Bronius (Japanese: スムラ Sumra) is one of the Seven Sages of Team Plasma.

In the games

In Pokémon Black and White, Bronius is encountered along with Ghetsis, Rood and several Team Plasma Grunts at Team Plasma's hideout in Castelia City. He leaves the building shortly after the arrival of the player. He later appears with all the other sages (except Ghetsis) at N's Castle, blocking the player's way to N. However, the Unova Gym Leaders appear and clear the way to N. After Ghetsis has been defeated, Bronius can be found in Chargestone Cave, where he gives the player TM69 (Rock Polish) and is arrested by Looker.

Bronius does not appear in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.

Quotes

Pokémon Black and White

Castelia City

"I thought it would be humorous to prepare a hideout right in front of a Pokémon Gym, but we were detected more quickly than I imagined."
"Yes?"

N's Castle

"When the Way is forgotten, duty and justice appear."
"Accursed Gym Leaders!"
"You shall not interfere with Team Plasma... Or our king!"

Chargestone Cave

"When I saw you in Castelia, I did not care about your existence. Here in the Chargestone Cave, Ghetsis tested your ability... Once more, we will test you to learn what it is you are. Team Plasma, come out!"
"The Pokémon of our Team Plasma are also fighting for their Trainers. It was so obvious that I overlooked it... Thank you for reminding me of that. Here, I'd like you to take this."
"Pokémon do their best for their Trainers even when they are injured. I wonder whether my lord N understands what that means?"
"Those who left Team Plasma and are behaving with respect and understanding toward Pokémon... Them, please forgive! However, those who won't interact with Pokémon in a kind and honest way... Even I will never forgive them!"

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Bronius appears in The Case of the Missing Pokémon, when he was responsible for the kidnapping of various Pokémon in Castelia City, including Bianca's Litwick. When he is found at a building right next to the Pokémon Gym, which is "the root of the human evil" in his words, he reveals that Team Plasma intends to bring "the hero and the black lightning bolt" to Unova.

Bronius's Amoonguss
Amoonguss
Amoonguss was first used by a Team Plasma Grunt to knock Bianca unconscious so that he could liberate her Litwick. In the following round, Black followed the spores it left behind to find out where Team Plasma had been keeping the Pokémon they kidnapped. Amoonguss battled with Black's Nite, but was easily defeated from a chop to the head. During the attack on the Pokémon League, it was used alongside the other Seven Sages' Pokémon to to fend off several Trainers that were trying to rescue the captured Gym Leaders.

None of Amoonguss's moves are known, and its Ability is Effect Spore.
