A 27 year old (19 at his debut) Pokémon Trainer from a nondescript town in Kanto near Viridian City. Tagg started his own Pokémon journey ten years before the events of the story with an unnamed Bulbasaur, making him one of the most experienced Trainers in the group.

Within the first few years of his journey, Tagg ended up collecting the badges of the Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn regions and had several run ins with Teams Rocket, Magma, and Aqua, as well as Cipher in Orre. During this time he also met Groudon and received a Blue Orb from him following a rather odd card game. At the age of 16 he tired of simply doing battles and joined the Expanded Pokedex Project, which allowed him to explore a good portion of the world for science, and take down a Mega-Corp in the process.

When he was 17, he traveled to Sinnoh for research and Gym Badges, and got involved in the fight against Team Galactic concurrently to DS' own journey, though neither was aware of each other at the time, and Tagg's own involvement was behind the scenes. Afterwards, he wandered around again, having many more adventures, before ending up at an airport at 19 and meeting the people that would become his closest friends.

Since then, Tagg's become a Mudkip, helped kill two glitches, helped take down a Team Rocket admin, earned all eight Unovan Gym Badges, ended up in a tie with Fool at the GC, helped calm Primal Dialga at the end of a month's stay in an alternate universe, and has gone on other crazy adventures with said friends.

