most natural style for him, so natural in fact that whenever he went from one sword to dual wielding mid-combat, he was immediately more effective, such as in the battle against RedEyes!Zeal or in his own Mindscape.
- Friendly Rival: Seems to have this kind of relationship with Sakura at first, but actually plays this more straight with Eskay.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Is able to make very interesting gadgets and apps for his laptop, such as developing a battle simulator to test his chances of beating certain tough opponents, to building Herbert a holographic arm-mounted PC for Christmas.

- My Greatest Failure: Considers his failure to prevent his friend Cosette from being raped and Trinity's near-death to be this.
- Official Couple: With Hikari.
- Scars Are Forever: Has an X-shaped scar after getting slashed by Red Eyes!Zeal during Unova-2.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Several incidences, mostly towards his introduction by virtue of being unstable. See below.

Locke, who is called Argent as a codename, due to his silver eyes and being from Canalave City, is a 19 year old detective working for the International Police. When he was 15, his parents were killed by a member of Team Galactic known as Wesker The Whisperer, who burned their house down with them still inside. His mother had pushed him out just in time, while they died in the flames. He has wowed to become strong enough to avenge his parents, and bring Wesker to justice, once and for all.
- Adorkable: He has some trouble interacting with other people, and, despite being 19, is still a fan of, and watches, shows like Proteam Omega, Prism Rangers, Scooby-Doom, and Wonder Fighters movies. He also plays games such as Anima, Sonic the Sandslash and Grasswhistle of the Eons.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: On the receiving end of a brutal one, by Wesker, when he first sees him in Kalos, 4 years after his parent's murder.
- Can't Catch Up: To Wesker, currently trying to fix that.
- Closet Geek: He prefers not to discuss his hobbies with strangers or acquaintances, and keeps a serious, on the job demeanor when around people besides friends, usually. Seems to be getting out of it by the point he meets Robin, who he engages in a lampshaded Jo Jos Bizzare Adventure type of battle.
- Gray Eyes: Silver, actually.
- Heroic BSoD: After the Curb-Stomp Battle.
- Nice Guy: Besides his utter hatred of Wesker, he's an okay guy, going from one city to another just find a family heirloom of a little old lady, and frequently treats people to all you-can-eat meals, him paying.
- Talking with Signs: Communicates with his Pokemon by having them write down what they want to say on a notepad he carries around, and he replies to them.(Usually not with Mirror as he can the two of them can just communicate telepathically.)
- Tragic Keepsake: His locket, it houses the only photos of him and his parents that he has, as they were almost all burnt in the fire at his house.
- Villain Takes an Interest: Wesker did, after their battle.
- Waistcoat of Style: Likes wearing these.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Is pyrophobic, he paralyses in fear and memories when he sees a blaze of fire, which makes being around Denise uncomfortable for him.
Axel The SwampertLocke's first Pokemon. The fun-loving goofball of the team.
- Big Fun: As a Swampert, he's naturally fairly big.
- The Big Guy
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: While he may seem to be a fool, he's the most experienced of the team and is a strong battler.
- Dishing Out Dirt: Secondary Type.
- The Heart: He's the emotional center of the team, and often makes it his job to make others feel better.
- Making a Splash: Primary type.
Geo the LucarioLocke's honorable Lucario. Usually wears a bowtie.
- Action Initiative: Part Fighting type.
- Determinator: Has access to the move Endure, which makes him this. Being one of two Pokemon to come out still conscious after the Curb-Stomp Battle against Wesker, and then holding on to his Gallade through a teleport jump is also an example.

- Honor Before Reason: Fittingly, his ability is Justified.
- Kamehame Hadoken: His Aura Sphere is depicted as this.
- Noble Wolf
Mirror the BronzongThe only normal one, despite being a floating Totem.

