Michael has a Snag Machine similar to that of Pokémon Colosseum's hero, Wes, and an Aura Reader, which makes the dark auras exuded by Shadow Pokémon visible as they were to Wes's companion, Rui. He is given these at the beginning of the game.

Michael lives at Professor Krane's Pokémon lab in Orre with his mother, Lily, who works for Professor Krane, and his sister, Jovi. He is an up-and-coming Trainer ready for his own journey with his Eevee, his starter Pokémon entrusted to him by his father.

Michael about to notice a Shadow Pokémon

Not only does Michael successfully defeat all of the Cipher Peons and Admins whom he encounters, but he also snags the Shadow Pokémon in their possession. His final feat is the capture of Greevil's full-fledged team of Shadow Pokémon, including XD001. His achievement brings about the disbandment of Cipher, at least under Greevil and Eldes' leadership.

During the game, Michael's father is mentioned multiple times as a distinguished public figure, but he is in fact deceased. This makes Michael similar to May and Brendan, one of whose father is a Gym Leader and the other a Pokémon Professor, but also to other player characters whose fathers are not present.

Michael also encounters two Generation IV Pokémon, Munchlax and Bonsly, with Bonsly being used in Battle Bingo and Munchlax appearing outside of battle. Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness was released during Generation III.
