Chad Stone (Japanese: 智耶努'・'ダイゴ Chad Tsuwabuki) is a main character who appears in the Pokémon Emerald Adventures! series. He is Zero's main rival and owns a Torchic.


Chad first appears in A Friend or Rival?! where he encounters Zero during his visit in Litteroot Town. When the Poochyena attack Prof. Birch, he teams up with Zero and sends his Torchic to help. Together, they manage to defeat the three and save the professor. Chad then sees Zero as a strong trainer but rather has him as a rival than a friend, so the two start their seperate journeys.

Chad reappears in Lombre Luxury! where he reveals that he is the nephew of Steven Stone, the former Champion of the Hoenn League. He also tells him that the Gym Leader uses Rock-types and reveals that he had already earned the Stone Badge, confirmed that he had defeated her and leaves.


Chad is a calm and serious Pokemon Trainer who has a bitter and stubborn attitude.
