His Pokémon at Battle Tower

Does anybody note the Pokemon he uses at BT? Similar like in this article: Buck ?? Piotr mil 12:14, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

I'd like to add that he has an Entei. It knows Fire Fang, Bite, Iron Head, and Stone Edge, and it has a King's rock. Alternatively, it knows Shadow Ball, Extrasensory, Calm Mind, and Overheat, and has a shuca berry. Delspencerdeltorro 03:32, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Seven Trainers

Who are the other 2 trainers that are found in DP? ht14 00:15, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Lucas/Dawn and Pearl. --ケンジガール 00:21, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
So you can battle with those two in Battle Tower??? ht14 12:54, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Aaron and Riley

That's such a big resemblance, Riley doesn't seem to be based on Aaron. He just is based on him! The pose, the hair... everything. --Kyoufu Kawa 17:30, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

That's pretty possible, Kyoufu-sensei but we aren't sure who was designed first. D/P was already in project when Movie 8 first saw the day light. It's still possible that they used Riley's design to make Aaron. Yeah, that's unlikely but we never know... Anyways, you're still my master. --Maxim 17:59, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
Considering that Sugimori made Aaron's character design as well as Riley's, IIRC, it may be intended to be more than just a reference. Personally, I've been wondering if Riley is a descendant of Aaron. --Pie ~ 20:06, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
This descendence thing is a pure fanwank, so far. If the anime doesn't explain this, it will stay fanwank forever. But I doubt it since Riley and Aaron don't co-exist (yet, maybe). --Maxim 20:15, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
Well, chances are pretty good of Riley appearing in the anime, given the record of DP character appearances so far, but not very good of a mention to Aaron, given the record of referencing movies. But considering that they come from two completly different points in time, look the same, were both designed by Sugimori - I sincerely doubt the similarities are merely a nod from one canon to another. --Pie ~ 20:21, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
Seeing how Cheryl has popped up in the anime, I'm anticipating an appearance before Ash battles Byron. Plus, if he is a descendant of Aaron in the anime, then that means he might be related to Ash. Right? --Angerman 06:45, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
I agree that out of all "Partner Trainers" Riley has the best chance of appearing in anime. I personally hope they explain it somehow because it really makes sense. Besides Riley the biggest chance of anime appearance has: Buck (unless Ash and co. don't visit Battle Zone, but I expect a Battle Zone arc in anime), then Marley (this time, chance is pretty low since Victory Road is always omitted in anime, but they can fit her in some filler as well) and then Mira (her cave was already omitted but there is still a hope that she'll appear on the way to Hearthome City).
Mira is appearing in the anime soon. Palmer will probably be Kenny's dad since he's Pearl's dad in the game. I'm not so sure about Marley, though. RahinTalk 03:36, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
There's no proof Kenny/Kengo will reappear yet, nor that he "is" Pearl/Jun's counterpart in the Anime; so Palmer/Kurotsugu isn't necesesarily Kengo's dad. He could just be another character in the "possible" Battle Zone arc (though, I'm pretty sure Battle Zone will appear in the Anime, as Battle Frontier did, but it would have to be expanded to fit it's own story arc, which may or may not be aided in Opal Version (or whatever the third version will be called)). In any case, Mira/Miru's appearance outside of her cave points ever more to evidence that Marley/Mai will appear in the anime as well. Oh, and just because Satoshi has the same hadou as Aaron-sama doesn't make him a descendant of Aaron; though if Riley/Gen appears in the anime, it's quite likely that Satoshi will think Gen is Aaron for a moment (though even more likely is Satoshi won't remember anything from Movie 8 save that he's met a Lucario before, as he did in the Whirl Islands with Lugia and at Tin Tower with Suicune). I do believe that Aaron is related to both Satoshi and Gen though, but that's all fanon, and should not be mentioned in this article whatsoever, unless some note is made during the episode(s) with Gen later on. I think the appearance of all these characters are also pointing that a Battle Zone season will occur - they're introducing Satoshi to his partners at the Tower. If Battle Zone occurs, it almost assures us of Gen's anime appearance. ~Kumori Satosuke 20:27:45, 26 October 2007 (EST)
Palmer Kenny's dad? It's the most stupid idea I've ever heard. What's the hell with that Kenny? Why is everybody wanking over him? He's just friggin' one-time rival. And he doesn't even look like D/P Rival. If someone thinks that Kenny is D/P rival's anime counterpart, that means he/she DIDN'T PLAY D/P AT ALL. Stop fanwanking, KYAPISU?! --Maxim 07:08, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
They do have a reason to believe it. Kenny does have a similar personality and is friends with Dawn. Just like Pearl is to the player. And I doubt that's the last time we've seen Kenny. Sure he's not as important as Zoey, but he's most likely going to come back. --ケンジガール 07:15, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
I also think he may return. In an one-second cameo in the Grand Festival. --Maxim 07:21, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Hey, I also noticed something in Platinum while you fight him in the Top Trainer Cafe. His animation shows what appears to be him using aura(Exerting it from his hand). This seems to be another reference to Sir Aaron, furthering the fact that they may be based off of eachother. Joe T.E. 15:16, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

