Starter as Ralts --> Evolved to Kirlia --> Evolved to Gardevoir
Given to Hyrem by his father to be his first Pokemon, Sera quickly warmed up to him after she sensed the positive feelings emanating from the new trainer. This critical bond has manifested after she evolved into a Gardevoir, and she and Hyrem's minds are now linked for life, allowing them to read each other's minds as well as help Hyrem discover his own telepathy, linking his mind with other Pokemon who he has fully bonded with.

Sera is perhaps more well-known for her reserved demeanor and her ability to remain calm and rational in many different situations. And someone like that is absolutely necessary on a team filled with pranksters, predators, and messy kids. Her best friend would have to be Carla, who she shares her powers of precognition with as well as demeanor. She actually serves as Carla's mentor in addition as the Espeon develops her own psychic powers.

Hatched by Scott from his egg as part of the Easter festivities in addition to the Scraggy that Hyrem hatched, they decided to trade their hatchlings to each other because they didn't quite feel compatible with the Pokemon they got, although whether or not either trainer got less of a handful than what they had previously is still under debate. It is said that Druddigon are often difficult to train, but Hyrem is confident he will someday be able to calm this Cave Pokemon down enough and gain a powerful force in battle and a very loyal friend, with some help from Sera, of course. Sarkhan feels a close friend in Amethyst since they share similar prideful attitudes, although he knows she has much bigger interest in a male Seviper named Marvolo and is content with being her battle partner. Besides, he has more feelings for the ditsy Ivysaur named Pomona anyway!

Yet another hatchling of Easter, Amethyst was hatched by Alex, but rather than dealing with inevitable conflicts between her and his Shadow Zangoose, he gave her to Hyrem hoping he would be a better trainer for the Fang Snake. Inside Hyrem's team, she finds herself a good friend in Sarkhan as they share many things in common: they are both stubborn, and they think of the younger Pokemon on the team as beneath them, although Amethyst shows this more often against the other female Pokemon; at least Sera can put her in her place if she feels like it. And Hyrem thought he'd have trouble with Sarkhan! Now he has to deal with a Pokemon that could literally wrap him up for a quick lunch and be on her way! But, despite her pride, she wouldn't do that; someone does have to help her reach her full potential as a Seviper, after all (and give her tons of massages)... And it sure wasn't going to be Alex! Other close friends of hers are other snake Pokemon, especially a male Seviper named Marvolo, her "siblings" Seshiro and Shisato, and her "pet" Dunsparce, Charlie, who she has on a leash simply because of her unusual ability to spit chocolate. She also uses her weird ability in battle so her opponent will taste better when she sinks her fangs into them. This was demonstrated in her battle against Rengar, who she eventually defeated and lead to the Zangoose's capture, giving her a perfect "toy" to play with...

Caught in Whale Island as Chinchou --> Evolved to Lanturn
During a fishing/diving cruise in Whale Island's Rainbow Reef, the first Pokemon Hyrem reeled in was this Chinchou. After Daphne defeated her, Hyrem entered her into the fishing contest where he won 3rd place! He was so proud of his results, he decided to keep his prize fish instead of releasing her. She then played a vital part in helping Hyrem face against the Phantom Isle's Harvester of Eyes and evolved into a Lanturn in order to save him from the brink of despair. Delilah can put a smile on anyone's face with her bright personality and brighter lures. Even the fish she hunts in the wild get themselves swallowed with a smile on their faces. Her glowing antennae also serve to light even the darkest depths in any body of water and can be useful for guiding Hyrem through underwater caves, dark waterways, etc. She can also sufficiently defend herself if she needs to; should someone try to intimidate Delilah, they will only receive a mouthful of Thunder Wave... or suffer the wrath of Hebenon, Delilah's love interest. Delilah's personality has surprisingly softened Amethyst's stance on smaller Pokemon somewhat, at least just for Delilah.

Traded as Poochyena --> Evolved to Mightyena
Overwhelmed by how much energy this Poochyena had, Alice traded him away to Hyrem, who was convinced by his friend Keith that he should try to get one. Hyrem named his new Poochyena Laika, but he might as well have named him "Licka" since there's no resisting the urge to pounce on his trainer and lick his face for this dog! Laika gets along with most of Hyrem's team, although Amethyst occasionally gets annoyed by his antics. Sarkhan likes having Laika around; as long as he knows his place in the pecking order, he's willing to play with him whenever he wants (just give him some sun to warm up with first!). Which is a good thing because Laika's always in the mood to play! Even if Sarkhan isn't available, there's always Leila. She's willing to play with Laika most of the time, though Laika is oblivious to the Sneasel's true intentions.

However, when Hyrem went to visit Blaze's secret base, he got attacked by a wild Druddigon along the way. Sarkhan and Laika worked together to fight it off, but even more remarkable was the fact that Laika evolved into a Mightyena in the middle of everything! Of course, evolution meant a bigger body for Laika to pounce on Hyrem with and a bigger tongue to lick his face with too! So much so that it's more difficult to fight off his ritual of affection, meaning Laika can spend more time with Hyrem... which is ALWAYS a good thing!

Adopted as Ekans --> Evolved to Arbok
Hyrem was fortunate enough to walk past the Adoption Center just as the owner was heading inside with an Ekans coiled around her arm. The snake noticed his presence and stared at him longingly, and Hyrem stared back with a sudden interest in him. The owner could see how interested they were in each other and invited Hyrem to adopt the snake, to which he happily accepted. Named Seshiro, he sees Amethyst as his older sister, even though they're probably distant relatives in reality. As such, he likes to follow her around, interested in what she's doing. Amethyst is totally fine with this, as she effectively now has a "younger brother" to toy with and teach her ways to. Seshiro is different from his "sister" in that he is willing to make friends with whoever he meets most of the time, though if you try to mess with his friends--especially Shisato--watch out, or he'll put those intimidation skills he learned from Amethyst to good use! Also, ever since evolving to an Arbok while in the Arcane Realm, he has a much larger body and strength to back up his intimidation, giving him the potential to make good on his threats.

More often than not, Seshiro's curiosity makes it so he wants a closer look at things, and this is evident in his battle style. Where Shisato likes attacking from a distance, Seshiro is good at chasing down the opponent and attacking from close up, and when you've got an eleven-and-a-half-foot snake coming after you ... you tend to get very nervous. Combined with Shisato's stealth and ranged attacks, most opponents don't stand much of a chance against the two snakes.

Traded as Sneasel --> Evolved to Weavile
Karmas had heard of how Hyrem was interested in a Sneasel, and since he was no longer interested in owning his Sneasel, he traded it to Hyrem. Later on, she was traded to Connor for his Shiny Boldore, which evolved into a Gigalith, then traded back, but came back to Hyrem as a gorgeous Weavile! Leila is just as much of a prankster as Daphne is, with the same sadistic streak Amethyst has and a charming allure similar to Sera and Delilah, making her a triple threat. Leila has a nasty habit of stealing food from other Pokemon, especially when it comes to Amethyst's eggs. Between her and Daphne, Amethyst has her coils full! Sera doesn't exactly approve of Leila's actions either since she uses her charms for her own selfish gain instead of helping contribute to the team, though her encounter with Sirius may very well change things. Her response to that? She still contributes... her methods are just more... controversial.

Leila recently formed a rivalry with Rob's Absol, Melantha, after she suffered a humiliating loss by the Disaster Pokemon's cheap, super-effective moves in battle. She swore to herself that she'd totally get back at that smug sphinx for defaming her like that, but we'll just have to see how that turns out, won't we?

After having a talk with Marion about her latest hatch, a Skarmory, Hyrem ultimately gave in to his instincts and took the Armor Bird into his own team. Icarus is best described as an inciter. He loves swooping in either to fire an insult towards Sarkhan and Amethyst or to toy with them other ways. Also, since he's the only Pokemon on Hyrem's team so far who can fly AND able to carry Hyrem long distances, he loves rubbing it in everyone's faces by doing aerial acrobatic tricks and stunts. All of this trolling and showboating eventually results in him getting a little too close to the sun, so to speak, which inevitably results in him getting knocked down a peg or two by his reptilian teammates. But, when times are dire and it comes right down to it, Icarus has a heart of silver. If he sees one of his friends in trouble, particularly if it's little Amelia, woe be to the oppressor that fails to hide from the metallic glimmer and sharp senses of this Skarmory!

