Professor Benedict Age: DIRT Info: To call Professor Benedict a celebrity personality would be an understatement; 55 years ago, this man became a national hero for single-handedly thwarting a terrorist organization and becoming Regional Pokemon League Champion, both within the same month. Since then, he's stepped down from the spotlight somewhat; trading in his career as a Pokemon Trainer to become a Pokemon Researcher focusing on Pokemon Psychology. He's known for his boisterous nature, sharp intellect, and ruthless tactics as a duelist. Being chosen to work under him is considered an extremely prestigious opportunity, and he personally chooses from the applications for the candidates that he feels deserve it the most. His recent publications and research have focused on outbreaks of abnormal Pokemon behavior, and wild Pokemon moving out of their usual habitats and territory.

Ema Blintz Age: 23 Info: Formerly one of Professor Benedict's traveling aides, Ema now thinks of herself as the Professor's keeper, sticking around to keep any of his antics from spiraling too far out of control. While still in the field, she became quite accomplished in botany and the study of both Grass-Type Pokémon and berries. However, she became fed up with the Professor using the expensive equipment she purchased to analyze common apples rather than the exotic berries she sent home, so she returned to lab work to keep closer tabs on him.
Rumors that the university's insurance company paid her to transfer back to the lab are thus far unsubstantiated.
Moses Demetrius Melon Age: 23 Info: uwu
Professor Grit Age: DIRTER Info: Researches MEGA EVOS and ODD POKEMON MIGRATIONS
Alex Serabi Age: 19 Info: A native of Dahlia, Alexis Serabi comes from a family of athletes. With Mom being a personal trainer and Dad being a high school coach, it was little surprise that Alex ended up heavily involved in sports through her school years ; with the highlight being a regional gold medal for High School Martial Arts her senior year. After graduation she applied to be one of Professor's Grits aides to pursue her dream of competing in the regional martial arts circuit. Her family didn't have any Pokémon growing up, so her exposure to them is limited. Played By: zoofman Known Pokemon: Quentin the Lucario, Guillermo the murdersheep, Samuel the Furret
Lawrence Calas Age: 19 Info: A gentle giant from Ninebark who means well but is always somewhat on the oblivious side. He has a real penchant for grooming and fluffy Pokémon but doesn't have much experience with battle. While he's very physically capable, no one has ever seen how well he might hold up in a fight. Still, despite his apparent doofiness, there must be some reason why Dr. Grit hired him as a research aide, right?
Professor Bing Age: I'm old! Let me do what I want! Info: The irreverent Jennifer Bing plays double duty as a regional Pokémon Professor as well as the Ghost-Type Gym Leader of Widowgrass Town. The best answer anyone's gotten from her as to why she chose to double up on jobs with so much responsibility is a shrug and "mid-life crisis, I guess." Nonetheless, since becoming a Gym Leader, she's held her aides up to a high standard when it comes to their League participation and accomplishments.
Professor Bing received her PhD from the Madrona Institute of Technology for her work on Pokémon genetics. Her current research focuses on branching Pokémon evolutions as well as form changes and other non-evolution changes and variations in Pokémon.
Sue Daria Age: 18 Info: Hailing from a rich family in Dahlia City, Sue comes from a strict upbringing and has a good bit of attitude. She specializes in Dragon Pokemon, and has aspirations of competing in the Regional League. Played By: zoofman Known Pokemon: Gible, Mareep
Nena Pascal Type: Flying Balloon Age: 36 Info: The busy, busy, busy CEO of Santalune.com, Nena is known on the Gym Circuit for her brisk and exciting challenge and off the circuit for the ubiquitous presence of her online shopping company. She speaks at a rapid-fire pace, even and especially in the administration of her company, and she is known as a rather demanding taskmaster at times. Her company's well-known Drifloons and Rotom drones, an innovation she came up with, can be seen making deliveries in major cities across the region.
