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