The Pokémon Horizon The anime sees Dot step up and eventually become part of the team with Riko and Roy, confirming that the show has adopted the formula with three main characters. Dot chooses to become a full-fledged trainer by capturing her first Pokémon, Quaxly, thus completing the Paldea beginner trio.
Up until now, Dot has only been seen in her room, and despite using Quaxly in her videos as Nidothing (Gurumin in Japanese), never seems to have actually caught it in the Poké Ball. . Riko’s disappearance eventually led Dot to leave her room and help with the search, and she and Quaxly were able to locate Riko in Levincia, with suspicious help from Gym Leader Iono. However, the team still has to find a way to get Riko’s pendant back, and that could mean a Pokémon battle. In episode #16 of Pokémon Horizons, Friede took a Poké Ball from her pocket and gave it to Dot, encouraging her to officially befriend Quaxly by catching it.
Dot and Quaxly decide to become Trainers and Pokémon
Dot actually catches Quaxly, although it’s clear that her Poké Ball throwing skills need to be effective. Anyway, Quaxly jumped on the ball and continued to prove himself in the episode, taking multiple hits and getting up every time. It can even perform an amazingly powerful water gun, which acts as a signal to lure Riko, Roy, and/or Friede to her location. Despite having only decided to become a trainer less than an hour earlier, Dot has proven she has some skill in battle by taking on not one but two enemy Pokémon at once.
It makes sense that the Dot would have a lot of knowledge that a trainer should have; After all, her internet streaming as Nidothing is mostly focused on tips for trainers. From what fans have seen so far, this advice is solid enough that viewers can apply it to playing video games as well as characters can apply to their lives. It seems that Dot’s unwillingness to become a full-fledged trainer has more to do with her worries about the world than her lack of interest in Pokémon, so this is a big step forward for the last girl. Overcome his fear and capture Quaxly.
Pokémon Horizons has three main characters, each with a Paldean initiator
With Dot now officially in possession of Quaxly, the three young heroes all have one of Paldean’s starter Pokémon, making for a solid combination when working together. Dot still has important functions to perform on board, such as tracking Riko’s grandmother as they reach the Galar region, but at least now she’s equipped to go on adventures with Riko and Roy , which will inevitably lead to the growing trio. closer. Pokémon Horizon‘ the three main characters are now ready to hit the road and face adventure with the first Pokémon by their side.
