Nico (Japanese: ニコラ Nikola) is a character of the day who appeared in Breaking Titles at the Chateau!. He is a Trainer who frequently visits the Battle Chateau to battle and increase his rank. He is the older brother of Chester. Together, they have a tendency of rapping their sentences.

While resting at a Pokémon Center with Chester, Nico overheard a conversation between Ash and his friends about the Battle Chateau. Because they were on their way there, Nico and Chester decided to approach them and tell them more about the place. Ash then decided that he wanted to go there and see it for himself.

While Nico had already battled frequently at the Battle Chateau and earned the rank of Baron, Chester was new there, and so Nico wanted to introduce him too. Inside the Battle Chateau, the group was welcomed by Molly and Duke Turner. Since Nico was a frequent visitor, he was officially introduced by Turner in the salon, where Trainers meet up. He was quickly approached by Farrell, another Trainer with the rank of Baron, who accepted his battle request.

For the battle, Nico chose to battle with Fletchinder, while Farrell chose to battle with Dusknoir. Dusknoir took the initiative with Thunder Punch, while Nico chose to let Fletchinder counter with Flame Charge. Dusknoir managed to land the hit and Fletchinder was temporally stunned. However, it quickly redeemed itself and struck back with another powerful Flame Charge, this time defeating Dusknoir. As this was Nico's tenth win at the Battle Chateau, his rank was elevated to Viscount.

Afterwards, he watched the battle between Chester and Ash. Although Chester lost, Nico assured they would train together again and that Chester would win eventually. He then watched the battle between Viola and Grant. After that battle, Nico and Chester said their farewells to Ash and his friends, and they promised to meet up again sometime.
