Trivia

  • Since Version 2.21.0*, all versions of Kris use special voice-over lines upon entering a team that contains certain Trainers (regardless of their partner Pokémon) and sharing victory with them. As of that version, those Trainers include Ethan, Lyra, and Professor Oak*.
  • Sygna Suit Kris & Suicune are the first Master Fair-exclusive sync pair to have the Support role.
    • Unlike the previous Support Master sync pairs (which are obtained through Battle Points), Kris has the "Flag Bearer" Master Passive skill instead of the "Teamwork" Passive skill.

Origin

Kris's design is based on her appearance in Pokémon Crystal. Totodile is the one of the starter Pokémon of Johto in the core series games. In addition, Kris's anime counterpart has been depicted with Totodile and its evolutions. Totodile, Croconaw, and Feraligatr's Dex entries come from Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire.

Suicune is the game mascot of Pokémon Crystal, in which Kris was introduced, and is required to be pursued throughout Johto during the story before it can be caught. In addition, her Pokémon Adventures counterpart is strongly associated with Suicune, even teaming up with it once. Suicune's Dex entry comes from Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire.
