Persona 5 Meets Pokemon: The Phantom Thieves as Gym Leaders

8 of 8


Finally, we have Haru. Haru is the last character to join the main Phantom Thieves group. Her situation surrounding her Gym Leader typing is a bit different than the other members.

Her Persona allows her to use psychic attacks, but that's not the typing I'd give her. It fits Futaba much better. Instead, Haru should be a Grass-type specialist. With her love of gardening and plants, I'm sure it's exactly what she'd be attuned to. She even grows her own vegetables on the roof of their school.

She's normally a very relaxed and reserved person, but when push comes to shove, she can really pack a punch in a fight. Here are the six Grass Pokemon that Haru would use:


  • Bellossom
  • Roserade
  • Appletun
  • Tsareena
  • Leafeon
  • Pumpkaboo


Honestly, even though there hasn't been a crossover, Persona and Pokemon do have a few things in common gameplay-wise. Namely, the turn-based style and elemental attacks. Those slight similarities definitely help when imagining the Phantom Thieves as Gym Leaders.