First Appearance: Page 2

  • Accidental Misnaming: During the infiltration of the Altru Tower Tagg is mistaken for a Cipher operative by the name of Bernaldo, even after he changes back to his regular outfit, to his extreme annoyance.
  • Adorkable: While more hidden than most and mostly observed by his mons, Tagg's a bit of a dork under the layers of cynicism and badassery.
  • Another Side, Another Story: His concurrent adventures to Gamer and DS in the Hoenn and Sinnoh regions.
  • The Atoner: Following Orre he's been making a constant effort to keep himself from falling off the wagon again by giving into revenge.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: The de facto leader of the J-Team, and is considered pretty much the toughest trainer and fighter on it.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Even without the use of Aura, Tagg's extremely observant of his surroundings.
  • Badass Bookworm: Tagg is both a skilled researcher and a skilled combatant, both in terms of Pokemon battling and hand to hand. Amongst the J-Team he's considered one of the strongest members if not the strongest member of the group.
  • Barrier Warrior: Tagg is capable of making Auric barriers, but in comparison to Crewe his were originally very weak and were only useful for buying time, though by his battle with Constantin they appear to have gotten strong enough to be an effective defense.
  • Bash Brothers:
    • Often teamed up with Gamer for Double Battles in earlier arcs, and they even teamed up to take the E4 challenge together.
    • He and Tracer work very well together.
  • Been There, Shaped History: Tagg has been present for some of the most important events of the Pokémon world, including the weather trio's clash and the events of Mt. Coronet, not even counting the things he's been up to since joining the J-Team.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Never treat a Pokémon like trash in front of him. For this reason he appears to hate Cipher and poachers of any stripe especially.
    • Accusing him of being a Pokémon abuser, as he attempted to throttle Herbert for that.
  • Best Served Cold: Tokarev tried to murder him at 13, and he's wanted revenge against him and Cipher for their crimes ever since.
  • Blood Knight: It's very subtle, but on some level Tagg appears to enjoy a good fight, which can at times interfere with his pragmatism.
  • Bold Explorer: Tagg is a researcher who can't help but end up adventuring.
  • Broken Ace: Tagg is an incredibly gifted trainer who suffers from PTSD from his past experiences and is implied to be a Death Seeker on some level, as while he's not in a rush to die per se, it's more his friends who keep him breathing.
  • Can't Stop the Signal: His task during the establishing operation in PEFE backstory was to ensure that evidence of Pokefuture's misdeeds reached the media and he eventually ended up taking refuge in a Kantonese embassy.
  • Chain Pain: His most used form of Auric construct apart from his Aura blade are chains for binding and/or whipping opponents. By the Conquest arc he's figured out how to make bladed chains for slicing, stabbing, and shredding opponents.
  • The Chains of Commanding: As Tagg has become more of a leader, he's also had to deal with making decisions he's not necessarily happy about due to the J-Team evolving from just a bunch of friends who happen to defeat evil teams on the side, to becoming an institution that cannot be seen doing certain things, often without the knowledge of the bulk of the group for their own protection.
  • Character Development: Tagg's own personal character arc has dealt with first making friends with people who weren't researchers, to dealing with his own desire for revenge, and as of the Recovery saga dealing with what it means to be a leader of more than just mons.
  • Chick Magnet:
    • According to the fanbase he's one of the hottest J-Team guys.
    • During the Truth or Dare session Lina, Ammy, Lyuri, and Echo admitted or hinted towards some sort of attraction to him.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: It becomes more apparent as the journey goes forward that Tagg doesn't always think like other people, but it's a rather mild case though.
  • Collector of the Strange: Tagg has amassed the largest amount of legendary artifacts of any single J-Team member over the course of his adventures.
  • Color Motifs: Tends to wear dark green, blue, or grey clothing, and his internal monologue is colored green.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Was first shown to be one during the storming of the Sky Fortress and tends to be one in general during fight or die scenarios. For instance, he has no problems ordering all his mons to attack one opponent at once or starting a fight by attacking from behind. As far as he's concerned, when lives are on the line, fighting fair's for chumps.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Considers his transformation into a Pokémon during the first PMD arc as this, as after he gets over the initial shock he doesn't really mind being a Mudkip all that much.
  • The Cynic: Tagg's experiences have not exactly made him a believer in a just world and purely happy endings, but he's willing to fight for them anyway.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Nearly getting murdered by Cipher as a youth had a major effect on Tagg's worldview.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Was hinted to have one of these beforehand, but it really came to the fore during the mindscape miniarc when it was revealed that he was a survivor of a Cipher hit, which left him with a longstanding hatred for the organization.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Tagg's normal reaction to an annoyance or stupidity is to snark, though he's generally more deadpan than snarky.
  • Defiant to the End: His answer when Verax tries to strangle him to death with telekinesis? Simply grabbing his neck with an Aura construct in an attempt to at least make a Mutual Kill if he couldn't strangle or snap his neck first instead.
  • Dragon Rider: His most common flying draconic mount tends to be Draca the Salamence, though on the ground he's started using Sue the Tyrantrum as of the Kalos arc.
  • Elemental Eye Colors: Has brown eyes and his Pokéform is a Swampert, a partial Ground-type.
  • The Empath: Is revealed to be Aura sensitive during the GC arc.
  • Enemies List: Tagg has a list of all his adversaries in his possession. Upon getting the Stormchasher he's even added a web of intrigue on a wall.
  • Enemy Within: Nihilist!Tagg, who represents his inner pain. Luckily, most of the time his other aspects are busy keeping him sealed away.
  • Enlightenment Superpowers: Is undergoing training with Salvador in order to use the Gates, which necessitates reaching a state of enlightenment.
  • Experienced Protagonist: Tagg had been a trainer for nine going on ten years when the story started, and a very successful one at that.
  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: Often invokes this when using Aura Sense since his eyes glow when it's in use.
