Victor is a new Pokémon Trainer and the male protagonist in Pokémon Sword and Shield. He is one of the two main protagonists alongside Gloria.


Victor is a young man with short brown hair and brown eyes. He is seen wearing a grey beanie along with a red t-shirt with rolled-up sleeves and blue jeans with a checkered green pattern. He wears brown running shoes on his feet and carries a brown suitcase on his back.

Apart from his basic features, Victor's appearance in the game can be altered from the very beginning: The player is given the option to change his starting hair color, eye color and complexion from a variety of presets. A few of these are permanent, but many of the other aspects can be customized further later on.

During official matches, Victor wears a standard Gym Challenger uniform. The number in the unfirom can be customized by the player.


Victor's personality is largely unknown as he is a silent protagonist. Like most residents of the Galar region, he seems to be a competitive person and big fan of the Pokémon League, he also doesn't show any ill will towards his enemies, as he had no trouble working with Team Yell during his visit to Wyndon despite their multiple attempts to boycott his Gym Challenge previously. Victor has a friendly rivalry with his childhood friend Hop. Victor has a habit of adjusting his hair before walking into Stadium fields.
