Iscan (Japanese: ススキ Susuki) is a warden tasked with watching over a special Basculegion.

In the core series

Iscan lives by the sea. He is timid and easily frightened, and as such, he dislikes Ghost-type Pokémon, with the exception of Basculegion. He and his Basculegion saved Palina - a warden from the Pearl Clan - when he was younger. The two of them soon began a romantic relationship, which they keep a secret to the rest of the clan members, since they are aware of Palina's bad reputation amongst the clans and Palina doesn't want Iscan to also get a bad reputation because of her.


In service to

As warden, Iscan cares for a special Basculegion that acts as a Ride Pokémon to assist humans.

  • Iscan in the only known member of the Diamond Clan whose home is located outside of the Diamond Settlement.
  • Iscan is the only warden from the Diamond Clan that cannot be battled.
  • His dislike of Ghost type Pokémon is ironic as the Pokémon he is tasked in watching over, Basculegion is part Ghost type.
