From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Reggie (Japanese: レイジ Reiji) is Paul's older brother. He is a Pokémon Breeder living in Veilstone City.
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. 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.
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 also had a cameo appearance in DP111.
This listing is of Reggie's known Pokémon:
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.
- Reggie's Japanese name, Reiji, contains "Rei," and Paul's Japanese name is Shinji. Shinji and Rei are both names of characters from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
- Reggie has Staraptor and Bibarel, the final evolved forms of the first two available wild Pokémon in the Sinnoh region, Starly and Bidoof respectively, both of which are under his care as well.
- It is also coincidental that Reggie's name is phonetically identical to the "Regi" trio, whose trainer defeated him.
