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.
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.

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 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.
  • Reggie also seems to be older than 18 or even 20 years of age, considering his maturity and his ability to drive a big, aquamarine car/van.