Marion van der Klein Type: Fairy Age: 39 Info: Marion lives deep in the woods, in the keep of a stone castle of his own construction. It's from here that he organizes his duties a Gym Leader, but perhaps more famously, spends many late nights writing - for he is the internationally famed author of the "Changeling" series, a supernatural young adult romance. In person, he is soft-spoken, straightforward, and very polite.
Nick Explosion Type: Fire Age: 32 Info: FORMER MARTIAL ARTS CIRCUIT THREE TIME HEAVY WEIGHT CHAMPION AND WATCHER ACADEMY HEADMASTER, NICK EXPLOSION IS KNOWN FOR KICKING ASS, PUTTING OUT (and starting) FIRES, AND BEING A LOUD ASS MOTHER HUBBER. HE'S WELL RESPECTED THROUGHOUT THE REGION, EVEN THE SNOBS WHO LOOK DOWN ON THE MARTIAL ARTS CIRCUITS, JUST DUE TO HIS EXTREMELY FRIENDLY ATTITUDE AND STRONG SENSE OF DUTY TO SERVE HIS REGION. Played By: zoofman Known Pokemon:
Serak Type: Ice Age: 36 Info: On the flip side of Nick, one of the most despised personalities in the Region by League officials and their dire hard fans, is Serak, a widely successful performing artist. He hosts his Gym Battles in his personally owned and operated club, Sub Zero. While he's never competed in it, Serak is a strong advocate for the Martial Arts Circuit deserving more respect from the general public. Most its participants are looked on in the same light as professional wrestlers, and don't believe that they deserve the same merits and praise as traditional duelists. His way of combating this stigma is largely through song and prose, and almost always with an overtly, bitter tone. That said, he's also got a very loyal fanbase, and a lot of powerful (like, literally, physically powerful) friends in the Circuit. Also to note - Benedict's got a good public relation with this guy, but most the details aren't widely known. Played By: zoofman Known Pokemon:
Professor Bing Type: Ghost Age: I'm old! Let me do what I want! Info: Also known for her position as a prominent Pokémon Professor in the region, Jennifer Bing currently runs her Gym Challenge on a small isolated island in the bay near Widowgrass. She has a tendency to change her challenge every few years out of boredom, often drawing from pop culture or her aides' interests for inspiration. Previous challenges have included a zombie-themed dance-off near the town's graveyard and a battle aboard a sinking ghost ship. One consistent point is that challengers often find her Gym to be an exhausting gauntlet.
Gwenwyn Slwch Type: Poison Age: 29 Info: Not too many years ago, Gwen Slwch was a promising scientist researching pathology, virology, and the effects of radiation on Pokemon and human DNA. She suddenly left the University, discontinued her research, and moved to Camas town to focus on private research. After some time as a recluse, she entered the public eye when she successfully petitioned to set up a new regional Gym in Camas Town, having somewhat ironically collected and trained a variety of Poison-Type Pokemon during her efforts to reduce the terrible pollution and industrial contamination around the city. She's known for her cool, even demeanor.
Anders Lundquist Type: Grass Age: Info: blah blah blah beer
Edea Rosenblum Type: Normal Age: 32 Info: Whereas many Gym Leaders pursue the career for fame and glory, Edea prefers to stay out of the limelight, focusing on other aspects of her role, such as mentoring promising Trainers and sponsoring League events and Pokémon research. Despite staying in the shadows, or perhaps because of it, she's well-liked by the other Leaders on the Circuit and frequently pays visits when her schedule is free of challengers. She has a love for antiques and maintains an extensive private collection in the same building as her Gym.
Craig "Rocky" Rashers Type: Ground Age: 55 Info: A veteran of the armed forces, Dr. Rashers retired from service to pursue his passions in archaeology, paleontology, and historical research. In addition to his station as a Gym Leader, he manages the Bitterbrush Museum of Natural History.