- Blood Knight: Loves fighting.
- The Lad-ette
- Playing with Fire

A 17 year old trainer (15 at his debut) born and raised in Eterna City, Sinnoh, who met the group in Virbank City. His father was a Team Galactic commander who disappeared a week before the events at Spear Pillar, and his goal ever since has been to find him and bring him to justice. Lucius is an antisocial loner with severe trust issues and a vicious mean streak - and yet to those few he manages to befriend, he shows a much softer and more vulnerable side. Since joining the J-Team, he has starred in a movie, started to learn how to use Aura, taken command of an army of Pawniard, and gotten roped into a love triangle.
Mid-way through the Kalos arc, he decided to leave the J-Team and travel solo with his close friend Alice. He returned during Ranger-2, having taken up the Batman-esqe alter-ego of "the Auric Avenger". He was mostly known as Herbert prior to Ranger-2.
- Adorkable: According to Carol.
- Affectionate Nickname: Carol (amongst others) calls him "Herby".
- Always Someone Better: Amongst his many insecurities is a crippling inferiority complex, which causes him to view nearly everyone else as this.
- Arch-Enemy: Alexiel, though he just sees Lucius as an annoyance.
- Apologises a Lot: When he's not being a massive Jerkass.
- Bad Liar: You don't need to be a Heart of Gold to tell if he's lying or not. Tagg even describes him as almost as bad at lying as Crewe.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Crewe.
- Berserk Button: Don't call him short. See Insistent Terminology below.
- Boxing Lessons for Superman: Prior to Ranger-2, he goes through martial training with Alice, who teaches him to rely less on Aura and more on mundane combat skills in order to combat the increasing number of Illusion and Neo-Galactic members with Aura Jammers.
- Butt-Monkey: To be fair, though, most of the time he deserves it. Most of the time.
- Byronic Hero: Played with to some extent. He's certainly dark and brooding, with both strong personal convictions that often run contrary to the majority and a troubled past. However, he's less "handsome, intelligent and cunning" and more "scrawny, headstrong and impulsive". In addition, whilst plots involving him are usually dramatic, he's not above moments of levity.
- Casanova Wannabe: If it's female and human, Lucius will attempt to flirt with it. This leads to a Never Live It Down moment when he tries to flirt with a genderbent Eskay.
- Chick Magnet: Despite his poor flirting record Carol, Crewe, Samantha, Alice, and Sarah have all had feelings for him at some point.
- The Cowl: As the Auric Avenger, in contrast to Shingeko's Cape.
- Deadpan Snarker: Both he and Tagg spend a lot of time snarking at whatever they encounter in their adventures.
- Determinator: Developed into this over time. Lucius is simply too stubborn to quit, no matter what he goes through or how much punishment he takes.
- Determined Defeatist: Lucius is a firm pessimist, and yet his stubbornness drives him to keep fighting even in the face of overwhelming odds.
- Discard and Draw: After getting revived he loses his Aura powers, but gains Ghost Obscuric abilities as a result of his new body.
- Do Not Call Me "Paul": He mostly went by Herbert, for reasons he kept to himself. After Kalos he decides to start going by Lucius again.
- The Empath: A novice Auric, though just because he's able to read people's emotional state doesn't mean he pays any attention to it.
- Expecting Someone Taller: Inverted when Sarah meets Lucius again in Fiore when it turns out he's managed to grow a few inches in the interim.
- Hates Being Touched: Downplayed. Lucius never enjoyed physical contact and rarely initiated it himself, but never reacted adversely to it. Then Orre rolled around, and he developed a crippling fear of being touched by anyone, Duke in particular. He's begun to overcome this phobia, however.
- I Have Many Names: Has four real names, one personal alias, and no less than five separate nicknames of various quality.
- Heroes Want Redheads: Had some sort of relationship with Alice in the past, and was in one with Samantha.
- Innocent Bigot: As a result of being raised by a Team Galactic commander, he had some rather... backwards views about Pokemon. He wasn't as bad as Galactic are, but he didn't see Pokemon as anything more than intelligent but still inferior animals and the concept of a human/Pokemon relationship utterly revolted him. This got him a vicious ass-whooping at the hands of Diane. Eventually he learns to become more accepting of Pokemon as sentient creatures.
- Insistent Terminology: He's "vertically challenged" regarding his shortness.
- Insult of Endearment: Crewe's mocking appellation of "fruitcake" comes to be used in a more affectionate context over time.
- It's Personal: He considers his vendetta against Alexiel to be this. Alexiel, of course, doesn't consider him to be anything more than a particularly persistent nuisance.
- Jerkass: His stubbornness, tendency to hold grudges, and casually mean-spirited commentary even in the most inappropriate of situations doesn't win him many friends, yet Lucius can (usually) be called upon to do the right thing when it counts.
- Luminescent Blush: Whenever he is embarrassed in front of a girl. Which is pretty much always.
- Knight In Sour Armor: Like Tagg has has a rather cynical view of the world, but still fights to protect the helpless anyway.
- Official Couple: With Samantha, until their breakup. Their relationship was hardly as straight an example as most couples in the RP, however; having a girlfriend doesn't make him any less afraid of long-term commitment, and whilst he genuinely cares for Samantha, he still has difficulties keeping his feelings for other girls in check.
- Open Mouth, Insert Foot: He wouldn't get into half as many fights if he could just keep his mouth shut on occasion.
- Made of Iron: For a frail teenager, Lucius is ridiculously hard to kill. Justified during Okamiquest, however, as the Orange Locket provides him with a Healing Factor.
- Name of Cain: And just like IRL, having that name has given him nothing but trouble.
- Never Be Hurt Again: One of his driving motivations. After everything he went through in Orre, he's determined to prevent such a situation from ever occurring again.
- Not So Different: The similarities between him and a younger Tagg have not escaped notice.
- Principles Zealot: Samantha compares him to Rorschach because of his refusal to compromise his values under any circumstances.
- She Is Not My Girlfriend: Towards Carol, even though Everyone Can See It.
