Rockapheller (also known as Brandt) is a Pokémon Trainer who travels across all the regions in the Pokémon world through Pokémon anime, Pokémon games and Pokémon manga in order to train Pokémon and compete at the Pokémon League, or engage with the legends and myths, as well as trainers of every region in order to understand the nature of Pokémon, people, world and the franchise as a whole.

Pokémon teams


For all the teams with used by Brandt and further information, see Brandt

In March 2018, I have started to record all my Pokémon teams on each of my playthrough. Brandt is the original persona that I have been using for my initial playthroughs ever since. He typically catches Pokémon that are introduced in the generation of its game. For example, he would use only Generation V Pokémon in any Generation V game. The exception is when the Pokémon has an evolution or a new form that are introduced in that generation. The most remarkable example being Mega Evolutions being introduced in Generation VI.

Brandy is the female counterpart to Brandt. She typically follows the same rules as Brandt while making up her teams. Additionally, she tends to ignore the Pokémon that Brandt has trained already, and instead chooses different species.

City names

For all the teams with the city name theme and further information, see City names

The player characters are named after cities, and their regular members on the party are nicknamed after a specific theme. For instance, the player character in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is named Athens due to the theme of the game. The regular members on Athens's teams are nicknamed after Greek gods and goddesses. Unlike the previous playthrough patterns, during the city name runs, the Pokémon teams are not restricted to the corresponding generation of the game. The only rule is to prevent using the same Pokémon that have been used before.

Laidback missions

Laidback missions refer to minor missions that I repeat on a daily basis until I reach my goal. These missions often contain finding a rare form of a Pokémon which would take a lot of time when done at once. The ultimate goal is to complete my Living Pokédex which I had completed once before the release of Generation VIII games Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Living Pokédex

I have completed a Living Pokédex after the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon by using Pokémon X, Omega Ruby, and Sun. After the release of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, I have been trying to keep up with it, although some of the newly released Pokémon have yet to be added. At the moment, all the Pokémon are stored in Pokémon HOME. Initially, none of the Pokémon were meant to have all their various forms, but after the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, I have decided to find the missing forms as much as possible. The search still continues to this day.

  • I never leave my starter Pokémon.
  • I catch the "national bird" Pokémon and keep them on my team until the end unless I already had trained one in another version before.
  • There are no types that I never trained.*
    • My most trained type is Normal, with 24.
    • My least trained type is Steel, with 6.
  • I only play with the Pokémon that debut in the generation of its game, unless the generation introduces a new evolution or form to the species.
  • Until Generation VI games, I would have my Pokémon either with a beneficial or ineffective nature. This rule is broken from Pokémon X and onwards due to arguably easiness of the games.
  • I keep the level of my Pokémon on my team as close as possible.
  • Alpha Sapphire has the only team which defeated the league first time with less than 6 Pokémon in the party.
  • I don't necessarily choose the gender of a specific Pokémon.
  • Charizard and Blastoise are the only Pokémon that I trained for more than one party.
  • Golduck in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is the only shiny Pokémon to be a regular member of the party.