Mr. Jenks Type: Plastic Moe Age: 51 Info: Gregory Jenks is a very, very eccentric man. After retiring from a long career as a voice actor, and putting all his kids through college, he started competing in the League seriously. He had always been a contender on the side, always making sure to renew his badges when their expiration dates neared, but he'd never taken it really seriously until the last few years. Now, he is often found traveling the roads of the region, looking for cryptids and honing his skills for upcoming championships. Played By: zoofman Known Pokemon: Torterra, Camerupt, Sheepsquatch, Chupamareepa
Jackie Serebi Type: Water Age: 23 Info: Alex's Sister Played By: zoofman Known Pokemon: Judas himself
Caitlyn Leech Type: Fairy Age: 25 Info: One of Marion's most diligent Gym Trainers, Caitlyn was destined for a high-ranking position in her family business, but disenchantment with the family's politics led her to give up the opportunity and instead become a competitive Pokémon Trainer as she figures out what she wants to do with the rest of her life. She used to tend to the medical needs of the Leech ranches, and with her talents she could easily become an EMT or pursue further medical studies. But that kind of job is more erratic and taxing on her appearances than she'd like. She's also taken an interest in writing scripts for medical dramas since she began studying under Marion.
Misty Hayes Type: Ice Age: 19 Info: If you needed three words to describe Misty, you'd have to choose Flirtatious, curvaceous, and provocative. One of Serak's many Gym Trainers, Misty's actually a bar tender by trade. Many a man (and woman) have tried to woo this one, and failed! That said, many keen observers suspect the character she portrays is an act, because almost no one can claim to have seen her somewhere outside of work or League centric events.
Jeff Type: Fire Age: 20 Info: Shut the fuck up, Jeff
Robin Scarlet Type: Fire Age: 17 Info: Besides being a Witch, Robin is technically a Gym Trainer for the Aralia City Gym - and apparently the only one that isn't an active Ranger. Though Robin remains dedicated to using Fire-Type Pokemon, she mostly neglects her duties in favor of her occult research. Nick doesn't really seem to mind, and the two get along well.
Lisbeth Vermillion Type: Electric Age: 30 Info: Lisbeth seems to dabble - and excel - in all things science, having switched departments several times before settling on her final PhD program at Madrona. After working brief stints in research labs around the region, she has recently become one of the Gym Trainers in Madrona.
Rachel Kontrust Type: FreedomElectricNormalPoison Age: 18 Info: Rachel is the unluckiest Gym Trainer. Currently bouncing around several Gyms, she's got rotten luck with all of em.
Adara Wexler Type: Bug Age: Info: Played by: cast Known Pokemon:
Jun Wei Type: Bug Age: Info: Played by: cast Known Pokemon:
Vanya Aristov Age: 29 Info: Vanya made ripples in the League 10 years ago when he came to the region as an international student and blitzed the League challenge. However, he fell off the map for a few years, only to quietly reemerge as a League official and organizer. He's stoic but gets straight to the point whenever he speaks. Those who follow the League closely have an eye on him because of his great ambitions - both for himself and for the League. His successes in expanding League events have earned him quick promotions.
Sandy Winters Age: 18 Info: An active, clever, and excitable girl with an interest in geology and penchant for getting into trouble due to her insatiable curiosity. Her battling style is fast-paced and centers on strategically swapping Pokémon to her advantage. She's also a skillful artisan when working with crystal Shards and makes potent items for her Pokémon to use in battle.
Sven Lundquist Age: 17 Info: Sven Lundquist loves coffee. He really loves coffee. He also likes feeling smart and like he's part of an exclusive group appreciating something most people cannot. In short, he's a hipster. Sven prefers Normal-Type Pokémon, viewing them as underappreciated by other Trainers and thus allowing him to feel a warm sense of smugness at his team choice. He's a pretty nice guy, despite all this.
His family lives in Dahlia now, where they run a small record shop and cafe called the Wailing Whismur, and they have a strong rivalry with their cousins who run the most famous brewery in Littlerose City - and the Pokémon Gym there as well!
