Friends and Foes
The Pokémon Trainers
At the start of your game, choose whether you want to play as a boy or girl Trainer. No matter which Trainer you choose, you'll have the same amazing adventure!
The people you'll meet around the Unova region are as varied as the Pokémon you'll encounter
Know Your Foes
Not everybody you'll meet has your best interests in mind: some nefarious characters are bent on causing problems in Unova, and see you as a meddler in their plans. In particular, you'll frequently come face-to-face with Team Plasma, and their goal of stealing other people's Pokémon (among other villainous acts).
Leaders of the Unova Gyms
Throughout Unova you'll discover interesting towns and cities to explore, and many of them contain Pokémon Gyms. You'll need to beat each Gym's Leader to continue on your adventures.
The Pokémon League Elite Four
Collectively known as the Elite Four, Shauntal, Grimsley, Marshal, and Caitlin are four of the toughest Pokémon Trainers in the Unova region.
Pokémon League Champion Alder
When you first lay eyes on Alder, the Pokémon League Champion, he's not looking to battle against you.
