Nando (JP: Naoshi) is a recurring character in Pokémon XD^3: The Waves of Truth. He is voiced by Eric Stuart.
Nando is a traveling bard who wanders the lands of the world with his Pokémon. He is easily befriended by many, as he is an incredibly calm, polite and gentle man.
Unlike most, Nando participates in both Gym battles and Pokémon Contests. He has gathered a bit of fame for performing well in both fields.
One of Nando's chief interests is mythology, and he knows much of the folklore of many lands.
He has recently joined Rich's group temporarily, traveling with them to Passho City, and led the effort to rescue Rich and Paul from the Allergia Gardens.
