Dustin is a main character in Pokémon: Legends of Unova.
Dustin has a haughty and self righteous personality, and has a tendency to belittle those around him, at one point calling Kira an "Air headed bimbo".
- Dustin is the only main character whose team lacks a Flying Type, as Lance has an Archen and Kira has a Rufflet.
- Unlike Lance and Kira, none of Dustin's Pokémon, except for Snivy, have confirmed genders, however he refers to them as males.
- Also unlike Lance and Kira, none of his Pokemon are single gender species.
- Lance, Kira, and Dustin each catch one of the Dragon Type Pokémon families introduced in Generation V. In Dustin's case he catches Druddgion.
- Dustin is the first trainer shown to own a Shiny Pokémon, his Darumaka.
