Avery is a rival appearing in the Shield - The Isle of Armor Expansion Pass. He only appears in Pokémon Shield, and his Pokémon Sword counterpart is Klara. He specializes in Psychic-types.


Avery is a young boy with blue eyes and long straight blonde hair. He is usually seen wearing round glasses.


Although outwardly gentlemanly and well-mannered, Avery has a prideful heart and regards his opponents as formidable. His catchphrase is "elegant" and he has a tendency of using metaphors that involve Psychic-type moves and Pokémon. Thanks to Mustard and Honey's guidance, he appears to have mellowed out and become a kinder person. However, there are times when he would deploy underhanded tactics, which led to Mustard sentencing him to look after the Dojo's Pokémon for six months.

League Card entries

First League Card
Avery comes from a long-standing family of psychics. Each Psychic-type Gym Leader of Galar has been from the same bloodline as Avery, and thus, Avery has been destined to bear the burden of Gym Leader since even before he was born. Ever since he was a child, Avery could freely move things with his mind but lacked other skills, such as teleportation or telepathy. This has caused the rest of his family to label him as a disappointment. Avery has a great deal of respect for Slowpoke, as they go about their business at their own pace, no matter what others say.
Second League Card
Avery has always been very proud and would levitate any opponent who dared defeat him. This behavior caused his status as a Gym Trainer to be revoked. During this time of despair and desperation, his Slowpoke found a flyer for the Master Dojo, leading to Avery's current circumstances. Avery caused friction with many of the other students initially, but the kindness of Honey and Mustard slowly helped him to mellow out and become more friendly. Recently he has been training hard with his now-evolved Slowbro to prove himself better than a certain new student at the dojo.

  • One of the generals of the Phobos Battalion is also named Avery.
  • Avery and Seiborī possibly come from the phrase "ivory tower," a metaphor referring to a secluded place that affords the means of treating practical issues with an impractical, often escapist attitude, and is often used to speak derisively about intellectuals.
  • Avery's uniform number, 026, can be read in Japanese as "otsumu," or "brain."
