Physical Description

Specialized Equipment

Enoras' main partners are his beloved Xatu and Noctowl - his 2nd and 3rd most favorite beings on the planet, in no particular order. Additionally, he owns a Noibat, Staraptor, and a Pelipper. His fighting style is to put Pokémon to Sleep and switch his Pokémon frequently to cover his Pokémons' weaknesses - having made first-hand experience with the weaknesses of the flying type over decades.

Mental characteristics

Personal history

Enoras was born in Olivine City in the Johto Region. He started his career as a bird catcher when he got 12 years old. He was a professional flying type trainer from the beginning. Soon, he realized that it was not a viable option to challenge the Johto League with such a specialized team of Pokémon. Then he heard about Pokémon Contests becoming popular in Hoenn, and moved there.

Since Enoras brought his partners, Xatu and Noctowl, to the contests, he quickly became famous: Both of these Pokémon are not native to Hoenn. He held the number one spot in the Intelligence competition for two decades, with few interruptions, before meeting Jihye...

I was on his holiday trip to the Lesho Region, when he first arrived in Crossington. Since he was already there, and the Crossington gym leader was known for using flying type Pokémon as well, he tried to give it a shot. He expected to get absolutely crushed in battle. What he did not expect, though, was to not be able to focus.
Jihye had caught his eye, and by the time the battle was over - Enoras being beaten as expected - he started coming to the gym every day, in order to train his Pokémon and become as strong as Jihye, in order to not blame himself. He got stuck in Lesho, unwilling to return to Hoenn ever again, and giving up his spot as the master of Pokémon Competition.

It took Enoras two years before he finally managed to beat Jihye and dared to have a casual conversation with her. And it was that day, when he learned that she had felt the same all along.

Jihye and Enoras have been married for 18 years now, and have given the gym leader position to each other multiple times throughout that time, each of them always ready to take back over if the burnout threatens to rise.

I like his personal history, especially the part where you said that he got some additional fame thanks to his Pokemon being exotic. I don't really know a lot about the Pokemon, but does he have other strategies if the sleep-and-hit one won't work on an enemy? And is there a reason why he started loving flying types?

The preferred strategy of a good trainer is alway only that - a preference. He can still just go for a "normal" style of just using the strongest move and hoping it's enough. Sleep is just the "special" thing about his battle style.

About the reason why he loves flying types: His mother gave him a Hoothoot as his first partner to start his journey with, and he soon found a Natu that became Hoothoot's partner. They later evolved into Noctowl and Xatu, and stayed his partners his entire life.