Naomi Sharp Age: 17 Info: Naomi is cripplingly shy; she lets her brother Noah do most of the talking. Despite her withdrawn and fragile nature, she's a committed Pokemon Trainer that is hoping to compete both in the League battles and the Dueling Club. Despite her personality, her battling style is pretty outgoing and brutal - she relies on an all-out offense! The Attack and Special Attack of her Pokemon are through the roof! She's Noah's twin sister. Known Pokemon: Machop, Snover
Noah Sharp Age: 17 Info: Where Naomi is shy and withdrawn, Noah is cheerful, emotive, and flamboyant! Extremely flamboyant. Like his twin sister, he's a dedicated Pokemon Battler; unlike her however, he uses a defensive style to outlast his opponents!
Rake Age: 18 Info: Who is Rake, really? No one very important. Yet. But oh, he's determined to be! He doesn't have much in the way of social graces, or intelligence, or personality, or kindness, or…. well, the point is what he DOES have is an uncrushable will and a high tolerance for pain. He pushes his Pokemon partners hard, and pushes himself even harder - he'll do anything to achieve his goals. Known Pokemon: Riolu, Noivern
Xavier Simit Age: 27 Info: A traveling botanist and Pokemon Trainer, Xavier has already gathered all eight badges that he needs to participate in the league this year. So until the competition begins, he's traveling looking for rare Pokemon and things to train against. Played By: zoofman Known Pokemon: Whimsicott, Maractus
Watcher Lenny Age: 47 Info: The head Watcher in Hollyhock, Lenny is extremely friendly and has quite a few odd catch phrases. He finds the behavior of most the rural population very quaint, and honestly doesn't have the manpower to support them with the issues they do face as much as he'd like to. Played By: zoofman
Grandma Lou Age: DIRT Info: Once a travel companion of Benedict in their youths, Grandma Lou is well known in Hollyhock as a strong conservation advocate, historian, and netizen. A long term campaigner against the moonshine that is distilled out in the rurals of Greypine, Lou's got quite a few enemies in the region. But being an experienced, accomplished Trainer, this sassy lady is more than capable of handling them on her own. Played By: zoofman Known Pokemon: Bisharp
Alice Rhasha Age: 22 Info: Artist, musician, and Caribbean trouble maker, DJ Rhasha has built up quite the following in the more party heavy cities in the region for her work. She has recently taken on a huge interest in Unown, and trying to incorporate them into her performances. This has attracted the attention of quite a few academics as well, since the critters aren't well documented in the Sequoia Region. Seems where she's from, they don't have the same public image. Played By: zoofman Known Pokemon: Shiva the Galvantula, all the Unown
Ellis Montgomery Reinhold III Age: 19 Info: Ellis is a traveling Adventurer and Treasure-Hunter. When he gets excited, his accent can fluctuate wildly, sounding like either a southern drawl or a European accent. He claims to be from a line of nobility, but these claims are so far unknown. He's rather eccentric looking, seeing as he wears metal armor and carries around a large sword in this day and age - but at least it seems he's quite good at using them. Overall he seems to be friendly, competent, and brave, if somewhat hare-brained. Known Pokemon: Sir Windmere the Lickitung
Irene Luna Age: 17 Info: Irene is confident but soft-spoken, cautious but prone to overreaction. She is the beloved daughter of Christoph, the Luna family patriarch, who has kept an especially watchful eye over her ever since she was grievously injured in the frenzied Bellossom incident last year. Not overly fond of attention, Irene intentionally keeps a low profile despite her prodigious talent for understanding Pokémon and her near-photographic memory. She is fiercely loyal to her family and spends much of her free time checking up on their various ranches and the locals who own Luna family Pokémon.
Robin Scarlet Age: 17 Info: Scarlet is a self-professed Witch, potion-brewer, and alchemist. They seem to specialize in powers related to Fire, as well as in raising Fire-Type Pokemon. They are full of secrets. Known Pokemon: Beryl the Charmander, Krampus the Torkoal, Ember the Larvesta.
