Trivia

  • As noted in the character description, Brendan is based on the player character in Hoenn games, with his father being Norman. In addition, Brendan mentions in his Sync Pair Story that he has already beaten his father.

Origin

Brendan's design is based on his appearance in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Treecko is one of the starter Pokémon of Hoenn in the core series games. In addition, animated short series such as Pokémon Generations and the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Animated Trailer depict Brendan with Sceptile as his starter Pokémon. Treecko, Grovyle, and Sceptile's Dex entries come from Pokémon Ruby and Omega Ruby.
