is a Trainer who travels around to "master Mega Evolution and stand on the top as the strongest". Although he studied Mega Evolution with Professor Sycamore
once and was the professor's assistant, the two parted way.
While traveling through a forest in Kalos region, he encountered Astrid
in a 1-on-1 Mega Evolution battle and after a fierce battle he ended up winning the fight. Watching the battle was Mairin
who quickly became attached to Alain
as she had some questions for him to answer and soon after became his 'traveling companion'.
Nurse Joy (Kalos)
of the Kalos Region Elite Four had a restaurant nearby, so Alain
went to challenge him. When Siebold
, Alan told him that he wanted to try Zumi's unofficial menu. The two battled in a 1-on-1 Mega Evolution battle and despite the type disadvantage, Alain
held his own for most of the battle until he finally lost. Siebold
was impressed with Alain
as he was powerful enough to corner him even with a type disadvantage. He complemented him on an excellent battle as it had been a while since he "last had fresh meat with a backbone".
