Pearl grew up in Twinleaf Town with Diamond. As the son of Palmer, the Frontier Brain of the Battle Tower, grew up learning how to battle. However, due to his many responsibilities, he is not usually home.
Pearl is a very hasty, impatient person.
"Even though he parted with his father, Tower Tycoon Palmer, when he was young, Pearl inherited some of Palmer's personality, especially leadership, which he showed from the start of the journey. Furthermore, Pearl became more powerful after training under Crasher Wake! Pearl mainly uses fast Pokémon to get the first hit and mess with his opponent. He's been the straight man of the comedy duo ever since he met Dia in kindergarten."
Pearl and Diamond are good friends, even if Pearl is perpetually frustrated by Diamond's lethargy, eating habits, sleeping habits, and puns. They first met and befriended each other in kindergarten.
- All of Pearl's Pokémon are male
- This makes sense because their nicknames' suffix, -hiko, is attributed to boys
- As of Chapter 436, Pearl is 12 years old
- Pearl knows the move of a Pokemon just by its stance
