Diesel tends towards the down-to-earth, and is frequently the one to snap Ever or Breeze out of their stranger moments. However, he's also utterly obsessed with music, to the point of exerting a borderline dictatorial influence over Ever's choice in captures. He's also quite literal-minded, taking most statements at face value.
Abilities In Battle
As a Kricketune, Diesel doesn't have much by way of movepool. However, what he does have he makes good use of. A decent range of differently-typed cutting attacks allow him to strike for massive damage on most types, and when all else fails a Sing attack will frequently be used to put the opponent in a more agreeable state.
- Sing, Slash, False Swipe, Perish Song, Giga Impact
- X-Scissor, Silver Wind, Bug Buzz, Fury Cutter
- Night Slash
- Aerial Ace
- Brick Break
|Sing||Natural||★★★★★||–||Diesel doesn't use this move in battle much, but is adept in its use in other scenarios.|
|X-Scissor||Natural||★★★★||–||Used as go-to physical attack.|
|Silver Wind||TM||★★★||–||While not Diesel's most powerful attack, it is very useful for quick self-buffing.|
|Bug Buzz||Natural||★★||–||Diesel hates this move since it sounds awful, but uses it sometimes when a more powerful ranged move than Silver Wind is necessary.|
|Giga Impact||TM||★||–||While powerful, Diesel uses this move exclusively as a finisher.|
|The list above may not be exhaustive. ID=Diesel|
Diesel was caught on Route 202, when Ever stopped to eat lunch and Diesel stole it. After this, when Ever attempted to continue towards Rowan's Lab to get a starter, Diesel blocked the way and forced Ever to begin his Pokemon journey. This has set the tone for their relationship over the years.
- Caused time itself to freeze due to a prolonged Sing attack.
- Helped quell Nihilist!Tagg once.
- Oneshotted all of Sidney's Pokemon in less than a minute.
- Knocked out 18 Pokemon at once using Perish Song.
Diesel is Ever's starter, and as such Ever never goes anywhere without Diesel.
Diesel and Breeze, as Ever's first two Pokemon, are very good friends.
Diesel idolizes Mezzo's parents, due to their obsession with music.