Traded as Venipede --> Evolved to Whirlipede --> Evolved to Scolipede
For some reason, when this Venipede who used to be owned by Joshua saw Hyrem, she crawled up to him and won him over easily, so a quick trade later and he now has Aisa, named after a girl seen on TV that could feel everyone around her. She was well named since she doesn't miss a single person or Pokemon around her and knows where everyone is at all times... especially Hyrem. You see, Aisa's a stalker, and she'll take every attempt she can to eat his hair or his clothes, even his backpack. Naturally, Hyrem doesn't take to this all too well, that she's an enormous Scolipede, there may not be much he can do to stop her now! You know, except...hide inside his base since Aisa is now too big to fit through the entrance. Of course, being such a stalker also implies her unwavering loyalty towards Hyrem, and she will defend him from everything... which may or may not include her teammates!

Adopted as Ekans --> Evolved to Arbok
On yet another trip to the Adoption Center, Hyrem came across a second Ekans that looked just as young as Seshiro did. She looked very sad, and when she noticed the boy, she could smell Seshiro's scent on him. She had to do everything in her power to get this trainer to adopt her... or so she thought. He asked about the Ekans and was told that she used to be owned by a trainer, but then she was traded to someone else, then abandoned here. Hyrem easily sympathized with this poor snake, and his kind heart adopted her and named her Shisato. Having already made friends with Seshiro before, the relationship between the two increased tenfold now that they were teammates and are now completely inseparable. Amethyst also likes having a "younger sister" to tease, in addition to a "younger brother", and the two female snakes are great friends who enjoy their girl time with each other. Shisato is also good friends with Aisa since they were introduced at around the same time, and she'll occasionally help the Venipede in her plots to win Hyrem over. Now that she has evolved into an Arbok after adventuring in the Arcane Realm, she still finds ways to quietly "help out", and despite her large size she can still manage to appear out of nowhere to Hyrem and is still good at playing Hide and Seek with her friends.

Other than that, Shisato tends to talk very little; it was her rebellious spirit that got her abandoned in the first place, she figures, so she has learned to hold her tongue instead of lashing out like she did before. Her silence can also be deadly; where Seshiro is more capable of chasing down his target and relies more on melee combat, Shisato is extremely efficient at stealth, and while she can certainly do many things Seshiro can she loves to strike out of nowhere with a ranged attack that her opponent can't do much about. Together, the two Arbok make a very good team that's hard to stop once they get going.

Traded as Purrloin --> Evolved to Liepard
Yet another trade with Karmas involved Hyrem receiving a Dark-type, and this time it would be a cute female Purrloin to join, now named Selina. Selina is about as independent as Leila is, which either results in them butting heads against each other or working together to win the hearts of male Pokemon they are interested in. However, while Leila is more into canine Pokemon, Selina naturally prefers other felines, of which Luke comes to mind, though he expresses zero interest in her whatsoever. Selina is also a fully-fledged member of Team Pocket, an organization made by Pokemon with the purpose of stealing small objects from the richer folk in Fizzy Bubbles, which Selina is extremely good at, especially as a Liepard who now relies on stealth instead of charm to steal from people without them knowing she was ever there. One of her best friends in Team Pocket is Coin, an Umbreon belonging to Okiku since they share the same type and the same fondness for shiny objects, though Selina is the better thief of the two now that she has evolved.

Traded as Turtwig --> Evolved to Grotle --> Evolved to Torterra
This spunky little Turtwig was hatched by Morganna as part of Fizzytopia's 10th Anniversary of Independence, but she unfortunately didn't find resonance with him, so she gave him to Hyrem, knowing how much he was looking for Grass-type Starter Pokemon, and the Turtwig is now Toby, one of Hyrem's more reliable Pokemon. Moreover, ever since his evolution into a Grotle during a sparring match with a Tynamo named Mustrum, he has only proven to be more reliable, especially now that he has more defensive stats to him. Toby tends to be carefree and takes almost any adversity that comes his way in stride. He also likes to show off his vicelike jaws by biting down on coconuts and other hard fruits and nuts; he has therefore deemed these his favorite foods. Toby prefers to be with other Grass-type Pokemon like Daphne and Zyra just because he feels a kinship with them. Toby also likes hanging out with Sarkhan and is more than willing to share the sunlight with him. They also like to have fun seeing what kind of things they can crush with their hard jaws, and now that Toby has fully evolved he has finally beaten Sarkhan in bite strength!

Recently, he has finally figured out that Zyra has feelings for him, so he decided to show his own feelings for her one fateful belated Christmas event when there was a Mystic Mistletoe presented. After calling for Zyra, Hyrem dangled the magic plant over them, and the two Grass-types shared a kiss passionate enough that Zyra actually evolved into an Ivysaur from it! The two have stayed together ever since then and are usually found sunbathing together just outside Hyrem's base. For the most part, they are also perfectly fine with anyone joining them for a good nap, except when they want some time just for each other.

Traded as Shuppet --> Evolved to Banette
Having hatched this Shuppet, this would make the fourth Shuppet Keith has ever owned, but because he would be on the same team as his former girlfriend Helena this one, named Michael, wanted to be with someone else, so Keith found his best friend, Hyrem, and asked that he take him. Like other Shuppet and Banette Hyrem has encountered, Michael comes with a grudge... one that may be the most powerful grudge any Shuppet could have: a grudge against himself. He constantly thinks about the things he did in his past life and especially regrets leaving Helena to die, even though there wasn't much he could do anyway. He has decided, however, that he would try whatever he could to make up for the wrongs he did; even though he believes nothing would be sufficient to atone for his sins he wants to do as much as he can. At the very least he has mended his relationship with Helena, who is now reborn as a Shuppet under Keith's ownership, but that was only the beginning for him. Where other Shuppet wouldn't think much about eating the negative emotions of others, he believes the act to be more sacred: if he could relieve someone of all their burdens, they would be able to live a much happier life without those burdens, and it would only be Michael that would have to carry them... then only he would have to suffer. As a part of this mindset, he took Helena's old grudge she had against him and added it to his own, and the surge of power he gained from such a transfer caused him to evolve into a Banette. Now in his new form, he is ready to hunt down Team Rocket, the crime syndicate that killed him and Helena, in order to avenge their two deaths. He has also pledged unconditional loyalty to Hyrem as another way to provide restitution. With all these plans to redeem himself, however, one has to wonder if he may lose himself to the instincts of his Banette form in the process...

Hatched as Spheal --> Evolved to Sealeo --> Evolved to Walrein
On a whim, Hyrem decided to get himself an Ice Glacier Egg to celebrate the Christmas season, and, eventually, out popped this little bundle of joy who has loved her "daddy" ever since she hatched. Brittany is willing to take on any obstacle that comes her way, especially if a fishy snack and/or a hug from Hyrem is included. Michael has been helping immensely with her training seeing he used to own a Walrein in his past life, and he and Brittany are very close friends because of that; in fact, it was because of Michael's help that she became strong enough to fight off a Cryogonal and evolve into a Sealeo as a result. She also likes to play games with Laika and the others, and she has developed bonds with Vi and Zyra, who grew up with her, and Aisa, since both Pokemon like to have rolling contests with each other. She'll also stand up to someone that tries to mess with her, including Amethyst. After all, she wants to prove she can protect her "daddy" just like the others can!

