From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Flint (Japanese: オーバ Ōba) is a master Fire-type trainer.
In the games
In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, Flint is the third member of the Sinnoh Elite Four. He is friends with Volkner, the Gym Leader of Sunyshore City.
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.
His team consists of the following Pokémon:
"You had me counting the days on my fingers waiting for you to come. I heard from Volkner what you did in Sunyshore. You managed to light a fire in that guy's heart again. How could you not expect me to look forward to seeing you in battle?
"I can feel your determination. Your will is overpowering me!
"This situation... This is heating up! I'm blazing now!
"...! I wasn't expecting this! I wasn't looking down on you... But I didn't think for one second that I'd lose! This is fantastic! You and your Pokémon are inspiring!"
"...Whew... Burnt right down to cinders..."
- Flint has a slight resemblence to the McDonald's mascot, Ronald McDonald due to the red afro, yellow shirt and slightly pale face. Because of this, he has been a butt of many jokes among Pokémon fans.
- Although he specializes in fire-types, only two of the five Pokémon he uses are actually fire-type.
||From 大葉, a name for the perilla.
||Means "stream" or "river". Chosen because fires are started with flints.
||From ardent, burning.
||From latin ignis, fire.
||Literally means volcano.
||Similar to fuego, fire. May also be related to Hephaestus, the Greek god of fire and metallurgy.
