Hyde (Japanese: ハイド Hyde) is a character in The Isle of Armor in Pokémon Sword and Shield. He is the son of Mustard and Honey.

In the core series games

Despite his young age, Hyde is an intelligent child, having invented things such as the Exp. Charm and the Cram-o-matic. He prefers staying indoors and is never seen outside the Master Dojo.

When the player first arrives at the Master Dojo, Hyde gives them an Exp. Charm that he created. Afterwards, the player can give him 500 Watts to make his Cram-o-matic operational. As thanks, Hyde lets the player use the machine any time they want, sharing recipes about combining items in exchange for 100 Watts per recipe. After the player has defeated Mustard for the third time, Hyde will give the player a Porygon with its Hidden Ability.

Pokémon Sword and Shield

Master Dojo
  • First encounter
"Now here's someone who's not listed in my database of students..."
"Are you some kind of outlier? Here, you should give this a try."
"But don't open it, OK? It's got tech I developed inside, and I don't want you to go and ruin it."
  • Entering his room for the first time
"Huhuhu... Perfect. Now it's sure to work. All that's left is to fire it up with the ON button, so...here we go! Let's push it!"
"Cripes! It powered down. Must still need more Watts..."
  • Inspecting the Cram-o-matic for the first time
"You like it?"
Yes: "Heh. I thought you might be the type."
"That's my Cram-o-matic, and—just to be clear—it's the invention of the century!"
"It's my very own brilliant take on recycling. Though it doesn't do a thing right now, since it's out of power... If I just had enough Watts... But Mummy won't give me and more of hers..."
  • Inspecting the Cram-o-matic a second time
"All it would take is a measly 500 W to get the Cram-o-matic up and running, y'know?"
I can give you that: "Whoa! Seriously?! You'll give me the 500 W I need?!"
That's too bad:
  • Powering up the Cram-o-matic
"It'd take me ages outdoors to collect 500 W... And the outdoors and me... Well...let's just say, our systems aren't compatible."
"But you... Sorry, what was your name again? <player>? I guess you're more the outdoors type, huh?"
"I'll feed those Watts you gave me into the Cram-o-matic at once, and..."
"Power! On!"
"Huhuhu... Perfect. Just perfect."
"Put in four items you don't need, and you'll get one new item in exchange. If you put in four of the Apricorns that grow here on the Isle of Armor, then you might even get a rare Poké Ball...if you're real lucky."
"Since you gave me the Watts and all, feel free to use my Cram-o-matic as much as you like."
  • Inspecting the Cram-o-matic subsequent times
Learn more: "Fine, I'll explain how the Cram-o-matic works one more time... You take four items you don't need, you put 'em in, and then you get one new item. That's it. If you put in four of the Apricorns that grow here on the Isle of Armor, then you might even get a rare Poké Ball...if you're real lucky."
  • Asking for recipes
"Want me to share one of my recipes with you? I can. It'll cost you 100 W. That's all."
Yes: "So if you want a <item>... First you'll want to add a <first item>... Then you'll need a <second item>... a <third item>...and ... ... ... a <last item>."
No: "Hmph. You wouldn't get it anyway."
  • Obtaining a Rare Poké Ball for the first time
"What's that, <player>? Did you actually manage to get a rare ball?!"
"You've got some serious luck. I've run the numbers, and those things are rare."
"One of Daddy's friends came here once to make those kinds of balls for him. This real old guy..."

In the manga

Hyde in Pokémon Adventures

Pokémon Adventures

Hyde first appeared in PASS31. After Klara and Avery had found an unconscious Henry from the Soothing Wetlands, infected with poison, Klara made a call to Moon and asked her for a recipe for an antidote. Hyde then used his upgraded Cram-o-matic 2.0 to create the antidote, having upgraded the machine to be able to also create food and medicine in addition to recycling items.


  • Hyde's model is the same as a Youngster, but with a different color scheme, sweater logo, and head.
  • When obtaining an Apricorn Poké Ball for the first time from the Cram-o-matic, Hyde mentions an old guy who once came to the Master Dojo to make them for Mustard. This is a reference to Kurt.
