Dintel is Silent's Sandshrew♂, a specime caught during Silent's initial trip to Hoenn right after PEFE became a thing. He is a somewhat childish and dispreoccupied mon who goes around life essentially advertising the advantages of living happily. He has a sister still living near Mirage Tower.

Dintel, like Sol, has an habit of frequently disappearing without trace, though it tends to turn out he was just offscreen or having his own little adventures. He also has an imaginary friend Trapinch.


During the team's adventures previous to the Kalos Arc, Dintel stays at PEFE HQ, and in one of the desert habitats he finds a sunken pyramid under the sand, which seems to be inhabited by Creepers. Whether he managed to extract the treasure from the pyramid's chamber or what treasure might it be is still unknown.

By the Hoenn-2 Arc, Dintel accompanies Silent's team to Hoenn and they arrive to Slateport, where the Sandshrew meets up with some of Maggie's Pokémon on their way to the Pokécenter.

Battle Technique

While Dintel is a mon who does not think much strategically, he is pretty much a living spanner in the works and can try any unorthodox tactic that comes to his mind in the pursue of whatever he wants.

Dintel has the following D-group IQ Skills:

  • Nontraitor -- when confused, instead of hurting himself, he'll go give his opponent a hug (yes, don't ask).

Tactical Variants

  • Lil'stars Swift ~Arc Spread~ : Very much like in the vein of Origins!Mewtwo's Swift, he can materialize the lil'stars around his body instead of having to shoot them, meaning he can potentially use them as a cover or aim them towards his enemies at nontrivial angles.
  • Brick Break ~Shield~ : Can focus the pressure of his Brick Break to lift rubble or pieces of the object to be shattered to use as a shield against incoming projectiles. This is slow (could be considered a Prio-1 attack).
  • Strength ~Grab-and-kick~ : Dintel has good strength to put behind the move. He can grab an opponent small enough and kick him away à-la-Mario and his koopa shells.

  • Cared for Python's egg.
  • [ AU only] Unknowingly raised a rebellion in Hoenn against Lelouch's invasion.
  • Found a Desert Temple in one of PEFE HQ's desert-biome modules. Might or might not have found emeralds in chests, or some sort of artifact.

In the Suocéverse

The original Dintel[㏜] is one of the various Gym Leader Pokémon in Suocé's Ground-Type Gym, working there under the gym leader called Nicena. His personality is for the most part similar to that of the RP and his background is similar, having hailed from Mirage Tower. He is slated to appear in Stars of Suocé.

In this continuity, Dintel is not related to the incarnation of Silent or any of the other Pokémon of the team.
