Tate: We don't need to talk because...
Liza: ...we can each tell...
Tate: ...what the other is thinking...
Liza: ...all in our minds!
Tate: This combination of ours...
Liza: Can you beat it?

–From Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Tate and Liza are the multi-battling Psychic-type twin Gym Leaders of Mossdeep City in the Hoenn region. Due to them both being the Gym Leaders of Mossdeep City, all battles against them are Double Battles. When they are defeated, they give out the Mind Badge.

Appearance

Due to being twins, Tate and Liza are almost identical appearance-wise. They both appear to be little kids with dark blue hair, fair skin, and gray eyes. Their clothes are also identical (save for two colored stars on their chests), and they both sport a pair of white ribbons in their hair. However, to tell the difference between the two of them, Liza has two pigtails, while Tate does not.

Clothing-wise, the twins wear an outfit that resembles a martial arts uniform.

Ruby and Sapphire

Tate and Liza wear pink-outlined blue outfits with Poké Ball logos on their chests and on their biceps. They also wear blue shoes with pink outlines.

Emerald

Their outfits in Emerald are the same as they are in Ruby and Sapphire.

Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Concept artwork of Tate and Liza for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Tate and Liza wear an outfit that consists of a puffy-sleeved white and blue shirt with two stars on it and black cuffs, matching blue pants with a planet-like symbol on the thighs, and blue flats. The only difference is the two stars on their chests- Tate has green stars, while Liza has magenta ones.

Personality

Unique, cooperative and a perfect duo, Tate and Liza are a synchronized pair of twins who tend to finish each other's sentences at times. This mental connection between siblings is their most defining trait. However, although they have a mental connection, Tate is more serious than his sister. For this reason, Tate seems to be the more rational and mature of the two (especially when it comes to Pokémon battles). When they are mentally in tune with each other, the twins cover each other's flaws and become a force to be reckoned with.

Etymology

The names Tate and Liza come from "levitate".

Their Japanese names, Fū and Ran, could come from 浮 (fū, floating) and 覽 (ran, perceive) respectively. Following the plant-based naming of most Gym Leaders, it could also come from 風蘭 (fūran, the Japanese name for the wind orchid).

Trivia

  • They are the first dual Gym Leaders. This is followed by Triple Gym Leaders in Unova.
    • However, one doesn't do a Triple battle against Cilan, Chili & Cress, so Tate and Liza are actually the only Gym Leaders that one fights in a Double Battle.
  • Tate and Liza are the youngest Gym Leaders.