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With Tagg and Ammy at the beginning of Okamiquest, though they later all end up becoming Fire-Forged Friends. His friendship with Tagg collapses after the events of Orre, however.
- These Hands Have Killed: Experiences this after killing Edge, which causes a brief period of Heroic BSoD.
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: In contrast to Tagg, who doesn't have quite as many issues with killing. During the Okamiquest arc he becomes more of a Martial Pacifist.
- Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Samantha was nearly six inches taller than him when he first started dating her, though he's closed the gap somewhat since then.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Lyuri. Until Orre, where the "best buds" bit disappeared, and hard. Eventually the two repaired their friendship, though it took them the better part of a year to do so.
- Would Hit a Girl: Even when sparring with his own girlfriend, he shows no more restraint than he would against anybody else.
Tropes that apply to AU!Herbert:
Tropes that apply to the whole team:
Kirk (Male Lucario)
Kirk is Lucius' starter, and is rather more boisterous than most Lucario.
- Blood Knight: Never shies away from a fight.
- Boisterous Weakling: Downplayed. Kirk can actually fight, and is probably the second-strongest Pokemon on Lucius' team, but he can almost never back up his boasts about being able to beat everyone in the room.
- Characterization Marches On: Wasn't nearly as much of a Jerkass during his first appearances.
- Horrible Judge of Character: Inverted. Because of a misunderstanding, he believes the kind and emphatic Eskay is a murderer and is highly hostile towards him.
- Jack-of-All-Stats: In combat, though he occasionally slips into being a Master of None.
- Jerkass: Kirk can like his trainer often be a bit of an asshole, especially towards mons he considers annoying and weak such as Gogie.
- Put on a Bus: During the end of Holon and entirety of Orre.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Leaves Herbert's team due to a combination of feeling like he was being held back and Herbert seemingly dying.
- Sore Loser: Towards Seth after their first time facing each other.
- Those Two Guys: With Ripley.
In the AU, Kirk's belief in Pokemon supremacy led to him abandoning Herbert and joining Scolemis, indirectly leading to the former's death. After Scolemis collapsed, he signed up with the Seven Jerk Dragons instead, despite his non-draconic origins.
Tropes that apply to AU!Kirk:
- Blood Knight: Even more so than in the OU.
- Jerkass: Surprisingly enough, he actually comes off as less abrasive than his OU counterpart, though this may just be by the standards of the AU.
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Unlike his OU counterpart, however, he shows no signs of trying to improve his attitude - he's an unrepentant Blood Knight who abandoned his own trainer, has no qualms about serving a brutal and oppressive regime and is perfectly willing to betray his own allies for a chance at political advancement.
- Noble Demon
- Remember the New Guy?: A former Scolemis officer and a major player in the AUnova political scene... who just happened to have never shown up in the original AU arc.
Maul (Male Alakazam)
Maul was given to Lucius by his father. Though he is a capable telepath, he never speaks, except in cryptic half-sentences.
- Cryptic Conversation: He'd specialise in these, if he ever said more than one sentence at a time.
- Fragile Speedster: Fast, but he can't take many hits.
- The Gadfly: His purpose in life seems to be to confuse and annoy Herbert as much as possible.
- The Quiet One: Doesn't talk much.
- Scars Are Forever: Has a massive scar running across his chest, courtesy of Edge.
Ripley (Female Weavile)
Ripley was caught by Lucius near Snowpoint City, although she doesn't seem to like her trainer much and regards him as more of an annoyance than anything. Eventually traded to Joseph prior to Orre.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Mama Bear: She does care about Newt's well-being and hurting (or losing her in the case of Joseph) is a good way of earning her rage.
- Those Two Guys: With Kirk.
Newt (Female Sneasel)
Ripley and Rogue's eldest (and only) daughter, Newt was the product of what was supposed to be a one-night tryst in Lentimas. Despite technically being Lucius' Pokemon, she spent most of her time with Joseph before finally being officially traded to him.
- Deliberately Cute Child: She often utilizes her young age to help her charm potential con victims, with varying degrees of success.
- Little Miss Con Artist: A compulsive kleptomaniac.
- Little Miss Snarker: Shows shades of this.
Bishop (Male Scizor)
Bishop was a former Shadow Pokemon, found and rescued by Lucius in Orre. He is fiercely loyal to Herbert because of this.
- Apologetic Attacker: Often.
- Badass Adorable: At least according to Sakura.
- Beware the Nice Ones: A friendly, polite and reserved Pokemon who despises violence in all its forms... who also happens to be the strongest Pokemon on Lucius' team and in possession of powerful paternal instincts. Messing with him or his team is a very bad idea, as Teacher found out.
- Dark and Troubled Past: As a Shadow Pokemon, he tore two Cipher members to shreds and almost killed Herbert when they first met.
- Deadpan Snarker: It's subtle, but Bishop's brand of wit is rather sarcastic. Get him angry - a difficult feat - and he unleashes a vicious barrage of snark.
- Fate Worse than Death: Seems to consider becoming a Shadow Pokémon as such.
- Glass Cannon: As a Scyther, Bishop was powerful, but he could barely take even a couple of hits.
- Jumped at the Call: Was quite eager to evolve and probably would do so immediately was it not for Herbert deciding to wait for a while.
- Lightning Bruiser: He seems to have become one upon evolution.
- Nice Guy: One of the only Pokemon on Herbert's team willing to place the wellbeing of others above his own.
- Papa Wolf: Possesses strong paternal instincts and is highly protective of his team.
- Platonic Life-Partners: Is still good friends with Seth despite him not reciprocating his crush.
- Straight Gay: He has a crush on Sakura's Scizor, Seth, who doesn't reciprocate.
- Team Dad: The one responsible for taking care of his team, especially without Kirk around.
- Undying Loyalty: To Lucius, to the point where he will inflict Disproportionate Retribution on anyone that threatens him.
- Why Did It Have To Be...:
- Stone Edge: Possibly the move he was hit with the most ever since his debut, though that's bound to change since he's now a Scizor.
- Shadow Pokémon: Completely froze upon facing Shadow!Duke, but has learnt to face his fear after multiple encounters with other Shadows.
Elan (Male Bibarel)

