ALSO, CHECK OUT MY COMMUNITY. THERE ARE A LOT OF GREAT STORIES
Hey there! My name is El Torro and I like to write, read other fan fictions, play video games, and watch TV
Favorite Videogames: Pokemon (except gen V, there wasn't much I liked about that), Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Legend of Zelda, and anything fairly strategic (like Fire Emblem, even though I've never played any of the games)
Favorite movies: Old School, Wedding Crashers, Your Highness, and BASEketball
Favorite T.V shows: South Park, Family guy, MLB tonight, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother (before the last two seasons), and Two and a Half Men when Charlie Sheen was a part of the cast
Favorite Cartoons: Pokemon (Indigo League-Sinnoh League Victors, and then XY. I personally hated the Unova region), Johnny Test, SpongeBob, Jimmy Neutron, and The Fairly Oddparents
Favorite Books: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie, Coraline by Neil Gaiman, 1984 by George Orwell, and Lord of the Flies by William Golding. These are the only books I've enjoyed reading in my 15 years of living, so if there's a book that you think is really good let me know!
My other hobbies include hanging out with my friends, working out, and listening to music. At the moment I'm 15 and will be turning 16 in a couple months, so I've got a lot of work to do with my writing skills. For any readers that will be checking out my stories, skip to Sinnoh Adventure if you want to see my better writing. Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn were all completely rushed and I had no concept of punctuation or adding details. I've thought about rewriting those, but I'd prefer to look back at this website one day and see how much I've progressed as a writer.

Pokemon Kanto Adventure
Main Character: Owen Plateau
Appearance: Owen is 4'11" at the start of his journey, which lasts approximately 12 months/1 year. Owen has dark blonde hair, amber eyes, and tan skin. During his time in Kanto, he wore a blue t-shirt, a pair of black basketball shorts, and black basketball shoes.
Background Info: He is the only child, and neither of his parents were trainers. He lived down the street from his main rival, Burt Oak, whom he despises. Owen's goal is to one day become the Champion of Kanto (or any region), and eventually the World Champion. The World Champion is a Champion who challenges and defeats the other five champions before being recognized as the world's strongest trainer.
Owen's Kanto Pokemon
Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard: Charizard was Owen's starting Pokemon and Owen's most powerful. When he was a Charmander, he was a skilled battler and evolved in a gym battle against Brock's Onix. During his gym battle against Misty, Charmeleon fell into the water of the battlefield and he had to be nursed back to health. Charmeleon often was Owen's go to Pokemon along with Nidoking, helping Owen to victory more often than not. Charmeleon evolved into a Charizard during a battle with Burt's Pidgeot on the S.S Anne. As a Charizard, he was the main powerhouse for Owen's team by winning countless battles. Charizard eventually returned in Johto and saved Owen from the Red Gyarados at The Lake of Rage. During his brief time in Johto, Charizard would only battle when necessary. He managed to take down two of Roland's Pokemon before fainting from his own Seismic Toss during Owen's Top 16 battle. Shortly after the Silver Conference concluded, Charizard went back to Professor Oak's lab where he waited to be called on again, which happened when Owen reached the Unova League. Charizard is also accompanying Owen through Kalos.

