Ricard Nouveau (Japanese: ピノ・ノワール Pinot Noir) is an A-class Pokémon Connoisseur and the character of the day in Clash of the Connoisseurs!. He was chosen along with Cilan by Mr. Hatterly to help choose a Pokémon for his daughter, Marigold. Ricard believed that the perfect Pokémon for her would be Petilil because of its scent and cuteness. Cilan disagreed with him, thinking that a half Grass-type would be more suitable rather than a pure one. Since they couldn't agree, the two Connoisseurs decided to have a battle to see who was right. Ricard ended up losing the battle.
He reappeared in a flashback in Survival of the Striaton Gym!, with Cilan remembering the battle they had as one of the many he had during his travels.
