Mustard is a character that appears in Pokémon Sword and Shield - The Isle of Armor Expansion Pass. He is a former Champion of the Galar region and the mentor of Leon.

Appearance

Normally, Mustard wears a green shirt with a blue paw print and yellow undershirt as well as white pants. Like Leon, he wears sneakers and also wears a bowler hat with green highlights.

When he gets serious, he takes off his jacket and hat, and his eyebrows which normally flap downwards now point upwards. His hair is wrapped in a ponytail with a red headband and he will strike a kung fu pose.

Personality

When he was young, Mustard used to have a hot pursue on accomplishing for the best, and therefore had an overly strict standard on himself and others. But after his retirement, he has already loosened himself up, though he still gets ecstatic whenever he gets the chance to battle a worthy opponent. He prefers playing fair and square and dislikes people who rig and cheat.

Although mostly a hot-blooded battler on the battlefield, he also has quite an addiction to playing games, as seen that he is always playing Pokémon Quest with Joy-Cons in his room.

Biography

Prior to Dynamax being introduced into Gym Battles, Mustard had reigned the title of champion for 18 years, and nobody, even his student Leon, can beat his record. He is also the first to discover Leon's talent. 50 years ago, he was once a Fighting-type Gym Leader who earned and reigned the title of Champion and had triumphed against his rival who was then the Fairy-type Gym Leader. However, after the death of his partner Pokémon, he lost his shine and his winning streak. He didn't retire until the then Chairman gave him a request of faking a match to win, which made him quit entirely. He later purchased and named the Isle of Armor, where he opened his dojo with his wife, Honey.

The Isle of Armor

He will accept the player into his dojo. After battling the player with his Shinx and Mienfoo, he puts them, Klara/Avery and all his other students through 3 trials.

After the player clears all 3 trials, he will give the player a Kubfu and permission to have a buddy on the Isle of Armor. The player must raise Kubfu's Friendship, then fight their way through one of Tower of Two Fists to evolve Kubfu into Urshifu (with him and his Kubfu with a Focus Sash being the final opponent).

Once the player completes the quest with Hop to find the ingredient required for Urshifu to unlock its Gigantamax potential, he will challenge the player in one more battle where he goes all out. He can be challenged to a rematch and uses this team each day.

The Crown Tundra

Mustard appears as one of Galarian Star Tournament's participants. Like others, he can be chosen as the partner or battled as an opponent.

Regular League Card

Mustard is the former Fighting-type Gym Leader and is regarded as one of the strongest Champions in Galar's history—reigning undefeated for 18 years. His intense drive for strength meant he insisted on discipline, both in himself and in others. His character changed drastically, however, after his post-retirement globe-trotting. His sudden purchase of a deserted island added to the surprise of those around him. When asked for his reasoning, he answered with a smile, "There are lots of ways to be strong in this world. I want to see them all!" The name "Isle of Armor" was also his idea.

Rare League Card

This photo was taken about 50 years ago, when Mustard defeated the Fairy-type Gym Leader and went on to become Champion. He reigned undefeated until he lost his partner Pokémon. After this, his losses started to mount. He remained popular even after losing the mantle of Champion, but decided to retire after the league chairman at that time asked him to win in a rigged match. Mustard developed an obsession with video games after his retirement. Apparently he held off while he was still active in order to maintain his image to his fans.

Trivia

  • His name derives from the plant and condiment mustard. The word "mustard" also hints towards "master", hence his class as Dojo Master. Together with Honey, they form the word "honey mustard".
  • Mustard and Leon are the only characters whose uniform numbers are not a wordplay in Japanese and only consist of a single digit.
    • Mustard's uniform number is "0", as seen in his rare League Card. This may be a reference to him being the Champion before Leon, whose uniform number is "1".
  • He is the only Champion, be it former or current, to use a Legendary Pokémon.
    • He is the second character after Hop to do this in Galar, as Hop uses Zamazenta in Sword and Zacian in Shield.
  • The fact that he goes all out is similar to Goku from Dragon Ball, as they change form when holding nothing back.
    • The fact that his eyebrows change is similar to Dante Kouryu from Beyblade Burst Rise, whose blue hair highlight emits blue flame like effects when he gets serious, as well as every Burst protagonist since Aiger Akabane, whose tied up hair breaks the band and changes from brown to crimson when he goes all out.
  • He usually refers himself as "little old me".
  • When the player stands in front of the TV while he's playing with his Joy-Cons, he will tell them off and complain about them blocking his sight.
  • The game he plays on TV is a real game called Pokemon Quest.
