It’s the end of another month, so I have another Character Spotlight for everyone. I’ve decided to showcase a character who I recently fell in love with.
Hau is a brand new character to the Pokemon world. He was introduced in Pokemon Sun and Moon, which came out November 18, 2016, by Nintendo for the 3DS. Hau is the grandson of Melemele Island’ Kahuna, Hala. He’s your friend and ally as well as your rival.
He’s energetic, friendly, and pretty optimistic. While the two of you don’t travel together, you meet up quite a lot. He helps you along the way by telling you where to go next, healing your Pokemon, giving you various items, and is overall just supportive encouraging.
As your rival, you obviously battle quite a bit with him. I don’t know how he reacts when you lose to him, but he’s still positive when he loses. Some rivals in past games are sore losers (Barry from Diamond and Pearl kind of was…), but Hau just keeps complimenting you and strives harder.
But that’s the thing about him. He wants to be the strongest trainer, but overall, he just wants to have fun and enjoy the time he has with his Pokemon as well as the journey, sights, and sounds around him.
Honestly, I think everyone should be like Hau.
What do you think of Hau? Let me know in the comments below!
