Riley (Japanese: リュウジ Ryūji) is Wanda's husband in Pokémon Adventures.

Riley and Wanda getting married

He first appears in It's Absol-lutely a Bad Omen, as the head of the construction crew in the Rusturf Tunnel, when it unexpectedly collapses on him due to earthquakes. Ruby rescues him.

He and Wanda are later married during the Emerald arc.

In the games

Riley is based on Wanda's nameless boyfriend from Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, trapped on the west side of the breakable rocks in the Rusturf Tunnel.

He will give HM04 (Strength)RSE or the AggroniteORAS if the player helps clear the rocks.


  • The Emerald arc showcases two different characters with the same English name, as Riley of Sinnoh makes a cameo at the end of the chapter.