  • The Faceless: A common Running Gag was Tagg not having his face depicted for various reasons due to Jane's writer being incapable of imagining a look for him in-universe. This changed later on.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Ends up 600 years in an alternate AU future in PMD-R, and spends Holonquest in 15th Century Ransei.
  • Friend or Idol Decision: Is forced to choose between letting Tokarev go or letting DS die. He chooses DS.
  • Friendly Enemy: With Echo back when she ran the Illusion Project, as neither disliked the other. After Echo's Heel–Face Turn the "enemy" part disappears entirely.
  • Genre Savvy: Tagg tends to be pretty hard to fool due to his knowledge of how the WAAPTverse works, with Anja being one of the few beings who has ever completely outwitted him.
  • The Gloves Come Off: When fighting supernatural or otherwise extremely powerful opponents, Tagg quits playing around and goes straight for the kill.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Tagg is normally a pretty nice guy if rather untalkative, but if angered or if his friends are threatened, he is quite capable and willing to use his own bare hands to beat the daylights out of and/or use his Pokémon to seriously hurt or even outright kill his enemy if deemed necessary. Basically, while he would very much prefer not to fight unnecessarily and often attempts negotiation, if that doesn't work he will end a threat in the quickest manner possible, which tends to be fairly brutal. For instance:
    • When Tokarev threatened to kill his friends and girlfriend while beating the crap out of him, Tagg managed to get a Heroic Second Wind and cost the Cipher Admin his eye and right hand and leg by slicing them off and would have killed him had he not needed to rescue DS in that exact moment.
    • When Tagg finds out that he has the option of having Grohl and Kieran's souls being taken in exchange for Lucius and Alice's revival, he not only takes it without hesitation due to the pain and suffering they've caused, but even requests that Salvador tell Grohl in particular that he said that his friends "are not [Grohl's] playthings" when he reaps his soul so that the Beheeyem would know that Tagg was involved in his death in some fashion.
    • When Lex makes him angry by asking for a pizza slice in return for information on Neo-Flare following learning about his part in creating terrible weapons, Tagg lets him have it, but puts it on the ground for Lex to eat like a dog simply to humiliate him for his lack of morals.
  • Guile Hero: What Tagg can't simply have his mons (Or himself) beat or blast into submission directly, he outsmarts.
  • Had To Be Sharp: Spent most of his teenage years in the sparsely populated and mountainous Tohoku region analogue having to deal with the elements, poachers, and hostile wild mons where he could've died if he suffered any serious injuries. You don't survive for that long in a place like that without being incredibly clever.
  • Heroic BSoD: Has one after watching the Anville group get viciously attacked by a pack of Zoroark, and almost has another following the defeat of 'M due to Anom's temporary death. Other moments have included the Oblivia arc and the AU arc.
  • Hero of Another Story: Ended up unknowingly helping out both Gamer and DS in their own adventures before they'd even properly met.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Despite all his accomplishments, Tagg has a lot of self-worth issues.
  • Heroic Willpower: It's notable that Tagg appears to have a very strong resistance to mind control and all other types of mental tampering. For instance, it took a small army of Zrone's Psychic types to puppet his body, and even then they failed to completely subordinate his will.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Tracer, his closest friend amongst his fellow Founders.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: In the Orre arc, he ends up murdering a large number of Cipher Peons (Who albeit were also out to kill him) and threatening Cipher as a whole with the same fate through a public video. Despite many of the J-Team calling him out on it, he doesn't start to come to a Heel Realization until Tangent and Tracer call him out. However, it doesn't quite stick until he's forced to choose between letting Tokarev go and letting DS die.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • While people tend to think Tagg's humorless if they don't know him very well, he does have an understated sense of humor.
    • Looks into his mindscape also reveal that he has a very acute sense of racial thought, and often worries that his abilities in combat make him a walking stereotype.
  • Hold the Line: Does this in a flashback against a bunch of Team Galactic Grunts on Mount Coronet to serve as a distraction during the climax of the Team Galactic incident.
  • Holding Back the Phlebotinum: The main reason that Tagg doesn't use the Adamant and Blue Orbs very often despite how laughable they could make some of his battles, is a fear of getting overly reliant on legendaries to solve his problems.
  • Humans Are White: Except for Tagg, who's black.
  • Humble Hero: Despite how powerful his mons get and how skilled he is, Tagg always remains humble and gracious despite being aware of both things.
  • I Gave My Word: Despite his pragmatism, Tagg takes personal vows very seriously.
  • In Harm's Way: Admits to DS in a phone call that his current life is the only one he feels comfortable in. Said life being an extremely dangerous one where tomorrow is not guaranteed.
  • In the Hood: Tends to wear either a grey or green hoodie, and his Leavanny suit comes with a hood.
  • Parental Substitute: Serves as this to Doc since his mother's dead and his father's missing, and PEFE!Every since her parents abandoned her.
  • It's Personal: Besides what Cipher did to him in particular, Tagg also hates them for shadowing Doc, doing horrible experiments to Lina, injuring his other friends badly enough to put them in the hospital, and brainwashing his apprentice Ever.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: While not weak, Tagg is about average in terms of sheer Auric potential (Albeit likely on the higher end of average since he can use the Gates), but makes up for that with an in-depth knowledge of how his powers work as well as being a fairly quick study. As a result, he's probably the most well rounded of the J-Team's Aurics.
  • Large and in Charge: Tagg is among the tallest out of all the Trainers still around and happens to be de facto leader of the J-Team.
  • The Leader: While the J-Team is officially a volunteer outfit with no de jure leader, Tagg is generally considered the de facto leader of the J-Team following Anom and Jane's departure from the group, as he tends to be the one that gets everyone on board for planning assaults, and sets general team conduct due to being one of the last remaining senior members.
  • Maligned Mixed Marriage: Zizagged. Save for Constantin, no one has ever given Tagg and Fool any issues over their relationship in terms of race.
  • Making a Splash: As a Mudkip and later Marshtomp and Swampert in the PMD universes or when using a human to Pokémon armband, who are Water and Ground type Pokémon.
  • Meaningful Name: Most of his named Pokémon have this.