His Pokémon

Riley uses all of these guys, and no one else who you can team up with uses all of them. Is that worth mentioning in the Trivia section?--Blastoise Totally Rules!!! 16:20, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Anime appearance

I know this may be obvious, but can someone add that Riley (Gen in Japan) will be appearing in DP108 in the near future, as revealed by his upcoming voice actor? I mean, we didn't get that far in the episodes aired so far, but... ShinyRayquaza 14:45, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Until it airs. Sorry. --Maxim 14:49, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Not till it airs. Till The episode gets an official confirmation. Jmath 14:55, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
And til' it gets airdate, I think.--DUSKevz 01:01, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

it must be aired to make more imformation--Bakunawa 03:15, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

It has already aired by now and he appeared in DP110. The news about him appearing in DP108? I'm pretty sure it was a mistake with episode listings and that kind of stuff.--DRAGONBEASTX 14:25, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Riley's Italian name(s)

In Italian, Riley's name in the games is Marisio, and in the anime his name is Fabiolo. I'd like to write it in the "Names" section, but I don't know how to do it. --NightShadow 13:31, 10 April 2010 (UTC) Fatto! --Siegfried 13:43, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Thank you :) --NightShadow 13:52, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Trivia: his hat?

Since when does Rileys hat look like Salamences head? Alexjuuhh 14:19, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Since never. Thanks for spotting an useless trivia bit. If you see bad trivia bits like this, don't hesitate to delete them. --Maxim 15:19, 29 May 2010 (UTC)


Hello. I was playing Multi-Battle in Heart-Gold and I battled with Riley. I noticed he had Salamence as his first pokemon, and I saw it using Draco Meteor, usually at the beginning, Flamethrower, and Hydro Pump. Should this be added under the HG/SS Section? Sorry I don't have proof. But trust me, I saw it! TheTheDragon14 06:52, 16 January 2011 (UTC)TheTheDragon14

Battleground team

I noticed that every one of his Pokémon in the Battleground has at least one type immunity; he is the only stat Trainer whose Battleground team has such a trait. Does this qualify as trivia? Kikugi (talk) 22:51, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

TheAuraGuardian and Riley

So, not too sure, but TheAuraGuardian's character is based on Sir Aaron or Riley. I don't think this belongs on Bulbapedia but just to be sure. - unsigned comment from SeeYaLater (talkcontribs)

Who or what are you referring to? There is no user here by that name and neither is there an article with that name either. Frozen Fennec 16:40, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
You are correct: that doesn't belong on bulbapedia. Community members don't get that sort of recognition in trivia. Kai * the Arc Toraph 01:14, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