Nidoran/Nidorino/Nidoking: Nidoking was the first Pokemon Owen captured, and one of the more powerful Pokemon Owen had. As a Nidoran, he was never overwhelmingly powerful but he was strong enough to take down Brock's Onix to win Owen his first ever gym badge. Nidoran evolved during a battle with a strange man in Mt. Moon over who got to have a prehistoric fossil. As a Nidorino, he won a few battles, but quickly evolved into Nidoking when he accidentally grabbed a Moon Stone from Owen's backpack. Nidoking was a valuable asset to Owen's team and a strong battler, never giving up during any matches. He proved time and time again that he could be relied upon, similarly to Venasaur.
Obtained in Chapter 2: Owen Catches a Pokemon
Evolved in Chapter 7: Mt. Moon Disaster
Evolved in Chapter 10: Nugget Bridge
Kabuto/Kabutops: Owen received Kabutops when he was merely just a fossil. After Professor Oak restored restored him back to life, Kabutops was a Kabuto. As a Kabuto, he was a fairly decent battler, and evolved into a Kabutops trying to protect Owen from a Hyper Beam while the group was trapped at Seafoam Island. Kabutops was a strong Pokemon and helped Owen win various battles in gyms and at the Indigo league. He is also the only fossilized Pokemon Owen has had.
Obtained in Chapter 7: Mt. Moon Disaster
Evolved in Chapter 27: Seafoam Island Exploration
Bulbasaur/Ivysaur/Venasaur: Owen received Venasaur from a young woman when he was a Bulbasaur. Bulbasaur quickly proved his strength when he won a few battles at Nugget Bridge. He then evolved into an Ivysaur during a gym battle against Misty, which helped Owen win his second badge. As an Ivysaur, he became one of the more frequently used Pokemon on Owen's team. Ivysaur evolved during another gym battle, this time against the grass master, Erika. After Owen won, he left Venasaur behind to train with Erika. Venasaur was brought back right before the start of the Indigo League and helped Owen make a deep run in the tournament, showing that his training with Erika had paid off.
Obtained in Chapter 9: 4 vs 4 Rival Battle!
Evolved in Chapter 12: Swimming in Rough Waters
Evolved in Chapter 20: Releasing the Beast
Squirtle/Wartortle: wartortle was the trouble maker in the group for quite some time. While Owen and Fate were walking towards Vermillion city, they heard screams from a house, so they walked into the Pokemon Daycare center. The man who ran the place ordered for Owen to get rid of the Squirtle, who was defeated in battle by Ivysaur. Owen captured Wartortle, but he proved to be a handful when he started a fight with Burt's Wartortle and when he wouldn't listen to any command Owen gave him. After he was defeated by his old trainer who released him, Wartortle began listening to Owen and became a powerhouse. He eventually evolved into Wartortle when battling Leon's (his old trainer) Blastoise at the Indigo League.
Obtained in Chapter 13: Venturing to Vermillion
Evolved in Chapter 36: Round 4 Owen vs Leon!
Alakazam: At first, Alakazam was an Abra owned by Burt. The first two battles Owen and Burt had, Alakazam was defeated in the blink of an eye, prompting Burt to trade him to Owen for his Drowzee while Alakazam was a Kadabra. The trade resulted in Alakazam evolving, and he was a solid addition to Owen's team. Alakazam was primarily used as a defensive stopper by using Light Screen so that his teammates would be protected later in battle.
Obtained in Chapter 14: All Aboard!
Cubone/Marowak: When Owen caught Marowak, he was a Cubone. The ground type appeared in the middle of a practice battle between Owen and Fate, which prompted Owen to catch him. Marowak was a reliable Pokemon, and it was later found out that the Marowak in Pokemon Tower was his mother. He later evolved during a battle in the dojo of Saffron city. As a Marowak, he won plenty of battles for Owen and proved to be a strong fighter that was also extremely acrobatic.
Obtained in Chapter 17: Competitive Cubone
Evolved in Chapter 25: The Battle Dojo
Tauros: While playing the Safari Zone game, Owen accidentally hit a Tauros with a rock. Owen threw a Pokeball at the angry normal type and luckily caught him. After some off camera issues arose, Owen was being chased down by a group of Tauros. He called out his Tauros, who turned out to be the leader of the heard, and the oxen protected his new trainer. Tauros was one of the strongest Pokemon that Owen had during his time in Kanto, and he won a gym battle against Janine. Tauros is arguably Owen's physically strongest Pokemon.
Obtained in Chapter 22: Taming the Tauros
Hitmonchan: Hitmonchan never really battled that much, but when he did he usually lost. Serving as the worst Pokemon on Owen's team, he rarely saw the battlefield.
Obtained in Chapter 25: The Battle Dojo
Growlithe/Arcanine: Owen found Arcanine when he was just a Growlithe in the abandoned Cinnabar mansion. Arcanine quickly displayed his power when he went toe to toe with Blaine's Charizard, and won Owen the Volcano Badge even though it was only his first battle. Arcanine evolved during the Indigo League against Leon's Blastoise when a fan threw a Fire Stone on to the field, and Arcanine (at the time a Growlithe) picked it up. As an Arcanine, his strength increased, and he almost managed to defeat two of Vincent's Pokemon in Owen's quarterfinal battle, but was subdued by Vincent's Umbreon.
Obtained in Chapter 29: The Cinnabar Mansion
Evolved in Chapter 36: Round 4 Owen vs Leon!
CJ: Owen and Fate met CJ when they were wandering around Celadon city. CJ and Owen had a battle, if Owen won then CJ would travel with him. Owen was destroyed, only defeating two of CJ's Pokemon. CJ is a powerful trainer, and acts as the parent figure in the group. He is also the eldest of the group (excluding Janine.) CJ is from Battler127's story CJ's Pokemon Adventure's. (Read his story and it'll explain why CJ has a strange departure at the end of Kanto)
Janine: While in Fuchsia city, Owen accidentally hit int Janine, and they instantly had a liking for one another. Owen managed to defeat Janine for his fifth gym badge, but they met up again while on the way for Owen's seventh gym badge at Cinnabar Island. She tried to save Owen when he was kidnapped at Seafoam Island, but she was unable to save him. Janine hasn't been announced to be Owen's girlfriend, but it can be assumed. Janine is 13 years old. Janine was later found to be the Masked Trainer, who tried to kill Owen during Johto and Hoenn.
Pokemon Johto Adventure
Main Character: Owen Plateau
Appearance: Standing at 5'2", Owen wears a black hoodie and a pair of blue athletic shorts along with his black basketball shoes from Kanto. Owen's hair is dark blonde and he has amber eyes. His skin begins to tan more during his travels due to the exposure to the sun.
Background Info: Owen leaves for Johto after his loss in the Indigo League (Kanto). He leaves all of his Pokemon from his previous adventure behind in order to hone his skills as a trainer while also becoming friends with the Pokemon he captures.
Owen's Johto Pokemon:
Totodile/Croconaw/Feraligatr: After leaving Kanto, Owen chose Totodile to help escort him to Mr. Pokemon's house, where they got a mysterious egg. After returning, it appeared that Totodile took a liking to Owen which lead to him becoming Owen's starter for the Johto region. Totodile evolved into Croconaw during a gym battle against Bugsy's Pinsir. Croconaw proved to be a reliable Pokemon, but was never a powerhouse. Croconaw later evolved into Feraligatr when Team Rocket tried to steal everybody's Pokemon. Feraligatr was a major powerhouse to Owen's team, and was always outside of his Pokeball. He always had a huge personality, and adopted a few of Owen's mannerisms and seemed to look up to Charizard and his power.
Obtained in Chapter 2: The Mysterious Egg
Evolved in Chapter 11: Bug Battle with Bugsy
Evolved in Chapter 19: The Moo Moo Milk Thief
Hoothoot/Noctowl: Noctowl was the first wild Pokemon that Owen and Totodile met in Johto,and eventually became the second Pokemon on Owen's team. Noctowl was a reliable Pokemon and was called upon for several battles later on Owen's journey. Noctowl evolved in Ilex Forest when Owen's team got captured by Team Rocket. Noctowl was a very good battler, but didn't battle as much as others. He proved to be one of Owen's stronger Pokemon when he defeated Pryce's Dewgong to win Owen his seventh gym badge.
Obtained in Chapter 3: Clobbering Caleb
Evolved in Chapter 12: Intruders in Ilex Forest
Cyndaquil/Quilava/Typhlosion: When Owen was in Violet city, Professor Elm's Cyndaquil followed him there. Owen decided to take in the fire type, which quickly proved to be a smart move on Owen's part, when the fire starter helped win several badges. While he was a Cyndaquil, he evolved into Quilava when Owen and Mint were attacked by Lucy when they first met. However, Quilava was quickly defeated by Lucy's Luxray, Silly, and was used often. Shortly after, he evolved into Typhlosion when the masked trainer's Groudon attacked him and Bayleef. Both Pokemon evolved and were saved by Entei, Raikou, and Suicune. Typhlosion is considered by many (all you readers) to be a powerhouse.
Obtained in Chapter 5: Sprout Tower and the Mysterious Pokemon
Evolved in Chapter 9: Slowpoke Well
Evolved in Chapter 26: The Destruction of Olivine
Heracross: As Owen and Mint went through Union Cave, they were warned about a powerful Pokemon that lived there. After searching for the Pokemon, they thought the trainers lied, but surely enough, a Heracross chased Owen out of the cave. After capture, Heracross was one of the stronger Pokemon on Owen's team. He was usually switched with Pokemon at Professor Oak's. However, when he was around Heracross was used in physical fights, and more often than not he was victorious.
Obtained in Chapter 8: The Pokemon of Union Cave!
Chikorita/Bayleef/Meganium: Owen searched through Ilex forest after being told about a strong Chikorita. Mint and Lucy told him to give up, but Owen was fixated on getting that Chikorita. After hours of looking, he finally encountered Meganium, but she was stolen by Team Rocket along with Croconaw, Quilava, and Heracross. After rescuing her, she joined Owen's team, and was used in many battles. When she evolved into Bayleef, she contributed greatly to Owen's team. As a Meganium, she acted almost like a replacement to Owen's Venasaur, often using Vine Whip and Solarbeam to subdue her opponents.
Obtained in Chapter 12: Intruders In Ilex Forest
Evolved in Chapter 14: Goldenrod gym
Evolved in Chapter 26: The Destruction of Olivine
Larvitar/Pupitar/Tyranitar: Originally a member of Team Rocket when he was a Larvitar, Tyranitar was a powerful Pokemon. He wasn't used much once he became a Pupitar, but he proved to be a strong contributor. When he evolved, Tyranitar obliterated his foe at the Silver Conference, but he wasn't used again. If Pupitar had evolved earlier, Tyranitar would've been the main powerhouse behind Owen's team.
Obtained in Chapter 12: Intruders In Ilex Forest
Evolved in Chapter 24: The Olivine Tournament Ceremony
Evolved in Chapter 35: Round 1 Owen vs Derek Fairley
Lickitung: Owen received Lickitung as an egg from Fate after he beat her in battle on his way to Goldenrod city. Lickitung seemed to be a very clumsy and stupid Pokemon when he hatched, so Owen sent him to Professor Oak's lab to train with the other Pokemon. Owen brought him back for the eighth gym, where he defeated Clair's final Pokemon and earned Owen his final badge. Lickitung was one of the strongest and most valuable Pokemon when he returned, especially when he defeated Clair's Dragonite and earned Owen his final badge. However, he was easily defeated by Roland's Squirtle during their battle at the Silver Conference.
Hatched in Chapter 18: Entei and the Egg!
Elekid/Electabuzz: Owen traded for Electabuzz when he was just an Elekid, which cost Owen his Sudowoodo. The electric type hated Owen for a while until Owen stuck up for him when CJ advised that Elekid should be released. Electabuzz was a major contributor and an asset to Owen's team because of his love for battling. He loved hand to hand combat, but he also had a decent distant assault with a powerful Thunderbolt. Electabuzz and Roland's Squirtle didn't seem to get along very much because of Squirtle whooping Electabuzz.
Traded for in Chapter 16: Rival Roland Appears!
Evolved in Chapter 23: Weathering the Storm for a Storm Badge!
Gyarados: When Owen, Mint, and Lucy were told of a storm while they were venturing to Mahogany town they immediately headed for the Lake of Rage. None of Owen's Pokemon were strong enough to stop the powerful Pokemon, except for Charizard, who returned to venture with Owen. Gyarados played a small but pivotal role in Johto, helping Owen succeed in his run at the Silver Conference. Gyarados has plenty of powerful moves including a destructive Hydro Pump.
Obtained in Chapter 28: Lake of Rampage (fixed)
Dratini: Dratini was not used in any battles, and did not play a role in Johto Adventure. For description, look at Hoenn Adventure.
Obtained in Chapter 32: The Final Gym Battle
Suicune: The legendary beast immediately took a liking to Owen, and the two constantly encountered one another. After Owen arrived home in Pallet before the Silver Conference, Suicune requested to join Owen, but was stopped by Entei. Angered by this, Owen challenged Entei to a duel, which Entei accepted. Charizard defeated Entei handily, and Suicune joined the team along with Entei and Raikou. Suicune was used in Owen's battle against Caleb, and the legendary beast obliterated Caleb.
