Hugh is the main character's rival in Pokémon Black and White Versions 2. Both reside in Aspertia City. Hugh is the rival who picks the starter Pokémon with the type advantage to the player's chosen Pokémon.


Hugh has dark blue spiky hair that goes upwards, which some Team Plasma members like to make fun of for looking like a Quilfish. He wears a white/red training suit and black gloves. He also wears a dark blue riding pants that match his hair and wearing red shoes with black laces or Velcro.


Hugh is very fond of his Pokémon and his sister. He loves them deeply and feels they should be treasured always. Hugh seems to be impatient, a characteristic most rivals share. He's also quite loud spoken and speaks his mind wildly when his emotions get the best of him, such as berating the owner of a Herdier for showing apparent indifference in his eyes, which was not the case, or when he was angry at Cheren's reply, which he found "weak coming from a Gym Leader," when he challenged Cheren to a duel.

Due to a rather harsh experience on his childhood in which Team Plasma robbed the Purrloin that his sister was given as a gift, he seeks to become strong by any means possible so that he can fight Team Plasma whom he deeply hates, and search for the lost Purrloin. His hatred for Team Plasma is great enough to bear animosity towards former, reformatted Team Plasma members, although this changes along the game.

Hugh is able to be named anything the player wants his name to be.
