Florian (Japanese: ハルト Haruto) is the male player character of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. His female counterpart is Juliana. He is a student of Naranja AcademyS/Uva AcademyV.
In the core series
Florian is a boy who recently moved to the Paldea region with his mother, and now lives in the small settlement of Cabo Poco. One day, he leaves home to start studying at Naranja AcademyS/Uva AcademyV in the region's biggest city, Mesagoza. Along the way to the academy, Florian and his neighbor, a Champion-ranked Trainer named Nemona, encounter a mysterious Pokémon named KoraidonS/MiraidonV, as well as Arven, another academy student, who gives Florian the Pokémon's Poké Ball. At Mesagoza, Florian saves a girl named Penny from being harassed by academy delinquents known as Team Star, receives a Tera Orb from Nemona so he can utilize the Terastal phenomenon, and is contacted by Professor SadaS/Professor TuroV, who reveals the Pokémon he's now traveling with originally belonged to them, and asks him to take care of it.
Three days after Florian's arrival at Mesagoza, the academy's annual independent study assignment, the "Treasure Hunt", begins, urging the academy students to travel Paldea and find their own personal treasures. During the Treasure Hunt, Florian follows Nemona's urging to challenge the eight Gyms around Paldea, helps Arven defeat the five Titan Pokémon and collect each of their respective Herba Mystica, and assists a mysterious individual calling themselves Cassiopeia to defeat the five squads of Team Star at their respective bases.
Once Florian has achieved the Champion Rank and defeated Nemona at her full strength, helped Arven heal his injured Mabosstiff with the power of the Herba Mystica, and exposed Penny as the leader of Team Star, he, Nemona, Arven, and Penny follow the Professor's invitation to meet them at Area Zero. While traversing through Area Zero to reach the Professor's laboratory, the group of friends learns of Paradox Pokémon, which the Professor has brought to the modern day from a different era using a time machine they've invented, with Florian's KoraidonS/MiraidonV being the first such Pokémon. At the laboratory, Florian discovers that the real Professor is in fact dead and the "Professor" he's been communicating with is only a robot replica of them, who wishes to stop the time machine. With the assistance of his Dragon partner, Florian is able to overcome the time machine's defenses, although the robot Professor is forced to use the time machine to travel to another era in order to stop it completely.
Following the adventure at Area Zero, Florian takes part in the Academy Ace Tournament, organized to celebrate his new Champion status, and wins it, officially becoming the strongest Trainer in the academy.
Florian adventures across Paldea with KoraidonS/MiraidonV, which he can ride on, although it won't become usable in battle until the end of the main game.
