Maxie was born in Fallarbor Town. He came from a family of farmers with very little money, and didn’t achieve wealth or status until his adulthood. (alchan)

Unova sets an older age limit to allow children to go out travelling on a Pokemon journey. Kanto and Johto continue to allow children to travel at the age of ten. Sinnoh and Hoenn do not have a specific age limit, but prefer trainers at the age of thirteen to go on a journey. This leave Unova with the age being fifteen or sixteen, leading them to have the ‘latest’ trainers on a journey. Younger children are allowed to have Pokemon in Unova, but cannot leave home until they are older. (smilinglifedancer)

Manectric and Luxray are rivals. Volkner chose to use a Luxray because he wanted to rebel against his old master Wattson. (fandomconnection)

Looker is actually the player’s father in Platinum, and he visits Twinleaf whenever his job allows him. (thepurplerainbowcat)

Silver acts as if he doesn’t care about Gold, but deep down, he thinks about Gold like he’s his little brother. (anon)

Each stat trainer in Platinum has a favorite food he or she is particularly good at making. Cheryl’s is breakfast cereal, Mira’s is millet porridge, Riley’s is rye bread, Marley’s is barley soup, and Buck’s is soba noodles and buckwheat pancakes. (alchan)

Bill and Amanita are related. (anon)

Bill is actually the same age as the protagonists during the Kanto games, making him three years older than the protagonists in the Johto games. But unlike most trainers his age, he is more absorbed in inventions and technology (such as the PC boxes) rather than battles and winning badges. (anon)

Riley is Steven Stone’s nephew. (anon)

B-2’s mother is a loud, overbearing sort who thinks he’s in a performance group and does alterations to his “spaceman outfit” and tells him to find a real job. (blackjackgabbiani)
