Pianissimo Morendo, or Pianis for short, is the oldest of the Morendo siblings. Like his brother Forte and his two sisters, he specializes in training a particular type of Pokémon; in his case, Ice types. While he is from Unova, he has also spent a lot of time in Sinnoh tracking down unique Ice type Pokémon. He has also spent a few years working as a gym trainer in the Snowpoint City gym.
Pianis wears cold weather gear wherever he goes, since he has a team that can create instant snowstorms. He has a variety of winter coats, hats, scarves, and the like. His hair is the longest out of the entire Morendo family's, and often covers one of his eyes.
Pianis is generally laid-back and aloof, and tends to stay calm in most situations. He believes in being prepared for anything, and as such carries around a lot of gear (particularly winter gear). One thing that will cause him to lose his cool is mentioning that his name sounds vaguely like "penis", which will likely get the offender frozen to a wall.
As of Kalos, Pianis and Amanita are now a couple.
Pianis is friends with Candice, due to having worked in her gym for a while.
Pianis and Jenna used to be in a romantic relationship, but have broken up.
