Pokemon Trainer Stories: Pearl's Story

by Noyeh Kaguya

Noyeh Kaguya
Pearl has a hasty personality and a habit of butting into conversations along with exploding with rage if a person does not give him eye contact when he speaks to them. He and Diamond are friends, though Pearl is known for frequently getting them into trouble. Together, they form a Pokémon comedy duo with Pearl acting as the tsukkomi (straight man) of their duo.

Because of a mix-up, he thinks that escorting Ms. Berlitz to Mt. Coronet is part of a reality television show and by accomplishing this task, they will win a prize.

Berlitz, believing the duo to be her bodyguards, gives them Pokédexes, Pokétches, and starter Pokémon from Professor Rowan. Pearl receives a Chimchar, which he nicknames "Chimler", from Berlitz, which has evolved into an Infernape. Along with Chimchar, he also has a Chatot named Chatler. Later he gets a Luxray, that he befriended when the Luxray was still a Luxio. Later, with the help of Crasher Wake, Pearl captures a Tauros, Diglett and a Buizel (which likes to attack Pearl).

During they're journey Diamond and Pearl investigate the information in Charon's notebook, and ultimately end up having to stop Charon's evil plan of capturing all of Sinnoh's legends to take over the world.

His father is a fairly successful Pokémon trainer, and Pearl has learned some useful talents from him; such as the ability to tell what move a Pokémon is going to use just by its stance.​