Leia (Female Politoed)
A Politoed from the Dream World, caught by Lucius in Castelia City.
Wrex (Male Scraggy)

- Cheerful Child
- Keet: He is constantly bouncing around, trying to fight with everything he sees and yelling excitedly.
- Motor Mouth: Has his moments, sometimes accompanied by fellow Motor Mouth Shale for double the headache and confusion.
Falchion (Male Bisharp)
A Pawniard that formerly worked for Edge's Pawniard army, which kidnapped Carol. Falchion was taken captive by Luicus and is now forced to work for him instead.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Defeat Means Friendship: After his defeat, Edge's last order to him was to follow Herbert's orders, and he does so to the best of his ability. Doesn't mean he likes it, however.
- Dirty Coward: Will utilise any means possible to get out of a fight.
- Token Evil Teammate
Samus (Female Tranquill)
A Dream World Tranquill, Samus was originally caught by Lucius as a Pidove in Opelucid City.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Divorced from reality to an almost dangerous extent, to the point where she refers to Aelia as a "nice scientist lady" and enjoys being forcibly multityped.
- Shipper on Deck
Harkness (Male Monferno)
Originally a Chimchar caught by Jacob in the Unova League at the peak of the Dream World crisis, Harkness has since been traded to Lucius and evolved into a Monferno.
Revan (Male Dusknoir)
Lucanus' closest companion during his life, Revan died at the hands of the Ghost Lord, only to be resurrected as a ghost himself. He spent the next six centuries in a Holonese tomb before eventually being found by Lucius' team. Is also Maul's ancestor.
- Broken Pedestal: Suffers from this after learning about Lucanus' FaceHeel Turn.
- Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Lucius calls him out for allowing his entire existence to revolve around Lucanus, and ever since he has been uncertain about what to do with himself.
- The Gadfly: Much like his descendant.
- Jerkass: Takes a perverse sort of pride in being as much of an annoying asshole as possible.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Despite his apparent disdain for the man, he genuinely liked and admired Lucanus.
Kerrigan (Female Machop)
A Shadow Pokemon that Lucius snagged from a pair of Cipher Peons in Orre.
- Played by: PinkCelebi
Denshi (Female Raichu)Eridanus's starter that has been received as a Pichu from a friend that's also her former Trainer.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Her actions show this sometimes. For example, when it was revealed that her Hidden Power would be a Dragon-type, she pretended to be a dragon.
- Genki Girl: Has a lot of energy.
- Nice Girl: Like her Trainer, she's a kind Pokemon by default.
Forge (Masculine Magnemite)A Magnemite caught back in Mauville City when Pokemon from New Mauville started to swarm the city. While Magnemite's physical gender is unknown, mentally Forge is a male.

