Ash is still the friendly and energetic young man he has always been; always willing to take on new challenges and rarely ever takes the opportunity to ‘stop and smell the roses’. Although he has matured in some ways, Ash hasn’t changed much at all since he first began his journey. He still loves to battle and can be quite impatient when it comes to waiting. His mannerisms have matured only slightly; he still tends to act before thinking, and has a short fuse. However, it’s fairly easy to calm him back down unless you have done harm to someone he cares about. Ash is a very loyal person and would do anything to protect his friends and Pokémon. He is very kindhearted, and willing to lend a hand to anyone in need, whether it’s a stranger or even a previous enemy if they so wish to change their ways. Although it doesn’t seem like it a lot of the time, Ash’s density only goes so deep. He may appear dimwitted at times, but he is actually very smart. Despite his energetic personality, Ash has developed a more calm and quiet side over the years, which is really the only obvious sign of his emotional maturity.

• Minus her powers, of course.
Reina is a quiet and kindhearted girl. She grew up without the companionship of other children due to being shy and timid, and still hasn’t really grown out of it even now. However, thanks to all of her travels in the past six years, she has learned to open up more and become a more friendly person. She quite enjoys the company of other people, even if she herself is only standing off by herself in a group. She doesn’t have any real problems talking with people, although she sometimes has trouble with approaching them first. Over the years, in order to find a way past her shyness, she has developed a sharp edge to her personality; when she feels threatened or intimidated she will sometimes lash out without realizing, when in reality she only wants to make friends. Reina is not a mean or harsh girl at all, and despite her ‘sharp edge’ of a front, she is rarely ever seen angry or upset. She is a very calm, patient and passive girl who dislikes conflict, and tries to avoid it if possible. Reina tries to see the good in everyone - even if they are enemies, but this still will not keep her from fighting to defend herself or her friends and Pokémon if needed.
Pokémon [Snowpoint City, Sinnoh]
Reina grew up as an only child with her mother and father in Snowpoint City, Sinnoh. Her father studied Pokémon, and her mother was a breeder, so Reina grew up around many different kinds of Pokémon. Because of the snowy weather in Snowpoint, she grew up loving cold weather and ice-type Pokémon. Some people have even said that her snow-white hair is a result of her spending so much time in the snow. As a child, she was always shy and withdrawn, and almost never played with other children her age. Her only companion was an Eevee that her mother gave to her as a baby. At the age of ten when she was ready to start her journey, the Eevee was her very first Pokémon. Reina’s love for snow and ice drove her to decide to become an ice-type trainer.
Due to growing up in the city and knowing all of its residents, Reina knew Snowpoint’s gym leader, Candice, personally, and once she had become old enough to start her journey, she began training under the ice-type gym leader. She received her second Pokémon, a Snorunt, from Candice, and after three years of training, she finally set out on her journey. To date she has conquered the gyms of Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh, and was headed to the region of Unova when the switch suddenly occurred.
