Nando is a rather unique trainer in that he is battling in both contests and gyms with the hope of being in both the Pokémon League and the Grand Festivals in Sinnoh. He is a competent trainer and also enjoys to play on his harp, which is shaped like a Mew. Due to his taking up of both vocations, he is a rival to both Ash & Dawn. His biggest rival is Zoey.


Nando's choice in Pokémon tends to revolve around their musical abilities to fit his musical battle style. His Pokémon exhibit both beauty and grace. As well as their abilty to sing. However some of his Pokémon are used to dance (e.g his Lopunny).

It was revealed Roselia won Nando his first Gym badge at Eterna City. It was seen being used in the second battle stage of the Grand Festival where it won against Zoey with a powerful petal dance. It had revealed to have evolved into a Roserade at the Grand Festival where it was used alongside Sunflora and Altaria showing off its musical talents. Its full battling skills where shown at the Lily of the Valley Island where it faced off against Ash. It used powerful attacks like Solarbeam and Magical Leaf and even stopped Ash's attacks with Sweet Scent. However it lost against Ash's Staraptor's Brave Bird. It along with Kricketune are his most used Pokémon.
