Falkner (Jp. Name: Hayato)

Hometown: Violet City, Johto
First Appearence In Episode: Fighting Flyer With Fire


Falkner is the Violet City Pokémon Gym Leader. Loving flying type Pokémon, Falkner loves flying on his Pidgeot or Hang-Gliding so that he can feel the same feeling and be with his flying type Pokémon. Falkner is generally a kind person but a fierce trainer. Not usually making friends with the trainers who he encounters and battles, he is more of a battle and go person. Despite this, he shares a close bond with his Flying Pokémon and really enjoys soaring in the skies with them.


Falkner has worked up the ranks and become the Violet City Gym Leader.
