Trevor's dream to be a scholar

Trevor is a young man studying to be a scholar. He is childhood friends with X, Y, Shauna, and Tierno and has known all of them ever since he was a small child. Trevor serves as the narrator of the X & Y chapter, with several events told from a past perspective.

Trevor is kind and courteous towards the majority of people he meets, contrary to X's standoffish nature towards strangers. Trevor believes X's years of seclusion heightened his senses and made him more prepared to fight evil and save his friends from danger.

Trevor debuts in the X & Y chapter. He is first seen as a small child watching X win a Junior Tournament with his friends. When Trevor and the others go to congratulate X for his victory, the group is surrounded by various reporters. The reporters push Trevor and his friends away as they try to interview X about his possible future careers. Several years later, X has become a shut-in and refuses to leave his due to several bad experiences from the media. X's friends made several attempts to get him to come out, only to end in failure every time. After some time, they all decided to give up with the exception of Y, who continues to try and get X to come out, despite him constantly frustrating her when he refuses.

After Y fails to get X out to come outside once again, Trevor gets a call on his Holo Caster from Professor Sycamore informing him that the package he requested has arrived. Trevor heads to his house and takes the package, which contains the starter Pokémon Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie and three Pokédexes. Trevor reveals that he asked to receive the Pokémon in hopes that presenting them to X will make him give up his shut-in ways and go on a journey with one of the three Pokémon. As he prepares to head back to X's house, Trevor is startled by the appearance of the Legendary Pokémon, Xerneas and Yveltal. Xerneas and Yveltal begin battling each other, which causes widespread destruction to Vaniville Town. While the townspeople attempt to evacuate, Y gets her friends to safety with her Rhyhorn riding skills. As they escape, an explosion causes Trevor to drop the case holding Fennekin's Poké Ball and Pokédex. Once the Legendary Pokemon stop fighting and disappear, Trevor and his friends regroup to discuss what to do. Trevor states that since his Holo Caster was damaged in the chaos, he wants to get in touch with Professor Sycamore and inform him of what happened to Fennekin and the third Pokédex. The group then sets off on their adventure a group of five for the first time in years.

After some traveling, the group arrives in Aquacorde Town, where Y has prepared a reservation at an inn for them to stay in for the night. X refuses to come out of his tent and chooses to sleep on Y's Rhyhorn outside. Unbeknownst to them, the inn was actually a trap set up by Team Flare. Trevor, Shauna, and Tierno find themselves locked inside their room while the Team Flare scientists, Aliana and Mable, attempt to steal Li'l Kanga while X isn't looking. Y manages to escape and informs X of the situation, which prompts X into battling. As Trevor watches from the window, he overhears Aliana and Mable talk about Mega Evolution. Once X and Y defeat the Team Flare scientists, they free Trevor, Tierno, and Shauna from their room and escape. They decide to spend the rest of the night camping in the woods. Trevor then becomes curious about Mega Evolution and decides to try and learn more about it.

In Santalune City, the group meets up with Viola, a reporter who they met in Vaniville Town before it was attacked. Although initially reluctant due to their distrust in adults, Viola eases their fears by revealing that she is the Santalune City Gym Leader and offers to help the group by offering sanctuary at her Gym. Viola states that she managed to take photographs of the event and suggests they study the photos to try and figure out what happened. While they are busy, Celosia of Team Flare uses a mind-controlled Shauna to try and steal Kanga's Kangaskhanite when no one is looking. Y and Viola find out about this, but Shauna attacks and knocks Viola out before falling unconscious herself from the strain of being controlled. Celosia takes the Mega Stone and attempts to escape, but X chases after her. He is assisted by Korrina, the Gym Leader of Shalour City. Korrina reveals herself to be a user of Mega Evolution as a well and battles Celosia with her Mega Lucario. Korrina manages to get the Kangaskhanite back, allowing X to Mega Evolve Li'l Kanga into Mega Kangaskhan. Together, Li'l Kanga and Lucario defeat Celosia's Aegislash, forcing Celosia to escape once she realizes that two Mega-Evolved Pokémon are too much for her to beat. Later, when the group celebrates their victory, Korrina is shocked to find that her grandfather Gurkinn gave X his Mega Ring without a proper Successor Ceremony like several others have. When X expresses a lack of interest in doing the ceremony, Korrina gets angry and leaves in a huff without telling them more about Mega Evolution.

