Ilima is a laidback, polite and dignified Trainer. Despite his formal personality, he can be quite cocky at times, but is usually grounded by his fellow volunteers. He is also very passionate about caring for Pokémon, usually treating them with more respect then he often does with humans. He specialises in Normal-type Pokémon. He is a self-confessed bookworm who often clashes with Sophocles and their vastly differing ideas.
