Eli, real name Elijah, is Bailey Ketchum's first opponent in the Indigo Plateau Conference. Eli is a trainer from the Unova Region. Unlike some of the other trainers that were very confidence, Eli was really nervous. With Bailey's help during the battle, he was able to defeat Bailey's Furret and Ledian with his Serperior, who evolved during the battle against Ledian.

| Serperior is Eli's main Pokémon and his best one. Unlike his trainer who lacked confidence, Serperior had a little more confidence but like his trainer, was a little nervous, since he knew his trainer didn't want to do Gym Battles. Serpeior is extremely loyal to Eli always trying to help him out and help him speak up for himself. Serperior evolved in battle against Bailey's Furret and defeated it and her Ledian before falling to her Kirlia.
When Eli lost against Bailey, Serperior comforted him helping Eli remember that despite their loss, they got something out of it: Servine evolving.
Serperior's known moves are Leaf Blade, Leaf Storm, Leaf Tornado, Energy Ball and Solar Beam.
| Zebstrika is the first Pokémon Eli brought out during his battle with Bailey. Despite being fully evolved, it still lost to Bailey's Furret, but it was a close battle.
Zebstrika's only known moves are Hyper Beam and Thunderbolt.
| Haxorus is the second Pokémon Eli revealed during his battle with Bailey. Unlike Eli and the rest of Pokémon, Haxorus was very confident, which ultimately led to his downfall to Bailey's Ledian.
Haxorus' known moves are Dragon Rage, Dual Chop, Dragon Claw, and Brick Break.
