"The Pokémon you sent into battle... At times they danced like a spring breeze, and at times they struck like lightning. It was with light, yet surefooted, elegance that you led your Pokémon. Even I felt bedazzled by your masterful performance! You now stand at the glorious peak of the Pokémon League. I now proclaim you to be the new Hoenn region..."
— Wallace in Pokémon Emerald.


Wallace is a tall, thin young man with light blue eyes and teal blue hair that curls gracefully around his head. In Ruby and Sapphire, as a Gym Leader, he wears a white sailor's cap, and a long teal and white dress shirt with a pointed collar that resembles the uniform of a sailor (on account of his Water-type expertise). He wears purple pants and white shoes. 

In Emerald, when Wallace becomes the Champion, he sports a long cape with rippled edges that is white on the outside and teal on the inside. 


Wallace is calm, cool-tempered, very elegant and graceful, and somewhat flamboyant. He is very kind and respectful of the player when challenged. He has a great passion for the sea and Water-type Pokémon. Upon defeat as a Champion, he will express his amazement in your battling skills, joyously complimenting the player in a poetic manner and proclaiming them the new Champion of the Hoenn region.

He agreed to be Ruby's mentor when he saw that Ruby was actually good at Pokémon battles, even though Ruby was hiding it.

Afterwords, when all Gym Leaders had a meeting, they talked about which Team was good, Team Magma or Team Aqua. Though in the end, both Teams were causing mayhem in the entire region.
