His name comes from the largest moon of the dwarf planet Pluto. His name might also come from the figure in Greek mythology, the ferryman of Hades.

In Japanese, Charon is named Pluto, after the dwarf planet and former ninth planet (which in turn was named after the Roman god of death and the underworld).


  • In Platinum, Charon likely used to live at the Old Chateau but probably left likely due to the fame for discovering Rotom.
  • In HeartGold and SoulSilver, when the player arrives at Silph Co., they find a journal mentioning him in a broken elevator. This implies that Charon was a former employee of Silph. Co before joining Team Galactic.
  • Charon can be seen as a parallel to Pulseman's Doc Waruyama: Waruyama was originally a benevolent man and the creator of Pulseman, a being who could enter electrical devices, then changed his name to Waruyama, started the Galaxy Gang (Ginga-dan in Japanese), and planned on taking over the galaxy. Charon was originally a benevolent man who discovered Rotom (whose design and abilities are based on Pulseman), then joined Team Galactic (Ginga-dan in Japanese) to help Cyrus in his plan to recreate the universe in his image and rule over it. In addition, both are scientists whose hairstyles point up in the back and leave bald spaces in the center.
