|Real name||Scarlett Montgomery|
|Nicknames||Scar (By Bailey)|
|Appearances||Journey Through the Regions|
Scarlett Montgomery is a 13-year-old Pokémon Trainer from Lumiose City of the Kalos Region. She is one of the protagonists in the Journey Through the Regions series.
She is the daughter of Dallas Montgomery and Ailey Walker Montgomery, a Pokémon Professor, younger sister of Caleb Montgomery, niece of Bradley and Corrine Jennings, and cousin of Gabriel and Carter Jennings. Her best friend and traveling partner is Bailey Ketchum, the daughter of Ash and Serena Ketchum.
Scarlett inherited all of her physical features from her father, Dallas. Scarlett has long black hair that is normally held up in a ponytail with a hair clip, amber eyes, and an average skin ton. She has three piercings in both her ears.
Her main outfit consists of a dark red and black plaid jacket over a black, elbow-length shirt, dark blue jeans and brown calf-length boots. She also wears a brown belt around her waist to hold her Pokéballs and a silver locket around her neck with a picture of her with her parents and Caleb. She also wears a pair of fingerless black gloves. She keeps her Poképhone either clipped to her belt in a case or in her backpack.
Scarlett is a friendly, and nice young trainer with a love for Pokémon. She doesn't really like making her friends but puts up with it for Bailey, who loves making new friends. Scarlett is very close to both her father and brother since they raised her after her mother's disappearance. She is closer to Caleb due to him being at home more than her father was before he took time off from the police force and did something closer to home.
She is calm, kind, and patient when dealing with Pokémon who might have a problem with humans. She hates seeing any Pokémon in pain and especially hates to see one being treated poorly. She praises her Pokémon when they do an excellent job and helps them train to get stronger. She hates Pokémon Hunters or anyone who wants to harm Pokémon with no good reason.
While she has a good and friendly personality, Scarlett can sometimes be very blunt, especially with a Trainer who thinks they think they know what they're doing when they really don't.
- Battling: Despite being a new trainer, Scarlett is highly skilled in battles having watched her brother.
- Strategic planning: Between Scarlett and Bailey, Scarlett is the most creative and skilled in coming up with complex battle strategies ahead of time or even on the spot.
- Pokéballs: Scarlett possesses several Pokéballs with which she can capture wild Pokémon.
- Pokédex: Scarlett possesses the Kalos region Pokédex.
Prior to the series
Scarlett was born and raised in Lumiose City of the Kalos Region to Dallas Montgomery and Ailey Walker-Montgomery and the younger sister of Caleb Montgomery (who is three years older). When she was just three, her mother, who was visiting Sinnoh while studying temples of Dialga and Palkia and of the Lake Guardians, Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf, went missing leaving no trace. Shortly after, her father returned to the Police force to use his knowledge to try to find her mother, he was often leaving the house long periods of time leaving her with her best friend, Bailey Ketchum, as Caleb would be with his own ragtag team of friends.
Growing up, she did knock heads with Morgrim McDonald who would make fun of Scarlett because of her mother not being around and just bully her. Thankfully, Scarlett had Bailey to help out.
Scarlett makes her debut in Kalos 1: Starting Journey! where she wakes up noticing that the house was too quiet for her liking (she was shocked that she even woke up since Eevee would often have to wake her up with a Tackle Attack).
This listing is of the badges Scarlett has obtained in the Kalos region:
- Scarlett's Poképhone is red with a keychain that has a little Arcanine on it, in memory of her mother, who she sadly does not remember much of.
- Scarlett's hairstyle was inspired by Zephyros-Phoenix's Voltron: Legendary Defender OC Antania Marco.
