Yo Trainer! You had me counting the days on my fingers waiting for you to come. I heard from Volkner what you did in Sunyshore. You managed to light a fire in that guy's heart again. How could you not expect me to look forward to seeing you in battle? You're facing a Fire-type Pokémon user with me. Let Flint see how hot your spirit burns!

–Flint in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.

Flint is the third member of the Sinnoh Elite Four. He specializes in Fire-type Pokémon. He is a childhood friend of Volkner.


Flint has a red afro and gray eyes. He has a black choker around his neck and wears a yellow t-shirt with a high collar and gray baggy trousers. He also wears sandals.


Flint is a concerned yet good-spirited Trainer. He cares a lot about his friends, especially the once-depressed Volkner. He may be a little simple-minded, but Flint means well despite his tendency to be very casual in his attitude.


The name Flint name comes from "flint", a type of stone used to create sparks and thus start fire.

His Japanese name, Ōba, likely comes from オーバーヒート (ōbāhīto, overheat).

  • While Flint's original team has fewer actual Fire types than non-Fire types, the non-Fire types also know Fire-type moves and fit thematically: Drifblim is a hot air balloon, Steelix would likely be formed by intense heat and pressure, and Lopunny is on his team either because it has warm, fluffy fur or because it resembles a human woman somewhat and is thus meant to be figuratively hot (i.e. attractive).