Obtained in Chapter 33: A Crazy Vacation! Charizard vs Entei!
Entei & Raikou: They allowed Owen to capture them, so that they could stay with Suicune, neither were mentioned after capture.
Obtained in Chapter 33: A Crazy Vacation! Charizard vs Entei
Lucy: When she first met Owen and Mint, things did not look good. Lucy thought that they were the people who stole the Slowpoke's from Azalea town, even though they constantly told her that they didn't. Lucy was very hotheaded, much like Fate, and even though she was 14, she seemed to be much more naive than Owen.
Pokemon Hoenn Adventure
Main Character: Owen Plateau
Appearance: Owen stands at 5'5", and he has dark blonde hair, amber eyes, and tan skin. Owen begins to develop more muscles at this time and his face also matures, making him look much older than his age.
Background Info: After losing in the Silver Conference (Johto), Owen heads for Hoenn. While there, Owen aims to win the Ever Grande Conference while befriending many more Pokemon. Owen's skills as a trainer continue to progress at a rapid rate, and he wins many battles against his rivals. Despite this, he falters early in the Ever Grande Conference.
Owen's Hoenn Pokemon:
Treecko/Grovyle/Sceptile: As a Treecko he was randomly picked by Owen when he had to save Professor Birch from a wild Poochyena. At first, Sceptile appeared to be a skilled fighter and a happy Pokemon, which he was. When he evolved into Grovyle, he began to distance himself from the group, but acted like the leader at times. He also seemed to mimic Owen and his quirks when none of the other Pokemon were around. During the Lavaridge tournament, Sceptile battled against May's Blaziken and evolved after Blaziken burnt his favorite twig. Sceptile is incredibly fast and has strong attacks, which helped him become one of Owen's powerhouses for the Hoenn region. He and Zangoose also appear to be rivals, and he also doesn't get along with Swellow. Sceptile later returned to Owen's team for his semifinal battle in the Sinnoh League, where he helped guide Owen to victory.
Obtained in Chapter 1: Goin to Hoenn
Evolved in Chapter 6: Rocky Roxanne
Evolved in Chapter 21: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Grovyle
Taillow/Swellow: As Owen was going to the Petalburg forest, a wild Taillow attacked Treecko. Taillow seemed to be a very independent Pokemon that was a great battler and very hard-headed, causing fights between him and Treecko/Grovyle/Sceptile. Even when Sceptile was about to be taken by Maxie, Swellow refused to help out his rival. When Taillow evolved into Swellow, he easily defeated a group of Mawile that were attacking a defenseless Aron. Swellow is a strong Pokemon and a solid member of Owen's team, and he never tried to help Treecko/Grovyle/Sceptile until Owen's third battle against Liza and Tate. After the battle, Swellow and Sceptile went back to hating each other.
Obtained in Chapter 3: Petalburg Woods
Evolved in Chapter 9: Searching for Steven
Nincada/Ninjask (returned): Ninjask was found injured by Owen as a Nincada, and he healed the bug type. Ninjask helped defeat a Team Magma grunt's Poochyena, and joined Owen's team afterwards. He eventually evolved into a Ninjask during Owen's second gym battle against Brawly's Machop. Ninjask battled, and later defeated a Skarmory who was chasing after a group of Ninjask during the Lavaridge tournament. Seing that the group needed a leader, Owen released Ninjask to protect the group. Ninjask returned in Mosdeep when Owen battled Archie outside the Space Center. Ninjask grew much stronger after becoming the leader of the wild Ninjask, and was a very reliable Pokemon for Owen.
Obtained in Chapter 4: The Pokemon Theif
Evolved in Chapter 10: Brawly vs Owen
Left in Chapter 22: A Major Loss
Returned in Chapter 40: Saving the Space Station!
Whismur/Loudred/Exploud (returned): Exploud was captured by Owen when it randomly attacked him and the other Pokemon on the outskirts of Rustboro city. As a Whismur, he became more outgoing after he battled, and it carried over ever since. Then, he evolved during a battle with May's Combusken when he was a Whismur, and he won. Exploud is a very loud Pokemon, and powerful too. His Hyper Voice attack is devastating and can knock a foe out in one hit. He was given to Norman for training but returned in time for the Sootopolis gym battle, which he wound up winning.
Obtained in Chapter 5: The Third Organization Appears!
Evolved in Chapter 12: The Power of a Whismur
Returned in Chapter 51: The Sootopolis Gym!
Evolved in Chapter 53: Sootopolis city Finale!
Aron/Lairon/Aggron: Owen caught Aggron as an Aron after he defended him from a wild group of Mawile. As an Aron, he showed his strength during a gym battle against Watson, knocking out his Magnemite, Magneton, and even holding his own against Manectric. During the Lavaridge tournament, when he was an Aron, he wasn't able to attack because of being afraid of the crowd. After becoming comfortable, Aggron did major damage to May's Blaziken. Aggron evolved during a battle with Brian's Lucario, which helped him become a prominent member of Owen's team. As a Lairon, Aggron evolved against CJ in the Mosdeep semifinals, easily defeating his Snorlax. Aggron showed a ridiculous amount of strength, but he'd always go into a rampage whenever he was hit by an attack. He eventually gained control of himself in the battle versus Brian's Lucario in the Top 16 of the Ever Grande Conference
Obtained in Chapter 9: Searching for Steven
Evolved in Chapter 23: Monster Evolution
Evolved in Chapter 41: An Epic Showdown of Mass Proportions!
Dratini/Dragonair/Dragonite: Owen brought Dragonite back to Hoenn as a Dratini because he felt that she deserved to be on an adventure in which she actually battled. Dragonite proved to be one of Owen's strongest Pokemon in the countless battles she battled in. She really became one of Owen's strongest when she was able to take down Winona's Swellow in his first battle against the flying type gym leader, when none of Owen's other Pokemon could. Dragonite then evolved during Owen's rematch with Steven. Even though she didn't win a battle in the Ever Grande Conference, Dragonite was still an instrumental part to Owen's success.
Returned in Chapter 11: The Masked Trainer Reappears!
Evolved in Chapter 31: Dratini Takes Flight
Evolved in Chapter 48: Owen vs Steven! The Rematch!
Electrike/Manectric: Owen caught Manectric as an Electrike after Watson told him to catch a new Pokemon for their gym battle. Manectric has been shown to be a vital part to Owen's team, beating Andy's Ampharos and Watson's Manectric. Manectric and Owen also seem to have an understanding of one another, which will allow Manectric to thrive when given the opportunity. Manectric has many powerful attacks at his disposal including Thunderbolt, and he is blindingly fast.
Obtained in Chapter 13: A New Threat Rises
Evolved in Chapter 20: Training Day, Owen vs Alice
Zangoose: After Swellow refused to rescue Sceptile, Owen seemed as though he would lose his starting Pokemon. Luckily, Zangoose saved the day and didn't try to attack Owen and Lillian. Zangoose has a large scar across his left eye because of Trent trying to kill him. After Zangoose had flashbacks abut Team Aria scarring his eye, Owen suggested for the powerful Pokemon to join him. Zangoose decided to battle Sceptile (at the time Grovyle) to see if Owen was a worthy trainer, which he deemed him as. Zangoose wins under his belt during his time with Owen, most notably against Xavier in the Sinnoh League semifinals when he defeated Xavier's Infernape to send Owen to the championship. Zangoose is one of the three strongest Pokemon Owen has owned, and also has a rivalry with Sceptile. Zangoose also rejoined Owen for his semifinal battle against Xavier in Sinnoh, where he defeated Xavier's Infernape to win the battle for Owen.
Obtained in Chapter 17: Grovyle vs Zangoose!
Skarmory: Owen met Skarmory when he was attacking a group of Ninjask. He was able to defeat Swellow easily, but was clobbered by Owen's Ninjask. Skarmory also defeated Brian's Aeordactyl, Predator, with a Toxic and Spikes combo. Owen uses Skarmory as a status inflicting Pokemon to annoy his opponents. Skarmory eventually became much stronger and was relied on heavily during the later stages of Owen's journey.
Obtained in Chapter 22: A Major Loss
Torkoal: Owen met Torkoal while he was searching for a twig for Sceptile during the Lavaridge tournament. Torkoal was being chased after by Skarmory along with a wild group of Ninjask. Torkoal seems to be a decent battler, defeating Brendan's Medicham and learning Flamethrower in its first battle with Owen. Torkoal was used as a wall to prevent Owen's opponents from winning a battle quickly, and he won Owen his first battle at the Ever Grande Conference.
Obtained in Chapter 22: A Major Loss
Marshtomp/Swampert: While at the Lavaridge hot springs, Owen was attacked by a wild Marshtomp. The Marshtomp defeated Dratini, but was subdued by Loudred. After being defeated by Loudred, the Marshtomp asked to join Owen, and he did. Swampert seems to be enthusiastic about battling, as shown when he flexed before and after battle, and when he saluted to Owen. Swampert evolved during training because he felt that the other Pokemon were much stronger than him, and he wanted to show his worth by evolving. Swampert really proved he was arguably Owen's strongest Pokemon in Hoenn when he managed to defeat Steven's Aggron, two of Wallace's Pokemon, and holding his own against Predator and Rina. Swampert was also brought back to Owen's team for the semifinals in the Sinnoh League, where he helped Owen defeat Xavier.
Obtained in Chapter 25: Hot Springs Showdown!
Evolved in Chapter 33: A True Aerial Spectacle
Absol: While traveling to Fortree city, Owen was stopped by an Absol that thought he was the reason for disturbances in the area. Swellow didn't defeat Absol because he left the battle. Then when Owen went to the Weather Institute he battled Trent, and was about to watch Zangoose die, but Absol saved them just in time with a Razor Wind. Absol managed to be the hero in Owen's rematch against Winona by easily subduing her Altaria. Absol seems to have a very serious personality.
Obtained in Chapter 32: The Showdown On the Bridge
Andy: While Owen, Alice, Brendan, and May were traveling to Mauville city, Andy was hired by Trent, the leader of Team Aria. His job was to capture/kill Owen, which would make Team Aria's job much easier. However, the 15 year old was defeated by Owen and his team of three, consisting of Swellow, Grovyle, and Electrike. After he lost, Trent stepped in and was about to battle Andy until he realized that he was outnumbered 5 to 1, so he left. Andy seems to be very lazy and unmotivated, which is why he decided to travel around Hoenn. He and Alice seem to talk to each other more than they do with Owen and Lillian, mainly because of their ages.
Lillian: While the group was headed for Fallarbor town, they were stopped by a group of Team Magma grunts who appeared to be up to no good. After Owen's Ninjask defeated the head grunt's Skarmory, Lillian was found laying on the ground. She was quickly asked to travel with the group when Alice heard that she was from Sinnoh. Lillian is quiet, she has black hair and a red bow, and she is 13 years old.
Pokemon Sinnoh Adventure
Main Character: Owen Plateau
Appearance: Owen shoots up to 5'10" while his body begins to transition into adulthood. His dark blonde hair and amber eyes remain unchanged, but his skin is slightly lighter due to the snowy climates in Sinnoh.
Background Info: Owen leaves for Sinnoh after a disappointing run in the Ever Grande Conference, hoping to redeem himself and finally live up to his own expectations. On his way to the Sinnoh League, Owen befriends many powerful Pokemon with different personalities. Owen's Pokemon in Sinnoh have a very close relationship with the exception of Garchomp and Infernape, who dislike each other greatly.
Owen's Sinnoh Pokemon:
Chimchar/Monferno/Infernape: Infernape is Owen's starter for the Sinnoh region and one of his strongest Pokemon. Generally, he is Owen's go to Pokemon when things get serious, or when Owen needs to win a battle. He evolved into monferno during Owen's rematch against Roark, dominating his Cranidos. Infernape has already faced tough opponents such as Kane's Chimchar and Nick's Chimchar (who has a surfboard). He then evolved into Infernape during a double battle against Pon's Magmar and Aerodactyl. Ever since evolving, Infernape became one of the more powerful members of the group, helping Owen advance to the championship round of the Sinnoh League.
Obtained in Chapter 2: The First Capture
Evolved in Chapter 8: A Rocky Rematch!
Evolved in Chapter 36: A Rag Tag Duo Evolution!
Starly/Staravia/Staraptor: Staraptor was the first Pokemon caught in Owen's time in Sinnoh. She is a very powerful Pokemon, who took down Jet's Staravia, Combat when she was a Starly. She also often resorts to fighting from the sky, like most flying types. As a Starly, she also managed to defeat Rork's Geodude before being clobbered by Roark's Cranidos. Starly evolved into Staravia when Team Galactic attempted to steal Buneary. Then, during a battle against Xavier, Staravia evolved into Staraptor. She almost defeated Xavier's Infernape, but fainted after a Brave Bird/Flare Blitz collision. Staraptor proved to be Owen's best flying type throughout her journey in Sinnoh, providing Owen with reliable aerial suppport during battles.

