Flint (Japanese: オーバ Ohba) is a Fire-type Trainer and member of the Sinnoh Elite Four.

In the core series

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, Flint is the third member of the Sinnoh Elite Four. He is friends with Volkner, the Gym Leader of Sunyshore City. Flint's younger brother is Buck, and their grandfather runs the Battleground.

Flint first encounters the player in Sunyshore City, informing him about the recent blackouts and Volkner's disillusionment as a Gym Leader. He asks the player to bring back the excitement of Pokémon battles to Volkner before seemingly returning to the Pokémon League.

In Pokémon Platinum, Flint and Volkner challenge the player and their rival to a Double Battle upon their arrival to the Battle Zone.

Main series

Flint in the anime

Flint was first mentioned in An Elite Meet and Greet! by Lucian, and again in A Trainer and Child Reunion! by Officer Jenny.

Flint made his physical debut in Flint Sparks the Fire!. He noticed Ash's determination as he walked by the Sunyshore Gym, and went on to escort the group directly to Volkner, who was hiding away in the Sunyshore Tower. After Volkner declined Ash's challenge to a Gym battle, Flint took the group to a café run by his old friend, the Proprietor. Flint explained that he use to battle the Sunyshore street hoodlums with his Chimchar when he was younger. He came across Volkner one day and defeated him in battle, though the next time the pair met, Volkner won. The two soon became rivals and later good friends after having a Tag Battle against the Proprietor. After turning 20, Flint left his hometown and eventually became a member of the Sinnoh Elite Four. At the same time, Volkner became the Sunyshore Gym Leader.

Young Flint and his Chimchar

However, Flint constantly returned to Sunyshore City to convince the increasingly despondent Volkner to start battling again. After Volkner refused Ash's challenge for a battle again, Flint battled Ash in his place and defeated Ash's Pikachu, Infernape, and Buizel with his Infernape easily. In the process, Volkner observed the match and became reinvigorated upon observing Ash's teamwork with his Pokémon. Flint was glad to see this development and watched as Volkner reconsidered his decision to turn Ash away.

In The Fleeing Tower of Sunyshore!, Flint sat in the grandstands to watch Volkner go up against Ash. The Gym battle was interrupted by Team Rocket after they stole the Sunyshore Tower and caused the city to have a power outage. Flint, Volkner, and Ash all jumped onto the tower as Team Rocket was beginning to rocket into the sky, though Flint lost his grip and feel into the ocean below. However, he worked with Brock to provide pedal power to the local Pokémon Center during the crisis. Flint later watched as Volkner landed the Sunyshore Tower back onto the ground, and he wished Dawn the best with her upcoming Contests as she and her friends left Sunyshore.

In The Eighth Wonder of the Sinnoh World!, Flint watched Volkner battle Ash again. In the next episode, he saved Kenny's Floatzel from Team Rocket and won against Jasmine in an exhibition match. He also revealed that he would be challenging Cynthia for the title of Sinnoh League Champion.

Ash and his friends watched Flint battle Cynthia at the Champion League on TV in Memories are Made of Bliss!. As mentioned by the emcee, Flint's Infernape managed to defeat two of Cynthia's Pokémon. However, Flint lost the match after his Infernape was defeated by Cynthia's Garchomp.

Flint made a cameo appearance in the ending credits of Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

Character

Flint is a supportive friend, and despite all of his success as a member of the Elite Four, he made several efforts to reach out to Volkner over the years. He is also passionate about battling and a prolific user of defense, a strategy he used to defeat Ash and later Jasmine of the Olivine Gym. In addition to strategy, in Four Roads Diverged in a Pokémon Port!, Flint told Ash that having confidence in oneself is just as critical to being a successful Pokémon Trainer.

History

Diamond & Pearl chapter

Flint debuts in Double Trouble with Dialga and Palkia VI, when Volkner invites him to help him investigate a giant hole that appeared in the Sendoff Spring.

Platinum chapter

Flint and Volkner are seen in the Fight Area with their Pokémon. They are later seen investigating the hole at the Sendoff Spring when they receive a call from Buck. He tells Buck about the object that he is looking for at Stark Mountain, the Magma Stone, but the reception is lost and they get cut off.

Later, Flint and Volkner witness Platinum and her friends traveling to the Distortion World. Volkner teases Flint about caring that his younger brother has been injured, though Flint denies it and intends to defeat the person that beat Buck. Later, they arrive at the Sendoff Spring, and enter the Distortion World through the Turnback Cave.