  • The Mentor: Serves as one directly to Ever and Maggie, as well as Crow to a lesser degree. He also tries to advise the other younger members of the J-Team when he can.
  • Mr. Exposition: If something needs to be explained, Tagg is often the one to do it, as he's one of the most knowledgeable J-Team members regarding the world at large, both in its mundane and supernatural aspects.
  • My Greatest Failure: Considers Anom's Yanmega's death in Unova-1, being unable to see through Anja and prevent Vyvyan's transformation into a Rayquaza during Hoenn-1, and the infamous Very Bad Thing during Orre where he gave into his desire for revenge as the greatest failures of his life.
  • Mysterious Past: The two to three year period between when he first met Tokarev and when he joined the PEFE hasn't been deeply explored, though according to Word of God they were among the most formative of his life.
  • Nice Guy:
    • Provided that you're not trying to kill or otherwise harm him or his friends, Tagg is a pretty nice guy if a bit distant.
    • Both Sol and DS' feelings towards him were primarily based on his personal kindness rather than his martial prowess or more negative qualities.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a blue baseball cap, and temporarily replaces it with a rice paddy hat for the Conquest arc.
  • Not Good with People: Is only truly comfortable around other members of the group and his fellow researchers and even then he has problems at times.
  • Odd Friendship:
    • He and Tracer with Randy, as they're relatively straight-laced researchers while he's a rather crude imageboard contributor.
    • Despite all the bad blood between him and Verax during Orre, including mutual attempts to kill one another, they've actually managed to form somewhat of a comradeship if not an outright friendship.
  • Offhand Backhand: Finishes off Constantin during their first duel by backhanding him with a large Aura construct hand.
  • Official Couple: Is dating Sol, and also Channah.
  • Only Friend: Channah's Fangirl aspect mentions that she considers him her only real friend.
  • Pals with Jesus:
    • Has a pretty good rapport with Groudon and Dialga.
    • He also appears to be at least on friendly terms with Uxie to the point that he purposely seeks her out for advice.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: His view on taking on Cipher is to be just as brutal back, which ends up eventually leading to the infamous Very Bad Thing in which he slaughters dozens of Cipher Peons as a threat towards Cipher's leaders following things going to hell in Orre.
  • Perception Filter: The Someone Else's Problem field, which causes people to ignore him completely.
  • Polyamory: Is dating both Sol and Channah.
  • Pragmatic Hero: Due to the Darker and Edgier nature of his solo adventures, Tagg is a lot more willing to kill his opponents in life-or-death struggles, though he makes a point out of only doing it if deemed necessary for the protection of himself or others.
  • Price on Their Head: Tokarev places a price on his head for Cipher during the Orre Arc, and the Peons he and his mons killed during the Very Bad Thing were purposely looking to collect on his bounty.
  • Protectorate: Considers the entire J-Team to be under his direct protection.
  • Punch a Wall: Has done this about two times when upset, and has injured his hands both times as a result.
  • Remember That You Trust Me: Often has to be reminded to trust people after he starts to relapse back to his old loner behaviors, which is fairly often.
  • Renaissance Man: Apart from his skills in biology and combat, Tagg has also shown knowledge in history, mythology, sealing, and even explosives engineering. (Enough in the case of the latter that he can make C4.)
  • Romantic Asexual: He's a heteromantic gray-asexual in romantic relationships with two women at once.
  • The Quiet One: Except when angry or excited. The former tends not to be pretty, as he happens to be a fan of the Precision F-Strike and the Cluster F-Bomb.
  • Sanity Has Advantages: Manages to defeat Constantin in their first battle by being the more mentally stable of the two despite being the weaker Auric.
  • Seen It All: After several years of travel with the J-Team, it's hard to get a surprised reaction out of him.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Following the end of the AU arc he's had PTSD, though it's very likely he had it before from nearly getting murdered by Tokarev as a kid.
  • Shoot the Dog: Considers himself the J-Team's unofficial Lillipup shooter, aka the person who's willing to do less than squeaky clean acts so that the others don't have to.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: When incensed he has one of the filthiest mouths out of all the trainers, if not the filthiest, to his own admittance and chagrin, though it has abated as of late.
  • Team Dad: Has this role towards his mons, and his interactions with the younger J-Team members has him either doing his best to advise them, or assisting in fixing a mistake they've made while trying to keep them from getting into too much trouble.
  • There Are No Therapists: In Tagg's case it's because most people simply wouldn't believe that most of his traumas had ever happened.
  • Time Master: When using the Adamant Orb Tagg can manipulate time. In the PMD-B timeline Tagg's knowledge of the Adamant Orb is such that he can age mons to dust or turn them back into eggs on a massive scale.
  • Transformation Trinket: Owns a human to Pokémon armband.
  • Vengeance Feels Empty: When Lucius asks him if he feels great about finally getting revenge on Cipher in the aftermath of the Orre Arc, he answers, "Not really." since DS' near-death reminds him of the cost he almost paid to do so.
  • Verbal Tic: "My friend" in the earlier arcs, and later ellipses similar to Star's.
  • Walking the Earth: Has been to all of the known major regions plus Orre within his fourteen years of being a trainer, and is kind of a drifter anyway, normally rarely staying in one place for very long when not with the J-Team.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gets this after slaughtering a bunch of Peons and making a video with their corpses in the background about it by the rest of the J-Team to varying degrees.
  • Willfully Weak:
    • A personal rule of Tagg's is to only fight force with appropriate force when in tournament settings, so he's normally willfully battling handicapped. For instance, he won't use Mega Evolution unless his opponent also has it.
    • Even outside of tournaments he's reluctant to use Mega Evolution unless truly pressed, but that's partially more due to seeing it as overkill when his mons tend to already have an immense gulf of power between them and their opponents save for the supernatural anyway.
  • World's Best Warrior: While he attempts to keep a low profile, amongst the J-Team Tagg is considered the strongest trainer on it.
  • Wowing Cthulhu: Manages to convince Yveltal to allow Lucius and Alice's revival by pointing out how their very universe works on narrative causality, and as such their unsatisfying deaths was jarring to near reality-breaking levels, which impresses the death god after Salvador and Sol's appeals fail.