Turtwig/Grotle/Torterra: Owen originally met Torterra as a Turtwig at Lake Valor when he brought her out of her Pokeball. Torterra was given to Owen as a gift from Professor. Rowan for helping save his research from Team Galactic. During the rematch against Roark, Torterra (at the time Turtwig) proved great strength when she managed to easily defeat Roark's Onix, however she was quickly disposed of against Roark's Cranidos. Torterra is one of the more reliable Pokemon Owen has, often winning battles that she is sent in to. Torterra also played a vital role in Owen's battle against Shadix in the Top 16, knocking out his first two Pokemon.

Team Galactic tried stealing her, but thanks to Starly evolving, she was freed and joined Owen's team. Lopunny is a very strong Pokemon, going toe to toe with Monferno and dealing a decent amount of damage to Xavier's Infernape. She eventually evolved during Owen's gym battle with Fantina and her Drifblim.

Evolved in Chapter 35: Grim sights and Crazy Fights
Buizel/Floatzel: Owen met Floatzel during his battle with Xavier when Xavier tried attacking Buneary when she had already fainted. Floatzel caused Xavier to run away and he then challenged Owen to a battle when he was still a Buizel. Floatzel managed to deal major damage to Monferno, but he was eventually caught. Owen decided to use Floatzel in his gym battle against Gardenia, and he managed to defeat Gardenia's Roserade to seal Owen's victory. Floatzel evolved against Jet an her Staravia, Combat, where he showcased a great deal of power. Floatzel is one of Owen's stronger Pokemon and he seems to be a skilled battler.
Obtained in Chapter 11: The Eterna Forest
Evolved in Chapter 23: Battle at the Beach
Electabuzz/Electivire: Electivire rejoined Owen's team when Professor. Oak told Owen that he was able to evolve and that he wanted to do so. Electivire was used in battle immediately when Archie and his Gallade appeared and attacked Owen. Electivire maintained his strength which allowed him to be a vital part to Owen's team. However, he didn't win as many battles as he did in Johto because Owen usually had him battle his opponents strongest Pokemon.
Joined Sinnoh in Chapter 12: Entering Eterna
Evolved in Chapter 49: The Not So Distant Past
Gible/Gabite/Garchomp: Owen first met Garchomp while he was training for the Hearthome Tag Battle Tournament, when Garchomp came out of nowhere and randomly attacked Owen and Torterra. After running away, he returned after the pairings for the Tag Battle were announced. He also evolved into Gabite during a battle with Cynthia's Garchomp while in Pastoria. Garchomp drew very high praise from the champion, who felt that Garchomp would become Owen's powerhouse. Garchomp then evolved during Owen's rematch against Byron, and dominated Byron's Scizzor. Shortly after evolving, it was quite clear that he and Infernape hate each other. Garchomp was the powerhouse of Owen's team, and managed to push Taylor's Drapion, Torterra, and Sceptile to the limit during the championship match. Garchomp is the second strongest Pokemon Owen has ever had, and his strength and determination to win rivals Charizard's.

