He is first met at the Outskirt Stand in the desert with his only two Pokémon, an Espeon and an Umbreon. They travel with him in his sand bike in the passenger car until Wes meets Rui.

Wes met Rui in Phenac City, after saving her from Folly and Trudly. She was ultimately surprised when she discovered his past, but doesn't care too much because he is her prince. Rui encourages Wes to open up more as they travel and begin a beautiful friendship. Eventually the two snag and save all the Shadow Pokémon and save Orre from Team Snagem, Cipher and their plans.

Not much is known about his story after he defeated Team Snagem as he is hardly even mentioned in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, but some think he may have gone off with Rui to live in peace.

  • Outside of Lucy Fleetfoot from Pokemon Trozei, Wes is the oldest playable character in a Pokemon game, as he was designed to be 17 instead of the usual 11 or 12.
  • Wes is the only character to start with more than one Pokemon, Espeon and Umbreon.
    • Trading with Colosseum (and XD, if Michael's Eevee is evolved into one of the two) is the only way for the handheld Generation III games to obtain the Generation II Eeveelutions, as Generation III's games do not have the time mechanic introduced in Generation II. Colosseum is preferred, as it is automatically guaranteed to have both Generation II Eeveelutions from the start whereas XD might not get either based on the player's choice.