PMD-B only tropes:

  • Dying Alone: Tagg ends up entombing himself in his 90s with the Adamant Orb following a Raider attack, having outlived most of his mons, who ended up dying to either old age or combat. He was also likely among the last of the PEFE Founders and J-Team members with a mortal mon form to die.

For the team in general

  • Badass Crew: There are very few things that Tagg's mons can't defeat working together. When combined with enough mons of similar strength they can become an outright Badass Army.
  • Barrier Warrior: Most know Protect.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Since Tagg's Pokémon are the Pokémon of a field researcher, not to mention often dealing with the J-Team's nastier enemies, it makes them far more willing to respond with lethal force if themselves or their trainer are threatened, due to the nature of their job. Outside of battle they're all generally nice though.
  • Breaking the Fellowship: In the PMD-B timeline a bunch of Tagg's mons stayed with the Brotherhood of Steel, Helios went to take the Relic Castle throne with Audilith as an advisor, and his Dragon types (Draca, Garchomp, and Hydreigon) left the Brotherhood following his death.
  • Child Soldiers: While most of them would be considered adults by mon standards, Kahina states that she finds it a little disturbing how good they are at fighting despite being so young.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Just like their trainer, in life-or-death battles, any semblance of fairness is kicked to the curb and they're all very willing to fight dirty, often just straight up mobbing their opponents or being quite willing to open up with a lethal sneak attack.
  • Confusion Fu: Tagg's mons tend to know a lot of moves, including ones that you wouldn't expect them to know.
  • The Gloves Come Off: Most of the time Tagg's mons tend to hold back in battles since going full throttle could end up with someone dead. If they don't, they tend to show very quickly what it means to be the mons of a multi-league Champion with more than a decade of experience, both in official and street battles.
  • Killed Off for Real: In Salvador's timeline, Muddy, Steel, and Draca all died during the Neo-Flare base raid in the Hoenn-2 arc, Muddy in particular at Shaka's hands.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: During PMD-R Tagg's mons all wear scarves, dark green for Team Taxonomy and light green for Team Nova, and they kick plenty of ass during it.
  • Snark Ball: Sarcasm is a very common character trait. Even Nudi and Helios have had their moments.
  • Strong and Skilled: What makes Tagg's mons dangerous isn't just that they're to a man extremely strong, but that they have the direction to use their power properly.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Team Nova in particular takes several throughout the course of PMD-R, and every new region has Tagg's newest team members turn from a bunch of randoms to a team of badassess over the course of a few months.
  • True Companions: Their loyalty isn't just to their trainer, it's to each other as well as friends.
  • Undying Loyalty: From the deepest depths of the wilderness to even active warzones in the case of the AU, Tagg's Pokémon have followed him everywhere.

Nudi (East Sea Gastrodon, Male)

Met: Route 213, Sinnoh (East Sea Shellos)
Ability: Storm Drain
Ball: Great

An East Sea Gastrodon that Tagg caught in Sinnoh outside of Pastoria as a Shellos. Nudi can be rather naive and a bit of a pain, as well as a sore loser, but Tagg loves him anyway. His specialty is mainly in special attacks and tanking his opponents with his fairly high defense.

Luxray (Male)

Met: Route 202, Sinnoh (Shinx)
Ability: Rivalry
Ball: Poke

The third member of Tagg's main Sinnoh team, Luxray was a Shinx when Tagg caught him on Route 202 after he interrupted a battle between Gaia and Roc. While very serious in nature, the one Pokémon he happens to be closest to is Nudi the Gastrodon. In battle he tends to be a jack of all trades.

Roc (Staraptor, Male)

Met: Route 202, Sinnoh (Starly)
Ability: Intimidate
Ball: Poke

Gaia (Torterra, Female)

Met: Sandgem Town, Sinnoh (Turtwig) [Gift from Professor Rowan]
Ability: Overgrow
Ball: Poke

Tagg's first Sinnoh Pokémon, Gaia was given to Tagg by Professor Rowan. Highly curious in nature, she also happens to act like everyone's mother half of the time. In battle, she relies on her high physical defense and powerful physical attacks.

Cobalt (Metagross, Genderless, though Tagg often refers to them using masculine pronouns)

Met: Mossdeep City, Hoenn (Beldum) [Gift from Steven Stone]
Ability: Clear Body
Ball: Poke

Cobalt was given to Tagg in Mossdeep as a gift by Steven Stone. While not the strongest Pokémon at first, he eventually evolved to be one of the most powerful Pokémon in Tagg's possession. Cobalt also happened to be used by Tagg as a translator whenever the group needed to speak to legendaries before they gained their ability to speak to Pokémon. In battle he relies on physical moves such as Meteor Mash, as well as Psychic.

Draca (Salamence, Female)

Met: Meteor Falls, Hoenn (Bagon)
Ability: Intimidate
Ball: Ultra

Musashi (Samurott, Male)

Met: Nuvema Town, Unova (Oshawott) [Recieved from Professor Juniper]
Ability: Torrent
Ball: Poke

The first Pokémon Tagg obtained in Unova, Musashi was an Oshawott when Tagg received him from Professor Juniper. While not the most sociable of Pokémon, often preferring to practice his swordplay alone, Musashi more or less serves as the second in command of Tagg's Unovan team. In battle he tends to use a mixture of physical and special attacks.

