Main series

Wikstrom in the anime

Wikstrom debuted in Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction as part of the World of Pokémon intro. During his cameo, he was seen in a battle with Diantha.

Wikstrom made his main series debut in Searching for Chivalry!. Ash and Goh traveled to Kalos to participate in a training camp hosted by Wikstrom at the Castle of Chivalry. Wikstrom had the boys traverse through a variety of obstacle courses while wearing armor and defending themselves from Wikstrom's Pokémon. Ash and Goh eventually completed all of the challenges and earned Knight Medals for both themselves and their Pokémon. He also helped Goh evolve his Scyther into Scizor by giving it a Metal Coat and transferring it through a trade machine.

In Beyond Chivalry… Aiming to be a Leek Master!, Rinto revealed that he also trained at the Castle of Chivalry. During Rinto's battle with Ash, Ash used some of what he learned from Wikstrom to be able to win the battle.

In The Future is Now, Thanks to Strategy!, Wikstrom was briefly seen battling Drasna at the Castle of Chivalry. In Taking Two For The Team!, he met Ash prior to his World Coronation Series battle against Drasna in Lumiose City and saw that Ash's Farfetch'd had evolved into Sirfetch'd since their last meeting. He later watched the battle and congratulated Ash after he had won it.

In Toying With Your Motions!, Wikstrom watched Ash's match against Leon in the Masters Eight Tournament finals, shedding tears at witnessing Sirfetch'd's chivalrous performance.


True to his appearance, Wikstrom is very chivalrous in his mannerisms and choice of words, though is also very kind and offers support to anyone who seeks it. He believes in upholding the standards of chivalry in all aspects of life, as he believes chivalry to be the best method to achieve greater strength. In battle, whether it be a Pokémon battle or a fight with sword props, he attacks bravely and strives to overwhelm his opponent. Wikstrom also a strong supporter of youth, opening the Castle of Chivalry to provide young Trainers with a training ground to grow stronger and wiser.

Wikstrom is also prone to sudden bursts of extreme and joyous crying when witnessing something truly chivalrous, something that provides humor and concern alike to those around him.
