Wes (Japanese: レオ Leo) is a young man who lives in the Orre region of the world. He is the protagonist of Pokémon Colosseum.

Storyline

Wes's past is never fully explained. He has apparently been with his Pokémon, Umbreon and Espeon, for years. Wes joins Team Snagem for unclear reasons, but then leaves.

Before he does, he plants a bomb to completely destroy Team Snagem's headquarters and steals the portable version of the Snag Machine - a device that can turn Poké Balls into Snag Balls - which can be used to catch Pokémon already owned by other Trainers. In the process Wes reveals the hidden base to the police of Orre.

Equipped with this device, Wes wanders around until he rescues Rui from some kidnappers in Phenac City. Using his high-tech hovering motorcycle to travel around Orre, Wes and Rui set off to uncover the conspiracy behind Cipher, Team Snagem and the Shadow Pokémon.

Wes's actions eventually attract the attention of both Ho-Oh and Celebi.

However, shortly after defeating Cipher and snagging/saving most of the Shadow Pokémon, there are reports that "Wes" started attacking people with a Shadow Togetic. Wes, with the help of News reports and Kids Grid, managed to track down the impostor to Outskirt Stand, where he was in the middle of attacking one of the people nearby. He then battled and defeated the impostor and then snagged his doppelgänger's Shadow Togetic. The impostor is later revealed to be an ex-Cipher Peon named Fein who had wanted revenge on Wes for shutting down Cipher, and declares his success in ruining Wes's reputation. However, Orre forgives Wes after realizing their mistake.

His whereabouts after the events of Pokémon Colosseum are unknown. His and Rui's heroic acts in bringing the first Shadow incident to an end are remembered by people in Orre in Pokémon XD, though their names are not mentioned to Michael.
