From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Horacio (Japanese: ハヤテ Hayate) is a recurring character who first appeared in Mounting an Electrifying Charge!. He is a rival of Sophocles.
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.
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 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.
He will appear again in SM119.

| This Shiny Charjabug is Horacio's only known Pokémon, given to him by his father. He used it during the Charjabug race, believing that its supreme equipment and Speed-enhancing nature would guarantee a victory for him. However, during the race, he constantly kept pushing Charjabug to its limits, and eventually it failed to even reach the goal due to an icy slope.
Charjabug appeared again in SM106. It followed its trainer during a race with Sophocles for a legendary Bug Stone, which Horacio believed he could evolve Charjabug with. However, after obtaining the stone, Horacio learned it had no effect on Charjabug.
None of Charjabug's moves are known and it has a Timid Nature.

Horacio has competed in the following Pokémon competitions:
- The car that Horacio's Charjabug drives resembles a Shiny Genesect.
- His Charjabug's color scheme and car design is a reference to the character Char Aznable from Mobile Suit Gundam. Horacio's team's name, the Red Comet team (Japanese: チーム赤い流星 Team Red Meteor), is a reference to Char's epithet, the Red Comet (Japanese: 赤い彗星).
