In the core series games
Tierno appears in Pokémon X and Y as a friend of the player, to whom he gives the starter Pokémon sent through him by Professor Sycamore. He is a dancer and his goal is to create a dance team with Pokémon and wants to find Pokémon with amazing moves. As such, the Pokémon in his party know "dance moves", such as Swords Dance and Petal Dance.
Tierno is first met in Aquacorde Town, where he delivers the player and two of his or her friends a starter Pokémon on behalf of Professor Sycamore. He is then met at the Pokémon Center in Santalune City, where he gives the player a minor tutorial on what is in the Pokémon Center.
After the completion of the story line, Tierno can be found in Coumarine City, asking to see a Pokémon knowing a randomly selected dance move each day, giving the player a Heart Scale if his request is fulfilled.
Tierno also appears as one of the player's partners in the Battle Maison when choosing Multi Battle.