Despite this, Trevor continues to wish to learn more about Mega Evolution. At Route 4, Trevor suggests X Mega Evolve Chespin, only find that Chespin cannot Mega Evolve and would be unable to since X refuses to let it join his team. They later come upon a Charmander sleeping on some flowerbeds. The Charmander accidentally lets its tail come in contact with the flowers, causing the flowerbeds to be set on fire. After Froakie puts the flames out with its Frubbles, everyone realizes that the Charmander must belong to Professor Sycamore due to its familiarity with Chespin and Froakie. They travel to Lumiose City, where they meet Professor Sycamore in person. The professor thanks the group for returning his runaway Charmander and has Trevor, Y, Shauna, and Tierno sent to Lysandre Café so that Trevor can get his Holo Caster fixed.

There, they meet Lysandre, the owner of the café and Professor Sycamore's friend, who proceeds to fix Trevor's Holo Caster. In the meantime, Trevor and the others continue investigating Viola's photos. Trevor becomes suspicious when he finds Lysandre's silhouette in one the photos. Lysandre's notices Trevor's strange behavior and asks to see the photo, but resorts to threatening with his Pokémon when Trevor refuses. Trevor and the others are saved when Diantha, the Kalos League Champion and actress, steps in to tell Lysandre to stop. Lysandre is unfazed by Diantha's presence, but agrees to back off and heads off to do business elsewhere. The stress of the situation causes Trevor to pass out. After being put into Y's Rhyhorn's tent, Trevor later awakens in front of the Prism Tower with his friends.

The group travels to Route 5, where Y continues her Sky Trainer training after deciding to take Froakie onto her team. When a wild Electrike steals Y's clothes, Trevor and the others pursue it. Once the Electrike had been defeated, they find out that it only wanted Y to get something out of a tree for it. Y refuses, but the Electrike adamantly stops her by jumping on her head and accidentally evolves into a Manectric, nearly breaking Y's neck in the process. The group is approached by Clemont, an inventor and Lumiose City Gym Leader. Clemont offers to use his Aipom Arm to get the item for Manectric, which turns out to be a Mega Stone, but also finds a Team Flare Grunt in the tree, who was also aiming to obtain the stone.

Although Clemont gets the Mega Stone, he is unable to stop the Grunt's Tyrunt from biting the tree and causing it to fall on the group. Trevor and the others escape from being harmed, but Clemont gets crushed by the tree, allowing the Grunt to take the stone and run off. To prevent the group from pursuing him, the Grunt sends out four Espurr that stop everyone other than X, Trevor, and the Manectric from following. The Grunt leads them to Parfum Palace, where he steals Kanga's Kangaskhanite after tricking them through the maze. X teams up with Manectric to battle the Grunt and decides to keep it and names it Élec. With Trevor's help, X and Élec retrieve both Mega Stones. X uses the Manectite to Mega Evolve Élec into a Mega Manectric and together, they defeat the Grunt and send him running off. The Grunt drops a clipboard containing the names of several Mega Stones and the corresponding Pokémon that can Mega Evolve with them. After the returning, Trevor and X meet Cassius, who helped Y, Shauna, and Tierno battle the Grunt's other Pokémon.

Cassius offers to take the group to Cyllage City, where Clemont said he saw Y's mother being taken away by Team Flare Grunts along with Grant. The group travels to Cyllage City via Cassius's van, and later in a helicopter Cassius obtained from the Battle Chateau. As they approach the city, a group of several Sky Trainers attack and begin damaging the helicopter. Y battles the leader of the Sky Trainers, Yvette, who is a classmate from her Sky Trainer school. X and the others realize that the Sky Trainers are being controlled by Team Flare. Although Y and X free the Sky Trainers from Team Flare's control, the helicopter blade snaps off and hits Y on her helmet, knocking her to the ground below. When X attempts to jump out and save Y, Trevor and Tierno stop him. The damage to the helicopter forces Cassius to make an emergency landing in Cyllage.

