(Japanese: バージル Virgil) is a recurring character who debuted in BW102 and a rival of Ash Ketchum.


Young Virgil

As a young man, Virgil was lost in a forest with his first Eevee. After some time, this Eevee evolves into an Umbreon to help him out of the forest. From there, Virgil has a greater relationship between him and the Eevee, training and evolving those that he was acquiring.

Virgil's Eeveelutions

Virgil is a rescue worker, a job which he carries out together with his father Jeff and his older brother Davey. He finds Ash, Iris and Cilan during their trajectory to Higaki City, where Ash wants to participate in the championship of the Pokémon League of Unova, after presenting, Ash and Virgil come together to solve a problem involving a reservoir taken by wild Cryogonal. Later, Virgil reveals that he intends to enter the Unova League, making him another one of Ash's many rivals.

He reappeared in BW103. His brother Davey brought him to Higaki City by helicopter to compete in the Higaki Conference. There, he met up with Ash, his friends and all of Ash's other rivals in Unova. In the first round he battled with his Vaporeon against Ultimo and his Crustle.

He will reappear in BW104.


Due to one of his Eevee evolving into Umbreon to help him out of a dark forest, Virgil has been very grateful towards it and caught more Eevee to complete his collection on Eeveelutions, giving him the status as an Eevee Trainer.
