To distinguish from the main-canon..., Grudge is a dark-midnight shade tone with a darker shade down arrow covering his forehead and gold freckles around his eyes and a red tint to the end of each pins. He has red eyes and oddly gold pupils more visible in his mega form.
Grudge, as of present times, still can be sometimes selfish but he worked on bringing up his courage. He originally didn't want to do anything that would bring harm to him if he really didn't have to and objectively used others or resources around him to solve his problems, which work temporarily. He is seen as intelligent and knows certain situation's intensity and has the capability to solve them, and currently he's putting it into a more lighter use.
Grudge is also shown to be stubborn and easy-tempered, sometimes insecure about certain things that make him appear soft or vulnerable.
Grudge's storyline is similar to canon with the only changes being;
- When stealing their mail, Grudge attempts to make conversation with Snaps in the background when Blossom is arguing but Blossom redirects his attention.
- Team Meanies win their battle twice, the second time Grudge instead spares Snaps and leaves her, not knowing Metapod was hiding in the bushes they passed.
- Grudge builds a hate relationship with Hyena every time Team Meanies pass by Snaps's house whether it's a visit attempt and inconvenience.
- When Team Arcane's messenger, Candelle, sets up a rescue mission on the board, Grudge attempts to discard it to keep their fail a disappearance, but Poincetto argued for Grudge to hand over the message. After a short conflict, Grudge and his allies lost and Poincetto and Kippie were able to rescue Snaps and Blossom and crew, setting up a negative relationship.
- The nightmare Grudge gives to Snaps is lighter but still a headache.
- Instead on by accident, Grudge intentionally rescues Snaps when she's unconscious after Sky Tower's events.
Grudge began to self-reflect on his self little by little. He felt jealous and undeserving of what Gardevoir done but he didn't know how to exactly act on it, conflicted. After seeing all Pokemon around him grow in their ways, he didn't want to be left behind, so he decided the next thing was to help her escape her curse though he still felt more of himself.
He attempted to first Climb Mt. Freeze for answers but was stopped by the intense snowfall and pressure. He continued to attempt at climbing, visually become less and less motivated until he gave up.
After Snaps rescued Ruth, a few days later after exploring the ruins, Grudge greeted Snaps at her doorstep during her supposed early-walk hours and asked for her help. Despite his treatment to Snaps, Snaps accepted. Throughout the climb to the top, everything ran smoothly. However at the peak, when Grudge revealed he was actually the human in the Ninetales tale, Snaps aggressively attempted to attack him, being stopped by Blossom.
Since, they had a small negative quarrel. Yet Grudge knew he couldn't make it through Murky Cave. This time, he approached Blossom who encourage Snaps to follow along. Throughout Murky Cave, Grudge attempted to apologize to Snaps and they ended up making amends and enjoy conversing.
At the end of the cave, Grudge was locked in place in the Confession cave where Snaps tells the truth but was denied anyway. Grudge stood up for himself and freed Gardevoir to which they left the cave and met at Snaps' house to say goodbye. Before Grudge left, he gave Snaps a mystic water.
After 20 days, Grudge returns after being informed that Snaps lost it. He entered the forest and calmed down Snaps due to having similar thoughts about himself as Snaps did. He relayed the information to everyone else.
1 year after, Team ACT settled a team retreat where two Pokemon from opposing rescue teams which Snaps was assigned with Grudge. In Sounded Grotto, Grudge and Snaps originally struggled with working with each other and oddly enough, sometimes they would upset each other. However quarrels stopped after Grudge and Snaps come into an agreement after Snaps saved Grudge from a Dragonite, and Grudge saved Snaps from a Victreebel. Their teamwork enhanced and together, boosted by Empowered Seeds, they were able to finish the dungeon to which they relaxed in the flower field. During the relaxation, Snaps gifts Grudge a flower crown made from Sunflowers, stating that it complimented him. Grudge accepted the gift, and after returning, Grudge returns home. Later he is shown to have put the flower in a plot on a desk next to his bed. After a week, he would leave to take a break and check up on the beam back home.
Explorers of Darkness, Time and the Skies
Grudge returns to sign up at Rescue Central, immediately when he and Snaps reunited, he hugged Snaps and remarked on how different she is. He's even astonished that she's the head of the central.
Coil doesn't see Grudge's side of him. Grudge believes he has grown to be stronger but is worried in the fact Coil is behind their level. He doesn't like the idea of bringing Coil into to many higher-intensity dungeons.
Both being humans, Grudge generally hated Snaps before his priority was in line. After realizing Snaps had access to Gardevoir in her dreams, Snaps's influence eventually left him to try and save her. On their way up Mt. Freeze and through Murky Cave, the two made a small bond between each other. Continously, Grudge appeared to built a crush on, as well as a need to protect Snaps.
