- "We Psychics don't give up even when we're down to the last Pokémon. That's what makes us so formidable!"
- — Will, Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver
Will is the first of the Elite Four in Johto and he is a Psychic-type trainer.
In the games
Will is the weakest Elite Four member featured in the series as a whole, in terms of level and proportionally, as normally the difference between the level of the last Gym Leader's main Pokémon and the first Pokémon of the Johto Elite Four is usually 5-10 levels, but in fact, his Pokémon are almost the same level as that of Clair. Still all his Pokémon have the Psychic move at a level they would normally not, and given that his Pokémon have a high Special Attack, he can be a serious threat if underestimated. However his Pokémon are of weak defenses.
