Iscan (Japanese: ススキ Susuki) is a warden tasked with watching over a special Basculegion found in the Cobalt Coastlands of Hisui. He is a member of the Diamond Clan.

In the core series games

Iscan lives by the sea, in a secluded area of Aipom Hill. 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 from the rest of the clan members, since they are aware of Palina's bad reputation amongst the clans and how Palina did not 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 is 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.
  • Iscan is the only warden who does not have any Pokémon of his own, not counting the special Basculegion that he cares for.
  • His dislike of Ghost-type Pokémon is ironic as the Pokémon he is tasked with watching over, Basculegion, is part Ghost-type.
