Reggie (Japanese: レイジ Reiji) is Paul's older brother. He is a Pokémon Breeder living in Veilstone City.


Reggie seems to have the same attitude towards Pokémon as Ash, which is very surprising seeing as that he is the older brother of Paul. He has become friends with Ash and co. Several people have noted that Reggie and Paul are as different as Ash and Paul are.


Reggie first appeared in Lost Leader Strategy!. During this meeting, he and Ash battled in a three-on-three match; although Ash's Staravia lost to his Swalot, Turtwig and Pikachu successfully defeated his Bibarel and Staraptor respectively.

Reggie has earned the 8 badges from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh. He has also challenged the Battle Frontier and won six of the seven Frontier Symbols.
Reggie in his battle with Brandon
He decided to become a Breeder after failing to get the Brave Symbol, as revealed in Aiding the Enemy. Unlike his younger brother, he treats his Pokémon with love and care and thanks them after working hard in a battle. This difference was also noted by Zoey who said that Paul and Reggie seemed like complete opposites.

In Crossing the Battle Line!, Reggie and his Staraptor helped Ash's Staravia to learn Brave Bird. He appeared again in Enter Galactic! where he used Paul's Electabuzz to help Ash fight Team Galactic.

He made a cameo appearance in Saving the World From Ruins!. He also appeared in A Pyramiding Rage!, where he watched his brother's battle against Brandon. In this episode Reggie's loss against Brandon, which was being watched by Paul, was shown in a flashback. Back then he was told by Brandon that he lacked a unique battle strategy which is why he gave up on being a Pokémon Trainer. This incident is what caused Paul to be more focused on a Pokémon's strength than anything else.

Reggie reappeared in Pedal to the Mettle! and Evolving Strategies! to watch the battle between Ash and Paul, which was suggested by him at the end of A Pyramiding Rage! to see how far the two Trainers have developed.


Reggie's Bibarel
Bibarel is the first known Pokémon in Reggie's party. It was chosen to battle Ash's Turtwig in Lost Leader Strategy!. Bibarel knows a variety of powerful moves such as Secret Power. Turtwig was almost defeated when Bibarel's Secret Power made it fall asleep. Bibarel eventually fell to Turtwig, however.
Debut Lost Leader Strategy!
Reggie's Swalot
Swalot is the second Pokémon Reggie used in his battle against Ash in Lost Leader Stategy!. It was chosen to battle Ash's Staravia. Reggie used Stockpile to raise Swalot's defense so that it wasn't so susceptible to Staravia's attacks. Swalot was the only of Reggie's Pokémon that was victorious against one of Ash's Pokémon, defeating Staravia with a powerful Spit Up.
Debut Lost Leader Strategy!
Reggie's Staraptor
Staraptor was the final Pokémon Reggie chose in his battle with Ash in Lost Leader Strategy!. It was used in a battle against Ash's Pikachu where it was defeated by Volt Tackle. Staraptor then taught Ash's Staravia Brave Bird in Crossing the Battle Line!. It also reappeared in a flashback in Aiding the Enemy! together with Reggie.

Paul's Electivire
Main article: Paul's Electivire

During Ash's stay in Veilstone City. Reggie was caring for Paul's Electabuzz, however it was quick to get into a fight with Ash's Pikachu as the two had been holding a grudge for some time.

When Team Galactic attempted to steal the Veilstone Meteorites, Reggie used Electabuzz to fight off the Golbat that Saturn's grunts were using to create a distraction. During the battle, Electabuzz and Pikachu saved each other from sneak attacks and this helped them end their feud. Afterwards Reggie sent Electabuzz back to Paul for his upcoming battle at the Pastoria Gym.

It was mentioned in Lost Leader Strategy! that Reggie takes care of Paul's other reserve Pokémon as well. Paul had left Electabuzz with Reggie prior to Lost Leader Strategy! and had taken it back before Chim - Charred!.

Other Pokémon seen in Reggie's care


It is unknown if any of these Pokémon belong to Paul; possibly none of them, given Paul's recruitment methods. Also, Paul may not be the only trainer Reggie looks after Pokémon for and the above ones may belong to other unknown trainers.
