Description This Trainer loves Pokémon and adventure. He continues to train in the Alola island challenge, and his skills have even gained him recognition from Professor Kukui.

Elio (Japanese: ヨウ ) is a Pokémon Trainer in Pokémon Masters EX, based on the character of the same name in the core series games. He forms a sync pair with Popplio and its evolutions, Brionne and Primarina. The sync pair can be obtained through sync pair scout, starting on April 17, 2021. The pair's potential can be upgraded to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX from when the pair was first released, which unlocks Elio's EX Style.

Elio also forms a sync pair with his Espeon. This pair can be obtained through a Variety sync pair scout beginning on November 21, 2023. This pair can be raised to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX since it first released, though this pair lacks an EX style.

Popplio → Brionne → Primarina

Popplio can evolve into Brionne once it has reached level 30 through its sync pair story Popplio's Evolution, and then into Primarina once it has reached level 45 through its sync pair story Brionne's Evolution.

Trivia

  • Elio is the only main character who has never appeared in an event story without his opposite-gender counterpart.
  • Elio and Selene are one of two pairs of protagonists that are equally based on the player character from their games of origin, the other being Chase and Elaine.
  • In the story event Galar's Poké Ball Enthusiast, it is confirmed that Elio knows that Professor Kukui is the Masked Royal.
    • This was first implied in the Countdown 2021 log-in bonus, where Elio starts to address the Masked Royal as "Professor" before catching himself.
  • In the Eevee Day Celebration! event Eevee Tales, Elio reveals that he first met his Espeon as an Eevee near Paniola Town.

Origin

Elio's design is based on his appearance in Pokémon Sun and Moon. Popplio is one of the first partner Pokémon of Alola in the core series games. Popplio, Brionne, and Primarina's Dex entries come from Pokémon Ultra Sun.

Elio's Espeon may be based on the Eevee that can be obtained from an unnamed Pokémon Breeder at Paniola Ranch. Espeon is also known as the Sun Pokémon, which matches Elio's name origin of Helios, the Greek god of the sun, as well as Elio being one of the potential main characters of Pokémon Sun. Espeon's Dex entry comes from Pokémon Ultra Sun.