Evolved in Chapter 48: Ready or Not, Rematch Time!
Gallade: Originally known as a member of Team Aqua, Gallade is an incredibly strong Pokemon. Gallade and Archie followed Owen to Sinnoh because Gallade desperately wanted to battle Owen again. Shortly after losing to his Electabuzz, Gallade was released by Archie. Owen eventually ran into Gallade again when Gallade saved Monferno from Xavier's Infernape. After defeating Infernape, Owen caught Gallade. Gallade will surely be a powerhouse behind Owen's team, especially after defeating three Pokemon (Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn's) by himself.
Obtained in Chapter 19: Who's That Pokemon?
Stunky/Skunktank: Owen received Skunktank when she was an egg during the Hearthome contest. She then hatched when Owen, Penny, and Talon arrived at Pastoria. While she hasn't battled that much, she has been very effective against her opponents, especially when she evolved during Owen's gym battle against Candice. Owen tended to use Skunktank at the strangest times, as shown in the Top 16 battle against Shadix when Skunktank was used to defeat Bastiodon.
Hatched in Chapter 26: Rolling In the Deep
Evolved in Chapter 54: It's Always Snowy in Snowpoint
Bronzor: Owen met Bronzor while exploring Iron Island before the tournament started. After fending off a trainer who was attacking him, Bronzor thanked Owen and joined his team. Bronzor has proven to be a skilled battler, taking down Byron's Bastiodon and going toe to toe with his Bronzong while also knocking out Jet's Staraptor, Combat. Bronzor was a commonly used Pokemon on Owen's tea later in the story and helped Owen achieve many victories.

Penny (Penelope): Penny is Owen's first (and female) companion of the Sinnoh region. She was originally introduced in Chapter 1, but returned in Chapter 3 where she had a Double Battle against Owen, using her Infernape and Staraptor against Owen's Chimchar and Starly. Penny also resembles Iris with her crazy hairstyle and her way of transportation (travelling through trees). She often lead the group to their destinations. Penny is also twelve years old, just like Talon.
Talon: Owen and Penny first met Talon when they were about to go through Eterna forest. He told them that he would help navigate them through the forest, but he turned out to be terrible with directions. Talon seems to be the idiot of the three and brings comedic relief whenever he opens his mouth. Surprisingly, Talon seems to be a powerful trainer as shown when he called out his Slaking, who managed to destroy a wall with one move, and when he made it to the finals of the Iron Island Tournament, and won when Xavier refused to battle him.. Talon actually did have moments of brightness, and he too is twelve years old.
Pokemon Unova Adventure
Main Character: Owen Plateau
Appearance: Owen stands at a towering 6'0" despite his young age. He has broad shoulders and an Adam's apple, often leading people to believe he's much older. He also has dark blonde hair and amber eyes along with fair skin.
Background Info: After his devastating loss in the Sinnoh League Finals, Owen runs away from home for six months. After being convinced by his best friends, CJ and Fate, Owen decides to venture through Unova in hopes of becoming the region's Champion. Through his time so far, Owen's Pokemon share problematic issues (such as Pidove not being able to fly and Blitzle not being able to generate much electricity), making them a band of misfits. Despite their misfit status, Owen's Pokemon have become much stronger thanks to a close bond with their trainer and each other.
Owen's Unova Pokemon
Snivy: When Owen arrived in Unova he met Professor Juniper in the Castelia city Pokemon Center, where he was given Snivy. However, Snivy ran away from Owen because she was afraid of him. Owen eventually found Snivy on the roof of a building. Owen tried catching Snivy when she fell, but a strange brown Pokemon (later revealed to be Heatmor) saved her. Snivy has shown to be very acrobatic when battling, and has become significantly stronger since learning Leaf Blade. Snivy also has a very strong hatred of Angel, who often mocks her for not being picked by a trainer for a whole year. Due to a mutation in her DNA, Snivy is unable to evolve. Despite being unable to evolve, Snivy won Owen his eighth gym badge after defeating Marlon's Carracosta. Snivy played a surprisingly large role for Owen in the Unova League, especially after Krookodile broke his leg.
Obtained in Chapter 2: Castelia City: Come Get Your Starter
Pidove/Tranquill/Unfezant: On the way to Accumula town, the group saw Unfezant being attacked by her own kind. Hez quickly scared them off, so Unfezant graciously took the group to her nest. She then received help from Owen in an attempt to take back some of the land from an Unfezant, which almost resulted in Owen and Snivy getting killed. However, Fate's Jigglypuff, Puff, saved them. Unfezant then requested to join Owen's team, which Owen was happy to hear. Unfezant was very weak at first because she couldn't fly, but thanks to Owen's motivation she learned how to. During his gym battle against Cilan, Unfezant knocked out Crustle and Pansage to win Owen his first badge. Unfezant has progressively become stronger since she first joined Owen, which has helped her play a key role on the team.