Vivi (Male Fennekin)A Fennekin received from Sycamore's assistant.

She eventually caught up to her brother and traveled with the J-Team for a while before returning home to focus on school and run from her feelings.

First appearance: Page 1667.
- Alliterative Name: Mezzo Morendo.
- Ascended Fangirl: She used to write fanfiction of the team before she joined them, though she now considers it an Old Shame. (Tagg and Gamer taking turns mocking it while ignorant of the writer's true identity probably also helped.)

- Bifauxnen: Several people have mistaken her for a boy.
- Casting a Shadow: Her whole team, and herself as a Liepard.

- Everybody's Dead, Dave: Nearly all Mezzo's mons save for Felis and Dreadwing end up dying fighting Napoleon's forces.
- FaceHeel Turn: The majority of Mezzo's mons are evil in the AU arc.
- No-Sell: Against Psychic attacks. However, it also means they can't receive telepathic messages.
Felis (Male Liepard)
Mezzo's starter, originally a pet Purrloin she received as a birthday present before she began her journey. He considers himself Mezzo's favorite, and in a few ways, he's right. He has a bit of a spoiled attitude, but does love his trainer.
- Attack the Tail: Gets his tail cut off by Napoleon in the AU.
- Bullying a Dragon: Insults everyone, including literal dragons and legendaries. Twice has he tried to bully Nadia, and both times he was nearly killed.

- Cats Are Snarkers: Felis can't help but give at least one snarky remark to someone.
- Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Insults Ho-oh, a god, without skipping a beat.
- Flat "What": Uses these so often, it's practically his catchphrase.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: Sticks with Mezzo no matter what, even when the Nihilego toxin is messing with her mind he refuses to abandon her and even fights the J-Teamers who try to stop her out of pure loyalty.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Has shown that despite being a jerk most of the time he does care about Mezzo.
- Jerkass Has a Point: Has a few moments like this.

Sunny (Male Umbreon; an Espeon in the AU)
An Umbreon that Mezzo received as a gift from her brother. He is generally cheerful and optimistic, despite his Dark typing but fitting his name. He's the only member of Mezzo's team who can read. He has an interest in writing fanfiction and a tendency to pair people together in his head.
- Bi the Way: Likes girls, but is also in a relationship with Kensei, Wolf's Samurott.
- Exposition Fairy: Takes on this role when he and Wolf are pulled into a Pokémon-themed version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
- Head Pet: Forced in this position as a tinfoil hat when Mezzo is afraid of DSpeon reading her thoughts.
- Keet: Is very energetic.
- Love Freak: As best shown through his numerous romance fics.
- Shipper on Deck: Likes pairing up everyone in the group, trainer and Pokémon alike (Regardless of any relationships they might be in), and writes fanfiction about them. He once got himself into trouble for publishing a Mezzo/Wolf fanfiction under Mezzo's name. Or a (very cute) Poké!Mezzery one.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: With his brother, Shadow.
- Squee!: What he does upon encountering a new ship. Also how he uses Screech.
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: Particularly in the AU, where it's his idealism that ends up awakening Zekrom.

Dreadwing (Female Mandibuzz)
A Mandibuzz that Mezzo originally caught as a Vullaby on Unova Route 10. She likes to collect bones to decorate herself with. Mezzo uses her to fly, since she's bigger than Nevermore.
- Blow You Away: Part Flying type.
- Captain Crash: Whenever she tries to fly Mezzo anywhere, she ends up crashing into someone or something.
- Made of Iron: Survived a Thunderbolt in the AU that killed Nevermore despite her weakness to Electric attacks.
Cerberus (Female Houndoom)
A Houndoom that Mezzo caught from a pack traveling on Unova Route 9. She loves nothing more than to burn things with her fiery breath.

