"You can knock us down, but we'll never stay down!
Because the two of us, we always support each other!
"
— Tate and Liza in Emerald.

Tate and Liza are the tag-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, Sapphire and Emerald

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.

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, Liza 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.

Tate and Liza made their debut in It's Still Rocket Roll to Me!. They were still twins, though Liza bragged that she was the older of the two and always beat Tate in battle, which irritated Tate. The twins relate to both May and Max in their own way, with May and Liza being the older siblings and Tate and Max being younger siblings. Tate had to guide a shuttle down when Team Rocket attempted to steal it.

When they battled Ash, they had their mom act as the referee. Though they got off to a rocky start at first, they eventually got in synch in their rematch. However, they were defeated thanks to an improvised move called "Thunder Armor."

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.
  • Tate and Liza's names come from "levitate." Fū and Ran, their Japanese names, come from 浮 (fū, floating) and 覽 (ran, perceive).