Traded as Torchic --> Evolved to Combusken --> Evolved to Blaziken
Hyrem got a totally surprising request from Tess, an extremely respected trainer in Fizzy Bubbles. She had heard of how the young boy helped to save Whale Island from Kyogre (which surprised Hyrem since hardly anybody knew about his involvement) and figured he would be a good trainer to raise this Torchic. She simply asked that he take care of her. What an honor! Named after a rebellious warrior with mecha gauntlets, Vi shows just as much spunk as her namesake, willing to fight off any Pokemon that tries to mess with her, including Amethyst and Aisa. As a result, she made fast friends with Mia and Brittany, who are both just as eager to prove themselves as she is. Despite her rough-and-tough demeanor, however, she's always willing to let Hyrem hug her warm, fiery body since she was used to that sort of treatment from her original trainer. Not for too long, though, she has a reputation to uphold!

Traded as Bulbasaur --> Evolved to Ivysaur --> Evolved to Venusaur
Dang, Hyrem gets a lot of Pokemon from Karmas, this is the third one he's gotten from him! (Though this time, he had to outbid Rob for it) Anyway, Zyra is a really sweet Pokemon despite the fact she doesn't like sweet flavors (she prefers the sour berries the most, especially Nomel Berries). She reminds Hyrem of Pomona, Keith's Ivysaur, but she tends to want hugs more than getting into battles. She still plays with the other girls, though, and likes making new friends. During a belated Christmas event, however, Toby brought her under a mistletoe and basically confirmed the relationship they had between each other, and the kiss they shared had just enough passion to it that Zyra evolved into an Ivysaur as a result. Zyra already had feelings for Toby before this, but now that she knows Toby shares those feelings she hardly ever leaves his side. Now a Venusaur, she is usually found sunbathing with Toby just outside Hyrem's base, and they enjoy each other's company, as well as the company of Daphne, Palm, and Nissa, the other Grass-types on the team, and pretty much anyone, whether they're teammates or visitors.

Hatched as Mareep --> Evolved to Flaaffy
After sparks flew all over the place from an Electric Egg Hyrem had, the eggshell followed, and it revealed a fluffy, happy Mareep, reminding Hyrem of the Flaaffy his dad has, so he decided to accept her into his "flock" and become her "shepherd". Now a Flaaffy herself after dealing the winning blow against a rampaging Bubbles, Conis has lots of potential, and she has many practical uses. First, she can recharge Delilah if the need arises, thanks to Delilah's Volt Absorb ability. Second, Selina thinks of her fluffy wool as a great place to snuggle and curl up for a nap; she doesn't worry about any Static affecting her because she's Limber like that, so she has a very exclusive privilege at the moment. Even Amethyst thinks of this silly Pokemon as useful, though she uses Conis in a very unique way: she regularly Wraps herself around the Electric-type and does her best to trigger Conis's Static ability on purpose. Why? She knows that as a result of the paralysis, her body will have an excuse to Shed her Skin, and then she'll have more room to grow! (she also gets to mess with Conis in the process) Clever girl!

Well, you had to see another adoption coming, didn't you? But hey, it's an Electrike, so I think Hyrem knew what he was doing. Benjamin, like all puppies, has nothing but love for his human, and Laika has already taught Benji quite a few of his tricks ... like how to pounce on Hyrem so he can lick his face, for instance! Thanks to this, Hyrem is now routinely double-teamed by his puppies, making them much more difficult to stop. Benji also likes Conis since they were two Electric-types introduced to the team in roughly a week, so they share something in common. Benji is pretty straightforward in battle since he just likes to rush into things, even when it's not such a good idea. Yeah, Hyrem's working on that currently, but I doubt that flaw of his will go away anytime soon. Besides, its something that makes him pretty lovable in his own special way!

Traded as Eevee --> Evolved to Espeon
Originally named Rue, this Eevee was one of a famous litter of 14 brothers and sisters (and a shiny half-brother) that Wes once owned, but he eventually decided to trade them all away to different trainers who would love and care for them more than he would. When he traded this particular one away to Hyrem, however, he told him that Rue was his favorite out of the whole litter because she was so well behaved despite being the runt and that Hyrem would have to promise to take extra special care of her. Now named Carla, she brings her good manners to a team that can get rowdy at times, though Sera and Delilah find her to be a nice change of pace from all the lady pranksters and seducers on the team. She also enjoys visiting with her brothers and sisters whenever she sees them, except for Cyanide since they are polar opposites of each other.

As Carla bonded more and more with Hyrem, she eventually evolved into an Espeon while on his lap one morning at the bar when the sun shone right onto Carla and she received a special vision. Her powers of precognition are now known to her, though neither Hyrem nor his other Pokemon know about this, except Sera, whose innate psychic powers clued her in to the fact. But whether Carla's visions will show happiness... or heartache... is unknown.

Adopted as Shinx --> Evolved to Luxio --> Evolved to Luxray
About five months after he put in a request for one, Hyrem finally got a call from the Adoption Center stating that a male Shinx was available, and he didn't hesitate to pick up the little lion cub and add him to the family! After a couple of years, Luke's training finally paid off, and he evolved into a Luxio during a sparring match with Silas, his main rival. Luke actually has a biological brother, a Shinx belonging to Connor named Vinay, but the two have very distinct personalities. One apparent sign of this is the best place the brothers like getting scratched; while Vinay likes getting scratched on the chin, the ears are Luke's sweet spot. Hyrem believes the scratch spots have very significant meanings: Vinay's sweet spot being the chin, the person scratching him would usually face him to do so, and would see his happy face staring back, showing just how affectionate he is. Luke's ears, on the other hand, are normally scratched with the person situated behind him, and this not only allows him to keep an eye on what's in front of them and be in the best position to protect the person if necessary, but it also shows the Luxray that he is being treated as a dominant figure and will be tasked to be a leader someday.

For now, Luke prefers to be alone and work alone, only giving his trainer the time of day. While Hyrem's other Pokemon wouldn't mind working together as a team in double or triple battles (though some of them are a little picky about who their teammates should be), this Luxray only wishes to be in single battle combat, or, if necessary, to be one against multiple opponents. He isn't a great team player, and would rather shoulder the burden on his own rather than ask for help. It's pretty hard for him, however, to get away from his adoring fans, such as Selina, whom he has to turn down time and time again to her annoyance.

As a birthday present, Hyrem's father gave him this egg, though there were no clues as to what it was at all. However, when it finally hatched a week later, Hyrem knew this Dunsparce was very special somehow and added yet another snake to the team. Hah, Charlie sure is "special", all right: when he was shown the Pokeball he would live in, one taste on that split tongue of his, and he has remained hopelessly addicted to chocolate ever since. It's not that he won't eat anything else, it just has to have chocolate on it somehow, even if there's only a drop of cocoa on his meal. And since Amethyst had also learned how to use Chocolate Magic that day, it's no wonder he considers her a very good friend. And it's also no wonder he considers anything (or anyone!) Amethyst uses her sugary move on the best thing (or creature!) he's ever tasted yet! Naturally, Amethyst has taken advantage of her new powers and her new "puppy" quite frequently, so here's a word of warning: if you make her angry enough for her to spit chocolate on you (and if she hasn't killed and eaten you after that, which she has been doing less and less of, I'm very sorry to say), don't be surprised if you then find this fellow doing his darnedest to clean every last drop of chocolate off of you, regardless of how ticklish you may be!

Hatched as Trapinch --> Evolved to Vibrava
This Trapinch hatched while Hyrem took a nap waiting for the hatch, then fit his trainer's face in his mouth so he could wake him up. Quite some time passed before he evolved into a Vibrava, and with that came a massive change in personality. One of the biggest differences in character is that he acts like he knows everything and that he's the best (when he clearly isn't...not yet, at least~). He's the literal embodiment of an Icarus complex (well, second after Icarus himself) and gets extremely embarrassed when he finds out he's wrong about something. And this Vibrava still has a lot to learn!

