'''Horacio''' (Japanese: '''ハヤテ''' ''Hayate'') is a recurring character in the [[Pokémon anime]]. He is a [[rival]] of {{an|Sophocles}} who first appeared in ''[[SM041|Mounting an Electrifying Charge!]]''.

In ''[[SM041|Mounting an Electrifying Charge!]]'', Horacio entered the [[Charjabug race]] as the leader of the Red Comet team with his {{Shiny}} {{p|Charjabug}} and his brothers {{OBP|Dana|SM041}} and [[Yansu]]. He was certain that his Charjabug's top-class equipment and {{stat|Speed}}-increasing [[nature]] would allow him to win the race with ease. During the race, he constantly mocked {{an|Sophocles}} and his own {{TP|Sophocles|Charjabug}}. He also kept yelling at his brothers and insisted they keep pushing on, despite the fact that his Charjabug was getting exhausted from all the obstacles it had to face during the race. Eventually, Horacio's Charjabug got stuck when it was unable to climb an ice-covered slope. Sophocles's team eventually won the race, much to Horacio and his brothers' dismay.

In [[SM106]], Horacio and his brothers arrived at [[Vast Poni Canyon]]. There, he challenged Sophocles to a race to see who could obtain a legendary "Bug Stone" that he believed could evolve any {{type|Bug}}. Due to Sophocles's fear of the dark, he struggled to get through a cave, allowing Horacio to easily get ahead and make his way to a rope bridge that led to the Bug Stone. Horacio tried crossing the bridge, only for it to collapse underneath his feet, leaving him and Charjabug to hold onto it for safety. Sophocles's own Charjabug subsequently evolved into a {{p|Vikavolt}} and carried Horacio and his Charjabug to safety, before retrieving the Bug Stone. Afterwards, Sophocles gave the Bug Stone to Horacio, only for it to not work when he tried it on his Charjabug. He then learned that Charjabug evolve into Vikavolt with the canyon's [[special magnetic field]], not an [[evolutionary stone]]. Horacio then vowed to train and evolve his Charjabug so they could face Sophocles in a Vikavolt race one day, before taking his leave.

In his [[SM041|first appearance]], Horacio was arrogant and condescending, believing that his Charjabug's top-class equipment and {{stat|Speed}}-increasing [[nature]] would allow him to win the race with ease.

He also disregarded the well-being of his Pokémon, by not allowing his Charjabug to take a break during pit stops, resulting in Charjabug being too exhausted to continue and allowing Sophocles and his own Charjabug to get ahead of them. This was seen again in ''[[SM106|Evolving Research!]]'', when he arrived at a bridge with the Bug Stone at the other side. He disregarded Sophocles's warning about the bridge being unstable and continued on, resulting in the bridge collapsing, and he had to be saved by Sophocles's newly-evolved {{TP|Sophocles|Vikavolt}}.

By [[SM119]], Horacio appears to have been humbled, as seen after he lost to Sophocles in the [[Vikavolt race]], where he offered the latter a friendly handshake. He also learned the value of fair play, as seen during the race, where he had his Vikavolt go back to help Sophocles's Vikavolt after the latter saved it from Team Rocket's mecha. Later, after everyone's Vikavolt were freed, he resumed the race at the same time as everyone else.

Horacio (Japanese: ハヤテ Hayate) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. He is a rival of Sophocles who first appeared in Mounting an Electrifying Charge!.

History

In Mounting an Electrifying Charge!, Horacio entered the Charjabug race as the leader of the Red Comet team with his Shiny Charjabug and his brothers Dana and Yansu. He was certain that his Charjabug's top-class equipment and Speed-increasing nature would allow him to win the race with ease. During the race, he constantly mocked Sophocles and his own Charjabug. He also kept yelling at his brothers and insisted they keep pushing on, despite the fact that his Charjabug was getting exhausted from all the obstacles it had to face during the race. Eventually, Horacio's Charjabug got stuck when it was unable to climb an ice-covered slope. Sophocles's team eventually won the race, much to Horacio and his brothers' dismay.

Horacio's rivalry with Sophocles

In Evolving Research!, Horacio and his brothers arrived at Vast Poni Canyon. There, he challenged Sophocles to a race to see who could obtain a legendary "Bug Stone" that he believed could evolve any Bug-type. Due to Sophocles's fear of the dark, he struggled to get through a cave, allowing Horacio to easily get ahead and make his way to a rope bridge that led to the Bug Stone. Horacio tried crossing the bridge, only for it to collapse underneath his feet, leaving him and Charjabug to hold onto it for safety. Sophocles's own Charjabug subsequently evolved into a Vikavolt and carried Horacio and his Charjabug to safety, before retrieving the Bug Stone. Afterwards, Sophocles gave the Bug Stone to Horacio, only for it to not work when he tried it on his Charjabug. He then learned that Charjabug evolve into Vikavolt with the canyon's special magnetic field, not an evolutionary stone. Horacio then vowed to train and evolve his Charjabug so they could face Sophocles in a Vikavolt race one day, before taking his leave.

In SM119, Horacio participated the Vikavolt race to settle his score with Sophocles. It was also revealed that his Charjabug had evolved into Vikavolt during his time at Vast Poni Canyon. Eventually, he lost the race and congratulated Sophocles for beating him once again before vowing to have a rematch with him someday.

Character

In his first appearance, Horacio was arrogant and condescending, believing that his Charjabug's top-class equipment and Speed-increasing nature would allow him to win the race with ease. He was also a bad sport, mocking Sophocles and the latter's Charjabug. He also disregarded the well-being of his Pokémon, by not allowing his Charjabug to take a break during pit stops, resulting in Charjabug being too exhausted to continue and allowing Sophocles and his own Charjabug to get ahead of them. This was seen again in Evolving Research!, when he arrived at a bridge with the Bug Stone at the other side. He disregarded Sophocles's warning about the bridge being unstable and continued on, resulting in the bridge collapsing, and he had to be saved by Sophocles's newly-evolved Vikavolt.

By SM119, Horacio appears to have been humbled, as seen after he lost to Sophocles in the Vikavolt race, where he offered the latter a friendly handshake. He also learned the value of fair play, as seen during the race, where he had his Vikavolt go back to help Sophocles's Vikavolt after the latter saved it from Team Rocket's mecha. Later, after everyone's Vikavolt were freed, he resumed the race at the same time as everyone else.
