※This contains spoilers about characters up to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet!
Before we get started! In the Pokémon series' X Reader books, the Reader often looks like the protagonist of the game! (For example, they have the same appearance as Victor (Masaru) or Gloria (Yuuri).) It can be a bit confusing, so please note that X Reader is a separate tag!
Leon (Dande) x Reader (Female)
What is Leon (Dande)?
Leon is a character that appears in Pokémon Sword and Shield.
He is relatively unique in the Pokémon series for being identified as a Champion from the very beginning of the story.
He is the strongest figure in the world of Pokémon Sword and Shield, and beating him is the final goal of the game.
He has a bright and cheerful personality, filled with both purity and integrity, as well as an overflowing sense of sportsmanship.
He has a strong sense of responsibility and treats everyone equally despite his position as Champion, earning him a large fanbase.
In Pokémon Sword and Shield, players will receive their partner Pokémon from him.
For those who play Pokémon Sword and Shield, Leon is a really special character, isn't he? You receive your partner Pokémon from him, and ultimately, your journey is to defeat him. Along the way, you encounter him several times.
So it's understandable why people would fall for him! He has such a great personality! Actually, he's directionally challenged, which is not so much a flaw as it is a charming quirk. Not only is he significant in the game, but he also plays a big role in the anime!
Rika (Chiri) x Reader (Female)
What is Rika (Chiri)?
Rika is a character that appears in the latest installment, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
She has a very gallant and cool appearance, showing loyalty, and she is female.
She speaks in a unique manner and has a bright, friendly personality.
However, in the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, she is a staff member who operates the Pokémon League and is also one of the Elite Four.
When she fights as one of the Elite Four, her cheerful demeanor completely changes, and she stands before the player with a very brave and strong appearance.
She is kind of unfair, you know.
She possesses both a masculine gallantry and a feminine grace, making her an incredibly well-rounded character. Plus, she's strong in Pokémon battles. She has so many fans in Japan that people are eagerly awaiting the release of her merchandise!
In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, once you clear the game, you lose the chance to talk to her. However, a DLC is planned for release in September, and there's a chance we could talk to her again! I'm really excited about it. I'd love to see her one more time. I hope everyone will also purchase the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC so we can meet her again!
Raihan (Kibana) x Reader (Female)
What is Raihan (Kibana)?
Raihan is a character who appears in Pokémon Sword and Shield.
He is one of the only eight Gym Leaders in Pokémon Sword and Shield, and as the eighth one, he serves as the ultimate challenge for the players.
He has a combative and daring personality and is also a rival to Leon, the Champion.
Although he has never defeated Leon, his willingness to continue challenging him, as well as his devotion to his fans, makes him a much-loved figure with a large fanbase.
He is so skilled that he could become the Champion in another region, but his primary goal is to defeat Leon.
Given that Raihan is the final Gym Leader, he poses a significant challenge for many players of the game!
Pokémon X Reader
While he has the aura of a strong competitor, his continued challenges to Leon make him a relatable figure! The fact that he uses Double Battles, a different battle format, is also quite memorable. If you play Pokémon Sword and Shield, Raihan is sure to leave a lasting impression!
