Name: Kyle Haden
Age: Technically 14 ½ but always claims he is 15.
Dorm: Entei Dorm.
His most distinguishing feature is his large over-ear headphones, which he always wears. He has dark brown hair that is long enough to cover his eyes and lightly tanned skin. Kyle suffers from heterochromia iridum (different colored eyes). His right eye is purple while his left eye is neon blue. He is currently 5’11 and weighs 160 pounds, so kind of tall for his age. Typically wears a black and white long-sleeved plaid button-up shirt that’s open exposing his purple undershirt. He also prefers to wear loose jeans held up with a black leather belt. He wears basic black and white canvas shoes.
Kyle is known for his innovation in Pokemon battles. He tries his best at developing unconventional strategies and using each Pokemon’s abilities to their fullest. Kyle is infamous for only studying subjects he is interested with, which is contradictory to his ambitions of being a gym leader. He understands that he needs to study every possible subject involving Pokemon to achieve his dream. Since he is always listening to music on his headphones he has developed an excellent ability to read lips. Usually Kyle is rather calm but if he feels that someone is wrong about a subject he tends to get very excitable and will often rash accusations that the person has no idea what they’re talking about. He often regrets these moments of excitability and will often apologize to the person he talks bad to, unless the person continues the argument with him at which point he will demand a battle to resolve the situation. Kyle prefers places that are either haunted or somewhere that he can learn about new Pokemon.
Kyle’s family has a deep history with being gym leaders or working for gym leaders. His mother was a trainer for Sabrina and his grandfather was the previous Ecruteak City gym leader. He received an abra from his mother and a ghastly from his grandfather when he was 7.
His grandfather is good friends with Agatha of the Kanto Elite Four and asked her to let Kyle study under her for a few years. This occurred when Kyle was 10. While training under Agatha both his abra and ghastly evolved. Agatha taught him about double battles and he was hooked. He invested the majority of his time afterwards learning about double battle concepts and strategies. After his initial studies were over he agreed to stay during the summers to diversify his abilities.
Once he was 12 he set out on a learning expedition in the Hoenn region. He had heard of the interesting types of Pokemon found in the region and decided that it would further develop his knowledge. He travelled across the land learning about the various Pokemon he had never seen and how they matched up against his Kadabra and Haunter. While travelling in Mossdeep City he met the twin gym leaders Tate and Liza. They discussed double battle concepts with Kyle and pointed him to a good place to capture psychic Pokemon. While in this undisclosed area he caught an unusual Pokemon known as Beldum. While making his way back to home he met Steven. Steven noticed he had a Beldum and showed Kyle his Metagross. Shortly after this event Kyle returned to his hometown of Lavender Town.
Ever since he was 9 he has been trained to be a gym leader. Currently he is split between choosing ghost type or psychic type Pokemon to be his specialty. His plan is to become the first gym leader in Lavender Town, and he also wishes to make the gym feature double battles. Originally Kyle did not want to go to the Pokemon Trainer Academy. Instead he wanted to continue his journey throughout other regions, such as Sinnoh and Unova. He eventually changed his mind due to his mother’s insistence.
