Pokémon AU is an Alternate Universe where character from Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons are portrayed as Pokémon Trainers from the hit franchise Pokémon.

About the AUEdit

In this world, creatures known as Pokémon roam the world in harmony with human beings. When a human reaches age 10 (Anime-universe), they are given a starter Pokémon by their local Professor and set off in the world, catching other Pokémon in devices called Poké-balls. They train the Pokémon, befriend them, use them to battle, and strive to become "Pokémon Masters". Pokémon Trainers can also strive to other ventures, including Gym LeadersPokémon BreedersPokémon Coordinators, etc.

Because of the radically different nature of the world, the characters, setting, technology, etc., these incarnations of the characters are significantly different from their original counterparts. Most commonly, this AU takes place in modern times.

When fans infuse the four and other characters with Pokémon, to make them Gijinka - half human and half Pokémon like people - can make this AU an alternative to Hybrid AU.

The Big FourEdit

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock IIIEdit

Hiccup is a Pokémon Trainer that normally specializes in Dragon-type Pokémon. Because Dragon-types are naturally powerful and one of the least common types, Hiccup being able to catch one, let alone train one is an impressive feat to behold.

What Pokémon Toothless is often differs from story to story. The most common Pokémon used is Dragonite, (shiny or mega) Charizard and Noivern. One of the more unorthodox decisions amongst fans places Toothless as an Umbreon, a non-dragon Pokemon.

Jack FrostEdit

Jack is as a Pokémon Trainer that normally specializes in Ice-type Pokémon. His partner isn't any particular Pokémon, although he is most often seen with an Glaceon.

Merida DunBrochEdit

Merida is often portrayed as a Trainer that either specializes in Fire-Types or with no specific type at all. She is most commonly seen with an Ursaring (representing her mother as a bear) and a group of Teddiursas (her three brothers). Whether she actually caught these bear-like pokémon or if they are wild pokémon she has a bond with differs from story to story.

Her horse, Angus is commonly portrayed as the Fire-type horse pokémon Ponyta, or its evolved form Rapidash.

Rapunzel CoronaEdit

Rapunzel's specialty Type is often disputed. Some authors have her specialize in Electric-Types, while others have her with Fairy-Types.

Her best friend Pascal is commonly portrayed as a Kecleon, which is a Normal-type Pokémon. While her horse friend Maximus is portrayed as a Rapidash, a Fire-type. She can also be partnered up with a Yellow Flabebe/Floette/Florges, in homage to the Golden Flower.

Extra CharactersEdit

Queen ElsaEdit

Elsa is mostly seen as a Pokémon Trainer or Gym Leader that specializes in Ice-types. Her partner isn't any particular Pokémon, although she is most often seen with an Glaceon (while Anna is partnered up with a Leafeon), Froslass, Abomasnow and Articuno. Elsa and her sister's snowman friend Olaf is commonly portrayed as a Snover, that is a friend to both of the sisters; as it is both an ice and grass-type.

Princess AnnaEdit

Since Anna is the warm, summer version of the older sister, she is seen as a Pokémon Trainer or Gym Leader that specializes in Grass-types. Her partner isn't any particular Pokémon, although she is most often seen with an Leafeon (while Elsa is partnered up with a Glaceon) and one of the two Deer Pokémon, Stantler and (spring or summer) Deerling (or its evolved form Sawsbuck). Anna and her sister's snowman friend Olaf is commonly portrayed as a Snover, that is a friend to both of the sisters; as it is both an grass and ice-type.

Vanellope von SchweetzEdit

Because of Vanellope's sugary kingdom, she is seen as a trainer that specializes in Fairy-types, or partnered up with Pokémon that are based on "sugary" food, like Vanillite/Vanillish/Vanilluxe and Swirlix/Slurpuff.

Professor BombaEdit

Since Radcliffe Bomba is already a professor and spend a lot of time in his work, it can easily make and portray him as a local Pokémon Professor that gives trainers their starters and look after other trainers Pokémon. His house can serve as his lab, while Ozzi is portrayed as a dog-like Pokémon - like Growlithe, Poochyena, Lillipup, Rockruff or any of the others and their evolved forms - and his daughter as his assistant, before she leaves on her own journey and gets her starter from him (which might likely be a Grass-Type).

He can also be a professor that is studying the Pokémon that live in the forest next to his house, along with a Pokémon and the Realm that it comes from, that is said to exist in "legend".

Moana WaialikiEdit

Moana is mostly seen as a Pokémon Trainer that specializes in Water-Types (or any of the island themed Pokémon from Sun & Moon, that marches the themes from Moana). Because of the setting in the film, Moana can be a trainer living in the Alola Region (with Motunui as one the Alola islands): a trainer going on the island challenge or being one of the island's Trial Captains. If Moana should encounter the Guardian deities, it would most likely be Tapu Fini (a Water and Fairy type, for her friendship with the Ocean) or Tapu Bulu (a Grass and Fairy type, for the friendship she formed with Te Fiti).

Her friend Pua is commonly portrayed as one of the two pig Pokémon, Spoink or Tepig, while Heihei is the chicken Pokémon Torchic (or it's evolved form Combusken). Along with being commonly partnered up with a Popplio, as her starter and a Mantine, in homage to her grandmother's manta ray tattoo and the form her spirit took.


Maui is a Pokémon Trainer that is partnered with Pokémon that resemble his animal transformations. Like a Sharpedo (shark), Pidgeot/Fearow/Talonflame (eagle), Wailord (wail) and so on. He can also be a Island Kahuna in the Alola region and being a demigod can make him be friends with his island's Guardian Deity or had encountered it.
