Weiss (left) and Schwarz (right), two Team Plasma grunts

Schwarz (Japanese: ネーロ Nero) and Weiss (Japanese: ビアンコ Bianco) are characters of the day in the Pokémon anime who appeared in Saving Braviary!. They are two Team Plasma Grunts who serve as the main antagonists in the episode.

The duo was assigned a mission to capture a Braviary but N showed up to rescue him. However, a tracking chip in the Pokémon triggered their alarm and Schwarz and Weiss gave chase to N. N narrowly made it to a nearby Pokémon Center before the duo retrieved the injured Pokémon. When the Pokémon Center's power went out, Schwarz and Weiss broke in to get Braviary, but he already left with the help of N, Ash and his friends.

Schwarz and Weiss then hid in some bushes, waiting for the right moment to strike. As soon as N came by with Braviary, the duo sent out their Seviper and Zangoose. They attacked N, leaving him injured. Ash, Iris and Cilan came to his aid and battled the duo. Schwarz and Weiss were tough but were beaten by Excadrill, Pikachu and Braviary.
