Raihan is a Gym Leader in the Galar region. He is acknowledged as the strongest amid the Galar Gym Leaders and also Leon's rival.

Appearance

Raihan is a young man with a tall and slim build. He has black hair in a Mohawk, light brown skin, and cyan-colored eyes. Raihan wears a black hoodie with dark blue, orange, and tan-colored accents, the Dragon-type uniform, and dark blue/orange shoes, as well as an orange hairband. His outfit resembles his gym's type, Dragon. The hoodie has a collar that resembles the teeth of an open mouth. The sleeves end as his elbows with orange cuffs stopping at his forearms. He sports a Dynamax Band around his right wrist.

Personality

Raihan has a flair for taking selfies of himself with his Rotom Phone. He is kindhearted to his peers, as well as having a strong rivalry with Leon; however, Raihan still respects Leon as a worthy adversary.

Unlike his fellow gym leaders, who each specialize in a single Pokémon type, Raihan focuses his battle strategies on weather conditions, such as Sandstorm and Harsh Sunlight.

League Card entries

Regular League Card
Raihan is commonly regarded as the most skilled Gym Leader in the Galar region. He has striven for victory in every environment, and as a result, he has adopted a battle style where he utilizes weather effects to their fullest. It is rumored that he could easily become another region's Champion should he choose to move, but it seems that to Raihan, defeating Leon is much more important. His uploaded selfies are quite popular. Occasionally he'll post a photo that only shows a sandstorm.
Rare League Card
Raihan started taking selfies so as to never forget the pain of his defeats, but more recently he has been taking photos showing off his training routine, his fashion choices, and the like, causing some fans to leave harsh comments whenever he loses to Leon. It's true that Raihan is on a ten-nil losing streak against Leon, but no other Pokémon Trainer has managed to KO as many of Leon's Pokémon as Raihan has. Raihan no doubt looks forward to taking a selfie after finally defeating Leon.