Purchased as Eevee --> Evolved to Flareon
Since the Coins for Prizes store had announced its changes, it had declared that it wouldn't sell any more Eevee, and customers had only three weeks to purchase them. Not sure where or when he'd come across any more Eevee, Hyrem decided to go for it since he had the cash for it. Happy ended up getting purchased at about the same time his littermate, now named Eve, was bought by Melissa, so it should be noted that he does have a sister. During a special party for Carla's Eevee family, appropriately named the "Eeveening", Happy was trying to show Todd, one of Carla's brothers, one of Hyrem's evolution stones. When he tried to get it, however, he slipped, and the Fire Stone fatefully dropped on him, causing him to evolve into a handsome Flareon. Happy likes to play and have fun, though he is a tad insensitive to some things, mainly pertaining to love. He tends to tease about certain Pokemon couples, and they all happen to be the ones most likely to get him clobbered whenever he does so! You know, Amethyst x Marvolo, Cyanide x Pom, those ones. He also seems to have an interest in Carla, though she isn't the least bit interested in him, even after he evolved. She claims that it is because he is so reckless, especially with regards to his evolution, and she refuses to have a serious relationship with someone like that.

Hatched as Houndour --> Evolved to Houndoom
After hatching quite a few Numel, Hyrem's next Fire Egg finally hatched something different... this stoic Houndour, to be precise! Silas is very well-behaved compared to Laika and Benji, and now that he has evolved into a Houndoom he has fully accepted his role as leader of Team Flash Fire, a squad of four different Fire-type Pokemon with the ability Flash Fire, the other members being Happy, Kenna, and Ahri. He's still a dog though, so there may be an occasional uncharacteristic moment where he joins in on the older dogs' fun, especially when his fireproof chew toy is brought out for him to play with! He and Luke consider each other to be rivals and will have competitions to see whether lion or Doberman wins out. Just like Luke, Silas is loyal to his trainer and his training, but unlike Luke he has a pack mentality and has the sense to know when to work with other Pokemon (especially when it comes to Team Flash Fire) instead of trying to deal with things alone and is also willing to put his life on the line for others which may be a part of his Fire-type instincts. In short, this "hell hound" is more knight than cur in all aspects!

Hatched as Ponyta --> Evolved to Rapidash
The next egg after Silas's hatching was this beautiful foal whose fiery mane and good temperament won Hyrem over, not to mention the idea of her being a trusty steed for him! Kenna's favorite food is pears, which is funny considering she doesn't like Aspear Berries because of their sourness. She's a fast eater regardless of what she eats, though, and she won't hesitate to clean up the mess, especially when she's hand-fed! In fact, she's fast at about everything she does. It didn't take her long to learn how to walk without wobbling, and her evolution to Rapidash was even accelerated somewhat so Hyrem could use her to ride around Cloud Garden. Her best friends are Happy and Silas, her teammates in Team Flash Fire. She's also gotten along with Toby, Conis, and Palm, they've been great at sharing the food they've been given. Them herbivores got to stay together when some 'a their teammates can eat 'em 'f they were allowed ta!

Hatched as Bagon --> Evolved to Shelgon --> Evolved to Salamence
For the fourth hatch in a row, Hyrem has decided to keep an egg he hatched himself. Amazing! Ever since she was a Bagon, however, Wendy has been pretty outgoing from the start. Especially now that she is a big, scary Salamence, she has no problems letting everyone know what a powerful dragon she really is. She particularly enjoys scaring her trainer because he gives the best reactions every time. Along with that, her friendship with Brittany, Vi, and Zyra has become somewhat awkward since she fully evolved before any of the other three, and she is younger than any of them! She and Carla are still good friends now that the future predicted for her by the Espeon has more or less been realized. All of this, plus earning the respect of Sera, Amethyst, and Delilah have made her a definite force to be reckoned with as Sera and Delilah try to help Wendy control her temper, while Amethyst shows her how to use her temper as a weapon in battle.

Hyrem had a slight interest in Melissa's hatchling Axew, not too much to trade for it. Except when Wendy came into the picture and, heh, "talked" him into getting the little guy. Ammon's a friendly fellow, a bit playful, but knows not to roughhouse too much. He plays the most with Wendy, but he gets along with Sarkhan and the snakes on the team too. Most importantly, he shows restraint; while he is proud to be a dragon, he doesn't vaunt it like others typically do, making him a prime example of the individuality of Pokemon. Which is perfect, considering he was named after a valiant prince who offered himself in servitude to a rival nation and successfully defended that king's flocks from bandits by chopping all their arms off! Not that this Ammon is going to do such a thing (then again, he may end up doing so, I don't know), but as those tusks of his grow, he'll certainly have that capability!

Traded as Gible --> Evolved to Gabite
And Marik makes four dragons for Hyrem! Charm, a friend/rival of Hyrem's was pretty close to dropping this Gible off to the Adoption Center, but he was willing to let this team try to handle more jaws of death from this guy. As a Gible, Marik didn't know much other than biting hard on anything that came close enough to him, but now, as a Gabite, he has a little more control over his jaw strength. He still likes to sink his fangs into everything, it's just that he knows a little better about what to bite hard and what to chew Wendy's tail. From this, it's become more evident that Marik is interested in Wendy not as a snack but as a lover, though she doesn't show the same interest in him, so he better be careful, or he'll be the chew toy!

Caught in Arcane Realm
This Zangoose once ruled over all of the Forest of Adventure, and many trainers unlucky enough to step into his territory were never heard from again. He even defeated Luke, Pike Queen Lucy's brother, in a battle and stole a precious treasure, the Toxic Orb from him. However, when Hyrem came to inspect the Arcane Realm, a battle broke out between him and Luke, and the Zangoose watched with interest, taking note of the Seviper nearby. He found his opportunity to strike when Amethyst went in his direction to investigate and ordered two Dustox to put her to sleep, allowing him to claim his first prisoner and lure Hyrem into following him, with Leila and Laika pursuing after him. Laika was easy to goad into a pitfall, though Leila was more difficult to break away from, at least until the Dustox put her to sleep as well, thus giving him a second prisoner.

Hyrem was forced even more to follow until he finally reached the Zangoose sitting on a wooden throne. Zangoose then had two Pinsir come out with their horns around Leila and Amethyst's necks and ordered two Ariados to battle Hyrem. However, having encountered the Ariados earlier, Hyrem was able to sway the spiders enough, forcing Zangoose to kill one of them and threaten the other one to fight or die along with its friend. Thanks to some quick thinking by Hyrem and Laika, they allowed Ariados the chance to escape, and it took that chance with gusto, though it left Laika open to be tortured by Zangoose, the threat of Leila and Amethyst's executions leaving the Mightyena no will to fight back until he eventually fell to the Toxic Orb he stole from Zangoose. Just when Zangoose was about to signal the death of all three Pokemon, Luke and Sera rushed in to save the day and free Amethyst from her captor, then Leila. Amethyst then had Zangoose's full attention while he ordered the Pinsir and Dustox to deal with everyone else, though the Bug-types eventually fell to Luke and Hyrem's teamwork. It all came down to an epic clash between Seviper and Zangoose, but in the end Amethyst completely overpowered her rival, and Hyrem was able to capture Zangoose and remove him from his domain.

Now named Rengar, he was allowed to keep his coveted trophy, the Toxic Orb, but that's all the slack Hyrem or the older Pokemon have given him. Sera and Laika both still remember what Rengar did with Amethyst and Leila and aren't willing to forgive him anytime soon, Amethyst now thinks she is given free reign over him because she defeated him in battle, and Leila... well, she just doesn't like how her flirting is straight up refused by Rengar. Since none of the other Pokemon had as much exposure to him, they've more or less welcomed him, though Sarkhan and Icarus are sure to call him out should he treat them with disrespect. Daphne actually welcomed the idea of a scheming Zangoose to the team because it meant they could put their heads together and come up with the best ways to prank someone. Rengar has even struck a deal with Aisa: the more things of Hyrem's he can deliver to her, the better. Seemingly the quickest to come to Rengar's defense, however, is Vi, as she has had her fair share of oppression from a certain pair of Seviper, though has now been able to put up a fight ever since she evolved into a Blaziken.

As far as the relationship between trainer and Pokemon, Hyrem probably feels the most distance from Rengar than from any other Pokemon on his team. He refuses to put his trust in Rengar for fear he betrays that trust and does something truly rash. Conversely, Rengar resents Hyrem for stripping him from his domain and putting him in a team with some Pokemon that bully him around, some Pokemon that are waiting for him to make a mistake and pounce on him for it, and tons of weaker Pokemon not worth using as pawns, at least not for the moment. In fact, Rengar has been noted actively disobeying Hyrem and rebelling against him. Hyrem, however, seems convinced that only he can handle this loose cannon, though it may be a very long time before anything resembling a bond is formed between these two.

