プラチナ・ベルリッツ Platinum Berlitz
Platinum Berlitz is the heiress to a wealthy family in Sinnoh and is affiliated with Uxie, the Being of Knowledge. Her father is one of Professor Rowan's most trusted assistants, and her mother is also a Pokémon researcher. The Berlitz family has a tradition of bringing metal to the summit of Mt. Coronet to make the family crest.
HistoryTurtwig and Chimchar, along with pokédexes, from Professor Rowan.
Platinum buys a villa in the Resort Area. She senses an oncoming attack and sends out Lopunny to strike first first, but is briefly confused when she realizes her so-called enemy was merely a rock; however, a moment later, Looker stepped out of the rock and initiated their password, causing Platinum to realize that he is her partner. After the previous mess-up in the DP Arc, Platinum has to make absolutely sure: she point-blank asks him if he is a policeman, if he is not actually supposed to be getting a free bicycle ride in Sangem Park, if he isn't really a comedian. When Looker confirms he is who she thinks he is, Platinum can't help but excitedly tell her Pokémon that this time they did it correctly!
She and Looker are on the Battle Frontier in order to question the Frontier Brains, whom Looker believes could know something about the Distortion World or Team Galactic. As they are deciding which facility to challenge first, a mechanical Starly guide comes up to them, offering to tell them the rules. Platinum informs it that she has already memorized the rules, which impresses Looker greatly.
Looker's reaction catches the attention of Caitlin, who is passing by. The misunderstanding results in Caitlin's Gallade, believing Looker to be a threat to Caitlin, cutting off Looker's clothes. Platinum and Looker decide to challenge the Battle Castle first.
Platinum proceeds in the rounds but is surprised when she finds out that items are restricted to what you can "buy" with Castle Points (CP), which you earn by winning battles. Platinum, who has grown up in the lap of luxury, has never had to worry about managing her finances; this realization causes Looker to drag Platinum aside and chew her out about her lack of management skills. Platinum becomes depressed and politely requests that he treat her more sensitively.
While Looker cools off, Platinum battles through the rounds all the way to the Frontier Brain battle—against Darach, not Caitlin, to her surprise.
Platinum wins because she successfully managed her finances, allowing her to know all about Darach beforehand and have a useful item. She receives a commemorative print for her win, and Looker gives her a VS Recorder to keep it on.
Platinum and Looker learn more from Buck and that night they discuss it, reflecting that they still have nothing on the Distortion World.
The next morning, Platinum is lured from her villa by the song of a Battle Arcade clown, following him around just to listen to him. After Looker finds her, they enter the Battle Arcade together.
Platinum is a well mannered and elegant member of the House of Berlitz. She is often described as a princess and because of her heritage she starts off as rather aloof and refuses to tell her name to "commoners." By the Platinum Arc, however, she has made an effort to be less so, even biting back on impulse and telling Buck her name.
Platinum is very knowledgeable from reading as she quoted "ten books a day". Because of this she is associated with Uxie. Though she is knowledgeable, since the beginning of her journey she's decided that it's better to experiences things rather that just read about them. For that reason Platinum has taken on Gym battles, Super Contest, Battle Frontier and other types of challenges.
