From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Flint (Japanese: オーバ Ōba) is a master Template:Type2 trainer and member of the Sinnoh Elite Four.
In the anime
He hasn't appeared in the anime so far, but he was mentioned in An Elite Meet and Greet by Lucian and in DP099 by Officer Jenny.
In the games
In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, Flint is the third member of the Sinnoh Elite Four. He is friends with Volkner, the Gym Leader of Sunyshore City.
Flint first encounters the player in Sunyshore City, informing him about the recent blackouts and Volkner's disillusionment as a Gym Leader. He asks the player to bring back the excitement of Pokémon battles to Volkner before seemingly returning to the Pokémon League.
In Pokémon Platinum, Flint and Volkner challenge the player and his rival to a double battle upon their arrival to the new Battle Frontier.

Tag Battle with Volkner
"Yo trainer! You had me counting the days on my fingers waiting for you to come. I heard from Volkner what you did in Sunyshore. You managed to light a fire in that guy's heart again. How could you not expect me to look forward to seeing you in battle?
"I can feel your determination. Your will is overpowering me!
"This situation... This is heating up! I'm blazing now!
"...! I wasn't expecting this! I wasn't looking down on you... But I didn't think for one second that I'd lose! This is fantastic! You and your Pokémon are inspiring!"
"...Whew... Burnt right down to cinders..."
In the manga
- Flint has a slight resemblance to the McDonald's mascot, Ronald McDonald due to the red afro, yellow shirt and slightly pale face.
- Although he specializes in Template:Type2s in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, only two of the five Pokémon he uses are actually Fire-type, with only eight Fire-type moves between them and only four of these are actual attacking moves. In Pokémon Platinum, his entire team consists of his specialty type.
- Flint's Magmortar is the only Pokémon of a member of the Elite Four to use seals in Pokémon Platinum. Incidentally, it is used in the double battle with Volkner, who uses his Electivire, the only Pokémon of a Gym Leader to have seals.
