Who is Cynthia?
She is the Champion Trainer of the Sinnoh region who makes an appearance in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Despite her beauty and refined appearance, she’s quite easy to talk to. She’s not just limited to the Sinnoh region; she also makes appearances in the Alola and Unova regions.
While she does have a few less-than-stellar qualities, such as her room being a bit of a disaster, she’s a top-class Pokémon trainer. Her well-balanced team includes: Garchomp, an incredibly strong dragon-type; Milotic, known for its endurance; Lucario, an outstandingly balanced attacker; and Spiritomb, who’s only weak against fairy-types.
Cynthia is quite helpful to the protagonist, giving hints and support items. Because of how well-liked she is, there are definitely players who have had to fight tears as they battled her!
She has plenty of fans on pixiv, even before the release of the remakes. There are over 7500 posted illustrations featuring her! We’ve gathered some of the best ones available for this compilation.
