The following is a list of official Pokémon characters who have had minimal impact and use within Rise of the Rocket's story. Gym Leaders and Elite Four members should have their information added to their respective sections on the Gym Leader and Elite Four pages.
Kanto Characters Edit
Ash Ketchum Edit
Ash Ketchum was a famous trainer from Pallet Town, one known for owning a significant number of Pokémon and participating in almost a dozen different Pokémon League Challenges. Because of his past conflicts with Team Rocket, Ash was forced to flee and go into hiding during their takeover, acting where he could against the organization. At some point before Team Rocket's takeover, Ash married Kanto Gym Leader Misty, and the two later produced a son, Darren Ketchum, whom they left in the care of a relative as they attempted to fight back against Team Rocket.
Sometime prior to Misty's recruitment to Team Liberty, Ash was spotted near the Indigo Plateau, and this information prompted Darren and Misty to go searching for him. However, all three were captured by rogue Rocket Executive Tobias Elton, who subjected Ash to horrific and physically scarring experiments in an ultimately successful attempt to mind control him. Having tracked the Ketchum family and discovering this, freelancer Jackson Sang was forced to kill Ash both to protect himself and to protect Ash's remaining family, in the process putting an end to Elton's life.
Ash possessed a large number of unique and powerful Pokémon, including his signature Pikachu. These are presumed to be in Misty Ketchum and Darren Ketchum's care following his death.

Riley is a famous trainer and Aura user possessing ownership of Iron Island. At some point during Team Rocket's rise to power and their subsequent endeavors to recruit Aura wielders, Riley went into hiding on Iron Island. He was later tracked down by Jayron Aaron, an Aura-wielding member of Team Liberty, who managed to convince Riley to join Team Liberty after a brief encounter with Riley's Lucario. During this exchange, Riley offered information on his father and passed on to Jayron a pair of gloves that had originally belonged to the legendary Sir Aaron. Riley also led Jayron to a Deoxys, which they recruited for Team Liberty. Riley was later recruited by Liberty Agent Roy Turnbull in order to participate in an expedition to rid Iron Island of Team Rocket's presence. Following the full takeover of Sinnoh by the Ancients, this mission was called off.