Trevor confronting Lysandre

X figures that Y landed on Route 9, and decides to go with his friends to find her. As Cassius argues with Grant over the damage to Cycling Road caused by the destruction of the helicopter, Trevor and his friends leave Cassius behind. They decide that as soon as they find Y, they should confront Team Flare at their base of operations. The group travels to where Y crash landed but are unable to find her. X notices a trail of Frubbles left behind by Croaky leading into a forest. They follow the trail into the forest, where they find Y and regroup with her. Y informs everyone that she overheard Celosia and Malva discuss a plan to use people from Vaniville Town they kidnapped as forced labor to take a giant tree that is actually the dormant form of Xerneas back to Team Flare's headquarters. She reveals that Team Flare is aiming to use Xerneas to power a machine known as the ultimate weapon. The group decides to wait for Team Flare to return so that they may launch a sneak attack and rescue the townspeople.

Later, Celosia returns with a group of Vaniville townspeople under the control of her Aegislash. When Y notices her mother in the crowd of captured townspeople, she leaps in to attack, but the damage her Sky Suit took when she fell earlier causes her to plummet to the ground. Alerted to her presence, Celosia attempts to attack Y, but is stopped by X. X attempts to Mega Evolve Li'l Kanga and Élec simultaneously, but it ends in failure. Essentia then arrives and uses her Trevenant to manipulate the forest's plants to capture X and his friends. Celosia attempts to kill X, but is stopped by the timely arrival of Korrina, Diantha, and Gurkinn. Korrina and Diantha battle Team Flare while Gurkinn stays behind to free Trevor and his friends from their bindings. Due to his injuries, Gurkinn is unable to battle, but gives X his disobedient Gengar. X names the Gengar Lasma and Mega Evolves it, allowing it to defeat Essentia and force her to flee. Trevor, X, and Tierno go to help Korrina while Y and Shauna stay behind to free Diantha from the Magic Room Malva trapped her in. When Trevor's group arrives at Korrina's location, they find that she managed to free the townspeople from Celosia's control, but was unable to stop Xerneas from being taken, was defeated, and had her Key Stone taken.

The unconscious townspeople and Korrina are taken to a hospital in Laverre City. While they recuperate, Trevor meets with Cassius, who was put in charge of moving the injured to the hospital. When Cassius asks where the others are, Trevor reveals that Y, Shauna, and Tierno are currently training with Gurkinn. As for X, the shock of what happened to Korrina leads X into shutting himself inside the base of a large tree. Trevor attempts to get X to come out again, but his attempts are refused. Later, Trevor goes to see X again, only to find that he has gone missing. He finds a pair of glasses that show an image of Geosenge Town in their lenses and shows them to Y and the others. They realize the glasses belong to Clemont, which means that Team Flare's base must be located there and X has gone there.

Trevor meets up with the Gym Leaders again, who plan to head to Geosenge Town via Wulfric's Avalugg. The group then sets off by sea while Y follows behind by air. When they arrive, the ultimate weapon is already in the process of being activated. Y and the Gym Leaders leap onto the weapon's petals to prevent them from opening. Trevor, Tierno, and Shauna are sent to the Team Flare Secret HQ to find the ultimate weapon's control room. They manage to escape the wrath of Bryony and head down an trash incineration chute, where they meet up with Clemont again. Trevor and the others head inside the headquarters, where they find a jail cell holding a giant man imprisoned. Emma introduces the man as AZ and assures everyone that he is friendly. AZ is freed from his cell and joins the group to help stop the ultimate weapon.

They arrive at the control room, but find that X was defeated by Lysandre and that the battle caused Xerneas to turn back to its normal form. Immediately after he sees Lysandre's face, Trevor goes into a rage and fear-filled frenzy and asks Clemont to throw him to the platform where Lysandre is currently standing. After landing, Trevor yells at Lysandre to remove the key, only for Lysandre to suggest that Trevor do it himself. In response, Trevor has his Flabébé blast Lysandre off of the platform and immediately begins attempting to remove the key. Tierno and Shauna go up to assist Trevor, but the weapon is fired despite their success in removing the key. Despite this, the combined efforts of Trevor, his friends, and the Gym Leaders weakened the ultimate weapon to the point where no innocent lives are taken.

