A Garçon in Pokémon Adventures

In What Does Charmander Do When It Dozes, a Garçon in Lysandre Café was seen welcoming Shauna, Tierno, and Trevor. In Malamar Traps, the same Garçon was revealed to be a member of Team Flare. He battled against Sina and Dexio, getting defeated by them and revealing that Lysandre was currently hiding at Pokémon Village.

Another Garçon appeared in Diantha's fantasy in Pinsir Glares.


Swalot was sent out to battle Sina and Dexio, but it was defeated.

None of Swalot's moves are known.
