With the release of Pokemon GO here in South East Asia, many people are rekindling their love of Pokemon. We continue our look at the popular franchise, and this time, we ask the question of “What if Characters from other Anime were members of Pokemon’s Elite 4?”

Previously, we asked the question of “What if anime characters were Pokemon Gym Leaders?” This time, we chose FOUR anime characters for the Elite 4, and one more for the Pokemon Champion. So, who are our picks?

Kitaro (GeGeGe no Kitaro) Ghost types
Pokemon: Chandelure, Drifblim, Trevenant, Banette (Mega), Gengar (Mega)


True to his name, Spooky Kitaro’s line-up is filled with all sorts of spooky Pokemon, which he tops off with a Banette and a Gengar, both of which can achieve Mega Evolution.

Kenshiro (Fist of the North Star) Fighting types
Pokemon: Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, Hitmontop, Machamp, Pangoro


Like their trainer, Kenshiro’s Pokemon excel at pounding their opponents with a flurry of intense strikes, be it kicks or puches. Hey, they may also be even powerful enough to destroy TANKS with just their strikes! Watatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatata!!!!!

Char Aznable (Gundam) Only uses RED Pokemon
Pokemon: Octillery, Scizor (Mega), Gyarados (Shiny, evolved from a GOLDEN Magikarp), Magmortar, Tyrantrum


They don’t call him the “Red Comet” for nothing, as he uses RED-colored Pokemon because he thinks that they are 3x faster than ordinary Pokemon. He previously had a gold-colored Magikarp, but he was happy that it evolved into such a powerful RED-colored Gyarados.

Mavis Vermillion (Fairy Tail) Fairy types
Pokemon: Wigglytuff, Clefable, Sylveon, Gardevoir (Mega), Togekiss


Ahhhhhhhh Mavis, not only is she the founder of Fairy Tail, but she is also the LEADER of the Elite 4. Her Pokemon might look CUTE at first, but trust us, you don’t want to mess with this master strategist, as she will be using her brain against more powerful opponents. She ain’t called the Fairy Strategist for nothing!

CHAMPION: Haruhi Suzumiya

Pokemon: Unown H, Celebi (Mega), Deoxys, Mew, Regigagas, Arceus


The Pokemon Champion is Haruhi, and she really loves things that aren’t “normal”, though she keeps a Normal-type Regigigas which she has nicknamed “Kyon.” She likes the unkown, and even keeps an Unown herself. She has a time-travelling Celebi named “Mikuru”, as well as an alien-like Deoxys which she has nicknamed “Nagato”. She also has an “esper” (Mew) named “Koizumi”, as well as Arceus, who she doesn’t know created the entire universe… or does she?!

So, what do you guys think of our picks for the Elite 4 and Champion? You can also check out our picks for “What if anime characters were Pokemon Gym Leaders?
