Bishop is a male Scizor, and a member of Herbert's team.
Age: Unknown, presumably under 10
Met: The Under, Orre (Scyther)
Favorite Move: X-Scissor
Likes: Good trainers, non-violence
Dislikes: Shadow Pokemon, disloyalty
Bishop has the appearance of a standard male Scizor.
Bishop is usually very calm and collected, and follows his trainer's orders dutifully and without question. He is unshakably loyal to Herbert, though this has led to some conflict when Herbert's orders are dangerous or ill-advised. Due to his unfamiliarity with social situations, he often speaks in a rather formal and overly dramatic tone, often accidentally making things awkward for himself and others.
Abilities In Battle
As a Scyther, Bishop is forced to rely on his evasiveness in combat, since he is ill-adapted to taking hits. He remains almost constantly on the move, staying airborne wherever possible.
|Return||TM||★★★★★||–||Due to Bishop's high friendship, his Return has a high Base Power.|

Bishop grew up as a child in an unknown region, before he was captured by Pokemon smugglers and taken to Orre. There he was sold to Cipher, who proceeded to turn him into a Shadow Pokemon. To test his abilities, Cipher set him on the smugglers who brought him in, and he tore them apart with gutso. Bishop says he remembers little of his time spent as a Shadow Pokemon or what came before it.
At around the time Herbert was fourteen, Bishop was transferred to a Cipher lab in order to be sold, and at that time Herbert and Alice were attempting to infiltrate the lab in search of Deimos. Bishop attacked Herbert, stabbing the boy viciously and almost killing Kirk before Herbert was able to catch him in a Luxury ball. Herbert decided to keep him and purify him, and Bishop developed a strong loyalty to Herbert as a result. He has since followed the boy to Unova as his Pokemon.
Bishop is fiercely loyal to Herbert, due to being rescued from Cipher and purified by him. However, his tendency to follow the letter of Herbert's orders often leads to problems. Since accidentally wounding Herbert during a sparring session, he has since focused more on maintaining his trainer's wellbeing than following his orders.
Bishop is strong friends with Kirk, despite their hostile first meeting, though his introverted nature means that he does not often interact with the other members of the team. He tolerates Maul, often chastises Ripley for her mischievous antics, and often ends up babysitting Wrex.
Bishop also has a crush on Seth, which emerged since their first meeting. Seth figured it out after a while, and let Bishop down as gently as he could, prior to the two having a friendly battle. Bishop's feelings still persist, though he has realised the impossibility of a relationship and tries to avoid making Seth feel awkward.
