Ricard Nouveau (Japanese: ピノ・ノワール Pinot Noir) is an A-class Connoisseur who debuted in Clash of the Connoisseurs!. He, like Cilan, was called upon by a man for his connoisseur skills. He was tasked with finding an appropriate first partner for Marigold and suggests a Petilil. Cilan disagrees and suggests a Foongus because of the dual typing. Since they disagree, Ricard and Cilan end up having a battle to decide who was correct.

The two battle it out but Ricard's Pokémon is a Purrloin, Cilan's worst fear. Cilan manages to overcome his fear of Purrloin and beats Ricard with an attack combo. Ricard recognizes Cilan's talent and pledges to win a showdown the next time they meet.