Traded as Steelix
Hyrem had actually met this Steelix when he was helping Levin evolve him, but after some time Levin decided to let Gram go to someone else, and who better than our snake lover? Thus Gram became Kilogram, a Pokemon very caring toward those smaller than him, including his trainer. As the largest Pokemon on the team, he feels it's his responsibility to protect everyone when necessary, which shows in his refusal to battle without a good reason. He is grateful for Levin's training, however, for without it he would not know Fissure, a powerful execution against those who truly deserve it, for it's hard to know when they will show up...

During another meeting with Levin, Kilogram encountered the Shiny Onix, Oro, who evolved into a Shiny Steelix as a result of the two being traded back and forth to each other's trainers. However, Kilogram could sense the pride Oro had in him, especially after he evolved, and worries even now that he could get someone hurt, even Levin. Furthermore, Kilogram couldn't deny the fact that Oro may begin to see him as a rival and has only increased the intensity of his own training, if only to make sure the gold Steelix won't hurt those he loves in his efforts to surpass the silver Steelix...

Not long after he got Kilogram, Hyrem heard that Okiku was trading away a Tropius. Being reminded of his dad's Tropius, he just had to get the big guy for his own team. Palm is much like the other Grass-type Pokemon on the team in that he likes to spend a long time under sunlight, but he also likes eating various fruit, his most favorite obviously being the banana. What does he do with all this energy and nutrition? Why, grow his own bananas, of course! The more varied his diet is, the better the fruit growing under his chin, and the happier his friends are when he shares them! Palm is best friends with Toby and Zyra since they share typing, egg group, and an affinity for the sun, so they are the Pokemon he shares his fruit with most often. Sarkhan has also taken a liking to Palm since, even though the Tropius is the bigger Pokemon, he's hardly a threat to his position as the alpha male of the team.

Continuing a birthday tradition, Hyrem picked up another Enigma Egg. Little did he know this one would hatch into his second shiny Pokemon ever! This cutie would then be named Marion, after a good friend of Hyrem's who was busy trying to get a PhD in Ghost Pokemon studies. Marion tends to stare at someone she doesn't know in order to study them, and she's not yet sensitive to the idea that staring at someone for a long period of time makes her come across as really creepy. Along with that, her favorite game is staring contests... and she's won every single one she's played against the other members of Hyrem's team so far! She sees Sera as her rival in looks and psychic strength, even though she isn't anywhere near her level, and Sera isn't really interested in encouraging said rivalry.

Traded as Shiny Tynamo --> Evolved to Shiny Eelektrik --> Evolved to Shiny Eelektross
Dave, the fisherman who originally hatched this special blue EleFish, was tempted to keep him at first, but he already had a Tynamo who was much closer to evolving than he was, so he was traded to Hyrem, who could barely believe his luck at getting such a godlike-rare Pokemon. Zatch is just as affectionate as he is rare, always greeting everyone he meets with an energetic Tackle or Spark attack, and now that he has fully evolved into a shiny Eelektross Hyrem is now the recipient of a Thunder Wave before the EleFish hugs him and starts sucking on his entire head! Very excitable, he doesn't tire out as quickly as he did when he was a Tynamo, but whenever he's ready for a good nap he always likes snuggling with someone, either with Hyrem or with his teammates. His closest friends are Delilah, a fellow Electric-type fish, Charlie, who he just so happens to share a taste for a certain chocolate paste with, and Marion, his fellow shiny Pokemon.

Hatched as Treecko --> Evolved to Grovyle
Another particularly lucky hatch produced this Treecko who was wary of him at first but has since grown to tolerate him... as long as he isn't making any dumb wisecracks. In fact, she's what people of the Kanto region would call a "tsukkomi", quick to Pound on anyone who dares to display a sense of humor in front of her too stale for her tastes. More often than not, this is what gets teammates like Happy in trouble since they can't really control the urge to make jokes or funny displays. Of course, that's not the only thing she's quick about; she's very nimble in combat and an efficient hunter of small bugs; her evolution into a Grovyle has since given her the ability to hunt larger bugs, making her a good form of pest control around the base, especially in the summer when swarms of tiny insects are just outside the entrance!

Adopted as Magikarp --> Evolved to Gyarados
Bubbles is a Magikarp Hyrem picked up from the Adoption Center with the intent of giving little Zatch a tankmate whenever he decided he needed some water to swim in so he didn't feel all alone in it, but that plan went out the window after she evolved into a Gyarados. In fact, her evolution didn't just force her to outgrow the tank; her now ravenous appetite along with her huge body means there's no way a handful of food pellets will satisfy her. Not only that, her hunger has driven her to multiple attempts to feed on various smaller teammates, even Hyrem himself! Therefore, he has felt it necessary to keep a very close watch on her whenever she is out of her Pokeball (which is currently only for feeding purposes as other interactions with her are considered dangerous at the moment) and have at least 1-2 Pokemon stronger than her on hand should she get out of control. Amethyst in particular has taken a keen interest in this Gyarados; as long as Bubbles doesn't go after Kinana or Sorano, in which case she would intervene, she has been content just sitting back and watching how her silly trainer tries to raise this leviathan...

Caught in Friend Safari as Froakie --> Evolved to Frogadier
Hyrem met this Froakie with fancy footwork as a trainer named Remy guided him through the Friend Safari, a special place that introduced Pokemon from the Kalos region into Fizzy Bubbles. As soon as he saw how good of a dancer she was, he tried playing music in order to bond with her, and it worked up until a Honedge crashed the party. Thanks to some more clever playing of music, Hyrem was able to pacify the Honedge, but when he tried to capture the Froakie, Honedge intervened and tried to get itself captured instead! Fortunately, this frog was able to reach the Safari Ball first, and she is now a fully-fledged member of the team.

Henrietta's dancing prowess isn't her only talent, it seems; she is currently learning how to play the same flutes that brought her to Hyrem in the first place! Her love for music and dance has made her fast friends with Daphne due to her grass-whistling, and her evolution into a Frogadier has made her a fantastic bug-hunting partner for Nissa; whatever little insect Nissa can't reach in the water, Henrietta is able to snap up for herself, and they have also worked together in an effort to ambush their prey. However, thanks to her bad encounter with that Honedge, she has developed a fear of large blades, including Amethyst's tail blade, which suits Amethyst just fine since she now has a new plaything already leashed by a fear of her. She also prefers to keep a good distance away from Icarus's sharp wings, even though he has no intention of harming her (which she is aware of and trying her best to keep from coming between their friendship). As long as those two Pokemon are away from her, she has no problem providing some good entertainment for everyone!

Traded as Vulpix --> Evolved into Ninetales
Ever since meeting Marion's Ninetales, Aislyn, Hyrem has wanted a Vulpix of his own. Well, after a little "Christmas gift exchange" with Charm, he finally got himself an adorable, six-tailed kit that will cuddle with him at a moment's notice. Ahri is so obsessed with cleanliness, however, that she refuses to touch any dirty surface, and she regularly cleans herself, for she never knows when she may have touched something with germs on it. This even extends to those around her: if she can tell that either Hyrem or one of her teammates has not bathed recently she will either ignore them or demand (to their annoyance) that they do so or get a face full of Ember, and now that she is a Ninetales with a large amount of spells in her arsenal Ember is considered her way of being lenient!

Compounding this problem for Hyrem at least is the fact that she has figured out how link his mind to hers, which means she can read his thoughts and know without a doubt if he is clean! The one thing potentially balancing this quirk of hers out, however, is the newcomer Keori; ever since Ahri and Keori bonded together that fateful springtime event, Ahri's attention has shifted more towards her younger Alolan Vulpix charge and away from the others. Consequently, if asked by Ahri to watch over Keori, most Pokemon would be foolish to refuse such a request, although most Pokemon have also promised to Keori to be "remiss" in keeping her from getting dirty as that is exactly what gets Ahri's attention in the first place!

Traded as Scyther --> Evolved to Scizor
Right after Ethan traded for this Scyther, he had hatched one of his own, and the two immediately began fighting over dominance. Naturally, he wanted to separate the two, so he traded one to Hyrem. Why would Hyrem go for a killer mantis, you ask? Well, he knew Michael had raised a Scizor, so he had planned on getting one for a while and even purchased a Metal Coat for the Scyther to hold until it evolved. This particular specimen is quite a showoff, a bit like Icarus is, which does put the two into conflict at times. He does take his training very seriously, however, as he wants to be stronger and ready to eventually battle his former teammate and rival, Razor. Fortunately, Michael is always there to give Hyrem pointers on raising Chex just like he is with raising Brittany. Speaking of Brittany, they get along quite well as fellow training partners under Michael's tutelage, and Michael...well, he feels like he's back in the good times of his old life, thanks to Brittany and Chex!

Purchased as Feebas --> Evolved to Milotic
As soon as Hyrem heard that the Coins for Prizes had opened and was offering Feebas for sale, he jumped at the chance to cash in a large bundle of coins for a female because he had wanted one ever since seeing Pike Queen Lucy's Milotic at the Arcane Realm. Now that he has Juvia, she has become the latest Pokemon he has been doting on, which suits her just fine since that's the whole reason she used Hypnosis on him! Sera and Ahri have both been made aware of this, however, and Ahri has made efforts to keep the slippery sea serpent out of their trainer's head, though that doesn't stop Juvia from being successful in other ways to garner attention from Hyrem. One drawback to evolving, however, is that she no longer fits in the fish tank Zatch uses, but then again she'd rather not spend another moment in there with an excitable shiny Eelektrik. She's much more comfortable in the underground pool and the network of underwater tunnels it has, mainly because that's where Nami and the other Water-types like to swim around and play in!

Hyrem bought this treasure hoarding Lapras at the same time as he bought Juvia, and the two Water Pokemon have been very good friends ever since. Did I mention she was a treasure hoarder? Well, she is more or less responsible for guarding Hyrem's supplies now that they've been moved close to the pond in the base and has done a very good job of fending off a certain cat thief in the team; every time Selina has tried to steal something and stash it for herself, Nami has been there to give her a good soaking. Worse still for Selina, Nami is rewarded with fish from her catches! If only she'd learn know, not steal supplies under Nami's watch...

Bred by Amethyst x Marvolo
Any son or daughter of Amethyst was bound to be feisty, and Kinana is no exception, especially since she has been under her mother's tutelage from the day she was born. In fact, she may be even bolder because, if she gets in any trouble with her teammates, she can simply tell her mother about what they did (or what she claims they did!) and Amethyst would most likely provide retribution (and it doesn't even matter if Amethyst believes her daughter, she may just decide to do so and call it "retribution"). She does get scolded by her mother sometimes for overstepping her bounds, but that's merely because she isn't strong enough on her own to enforce that. There may come a time in the distant future when Amethyst decides to let Kinana handle things on her own, and there is a risk of her over-reliance on her mother catching up to her in that moment...

Hatched as Dratini --> Evolved into Dragonair
Right as this baby Dratini hatched, the mother/daughter pair of Seviper had big plans for her; under Kinana's insistence, Amethyst decided to adopt Sorano, providing her biological daughter with a baby sister. Both serpents get along splendidly and are an adorable sight to behold when they both nestle within their mother's coils during naptime (though this has become a little awkward as Sorano grows larger). Amethyst is willing to fiercely protect Sorano just as much as Kinana, though as she has evolved into a Dragonair as a result of becoming a mother herself she is now focused on raising her own children, but she still appreciates the help of her mother and sister whenever it is given.

It would be a while before Hyrem got himself a new addition to the team, but he feels this Larvitar is certainly worth the wait. For Gaara, he has been quite content with eating whatever is on the floor of the base...and eating the floor itself...and any boulders within reach...and pretty much anything else. Oh, and if you have a good enough amount of dirt or sweat on you, don't be surprised if you find yourself being licked by this Rock-type as he uses his very coarse tongue to scrape any salt off you!

Ganon is Hyrem's first ever Shadow Pokemon, and he may yet live up to his namesake's reputation! First off, his closed heart means it is impossible for Hyrem to mean anything other than "enemy" to him. Worse still, Ganon is considered yet another glutton in the team as it requires about as much food as Gaara does to sate his hunger. Perhaps the most disturbing thing about this evil Tepig is that he will not hesitate to turn on his teammates or his trainer on a mere whim! At least he isn't subtle about it like some of Hyrem's Pokemon can be...

Caught in Phantom Isle as Frillish --> Evolved to Jellicent
Three children, two sisters and a brother born of wealthy parents looking to invest in Fizzy Bubbles, all walked into Mantine Mania, a popular attraction for many children that went to the amusement park now known as Phantom Isle...none of them walked out alive. They were captured by a mysterious person wearing a Mantine costume and taken underwater, forced to work for the Harvester of Eyes in taking other children just like them. They quickly grew sick of it and attempted to escape, but the Harvester found out and took the youngest sister, Irene, away from them, turning her into the Harvester's new host. Every attempt to rescue Irene was met with failure until the oldest sibling, Ariel, found out how to turn her and her brother into a Ghost Pokemon known as Frillish, one that could live for quite some time until they could find a way to destroy the Harvester.

During that time, they tried to keep as many potential victims away from the Harvester as they could by turning them into other Frillish, but the Harvester knew about everything and had captured the brother, now a male Frillish, and stuffed him into a Pokeball with the label "DECEASED ???" to be used in her ploy to grab three unsuspecting trainers.

Little did the Harvester know that Hyrem would be the one to chance not only upon this blue Frillish but also Ariel and had discovered the Mantine costume's true intentions. He decided to confront the Harvester of Eyes together with Ariel, her brother, and his own Water Pokemon Delilah, who would evolve into a Lanturn in the middle of the battle. After a grueling slog of taking out what seemed like hundreds of eyes and what seemed to him a task too daunting on multiple occasions, he ultimately dealt the final blow to the Harvester, but there was a price to be paid: apparently, there needed to be someone else to take this entity's place, and Ariel volunteered herself so her brother and Hyrem could escape and the lost souls of the children could finally rest in peace.

After that, Ulysses, the middle sibling, decided to join Hyrem and become the second Ghost-type on his team. Now free from the Harvester's hold (for now), he has slowly gained confidence in himself and has remembered how to talk like a human again, though he still stutters as part of his personality. He regards Sera as not only his closest friend but also his dearest love, especially after evolving into a Jellicent while mating with her, and has been invaluable in bringing Hyrem and his partner Pokemon even closer than they have been before, particularly in regards to interpreting the images Sera projects into his mind. In addition, he finds a sort of kinship in Michael, a fellow Ghost-type who once was a human, and the many other Water Pokemon, especially Delilah. In fact, his proper stature learned from his well-being in his past life has become quite a charm for many who encounter him!

Caught in Dream World as Snorunt --> Evolved to Froslass
On Hyrem's first trip into the Dream World, he traveled through icy caves, encountering many Ice Pokemon with unusual abilities for their species. One of the Pokemon was in an extremely dark path, so dark that neither he nor Carla, the Pokemon he brought with him on this particular journey, could see a thing. But he could definitely feel something: a sharp, cold pain in his leg that seemed to start freezing him. Hyrem figured it was a Pokemon just trying to hide behind his leg for whatever reason, but once Carla used her Flash attack it was instead revealed to be a Snorunt that had sunk her fangs into his leg and was actually trying to make a meal out of him! Instead of battling her to fend her off, however, he tried to find her something different to eat, which he the form of an unwilling Vanillite. This Snorunt with a voracious appetite intrigued him nonetheless, and he chose to take her out of the Dream World and onto his team as a result, but not before she took another attempt on his life before the dream ended. Carla could do nothing but watch as her beloved trainer was about to be feasted on by this tiny predator, and the traumatic experience has left her with an extreme dislike for her new teammate, now named Tsurara.

Apparently, however, Tsurara's Snorunt body was a prison for a more powerful being that was released when exposed to a Dawn Stone, thereby essentially "evolving" her into a Froslass. One backstory later, and it was revealed that Tsurara, also known as Emma, had an association with the Harvesters, but was kicked out of the "club" and banished to the Dream World in her Snorunt state. Now that she has been set free from her situation, however, she has willingly chosen to stay a part of the team, at least until they help her exact revenge on the Harvesters that slighted her. Her taste for flesh hasn't changed much since evolving, but at least she isn't at her allies' throats every time they turn around, though she is still under Carla's watch just in case. And though she is keeping her hunger in check that doesn't stop her from requiring sustenance every now and then, and almost anything she can lure into her grasp is fair game. At least she leaves a recognizable body of flesh for her friends to feed on nowadays...

Won in Halloween Raffle
Because of a special Halloween Raffle, this odd looking Bulbasaur is now a part of the team, and Zyra couldn't be happier to have him to care for. The one difference Gordon has over normal Bulbasaur is that the plant on his back has already matured into a pumpkin, thus making him unable to evolve because the plant cannot grow into a flower which is necessary to trigger the mutation. Instead, he simply grows bigger in size to compensate for the lack of evolution; therefore, he has the goal to become the biggest Bulbasaur in existence without the worry of evolving. In the meantime, Zyra has been great at raising him, and Toby has been nothing but helpful as the two Grass-types get some early experience on raising children in preparation for the time they reproduce and create their own offspring.

Traded as Chimecho
It wasn't enough to have one Shadow Pokemon, but Karmas assured Hyrem that, although this Chimecho was certainly unique, he wasn't anything particularly dangerous. And he was right...kinda. Karthas isn't so much evil like most other Shadow Pokemon are as he is annoying. He spends half the time perfecting his rock star voice, beginning to go through his metal rock phase. Worst of all is when he does this at night, when almost everyone else is trying to sleep! His loudness also irks Tsurara to no end, though she has yet to get a good opportunity to silence the chime...

Yet another Shiny Pokemon to come into Hyrem's possession, Ammit was obtained right at the grand opening of the new Adoption Center, where there was tons of rare Pokemon waiting for a home, including two other Shiny Pokemon in addition to this Shiny Sandile. Ammit seems to prefer the bad boys, however, as she has taken a liking to Ganon and his plotting for domination...when he isn't letting instinct throw himself at someone half the time. She is also yet another Pokemon to take more than a few pointers from Amethyst as that is how she thinks she can best help her evil, porky friend achieve his goals.

During an event for an Easter egg hunt, Hyrem went to the Ice Caverns in Springtide Isle and found an egg that hatched an Alolan Sandshrew, but she got scared of Hyrem and Ahri and hid inside a small ice house. A familiar trainer, Jess, was able to coax her out, but during that time Hyrem and Ahri bonded with a Pokemon that Jess hatched, an Alolan Vulpix. The two trainers soon decided they were both better off with the other hatchling, so they traded the two baby Ice-types, and Hyrem ended up with Keori. Despite not being her biological mother, Ahri is considered such by Keori, which suits the older Ninetales and her habits perfectly. The two Fox Pokemon are found together more often than not, but when Keori is not by Ahri that is when she starts getting herself into trouble. She can't resist playing games with the other younger Pokemon which inevitably get her dirty. Naturally, this gets her a scolding and a long tongue bath from Ahri, though neither one of them mind going through the latter. In fact, Ahri suspects Keori may be getting herself dirty for that very purpose, but she doesn't care. And neither does Hyrem, nor the rest of the team for that matter, as it means Ahri spends less time nagging them for their bad habits! This means Keori has a long list of bodyguards, namely every single Pokemon desperate to keep the "matriarch" of the family placated so they can go on with their normal lives instead of worry about getting the dirt cleansed off of them by fire!

During the second adoption run at the Adoption Center, Hyrem, with the help of Keori, managed to enlist the lively Fennekin known as Balthazar. He's a lot like Icarus: showoff, ladies' man, and usually someone who has all his stunts backfire on him. The differences? He doesn't fly, but he can cast spells. Oh, and he actually has a vixen friend, though a certain older vixen does not approve of it. Not that this deters him or anything...

As the adoption spree continued, Hyrem's next Pokemon would be a heavier-than-normal Aron, and, while she can carry her own weight perfectly fine, she chooses not to for the most part and just lies down somewhere. It's difficult to get her to move as well; only the promise of delicious, shiny iron gets her on her feet. More often than not, it's Gaara that helps her find these sources as he's chewing his way through the mountain, and the two of them together and unchecked would probably devour the entire mountain Hyrem's base is located--literally eating everyone out of house and home! It's no wonder Kilogram is tasked with watching the both of them, though they do appreciate his enormous presence whenever they get into trouble.

Yay more weirdos! Hyrem couldn't resist continuing his adoption spree, and the staff there are probably grateful for that because this Girafarig named Janice has a very odd taste for plants...fleshy plants. You know, as in Grass Pokemon. And her Sap Sipper ability conveniently makes her an excellent counter to those Pokemon, and there were a lot of them at the Adoption Center, and...yeah, you know where that would've gone. As far as Hyrem's team is concerned, it's probably for the best that Palm and the other Grass Pokemon are able to provide some good food for her, although Nissa and Gordon have never wanted to be farther away from any teammate than Janice...

At some point, Hyrem is going to be overwhelmed by these dangerous Pokemon, right? Another adoption, another meat eater, this one finding a bond with Bubbles, a.k.a. one of the few Pokemon that can out-speed her in the water. And she respects that in one of the newer members of Hyrem's team. Especially because, not only is Fizz faster than her, he's faster than those she normally tries to catch, and he regularly assists her in slowing those things down enough so she can catch them. Because of this, she is learning to share her food with him, allowing this deadly example of cooperation to continue in full force.

Bred by Seshiro x Shisato
Now that the Breeding Center was much more accessible, Hyrem was able to give his two beloved Arbok what they always wanted: the opportunity to sire their own offspring. Sachi is their firstborn child, and little did Hyrem know when she hatched that she would not only inherit all sorts of tricks from her father but also inherit her mother's original personality: a mind for mischief and mayhem, she is learning from everyone around her while waiting for her own chance to strike. And it may be this pension for scheming that emboldens her mother to embrace her old self again as she and Seshiro teach their daughter the ways of Poison-type Pokemon...

About a month after taking Janice out of the Adoption Center, Hyrem finally found a Grass-type from there that was willing to tolerate her presence. In fact, Marcus would be more than willing to tolerate her presence...if she would just allow him to close those big jaws of his around her! Meanwhile, Janice tries to nibble on his leafy body, but he seems just as elusive to her as she is to him! At some point, one of the two is going to best the other, and who knows what would happen whenever that time comes...

Just before the Adoption Center returned to its normal operation, Hyrem was able to go in for one last Pokemon, this Numel sharing a particularly special moment with him. Pelea doesn't have much setting her apart from other Numel that Hyrem has had in the past, but the bond she developed with him is so great that she wants to be with him as much as she can. Being a newer member of the team, however, she has a hard time competing with the other Pokemon who want his attention, but at least she has Janice, Kenna, and Conis to talk to when she can't be with her trainer.

Bred by Sera x Ulysses
And now we come to me, Brian, the son of Sera and Ulysses and one of Hyrem's most beloved Pokemon! I like having lots of other Psychic Pokemon to talk with, plus I have a bunch of other friends as well, though I do get teased by Kinana and Sachi and Suki and Kima a lot since I'm...well, snack-sized at the moment. That is one reason I hope evolution comes for me soon, though I do also want to evolve to have a better capacity for my psychic powers.

Next up is actually another Pokemon from the Adoption Center, my good friend and training partner, Anjali! She actually predicted we would visit her and just...wanted to join us. Of course, none of us were going to refuse that, especially not me, though she hasn't revealed why she wanted to be with us and be my training partner...I haven't asked her yet, after all.

