Drayden then reminesences about when he met Iris the first time and how she was a special trainer on the Village of Dragons when he was looking for a succesor. Iris mentions how different the Village of Dragons is in comparison to Unova and their relationship with Pokemon. Drayden talks about how tough it was to be trainer on his time without Poke Balls. The two go on to talk her experience battle Alder, and what she will do now as the new Champion. Iris claims she will be one that can encourage people with their Pokemon. Drayden gives her, her new outfit.

  • Iris is the only Unova Gym Leader with a second occupation.
  • In Pokemon Black and White, Iris and Drayden's Haxorus were under-levelled as Fraxure does not evolve until Level 48. This was changed in Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, with her Haxorus' level increased by 16 as the Champion.

    • However, all of her Pokémon are capable of learning Dragon-Type moves.
    • Though she uses an Ice-type in the game, in the anime, Iris is unsettled around them.
  • As the champion, Iris seems to be dressed like a princess. In addition, her hairstyle resembles a Hydreigon.
  • Iris seems to have a darker shade of brown for eye color in White than in Black and White 2. (She cannot be battled in Black, so we cannot see her eye color)
  • She is the the youngest Champion, as she is 12 years old (same age as Ash Ketchum)
