Trivia

  • Palmer is the last Trainer presented in the Pokémon Masters Animated Trailer to be added into Pokémon Masters EX, four years after the game's release (though he is not the last to become playable, as Cilan, Chili, and Cress remain unplayable).
  • Palmer and Regigigas's buddy move G Giga Impact likely references Regigigas's Ability Slow Start, as it requires Regigigas to move five times before being able to be used, similar to how Slow Start requires five turns to pass for Regigigas's stats to return to normal in the core series games.

Origin

Palmer's design is based on his appearance in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, SoulSilver, Brilliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl. Regigigas is a Pokémon that Palmer uses on his team during the 49th consecutive Battle Tower battle in the core series games. Regigigas's Dex entry comes from Pokémon Platinum.