Audilith (Gigalith, Female)

Met: Wellspring Cave, Unova (Roggenrola)
Ability: Sturdy
Ball: Poke

Aliroz (Krookodile, Male)

Met: Route 4, Unova (Sandile)
Ability: Moxie
Ball: Great

Unfezant (Male)

Met: Route 3, Unova (Pidove)
Ability: Super Luck
Ball: Poke

Sirius (Stoutland, Male)

Met: Route 1, Unova (Lillipup)
Ability: Sand Rush
Ball: Poke

Throh (Male)

Met: Outer Pinwheel Forest, Unova
Ability: Guts
Ball: Great

Vanilluxe (Male)

Met: Cold Storage, Unova (Vanillite)
Ability: Ice Body
Ball: Great

Tagg met Vanilluxe in Driftveil's Cold Storage as a Vanillite, where he made off with his hat before Tagg caught up with him. After playing around with everyone, he decided to join Tagg to see the world. Quirky and fairly artistic, Vanilluxe can be rather strange, but is smarter than many give him credit for. He also fathered two children with Audilith the Gigalith, Qui-Gon and Benny, surprisingly. While he doesn't have the greatest physical defense, he has great special defense and has the third highest special attack amongst Tagg's Unovan Pokémon, only beaten out by Helios and Hydreigon.

Trollfisk (Stunfisk, Female)

Met: Moor of Iccirus, Unova
Ability: Static
Ball: Ultra

Hydreigon (Female)

"Do you have any food?"

Met: Unova Victory Road (Deino)
Ability: Levitate
Ball: Ultra

Hydreigon and Tagg first met at Unova's Victory Road right before the climax of the Unova arc, where she attempted to take a bite out of his leg as a Deino. Taking pity on her upon discovering her emaciation, Tagg took her as his own, and got her undying loyalty as a result. Hydreigon is a good mon at heart, even though she has a nasty temper and lacks tact when it comes to eating. She also had problems comprehending friendship since her world consisted only of "food" and "predators", leading a lot of the other Pokémon to be afraid of her for a while.

Helios (Volcarona, Male)

Met: Most likely hatched in Nimbasa (Larvesta)
Ablility: Flame Body
Ball: Poke

Helios was hatched by Tagg as the offspring of Celestia and Tagg's Ditto. Helios evolved fairly quickly, which made him powerful, but left him as a physical adult with a child's mind. While seemingly naive and focused mainly on the consumption of honey, he can have a pretty keen insight on what needs to be done. In battle he relies mainly on speed and special attacks, and is one of the most powerful Pokémon in Tagg's possession. Currently he happens to be in a relationship of sorts with Algira, Silent's Masquerain.

Ditto (Genderfluid)

Met: Route 218, Sinnoh
Ability: Impostor
Ball: Nest

Garchomp (Female)

Met: Wayward Cave, Sinnoh (Gible)
Ability: Sand Veil
Ball: Dusk

Coulomb (Eelektross, Male)

Met: Chargestone Cave, Unova (Tynamo)
Ability: Levitate
Ball: Dusk

Forecaster (Castform, Female)

Met: Weather Institute, Hoenn
Ability: Forecast
Ball: Poke

Rampardos (Female)

Met: Oreburgh Mining Museum, Sinnoh (Cranidos) [Fossil revival]

Ball: Poke

  • Combat Medic: His main role is that of a medic, but he's a decent fighter as well.

  • Nice Hat: Has a tendency to wear a fedora.

Xatu (Male)

Met: Ruins of Alph, Johto (Natu)
Ability: Magic Bounce
Ball: Poké

  • Batman Gambit: A favorite tactic of his is simply to let those he watches do what they do naturally, with little nudges as necessary. PMD-R is basically him manipulating Tagg's Team Taxonomy, Tracer's Team Dreamcast, and Abby and Team Nova into being in the right place at the right time to get rid of the Unity and save Angela and shake the Bay's status quo respectively. The latter also served the purpose of getting the info about the Alakagross Civilization back to Tagg so that he and Tracer could warn their AU counterparts about what was coming and allow a forking of the AU and PMD-B timelines.
  • Berserk Button: Despite his manipulative tendencies he is completely loyal to Tagg, and doesn't really like being accused of disloyalty.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Tagg considers him to have a nearly impossible to understand mindset.

  • Catchphrase: "You are needed."
  • Creepy Monotone: According to Word of God his voice doesn't have much inflection to it most of the time.
  • Cryptic Conversation: Pretty much every conversation he has is filled with riddles and hidden meanings, to everyone's frustration.
  • Flight: Xatu can fly, but he's not very good at it.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Xatu despite his more manipulative tendencies is on the side of good, but that doesn't mean he's not capable of doing some not so nice things in the name of good.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Abby certainly thinks this of him, and he has proven to be fairly manipulative in the past.
  • Mind Rape: Is fully capable of doing this to those that try to harm those he watches over.
  • No-Sell: Knows Miracle Eye for Dark types.
  • Psychic Powers: Like all Xatu.
  • "Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to Morpheus here.

Ball: Great

  • Arbitrary Skepticism: Has problems believing in certain phenomena despite not only being a Psychic type but one that follows a trainer who's a Weirdness Magnet.
  • For Science!: Her catch phrase and modus operandi. Part of the reason Tagg caught her was mainly so that he could have his other mons keep an eye on her.
  • Psychic Powers: Like all Reuniclus.