Highlight Age: ??? Info: Sue Daria's mysterious…bodyguard? Caries a Samurai Sword. Very odd individual. Loves coconuts. Played By: zoofman Known Pokemon: Captain Ruffles the Braviery, "Mr Pinchy"
Paula, Emily, and Tricia Vilhjalmsson Age: 19, 23, 25 Info: Paula (pictured center), Emily (pictured left), and Tricia (pictured right) - more commonly known as the PET sisters - run a well known Pokemon Care business, situated in Widowgrass Town. They provide a wide range of Pokemon services ranging from nutrition to tutoring, but are perhaps best known for their skills as Pokemon Sommeliers.
Professor Blumenthal Age: 47 Info: Professor Blumenthal teaches robotics at the Madrona Institute of Technology, and he's also in charge of the robot combat arena in the basement of the building. He and Lawrence are good friends, though he's still a bit sour that Lawrence chose to pursue a path as a research aide instead of attending MIT to study robotics.
Franz Dreher Age: ??? Info: No one knows how long he's been stuck in PhD limbo or why the university lets him stay on this long. He's a mechanical engineer, though he's best known for his custom-engraved Poké Balls, which have drawn the admiration of students all over campus.
Kevin Jones Age: 18 Info: Kevin is a recently let off lumberjack ninja from Hardhack. He applied to be one of Benedict's aides, and wasn't selected. He's been wandering the northern part of the Region looking for work, or something to do for a while. Really hates hippies. Played By: zoofman Known Pokemon: Timburr, Frogedier
Astrid Eriksen Age: 19 Info: An avid thrill-seeker and finder-of-trouble, Astrid is friends with Ellis and shares his love of adventure and other eccentricities, such as the short sword she carries. She's a Dahlia native and loves the city but spends most of her days traveling all across the region, apparently in search of particularly old Pokémon.
Known Pokemon: Lampent, Zweilous, Xatu

Ben Phan Age: 19 Info: A ruthless blogger who claws at every opportunity to gain e-fame and a chance at the limelight. Ben is unapologetic about his methods and will do Whatever It Takes to get a good story. Played By: cast
Tsubasa Age: 19 Info: Tsubasa is a spacey girl from Kanto who excels at cooking with the power of SCIENCE. She's easily identified by her oversized hat and the advanced hoverbike she uses to wander the region. While she (unsurprisingly) makes somewhat of a home base in Madrona, Tsubasa spends much of her time wandering the region for various purposes, such as starring in Heatran's Kitchen with Adrienne or simply taking on odd jobs as a Trainer. Is absolutely disgusted by Vicky and refuses to step foot in that Gym again after winning her badge, despite her obvious potential as a Gym Trainer candidate. Played by: cast Known Pokemon: Ace the Rotom, King the Golem, Yaku the Cyclohm, Chariot the Aggron

Vincent Lee Type: Poison Age: 29 Info: A serious and stoic man, Vincent is both a researcher in Gwenwyn's labs and one of her senior Gym Trainers. He is known as 'Doctor Stitches' by the underground battling scene in the city, for whom he acts as a street doctor. Played By: cast Known Pokémon: Amoonguss Fate: DEAD
Victoria "Vicky" Brown Type: Electric Age: 29 Info: Victoria has a somewhat ill repute among the regional gym leaders - her gym is a rat-infested dump, closes often, and she hardly puts any effort into personally training Gym Trainers. She openly flaunts the fact that her position as Gym Leader means little to her, and that her true love is robotics - in fact, Vicky uses her considerable knowledge of advanced robotics to automate as much of her Gym as possible in order to free up her time, even going as far as creating difficult and unpleasant 'tests' to gain her audience. Nevertheless, she is a strict and dedicated trainer that has repeatedly proven to be one of the most formidable Gym Leaders in the league. Fate: DEAD