Blitzle/Zebstrika: Shortly after his battle with Akito Owen decided to catch another Pokemon so he could be stronger for the next time he encountered his rival. First, he found a powerful Patrat but it managed to get away, which lead him to help Pidove learn how to fly so she could find Patrat. However, she was hit by a powerful Shock Wave, and that's when Owen met Zebstrika. Zebstrika seemed to be a very timid Pokemon and a weak battler as shown when Pidove beat him in three turns, but he's broken both assumptions by defeating Cilan's Stunkfisk, Lenora's Patrat, and Elesa's Zebstrika. After powering the broken generator in the Castelia City sewers, Zebstrika is finally able to use countless electrical attacks.
Obtained in Chapter 5: Shock Wave! Pidove's Aerial Spectacle!
Evolved in Chapter 26: Shocking the Fashion Queen
Sawk(traded): Owen first met Sawk near the entrance of Pinwheel Forest while trying to train for his second gym battle. They worked together immediately, defeating a member of an organization called Team Solar. Sawk defeated a Throh with a variety of moves, including Blaze Kick. Sawk seems to be a very serious yet incredibly powerful Pokemon that won Owen his second badge. Sawk's love of contests made him lose his passion for battling, so he was traded to Fate for her Jigglypuff, Puff. Sawk also wakes up during the night to train by himself, and he has a growing friendship with Heatmor that started when Sawk found out Heatmor had been awake and training an entire night long.
Obtained in Chapter 9: Team Solar Surfaces
Traded in Chapter 18: A Big Old Family Reunion
Heatmor: First appearing as a nameless Pokemon that saved Snivy from a fall in Castelia City, Heatmor appears to be a very skilled Pokemon. When he and Owen met face to face, the teen saw that Heatmor was about 40 pounds under weight. Before meeting Owen, Heatmor was chased by a nameless man and two Herdier, while also having a vision of a young boy with yellow hair. Heatmor saved Snivy once again, and managed to defeat the two members of Team Solar in one attack. Heatmor is also the hardest working Pokemon on Owen's team, waking up in the middle of the night to train. After seeing Owen die, Heatmor decided to tell the group about his history, which included him watching his old trainer die. Heatmor finally gained control over his rage during Owen's gym battle with Drayden, where he knocked out Haxorus to win Owen his seventh gym badge. Heatmor has a tireless work ethic, which was shown when he and Owen practiced for hours to master Fire Pledge. That combined with his raw power have helped Heatmor become a major powerhouse. He also led an epic comeback during the championship that just fell short when he was knocked out by Akito's Torterra. Heatmor is one of the strongest Pokemon Owen has had, and his battling abilities are nearly on par with Charizard and Garchomp.
Obtained in Chapter 12: A Mystery Reignited!
Prinplup/Empoleon: While meeting his parents and Professor Oak before his tournament in Vermillion City Owen's parents brought Charizard and Empoleon along. The latter of the two was selected to Owen's team because of his low level and not being used once in Sinnoh. Since joining Owen's team, Empoleon has been used in several battles and has won countless times for Owen. During Owen's gym battle against Clay, Empoleon showed off great power and the will to never surrender, even after he was crushed by Excadrill's Drill Run. Empoleon also learned Water Pledge after training for only a few minutes, much to everyone's surprise. Empoleon is one of Owen's stronger Pokemon, and oft used for battle, no matter the circumstances.
Joined in Chapter 18: A Big Old Family Reunion
Evolved in Chapter 31: Conquering the Mining King!
Puff: Originallly belonging to Fate, Owen acquired Puff in a trade that sent Sawk to Fate. Puff has an explosive personality that's guaranteed to cause issues, whether it be with her opponents or teammates. Puff loves destroying things with her powerful Dynamic Punch, and she even interfered in Owen's battle with Dante because she wanted to battle so badly. Puff is a strange, yet great addition to Owen's team, because she is a capable fighter who loves to win. Puff even won Owen his sixth badge after defeating Skyla's Swanna. Though Puff hasn't battled as much as the others, Owen still uses her with the utmost confidence in her battling abilities.
Traded for in Chapter 18: A Big Old Family Reunion
Muk: Owen met Muk in the Castelia City sewers when the power went out in Castelia. Very little is known about Muk except that two women in yellow ordered him to destroy the generator, and that he is very powerful, as shown when he overwhelmed Heatmor in a very short battle. In his first battle with Owen, Muk defeated Burgh's Leavanny with ease, which won Owen his third badge. Muk is the most cheerful of Owen's Pokemon and often stops fights from occurring between his teammates. Muk serves as the tank of Owen's team, but he also dishes out major damage, making him far from a pushover in battle.
Obtained in Chapter 22: A Hero's Destiny
Krokorok/Krookodile: After arriving in Nimbasa City, the group saw a gang of Krokorok attacking the city. Once all of the attacking Krokorok were defeated, thanks to the help of a rebellious Krokorok, Owen battled the leader, which was a Krookodile. Heatmor and Krookodile (at the time a Krokorok) teamed up to fend off the Krookodile, and Owen asked Krookodile to join him. After battling and beating Heatmor, Krookodile decided to join Owen. Krookodile was very arrogant and had a short temper, which was shown when he attacked Rebecca's Deerling, and Heatmor, but he has become much kinder. After attacking Heatmor, Owen released Krookodile. After searching for him, Owen and Heatmor found Krookodile being attacked by his former gang leader. Krookodile evolved when Heatmor pushed him out of the way of a Stone Edge. Krookodile is incredibly strong, and even managed to defeat Brooklyn's Samurott with ease. Krookodile is a major powerhouse, and he seems to be friendly with all of Owen's other Pokemon since evolving. After evolving, Krookodile helped Owen win his seventh badge. Owen also used Krookodile in a sudden death battle in the Unova League, which he won. Krookodile, however, broke his leg in Owen's top 16 battle against Astral, so he missed the remainder of the Unova League.
Obtained in Chapter 25: Cracking Krokorok
Evolved in Chapter 42: See Ya, Krokorok
Druddigon: After Owen arrived in Icirrus City, he had to climb up Dragonspiral Tower to defeat JT. On his way up to the peak, Owen met Druddigon, who took an instant liking to Owen. Druddigon is shown to be protective of Owen as shown when she appeared to help him battle against JT and his Hydreigon. She also has a very physical battle style with powerful moves such as Revenge and Earthquake. Druddigon will likely play a large role on Owen's team, serving as the brute.
Obtained in Chapter 41: Light vs Dark: Heroes Clash!
Fate: After learning that Owen hadn't been home in over six months, Fate and CJ searched for him. After an hour or so, they found Owen and convinced him to go to Unova. Fate has grown much more mature and seems to be the voice of reason in the group. She also received Tepig from Professor Juniper, and it seems like they're beginning to get along. She also brought Hez, Venom, Puff, and Daisy to help compete in contests. In her first contest, Fate made it to the battle rounds, but lost to Brooklyn in a back and forth affair. Fate is also in a relationship with CJ, which started when the group arrived in Humilau City. Fate eventually reached the Grand Festival semifinals before falling to Destiny, who later won the championship.
Fate's team: Hez (Swampert), Angel (Tepig), Venom (Venomoth), Daisy (Eevee), Rose (Trubbish), Sawk
CJ: After learning that Owen hadn't been home in over six months, Fate and CJ searched for him. After an hour or so, they found Owen and convinced him to go to Unova. CJ is still the same quiet person that he was during Kanto, but has shown to be a bit more talkative. Along with Owen and Fate, he was given a starter in Castelia, which was a lazy Oshawott that is surprisingly incredible at battling. He brought Leaf along with him, but doesn't have any intentions of competing in the Unova League or Grande Festival. CJ showed a knack for competing in contests when he and Leaf performed a stunning Leaf Volcano. CJ is also in a relationship with Fate, which started when the group arrived in Humilau City.
CJ's team: Leaf (Bulbasaur), Wotter (Oshawott), Excalibur (Drilbur)
Rebecca: Being introduced at the S.S Anne Tournament, Owen and Rebecca battled in the first round. Rebecca is twelve years old and is the youngest of the group. She also gets excited over small things and loves an occasional battle. One of her problems as a trainer, however, is not cheering for her Pokemon. After her Deerling was horribly injured by Owen's Krokorok, he screamed at her for not doing anything about Deerling's injury or encouraging him during their battle. Rebecca also has a younger sister, but she has only been shown once.
Rebecca's team: Oshawott, Deino, Deerling
Other Important Characters
Akito: Serving as Owen's primary rival, Akito is the toughest trainer Owen has faced in the Unova region. Akito previously competed in Sinnoh, Hoenn, and then Johto before deciding to compete in the Unova League. He reached the championship round of the Ever Grande Conference after crushing Astral in the semifinals, but it's unknown where he finished in each league. Akito is a very happy person, but gets competitive whenever battling, where he takes on a serious personality. He is also in love with art and tries to never miss a good Pokemon Contest, which often give him ideas for battles. He and Owen also respect each other greatly, and have also battled twice. In their first battle, Akito won convincingly. In their second battle, however, Snivy propelled Owen to a tie after taking out Akito's Gabite and Grotle. Akito eventually defeated Owen in the championship of the Unova League, despite Heatmor's incredible comeback.
Destiny: Being the Gary Oak of Fate's rivals, Destiny is obnoxious and overly confident in her abilities. Though she hasn't been seen much, it can be assumed that she has a crush on CJ and is rivals with Fate for his romantic attention. Destiny is said to be incredibly attractive, which makes the boys around her gape and even drool. After defeating Fate in a battle with her Snivy, Destiny failed to reach the battle rounds in the Castelia City Contest after falling apart at the end of her routine, but she defeated Fate in the Grand Festival semifinals.
Brooklyn: After Owen bumped into her on the streets of Castelia City, he and Brooklyn instantly despised each other. Despite her hatred for Owen, Brooklyn was very friendly towards Fate, CJ, and later Rebecca. After he stood up for her when JT made perverted comments, Brooklyn has grown to like Owen, and they even reintroduced themselves to squash any previous issues. Shortly after doing so, Owen pushed Brooklyn out of the way of a Team Solar admin's Combusken's Slash, whig sent Owen to the hospital. Brooklyn lost to Destiny in the championship of the Grand Festival, but she decided to stick around and watch the Unova League.
Dante: After coming off as a bit of a jerk, Dante was shown to be a caring person after his first battle with Owen where he almost injured Sawk badly and apologized right after. Dante is a hardworking and enthusiastic trainer who had a tough upbringing. He is also a skilled trainer with an aggressive, yet tactful approach to battles. He and Owen have both defeated each other. Owen wound up defeating Dante in the semifinals after Heatmor defeated his Lucario.
Astral: Astral placed top 8 in Johto, top 4 in Hoenn, and top 4 in Kanto when Owen competed in the Indigo League. Astral is a quiet person, but an exceptional trainer. Even though he and Owen have only battled once, they have a competitive rivalry. Astral's starting Pokemon is a shiny Tyrouge, who went toe-to-toe with Heatmor before eventually being defeated. Astral and Owen faced off in the top 16 during the Unova League, which ended with Owen winning, though it was a very close battle.
Blake: Blake is Owen's fourth and final rival in Unova, and has a bubbly personality. He and Owen had only battled once prior to the Unova League, which ended with Blake's starter, Arcanine, defeating Snivy with ease. In the league, he and Owen battled in the quarterfinals, which Owen won due to him using Charizard to defeat Blake's two remaining Pokemon.
JT: When the group met JT he came off as a bit of a creep. After hitting on Fate and Brooklyn, CJ challenged him to a battle in order to stop JT's inappropriate intentions. Much to everyone's surprise, JT sent out a Hydreigon and effortlessly defeated CJ. It was later revealed - at Celestial Tower - that JT was the leader of Team Solar. Owen eventually defeated him at Dragonspiral Tower, ending the threat of Team Solar.
Ariel: Ariel was randomly introduced after Owen defeated Burgh. For unknown reasons she is searching for Owen along with her Blaziken, as shown when they arrived at Pallet Town and asked an elderly woman for Owen's location. Ariel has appeared at the end of several chapters and often criticizes Owen's Pokemon despite his success. Her Blaziken acts as a neutral character, who tries standing up for Owen despite not knowing him personally. Ariel and her Blaziken will make several appearances throughout the Unova region and she also has plans of killing someone, though it's not known who.

