Trivia: Jessie and James' Japanese names, Musashi and Kojirō, are a reference to two actual samurais, Musashi Miyamoto and Sasaki Kojirō.

Trivia: During the Pokérap that appears after some episodes, nearly all of the Pokémon shown are the actual creatures, but Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Rhydon, Zapdos, and Kabutops that are shown are machines from Pokémon Island. Also, when Kabuto is shown, it isn't actually a Kabuto but Bill in Kabuto's costume.

Question: This is a question for the XYZ series. I can't figure out if Alain is a good guy or a bad guy. He acts like he is good but I am not so sure if he really is. Can anyone tell me if he is good or bad?

Answer: He is a good guy but just found himself in a bad situation when he worked for Lysander. He didn't want him to harm Ash and his Pokémon when he was trying to get the special bond between Ash and his Greninja to work. He does leave Lysander and go back to being a good person.