Bohr (Slowking, Male)

Met: Mt. Pyre, Hoenn (Originally from the Abundant Shrine)
Ability: Unknown

Met: Mt. Pyre, Hoenn
Ability: Sand Stream

A reject from a trainer's breeding program who decided to strike out on her own and met up with Ana and Bohr, the trio sticking together through Hoenn before getting caught by Tagg.

  • Bratty Half-Pint: As a Larvitar.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Decided to snark at her younger brother Gilgamesh, who was fully evolved while she was still a Larvitar, and Sonny. The first ended without incident thanks to Bohr, the second required Artemia and Tagg's other mons to bail her out.
  • Deadpan Snarker: As a Pupitar and Tyranitar she ditched the brattiness but increased the snark.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: According to Word of God at least part of Pica's behavior is due to feeling inferior due to not being good enough to be used by her original trainer despite her great power.
  • Meaningful Name: Named after the disorder.
  • The Rival: To Artemia.
  • Rock Steady: Part Rock type.
  • Smug Super: While Pica is indeed a fairly powerful mon despite not quite making the cut of her original breeder's program, her knowledge of this has made her very arrogant while simultaneously fueling her Inferiority Superiority Complex.

  • Tsundere: Pica's not exactly as mean as she seems, but she's certainly reluctant to show it.

  • Extra-ore-dinary: Is a partial Steel type.
  • Hard Light: Is good at form manipulation much like Tagg.
  • Hate Plague: During Re: Glitch he gets possessed by the Vineglitch, which ramps up his agression.
  • G.I.F.T.: Is kind of an asshole when playing fighting games online.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Upon meeting him Tagg lampshades the cliche of an Aura sensitive taking on a Lucario as a party member, but following their battle he does it anyway.

    Tangent's Pokémon 

Basket (Tropius♀)

"Typical sloppiness... all this data on creating powerful clone/glitch mons, while the more interesting effects were dismissed as failures..."

Tangent's starter, found in Azalea Town when he was seven. Why did she fall into such a place is a mystery. She helped Tangent outgrow his fear of animals. Not in the AU however.

  • Desperation Attack: Frenzy Plant in the PEFE backstory OP. Justified in that she is Tangent's starter, and it still takes a whole lot of her.
  • No-Sell: As part of her "rivalry" with Maekrite, she grows Pecha Berries of her own.
  • Parental Abandonment: She only remembers two faces, and that's if that was them and not just any random Tropius of the herd. All together now, awwwwww.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Was the one to paralyze Lanius, and can match Tagg in ruthlessness if the situation calls for it.
  • The Bus Came Back: Was here at the beginning, but left and only came back at the beginning of the Fiore arc. He also tends to spend a lot of time away from the rest of the J-Team in general.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Tagg, being one of the very few people he trusts completely.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a fedora.
  • The Nondescript: Tracer is described as having an incredibly generic face, almost to the point that it loops around and becomes unique.

Nadia the Salamence

  • Companion Cube: Her Salamence plushie, Toothless.
  • Berserk Button: Watching Lake get harmed in her presence, which leads to her getting badly mauled in the final battle against Lanius during the AU arc.
  • Flight - Unsurprisingly, it means quite a bit to her. And her insecurities from learning to fly and later being grounded from a broken wing form the basis of a good deal of her initial character dynamics.
  • Playing with Fire: With Flamethrower and Fire Blast.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Picks up Earthquake during a TM binge in the AU.
  • Interspecies Romance: Has feelings for Lake. Who is outside of her egg group.

  • Tsundere: Has some Type A tendencies that pop up from time to time.

Kat the Marowak

Iggy the Blastoise

Sonny the Honchkrow

  • Berserk Button: Threatening or otherwise harming Courtney or Riana in his presence.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: As far as Sonny's concerned, he's the only one allowed to slap around his teammates, and isn't nearly as ruthless as Courtney.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: None of his teammates really like him, but tolerate his presence due to a combination of seniority as one of Tracer's first mons and the Vow preventing the carnivorous members from trying to eat him.
  • Glass Cannon: Sonny is a powerful attacker, but he can't take hits well, requiring Roost.
  • Gradual Grinder: His main strategy tends to be to use Toxic on something and then use Roost to heal any damage they inflict until they faint or keel over.
  • Gratuitous Russian: Draws some particular words for his Mafiya-like role.
  • Jerkass: Is a major one, to the point that all of Tagg's mons and most of his teammates either completely hate him or tolerate his presence at best.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite being a massive asshole to most other beings, he does care about his teammates to some extent, loves his siblings and daughter, and does have some morals.

Thog the Machamp

Zoltan the Aerodactyl

Francis the Ledian

  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: She's a giant metal ladybug.
  • The Cynic: Is one due to first only being kept around by her swarm because her metal hide served as a great distraction against predators as the swarm fed on them, and then joining Ferno's group only to find that he was more interested in ruling than the plight of Deltas.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Is part Steel type due to being a Delta Pokémon.

