Arven is a character appearing in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet. He is an upperclassman at the Naranja Academy or Uva Academy and a researcher of healthy recipes, He is also Professor Sada's and Turo's son.

Appearance[]

Arven is a young man with blonde hair and green eyes. He wears a white and purple or orange shirt and necktie with a blue or yellow vest with the school's emblem on the front, purple or orange pants and brown boots. He carries a yellow backpack in his back.

Personality[]

Arven can be seen as snappy and irritated when first met. However, as the player helps him gather the Herba Mystica, he starts to become more friendly and nicknames them "Buddy". While still snappy, he is considerably less so than the beginning of the game. He views Nemona negatively, calling her a "battle freak" and would rather go to someone else for help rather than her if possible.

Arven is also displayed to cherish those he loves and cares about, majorly evident when he went through great lengths by searching for the Herba Mystica just to cure his injured Mabosstiff. While he also cares for his parents, he was not on good terms with them as they spent their time researching more than playing with him. However, upon learning that his true parent had died, he was saddened and felt some kind of kinship with the robotic replacement.

Biography[]

The son of Professors Sada and Turo, Arven was frequently left at home by himself as his parents were busy with their research. According to a journal in the research labs, one of the parents walked out on Arven not long after his birth. One day, the remaining parent brought a strange Pokémon to stay at the home, but when other people saw it, they were forced to take it back to Area Zero. Arven bonded with his Mabosstiff, as it was always with him every day. One day, he and Mabosstiff went to Area Zero, only to be attacked by a strange Pokémon that left Mabosstiff severely injured.

Despite surviving, Mabosstiff was mostly unresponsive and a former shell of itself. Arven tried to heal it by using conventional medicine and going to Poké Centers, but all attempts to heal it failed. Arven later learned of the Herba Mystica from his parents' book and believed it could help Mabosstiff, but was not a proficient Pokémon battler and was unable to acquire them as they were guarded by Titan Pokémon, powerful Pokémon that had grown to huge sizes from eating the herbs.

Arven is first seen after the player and Nemona were investigating cries of an unknown Pokémon, later revealed to be Koraidon/Miraidon. After seeing that it warmed up to the player, Arven let them keep it for their own use.

When the player arrived at the academy, Arven asked them for their assistance in defeating the Titan Pokémon to acquire the herbs, during which he joined with a Pokémon he had caught on the way. Once the second Titan was defeated, Arven revealed why he was hunting the herbs. Each sandwich Arven made improved both Koraidon/Miraidon's capabilities and Mabosstiff's health, with the last one restoring his partner back to normal.

Arven was later contacted by his parent and was told to meet up in the Great Crater of Paldea. After a brief battle to see if they were capable of going alone, Arven concluded that they would need a Champion-rank Trainer and a proficient hacker to handle the dangers within, during which the player brought with both Nemona and Penny's help. Together with his squad, Arven began to divulge his past on the way, and soon with the player character's battle against the AI Sada/Turo, he finally realized that his true parent has been long gone. After the player character and their Koraidon/Miraidon defeat the other Koraidon/Miraidon, Arven emotionally watched AI Sada/Turo siphoned themselves into the time machine and couldn't do anything even after he begged them not to leave. However, he then came to terms about his late mother/father.

Arven later participated in the first event of the Academy Ace Tournament. After the tournament, he decided to find out more about his parent professor in different parts of the academy, so as to also help him find his true self. Eventually Arven decided to become a cook after he graduates from the academy, aiming to help people that are in the same need as he was before.

Trivia[]

  • If the player completes the main story, they will unlock a dialogue of Arven when they meet him at the entrance hall; he's holding the Scarlet book/Violet book and questions, "wait... How did the explorers in this book see these Pokémon if my dad/mom made the time machine..." But then he leaves after dismissing his hypothesis.
  • Other than Mabosstiff, Arven's team consists entirely of Pokémon related to food.
  • During his Pokémon battles, Arven holds his Poké Balls upside down, showcasing his poor proficiency in them.