Owen's Kalos Pokemon
Froakie/Frogadier/Greninja: Greninja is Owen's starter for the Kalos region due to two other trainers not reserving him. The two seem to get along well, despite only knowing each other for a short time. Greninja also has the will to take on any opponent no matter their size, as shown when he battled against Frank's Dragonite at the very start of his journey with Owen. Before he could be hit by Dragonite's Hyper Beam, Charizard swooped in and saved him, and the two have had a close relationship ever since. Greninja was a very inconsistent battler, as shown when he defeated two of Larenz's Pokemon and lost to Viola's Heracross twice, but he seems to have become significantly stronger since evolving, which was proven when he beat Grant's Tyrunt to win Owen his second badge. Greninja is also very acrobatic and quick, and he has become much more outgoing. On top of that, he likes Brooklyn's Braixen.

Charizard: Charizard followed Owen to Kalos all the way from Pallet Town, and he arrived just in time, as he saved Greninja (at the time a Froakie) from being hit by a fatal Hyper Beam. He then faced off against Frank's Dragonite and overpowered him, but the roles were reversed when Frank used Grim Reversion. Charizard is an incredibly powerful Pokemon, and is Owen's most trusted because he is the first Pokemon Owen ever had. Since the beginning of the journey, Charizard has had a friendly relationship with Greninja, but doesn't feel comfortable around Brooklyn. Charizard also helped Owen defeat King George and his Furfrou in a battle that would've forced Owen to marry Elizabeth had he lost. Charizard also gained the ability to Mega Evolve into Mega Charizard X and Y after displaying tremendous courage for battling Frank's Dragonite in Shalour City. Charizard is also the child of Catherine's two starting Pokemon, and he also learned a technique called Mega Fusion, which is a combination of his two Mega Evolutions.

Caterpie/Metapod/Butterfree: When Owen arrived in Santalune City, he saw that several buildings were destroyed (due to Team Flare in Monfernofreak's Pokemon XY: Kalos!). Because he wanted to get his first gym badge, Owen agreed to help out a group of Pokemon that were taken from their home in Santalune Forest. After helping Owen and Froakie defeat a poacher, Butterfree decided to join the team. So far, Butterfree appears to be one the strongest Pokemon on Owen's, and she has a very powerful Psybeam, which took down Grant's Onix and Geodude. Butterfree also defeated Viola's Spewpa with surprising strength, and she beat Vivillon during Owen's rematch. After earning his third badge, Owen didn't turn to Butterfree as often due to her being at a much higher level than the others.

Pikachu: Once Viola told Owen about a group of Pikachu terrorizing trainers in Santalune Forest, he decided to take action and stop the Pikachu. After challenging their leader to a battle, Froakie won, and Owen caught Pikachu in order to keep the group from reassembling. Pikachu is a quick and nimble fighter, who is also able to use Thunderbolt despite being at a low level. Pikachu appears to be the most natural battler of Owen's three Kalos Pokemon, at the moment, and he will play a key role for Owen throughout Kalos. During Owen's two gym battles with Viola, Pikachu managed to defeat her Heracross both times, but he also fainted. During the battle, Pikachu displayed stunning speed and surprising strength. He also played a pivotal role in Owen's rematch against Korrina, paralyzing both Mienfoo and Machoke.

Tyrunt/Tyrantrum: After his gym battle with Grant, Owen traveled to Glittering Cave because Eddy wanted to see the Pokemon inside. After the group split-up, Cindy was captured by Team Grim, who was looking for Tyrunt and Amaura. While Owen was battling an admin, Tyrunt assisted Charizard, and he later joined Owen's team. Tyrunt appears to be a very strong and confident Pokemon, and he also seems to have a habit of biting. In his first battle, which was against Korrina, Tyrunt managed to defeat her Machoke before falling to Mega Lucario. Tyrantrum evolved during Owen's gym battle with Clemont, which he won by defeating his Heliolisk. Tyrantrum is incredibly powerful, and showed off his brute strength when defeating Maria's Chesnaught in the top 16.

During Owen's gym battle with Clemont, Hawlucha defeated his Magneton and dealt significant damage to Heliolisk before falling. Hawlucha also defeated Maria's Munchlax. With powerful moves and a strong will at his disposal, Hawlucha is a key member of Owen's team.

Gastly/Haunter/Gengar: After losing his battle against Korrina, Owen and the others were told about a group of Pokemon that attacked Shalour every night. While heading back to the Pokemon Center, Owen found Gengar injured by the water. After she was nursed back to health, Gengar joined Owen's team and helped him defeat Korrina in his rematch. Then, Gengar played an instrumental role in winning Owen his fourth badge against Ramos, defeating his Weepinbell and Gogoat, and she evolved against the latter of the two. Upon evolving, Gengar showed a tremendous amount of power and her confidence grew exponentially, knocking out Larenz's Meganium, making her one of the strongest Pokemon on Owen's team. Gengar then evolved when Owen was attacked by a Dusknoir, who she destroyed with an incredible amount of power. GGengar has many wins under her belt, most recently at the Kalos League, and she is the powerhouse of the team. Gengar later learned how to Mega Evolve in the championship when she battled Larenz' Meganium.

Chesnaught quickly came to the Scatterbug's defense and challenged Greninja to a battle, which he won with ease. After Owen left to watch Brooklyn's contest, Chesnaught followed and later challenged Owen to a rematch. Chesnaught is a very powerful Pokemon who is sure to be a pivotal member to Owen's team, helping Owen win his fourth gym badge, defeating Larenz's Milotic and even going toe to toe with his Meganium.

After Owen saved her, he helped Slurpuff free all of her captured friends before she joined Owen. Slurpuff is a very clumsy Pokemon with a bit of a temper, and she has a habit of licking Owen's face. While she seems to have a rivalry with Chespin, as evidenced by her tackling and attacking him. Since joining, Slurpuff has been one of the strongest Pokemon on Owen's team, despite her unintimidating appearance.

