From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Royce (Japanese: ロイス Royce) is a character of the day who appeared in Going for a Spinda!. He is a butler to Claire, who lost her lucky Spinda.
Royce provided Ash and his friends with a photo of the Spinda before the group agreed to assist in the search effort. He was also the person who suggested the group split up to cover more ground. Royce was able to tell various Spinda apart based on their footprints and knew about the move Dizzy Punch.
- His name seems to be based on the Rolls-Royce, a type of luxury car usually associated with rich people.
- Royce apparently has the notable ability to distinguish different Spinda by their tracks, being able to determine that a certain set of Spinda tracks did not belong to their lucky Spinda.