The struggle causes Trevor, Tierno, and Shauna to pass out. AZ puts Trevor and the others on Xerneas's back and has it take them back to the surface while he stays behind to confront a furious Lysandre himself. Once they meet with Y again, X reveals that Xerneas wishes to be captured by a human, meaning that it is on their side. Y decides to take Xerneas for herself and names it Xerxer. Y has Xerxer begin to destroy the ultimate weapon, but is interrupted by the arrival of Malva, who reveals that she managed to capture Yveltal, which was sleeping in the ground underneath Xerxer's tree. Malva proceeds to attack the heroes, but is stopped by Xerosic, who states that Lysandre ordered a ceasefire since Xerneas and Yveltal's evenly matched power will only lead to an endless war. Xerxer confirms this and decides to retreat by flying away with everyone.

The group heads to the Lost Hotel, where they rest and eat a meal cooked by Siebold. Despite Y obtaining Xerxer, Ramos reveals that Team Flare blamed X's group and the Gym Leaders for the destruction caused by the ultimate weapon, meaning they have to hide from the public at the moment. After getting a shorter haircut from Shauna, Y is given a Mega Ring from Gurkinn, thus becoming a Mega Evolution successor. When Y takes X to help her search for Pokémon capable of Mega Evolution to add to her team, Trevor secretly follows them. Trevor watches as Y chastises X for ignoring her rules and going off to stop Team Flare alone, but decides not to stay angry at him. X eventually notices Trevor's presence and asks for the clipboard containing the list of Mega Evolving Pokémon so that he can decide what to capture.

After deciding what to capture, Trevor watches alongside his friends as Y successfully captures an Absol for her team. At Route 15, Trevor and the others assist X in searching for a wild Pinsir to add to his team. During their search, X and his friends come upon the motionless body of a wild Scyther that is guarded by a wild Pinsir. They are approached by Blue, a Pokédex holder from the Kanto region, who explains that the Scyther had its life energy drained by some force, but will eventually return to normal if its willpower is strong enough. After X manages to get the Pinsir to join his team, the group is called by Professor Sycamore, who requests that they travel to Anistar City so that he may aid them in their quest.

After going their separate ways from Blue, Trevor and his friends travel to Anistar City while Blue's Pokémon guard them along the way. Upon arriving, the group find Sycamore under attack by a group of Hawlucha. X and Y help save the professor and battle against the Hawlucha. Sycamore reveals that he discovered that the effect of the ultimate weapon allowed X and Y's Mega Rings to track Mega Stones, but only from 8 PM to 9 PM. Realizing that the Hawlucha belonged to a Trainer, X decides to stay behind and protect the professor while Y and the others go to find the Mega Stones for Solsol and Rute, only for Shauna and Tierno to offer to do it instead.

After Tierno and Shauna head off to find Mega Stones, Y discovers that the culprit behind the attack on Sycamore was Essentia and battles against her. During the battle, Essentia manages to knock Y out and takes control of Xerxer with her Expansion Suit's Poké Ball Jack function. Using the Expansion Suit's texturing function, Essentia attempts to meet with X while disguised as Y. X quickly sees through this ruse and has Rute damage Essentia's helmet with its horns, breaking the camouflage. Immediately afterward, Y arrives, having been found by Trevor, Tierno, and Shauna. Tierno and Shauna return X and Y their Mega Rings and give them the Mega Stones they managed to find. With the stones, X Mega Evolves Rute into Mega Pinsir while Y Mega Evolves Solsol into Mega Absol. To counter this, Essentia sends out Xerxer to use against them in battle.

As they battle, X and Y notice that Essentia doesn't have full control over Xerxer. They take advantage of this weakness to damage Essentia's suit and loosen her control over Xerxer even further. The battle is interrupted by the arrival of Zygarde, which begins attacking everyone. Essentia decides to shift her attention to Zygarde and attempts to capture it while it charges itself with the power of nature, leaving it completely defenseless while it does so. Although this causes her to lose control of Xerxer, Essentia manages to successfully capture Zygarde before making her escape. Shortly afterward, Professor Sycamore receives a call from Sina and Dexio, who inform him that they managed to capture a Team Flare Grunt at Lysandre Café. After interrogating the Grunt, Sina and Dexio reveal that Team Flare has gone into hiding at the Pokémon Village.