Cindy: While Owen dealt with the Pikachu in Santalune Forest, Cindy made her debut in the story alongside her Litleo. Though they didn't do anything, Cindy and her Litleo followed Owen to Lumiose City and even jumped off the Prism Tower with him. Cindy is a carefree, go-with-the-flow kind of person who is always looking to do something thrilling. Not much is known about her goals, at the moment, but she seems to be picking up on Owen and Brooklyn's relationship.
Cindy's team: Litleo
Brooklyn: Though not much is known about why she ventured to Kalos, Brooklyn appeared early on in the story. While she was traveling to Lumiose City, she found an injured Fennekin and rushed it to the Pokemon Center. Shortly after, Fennekin joined her. After Owen and Cindy jumped off the Prism Tower, Brooklyn met up with, and scolded, the two after their stunt. Brooklyn is also competing in the Kalos Grand Festival, but her first performance (in Cyllage City) was a disaster as she was disqualified because Fennekin and Smeargle were too scared to move. She is now dating Owen.
Brooklyn's team: Braixen, Smeargle, Amaura, Gogoat
Eddy: As he was traveling around the grounds of Parfum Palace for a tournament, Owen met Eddy, who explained the strange rules to him. Despite being only eight years old, Eddy is very insightful, yet has his moments of idiocy, as evidenced by his waking up after Fredrick was killed by Calvin's Goomy. He was also sent to a boarding school by his parents, but he ran away. Reasons for his leaving are unknown, at the moment.
Eddy's team: None
Daniel: Though he competes in contests and is one of Brooklyn's rivals, Daniel joined the group when they asked him to. Daniel is a kindhearted and intelligent coordinator, and he already has two ribbons. Given the strength of his Pokemon and his knack for coming up with great combinations, Daniel will surely go far in the Grand Festival.
Daniel's team: Dragonair, Dedenne, Aerodactyl, Axew
Other Important Characters
Ariel: After Owen arrived in Kalos, it was revealed that Ariel had already been traveling through the region for several weeks. After Owen battled Frank, he met Ariel. While she was interrogating him, Charizard attacked her Blaziken, resulting in a battle between the two. After the battle ended, Ariel advised Owen to not clash with Frank, which confused him. Very little is known about Ariel, except that she wields a Mega Ring and is a former member of the Elite 4. It was also revealed that she is Owen's twin sister. After losing her battle to Frank, she died when he snapped her neck.
Frank: When he made his way towards Santalune City for his first badge, Owen encountered a group of thugs that were trying to steal Pokemon from trainers. Owen decided to challenge them in an attempt to save the Pokemon, and he battled a man named Frank, who is the leader of Team Grim. Frank is an incredibly powerful and ruthless trainer who attempted to kill Frogadier, and his Dragonite even defeated Charizard after it artifically Mega Evolved. During his second meeting with Owen, he managed to defeat Ariel's Mega Blaziken in one attack before escaping with all of the Mega Stones from the Tower of Mastery. Frank then killed the Royal Family with little effort, singlehandedly destroying everything in his path. Given his willingness to kill, Frank is definitely someone who should be feared, and he is also the father of Owen and Ariel, and was once a member of the Kalos Elite 4. He eventually died when Dragonite elected to save Owen from a life threatening fall instead of Frank.
Larenz: While Owen was training for his rematch against Viola, he met Larenz and his Chikorita. Once Larenz told Owen he was a better trainer, the two battled shortly afterwards. Owen eventually won the battle, and Larenz left without saying a word. Larenz is an arrogant trainer who has very strong Pokemon on his team, and he even defeated Brooklyn in the Coumarine City Contest. Later, he challenged Owen to a full battle and crushed him with his incredibly powerful Pokemon.
Tyler: Being the protagonist of Monfernofreak's 'Pokemon XY: Kalos!' Tyler is a very skilled trainer despite being a rookie. He is a very calm and is laid back unless he's in a Pokemon battle, or if he's talking about Pokemon. Owen met Tyler at the Pokemon Center in Santalune and decided to help him train his Froakie, who was struggling to use Bubble. After a failed day of practice, Owen decided that a battle would be the perfect remedy for Froakie's inability to use Bubble. Despite Tyler basically using two Pokemon (Froakie was atrocious), he still managed to win the battle with cunning tactics and a calm demeanor. Tyler may be Owen's most skilled rival despite being a rookie trainer.
Moe: As they passed through the skatepark on Route 5, Owen met his third rival, Moe. Moe is a bit arrogant, as shown when he didn't believe Owen was capable of owning a strong Pokemon. He is, however, a very strong trainer with an equally strong team. Had Froakie not evolved into Frogadier during the battle, Owen would've surely lost. The next time they battled, Moe won thanks to his Clauncher taking out both Tyrunt and Greninja.
King George: You guessed it! George is the King of Kalos, and a rather strange character. He organized a survival tournament at his house (Parfum Palace), and he wasn't angry at Owen for his son's death. He did, however, want Owen to marry his daughter, Elizabeth, for unknown reasons. George is a very strong trainer, which was implied when he told Owen (after their battle) that his Furfrou had never been defeated. He was later killed by Frank, who has taken power in Kalos.
Elizabeth: She is the daughter of George and the Princess of Kalos, whose personality wasn't showcased. Elizabeth seems like a quiet person, and she was saddened that Owen defeated her father, which prevented them from being married. She was later killed by Frank because he didn't want her potentially taking the throne.
Maria: Being the star of tepigsfire758's 'Pokemon: Kalos Defenders' Maria is a very talented trainer who has a knack for drawing up some pretty crazy strategies, similar to Owen. Owen first met Maria on his way to Cyllage City when her Pikachu accidentally zapped Frogadier with a Thunderbolt, and that led to Maria challenging Owen to a battle. Even though she lost, Maria used incredible tactics that presented many issues for Owen, much like he does to other trainers. Because their battling styles are so similar, Maria may be Owen's toughest rival.
Olivia: While visiting the Gogoat Ranch, the group met Olivia. After Brooklyn tried giving one of the Gogoat a can of food, she was shocked to see it was full of plastic worms, which Olivia was responsible for. The two then battled and Olivia won with ease. Though she's a prankster, Olivia is a very skilled trainer and coordinator, and she's Penny's cousin.
Catherine: Cahterine is Owen and Ariel's mother, and she met them in Laverre City, where she battled Owen and Ariel. After defeating her children, Catherine revealed that her Blaziken and Charizard were the parents of Owen and Ariel's starters. Catherine was also a member of the Elite 4, specializing in fire types, before quitting when she had Owen and Ariel. Despite only being seventeen at the time, Catherine was in line to become the Champion of Kalos. She was also in a relationship with Frank. During the Lumiose City invasion Catherine was shot and killed by Frank.
Pokemon Kanto Adventure: A New Generation!
Main Character: Gray Plain
Appearance: Gray is 5'6" with wavy brown hair, and her name comes from her having gray eyes. While traveling, she wears a thin, red hoodie with a black tank top underneath, a pair of ripped jeans, and white runners.
Background info: Growing up in Saffron City, Gray is used to the frenetic pace of large cities. Before she could start her journey, the league enacted a policy that forced children to have some form of an education, and be at least 14 before they could get their license. Gray is a child of a one parent household, and she also has a little brother, Billy. Gray also has three friends, Tracey and Sammy, who are sisters, and Chase.
Meowth: Unlike many other starters, Meowth refuses to listen to anything Gray says, as shown during her battle with Trentavious and his Snivy, and she often takes naps when she doesn't want to deal with Gray. Meowth has shown a very aggressive battle-style, and will be a very reliable Pokemon in the future.
Other Important Characters
Trentavious: After overhearing Sammy talk about him, Trentavious challenged her to a battle at Oak's lab. Gray intervened and decided to battle Trentavious, who has been shown to taunt his opponents in battle, and so does his Snivy. Trentavious is very obnoxious, and will definitely be Gray's strongest rival.
