A Cabbie, referred to as a Taxi Driver (Japanese: タクシーの運転手 Taxi Driver) in this miniseries, is a recurring character and the only character to appear in all eight episodes of the miniseries.

The Taxi Driver debuted in Letter, where he took Rose and Oleana to a hospital as part of a scheduled visit.

In Training, he took Bea to the Wild Area so she could train. By the end of the episode, he returned to deliver Bea her phone, which she accidentally left behind in the taxi.

In Buddy, he was delivering Hop's Wooloo back home after it got lost and was found by Milo, only for it to jump down when it saw Hop down below. As he proceeded to take both Hop and Wooloo home, he tried talking about their bond, only to discover the two of them had fallen asleep.

In Early-Evening Waves, he took Nessa to Rose's office so she could meet with Oleana, and then to Wyndon Stadium.

In Assistant, he took Chairman Rose and Oleana back to their office after a long day of work.

In Moonlight, he took Allister and Tommy to the hospital John was staying at so that Tommy could apologize to him for their earlier quarrel.

In Sky, multiple Taxi Drivers transported children from the hospital to the stadium for Leon's match. Soon after, the recurring Taxi Driver took John to the stadium, but he landed them on a mountain when John spotted Leon on top of it. The Taxi Driver sent Leon and John to the stadium alone on his Corviknight so that they could arrive in time despite the heavy headwinds. The day after the match, the Taxi Driver was reading a newspaper article about the match between Leon and Raihan when Victor and Gloria approached him and asked him for a ride.

In The Gathering of Stars, the recurring Taxi Driver took Leon all across the Galar region as he handed out invitation letters for the Galarian Star Tournament. Another Taxi Driver and his Corviknight was also seen outside Wyndon Stadium.


Corviknight is the Taxi Driver's only known Pokémon. It is used for the Flying Taxi service.

None of Corviknight's moves are known.

A Cabbie was one of Leon's onlookers at Hammerlocke in Stealth!! Infiltrate the Energy Plant.

In Chomp!! It's Dracovish, a Cabbie who was a Macro Cosmos's in disguise was sent with his cohorts to Route 9 Tunnel to dispose of a wild Dracovish that suddenly Dynamaxed. The Dracovish was saved by Marvin, who used his Sniffler to stun everyone long enough for him to catch Dracovish and escape. Afterward, they reported their failure to Oleana and were ordered to stand by in Wyndon.

In Rumble!! The Horrific Darkest Day, two Cabbies were seen informing Milo that the Flying Taxi was unavailable due to the mass outbreak of Dynamaxed Pokémon.