Andre the Tyranitar

Cleo the Relicanth

Cecil the Zoroark

Eir the Duskull

Moogle the Archen

Bottles the Drilbur

Pepper the Meganium

  • Berserk Button: If you do anything horrible to a child while Pepper is around, she will make you regret it. Rebecca nearly found this out the hard way.

     Umbramatic/ Joseph Nox  
Played by: Umbramatic

Umbramatic is a high priest of Giratina who's really 650 years old and had sealed himself in a temple to protect it... until he decided that since he's immortal and not gonna die anytime soon he would explore the world. Ghost types are naturally attracted to him, partially due to his life-force being an unlimited food source for some, as well as the Obscura infused into his body, and so he once specialized in training them. However, he has since expanded to include other types. He has shortish black hair and blue eyes. Was once the Ghost Lord of Spectra.

For tropes regarding his time as the Ghost Lord, see We Are All Pokemon Trainers Conquest.

First Appearance: 5020

  • Immortality: Umbra is immune to aging and disease, but is capable of being killed like any other human.
  • Immortality Begins at 20: Looks like he's in his early twenties.
  • Pimp Duds: Wears them in this dream sequence, complete with actual Liepard skin.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: His formality of speech (due to his being unfamiliar with modern culture) can lead to this. Has fortunately grown out of it.
  • Sinister Minister: As the Ghost Lord.
  • Sins of the Father: Defied, Umbra made a personal vow not to take any revenge on any of his old adversary's descendants for their actions from when he fought them as the Ghost Lord.

Played by: Bad Wolf 21 22 year old explorer from Johto, Wolf was introduced into the world of Pokémon at quite a young age, when his parents allowed him to keep a Vulpix he had bonded with while lost in the woods around Ecruteak City. At the age of 10, Wolf set out on his Pokémon journey with Vulpix in tow. After challenging and defeating the League, Wolf sought greater and greater challenges, eventually leading to him climbing to the peak of Mt. Silver. Wolf would continue to visit the famous mountain's summit until four years later, when a young trainer arrived after completing his own journey. Soon after this incident, Wolf was contracted by Steven Stone, and was trained in many areas, including combat, intelligence, and espionage. Stone, under the corrupting influence of 'M, brainwashed Wolf into becoming a member of his private army.

Recently, Wolf began receiving visions from Reshiram, which broke the hold Stone had over him. He joined up with the group in Unova, and helped take down his former master.

Since renouncing his former life, Wolf has fallen in love, been genderbent (twice), caught several new Pokémon, bought a book, invented a device that allows trainers to communicate with their Pokémon inside their Pokeballs, been Body Swapped, and befriended a Latias. Since Wolf is no longer a trainer, preferring a life of adventure to one of challenging Gyms, and is not registered with any Pokémon League, he is not bound by the six Pokémon rule, although he still keeps some Pokémon in a PC Box.

  • The Bus Came Back: After not being around from late Holon to Kalos, he returns to the J-Team in Almia during Ranger-2.

  • Gender Bender: Spent several days as a girl after the events of Twist Mountain.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After receiving visions from Reshiram and the Unown.
  • Locked into Strangeness: While it has been mentioned that others in the group dye their hair spectacular colours, Wolf's is a natural consequence of being born in Ecruteak City, where the aura of the nearby Legendary Pokémon can have strange effects.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Has admitted to only being interested in DS.

First got in contact with the J-Team when they had to defend their new airship, and is now focused on the battle against Illusion.

  • An Ice Person : Ramon the Delibird.
  • Dishing Out Dirt : Valkyrie the Rhyhorn and Sasori the Gligar.

     Zeal/Zachary Motte 

A trainer from Cianwood City who joined the J-Team in Olivine during Kanjoh-2. He's constantly searching for Fajro, his Quilava. The two were separated two years prior to Zeal's first appearance.

During Unova-2, it was revealed that Zeal is not the original Zachary Motte, and that the original Zach gave Zeal control so he could forget about Chase Espen, his cousin.

After a whole lot of Mind Screw and Split Personality shenanigans, most of Zeal's background still doesn't make a lot of sense.

These tropes apply to Zeal or all of his aspects:

  • Brother-Sister Team: With Lanie on more than one occasion.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: When it comes to almost anything. He actually is a lawyer, too, and his quirks are just as frequent in those situations.
  • Character Tics: Simply grins all the time.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: To some extent.
  • Ditzy Genius: Though not to the same extent as his sister.
  • Happily Failed Suicide: Tries to kill himself, but it doesn't work.
  • Hero of Another Story: His main character arc takes place mostly independently of the rest of the J-Team.
  • Eye Colour Change: When Zeal switches personalities, his eyes change color. Zeal's eyes are green, Zach's are blue, and RedEyes' are red.
  • Eye Scream: Loses his left eye during the Orre arc.
  • Split Personality: Has a bunch of them.
  • Troll: He's been called the "King of Trolls" before. Zach and RedEyes are also trolls to some extent, but they're much more subtle about it than Zeal is.

These tropes apply to the original Zachary Motte:
