Trainer Name: Sai Hajimoto
Age: 28
Birthplace: Tatakami Village, Saigo Region
Profession: Monk
Appearance: Athletic but not overly muscular, and near-bald as local tradition expects of Saigo's monks, Sai dresses as all Tatakami-natives do: with the traditional robes of the Tower, whose colours change as the student reaches certain achievements. At the moment, he wears the basic black-and-red pattern of the apprentice, despite being recognized as skilled enough to leave Tatakami Tower and keep honing his craft in the vast outdoors.
History: Sai was raised in a stern family, his principles deeply rooted in tradition and the old customs. To him, battle is a sacred art, the ultimate display of ability and mirror of the bonds forged between Man and Pokémon. Such were the values imparted upon him by his late father Samanosuke, the last Sage of Tatakami Tower. He now journeys across the world in search of the strength needed to surpass the current Champion of Saigo, whom he deems unworthy of the title for reasons known only to him.

Bio: Jin was the Pokémon that Sai received upon being accepted into Tatakami Tower after a grueling set of tests - made especially difficult just for him by his father, who was back then the Tower's Sage. Jin shares Sai's vision of battle as the greatest expression of trust and an art above all others, and is always solemn and respectful when it comes to fighting - even if his opponent is not. In a way, Jin is still Sai's pupil, the latter having mastered hidden techniques through years of practice that he now seeks to impart upon his closest companion.

Nickname: Shiou
Gender: Male
Level: 31
Bond: 45
Ability: Cursed Body
Nature: Quirky
Birthday:October 31
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Trade with Marion Ette
Level-up Moves: Shadow Punch, Hypnosis, Lick, Spite, Mean Look, Curse, Night Shade, Confuse Ray, Sucker Punch, Payback, Shadow Ball, Dream Eater
EM/MT Moves: Fire Punch, Giga Drain, Ice Punch, Shadow Storm, Snatch, Thunderbolt, Thunder Punch, Thunder Wave, Uproar
TM/HM Moves: Icy Wind, Psychic, Sludge Bomb, Teleport, Thief
Bio: Shiou was born a long time ago, hatched from an egg by the Queen of Souls and current member of Fizzytopia's Elite Three, Marion Ette. After years under her care, he was gifted to Professor Rorik Pine to aid the foreigner in his research, but the man proved inept at both bonding with it or earning its respect. After a short while, when Rorik was saved by a passing Sai Hajimoto, Shiou became impressed by the monk's power - essentially the antithesis of the incompetenet human he'd been stuck with - and the ghost quickly followed the Saigonese man, defecting from Rorik's team to join Sai's ranks.

Nickname: Kyuki
Gender: Male
Level: 3
Bond: 22
Ability: Snow Warning
Nature: Quiet
Birthday: July 15
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Springtime Event Alolan Egg Hunt
Level-up Moves: Dazzling Gleam, Imprison, Ice Beam, Ice Shard, Nasty Plot, Confuse Ray, Safeguard, Powder Snow
EM/MT Moves: Moonblast
TM/HM Moves: Aurora Veil, Focus Blast
Bio: Kyuki was initially intended to have been hatched by Rorik Pine in his journey across Springtide Isle, but the Professor was attacked by a very eager Wolfgang Lauther - an escaped political prisoner from the region of Heiml - once the Egg was unearthed. As a result, Lauther was the one to have the Egg hatch, but with international authorities closing in on his location, the runaway criminal was forced to leave Fizzytopia and all traces of his activity in the region behind - including Kyuki. Eventually, the ice fox crossed paths with Sai and Jin and, entranced by the strength of their bond, requested to join the monk's team. Kyuki is mild and extremely calm in all circumstances, contemplative in nature and wise beyond his years, preferring to avoid physical confrontation whenever possible and striking from a distance when battle is unavoidable.

Nickname: Kami
Gender: Male
Level: 20
Bond: 19
Ability: Magic Guard
Nature: Calm
Birthday:February 12
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Trade with EpicSquirtle
Level-up Moves: Teleport, Kinesis, Confusion, Disable
EM/MT Moves: Barrier, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Skill Swap, Signal Beam, Thunder Punch, Thunder Wave
TM/HM Moves: Energy Ball, Psychic, Tri Attack
Bio: Kami is a creature spoke of in legend, known to all in Saigo as a being whose never-ending rebirths are heralded by the appearance of mountains in the landscape - such is the intensity of its mental power. Still in an incomplete form, Kami was sought out by Sai who wished to train under him, only for the Psychic-Type to join his team in hopes that the human's passion and dedication could help break his own bonds of weakness. Extremely perceptive but preferring not to involve himself directly in the affairs of humans, Kami rarely intercedes on Sai's behalf, but is a source of unending wisdom that the monk can always turn to for advice.

Nickname: Ryuga
Gender: Male
Level: 20
Bond: 0
Ability: Sheer Force
Nature: Jolly
Birthday: December 6
Ball: Cherish Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: The Hatchery
Level-up Moves: Scratch, Leer, Water Gun, Rage, Bite, Scary Face, Ice Fang
EM/MT Moves: Dragon Claw, Dragon Dance, Metal Claw
TM/HM Moves: Blizzard
Bio: Ryuga was the last Pokemon of Sage Samanosuke Hajimoto, Sai's father. He received training from the White Lion for a short time, before the Sage passed away due to illness. Since then, the other monks of Tatakami Tower had kept Ryuga inside it Ball until the day Sai returned to claim his father's mantle. The Water-Type is uncharacteristically cheerful and impetuous for a Pokemon raised in the Tower, his spirit unbreakable and his fighting spirit indomitable. Ryuga's easygoing attitude offsets Sai's more serious personality, complementing one another perfectly; he, better than anyone, reminds the monk that battling is more than a sacred art - it is fundamentally fun, something Sai forgets all too often...

Nickname: Okuma
Gender: Female
Level: 1
Bond: 0
Ability: Fluffy
Nature: Hasty
Birthday: April 16
Ball: PokéBall
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Adoption Centre
Level-up Moves: Tackle, Leer
EM/MT Moves: -
TM/HM Moves: -
Bio: Okuma is, at the same time, extremely affectionate towards Sai and extremely aggressive towards anyone else. The bear suffered from abandonment issues until Sai picked her up from the Adoption Centre, for which she is forever grateful - it is the only reason why her belligerent nature does not manifest towards Sai, instead being channeled into an overzealous protective instinct that borders on jealousy even towards her other teammates. And such a temperament is extremely dangerous in a Pokemon with such prodigious physical strength...
