Charles (Japanese: チャールズ Charles) is a motorcyclist from Driftveil City.

In the games

In Black and White, Charles asks the player to try a new kind of battling. In Pokémon Black, Charles has a Rotation Battle with the player, while in Pokémon White, he has a Triple Battle with the player. He is the first NPC that the player can engage in either of these types of battle. In both versions, he uses the same team. He is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Motorcyclist (Japanese: バイクずき Bike Lover).

In Black 2 and White 2, he is encountered at first on Route 5, where he prevents the player from entering Driftveil City until they beat the Nimbasa Gym due to having a battle with another Trainer. Once the Gym is beaten, he can be battled in a mandatory Rotation BattleB2/Triple BattleW2 and will let the player pass once defeated. Later in Driftveil, he can be fought again, this time in a Triple BattleB2/Rotation BattleW2 with the same team as before.

In the anime

Charles's alter ego, The Mighty Accelguard

Charles appeared in The Mighty Accelguard to the Rescue!. He assumes an alter-ego known as The Mighty Accelguard (Japanese: 快傑ア☆ギルダー Kaiketsu A☆Gilder) to fight crime alongside his Accelgor.

With the help of Ash, Cilan, Iris and Linda, they managed to defeat the evil Doctor Ferrara/Cryogonal Man and his henchmen.

Charles reappeared briefly in Stopping the Rage of Legends! Part 1 with Accelgor where he gave a tour of the Driftveil Market to Ash and this friends. He also told them that the market received its Revival Herbs from Milos Island.

Pokémon

Charles's Accelgor
Accelgor
Accelgor is Charles's partner when he is in his civilian identity but when he transforms into The Mighty Accelguard he becomes his trusted sidekick. Like all of its species, Accelgor is quick and swift and uses this to its advantage when fighting crime, despite Charles's usual clumsiness. During Cryogonal Man's attempt to rob Cold Storage, Accelgor showed off its abilities and was able to defeat Cryogonal Man's powerful Vanillish in battle.

Accelgor's known moves are Agility, Double Team, Struggle Bug and Swift.

Trivia

  • Charles's alter-ego Kaiketsu A☆Gilder most likely draws inspiration from Kaiketsu Zubat, with certain other aspects, like his A☆Gilder Kick attack, from the titular characters of the Kamen Rider Series.
  • Unlike most bike-riding characters in Pokémon Black and White, Charles does not speed up when the player holds down the B-button.
