Alex and Liko

Alex made his first physical appearance in HZ009. After welcoming Friede and Roy to their home, he expresses his worries to Friede, which he reassured him that with the time spent with the Rising Volt Tacklers, she had fun. However, Liko overheard what he said, which caused their relationship to temporarily become distant. Eventually, Liko came back to apologize on how she acted towards him and told her father that with her and Sprigatito, if it was alright for her to start her own adventure, which he understands and approved her decision. Later in the episode, he told Liko and Friede that there were sightings of a black Rayquaza over Artazon. He also gave Roy some books.

Alex reappeared in HZ012, explaining to Liko about his inspirations for writing the book about Lucius, the Ancient Adventurer.


Alex is a caring father and spends most of his time painting portraits of Pokémon. Alex is well recognized for his talent as a painter, including other artists such as Brassius as fans.


On hand

Alex's Fidough
Fidough is Alex's only known Pokémon. It assists with his work by producing yeast. Initially, Sprigatito was jealous of the way Liko interacted with Fidough, and this caused Liko's Pokémon to shy away from her for a while. After Fidough was able to befriend Sprigatito and sleep together, Alex made a painting of the two Pokémon.

None of Fidough's moves are known.
