Leon is a character appearing in Pokémon Sword and Shield, who is the Champion of the Galar region and the older brother of Hop.

Appearance

Leon has long, purple hair and amber eyes. He wears a baseball cap tilted upwards to show off the crown design on the brim, a red fur-lined cape that has logos of sponsors on the back, and a black striped shirt that has a sword and shield on it.

Personality

Leon is a very confident person, even to the point where he can sometimes come off as self-centered. During his champion battle against the player, he is still very focused on himself and his winning streak, not even considering the possibility that he may lose. He also only has pictures of himself in his house, and, strangely enough, none of his brother Hop. However, he is still a kind and compassionate human being, as shown when he shields Hop and the protagonist with his Charizard from a blast from Eternatus.

League Card entries

First League Card
Leon is known far and wide for taking part in the Gym Challenge at the tender age of 10 years old-and even more so for claiming victory in the Champion Cup on his first attempt. Ever since that victory, he and his partner Charizard have remained unbeaten in both League and exhibition matches. He is called "the unbeatable Champion" and is a hero to many Trainers. He has but one weakness: a dismal sense of direction. But don't worry-wherever he ends up, he makes sure everyone has a champion time!
Second League Card
Leon's dream, even when he was still the Champion, was to make Galarian Trainers the strongest Trainers in the world. In order to fulfill that dream, he has rebuilt Rose Tower into the Battle Tower, a facility dedicated to Pokémon battles. People say that he seems even more lively now than he was as Champion. Leon has also commented that another reason he likes the tower so much is because it's impossible to get lost inside. Leon's biggest problem now is apparently coming up with a new signature catchphrase to replace "Let's have a champion time!"

Trivia

  • Leon's name can is derived from the plant dandelion, hence its Japanese name, "Dande". It may also come from "lion", which is a symbol of English royalty that ties into Leon's regal attire and status as the Champion.
  • Leon's outfit more closely resembles that of a baseball player rather than a soccer player like most other trainers. This is more noticeable when he takes off his cape.
    • Leon also throws his Poké Ball in a similar fashion to a baseball pitcher.
  • Leon has a poor sense of direction and tends to get lost easily.
  • Leon is the first Pokémon Champion to give out Starter Pokémon to new trainers.
  • Leon and Mustard are the only non-playable trainers whose uniform numbers are both not a pun in Japanese and only consists of a single digit.
    • In Leon's case, his uniform number, "1", refers to his status as Champion.