- Terse Talker: Speaks very infrequently, and even then only in one-word snippets.
Charybdis (Female Hydreigon)
A Hydreigon that was caught as a Deino on Unova's Victory Road. Before she evolved, Felis tormented her relentlessly. After an incident involving a Dragon Pulse so strong it prevented Felis from walking for a week, he is now utterly terrified of her. Mezzo rides on her when she needs to cross water, since she's the only one on the team that knows Surf.
- Pride: Thinks of herself as superior to all other Pokémon.
Serket (Female Drapion)
A Drapion that was originally caught as a Skorupi in Sinnoh's Safari Zone. She views battling as a friendly competition, and is mostly interested in developing new strategies and seeking worthy opponents.
Nevermore (Female Honchkrow)
A Honchkrow that was originally caught as a Murkrow in Sinnoh's Eterna Forest. She is pushy and demanding, and has a habit of pecking Mezzo in the head until her demands are met. She thinks of herself as the boss and Mezzo and her other Pokémon as her minions.
- Jerkass: Is a big one, and unlike Felis she's yet to have any sympathetic moments.
Spiny (Male Sharpedo)
A Sharpedo that Mezzo caught as a Carvanha in the Orange Islands. He likes to bite things.

- More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Like any other shark, his main weapon is his teeth, and he has a lot of them.
Butterscotch (Male Zoroark)
An illusionary Zoroark that was created by Fool practicing Obscura powers. He gained a life of his own and was given away to Mezzo. As a result of his odd origin, he is yellow instead of the usual Zoroark colors.
- Brutal Honesty: A trait of his.

Xel'lotath (Female Malamar)

- Shout-Out: Named after an Eldritch Abomination from Eternal Darkness.
- Sickly Green Glow: Much like her namesake, her Psychic attacks take this color.
- Voice of the Legion: Like her namesake, she speaks with two voices. When angered, both speak in unison.
A Trainer from Sinnoh, specifically Jubilife City, who is honestly more content following others and enjoying life's simpler things... at least, as simple as being involved with the J-Team in any way gets.
- The Apprentice: Has been described as being one to Lucius, though how true this is has yet to be seen.
- Author Avatar: To an extent, at least. Though, the name alone should've tipped you off to that fact.
- Disappeared Dad: Downplayed. He didn't outright disappear entirely, but didn't interact with Halis very much at all during their upbringing. His location is more or less public knowledge, given that he owns a company.
- Giver of Lame Names: Seriously, who names an Aron "Aran" and isn't this trope?
- Iconic Item: A scarf. They almost always wear one, even when it's illogical to do so.
- Morality Pet: Intends on being one to Lucius to some extent. Though, it's unclear if he actually needs this or not...
- Morphic Resonance: As previously mentioned, they almost always wear a scarf, even in alternate forms of theirs.
- Performance Anxiety: Any large amount of attention is enough to make them, at the very least, nervous. It's part of why they prefer being a follower rather than a leader.
- Scarf Of Asskicking: A long, pink one, though Halis doesn't end up fighting very often, and unlike most examples of this trope, they usually have the sensibility to take it off before anything important happens.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Through an enchanted scarf, naturally. However, they're currently locked into it due to a situation of their own design.
- Speaks Fluent Animal: Anyone who's been in Mon form before has this ability, and Halis is no different.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Green hair speaks for itself when it comes to this.
- Abusive Parents: When he lived in Sinnoh, Milagros was repeatedly abused for petty reasons.
- Baleful Polymorph: Was once turned into an Anorith by a Mew. He was miffed to say the least.
- Butt-Monkey: He was repeatedly abused and then attacked by two mons when he got to Kanto, ended up receiving a Groin Attack as soon as he left Ersatz, had his motorbike ruined by Team Skull grunts and got a Thunder Punch to the face by an Alolan Graveler among other things.
- Everybody Was Kung-Fu Fighting: As a Pancham.
- Expy: One of Alejandro.
- Groin Attack: A running gag has Milagros repeatedly get hit in the balls.
- Shout-Out: Refers to a groin attack as a kiwi shot.
- Speaks Fluent Animal: Can easily understand and speak Monese, and he knows it by his native tongue after turning into a Pancham for the first time.
- Transformation Trinket: Is in ownership of a Human to Pokemon Armband, which allows him to turn into a Pancham.
