Fortis found and caught Mercury while he was delivering a message from the Abundant Shrine Murkrow murders to the Castelia murders. However, he was not named there. After Fortis arrived in Sinnoh, she decided to greet Mezzo by sending her a letter with him, and Mezzo recommended the name Mercury as she had already met and named him in the AU.
- In the AU, informed Artemis about Napoleon's rebellion.
- In the AU, continued flying, delivering information, and spying on Napoleon after his wing was burned by Cerberus' flames.
- Was on the team that won Fortis' Johto League Challenge, and the only member on it to not be fully evolved by the end.
Mercury is still getting acquainted with the other Pokémon on Fortis' team and has not formed any relationships yet.
In the AU
Mercury was a messenger for the Black Guard, only known as "the Messenger Murkrow". He delivered information about Napoleon's rebellion to Artemis and Scolipede, but they did not act to prevent the rebellion in time. After Felis became a double agent, Mercury worked for him by tracking the movements of Napoleon's army. After Scolipede and Artemis' regime fell, Mercury got his name and became a member of Mezzo's team.
- Mercury was first introduced in the Alternate Timeline Arc, long before Fortis herself was.