There can't be enough of these serpents in our big family, right? This one also came from the Adoption Center, just like Seshiro and Shisato did, and having been there all alone for months she gets into a fit whenever no one else is around and never wants to leave anyone's side. This clingy disposition is either very annoying or very endearing depending on the Pokemon you ask, but at least she has Seshiro and Shisato as foster parents that keep nearly constant company with her, nurturing her just like they do with Sachi. When they aren't around, she turns to the other snakes, Amethyst, Kinana, and Sorano, for company, and when that fails...well, I usually just hope I'm not the one Pokemon around when she gets desperate.

Bred by Sarkhan X Wendy
Just like there couldn't be enough Ekans or Seviper on the team, the same could be said for Druddigon, and the dragons who gave birth to Kima would absolutely agree. Kima takes more after her mother than her father, in the which she regards her trainer as her favorite chew toy, though she at least knows to keep him in one piece. She does like it when her stepbrother and stepmother visit, or when she visits them, as that is when she and Aletri get to spar and play together.

Bred by Icarus x Atalanta
Right as Hyrem was about to leave the Breeding Center with Kima, Icarus insisted that he stay there because he had found true love, though he never said who it was with or what Pokemon they would be breeding. So it was certainly a surprise when Hyrem saw this little chick hatch out of her egg, and he couldn't help but fall in love with her just as much as Icarus did. Cassandra's natural preference to be active at night does seem to conflict with things, however, particularly when her father wants to do things during the day. You know, when all she wants to do is sleep? Yeah, this father-daughter relationship is going to take some time while they figure out how to do things without causing problems for each other...

Captured during Cloud Garden Winter Campaign
Part of the forces led by an imposing Glalie that captured the Starline Waterfall, this Bergmite was one of a fair few whose parents were killed by the powerful Ice Pokemon and did his bidding in order to avoid the same fate. Fast forward to the battle to take back the waterfall, and this poor creature was all but felled by one attack from Kilogram before being captured by Hyrem. Being a recent acquisition, he still hasn't gotten over the death of his parents nor the sound beating he received from Kilogram, and as such he remains afraid of both the Steelix and Tsurara. But whereas Kilogram seeks to help Svanir get over his fear of him Tsurara sees him as a pet at the best of times and a regenerative food supply at the worst of times. All of this means that it may take some time before this Bergmite is truly acclimated onto Hyrem's team...

One of two Fossil Pokemon Hyrem obtained out of the Casino Heist Hatches, traded from Gary for Hyrem's Tirtouga, this Cranidos follows his most basic instincts: bash his head into everything and then start chomping on whatever got flattened by him. Which works when he finds something he's supposed to eat, but he has yet to learn who is friend or food. And it's hard to teach him about that when he doesn't understand what anyone says except for his prehistoric buddy Quill, so he mostly learns the hard way. Even then, it's only the bigger Pokemon that have taught him not to mess with them; the smaller Pokemon are simply out of luck and have no choice but to try and run, and I can't even do that when I'm just a Ralts! SOMEONE HELP ME!!

The other Fossil Pokemon Hyrem got from the many Casino Eggs that hatched, this one belonging to his friend Keith, Quill isn't as violent with his interactions as Dome is, but he has not failed to get into any less trouble than his Cranidos friend has. This is due to the raptor going through his own teething phase as he learns for himself what kind of bite force he can do and what kind of bite force he should do. He is a little more successful at finding friends in his fellow Flying Pokemon like Icarus and Cassie, but it is a bit strained due to his inability to understand and speak everyone else's language. The only Pokemon who does understand him is Dome, who shares his more primitive language, though they are still trying to figure out how to have a relationship that doesn't involve Dome attempting to ram into his nose every few minutes.

As if two Fossil Pokemon weren't enough, this Kabuto obtained from Alex's Casino Egg seems just as primitive as the others. For starters, he can't understand anyone other than Dome or Quill, which seems to be a reoccurring pattern with these ancient Pokemon. Face has a particularly bad habit of trying to jump on someone else's face in an attempt to latch onto it and eat it off, hence his name. Right now, most other Pokemon can ward him off or are near Pokemon that can remove him for them, but as he gets stronger it may take more and more effort to do so...

Adopted as Frillish --> Evolved to Jellicent
No information is available on this Pokemon yet...

It was a long time coming, but after trading away Akali to Jayson, Hyrem ended up getting this tiny grass snake whose favorite activities are sleep, sleep, and more sleep! Not much can disturb Jared from his slumber, and even if it does he still doesn't move around much. It's really only when food is involved that he comes anywhere close to being animated, and even then he just needs to resolve it in some way, then go back to sleep. It is worth noting that his favorite place to sleep is right in Hyrem's arms or atop the coils of Kinana, Sachi, or Suki, though he tends to get in trouble with the Poison-type snakes for doing so...

Another Pokemon Hyrem had no clue he would end up with was a third Shadow Pokemon, this one being about as mindless as Ganon and as destructive as Gaara and Joanna, trying to fill the base with as many holes and tunnels as possible. This of course, gives Laika a very important job: fill in the holes Edgar leaves behind. Which isn't easy, there's a lot of holes, and a few of these holes actually get used by various teammates sometimes. Maybe Edgar has a place in this team after all!

Hatched by Vi x Rengar
The next couple of Pokemon to find themselves with a child was Vi and Rengar, and their Torchic seems to be quite the appealing snack; even Thomas's dad can't resist trying to seize the little kid for himself! Not that Rengar has found any success, mind; his mother has always been right there to keep the Zangoose in check. Though there's also Kinana who seems to have a particular interest in Thomas, and right now, if Vi wasn't watching, she'd be able to chase him down quite easily!

Hyrem wasn't sure if he would be getting another Pokemon from the Adoption Center so soon, but he had his eye on this Tympole for a while after his adventure in the Black Bayou introduced him to the Pokemon's evolved forms, so he took this little Water-type thinking he might make a good friend for Henrietta, and he was right: she and James hit it off as soon as they met! Though the older Frogadier does have to make sure the little Tympole stays out of trouble, especially when it's him that tries to come to her defense!

As it was revealed he now had a rock puppy, Hyrem took the Rockruff home, where he instantly gained quite a few other dog friends like Laika and Benji, and even Silas took a liking to him. Selina...not so much, especially when his pranks get the better of the feline, thanks to the occasional assist from Leila. Most important, however, because he is one of the dogs, that means he gets to add to the pile-on whenever Hyrem returns home from errands, making the actual ritual take longer because he makes it that much harder to escape!

This Mienfoo, so easily flustered when seen training, is nothing short of adorable, and it's easy to see why Hyrem picked her up from the Adoption Center. She is quite shy about her affection but is affectionate nonetheless, able to make friends with the equally shy Henrietta as well as most of the other younger Pokemon on the team. Due to their personalities, her best friend is actually Thomas, though this does put her on Kinana's bad side for whatever reason.

Little did Hyrem know that when he found this precious little Shiny Deino, one that could be sweet and playful in one moment, ferocious and nasty in another moment, and shy and glum in another, that he was actually getting three different personalities in one small body, and even now he isn't aware of her split personalities. But you know who is aware of them? ME! Because I have to put up with her antics quite a bit, and I can't even rely on Confusion to save me because she's Dark-type! So...can someone do a tiny lil' Ralts a favor and help me out here!? PLEEEEEASE!?

Bred by Sorano x Boxcars
Doesn't he have enough of these Pokemon with nasty jaws that can crush a certain tiny, frail Psychic-type in one go!? Apparently not!! This one came from Sorano becoming a new mother, however, so maaaaybe she can talk some sense into her daughter at some point. Or Gnash could just consider herself the boss over the other prehistoric Pokemon, despite having been born months after the boys joined the team. Even Dome answers to her, though she does seem to treat him nicer than the other two. What's also interesting is that, because she was born from a prehistoric Pokemon and a modern one, her language seems to be much less primitive and therefore understandable to all the other Pokemon! Not that her teammates appreciate the fact that they can understand her, though...