At Route 18, Trevor and his friends rest for the night to prepare for their trip to the Pokémon Village. The next day, Trevor and his friends receive assistance from the Elite Four to lead the way to where the village is located. Along with Diantha and Blue, Trevor and his friends head off to the Pokémon Village, but are put to sleep by Xerosic's Malamar on their way. By evolving into a Greninja, Croaky teams up with X to stop Xerosic, but they are unable to fully stop him. After Salamè evolves into a Charizard, X and Blue stay behind to face Xerosic while Trevor and the others go on ahead.

On their way to the village, Trevor, Y, Shauna, and Tierno are picked off by the remaining Team Flare scientists so they can battle them one-on-one. Trevor is forced to fight Bryony, but is unable to defeat her. After defeating Xerosic, X arrives and assists Trevor by defeating Bryony's Bisharp with a Mega-Evolved Salamè. Trevor and Y decide to stay behind to help Tierno and Shauna while X and Blue head to the village. As they head back, Trevor and Y are ambushed by Aliana and Bryony. Trevor exploits Aliana's Diggersby's Rototiller to power up his Flabébé's moves, allowing it to defeat Aliana's Diggersby and evolve into a Floette. Although this shocks Trevor, Y notes that the various battles over the course of their adventure have made him stronger. Y's encouraging words make Trevor more confident, which leads to him deciding to stay behind and fight while Y goes ahead to the village.

After Y leaves, Trevor faces Bryony in battle again, but is still unable to defeat her, forcing Trevor to take refuge in the forest. Just as Bryony has her Bisharp slash through the trees, a Mat Block appears to defend Trevor. The user of the attack reveals itself to be Croaky, which Y left behind to help. Together with Croaky, Trevor manages to defeat Bryony and her Bisharp. With his opponent defeated, Trevor goes on ahead to meet with his friends, but is cornered by Aliana. Aliana threatens to kill Trevor to prevent Croaky from rescuing him, but is surprised when Tierno and Shauna arrive after having defeated their opponents. Realizing that she is outnumbered, Aliana gives up. With all of the scientists defeated, Trevor, Tierno, and Shauna go to meet with the others, only to find Xerxer and Yveltal in the process of turning back into their dormant tree and cocoon forms. Xerxer reveals that by doing so, Zygarde will have no reason to remain, as it only appeared to suppress the fighting between it and Yveltal. This allows X to force Zygarde to separate and disappear, which leads to Lysandre's defeat.

With Team Flare defeated, Trevor and his friends say their farewells to their allies and return to Lumiose City, only to find the citizens going about their daily lives as if nothing had happened. Although Shauna is annoyed by this, X points out that if Vaniville wasn't destroyed, they would also act as if nothing happened. The group is soon approached by AZ, who asks how they plan to go about their lives from now on. AZ reveals to everyone that he was the one who created the ultimate weapon, and that he retrieved the weapon's key from the Team Flare Secret HQ. Due to how X and his friends were treated despite their hard work, AZ suggests that Team Flare's ambitions weren't wrong and goes to activate the ultimate weapon once again. Trevor and his friends attempt to stop AZ, but he retaliates with his Golurk. After a short battle, X manages to destroy the ultimate weapon's key. AZ reveals the entire thing was an act and that the group has made their choice to protect Kalos no matter the odds. Shortly after, AZ's Floette returns to him after being gone for 3000 years.

After saying their goodbyes to AZ, the group is greeted by Professor Sycamore, the Kalos Gym Leaders, Alexa, Bonnie, and Yvette, who congratulate Trevor and his friends for their victory. Professor Sycamore proposes to have a party and parade as a celebration for their heroics, but Trevor declines, as he and his friends have more important things to do. Afterward, Trevor and his friends return to Vaniville Town, where they witness Y reunite with her mother.

Three months later, Trevor has moved to Jaune Plaza in Lumiose City. He became Professor Sycamore's assistant, replacing Sina and Dexio while they were away in another region.

After returning to active duty as a member of Team Flare, Malva found Fennekin and the Pokédex inside a box with the other Pokémon. She decided to take Fennekin for herself, but the Pokédex fell under her foot and was crushed. Sometime later, Fennekin evolved into a Braixen and Delphox. After Team Flare was defeated, Clemont gave Trevor a Poké Ball containing the unconscious Delphox inside. Clemont revealed that after Team Flare's defeat, Shauna's Furfrou protected the unconscious Delphox, which clued Clemont into realizing that Delphox must have been related to X's group somehow. Trevor then decided to have Delphox join his group of friends.
