Tyme is the older sister of Ryme. Her sister Ryme is one of eight current Gym Leaders of Paldea, while Tyme used to be a Rock-type Gym Leader. She is a kindhearted person and will answer questions when a student or the player is in need. However, she avoids questions relating to why she quit as a Gym Leader, as they make her fill up with nostalgia and sadness. Nevertheless, she enjoys being a teacher at Naranja AcademyS/Uva AcademyV. She often scolds Clavell for breaking his own academy's rules, and Hassel for his emotional outbursts during his own classes.

She is calm and poised, though at times she demonstrates a more excitable side, such as at the end of her bond and during her Academy Ace battle. She also shows some nervous tendencies in her bond.

In her forming bonds, she becomes anxious that someone is watching her. Because her sister is a Ghost-type specialist, she is familiar enough with Ghost types to recognize that it must be a human following her. She creates a plan to force them out into the open and learns that it is a student waiting to ask her a question. When she confronts the student, it turns out they are a fan of hers from her time as a Gym Leader, and they wish to know why she never talks about her reason for quitting. She clarifies that her reason was simply to focus on her teaching career, and that she knows the Gym is in good hands with her sister.

Her classes explain the math behind various Pokémon battling mechanics in a more clear and specific way than other games in the series do. She also participates in the Academy Ace Tournament.


Tyme will Terastallize her Garganacl at the first opportunity.

Tyme was introduced as a Supporter card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English Scarlet & Violet Series (the Japanese SV Era). It was first released as an SV-P Promotional card, with the background artwork by Akira Komayama. It asks the opponent to guess the HP of a Pokémon from the player's hand (based on the Pokémon's name), and if they guess correctly, the opponent draws 4 cards; otherwise the player draws 4 cards.


  • Befitting of her status as a Rock-type specialist, Tyme's hair resembles a pattern of laid bricks.
  • Tyme's Japanese name (タイム Thyme), is based on the herb, which is known to have many minerals, some of which are also found in rock salt, hence her signature Pokémon, Garganacl.
  • Tyme is the first NPC to be shown using a Dusk Form Lycanroc in battle.
