Reason: Section for information regarding their appearance and interactions as a Special Coach at the Blueberry Academy League Club Room

Saguaro’s classes focus on the mechanics of sandwiches and other aspects of picnics. Despite his domestic skills and the fact that many of his Pokémon are on the cuter side, he has a reputation among his students as being cool, stylish, and aloof, which he feels the need to uphold. This prevents him from openly engaging in some of his interests, such as his taste for sweets. He even eats spicy food instead despite not favoring it. In forming bonds with him, he will ask the player to retrieve him some Sweet Herba Mystica. Upon its delivery, he enjoys it so openly that a student notices, but this doesn’t shatter their admiration of him. This shows him that he can enjoy his interests without worrying.

Saguaro has a cameo in Dendra’s friendship story, where he gives her cooking tips. He also participates in the Academy Ace Tournament.