Upon arriving, they are attacked by Giratina and are chased throughout the Distortion World by it. Despite a powerful combination attack they used, Giratina proves too powerful for them and defeats the two with a Dragon Breath. They manage to get up soon after, only for Giratina to leave to fight the other Legendary Pokémon in the area.

After Charon is defeated, Giratina tries one last time to attack Platinum, only for Flint and Volkner to attack it from behind and defeat it. Satisfied, the two hi-five each other in a prideful boast of their strength.

Pokémon

Flint's Magmortar
Magmortar
Magmortar is the only known Pokémon in Flint's possession. He was seen with Flint in the Fight Area along with Volkner and his Electivire. Later, he fought Giratina at the Distortion World only to be defeated. Later, he fought Giratina again, this time actually managing to defeat it.

Magmortar's only known move is Lava Plume, and his Ability is Flame Body.

Debut Leaping Past Lopunny
Flint in Diamond and Pearl Adventure!

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!

Flint appeared in Hareta's Heart's Desire as he found out about the tournament and wanted to compete in it. Rapidash was the first Pokémon sent out. It was up against Hareta's Empoleon. Despite the type-disadvantage, Rapidash was able to defeat Empoleon with a Sunny Day/SolarBeam combo. He recalls Rapidash and sends out Drifblim while Hareta sends out Regigigas and Misdreavus.

However, Hareta had no choice but to use Misdreavus as he was disallowed to use two Pokémon at once. Drifblim was able to defeat Misdreavus with Payback but due to it using Skill Swap beforehand, both Pokémon were out. Hareta than uses his Regigigas and Flint calls out Rapidash once again. Regigigas was able to defeat Rapidash with Mega Punch. Flint has one more Pokémon but resigns before even using it, giving Hareta the win.

Later, in Gathering of the Legendary Pokémon, he along with the Gym Leaders and Sinnoh Elite Four head to the Galactic HQ to take on the remaining Team Galactic grunts.

Pokémon

Flint's Rapidash
Rapidash
Rapidash was the first Pokémon used in the battle against Hareta. It went up against his Empoleon where it was able to knock it out despite the type-disadvantage.

Rapidash's known moves are Agility, Sunny Day, and Solar Beam.

Debut Hareta's Heart's Desire
Flint's Drifblim
Drifblim
Drifblim was used to finish off Hareta's Misdreavus seeing that Hareta could not use both Misdreavus and Regigigas at the same time as it was against the rules to do so. However, after Drifblim went for an attack, it was stopped by Misdreavus's Skill Swap which resulted in both side's Pokémon being knocked out as Misdreavus used Drifblim's Ability Aftermath from the effect of Skill Swap.

Drifblim's only known move is Payback, and its Ability is Aftermath*.

Debut Hareta's Heart's Desire
Mentioned
Flint's Steelix
Steelix
After both Drifblim and Rapidash got knocked out, Flint mentions that he has a Steelix, but does not want to send it out for the match as he knows that it wouldn't stand a chance against Hareta's Regigigas.

None of Steelix's moves are known.

Trivia

  • Although he specializes in Fire types, in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, only two of the five Pokémon that Flint uses are actually Fire-type, with only eight Fire-type moves between them, only four of which are actual attacking moves. Each of Flint's Pokémon knows at least one Fire-type move. With only two Pokémon of his type specialty in Diamond and Pearl, he has the lowest number of Pokémon on his team that are of his specialty type of all the Elite Four members. In Pokémon Platinum, his entire team consists of his type specialty.
    • This can be attributed to the fact that Diamond and Pearl's Pokédex contains only two complete lines of Fire-type Pokémon, both of which he uses the final evolutions of.
  • Flint's Magmortar is the only Pokémon of a member of the Elite Four to use Seals in Pokémon Platinum. Incidentally, it is used in the Double Battle with Volkner, who uses his Electivire, the only Pokémon of a Gym Leader to have Seals.
  • When the player talks to Volkner in the Villa, he reveals that the reason that Flint uses the Fire type is his name.
  • Flint is the only member of the Sinnoh Elite Four that doesn't have a Pokémon in any of his teams that knows Stone Edge.
  • In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Shauntal mentions Flint in one of her pre-battle quotes from her novels. She writes that his hairstyle "would be great with Head Charge," and that he is commanding a Pokémon to use Overheat.
  • Flint has the least number of Pokémon Pokémon 4 (excluding Lv X cards) cards at four compared to the typical five cards like all of the other Sinnoh Elite Four members
