"We Psychics don't give up even when we're down to the last Pokémon. That's what makes us so formidable!"
— Will, Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

Will is the first of the Elite Four in Johto and he is a Psychic-type trainer.


Will's overall appearance is quite peculiar in terms of normal clothing. He has lilac hair that falls over his left eye, while a bang frames his right eye. He wears a tight domino mask that covers his eyes and the space between them. He wears a black sleeveless tailcoat-like vest, with a pink tuxedo top underneath it, while the vest sports two rows of double brass buttons, with a gold line between them. He wears pink pants, with black derby shoes, while a frilled white cravat is present on his neck.


Suave and charming, Will is quite the gentleman and judging from his appearance it's no surprise. His attitude in a way subverts the cold, calculating natures that are typical of Psychic Pokémon. In fact Will is fairly sociable and regal, always battling with a flamboyant sense of style.



Gold, Silver & Crystal

Will is the weakest Elite Four member featured in the series as a whole, in terms of level and proportionally, as normally the difference between the level of the last Gym Leader's main Pokémon and the first Pokémon of the Johto Elite Four is usually 5-10 levels, but in fact, his Pokémon are almost the same level as that of Clair. Still all his Pokémon have the Psychic move at a level they would normally not, and given that his Pokémon have a high Special Attack, he can be a serious threat if underestimated. However his Pokémon are of weak defenses.

  • In HeartGold and SoulSilver, all of Will's Pokémon are female.
  • Will is the first trainer whose "last-Pokémon" phrase is made of 2 pages.
  • Will's name comes from willpower (mental strength and determination) and possibly, maybe also due to his theatrical battle style and effeminacy, playwright William Shakespeare (in Shakespeare's era, the roles of women were also played by men). Itsuki, his Japanese name, may come from 月 (tsuki, moon, as the moon is often a symbol of mysticism (he also resembles the Sailor Moon series' Tuxedo Mask somewhat)), 一 (itsu, one, as he's the first Johto Elite Four member), or 偽り (itsuwari, lie, as telling convincing lies requires a lot of intelligence).
